If you're one of those gamers who installs a game and immediately
disables the music and sound effects, you could be missing out.
We took a look at several games this decade that really stood out in
terms of musical score and sound effects. We wanted to award the winner
as one that not only had an emotional, powerful score, but one that
would be remembered for years to come.
The winner this year did just that. A powerful musical composition only
heightened the experience of the game itself, often becoming an
auditory experience that could be likened to a cinematic feature film.
The Best Sound & Score of the Decade goes to...
Conan: Hyborian Adventures (Funcom)
The Lord of the Rings
had such a powerful score it prompted many players to get a copy of the
soundtrack on CD. It's no wonder, considering the talent behind the
soundtrack. British Academy Award winner Jeremy Soule was able to
capture and immortalize the gaming experience behind Guild Wars
score is appropriately suspenseful in tense combat, and airy, but no
less potent in exploration.
Guild Wars is not only able to tell a story well, but the music and
sound wins a well-earned spot in the Ten Ton Hammer Decade Awards.
