Song of Storms - The Legend of Zelda
Still Alive - Portal

I used to love Still Alive, but then this kid at school no one likes started singing it and it was horrible.

Anyways, the cake is a lie. So long.

May 4th, 2010, 11:00 PM
The Main theme for Zelda, it sounds so damn epic and makes me really heroic when I listen to it. XD

May 5th, 2010, 9:45 AM
Ah! it's back. So, everything here. (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/CrowningMusic/VideoGames)

Rush Hour, Give Me All Your Love, Lullaby for You, and all variations of Twister, from TWEWY. It's hard to decide.

May 5th, 2010, 10:11 AM
Seeing as this is a Pokemon forum, I'll my favourite Pokemon music from each generation:

Mewtwo Battle Theme - Pokemon Red/Blue
Cherrygrove City - Pokemon Gold/Silver/Crystal/HeartGold/SoulSilver
Verdanturf Town - Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald
Pokemon League (Outside building, Day) - Pokemon Diamond/Pearl/Platinum

Favourite Videogame Music of all time, huh? That's rather tricky. I'll go with:

Battle At The Big Bridge (Battle With Gilgamesh) - Final Fantasy V
Flash In The Dark (Wily Stage 1) - Megaman 9
Wily Stage 1 - Megaman 10

May 5th, 2010, 10:18 AM
Wily Stage 1 - Megaman 10

It has a title too! It's called "Abandoned Memory (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G2YL2PxUf5Q)" *shifteyes* (arranged version (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m4NKGSynzi8)).
Also add "Against the Pressure (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zuX_mmoH0ck)" (Wily Stage 2) (arranged (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gh7guI0kIqk)).

Plus I love Sammer's Kingdom (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IPjJWZgjKA0) and Castle Bleck (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BQ7DedZjb3s) from Super Paper Mario, the X-Naut base (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AsRyjGhBaQU) from Paper Mario 2 and Fawful's Castle (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I7EVeYzcHDk) from Bowser's Inside Story.

Aaaaand Ace Attorney: Cornered (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wq1jknZp0ic), Core 2001 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qMxGHvoK9XI), Middlegame (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GwD6O7kouw8) and Core 2009 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=osF8px-GVjw), Detective Gumshoe (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=igVn2DkMLR8), Let Me Laugh at the Cool (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2nNsmuTuIjc), Allegro 2004 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JKuQRJ2Zm5o), Presto 2009 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dorU0Rpmr7E) and Troupe Gramarye (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HP3FMYYb12Q), quite catchy.

I could list a million songs buuut that's all I can think of right now XD;

Oh, and the wonderful Hurry Up! - Level 1-1 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F0Yd1vd3mrI) from Wario Land 5.

May 5th, 2010, 10:27 AM
Super Metroid - Red Brinstar theme (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FyFcSHHdIQE)
When reviewer say that this game's soundtrack really creates a desolate and lonely mood, they're most likely referring to this track. This song creeped me out as a kid because it's so intense in its calming nature...if that makes sense. o_0

Super Metroid - Lower Norfair theme (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=98RdRDaOsNg)
This is just my favorite overall track in the game. You really feel as if you're entering Hell and it pumps you up for what's arguably the game's most epic boss fight waiting for you at the end of the area.

Hell, I'll just recommend playing Super Metroid, or at least listen to its entire soundtrack. XD

May 5th, 2010, 10:37 AM
Bionicle Heroes music

Any Pokemon music.

A Pixy
May 5th, 2010, 11:54 AM
Lucca's Theme (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v1YKC8cNXR8) always has been and always will be my favourite song from a game. (A Cry in Summer (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WN_XYs3TXn0)) (A Gift of Spring (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=22U5gUwGC_g)) (Epoch Remix (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IO82QVFgsIA))

But I will give Tall Grass Field/Parade (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tp3J7mmSKho) from Castle Crashers an honourable mention.

U.N. Owen was her? (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VIop055eJhU) from Touhou 6 is one of the best ever.

Altogether, though, I have to say I just love all the Phoenix Wright music.

May 6th, 2010, 3:10 AM
I'mma name a few for the cause;

Rocket Waltz for Team Fortress 2
Oblivion Opening Theme
Ain't No Rest For the Wicked for Borderlands (Does this one count?)

天空の花の都 (The Capital City of Flowers in the Sky) from Perfect Cherry Blossom. It's just... :O

May 8th, 2010, 4:30 AM
It's an anime but they have games out with the theme in them.

May 8th, 2010, 5:24 AM
I'm currently in love with Ayane's (彩音) GRAVITY ERROR. It's the opening theme for Triggerheart Exelica Enhanced.

May 27th, 2010, 1:58 PM
Tbh I love most soundtracks from videogames :D but my fave song atm:

May 28th, 2010, 2:26 PM

Munch Dog
May 28th, 2010, 3:32 PM
I have so many themes that I love from so many games, but lately, I've had the main theme from Monkey Island stuck in my head. I love it.


May 28th, 2010, 3:34 PM
The Metal Gear series has an amazing original score, same with most of the Final Famtasy games.

Super Mario world and Sonic 2/3 have some really nice tunes too, and the Call of Duty series has some epic numbers.

Um.. the only thing I can think of is that one song in Super Mario 64, in that place with the boat. That song still gets stuck in my head, and I haven't even heard it in the past 2 years.

May 29th, 2010, 3:16 AM
Halo Theme:


Castle Crashers Menu:


Castle Crashers Pirate Ship:


DC Burning, Call of Duty Modern warfare 2:


Team Fortress 2 Theme:

The Man with the Machine Gun from FFVIII and Bloody Tears from Castlevania have been stuck in my head recently, but Guilty Gear and Blazblue definitely have the best OST's of any game in general IMO. Daisuke Ishiwatari just makes beautiful masterpieces... :D

And on the topic of Pokemon music, I really like every champion theme in Pokemon from Gen.1-4. They just sound so epic and fitting for the final battle.

May 30th, 2010, 9:48 AM
I like the theme song of Luigi's Mansion. It is spooky but also silly. I like it a lot.

May 30th, 2010, 9:59 AM
LoZ's Lost Woods is still a favorite.

Or Arni Village's theme from Chrono Cross:
