Best/Underrated songs used in Video Games!
« on: June 05, 2008, 11:08:23 pm »
Post your favourite video game music/track that you feel is underrated, unknown or just plain awesome.

-Samples of the song is greatly appreciated!-

 Ill start it off.


Game: Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles

Song: Sound of the WInd - Square Enix

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ne-YGPlHAi0" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ne-YGPlHAi0</a>

This song is just so beautiful. It always manages to take me far away, completely submerging me into that fantasy world of crystals and caravans. 


Much <3

No, Haseri, No. That song is the most overrated song in Video Games.

(I still like it though)
No way dude, you're trolling me.

You can stop the movie at about 4:16 though, because the music stops there, and the story begins. Unless, of course, you're interested in the story, which is good :)

Although not an official track in the game, I thought this was quite impressive

Game: Half-Life 2


<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nTbL5elVXrU" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nTbL5elVXrU</a>

They should put it in as an unlockable easter egg in Episode 3 :D

Kirby64: Zero Two

Elegantly made for an N64 title.

Kid: Oh wow I'm being deflowered by a grown woman!
Mother: By the way I'm your mother
Kid: OH GOD NO

EDIT: That's where it becomes rape if you were wondering.

What game is this for and what year was it made in?

It has sparked my interest.

I know I've said this previously but Sim City 3000 is probably the only Video Game I've seen with nearly an All Jazz soundtrack. Actually I'm not sure I've seen any other games with Jazz songs on their soundtrack period.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kcl-sWdnTU8" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kcl-sWdnTU8</a>

Seriously, can anyone think of any other games that have a single Jazz song in them?
The entire industry is missing out.
(If you haven't guessed, Jazz is my favorite genre of music.)

What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

I think Transport Tycoon has Jazz songs in its playlist too, I'm not sure though.
