Best videogame music of all time?

Post by Reverend Shrapnel » Tue Dec 11, 2001 8:06 am

It HAS to be Sonic The Hedgehog 3/and Knuckles. Seriously, go to www.audiogalaxy.com and download Hydrocity Zone and Flying Battery Zone. KICK AXEEEE!!!

Ahem.

Anyhow, what thinkest thou?

Greenhill zone: sonic 1
Village tune: Wonder boy in Monster World
Biobase tune: Wonder boy in Monster World
Level 6: Thunderforce IV
Waterfall tune: Super Castlevania IV
Wandering ghost: Castlevania symphony of the night
Tragic prince: Castlevania symphony of the night
My favorite game music albums

-Secret of Mana+
-Ecco music of time

Shraps, I am with you 110%. The two games together form the greatest platform game ever created...probably the best game ever period. Even now, the music from the Hydrocity Zone (and the insane speed of the thing) are STILL stuck in my head. Best zone overall, in my opinion, was the final Death Egg Zone, which was pretty damn creative for its time.

With the walking on the ceiling and stuff? Yeah, pretty neat. Although I've been playing a lot of the original lately and Star Light Zone is pretty cool in a minimalistic kinda way...I love Sonic! Image

The complete Soundtrack of Crusader: No Remorse. I'd kill to get that as MP3....
I'd kill to be able to play it again, too Image

Also good:

* Theme from Zelda
* Red Alert Theme
* Bubble Bobble C64. Catchy tune.
* Perfect Dark 'End credit' and "Air Base X"
* Dungeon Keeper Intro

I'll add more if I think of any

Edit:
Warcraft Intro
Warcraft Humans

I'm with you on that one, that music is great.

But I'd say that my favourite game music is from Street Fighter II, particularly Ken, Ryu and Guile's stages.

strafefox64, you seem to know about this sort of thing - I love the music from the first Secret of Mana game, I know they sell the soundtrack on various anime sites but will it be the music from the US version of the game? I'm not sure if the Japanese version had the same soundtrack...

I'm quite big on just about everything from Final Fantasy VII, but honorable mention goes to the final level from Sonic Spinball. Ooh, and Jaki Crush for the Super Famicom.

For me it has to be Final Fantasy!! All the battle music, most of the dungeon/world map music, etc etc... Image

Plus the fact of Rob Zombie tunes on Twisted Metal 3 Image

Yes, Seiken Densetsu 2 (japanese mana) and secret of mana share the same soundtrack.

btw: the mana+ album is a remixed album, It's kinda hard to recognize secret of mana in it, but I still like, great music.

Some of the most mystical tunes in a game I can recall are from Donkey Kong (the first one) for the SNES (Famicom) - particularly the first snow level music - where as the weather got worse - turned from light snow to a HUGE blizzard - the music got more scarier and moodier as well !!!! Totally cool.

Also, the music from Apiya on the Amiga was so cool it was released as a soundtrack CD!!!!

Nods go to Sephiroth's Theme and the Shinra Corp. Theme from Final Fantasy 7(?).

Legend of Zelda Underworld Theme, and most of the Mega Man 2 robot masters themes.

I dont really listen to the music of the games. I normally turn up my stereo to Linkin Park or New Found Glory. Depending on my mood, and the game

Wow, you and me are on the same wavelength, Quickswitch. Any FF7 music just rules, and back in the day when I was a kid I remember making up lyrics to Mega Man 2 levels. I think the entire Mega Man series had some damn good music.

I personally like the music from the Tony Hawk and Twisted Metal games. The Turks theme from FF VII was good too. Also Death By Stereo from Starfighter was good.
