    The one soundtrack when you knew you were hooked to Game Music

    This may sound rather low-brow but for me the Jet Moto 1 s/t back in 96-97 was IT for me! I loved DKCountry quite a bit but not so much as to look for ways to hear it out of the game)... so when I realized I could play PSx discs (some of them) in my car cd player I almost ***t my pants Yea. The Jet Moto series propelled me here. Sadly I rarely ever hear anyone talk about it.

    What was your first love?

    The soundtrack to Chrono Cross was what turned me on to the world of video game music. I'd already had the soundtracks to FFVII, FFIX, and FFX, but I listened to them simply because they reminded me of games I'd enjoyed. The Chrono Cross soundtrack, however, opened me up to all different kinds of VGM, and finding/enjoying it inspired me to search for other albums on the Web, which is how I found GH. It's my favorite soundtrack, even after all this time.

    To this day, I still haven't played Chrono Cross.

    Lots of game music discussions going on right now. Anyway for me it was Baladium's Drive from Klonoa 1. I had a game save right before the fight with Baladium only so that I could listen to the music... Eventually I began recording the music on audio cassettes via microphone, which sounded horrible. Many years later, I'm here

    Sonic the Hedgehog. Lol Still some of the catchiest tunes I'll ever hear.

    Chrono Trigger was also awesome along with FFVII in my earlier days of game music.

    Turrican 2 was the one that did it for me. The tunes were and still are quite catchy and epic, and I like the way how Chris Hülsbeck managed to make the most out of his synthesizers sound-wise.

    The Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past, Duke Nukem 3D (I only liked about four tracks), and Final Fantasy VII.

    The Legend of Zelda is the only one I still listen to nowadays. (mostly from the first Orchestral Game Concert album)

    The first game that got me into game music? Medievil for the PS1, that was one awesome soundtrack (sounded kinda like Danny Elfman's music) and it added humor to the game, while still fitting in to the style.. SIR DANIEL FORTESQUE ALL THE WAY!

    Honestly, it was probably Super Mario World. I've always loved the music from that game, and it really made me listen to music in other games as well.

    Pretty much a combination of everything I grew up playing. So yeah, I figure nothing but Streets of Rage, Mega Man/Mega Man X, Street Fighter II and whatever SNK fighters as a kid will turn anybody on to video game music.

    Even though I had played some games with pretty good soundtracks before it, I think the first one that had a really strong effect on me was Lufia 1's. Definitely had the most memorable songs I had ever heard in a game before.

    All the Crash Bandicoot game soundtracks made me enjoy ! That's what I decided to research them around the web.
    But many other OSTs enjoyed me too !
