Favorite Video Game Soundtracks
« on: May 14, 2018, 11:42:46 PM »
I think every board needs to have a topic like this. I've been listening a lot to the Katamari Damacy OST (always brings a smile to my face, it's so weird!) and the Castlevania: Symphony of the Night OST. The SotN soundtrack is just so amazing, it's one of those soundtracks where I hear a song and pretty much know exactly what level I'm in.

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

Pretty much any Final Fantasy soundtrack is amazing, at least up until 12.  Not a fan of 13 and newer's music, it lost it's like... individuality to me. :/ 

A soundtrack that really shocked me at how much I absolutely adore it is the Monster Hunter World soundtrack. 


Especially the last two tracks (starting at 30:21) omg I seriously fell in love with the 9th track "Michibiki no Uta."
moo.

The new God of War OST is absolutely fantastic. But some of my all time favorites are Mario Galaxy, Doom (come on, midi metal music is amazing), pretty much any Legend of Zelda OST, pretty much any Pokemon OST.

Command and Conquer for sure. Can't beat Hell March and Hell March 2 by the one and only Frank Klepacki. Found out that he actually lives here in Vegas and plays drums in local bands here and the former president of Westwood also lives here and owns an art museum haha.

Halo 2 had some solid music too. Blow Me Away by Breaking Benjamin was epic in the game.

I'm actually quite fond of the soundtracks for the games in the FFXIII series. I'm hard pressed to pick a favorite, but Sunleth Waterscape is up there.


Tales of Legendia has a great soundtrack as well. My favorite from there is Short Circuit, the theme that plays in the lightning based dungeon.


But my still favorite!! Is "Karma" by Bump of Chicken from Tales of the Abyss (aka "i'm not crying, you're crying" the song)

I don't know about soundtrack but the using Cage the Elephant's "aint no rest for the wicked" for the intro to Boarderlands was as good as anything I've seen, definitely up there with Breaking Benjamin in Halo

That counts. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 has one of the best compilation soundtracks ever. GTA comes close but THPS2 brings back so many memories.

Going pure soundtrack I think @CreepinDeth in on to something. Pro Skater 1 had some cool stuff, Goldfinger, Dead Kennedys and Primus off the top of my head, but Pro Skater 2 doing Bring the Noise and Guerilla Radio (and some other really cool stuff) really pushed it past it's predecessor. After #2 the fad died out for me, so I don't remember any of the other games.

Aside from all that we're forgetting the obvious - The earlier guitar hero / rockband games - i mean that's all they really were was a sound track and scontroller.

Good call on Tony Hawk, those were some good soundtracks.

I don't know if you can really count Rock Band/Guitar Hero haha. Kinda the whole point of those games was to draw people in and make them fun by using good music lol.

As much as I do like Castlevania and Final Fantasy soundtracks.  The Resident Evil (movie from a game) and Mortal Kombat (also movie from a game) soundtracks still stand out.

Lately I have been listening to some of the Nier: Automata soundtrack though.

Went back to a classic today. Started up some original Sonic the Hedgehog OST. It's one of my favorite soundtracks of all time.

@CreepinDeth Sonic had a great sound track.  Very rememberable … iconic.

I have to say even though it's a midi sound track, Doom 1 and 2 had VERY rememberable songs... as well as borrowing from Alice In Chains and several other groups.   I also really liked Terminal Velocity sound track.... and Descent.  Descent 2 had the 1st CD music - red book audio.

Here's terminal velocity:


Now... it's basic... but it really had the Nine Inch Nails vibe.  To this day, I Still remember this 1st and 2nd songs played well (Title and Ymir theme).  I know @Grindspine dug this game a lot too.  Pretty basic game by today's standard... but was ahead of its time back in the day. 

When Grindspine and I jammed out... we figured out a pretty cool version on guitar.  Hey Grindspine…. reminder... we need to do this again.  IT's probably been 12+ years since we played this.  I completely forgot about it.

Need for Speed Most wanted (original) had some cool stuff too.

Pro Skater 3 Had Alien Ant Farm Wish... and was my favorite game.  I think 2 had the better sound track though.

@Grindspine Check the terminal velocity music?   I Started figuring out on 7 string @ B the base riff that goes under the part we used to always play.  I Think we could get that done and done.

If the Video goes somewhere else other than the beginning... start at beginning for intro... and 2nd song IMO is the best.
