View Full Version : Best Video Game music

February 22nd, 2010, 9:28 AM
As the name says post what you think is the the best Video Game music.

February 22nd, 2010, 9:54 AM
I fap to... well, okay, I don't. But this here (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/CrowningMusic/VideoGames) is still pretty catchy. Like all of it. Among my favorites are Brawl's remix of Butter Building from Kirby, and Still Alive from Portal. *looks at sig*

It's a wonderful day when just posting a link to TvTropes is actually relevant to the conversation.

Metroid, Halo, and Resident Evil.

I like the Metroid series music the best, however.

February 22nd, 2010, 10:06 AM
I was kind of stupid not putting in my favourite in.
Shadow of the colossus soundtrack is epic in every way
I also like all of the MGS soundtrack

February 22nd, 2010, 10:40 AM
Jet Set Radio had the best soundtrack ever.

February 22nd, 2010, 11:12 AM
Sonic the Hedgehog games have amazing music - Sonic Adventure especially. The Pokemon Mystery Dungeon games also have beautiful music.

February 22nd, 2010, 11:54 AM
I have to go with the Metal Gear series as well with the Ace Combat series.

Here are the links to favourite vg music
Shadow of the colossus: The opened way

Shadow of the colossus: Dimise of the ritual

Heres a underated one from PMD

Impossible to pick one single track, but some of my favorite OSTs are:

Chrono Cross
Lufia II
Dark Cloud 2/Dark Chronicle
Silent Hill 2
Megaman 3 & 7

Halo, Sonic, Mario, Pokemon, Runescape, but the best of all time is La Tale's music.

February 22nd, 2010, 1:01 PM
zelda's lullaby from ocarina of time
pokemon D/P rival music

February 22nd, 2010, 2:35 PM
I can never decide between Bloody Tears (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EjazC45Qkww) from the Castlevania series or Song of Storms (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qgHulaIG1H0) from Ocarina of Time

February 22nd, 2010, 2:56 PM
I like the music in Endless Ocean. It is very dreamy and lovely.

that's currently my favorite video game music, I friggin love Miles Edgeworth!

I love all the Ace Attorney series music as well. Final Fantasy VI and Chrono Trigger also have excellent music. I'm also a big fan of kirby music.

February 22nd, 2010, 3:25 PM
Touhou Project music huge with arranges/remixes, so I decided to hop on that bandwagon.

February 22nd, 2010, 3:28 PM
As far as I'm concerned, nothing will ever beat the epic ambiance of Super Metroid's Lower Norfair BGM (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=98RdRDaOsNg)

February 22nd, 2010, 3:51 PM
Well, straight away I know the three best. But I don't have one favourite.

Breath of Fire IV - Emperor Rampant
Final Fantasy VIII - The Man With The Machine Gun (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cn6dNrJxnYA&feature=related)
Final Fantasy IX - Feel My Blade (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6i4A326WVP0)

CARRIER HIT, GET BACK TO THE FLEET (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9SRUmNlN4sU&fmt=18)
Safe Passage by Tommy Tallarico, theme of the rolling demo and Cape Horn level of the PS1 game Treasures of the Deep.

Infinite Loop from MGS4 is probably my favorite music from any video game because it was such an awesome background music. It also helps me play more effeciently whenever I play fps games.

February 22nd, 2010, 7:38 PM
Kirby's music is very well done (significantly Gourmet Race). Banjo-Kazooie's music is very catchy to listen to, especially Gruntilda's theme.

February 22nd, 2010, 8:07 PM
Super Mario Galaxy!

Best music I've ever heard in a video game.

February 22nd, 2010, 8:40 PM
I really like the music from F-Zero GX. You can pick any song from that game and it'll be awesome. It fits the game so well and really gets you in the high-paced, F-zero-esque mood.

February 22nd, 2010, 10:14 PM
Some of my favorites are:

Most of the music in Legend of Zelda: OoT

Any music from the Super Mario games

Banjo-Kazooie definitely was catchy, I agree with that

Megaman 2

Some Bomberman 64 music was good too

That's all I can remember right now.

A lot of the Mario Kart DS music was brilliant, as is the MapleStory music.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney has to take the cake with it's Pursuit: Cornered! theme, however. It's just...the best. Trials and Tribulations' is even better.

February 23rd, 2010, 1:23 AM
Jet Set Radio Future has the BEST soundtrack ever.

February 23rd, 2010, 4:55 AM
It's fun that I found out this thread while listening to Dr. Cossack's Fortress (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i8DRjiWQuLc).

There are a million songs I love out there, but, to sum it up, the Mario RPG's, the Ace Attorney series and the Megaman series are specially awesome. Add anything by Yoko Shimomura or Koji Kondo. Plus a thousand more games that would take me hours to list.

February 23rd, 2010, 5:22 PM
Geez, I can't just pick one song or even one soundtrack. That's impossible.

- Anything from The Legend of Zelda. I even bought the soundtrack for Wind Waker. Koji Kondo is just amazing in general.
- The Gusty Garden Galaxy music from Super Mario Galaxy. Such a beautiful piece and so epic.
- Tunes from the Ace Attorney series. Love them.
- For whatever reason, I'm fond of the Brawl version of Gourmet Race. It's been stuck in my head for a while.
- These retro-inspired tunes from this freeware game called Cave Story. Very catchy.
- These really atmospheric tunes from another freeware game called Knytt Stories.

And I could list music frm games for ages. Honorable mentions include music from the Shadow of the Colossus, Bloody Tears from Castlevania, and... I should stop.

Champion Red Battle Theme. ♥

The Ace Attorney Series and the Tales of Series both have very well done music. I can't really say too much for any other Video Game music, but those are definitely my favorites.

February 23rd, 2010, 7:34 PM
I have to say, I'm staying with the Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask OSTs which I happen to own. For Nintendo 64 games, both of them had beautiful music <3

I like the music from Wind Waker, too. And from Link's Awakening and I guess any other LoZ GBC game (ah, nostalgia XD).

Also, the music from the Dept. Heaven series never fails to be beautiful. And the Touhou music can't be forgotten, either, especially when you consider that only one guy composes all of it.

February 23rd, 2010, 10:52 PM
Best music? I guess I'll have to split this up a bit.

Best intense orchestral music? Mechwarrior 2 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nVDLVqHqqfw), definatly...
Best "touching: music? Pokemon Mystery Dungeon 2 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dxPrJaf3aWQ&feature=related)...
Best contemporary? Marathon Eternal X (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2AswP6jkQ18&feature=channel)... (Although the rock theme (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x05wKCGhmmk) is pretty awesome too.)
Best music overall? Super Smash Bros. Brawl (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eyoR-Pg6o0c)

My favourite game music ever has GOT to be One Winged Angle from FFVII, it is just plain, unadulterated awesomesauce.
Behind that it's Pokémon GSC (Champion/Red battle to be precise) and pretty much all of the LoZ series.
