Wut's your favorite of all time? Me personally would be between Legend of Zelda: Ocrarina of Time OST and Final Fantasy 7 OST

10-15-2006, 11:03 AM
As a whole I'm going to have to say. Hyrule Symphony from Legend of Zelda. And if that's not acceptable then I'll say Arcanum of steamworks and magick obscura.

But that's just what's my favourite right now, I'm probably going to have a new favourite 10 mins from now.

Too many to list...

10-16-2006, 08:33 PM
As a whole? :/

Probably Shadow of the Colossus.

10-16-2006, 09:14 PM
i like that one 2...

10-17-2006, 02:45 AM
It's hard to put them in order, but here's some:

* Donkey Kong Country: Not as good as its follower, but has still many memorable songs, including the great Aquatic Ambiance.

* Donkey Kong Country 2: The music in this classic impressed me very much when I played it the first time about ten years ago. The masterful melodies really gave the most power to its atmosphere, which was slightly darker than in the original DKC.

* Final Fantasy VI: I gotta admit that Nobuo was at his best when he composed FF VI's music. IMO VI's soundtrack beats even the OSTs of PS1's Fantasies (VII, VIII, IX) as a whole.

* Final Fantasy X: FF X's OST is very different from any other FF's soundtrack, you can really hear that this time Nobuo had some help, but I don't think that's a bad thing. The songs are more concentrated on describing the uniqueness of each area in the game, and there's this great touch of ambient in some of them.

* Silent Hill 2-3: The OST of the original Silent Hill was great, but when composing the music to these two sequels Akira Yamaoka did something better. The industrial/rock/piano mixture works wonderfully and makes SH soundtracks so distinctive that no one can say there's anything like it elsewhere.

10-17-2006, 06:24 PM
Ys ~The Oath in Felghana~ Original Soundtrack

10-20-2006, 12:46 AM

Well I should say my fav soundtrck is passion, coz its relaxing . . .

10-20-2006, 06:03 AM
I'd probably say FFIX, but I still love FFVII and some of the other Final Fantasy soundtracks.

There are a lot favourites, but I guess:

Legacy of Kain OST (whole series)
Silent Hill 2
Metal Gear Solid
Hitman 3: Contracts

10-22-2006, 04:29 AM
For my it's Chrono Cross OST, beautiful.

10-22-2006, 09:17 AM
As of right now: Ōkami ([Only registered and activated users can see links]), Shadow of the Colossus ([Only registered and activated users can see links]), and Final Fantasy XII ([Only registered and activated users can see links]). All three are wonderful soundtracks.

10-22-2006, 10:17 AM

Yeah,yeah but realy you can't leave out One Winged Angel or the entire Final Fantasy VII soundtrack

10-22-2006, 06:52 PM
long time since I've been here. well I'd say:
Donkey Kong Country 2 for reasons already stated
Shadow of the Colossus for just the orchestrated music that has brought many a tear to my eye.
Jade Empire for it's masterful use of orchestrated music alongside traditional Chinese instruments.
Kameo: Elements of Power for it's great orchestrated pieces that remind many of The Lord of the Rings films music.

Best ever, in my opinion:


Favorites, by system:

NES: Castlevania III
SNES: Castlevania IV
N64: Turok 2
Gamecube: Super Smash Brothers Melee
Gameboy: Zelda: Link's Awakening
Gameboy Advance: Castlevania: Circle of the Moon
Nintendo DS: Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow
Playstation: Symphony of the Night
Playstation 2: Star Ocean 3
Genesis: Streets of Rage II
Saturn: Shining the Holy Ark
Dreamcast: Sonic Adventure
NEO GEO: King of Fighters '95
Arcade: Street Fighter II (series)
FM Towns: Eiyuu Shigan
PC Engine: Dracula X, Ys IV (tie)
X68000: Snatcher
PC88/98: Zan
Turbografx: Ys I & II
PC: Ys VII - The Oath in Felghana (basically Ys III arrange versions)


This is a tie between Castlevania and Ys. Both have so much incredible music that it's too difficult to pick a victor.

10-23-2006, 10:51 AM
Maple Story

10-23-2006, 10:57 AM
Extremely hard to call.

I'd put it at Demolision Derby 2, (PSone) Sonic Advance 2 (GBA ofcourse) or Crashday. (PC)

If the question was about hybrid soundtracks, Sonic Advance 1, 2 and 3 mixed with some Golden Axe 3 and the no-nonsense metal of Demolision Derby 2.

10-23-2006, 12:19 PM
Too many to list...

