    Default Video game music

    Any one else here a fan of video game music? I couldn't find a thread about it, so I'm calling out any other nerds who are into this stuff to share your favorite songs, OSTs, composers, and such and such. Or maybe you want to recommend some vgm you think is overlooked or is so bad it's worth a listen. It is a pretty broad area of music once you really get into it. I'd love to hear any songs you guys like, as I'm always trying to find new stuff to add to my library. Or you could just post catchy JRPG battle themes, that's always good too. I like listening to new songs I'm unfamiliar with as it has introduced me to many great games in the past.

    I guess it would be proper to share excellent video game tunes in the opening post. I'll stick them in spoiler tags to keep it less cluttered.



    Into the Wilderness (Wild Arms) - A really good and epic western tune with whistling in it.
    Spoiler:


    dreamenddischarger (Umineko no naku koro ni) - This comes from a a visual novel I believe, but those get included into the whole vgm category. It's an awesome 9-minute trance/techno song that does all sorts of interesting things, ranging from beepy sounds to a catchy as heck violin to Arabic style.
    Spoiler:


    Home Theme (Beyond Good & Evil) - Prolly my favorite video game song ever. It's a beautiful ethereal piece with lovely piano playing. Very relaxing with a touch of exotic sounds.
    Spoiler:


    Sky Tower (Pokemon Mystery Dungeon) - It's one of those songs you just simply can't get enough of. It often gets overshadowed by the music from the main series, which is a shame.
    Spoiler:


    Piercing the Sky (VVVVVV) - One of the songs from the second version of the game. It's pure electronic goodness, and one of the catchiest things I've ever listened to.

    Is there anyway we can have this topic without embedding so many youtube videos? Links should be fine but all this Youtube is making my computer go south for the winter.

    Anything by Robert Beanland and Grant Kirkhope during Rareware's hay-day is bound to be superb.

    I love that game so much, and 85% percent is for the music alone.

    Gotta go with one of the best though: The first Dr. Wily stage in Megaman 2

    And obviously this, though it's really a theme: the opening song for MGS3

    Yuss, that's easily one of the greatest songs ever. Megaman music in general is pretty sick. This particular song was put into the Megaman performance at Video Games Live! along with the opening themes from MM2 and MM3.

    I'm going with something a bit more obscure. Well, okay, it's not obscure at all, but it's something that people will think about when they think of Zelda.

    Well, I suppose I'll start by linking my posts from the thread in the video game subforum:

    But that's just the music, so here I'll actually say some stuff.

    If you are a fan of epic orchestral style music, I would totally recommend the Front Mission OSTs. Especially FM4 and 5.

    I am also a big fan of Jun Senoue, so I really like most of the Sonic the Hedgehog OSTs.

    The Halo OSTs are also good for the epic orchestral feeling.

    Pokemon music. 'Nuff said.

    Shadow of the Colossus OST. Really, really good stuff. Especially in the way it supplemented the atmosphere of the game.

    now this is my kind of thread. i always make a name for myself at anime north's guess that tune competition.

    anyways, i got one word for this thread. megaman.


    ok, I'll actually post some stuff though.

    good idea with the x series. these 2 always catch my ear.

    acid sea force

    i think x3 is my least favorite for music, but i just love these tracks. i always have them on my mp3 player.

    as for non megaman, i'm not a big parasite eve player, but the intro for the first game both just awesome and beautiful.


    and i know it's final fantasy, but this great song from FF6 is always overlooked.
