Music to play Skyrim to

Post » Wed Sep 07, 2011 6:28 pm

A while back I saw a few threads floating around where folks discuss the music they will be listening to as they play Skyrim and now, when I finally get the idle notion to throw in my two cents on one, it looks like they sank into the forums beyond a depth my lazy ass is willing to go. Page 2, maybe.

The folks in those discussions seemed more concerned with metal and hard rock anyway. So I figured I'd start a conversation more concerned with the folksier side of things, music one may find more fitting for a fantasy of Skyrim's nature. I aim to share a few of my own choice tunes as well, in the hopes that at least a few folks out there may have their gaming experience enhanced by 'em. Feel free to do the same yourself.

I usuallly listen to ingame music. Though, I'm going to break from tradition and play "rock the dragon" when I see the first one ingame. :P

Celtic Rock and/or some viking [censored] for the battle scenes.

but for enjoying the landscapes definitely some old acoustic folk and light stuff.

I'll probably listen to the in-game music most of the time but I'll likely turn on some folk metal if I'm feeling like Conan. Maybe I can even mod in folk metal for the combat music!! That would be pretty neat.

I'll probably dub it over with some or

Just got this cd not long ago. The entire thing would work perfectly.

Here's a of one of the full songs. They craft instruments out of animal hides and bones and raw earth. The lyrics are about interpreting the runes. Awesome stuff.

I don't see how anyone could ruin the experience by playing music other than Skyrims music while playing.
