Best video game music

My vote goes to Yuzo Koshiro's work on the Actraiser soundtrack, especially the orchestral version available here. Everything about it is just so epic. Shame the music in Actraiser 2 sucked so horribly.

Honourable mention goes to the Sonic Adventure games. While they were necessarily hit-and-miss given how diverse they were musically, there were a lot of really great songs in both games.

I really like The Who, but sadly no videogames have their music in the game :( I'm gonna sue.

Oh yeah... I really like the music in Fable: The Lost Chapters. I dunno, I just like it, it's really soothing when it needs to be.
You killed Harry Potter  >:( !!!!!
Yes. Yes I did.

The only song worth listening to on that site is World Revolution from the Chrono Trigger soundtrack.

This is FACT.

I generally just like anything cool and epic sounding. In most games I don't concentrate too much on the soundtrack.


A funny thing is though, that every time I hear the castle music from Super Mario World I get a chill through my spine. Mainly due to HOW MANY FREAKING TIMES I DIED PLAYING THAT GAME GRAGH! (I love it though.)


And as Bastardman said, SA was pretty good.

Dude, did no one mention HL and HL2?  They may not have had a lot but the music was one of the best modern music for a video game ever..... besides Halo (for the PC)  of course!
edit: Also, RE4, the BEST music for any Gamecube game ever....  That was such an awsome game

I said it in the other thread...the Kirby soundtracks are the best.

Maybe merge this with the 'Worst' thread?

Other way around. The newer thread is the one that gets merged. But they don't need to be merged.

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.

I loved it too!!! mostly because i go bonkers for a dinosaur game..the fact that B.C was canned struck a huge blow to me T_T

Jurassic park OP was great fun..but honestly it could have been done LOADS better...

I dunno..i loved many gams music..cant decide whats best..
Big Bang Theory: In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded. Into something...yeah that makes sense :/

Wow, a music topic and no one's mentioned the Katamari series?! :o Shock.

Seriously though, no videogame's music has ever really stuck to me like the Katamari games' songs. I have a number downloaded.

Other than that.. Hmm.. Well, Silent Hill has had some music I liked. But still- Katamari, hands down!

Why? The 'worst' thread is the exact opposite to this one.