10-24-2006, 04:43 AM
I've always been quite fond of the Final Fantasy Tactics soundtrack. Sakimoto never gets enough respect, always overshadowed by Uematsu.

Also atop that favorite list:
+Chrono Trigger
+Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
+Guilty Gear X/X2

10-25-2006, 12:11 PM
Anything Guilty Gear...

Isuka and Judgment mostly

10-25-2006, 08:39 PM
Super Hydlide!! (aka Hydlide 3 on GH) It's a genesis remake of a crappy NES rpg, made slightly more palatable. But the music is AWESOME. I'll also throw a vote in for Link's Awakening (Tal Tal Heights, baby!). I also enjoy Diablo 1, F-Zero, and Doom 1&2.

11-02-2006, 09:06 PM
Mine would have to be the brillaint Metal Gear Solid Series..Fantasic stuff and Silent Hill too....brilliantly written music. :)

11-04-2006, 06:47 PM
I usually tend towards the obscure... I can't necessarily think of a best, but here are some of my favorites (and composer if I know it):

Legend of Mana (Yoko Shimomura)
Napple Tail ~ Arsia in Daydream (Yoko Kanno)
Puppet Princess of Marl's Kingdom (Tenpei Sato)
Katamari Damacy
Dark Chronicle Premium Arrange (Tomohito Nishiura + others)
Uncharted Waters I+II (Yoko Kanno)
Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
Rule of Rose
Dragon Quest VIII (Koichi Sugiyama)
Silent Hill 4 (Akira Yamaoka)

And of course music games have to have good music. Ones I like are:

Gitaroo Man
Space Channel 5 [not part II!]
Parappa the Rapper
Um Jammer Lammy
Certain Bemani songs, but we won't get that specific... ><

And random individual songs I like:

Kaze no Klonoa - "Sad Forest Drum" (Kanako Kakino)
Tail Concerto - "For Little Tail" (KOKIA)
Kingdom Hearts ~ Final Mix - "Another Side" (Yoko Shimomura)
Kingdom Hearts II - "Sinister Sundown" (Yoko Shimomura)
Panzer Dragoon Orta - "Anu Orta Veniya" (Eri Itoh)
Bumpy Trot - "I Cry" (Nadia Gifford)
Apocripha/0 - "Chikai no Esuperosu" (Eri Kawai)
Chrono Cross - "Scars of Time"
Sonic Adventure 2 - "Fly in the Freedom"

And bunches more... But I'll stop now before this post goes on forever...

11-12-2006, 02:57 AM
Halo 1 & 2 (vol.1&2)
Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time
Ninety Nine Nights
And of course, Techmo Super Bowl, such catchy tunes!

11-12-2006, 06:54 AM
The ICO soundtrack is so beautiful, just like the game. I also love Xenosaga Episode II's soundtrack and Silent Hill 3


11-12-2006, 08:43 AM
Out of the ones I've heard, Xenosaga Episode I is far and away the best.

11-12-2006, 12:22 PM
Some of my personal favorites....

Super Mario World
Yoshi's Island
Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door
Donkey Kong Country 1 and 2
Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
Any of the Katamari Damacies

11-12-2006, 01:57 PM
I would have to say Ys Book I and II for the Turbografx-16 / Turbo Duo. That's what made the game so good. Even though the game is simple to beat (I've beaten it over 10 times, and I still play it) and the game is simple to master. You pretty much master the game as you play it anyways.

11-16-2006, 06:45 AM
Hi, everyone

I think that say a certain soundtrack is better than other.. remember that game music was separated by time.. example.. the NES has a real good videogame soundtrack with Sunsoft's Batman and Compile's Guadian Legends in the 8 bit era.. like the SMS with Compile's Golvellius and the same apply with Genesis with Sunsoft's Batman and Yuzo Koshiro's Street of Rage... the SNES with Konami's Super Castlevania 4 in the 16 bit era... don't forget the introduction of the cd ad-on with PC Engine... games like Lords of Thunder are trully awesome... my opinion.. separate the soundtracks list by bits (8 bits consoles.... 16 bits consoles.... 16 bits consoles with cd ad-on.... 32 bits consoles.. and so on)

In my case this examples of videogames that mentioned above.. i really enjoyed now in this time... but listening in its original states.. not remixes.... its bring me back memories of what really a game is... a piece of wonderful work made with inventive and creative with one focus.... MAKE FUN TO PLAY!

