The Daily Grind: What’s your favorite MMO holiday tune?

    
17

Seeing as how ’tis the season and all that, even the sound of MMOs is changing for the holidays. Christmas tunes are popping up here and there all over the place, so if you thought that you were going to get away from them by avoiding shopping malls and radio stations, think again.

In moderation, I love me some good Christmas music, and I enjoy what MMO composers have done to deliver their own take on the season through sound. I’m sure that many of you have a favorite track or two that pops up this time of year! So share those today (toss out a YouTube link to do diligence) so that we can pour ourselves a fattening cup of hot chocolate, pull on some over-fluffy socks, and listen along with you. What’s your favorite MMO holiday tune?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!

So, most people here consider the best MMO holiday tune to be a song composed by someone born and raised in a country where Christmas is a normal work day and the strongest Christmas traditions are going on a date with your girlfriend/boyfriend and eating strawberry shortcake :p

For me whether I am playing MMO’s or not the music I play at Christmas are the classics performed by the greats who were around waaaay before even my time as these were all I used to hear during my childhood christmas’s spent at my Grandparents wth all the family gathered together from all corners of the globe.

To me these are the sound of Christmas.

Pretty much the same at my parent’s place as well. So much so, it gets to a point if nothing is playing my pigtails start singing it. And as you can tell from my comment a few entries down…I am no a very Christmas person to begin with. o.O

I absolutely adore Carol of the Bells in its original form, but especially love it ramped up musically by Metallica, which weaves a pretty epic sound to listen to.

Hmm. Nope. I don’t remember any specific Xmas MMO music. Oh, there have been wintery tracks, for sure, but Xmas originals? I can’t recall any.

So, it’s back to Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer here at my house. An adopted song for MMO dailies.

FFXI Christmas Jeuno is the only one that exists for me. Have listened to it every year for the last decade even though I don’t play it anymore. It’s just so good.
