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

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.)

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

Hm...After some quick searching on youtube, indeed it does.

Also here are some more Sim City 3000 Tracks people have posted on YouTube:

Ah, why is the video gaming potential of Jazz so otherwise ignored?
I wouldn't mind some Dave Brubeck or Miles Davis while taking on Bowser...

One of the most unappreciated songs, Ripple Star theme.
I thought it deserved some praise since it has an awesome jazzy toon.

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

Gosh, the entire Final Fantasy 7 soundtrack was gold.  I don't know many that deny that.

I still love "I'm Still Alive" by GLADoS.

*Necrobump*

I thought "Dear hearts and gentle people" was really nice when they used it in the fallout 3 trailer. Ironic appropriation, and all that. Oh, and fallout 2 had a jazz song in it, so it's not just the SC' series.

Still alive WAS awesome the first time I heard it. And the second time. And the third time. And the fourth, badly sung, time. And the fifth time, well, by then I'd lost my appreciation.
