I'm doing it now Korriban Dark is playing ;) )

At work I have music playing in iTunes all day, but at home this weekend I've had the JK site open in a window ... listening to all 7 tunes whenever I open up my Powerbook.

Naw - instead I've taken my OT SE CD's and the CD's from TPM and AotC and rippped them and put quite a bunch of it on my iPod. That way when the mood strikes me I can listen.

Has anyone noticed the naming of the MP3's?

The Academy theme is named MP_Action1.mp3

The Jedi theme is named MP_Action2.mp3

The rest are named more or less as shown.

Interesting.

I like listening to real music. IMO game music is only meant for games, not for all your friends to play as loud as ya want in your car. :rolleyes:

Same here... Whenever I play JK I always turn the music off -- I just can't stand it.

Not on the pages, but I do rip all of the music of all of my games and put 'em a CD.

We don't want to go there. John Williams writes 'real' music. I do enjoy it, along with many other 'real' artists whose music is not in games, and certainly not on any 'real music' radio sttattions.

I like the Star Wars music, and also some of the Star Trek music. Some games have inane music ... like SoFII. But themes that are evocative I like along with gaming.

You guys never listen to Star Wars Music? I pity you. Go to your CD Player, put in Star Wars, and listen good Sonny! :p

Hey, just because it's music from a video/computer game doesn't mean it's inappropriate to play it. For example, I listen to the Metroid Prime soundtrack. Most of my friends that I've talked to can't get enough of its music. A friend of mine's going to get the Legend of Zelda: the Wind Waker soundtrack as well. If it's good music, I don't care where it came from. *runs off to try to find Medal of Honor: Frontline soundtrack.*

I have never played Jedi Academy. I did convert the music files from Unreal Tournament to .wav and put em all on two CDs.

There's a reason why there isn't just one radio station - and why most of what could reasonably be considered as 'creative' isn't on any commercial radio station. Tastes vary by the individual, but the majority are willing to be sold to and accept the lowest common demoninator.

I'm sure that based on what you listen to there are names you could be called as well.

Where i live if you like anything to do with star wars even games then you are automatically a nerd, so i guess im a super nerd cause i read the books as well:p

Yeah i voted yes, good music, if you like game music try converting the music in deus ex, its pretty good, thers a special program for it somewere.

I admit, im a nerd...i really dont care, i dont think listening to different music makes one a nerd, but if you see it that way, so be it. But im sure people where you live call you a nerd aswell :rolleyes:

But didn't you also say:

? :confused:

Personally I have three rules of music:

1. Music is great.

2. There is much music I either don't like or artists for whom I have no respect .

3. When #2 is true, remember #1 ...

As an addendum to #1 - sountrack music is music, game music is music.

Listen to what YOU like and enjoy ... life is too short to worry about everyone else's musical tastes ...

Yeah, i did say that. I dont listen to that kind of music from games, but i just dont see how someone can be a nerd just for doing so.

It is interesting ... all of these things are fun at first, but get boring - if not annoying - after a while. I had the JA site open, then opened the Rebel Strike Site, and also was looking at Harry Potter stuff for my kids and a LotR site ... I just had to mute my computer for the multiple music sources !!!

John Williams' Star Wars music may not be Beethoven's 9th or Duke Ellington, but it surely isn't Britney Spears/Eminem/Coldplay/<insert generic pop productized icon here> either ...

Just wondering, but does anyone listen to the Morrowind soundtracks?

the only time i listen to game tracks is when i play the actual game, otherwise its stuff like spineshank, prodigy, mnemic, 40 below summer, sparta, deftones, immortal, frenzal rhomb(aussie punk band)... well i listen to alot of stuff
