Video game music
« on: March 15, 2011, 12:31:25 am »
I listen to a lot of vide game music, it's pretty much the only kind of music I'm interested in. From the beeps and bops of classic 8-bit music to the orchestrated masterpieces of some games today, I love them all!

Here's just a few I love...
Super Mario Galaxy - "Buey Base Galaxy"
Okami - "Ryoshima Plains"
Paper Mario: the Thousand Year Door - "Crystal Stars"
Earthbound - "You've Come Far Ness"
pokemon Diamond/Pearl - "Route 209"

Is there any video game music you like?

I listen to mostly video game soundtracks (as opposed to their scores). Some of them include:

Burnout 3 Takedown: "Just Tonight" - Jimmy Eat World
Crazy Taxi: "Middle Children" - Pivit
DiRT 2: "There's No Secrets This Year" - Silversun Pickups
NFS Hot Pursuit 2 [2002]: "Wall of Shame" - Course of Nature
Kingdom Hearts: "Simple and Clean" - Utada Hikaru
Kingdom Hearts 2: "Sanctuary" - Utada Hikaru
Gran Turismo 4: "It's All About You" - Dakota Star
Gran Turismo 2: "My Hero" - Foo Fighters

And a lot more of where those came from. ;)

I also really like...

Civilization 4 - "Menu Theme"
kingdom Hearts - "Main Theme?" (Even though I've never played it, I've heard the music, and really like it.)
Okami - "Northern Country Kamui" (SO much great music in that game, can't pick just one!)

Indeed there is.  Music from the Plants vs Zombies game is awesome for me.  Especially that song that plays at the end credits "Zombies On Your Lawn"

Sonic the Hedgehog (various games)
Streets of Rage 1-2
Ristar
Thunderforce
Resident Evil 1-4
Metal Gear Solid 1-4
Final Fantasy (various)
Dynamite Headdy
Gitaroo Man
Kingdom Hearts
Zone of the Enders
Zelda (various)
Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World (I love Another Winter)
Little Big Planet
Yoshi's Story
Mario Galaxy

I've got loads more and that's just a few :D

"As long as humans continue to be the ruthless destroyer of other living beings, we will never know health or peace. For as long as people massacre animals, they will kill each other. Indeed, those who sow the seed of murder and pain will never reap joy or love." - Pythagoras of Samos

"Gaia, the beautiful, rose up, broad blossomed, she that is the steadfast base of all things. And fair Gaia first bore the starry cosmos, equal to herself, to cover her on all sides and to be a home forever for the blessed Gods." - Hesiod
