There are some games that are mostly worth playing for their soundtracks, but of course a fantastic game will usually be good in both areas.

I dunno.

But Ace Attorney 2 was easily the worst game in the series, due in part to it's crap trial music (although it has some of the best recolection themes).

No TC. Music is very important and can make or break a game.

Its a bitmore importat than graphics to me.

to me, If it is a new "franchise" (A game with no prequels or sequels yet) then I think it can get away with whatever music it wants to use, even if it's bad.

If the game is a sequel, or another installment in a franchise, it has a certain obligation that the music must be at least reminiscent of the previous games.

I am someone who is really heavily into soundtracks to games, shows, movies and such, so I could write a whole article about it and the methods composers use to make music from 1 piece of work all feel connected, how the music probably controls 80% of the feeling a certain "scene" or "video" is giving. but I am just too lazy right now to do so >.>;

as a side note, the lack of music is one reason I don't like reading books or comic books.

Depends. Do you primarily play rhythm games?

But seriously, music is a very important part of any entertainment medium. Basing half your opinion on just music alone might be a little weird though.

Son, a good soundtrack could make a text-based adventure with only one possible response to everything that lasts 30 seconds fun.
