Greatest Videogame Music
« on: September 18, 2006, 04:55:40 pm »
Music (and sound in general) seems to be vastly overlooked in the world of videogames. We should all take a moment to appreciate some of our favorite videogame music of all time.

Mine would include that from the Zelda, Metroid (Prime), Halo, and Final Fantasy.

What is some of your favorite videogame music?

My current favorites are some of the stuff from Dead Rising. I really like the instrumental stuff in the beginning while in the helicopter.

I hate the music from the new Zelda trailer... oh my god it is so bland... thats my opinion though.

I love love love the Final Fantasy Overture. The song that is in each game. It was the first song you hear in FFI.
And Zelda's Lullaby.
And Aeris' Theme.
And the Glitzville song!!!

Wheee!



Actually, you saved me from making a rather useless topic. If anyone can find me the orchestrated version of the Final Fantasy Overture, feel free to tell me.

Oh! Another favorite that comes to mind are the water levels in Super Mario 64. You know, that nice, soft, relaxing music? It set the perfect mood for the level.

Far and away, the two best music soundtracks are from two PC strategy games. Fantasy General and Heroes of Might and Magic 2. Nothing else is even close. If you haven't heard these two, I highly recommend picking them up (you can probably Ebay them for about $2 now) and giving them a listen.

Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis had an amasing soundtrack in my opinion.

Whoa!

You mean I am not the only person here who LOVED that game?

I still go back to it from time to time.

The Castlevania series has a lot of fantastic music, especially Symphony of the Night.
And while I've come to mostly dislike the Megaman series, I do enjoy pretty much all its music.
I actually like most of the tyrant themes for Resident Evil games, especially "The 2nd Malformation of G" from RE2.

Cobra mentioned that he likes Donkey Kong Country's water music tracks; I'd have to agree with you there. My particular favorite is DKC 3's water theme.

I guess I don't have a specific track I could proclaim is greatest. My taste shifts around too much.
And I have way too many favorites, usually a handful from each game's sountrack. To list them all would be inane. :-\

Best site for amassing your faves.


Also, I'm surprised someone hasn't yet brought up Final Fantasy VII's One-Winged Angel as their all time favorite.
'cause really... at any given point in time, someone is raving about this damn track.
