Have you ever bought a game because of the music?

Only music from rhythm games have influenced my decision, so no.

You don't have time to ponder such questions, as Bruce Willis has just grabbed a jet plane.

I put yes, but after thinking about it the music of course wasn't the only reason I got the game. However, I would say with Xenoblade Chronicles it was one of the main reasons I picked it up. I also own the 4-cd soundtrack and listen to it a few times a week. It's probably one of the best video game soundtracks I've ever heard.

Personally i prefer 720p. 1080p is just too many pixels

Yes:
- Guitar Hero games
- Sonic games (Sonic Adventure, Sonic Adventure 2, Sonic Heroes... Crush 40's music sounds so epic and motivational)


You know, a lot of people give Sonic music a lot of flak for having stupid lyrics, but the stupid lyrics are why it's awesome.

Lyrics THAT bad, are a work of art.

Good thing all of those games kicked ass in other categories.

I honestly have - Nights into dreams(saturn).

I remember renting the the system and the game when I was younger and was completely blown away by the music. Much later on, after the end of life of the system, I decided I'd build a small Saturn collection, bought Nights and the first thing I did was rip the soundtrack mp3.

Yes, I actually have. I downloaded (and later received a physical copy for my birthday) of the soundtrack of Tales of Legendia before I even owned a PS2. It was one of my favorite soundtracks of all time and I was very interested in seeing how it was used in-game. I was also a fan of the Tales series before that however. But then I found that Mr. Driller: Drill Land's soundtrack was composed by the same person, Masaru (aka Go) Shiina, and I ended up importing that game almost entirely for that reason. It also has one of my favorite soundtracks ever. I reviewed the game here: http://whattheycallgames.blogspot.com/2013/03/mr-driller-drill-land-can-you-dig-it.html

If rhythm games don't count, then no.

That sounds a bit silly to me. The whole reason to play a game is the gameplay.

The music is good but not really necessary.
