What are some games with rock or metal for their OSTs?
I feel like they're very rare these days where every other composer tries to be atmospheric like Hans Zimmer or try to copy Yuki Kaijura's repetitive one-woman wail orchestras.
I miss when games would dish out a sick ass guitar riffs then paired with face melting vocals like Twisted Metal, but I guess that would be too video gamey and not "art" like what most devs these days want.

Rock and heavy metal are dead and for good reason: they suck. Dane music and hip hop are today's mainstays

Isn't metal like the go-to genre for JRPG music? It's such a common trope in JRPGs to the point its eye-rolling.

It's a hit or miss for me. Some guitarists can really pull off some catchy riffs, but otherwise, most of the time it simply feels stale.
The lead music composer for Dynasty Warriors is my favorite of the bunch.

This is implying that what normies think is good music is good. Nigger shit like Kanye and Drake is absolute fucking dog shit. I was even able to hear several Drake songs I thought were just some pop filler crap and then get told that was him.

I'll never understand America. I'm just a lot of countries have some shitty music tastes. But Jesus everything popular here is pretty much god awful pop crap that is just offensive to the ears or some uninspiring nigger saying shit about MUH STREETS MUH EMOTIONS!

Folk metal is only good when it's basically Black Metal, can't stand that Scandi-Melo-Death with violins shit. Melo-Death is dead for a reason, and that reason is the only good band that makes it is At The Gates

Swedish style melodeath is absolutely shit; other countries like Canada and Japan have decent melodeath scenes. Melodeath is only good when its infused with brutal death metal or if its essentially OSDM with melodic leads.

There's also folk metal that emphasises the "folk". I like these, since they tend to present something unique to the culture where they come from.

Korpiklaani is the exact garbage I was talking about, it's just shitty Scandinavian melodeath with some some genuinely terrible and overblown folk instrumentation that fails to even understand what makes European folk music worth listening to

Jonathan Morales
Jonathan Morales

What's an example you'd bring to the table? At times Korpiklaani is very instrumentally overblown, but I'm not sure where you're coming from as to my ears it doesn't sound like other folk metal bands.

Also, here's mongolian folk metal. I feel like this also has a certain local cultural flair which I enjoy.

I can't stand "fusion" genres first of all so anything, my comment above stated the only good folk metal is basically just black metal with a couple folk instruments and I stand by that.
I also cannot stand Scandinavian style Melodic Death Metal which 99% of all folk metal bands have roots directly in. but to be fair I dont expect anyone here to enjoy my favorite bands either, since I'm mostly into super Gutteral Slam/Brutal Death Metal/Gore shit