11-16-2006, 01:49 PM
Gears of War

Nuff said

You're quite right, which is what makes it so hard to choose. I love hearing the fun 8 bit music in games while playing the games, but I could never listen to those songs casually (save for Mystic Mysidia from ff4, but that's because that song is made of pure and untainted win). I guess when I say "best", I mean "what I can make a playlist out of and listen to while drawing, reading, etc".

I enjoyed American McGee's Alice- nice level of creepiness and all that.
But my favorite of all time would be LoZ:OoT. All the songs are wonderfully composed, but I especially love the Hyrule Symphony release.
Of course, the songs from Majora's Mask and Wind Waker were really good too...

No mentions of FFVI at all? What a shame. First game soundtrack i loved so much i had to buy, and probably still just about my favorite ever.

12-12-2006, 02:37 PM
I'd have to say Star Ocean III or ANUBIS Zone of the Enders OST.

12-13-2006, 01:33 AM

Metroid Prime - Wrecked Ship in particular.


Baten Kaitos - EWatLO

12-13-2006, 08:41 PM
F-ZERO X !!!!!!!!!!

12-13-2006, 11:55 PM
Both Halo soundtracks. Even though Halo 2 sucked.

Why isn't there any mention of Gears of War? Wonderful score. And..I'd just like to point out..Final Fantasy VII = SERIOUSLY OVERRATED. Compared to most of todays games..its music seems bland and generic. Even back then I still considered it bland and generic. The only saving grace was Aeris' theme. And ..well Sephiroth's theme. Everything else was pure shit.

12-13-2006, 11:58 PM
No mentions of FFVI at all? What a shame. First game soundtrack i loved so much i had to buy, and probably still just about my favorite ever.

I'm surprised no one's mentioned Final Fantasy IV. IV had a wonderful soundtrack. VI was good. No where near as good as IV though.

12-14-2006, 10:22 AM
I'd say FFVIII with Sorceress Edea's Theme song! :-P

12-14-2006, 11:03 AM
Music from Crash Bandicoot's complete serie - Spyro The Dragon's Serie - Biohazard's Serie - Tekken's Serie -And a lot of others good music...

12-14-2006, 06:47 PM
As a whole? :/

Probably Shadow of the Colossus. x 2

12-14-2006, 11:11 PM
Legend Of Zelda's Hyrule Symphony.. NO DOUBT..No effin' DOUBT

12-15-2006, 03:11 PM
No mentions of FFVI at all? What a shame. First game soundtrack i loved so much i had to buy, and probably still just about my favorite ever.

Actually, I did mention it on the first page...

12-17-2006, 06:06 PM

12-17-2006, 06:57 PM
Lately, I have been fond of the Dragon Quest VIII OST.

12-17-2006, 07:36 PM
I ike a wide variety of music, so it's hard for me to find a soundtrack I don't think is the best lol

Obviously I'm a goth metalhead, so Motte's tunes from Nightmare Creatures I really dig. I also like the Crash Bandicoot musics, as someone mentioned before....I've always loved the tracks there. Dragon Quest VIII YES. Luved the game and the music....I'm digging Rule of Rose's tracks right now, especially A Love Suicide....

12-18-2006, 07:29 AM
I will go to:

Chrono Symphonic - [Darkness Dueling] [Track #5]
Command and Conquer: Red Alert 2 - [Hell March 2] [Track #1]
Final Fantasy Unlimited: Romancing Train (Single) - [Romancing Train] [Track #1]
Grandia III OST - [GR-Turbo] [Track #7] [Disc 1] / [Yes! We Broke Through One More Barrier!] [Track #8] [Disc 1] / [Attack With Conviction!!] [Track #4] [Disc 2]
Ragnarok Battle Offline OST: Adventuner's Inn - [Sajin no Kanata he] [Track #2]
Wild ARMS the 4th Detonator Original Score - [I Look Up at the Sky Because You Are There (Opening Theme)] [Track #2] [Disc 1]

12-21-2006, 02:55 PM
I would probably go with:
Castlevania Symphony of the Night
Castlevania Lament of Innocence
and FFX

12-23-2006, 02:11 AM
Halo and Halo 2's Soundtrack..NONE can argue with me on that since it won the best OST award.

12-23-2006, 05:15 AM
Halo and Halo 2's Soundtrack..NONE can argue with me on that since it won the best OST award.

Which one won an award? They are two different soundtracks.

Also, that does not gratify as them being the greatest ever, because that title belongs to the Poke'Mon Red and Blue Version OSTs.

12-23-2006, 08:17 AM
What???? Pokemon...Oh god...I am not sure about which one though [award]...Well I personally feel it is the best[halo...duh]!

