Videogame Music Thread

Post by Piratemankelly on Tue Nov 05, 2013 10:42 pm

Discuss your favorite videogame soundtracks and songs.

Obviously, real-life songs (sorry GTA / other modern sandbox games) don't count, but I guess remixed versions (as in Michael Jackson's Moonwalker) and other songs made specifically for the game (anything Crush 40 made for Sanic, etc) is okay.


Personally, and I think many can agree on this, the Zelda series has tossed out some of the best music in gaming, as well as Mario and Pokemon, with Metroid's Ridley Theme being up there as well. Of course Megaman has some of the greatest, with my own personal favorite being Spark Mandrill's theme in X.

Groovitron songs are real songs taken with permission from APM Music, so those are not fair game either, even if they are unknown. Just as a heads-up to all.

That said, DK Rap takes the cake all day err day.

Oh geez not the DK Rap...

HE'S THE LEADER OF THE BUNCH
YOU KNOW HIM WELL
HE'S FINALLY BACK
TO KICK SOME TAIL

Honestly, that should've been DK's victory theme.


One of my favorite songs in a video game EVER has to be Smiles and Tears from EarthBound. For those who know me well enough, it's not hard to see why.

I find this thread to be odd, but whatever.

Open My Heart and Endless Possibilities are, needless to say, my favorite Crush 40 themes. His World and Live and Learn are good, but overrated. However, my favorite vocal theme is easily Reach for the Stars lol. But for my favorite general theme of a Sonic game...



This theme, hands down. It's hard to believe that this is the first fully orchestrated main Sonic theme, but it's true. Lost World also some of my favorite boss themes in a platformer:

Lost World Boss Themes:







And of course plenty of kickass level themes. Here are my favorites:

Tropical Resort Zone 3:

SIlent Forest Zone 2:

Sky Road Zone 2:

Lost World's soundtrack is sexy. Enough said.

Dragon, NMH only had like one song lol. Unless you meant boss themes in which case I agree (hell, I agree anyway even if the rest of the game only had a few songs lol).

Anything from Metal Gear Rising, Bayonetta, KH, Anarchy Reigns, Mad World, etc. and this:



I heard somebody listening to this with their Beats (Those things have a LOT of external noise) and we both started singing it. My friends and teacher thought I was nuts. lol

But, basically, anything Platinum makes has some of the best music I've heard in games.

So do I. I may or may not have downloaded every boss theme in MGR...just a bit. Platinum always loved soundtrack even as Clover. Okamis soundtrack is sooo good....doesn't line up with their later rock stuff given it's traditional Japanese music but still.

You mentioning traditional Japanese stuff reminds me of Samurai Warriors (and therefore, Dynasty Warriors).

I always liked the music in those games.
