Title: Video Game Music
Post by: joesushi on November 05, 2007, 05:33:19 AM
Some of my favorite game soundtracks include the Streets of Rage series, and the Wangan Midnight Maximum Tune series. Both composed by Yuzo Koshiro. The Sonic and Mario games also had great music but lately Ive been enjoying the Armored Core Silient Line OST, the blend of electronic and orchestral elements is amazing. So what are your favorite game songs or osts?

Silent Hill :3

I also like the soundtracks for the first DMC, the Spyro games, Final Fantasy IX and X, and um, lol, Riven.

One of my favorite soundtracks ever is the Super Castlevania IV one, it's incredible what they did back in 1991 with the SNES sound chip. I even bought the akumajou dracula best 2 CD-set for this soundtrack, it's the only OST I own.
The Sonic games for Genesis have also some of the most memorable tunes... especially 1 and 2. "Green Hill Zone", "Marble Zone", "Aquatic Ruins Zone", "Death Egg Zone", etc... all classics. Sonic 3 & Knuckles also had some awesome ones like "Hydrocity Zone", "Flying Battery Zone" and "Sky Sanctuary Zone".
Koji Kondo, of course I love his works... some of my favorite works from him are the Super Mario World OST (the "Forest of Illusion" map bgm is awesome) and the Zelda Ocarina and Majora ones.
Other OSTs I love include the Goemon/Mystical Ninja series, F-ZERO X, Twin Bee, NiGHTS, Streets of Rage, Guilty Gear X, Donkey Kong Country series, Dragon Ball Z Super Butoden 2, and lots more.

ps: just for kicks, one of the most awesome songs in the videogame history.  8) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dRj7XVFd3Ic

My favorites are probably um... Guilty Gear XX #Reload Korean OST and the Dracula Perfect Battle cds. I guess you could also include Tears For The Lovers, but thats a doujin cd remixing the Y's OST with guitars n shiz. If anyone wants an awesome place to download full OSTs just go to http://gh.ffshrine.org/soundtracks/view-all . They've got just about every game OST you could ever want (even Chu Chu Rocket! FTW!). It is a bit tedious to dl them one track at a time, but the speeds are pretty good :-*

Mmm...Shadow of the Colossus is definitely my favorite. I also like the soundtracks to Legend of Dragoon, Final Fantasy IX, Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver (Ozar Midrashim = ♥), God of War, Parasite Eve, and pretty much all the Twisted Metal and Metal Gear: Solid games.

Post by: Champ213 on November 05, 2007, 09:06:12 PM
Soul Calibur II + III, Final Fantasy VII, Myst and, umm.... Monkey Island?

These are probably some 50% of all games I ever played in my life, so I can't really compare much.

I like Jet set radio - jet set radio future, Persona series ost - especially errors of their youth CD, Silent hill 2 - 4 and SH5 sound should be great too;
Dead or alive 2 had really great sound, though DOA3 and 4 suck imho;
final fantasy VI opening is the greatest jrpg theme I've ever heard;
I also liked Lunar - silver star story and eternal blue tracks;
Klonoa 2 and Ico tunes also left something after hearing.

upd. Sonic the hedgehog 3 for MD :333

I enjoyed the xenogears soundtrack. Threads of Fate, Grandia II, Skies of Arcadia, and Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne had pretty good soundtracks I might add.

Shadow of the colossus was decent as well.

Guilty Gear's soundtrack was nice, but it didn't really stick out too much. I dunno...Don't forget Katamary Damacy. XD

We should say for me Neo-Geo and Street Fighter series had some of finest music..... Off course there are others. ...But it all depends on the mode and what is your perspective of music. ....

I'm still trying to learn ryu's theme on the guitar. I also like the music in Capcom vs SNK 2 remix, darkstalkers mfms, and Last blade 2.
