Ah, the shareware days! Epic (the publishers of OMF2097) was one of the pioneers of the distribution model. I loved their DOS games, and especially the soundtracks. Without access to sheet music, I learned to play those themes by ear on the piano :)

You hear this type of music in most movie trailers today
Yeah but it is also a perfect match for the atmospherics of the ME games, loads of the music in them I normally wouldn't give a second thought to but much of it is so appropriate for the game mood, I mean Bioware released the full soundtrack for the 3 games when they released the legendary edition last month and there was nearly 4 hours of tunes.

There are games with a OST of up to 5 hours !

Went back to play Hatsune Miku for the first time in years.

I always liked this song / rhythm map:

Of course, if you don't want to hear the game-buttons being pushed, the original music video is:

And yes, if the voice sounds a bit robotic, that's the point. Hatsune Miku is a computer program, practically an "instrument" that's programmed by artists. Virtual singer if you haven't been introduced to this before. But in Japan its caused a huge number of artists to get a "singer" on their music, so a lot of Hatsune Miku songs are... seriously good compositions.

"Future Tone" is just a collection of 200+ songs (plus button-maps so that you have a basic video game on top of it). So the soundtrack is just... huge. Made by a huge variety of musicians of various skill levels. And with DLC songs constantly popping up, I don't think its really feasible to find a collection of the whole soundtrack.

---------------

A 2nd "virtual singer" (a "sister" of Hatsune Miku) is Rin, and my favorite song with her voice is Tokyo Teddy Bear:

--------

There are two male singers. I actually like the slightly lower voice of Kaito over Rin's twin brother Len. But I'm pretty sure Len is more popular... anyway, Kaito's "Snowman" is pretty good IMO.


No. I don't speak Japanese, I have no idea what they're saying, lol. Insert weeaboo taunts here.

--------

Their most popular song is probably... Senbonzakura? If I were to take a guess?

Amiga anybody? I've never owned one myself, but a few of my school buddies did. I remember how much I coveted their A500 for its sound capabilities:
