its more that music that is popular is often seen as bad by alot of us here on fj, right now in the top 10 chart (uk) there are 2, maybe 3 songs i would say are good, and i think most of FJ would agree. no ones (or no one sane) is trying to say all music made today is bad, its just what is popular is mostly crap.
#308 to #147 - blancka (01/11/2014) [-]
Most of FJ hates everything "normal" (for lack of a better word) people like out of nothing more than an inferiority complex and need to differentiate from those people, because of reasons such as being treated badly by these in school.
See: FJ's unwarranted hatefest for the big bang theory and FJ's sudden hatred of ragefaces when they became popular.

depend on your kind of music, i for one HATE rap, HIP HOP, and most pop, i do like Garage punk (sex pistols and such) and classic hard rock and heavy metal. So its not that old music is better its just that old music is alot more me.
#289 to #191 - theplogyr (01/11/2014) [-]
>Implying that there aren't new "classic heavy metal/hard rock/garage punk"-sounding bands. Or that you have listened to all of the old ones.


Go **** yourself, unculture4d MTV kids, or learn to use google to search for stuff you like.
User avatar #213 to #12 - mrsonic (01/11/2014) [-]
Yes, but finding the good in this insanely big and stupid music industry is really hard, because you find albums by people's ****** tastes. While it's so much easier to see a well rated, insanely well selling videogame on a console, where most of those have really good and long soundtracks. Think about it that way.
User avatar #286 to #213 - hydraetis (01/11/2014) [-]
No it isn't. It's as simple as just looking for what you want. Like pop? Search for pop. Like metal? search for metal. Search filters exist for a reason.
#285 to #213 - blancka (01/11/2014) [-]
Most games don't have good sountracks at all. The only real way you're going to get a guaranteed good soundtrack is from a series known for it like final fantasy. Plenty of games have **** soundtracks, or at least mediocre ones.
User avatar #299 to #285 - mrsonic (01/11/2014) [-]
Well yeah, you can't just go to a random game and expect something good. But it's very easy to follow a company/series/composer and get exactly what you want. I also think I'd rather listen to VG music because it's much more based on melodies, and a certain feel of whatever it's meant for in the game. Whereas vocal music is much more about some catchy background instruments, and what the person is SAYING, and not the melodic lines that he/she sings. Of course, there are still a lot of people that just do plain music, with no one singing, and some of them are really really good. But there's nothing for you to follow music like that. They all still have their own genres, and unless you're searching by an author you can't just go and find what you want. And that's also insanely possible for Videogame music too, there are a lot of insanely good composers.

tl;dr, opinions.

Gotta love Marty o' Donnell,; his work on Myth was also ******* great. It sucks he's not composing for the Halo series anymore. Halo 4 didn't have nearly the same atmosphere as the previous Halo games, and at times even sounded like it was ******* Star Wars.
User avatar #373 to #371 - ztron (01/12/2014) [-]
Yeah, I remember thinking of star wars in the opening cut scene for the composer level (That space station level if that isn't the name). I hope for the next halo they try to grasp more of Marty feel to the music, because I only liked like three songs from Halo 4.
User avatar #55 to #13 - personz ONLINE (01/11/2014) [-]
I got into Two Steps from Hell after I found out that they did at least part of the Mass Effect soundtrack, actually. I have to highly recommend them to you in case you didn't know about them yet.

"Today's music."

You mean radio music, right? The popular stuff? Well no **** , video game music is usually written by schooled professionals and composers.

Other than that, it's preference. There's more music out there than any of us know about.
User avatar #351 to #41 - theincrediblegoose (01/11/2014) [-]
Other than that it's preference..? Why is that the exception? You're not allowed to like radio music more than video game music? Who decided that and why is it a rule?

Looks like the sign of Nerevar Moon And Star, which was used quite often in Morrowind.
#327 to #324 - hodgepod (01/11/2014) [-]
I knew it was something TES III
I haven't played Morrowind since atleast the last decade, I really need to get back in to it
User avatar #330 to #327 - adu ONLINE (01/11/2014) [-]
It's $20 on Steam for GOTY edition, and there are plenty of mods out there to help make it look better and patch some of the ancient bugs.
#331 to #330 - hodgepod (01/11/2014) [-]
Sadly I'm now a console peasant, so modding would be limited with my crappy laptop if I got it on PC again
I used to play Morrowind back on PC years ago, but now I'm confined to my Xbox 360
I've always wanted to play Skyrim on PC too, especially with the modding community
Hell, maybe even try that Skywind remake that's being made too, that seems really interesting
User avatar #333 to #331 - adu ONLINE (01/11/2014) [-]
Even with a ****** computer, Morrowind is over 11 years old, so you should be able to get SOME mods running, like the bug patches at least.

