Thread: Greatest song in a video game.

  1. #1

    Default Greatest song in a video game.

    OVGD I want to know what is the greatest song that you have ever heard in a video game. Please include the title of the game it is from, the title of the song, name of the band, a link to the song or a sample, and reason why you like it.

    Personally I love the opening from Macross VF-X2 for PlayStation.

    The song is called Get Free by Humming Bird

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oXQaB8aM380

    I like it because is reminds me of classic 80's rock music and I always think Queen could have done an amazing English version of the song.

    ^That's actually a pretty badass song.

    Now when you said "name of the band" I got a little confused. Do you want people to say their favourite song that is background music like Gerudo Desert or The Super Mario Bros. theme or something from Shadow of the Colossus or Final Fantasy? Or do you want the kind of songs that have a beginning and end that don't loop and have lyrics?

    Instrumental version of "Mad World" by Gary Jules in Gears of War 3.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kjY1WYB3We0

    The cut-scene it is part of is already moving but when "Mad World" starts it just hits another emotional level.

    I should have worded that better name of the artist how plays the song or wrote the song I can't think of a good word that uses a broad enough meaning.

    The Halo 1 Theme!! It sets the tone of the game so well. Or Cynthia's Theme in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl I'm not quite sure if it's in Platinum though.

    League of Legends - Dominion
    It's a long song, though mainly because different parts of the song play depending on how drawn-out and/or how close a match is. Pretty much the music become more epic later on in a long, neck-to-neck battle.

    Let's see, oh gosh, tons of Zelda and Kingdom Heart songs incoming:

    I never played Ocarina of Time, but I still love the music from what I've heard.
    Twilight Princess has some awesome soundtracks
    Midna's Lament, Midna's theme, Hyrule field theme, Sacred Grove (Lost Woods), Temple of Time (beginning, not the dungeon theme), Stallord, and others I can't think of at the moment.

    Skyward Sword: Almost all of the songs XD I loved them

    Kingdom Hearts II: I don't even know what all the songs are called since they have cryptic names lol but I love Sanctuary, Simple and Clean, Dearly Beloved, Rage Awakened, Fate of the Unknown, and Oh my gosh, I just love that series XD I feel like I'm fangirling all over the place LOL

    That song was in the game? And personally, while I liked Battle for Bikini Bottom's soundtrack quite a bit better, I liked the final boss theme a lot. Industrial Park gets honorable Mention though.

    Yup. It was during the final boss, when you fight Neptune in the Krusty Krab.

    Maybe it's just me, but the final boss from the game and the actual Goofy Goober Rock are distinctly different.

    Hmm... If I had to narrow it down to just one, I'd say "Door ~ Kaze ga fuku HOSHI de ..." by Miki Takahashi from the video game Evolution Worlds. First off, it's a pretty song. Second off, it's the first Japanese pop song I ever heard, and that makes it special to me. Here's a link... Spoilers for that game, if you care.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=melxpro54uU

    Other songs I've really enjoyed are "To Zanarkand" from Final Fantasy X, "Warriors of Earth" (main theme) from Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love (it really gets me pumped up!), and the final boss theme for Sonic Colors (downright scary). And, speaking of Sonic, I like a lot of Crush 40's stuff (e.g. "It Doesn't Matter"), and a lot of the stuff from Sonic Heroes. I also loved the theme of sadness from Sonic Adventure 1.

    The Super Mario Bros. theme song is always good. And I really like the boss music theme from Super Mario RPG. The ending theme to MK64 too. The Galaxy games just had awesome music all around.

    The Advance Wars series had good music, though I can't pinpoint any certain song. The main theme and theme of sadness from Skies of Arcadia. I also like "Whisper of Hell" and the theme of sadness ("Sorrowful Angel") from Disgaea 1, and the opening themes for Disgaea 2 (cool) and Disgaea 3 (funny). The song that plays in Trauma Center: Under the Knife 2 when you're up against new forms of GUILT was super intense. Pokémon White/Black Version's Team Plasma theme was enjoyable. I really liked the trainer battle theme from Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire. Ashley's theme in Wario Ware: Touched! was quite amusing.

    Whew, I think that's everything for me.

    Aria Di Mezzo Carattere. It blows my mind that Uematsu composed an actual opera during the 16-bit era.
