When Guild Wars released in 2005, it was the shit. It proved that games can be innovative, affordable, streamlined, fun, strategy, and not require tons of grinding. It was, and still is, one of the most innovative online games made. It is a great game, but one aspect of the game got its hooks into me: The music.
Jeremy Soule is one of the most famous video game music composers. Every area in the game had it's own sweeping, orchestral song that fit in with the beautiful scenery, be it tranquil forests with falling petals to scorching hellfires, The music was marvelously spot on. Jeremy Soule, the composer of the entire Guild Wars soundtrack, knows his way around orchestral pieces and it shows. Jeremy is also well know for composing the soundtrack of Morrowind. I've included both a piece from Guild Wars and Morrowind. I hope you enjoy!
