What Artists Would You Like To Make a Games OST?


#1

I know Thumper exists but personally I’d really dig it if lightning bolt got to score a character action game or a game about racing through the desert, just add whoever you think would be cool and what genre of game they’d score.


#2

There hasn’t been much soul and R&B tracks in video games since peak 90’s Sega, and that really needs to change! Like get Pharrell to produce a game or two like at the very least, imo.


#3

I’d like to see Chad VanGaalen do the art and music for a game. He does the art for his music videos. There’s nothing like it in games that I’m aware of.


#4

I think Daft Punk could make a stellar game soundtrack if they put some good effort into it


#5

I want Trent Reznor to score a GTA game (Phillip Glass was juuusttt theees sttaarrtttt in that trailer)
I’d also like Vangelis to do a Mass Effect game, and New Order to do a Hotline Miami game.

Revealing a lot of my musical tastes here…


#6

They were gonna do a Lumines game, but then Disney came along with the Tron project and they did that instead.


#7

Flying Lotus scores a Metroidvania


#8

WHY DID YOU HAVE TO TELL ME OF THIS AAAAAAH

Oh well what could have been… That Tron is like an amazing consolation prize.


#9

I once read that Joshua Homme (of Kyuss and Queens of the Stone Age fame) was supposed to do some OST scoring for Spec Ops, before it became Spec Ops: The Line. I kinda really want to know what that would have sounded.


#10

i’d love to see what xiu xiu would do with an ost. or baths/geotic. or puce mary, for something terrifying. also the liz harris and lawrence english collaboration ‘slow walkers’ already feels like an atmospheric horror soundtrack.


#11

John Carpenter. Give me that sound in a horror game and I’d probably be on the verge of a panic attack no matter how scary the rest of the game is.


#12

Daddy Yankee, Chingon, Juanes, Usher, Ludacris, Pitbull, Flo Rida. Set it in Miami and let it ride.


#13

these are all incredibly good suggestions thanks


#14

Actress


#15

I’ve always thought Tobacco could do a really amazing score to some sort of psychedelic action/horror…thing:


#16

The past couple years I’ve convinced myself that Motorlicker would be a great song for an opening sequence for a game or an anime opening.
