So in our game Einherjar I put in songs with lyrics (all PURCHASED and legally LICENSED btw) as an experimental thing. Got the idea after playing GTA games actually. I personally loved the music, but quite a few players absolutely hated it. Interestingly, it wasn't the specific song they hated, but rather the idea of playing a song with lyrics in the background, which apparently distracts some players during play, especially in an rpg. Never thought about that before. So that got me thinking a few questions: 1. How do you feel about using songs with lyrics in games, especially RPGs? 2. Do you think they should only be in cut scenes? Can they be used in battle? 3. What games have, in your opinion, successfully used songs with lyrics in their game? Why did you think it was used well?
