    Great Video Game Music

    Lets share some kickass video game music!
    I'm talking specific tracks from games...PLEASE INCLUDE A YOUTUBE EMBEDDED VIDEO...so we can enjoy the music.

    For the sake of honoring the forum itself, the first couple of tracks I present will be from a wrestling game.
    Its from the shitty Gamecube title WrestleMania X-8...but MAN is this some solid music!

    Check it out:

    No.

    I'll add...a lot of VNs have great music.

    Katawa and Clannad are firsts to come to mind.

    David Wise's Donkey Kong Country soundtracks are masterpieces.





    Considering the hardware limitations at the time, he did some incredible shit. Amazing tunes in all three games, top to bottom.

    Fuck yes, Silk. Was just about to say this thread begins and ends with "Aquatic Ambiance" from DKC.

    Could have posted that one but didn't wanna lean too heavy on the water themes.

    Aquatic Ambiance is certainly one of, if not the best.

    My nephew has been introduced to Donkey Kong Country recently, he's 4 and he dances along to the intro music.

    Kid's got good taste.

    I'm gonna try to stick with my theme of more obscure, or lesser known, great music from bizarre games.

    Mass Effect 3



    This was just pretty magical. Pretty spectacular and serene moment too. Mass Effect Trilogy had really great OSTs.

    Halo



    Bruh bruh. Nuff said.

    Witcher 3 - Sword of Destiny



    There's a reason this is my efed theme song.

    But yeah, Halo has a fantastic soundtrack, and I never even really got into the games. Sitting in the menu and just listening to the music was better imo.

    Last of Us main theme is amazing and sets the tone for the game perfect. I get chills every time I hear it.



    Also, Hotline Miami has such an orgasmic 80's style soundtrack.

    Oh...

    did somebody say 'mass effect?'



    gotta go with the best track from the entire series, "uncharted worlds"

    nothing sets the tone for space exploration quite the way this track does

    it is calm, interesting, and majestic.... which is a good description of the majority of the time i spent with ME

    there's also this version that lasts an hour which is fantastic

    One of my cousins actually plays as part of the orchestra that the Halo games use.

    Always enjoyed it for a special reason there myself.


    I'll share some more later, I've got a few titles I am thinking of. Also, some VNs.

    Re: Great Video Game Music

    Sometimes I think we forget or take advantage of just how great some classic game's music is. We all know Sonic 2 has a great soundtrack...but really listen as an adult, and jam it! This is some of the best music from the 16-bit generation!

    Killer Instinct was the greatest video game theme song ever.



    The only reason I don't say Mortal Kombat is because it was for the movie, not the game.
