Just realize this while watching last week's TNT then played some Rock of Ages:
- Both are 2 player-based competitive game.
- Both are about destroying opponent's castle/base, anything on the path are just obstacles (Return Fire use Capture The Flag as players are on the same map, Rock of Ages added Tower Defense bit as players are on each other's map).
- One plays Messiah: Hallelujah Chorus by Handel when you burn the base, the other plays (Dies Irae) Requiem Mass in D minor by Mozart when you smash the castle's gate.
See it for yourself:
after 55:00 mark
after 20:00 mark
Nice to see some of the great 3DO spirits are carried forward :)
Not really game related, but Handel described himself seeing heaven upon completion of Hallelujah Chorus, while Mozart died during the composition of Requiem.
