Taverns are a common fixture in fantasty games, and sound designers differentiate taverns and inns, places to rest, by giving them unique ambient noises such as people talking to each other, fireplace crackling, or jolly music playing in the background.
Sometimes, a game developer will go one step further and include bards in the games. The Elder Scrolls games have had bards in their games, and the same is true for BioWare's latest game, Dragon Age: Inquisition. They serve as a great way to introduce exposition in a natural way instead of forcing it on players. In The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim, lyrics for a song differ based on the political alignment of the region that you are in. In Dragon Age: Inquisition, songs match the plot development as you progress through the game.
Are there any tavern songs that you like from video games that you play?
