Favorite game music
« on: July 03, 2013, 12:31:38 pm »
I love game music and scores some are so beautiful and emotional, some are wonderful at conveying feelings, what are your faviroutes? Also i found this just now, the girls singing voice at 45 seconds is perfectly in tune and is very nice http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/510975 i hope you think so too  :)

My fave scores are, skyrim, farcry 3, all the halo'sand a few others i will add when i remember them.

Bit random and not very hip, but i find many of this type of music very soothing and calming. I do love all music though  :)

My personal favourite game soundtrack is the one from Chrono Cross - the actual game is decent despite some flaws, but it had some amazing music in it.

A lot of the Final Fantasy games have pretty good music, too; I particularly liked some of the stuff from FFX.  Also, might be kind of an unusual answer, but for some reason, the game "Wet" comes to mind... the actual game was pretty mediocre, but I liked a lot of the music they used in it.  There's probably a few I'm forgetting, if there is, I'll throw them in to this thread.

I like red alerts' hell march ( especially hell march 2) and the original C&C ( tiberian  dawn I think) has a great sound track

I'm not sure but I think homeworld 2 has a good one also

One of my fave games just cause 2 has some good music ( *crunched out is best I think) *also known as mile high club

Oh wow. There's a question. I'll just link a bunch of my favorites.

Ecco 2: The Tides of Time - Tube of Medusa
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kk72RMv9d0s
It's fun, fast, and I think the simplicity of it is why it works so well. It sounds very..Genesis, but that's one of the reasons I like it :)

Radiant Historia - Blue Radiance
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WNORnKsigdQ
Radiant Historia isn't a game very many people played because not only was it an Atlus game, it came out for the DS in 2011..after the 3DS had already come out. Composed by Yoko Shimomura, you can definitely hear some hints of Kingdom Hearts in there ;)

The Binding of Isaac - My Innermost Apocalypse
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WuLLLwGQNWI
The Binding of Isaac is an incredibly difficult game. You oftentimes win by sheer virtue of having a crazy amount of damage output and nothing else, meaning the fight with the final boss won't be very long. If you happen to make it to him and still have to dodge a bunch to win, you'll be able to hear more than about a minute or it. Get that far in and you're in for a treat!

The World Ends with You - Calling
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i0569Wt-cZ0
The World Ends with You has a unique soundtrack in that a majority of it has vocals. This is overworld music. Really pulls you into the world if..Shibuya, Japan :P

Chrono Trigger - 600 AD
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RqZaFDA7PXY
It's Chrono Trigger.

Chrono Cross - Time's Scar
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J46RY4PU8a8
It's Chrono Cross.

Journey - The Entire OST
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M3hFN8UrBPw
Not only was Journey's soundtrack simply beautiful, but the only way of communication between you and your partner was various musical note-sounding blips that were always in sync with the music no matter when you pressed the "shout" button.

Final Fantasy VI - Aria di Mezzo Carattere
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oi0yL_KvW7g
Need I say more?

Final Fantasy X - To Zanarkand
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dmzZrj-cLSc
Really ;)?

The ones that really stand out for me are the Legend of Zelda game scores. I have all of Zelda Reorchestrated's work, and all the Koji Kondo I can get my hands on.

Big Blue is just awsome, Bubble Bobble and Kirby music is happy and fun. The others are just beautiful and inspire deeper thoughts.

The Sonic the Hedgehog series had a lot of great soundtracks.  A lot of times when I need to stay up later while doing homework, I'll put on a half-hour endless loop of some fast-paced Sonic the Hedgehog song. 

For example:

No the best video game is the Mass Effect soundtrack!!! Almost all the songs (especially the slower ones) are great!

How do you paly video games?  For that matter, how do you paly anything!?  :D

So, if you're so educated in this matter, tell me, what have i been missing, hmm?


I actually play Skyrim with the music off... gives it a rather creepy tone when you're in caves and whatnot...

I played through um... what's it called... the place where you have to get the horn of Jergen Windcaller, at night, on minimum brightness, TV adjusted to low contrast, brightness, and low color (Looks dreary and... just kinda... bad...) on max difficulty with ceiling fan going, doors open (It was winter so it was friggin cold, plus my room is basically a one room cabin [with no insulation] in the back yard, making it even colder and windier.) And i went in with nothing but a set of nonupgraded fur armor, a pickaxe and a few torches, no magic, and only whirlwind sprint for shouts. Volume up high too, on a big TV. 

I was no longer playing Skyrim, i was IN Skyrim.

Yeeeeah... i like to make video games as an immersive experience as possible...  and some people say i take it too far. (Every person i've ever told, actually...)

In all reality, i try to play in as close to those conditions as i can, but the opportunities are rather few and far between... saddly

SSX3's soundtrack. Most of the songs in that are on my MP3 player, I have a dedicated playlist X3 It's just... Amazing. Makes you feel like amazing! ^.^

Favorite track in the game? "Rockstar" N.E.R.D. (Remix)
Artist by trade, Soldier by choice.

475 consecutive last stands. Funny how that happens, huh?

The book is one of the most well wrote books i have read, Read it on your own in the ak, Dmitry Glukhovsky is really able to get your heart pumping, he builds up the tension very well. The game was good, but it didn't do the book justice.
