Favorite Vidya Music
 
Being this is a nerdy Star Wars forum, I'm sure you all can play the Star Wars theme song in your head without even having to think about it. Well I'm also sure that you all have played some vidya (video games) that has had some awesome music that you simply cannot forget. If you haven't then that can only mean you need to play more, better vidya. So let's post some of our favorite vidya music... I'll kick it off with some Golden Sun Battle Theme.

Edit: side note, if you have never played Golden Sun... for shame

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night for PSone has some of the best videogame music ever IMO. It helps that it's one of my favorite games of all time. But it has a very varied soundtrack, it's great. You can find a youtube playlist here but I'll link to some of my favorite individual tracks.

Show spoiler


The other videogame music that comes to mind first is from Mirror's Edge. The theme "Still Alive" by Lisa Miskovsky is awesome and so is the ambient soundtrack used throughout the game.

Tetris... that theme song... it's in my brain... telling me things... IT WON'T SHUT UP!!! GET IT OUT!!! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAaaaaaaa it makes me stack things. HORRIBLE blocks. THEY COME FOR MEEEEEE!

I'm better now...

The original Quake had some really good music too.

Funny thing is back when I used to play Sonic the Hedgehog, I would mute the sound and play Ministry. Seemed to work better for me than the original music. A lot of games work better for me when I'm using my own soundtrack.

KotOR's obviously were different. Those were good. I actually liked II's soundtrack better in some spots.

*brevity*

DUDE, I think I like you. Yes, I totally agree VGM is kick ass and you probably will not find a bigger ally here than myself for agreement with you in this matter. You are totally epic win to bring this up. I just didn't think most people gave enough of a crap to listen to VG music. Go ahead and chat with me any time you want about VG music. You kick ass, Maverick.

I do SO look forward to the continuation of this thread--hope it gets stickified.

Just a question though: was this inspired by some of my choices in the "what are you listening to" thread? :roleyess:

I like just about every megaman track ever made that I have ever heard. Go ahead, pick one from the original or the X series--I'll guess exactly which one it is. I"m *that* nerdy about it.
Example:I'm torn on megaman X3 stage music Gravity Beetle

SNES version:

@ Darth Moeller: You are not the only one: The CV series is known for its LOOOOONG history of memorable VG tracks. Look up "Bloody Tears", you'll find CV2 for the NES and the X68000 systems were the originals. That track still kicks to this day. Just a few of the many CV tracks I love:

@ Thread

Go to the music section of www.protoman.com and download some great stuff. I love this site. It was originally founded on making TOTALLY EPIC WIN AWESOME megaman VG tracks available. However, ironically, Capcom shut that part of it down. But there is still a ton of tracks.

Also, you can go to vixy.net and rip soundtracks/videos from youtube in various formats. Not sure if vixy works anywhere else, though.

If I remember correctly, gh.ffshrine.org has a bunch, but I ain't been there in awhile.

@ Tommycat: yeah, I know what you mean. Stuck, but if it's good, why would you want it to leave? ;)

I also like Filth's rendition of Ozzy's original "Mr Crowley" and Iron Maiden's "Hallowed Be Thy Name".

Hidden track perhaps? :confused: They do that sometimes.

Mav 04-16-2009 02:09 AM

Time to pump more music into this thread.

I'll start off with some of my favorite tracks from Kingdom Hearts.

Next up the Intro for Final Fantasy Tactics... amazing game
Show spoiler

And the Intro to No More Heroes...

Lastly the Valkyria Chronicles Intro, this game has a fantastic OST, sadly I can't find much of it on YouTube with out the game scenes themselves being in there. I've said it before also, but if you own a PS3, you must own this game, period.

I guess that's all... for now.

after having played through Vampire: Bloodlines, I'd say that one has some of the best music in it. Genitorturers song that wouldn't pass the PG 13 rating... as if any of their songs do haha...

Darth Avlectus 04-19-2009 02:52 AM

OK. I have something for those who are fond of the 8 bit era. You'll wish it was in your video games, or at the very least get a good laugh. As will metal-heads you out there on LF. XD

Heh--I have that one on my iPod, believe it or not, but I don't play it with the kids around. It's one of those songs I play when I need to stay awake on a long drive.

My sister and I are going to a Lacuna Coil concert in Chicago next month--hopefully they'll play 'Swamped'. I'd love to see how well they do that live.

Not my favorite Final Fantasy game, but definitely my favorite Chocobo theme. :3

Some more blue bomber. In the classic series. Though this number of title made it apparent this was going to be a rehash series...well, I'd say at least what it has going fo ir is the music tracks...

Beavis and Butt-Head SNES various tracks hospital level

I actually was bored enough hella days ago to try to play these on my electric bass. I actually was able to do almost all of these back then more or less. Except the boss theme-- I just wasn't fast enough. Since I wasn't the best (and no doubt major time suckage NOW that I ain't played it in, what 8, 9 years) I was a bit rough or sloppy on most all of them. But I have to admit it was fun when I did them. *looks at my old axe* Damn how times change.

Since we're all familiar w/ Quiet Riot's version of "Cum On Feel The Noize". What you all may not be familiar with is the original. Also Oasis did their own version of it.

It is of brit-rock origin. Slade: 1972, obviously 70's era rock sounding. If you like the contemporary brit rock revival of 60's-70's rock, Oasis would do nicely for ya. Of course anyone familiar with hair bands of the 80's (or at least played GTA:Vice City V-Rock staiton) knows of the Quiet Riot version.

I know another MM track, and to top it off the cover looks just wrong. Capcom? What the hell were you thinking?!

A rip of this is actually booming with bass and full stereo surround if the track was recorded correctly. YT is down for right now and I can't get anything else so I'll add more in a bit when it is back up.

it's epic depressive nature was best expressed in the titular movie, which I hold to be one of the finest movies I've ever watched.

QFE.

Why the hell is it always used to represent some climactic battle or something stupid like that?

Anyway, most of my favourites (Monkey Island 3, Age of Empires II, The Republic Commando theme, Max Payne 2) Have already been mentioned, so i'll just post some of the ones I can remember.

Most of the music in Sid Meier's Pirates! is awesome, but these two are, probably unsurprisingly, my favourites.

Show spoiler


The game might not have been that great, but a lot of the music for Desperados 2 was good -

Show spoiler


And I quite liked the main theme to Rainbow Six: Rogue Spear.