12-23-2006, 10:59 PM

12-26-2006, 09:56 PM
i didnt see anyone mention Skies of Arcadia..that games OST is beautiful..other favorites of mine would have to be REZ, Chrono Trigger, Chrono Cross, Castlevania Symphony of the Night, Jet Grind Radio.

12-28-2006, 07:11 AM
The best soundtracks are the ones you compile yourself, legally of course.

Buy the soundtracks, support the artists, or that's what Trance Kuja would say.

12-29-2006, 02:11 AM
NES: Castlevania III

You do know that so many of the Castlevania games borrowed & tweaked music from the first & 2nd games?

Mr Roboto113
12-29-2006, 03:42 PM
I've gotta say Diddy Kong Racing. Rare makes some pretty good music. Although, I like "catchy" music, so it might not be for you.

The song in there that's my favorite is probably... Crescent Island. Check it out.

12-29-2006, 03:51 PM
...And..I'd just like to point out..Final Fantasy VII = SERIOUSLY OVERRATED. Compared to most of todays games..its music seems bland and generic. Even back then I still considered it bland and generic. The only saving grace was Aeris' theme. And ..well Sephiroth's theme. ...

I have to say, Final Fantasy has a great score. Uematsu and others who compose it are pure awesomeness. But FF7 isn't at the top. I believe the tunes have aged though these generations, especially when you compare the soundtrack to EVERY game we know of. It doesn't have the clean sound of a real orchestra (excluding the two songs above) like its sequels, like it's been mixed. When I finished the game a year ago, I thought to myself, why doesn't the music match the mood of the ending, when Meteor is about to hit and Cloud and his buddies almost fell inside the crater? That's what left a lasting impression in the end. I'll point out, it's not fair to compare classic games like FF7 with today's games, but this is a "Best Video Game Soundtrack Ever" debate, so we can't complain these older games didn't have the opportunity to create quality music.

My picks for best soundtrack:
-Einhander (greatest techno music to embrace a video game)
-Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War (perfect example of how an orchestra/band fits into a game)
-Klonoa: Door to Phantomile
-Guilty Gear XX (rock guitar mixes cleanly into a fighting game)

I respect all of your choices as Best Soundtrack Ever. I like mine better.

01-07-2007, 11:58 PM
I really enjoy Akira Yamaoka and Koji Kondo's work, but FF X is my fav. OST all time. I listen to this soundtrack everyday. Sets the mood so well in the game too... amazingly done.

01-08-2007, 07:28 AM
As a whole; Chrono Trigger Final Fantasy VII, Guilty Gear X/X2, Onimusha 4, Star Ocean: Till The End of Time, Tales of Legendia, Wild ARMS 3rd & 4th, and Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner.

Almost all of the tracks, on every game, were awesome.

Others that stand out are the epic final battle songs on Ace Combat 4, 5,and ZERO. From the looks of it, Super Smash Bros. Brawl doesn't look like it's going to be half bad either...

01-08-2007, 11:57 AM

Shadow of the Colossus

I'm sorry but, Dance Dance Revolution Extreme and DDRMAX2: Dance Dance Revolution 7th Mix's soundtrack pwn all of yours.
Although, being a fan of that kind of music, I'd rather listen to that in a C.D. player rather than a moody (however brilliantly composed) score.
Since there's usually nothing happening at the time that could possibly match the music, I'd rather listen to something standalone than music meant to be aided visually, like a setting in a video game.
Oh, and Sephiroth's theme?
The only medieval choir song I like is Xepher, by tatsh.
Also, it's a really ego-stroking song for Seph.

01-24-2007, 08:49 PM
my favs are

Bust a groove 1&2
Dance Summit
Guilty Gear
Halo 1 &2
Street Fighter 3rd strike

01-26-2007, 11:36 AM
Shadow of the colossus
Beyond Good and Evil
Halo & Halo 2

All of these have outstanding songs here and there, but the one game that has a truly complete and awesome soundtrack would be Twilight Princess

01-28-2007, 02:24 PM
I think the opening of Metal Gear 2, hmm... the legend of zelda ocarina of time (ocarina's melodies), mm.. sonic adventure (most of them).... mm .. final fantasy VIII (when laguna and his team has fights) , FF X (at zanarcan whatever, the battle with jeght in his monster form) . Although it's not the best music but it's so funny that makes it good , TOTAL OVERDOSE (when there is a bunch of mexican gangs attacking you) , and of course the music of FF X-2 (i love all them) , super smash bros and Guilty Gear X

GTA:VC had the best Soundtrack.

