We’re talking about music in context of gaming so I feel like it shouldn’t matter that much how much you’d listen to it outside of it. Good music is designed to compliment, support, and/or elevate the game it’s made for and we shouldn’t treat it like pure music.
Like it’s cool if it’s good taken on it’s own but that’s a separate convo, a separate category. It doesn’t seem right to knock a game’s music cause you wouldn’t listen to it by itself.
One of my fav OST is from the movie Millennium Actress but it just doesn’t have the same impact on its own. That doesn’t mean it’s not great, it just means it’s an intregral component of something that was meant to be taken together as a whole.
This isn’t a reaction topic to today’s podcast, just a question that came to mind while listening to it.
