Best Video Gaming Music?

#1 Postby Xiaotsu » Fri Feb 05, 2010 12:51 am

As the title suggests; what music, if any, do you like, from any particular video game?

My favorite gaming music has to be the countless instrument tracks and background themes from the Legend of Zelda titles. I believe it's all orchestrated from Ocarina of Time upwards, too, even if it sounds midi or retro.

I also quite like the different tunes from the Halo series, too. Especially the main theme.

That video was amazing. :3

And yeah, the FFCC soundtrack was brilliant. I think most FF music is amazing.

That's probably been one of the best battle theme tunes i've ever heard.

Final Fantasy music is awesome, most of it is composed by Nobuo Uematsu. All of his work is amazing, even though he doesn't work for Square-Enix anymore.

I heard about him leaving, it's a real shame. :(



I doubt anyone here knows about Sin And Punishment but i've always loved its background music. Always found it funny, being the kind of game that it is. XD

I've never heard that. o: got a youtube link you can post or anything? (:





These two tracks are epic soundtracks from the Dynasty Warriors series. Dynasty Warriors is second to me only to the LoZ series. Half of why I enjoy it is purely because of the music. All original compositions and performed by actual living, breathing musicians.

Enjoy. :)

I recently realized how amazing the music in Icewind Dale is. My favorite is the Kuldahar Theme.