There is no genre called 'today's music'. Todays music, like music of every age, is a wild variety of every genre existing- ranging from classical to death metal to aggrotech to dubstep. The term 'Today's music' being used as a synonym for crappy pop music with ****** lyrics is one of the few things that piss me off.

The best Halo song imo Halo 4 OST - "117" 12
User avatar #284 to #283 - thebestpieever ONLINE (01/11/2014) [-]
Yeah, a lot of Halo works great in the game. But there's like 4 sounds I would listen to on my own volition. Like that track, I remember the part in the game, but I wouldn't sit with headphones in my head to listen to it.
User avatar #287 to #284 - mkchillin (01/11/2014) [-]
I guess it's just a fanboy thing but damn 117 is one hell of a song to blare with headphones and just lose yourself in, for me at least
User avatar #291 to #287 - thebestpieever ONLINE (01/11/2014) [-]
Halo hurt me. I will never look at him the same way.
Yeah, every now and then we'll have a fling, go to the beach for ten hours, play with some strangers on the beach for about 8. Then he'll drop me off at my house, offering to call me later but after what he did I can't bring myself to open my heart again.

If you're referring to Halo 4, then don't let it taint your perception of the Bungie trilogy. The original Halo trilogy will always be revered and respected regardless of what people think of 343's efforts

I'm actually talking about 3.
I thought I might get back into Halo with Reach but 4 was a disappointment too.

Halo 3 is the greatest video game ever made!  not literally but in my eyes and it's the consensus that it's a fantastic game  What did you not like about it and 4?

I felt 3 was extremely linear and navigating it was boring. I didn't like the selection of weapons (which was a problem in two for me too but that had other great things) so I got married to the same kit for the whole game. I didn't like that they put drones in the actual hordes instead of making them environmental hazards like in Two. The lack of elites made the plasma weapons basically useless since enemy with shields were extremely rare (about 1 in every horde). And save for the brute spiker (or whatever it's called) I didn't like the new brute weapons. I also felt that no weapon had an appropriate punch save for the shotgun and even there it was pretty blande. And for a melee-happy guy like me it was also pretty unsatisfying when you hit stuff. It didn't feel as good and empowering as Two or Reach. The only thing I liked were the Scarab fights actually.

I haven't played 4 nearly as much (I tried and failed to get to the end of 3 for like 4 years) but it also felt overtly linear. I didn't like the new weapons or enemies nor the new controls. I actually liked a couple new weapons though, like the new machine gun. But overall it felt boring again, for me anyone.

Okami Soundtrack - Giving Kushinada A Ride

I'd say okami is a must. Quite unpopular, unfortunately (I think it got an award for the least successful game or something, given that ign said it was game of the year and it sold very few copies)
User avatar #182 to #173 - kietzu (01/11/2014) [-]
Didn't it get a lot of crap at first because people mistakenly thought it was ripping off Twilight Princess?

Unpopular? I thought it one of those games everybody knew about.
User avatar #196 to #182 - calmyourtits (01/11/2014) [-]
Dunno, most of the people I've asked about okami didn't know about it.

Regarding what I said before: "...These factors have led for Ōkami to be called the "least commercially successful winner of a game of the year award" in the 2010 version of the Guinness World Records Gamer's Edition.", extracted from wikipedia (list of commercial failures in video gaming)
User avatar #206 to #196 - kietzu (01/11/2014) [-]
That's actually really sad for it to turn out like that.

But as I said I was planning on playing it eventually. It shouldn't be too hard to get a copy of. I hope.

well then maybe you just don't like music. musicians have never stopped making good music, the coverage on that music just happens to be substantially less, which means people would have to get off their asses to actually look for it. there's thousands of musicians of bands in the world, and there's more and more everyday, all making their own songs and in many cases trying to achieve a unique, original, and entertaining style. lots of music today is ******* great. no matter what genre you like, there's always as much good stuff to discover as there is ******** . just look for it

User avatar #256 to #243 - vissova (01/11/2014) [-]
Well than that's a very narrow-minded way of thinking about it. There is literally so much music in the world and such an infinite supply to come in the future, it's impossible for you to dislike even half of it.
You need to open up your mind to new possibilities and new things or you're going to end up imprisoning yourself in a metaphorica l small brick room the rest of your life.

it's not about liking everything, i don't think one can like everything. but disliking mostly everything? that sounds like a stretch
User avatar #266 to #263 - vissova (01/11/2014) [-]
You're absolutely correct. It's impossible to like everything the world has to offer.