01-28-2007, 02:56 PM
Nobody mentions gears of war?

01-29-2007, 07:38 PM
One game that nobody seems to have mentioned, and is probably my favourite soundtrack (although it is pretty hard to call) is Perfect Dark (the N64 one).

Not a bad track in there, and they all sound so damn cool.

Runner up is Command & Conquer (the original one). Again, stuffed with tracks that are just incredibly cool.

02-01-2007, 02:05 AM
For my it's Chrono Cross OST, beautiful.

02-03-2007, 05:12 PM
You are right! perfect Dark has cool songs! ,the battle inside the institute

02-04-2007, 01:55 AM
My favorites in no particular order are...

Xenosaga: Episode 1
Final Fantasy 8
Dirge of Cerberus

Jazz Jackrabbit 2 (PC)
Unreal Tournament (PC)

02-11-2007, 01:42 AM
I think FF VI's soundtrack, although being in a dated MIDI format, has the best melodies. I own most of the symphonic and remixes soundtracks and it just wont get old.

02-11-2007, 12:45 PM
Is this even a competition? The Chrono Cross Original Sound Track trumps all! :)

02-12-2007, 12:35 AM
As a whole? :/

Probably Shadow of the Colossus.

Hello, does anybody know where the soundtrack can be downloaded as a whole =D, i've been looking for it forever XP

so, you time is greatly appreciated thx

02-14-2007, 10:54 AM
Anything by Ken Nakagawa, Daisuke Achiwa and Akira Tsuchiya. Those are the composers of the Atelier Series. (Iris, Marie, Lilie, Viorate, Iris no Atelier Grand Fantasm, Ar Tonelico etc)

Most of the zelda games have AMAZING music.

I'd agree with that. Though to be honest with you, I was a bit underwhelmed by Twilight Princess' soundtrack. Then again, Wind Waker's soundtrack was a very tough act to follow.

02-20-2007, 08:12 AM
if it was for a whole series i'd have to go for the "hitman" OSTs ... but for a single game, it have to be "deus ex", but not from that crappy 2nd part they made ...

terry bogart
02-20-2007, 11:03 AM
My friends, the best soundtracks ever are from SNK and KONAMI, of course. Fatal Fury Special OST is a true classic. By the way, does anybody know where can I download Fatal Fury 2 and Special OST's? And what about Metamorphic Force and Monster Maulers OST's? I know the name of the album that contains Metamphic Force music is Konami Amusement Sounds Autumn '93, but I don't know where to get it. Al I've got is the game rip from an emulator but it does not sound as good as I'd like it to. Please, SOMEBODY HELP ME find it!! Thank yall anyway for making possible such a wonderful webpage such as this!! Long live SNK!!

02-23-2007, 11:39 PM
Emperor: Battle for Dune had a pretty kick ass soundtrack. Probably one of my all time favorites.

02-26-2007, 08:43 PM
Hello, does anybody know where the soundtrack can be downloaded as a whole =D, i've been looking for it forever XP

02-27-2007, 05:59 AM
Chrono Cross & FF 8 are my top favs, with FF 7 & 6 right behind.

03-02-2007, 09:22 AM
Final Fantasy 12 and Okami! These osts kill my bad humor! XD

03-03-2007, 04:37 PM
Too many choices for me.
Tossup between Perfect Dark, the MOTHER series, or Silent Hill.

03-03-2007, 10:43 PM
chrono cross.

03-03-2007, 11:20 PM
Perfect Dark had an awesome sountrack, L1zz.

I liked LoZ, Kingdom hearts, FFX, and Sengokou Musou soundtracks.

Tekken Tag Soundtrack was so win :3

03-05-2007, 12:35 AM
The Shadow of the Colossus soundtrack, Roar of the Earth by 大谷幸 (or Kow Otani) is probably my favourite of all time. Others that come to mind are later Zelda and FF compositions from their respective main series' titles.

03-05-2007, 04:57 PM
i would have to say

anything that dosen't annoy me like.....we love katamari.....>=-D

03-06-2007, 07:15 PM
I would also agree that I have too many soundtracks that are my favorite, but right now, I would considers The KOF original and arrange soundtracks to be a good ones for their beats. (Not KOF 2001 though...hate bad techno)

03-10-2007, 07:29 AM
i would have to say

anything that dosen't annoy me like.....we love katamari.....>=-D

1) Kingdom Hearts
2) Wild Arms II ( for me, this have the best music compare to the other Wild Arms afterall)
3) Zelda ( especially Zelda : Hyrule Symphonic)
4) last but not least Suikoden series...

