Games, RPGs in particular, would be a lot better with rap music

I can see one with like using some of the new styles, that's heavily influenced my other genres, but nothing along the lines of Lil Wayen, or Ice cube lmao unless it was a Gangsta RPG. "San Andreas The Road to Riches anyone"?

Something like this

"Rap music" is a contradiction in terms. You sing to music, you don't talk to it.

And the only thing that would be enhanced with Rap is ... the landfill, where the CD's and memory chips holding "rap music" get tossed.


As old as it makes me sound when I say it... This. I agree with this man.


Allow me to remedy your ignorance

1) Music (noun)

a : the science or art of ordering tones or sounds in succession, in combination, and in temporal relationships to produce a composition having unity and continuity

http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/music

2) Song (noun)

1
: the act or art of singing
2
: poetical composition
3
a : a short musical composition of words and music

http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/song

Poetry over music indeeds constitutes a song, because a song is spoken (rapped, spoken, sung), music is played. They are not synonymous terms unless you are too uneducated to know the difference. Rap is as much a song style as is spoken word, singing or even the screaming popular in post hardcore subgenres of rock.

ITT: People who don't know the definitions of the words they use

ITT: People who don't know much about music and songs.

The World Ends With You had a few, hip hopish songs in the battle music, and that games soundtrack was amazing.

Rather than needing a specific genre, I think that game soundtracks would benefit so much more if they didn't have a generic orchestral soundtrack.

Why do you think the soundtracks of P3 or P4 are so popular? It's not some generic orchestral OST.

Not that orchestral soundtracks are bad, but more so that they're so cookie-cutter these days.

Throw in some Wayne, Drake, Souja Boi, or more of the best in the game and it would make those RPG battles feel a lot more epic.

Just imagine the boss battles in Ni No Kuni as "Fear" by Drake plays.


Your tastes are god awful. Tupac, Wu Tang, this is rap. People that had real talent.

lol TC..

answer is no, rpg is usually fantasy you dont mix it with rap.
if you think its good you should stay away from designing, you dont have the taste to be an artist. dont get me wrong I have tons of rap CD i blast them while driving my car, but thats pretty much the only place i play rap music on.

on video games probably only GTA is the only game you put rap music on, or probably racing games too. i might accept shooting games but thats for run/gunners grunts who gets killed first, im more of a stealth player so i need tottaly silence.
