Hi, I stumbled upon this question after I realize I never turn on the BGM when playing games (well, most of it). I find it quite annoying, sfx will do just fine for me in most games. I wonder how many of you guys feel the same way ? Developers (mostly indies) usually struggle with audio production cause making a good song is expensive and with our budget we ended up with crappy repetitive BGM. This is bad cause usually reviewers will bash your audio/sound quality (I read alot about this) I agreed on making BGM for the opening menu but I'm not so sure about making BGM for the game itself cause I'll probably can't afford to produce several good songs. So why do we need to make BGM for our games ? Is it really necessary ? What do you guys think ?
