Do you like video game music?

Postby GeminiShamrock » Fri Jun 10, 2011 9:32 pm

Yes, this may make me come off as the nerdy type. But if you listen to some video game music, particularly music from video games made during the '80s and early '90s (before the 16-Bit Era, that is), you might be surprised to find that there were some talented musicians behind it.

Take the intro to Mega Man II, for example. Tell me that doesn't sound like prog-metal.

I do. Video game music is great. I have the soundtrack for LOZ:OOT and SSBM. Don't have more, should probably get me some.

P.S. I remember Mega Man II, that was a f*cking fun game.

I grew up on 8-bit tunes so I prefer versions of real songs that sound like that tinny stuff, though modern game music is good too. Why everyone like the moon, quackshot has much better music.

Haha, I have the second to top rated comment on the Moon theme remix.

Nice selections so far, everybody. But I think I found part one of the ultimate video game soundtrack. (Yes, it's Mega Man II. >_<) Give it a listen, please?

Final Fantasy 6: Aria Celes Locke Edger anddancing mad are all awsome

There's actually a band based on the Mega Man games called Protomen; they do concept albums based on each game. (I think there are only three or four, but don't quote me on that.) Anyway, they're pretty good, but the lead vocalist starts to sound like he's trying to take a dump when he sings really, really low. (That's really my only complaint.)

Wow...didn't think anyone else listened to video game music...I listen to it about as often as "regular" music. My favorite music of this type would be Assassin's Creed 2, LOZ, SSB, and my all time favorite, Halo.

I'm an immense video game nerd.

The most consistantly awesome 8-bit soundtracks, in my opinion, were in Sunsoft games. Fester's Quest might have been a laborious game, but it had really cool music.

Really, though, the best song in the annals of 8-bit history is as follows: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NPmXiYkCjo4

i adore the battle music in the final fantasy series, especially the boss fights. with some of them, it's like the bosses were living in a giant disco :lol:

I don't remember a lot of the music from the earlier Final Fantasy games. Enlighten me, please?

Also, and you may have to disregard the game it's from in order to form an honest and unbiased opinion, but what do you think of when you hear the music in the link below? (Mega Man II Soundtrack - Part II)

If you're talking Final Fantasy, my favorite soundtrack would have to be the one from FFVII. The whole game was supremely epic, and the music only made it better. It had two of the best boss themes of all time in my opinion: Seven Winged Angel, and Jenova.