03-11-2007, 10:00 PM

03-16-2007, 07:05 PM
I've always liked dark orchestral sounds :P

Final Fantasy VIII.

03-19-2007, 08:02 AM
Zelda series (Majoras mask sad tunes mostly)

F-zero X (fits perfectly in the game's mood, better than usual techno tunes similar games have)

Castlevania (ALL of them, nuff said)

Shadow of the colossus (best orchestral soundtrack)

Old Sonic games, mostly Sonic 3 & Knuckles (nothing to do with the crap new generation sonic games have)

Banjo Kazooie (3D platform music at its best)

Starfox (boss tunes are ace in this one)

Faxanadu (NES)

Super Metroid (the norfair ruins music is just awsome, the rest is just great :p)

Diablo 2 (1st level mostly)

Doom 1&2 (never heard of funky tunes that feel "dark and satanic" before :p)

Duck tales (NES) (finest 8 bit music)

Goemons great adventures (Simply AMAZING OST this one, mediocre game though)

Body harvest (Sad and moody piano tunes, spookier than resident evil or silent hill imo)

Super Turrican (couldn't believe my ears when i first played this one on the SNES)

Turtles in time (Snes)

Super Mario kart (all of them but mostly the snes version of Rainbow road)

Vectorman 1 & 2 (Good quality techno tunes on a mega drive? wtf? :p)

...... these are just a few i can think of... but the OST that really amazes me is Donkey kong Country 2 by Dave Wise (Stickerbrush symphony aka brumbles anyone??)

....and sorry, NO Final Fantasy music for me thanks :p :p

03-19-2007, 05:22 PM
Wut's your favorite of all time? Me personally would be between Legend of Zelda: Ocrarina of Time OST and Final Fantasy 7 OST

You are a great man!!! :D

03-25-2007, 05:15 PM
Far too many mentions of FF games!
And Zelda too...
Ok, everyone in the world knows that FF and Zelda have some great tunes.

I agree with anyone who mentioned Chrono Cross; it's a bit MIDI-ish, but the music is elegant and absolutely beautiful.
Some positively excellent soundtracks that I didnt see mentioned (I didnt read through all 6 pages so forgive me if I failed to recognize you) and need to be recognized are:

Jet Force Gemini (N64)
Halo 2 (XBOX)
Zone of the Enders 2 (PS2)
Beyond Good & Evil (PS2, GCN, XBOX, PC)
Anything Kirby (duh)
And MOST of all...
the Ace Combat series (PS2) is absolutely incredible...

03-25-2007, 08:52 PM
GTA:VC had the best Soundtrack.
That game would not of been what it was if it wasn't for the music in it. Pure win.

03-26-2007, 08:49 AM

Having played so many different games, many of which had great music, it was difficult for me to single out my favorite game soundtrack, though I would have to say Mechwarrior 2 for the PC is at the top of my list. For a relatively simple game, and being as old as it is (1995), it's still hard to believe that the quality of the music was lightyears ahead of the game's other aspects, (graphics, sound effects etc.) For a while I had thought myself to be the only person to have ever actually put the game cd into a cd player and actually listen to the tracks aside from hearing them while playing the game. I was pleasantly surprised to discover how wrong I was, there being many others who greatly appreciated the game's excellent music, who also thought they were "unique" in that regard.

Coming in at a close second for me would be Final Fantasy VIII. I found nearly all of the FF soundtracks to my liking, though I'd have to say VII is my least favorite of the one's I've heard. I've never played IX, unfortunately, and I don't think I'll ever try out XI, with WoW (which happens to have excellent music along with the entire WC series) and various single player games taking up my gaming time already.

The Heroes of Might and Magic series' music has always struck me as being one of its more memorable and noteworthy features. Others include the old classics like the Castlevania series (Bloodlines from Dracula X SNES is my favorite), Legend of Zelda, Super Mario, Streets of Rage, Golden Axe, ActRaiser (I recently heard the symphonic suite, which was a real treat), Soulblazer (the Deathtoll battle has one of the coolest endgame boss songs, it really has an epic feel to it), and many, many others.

04-25-2007, 05:40 PM
Favorite Soundtracks:

Final Fantasy VI OSV and Piano Collections
Chrono Trigger OSV
Shadow Hearts: Covenant OST
Legend of Mana OST
Wild ARMS 2 & 3
Valkyrie Profile OST

^ Soundtracks that I find the songs fitting
Tons of other games that I can pull tracks from, but not really the entire soundtrack.

