Welcome to the Music and Sound forum on GD.net. Pull up a chair, listen to some tracks by your peers and discuss all things music and sound. We're happy to have you. Please check out the FAQ link for some basic (and mostly common sense) approaches used in this forum. If you have any questions, feel free to PM me.
Music for games depends much on which country it is released in, for example, in the UK, dance music goes better, while in Australia, rock does better. But since most indie developers can''t afford different types of music for each different country (That is, if the game goes international, anyway), I was wondering what you all think is the best type of music for each type of game.
My personal opinion is that for strategy games, a sort of war march theme works best (sorta like the starcraft and warcraft music). For action games and also RTS (but not turn based strategy) I think industrial music works, since it has fast beats, and is a good compromise between electronic music and rock. And classical music is great for those battles with the biggest bosses (Like Sephiroth on Final Fantasy 7).
I''d like to get other people''s opinions on this.
