    Final Fantasy 7 - Crisis Core had the best music of any video game I've played.

    Oh my god. HL2 is extremely unremarkable to me and I don't remember ANY songs from it, but THAT one has stuck with me as one of the best piece of video game music EVER. It made a part of the game that would've been standard Source Engine tomfoolery into an AMAZING memorable scene that I hope to replay soon.

    Video game music huh? I have too many favorites.

    My favorite Pokemon theme


    My favorite version of the Geese Howard theme I posted on the King of Fighters thread.


    I love the older Dynasty Warriors, until they decided to go Super Saiyan in Strikeforce, and then give everyone a hand cannon in 7.


    But this guy's theme tune still sends chills down my spine.

    Okay I'm done now.

    Shout-out to my Sonic loving homies! (Yeah 2006 is a terrible game but don't even deny that both versions of that song are fantastic)

    Another ZOE fan, how did I miss this?!? *brohoof!*

    Anyway, as I'm sure I've said before I'm a massive fan of this type of music, I think it's a hugely under rated type of music, and score composers in general (unless they're John Williams) don't get nearly enough recognition.

    I'm surprised this one hasn't been posted yet:
    This is one of my absolute favourite video game themes, I got to see it performed live a couple of years ago at Video Games Live in London, needless to say it was awesome!

    This is another favourite of mine, but then I like pretty much everything McCreary has written :D

    I'm not really a fan of Final Fantasy (in fact FFX is about the one one I've played) but I really enjoyed the music from it.

    I've always liked this one despite never really playing the game (I downloaded an emulator ROM of it yonks ago, but didn't really play it)

    Just a few of my favourites, I'm sure there are a ton more I could add though.

    Video game music takes up at least 60% of all tracks on my iPod. Here are some of my favourites.


    Be warned: Don't listen to this late at night, when you're the only person awake, using high-bass noise-reducing earphones. Creeped me the hell out the first time I did that.


    Plus its Sonic Generations remix.


    As above. I regularly listen to 8 minutes of just the bass and percussion.


    Who else played Lego Island?


    Starfox Adventures remains one of my favourite games from that series. This remains one of my favourite songs.

    There are far too many to list here...

    Oh we're talking FF music now? Sorry for another long post, but being one of the biggest FF fans ever, you had it coming.

    Of the recent posts, these are my faves:
    Live and Learn
    All the Knuckles raps
    Sonic 2 Boss theme
    Sonic 3 Boss theme*
    Dark Messenger
    Man with the Machine Gun
    Battle with Gilgamesh*

    Gilgamesh is best Final Fantasy Time Lord.

    *: why didn't I post these?

    Before long I'll have all my video game music I have downloaded on this thread.

    These Sonic ones comes to mind, for starters:


    Yes, that second one IS a PMV of E.G.G.M.A.N.

    I...... can't believe you guys. No Megaman music? Sad face.



    Also this means we can include The Protomen, hands down best video game inspired band. I feel this is good times.