04-26-2007, 01:00 PM
Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

Hell, almost all of the Castlevania Soundtracks are awesome.

Suikoden V
Guilty Gear (anything)
Dead or Alive 2
Almost anything by Yasunori Mitsuda (Chrono Trigger/Cross, Xenosaga episode 1)
Ys Series

Lots more that I can't think of, but these are probably the ones I listen to most.

05-03-2007, 02:30 PM
I would say for me FFVIII is the best.
But none the less some other soundtracks have had left a mark in me, and so it follows:
1. Fahrenheit(Funfact:Angelo Badalamenti who wrote this score also wrote the musical arragment for "Twin Peaks") 2.The Elder Scrolls IV:Oblivion 3.Fable(Funfact: Did you know Danny Elfman wrote the score for this.) 4.Soul Blade(specially Suzi Kim's Edge of Soul)


05-05-2007, 01:58 AM
For me, it's mostly anything Rareware. Throw in some Mario Party/Kart/Bros., a little bit of mixed music, and you got my ideal game soundtracks.

05-06-2007, 11:34 AM
1.Xenogears (The treasure that can't be stolen is the best song ever:D)
2.Xenosaga EPIII (Hepatica~Kosmos is my 2nd most fav VGM)
3.FF VIII (The 1st that draw me to VGM world)
4.Wild arms alter code F
5.Crono cross

07-07-2007, 12:00 PM
1. Legend of Mana! Totally the best!
2. Toshiden Battle Arena 4. (Toshinden Subaru)
3. Rayman 2.
4. Sword of Mana.

Beta Envy
07-13-2007, 05:00 PM
It's hard to tell (Final Fantasy, Silent Hill, the legend of Zelda...) ... but my top one is Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (Michiru Yamane is the best!!)

07-13-2007, 10:02 PM
the soundtracks to kingdom hearts I and II

07-14-2007, 11:53 PM
this is more of technical question than a personal ''oh that one song was pretty good'' style answer.

i think final fantasy 8 had a very good all-round score.

it had everything. an epic opening with bits of the melody from that used here and there through-out the rest of the score to create a pallete/style. it has a record-selling ballad reaching number 3 in the japanese pop music charts and winning the japan gold disc award.

and the music like fragments of memories, drifting, roses and wine, love grows, trust me. they are really heart-felt sounding during the more softer parts of the story.

and for the rough bits: don't be afraid has the military sound to it in keeping with SeeD. Don't be afraid is a really addictive boss theme. ''the landing'' is just kick-ass. and than ''the extreme'' is so full of energy for the final battle. also ''the man with the machine gun'' is pretty unique.

and than for the freaky parts of the game, the likes of lunatic pandora, and compression of time sounds spot on.

the dance scene song is nice too. the same melody as eyes on me, so it retains a style. (romantic ballad / waltz/love scene)

the air ship theme is one of the best IMO.

the castle, maybe i'm a lion, dance with the balamb fish, the oath, the salt flat plains, succsession of witches, fishermans horizon. they all fit well and sound good too.

the soundtrack for ff8 is about as good as they come.

07-16-2007, 01:34 PM
Sonic the Hedgehog (the next-gen 2006 game).

07-16-2007, 07:11 PM
I like many...it's hard to pick just one. But Kingdom Hearts Complete (I like all of the soundtracks by their selves, but they are all in this so...x3) is definitely in the top three. Final Fantasy X and well...pretty much all the Final Fantasy soundtracks are great. Star Ocean 3, and all the Zelda soundtracks too. And others that I'm too lazy to list. x3

07-30-2007, 09:39 PM
Anything by Ken Nakagawa, Daisuke Achiwa and Akira Tsuchiya. Those are the composers of the Atelier Series. (Iris, Marie, Lilie, Viorate, Iris no Atelier Grand Fantasm, Ar Tonelico etc)

omygosh!!! Finally! Someone who loves their music too =)

Crimson King1
07-30-2007, 09:41 PM
I'd mostly have to say Tekken 2's soundtrack

08-01-2007, 08:52 AM
definitely a tie between the tekken 2 strike fighting soundtrack (both volumes), and the tekken 3 playstation soundtrack

do listen to the hidden characters song on the arcade soundtracks of tekken 2 and 3

08-01-2007, 02:34 PM
This topic really puts sometimes me sad.. only seeing that the youths that post here is believed that the video games began from now on from Playstation 1. Them never, not even with the emulators that there is, they have tried to play some video game of the previous consoles. To experience what was a good atmosphere music. or a music very made with given ingenuousness the technical limitations of those times.

Guardia Millenia Fair

10-24-2007, 10:32 PM
Way too many to list, but here's a few.

Mega Man 2 - Best soundtrack ever IMO. Then again, this is what you would expect from a game series inspired by rock n roll music.

Jet Force Gemini - AMAZING. Actually, all of Rare's games had great music.

F-Zero GX - Insane Rock and Techno that perfectly fits the balls-to-the-wall racing action.

Super Mario RPG - My favorite game ever, and the music is defintely a reason why.

Super Smash Bros. Melee - I love Nintendo's tunes, and this is where a bunch of them all came together into one legendary soundtrack. I can't wait for Brawl!

GTA Vice City - All that 80's music in one game......WOW.

Pokemon Red/Blue - Epic, beautiful, and often catchy.

Kirby Air Ride - This one absolutely blew me away.

Diddy Kong Racing - Catchy. As. Hell.

Metal Gear Solid 2 - I don't even know where to start with this one.

10-27-2007, 03:47 PM
i highly recommend compilation Castlevania The Best 1986 - 2004 , they'r remade

10-27-2007, 04:08 PM
"AMAZING. Actually, all of Rare's games had great music." <-- True.

-Grabbed by the Ghoulies: It's like Banjo-Kazooie with a Halloween theme.
-Donkey Kong Land
-Pretty much all Rare games

10-27-2007, 06:42 PM
Too many to list...

Exactly. Too many for me to mention...

11-04-2007, 08:13 AM

11-07-2007, 08:58 PM

The best soundtrack ever is the soundtrack for Grandia. It's almost perfect (there are admittedly 4 or 5 tracks which disappoint). Aside from that though, my other favourites are:

Castlevania Bloodlines
Jade Cocoon: Story of the Tamamayu (or Tamamayu Monogatari)
Grandia 2
Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles

11-09-2007, 04:51 PM

11-13-2007, 05:38 PM
Favorite of all time remains: Ecco The Dolphin: Defender Of The Future. The best soundtrack in the illustrious but no doubt frustrating career of one of the best composers ever to produce video game music (Tim Follin).

Shadow Of The Colossus is the best soundtrack - in fact, one of the only truly good pieces of work, if not the only - in the last few years, and so deserves special mention for having broken the trend of the last decade or so. Remember when amazing soundtracks were somewhat regular? Where are today's Final Fantasty IVs? Chrono Triggers? Castlevania: SOTNs? It's not just video games, either. Movies used to blow me away with their music. I haven't even thought about a movie's score since Jurassic Park.

11-14-2007, 07:56 AM

11-14-2007, 09:19 AM
My fav: Xenogears

My fav orchestral adaptation: FFVIII FLWV Orchestral

11-15-2007, 07:24 AM

I'll second that, although I think God of War merits mention in this conversation, too. . .

. . .even though it's not in the same league as Shadow of the Colossus.

11-15-2007, 08:19 AM
My favorite for the SNES era is Tales of Phantasia. Almost every theme complemented its scene/area perfectly.

11-15-2007, 09:06 AM
Final Fantasy IV

11-18-2007, 08:49 AM

11-20-2007, 09:53 PM
Gotta be FFVIII and FFX! The Auron theme song.... Awsome. Blue Fields.... Yeah it goes without saying.
I have really enjoyed the Crash Bandicoot music more specificly Crash Bash. And Myst has been one of my old favs before I even got into game music.
My Cell phone only rings game music... Lol is that bad???

Garnet Storm
11-20-2007, 09:59 PM
Maple Story

LOL Maple Story? Thats great..... Does anyone know how to get the music from free on line games like that? I have been playing one called Redstone there are some good tracks on there too.

If you wanna check it out or come play an awsome new game with me you can find it at playredstone.com

I go by the screen name LLLunatic.

Still to this day, at the ripe old age of 29, I say Creatures and Creatures 2 on the C64.
I spent years trying to figure out how to convert Sid files to Mp3, and my ickle pea brain couldn't operate at that level, so I bought the soundtracks on cd off ebay.

11-23-2007, 02:32 PM
Legend of zelda: ocarina of time is the best soundtrack, I recommend the new super mario galaxy soundtrack is an epic music

11-24-2007, 07:40 PM
Gremlins 2 The New Batch

Hah. Gremlins 2 actually does have a really good soundtrack. I don't know that I'd call it my favorite ever, though.
