Music Favorite Scores from Video Game Soundtracks?

Recommended Posts

I know there's a thread about this topic buried somewhere that I could be bumping, but this thread isn't about entire soundtracks. It is about individual scores developed for the soundtracks. For example, I'm currently listening to (as I type this) BrawlBRSTMs3 X's upload of "Grasslands, All the Way" from the soundtrack of  one of my favorite games of all time: Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story. What are your favorites of these, and why?

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

My List (from quite a few competitors... I did a lot from the same games, couldn't help it...)

 

1. Anthem of Braves, Disgaea: Hour of Darkness- Literally, perfect. It's the perfect tune to bring back nostalgia. I also find it encouraging.

2. In the Final, Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story- Gets everything right for a final boss theme, and the fight didn't disappoint either.

3. Brine Cave, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon 2- Sounds like a post-rock band came in from the sea.

4. DK Isle, Donkey Kong 64- Even better than Dire, Dire Docks at the same thing.

5. Dark Crater, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon 2- Sounds like the nuclear apocalypse (that may be incoming...).

6. The Giant, Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story- So Epic. The battles themselves let the theme down in my opinion...

7. Beware the Forest's Mushrooms, Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars- Captures the spirit of a forest pretty well, of course a dubious one.

8. Pokémon League (Nighttime), Pokémon Diamond/Pearl/Platinum- Extremely sad and extremely musical.

9. Waltz in the Lake (Inside Bowser), Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story- Sounds like it ought to be Nautilus' (LoL) theme.

HM. Ray of Light Into the Future, Disgaea: Hour of Darkness- Another inspirational theme from Anime turned into a strategy RPG (Other way around actually...).

HM. Fungi Forest (Day and Night), Donkey Kong 64- Both do well to capture each time of day.

HM. Witch Hunting, Disgaea: Hour of Darkness- Sounds like we're burning some folks at the stake today!

 

Most of the links go to times... Whoops. Too lazy to fix it. Oh well.

La Cloche - Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance (more English horn!)

Ruins of Lemuria - Golden Sun: The Lost Age (This is gorgeous. I want to record a cover of this with live instruments some day)

Route 4 - Pokemon X and Y (Pokemon X and Y's OST was awesome. Sad they didn't really carry that on with Sun/Moon)

Hyrule Castle - The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess (This is so good. OMG. If only Nintendo would make a live version of it. It's just amazing)

Eastern Palace - The Legend of Zelda: Link Between Worlds (The original from ALTTP is great, too)

Dark World Overworld - The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (ALBW's version did not better this. I don't know why Nintendo wants to turn this into a soft violin piece, it's nothing of the sort)

Hyrule Castle - The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

Tarm Ruins - The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons (Also, listen to this amazing oboe/English horn cover.)

 

I could go on and on. I could certainly expand Golden Sun and Pokemon, but it's getting late, so I'll stop there.

I cant narrow down a particular track, but I would have to say my all time favorite game soundtrack would have to be from the ace combat series. Especially the ones from 4 & 5.

 

Like them so much they are the most expensive CDs that I have ever bought, just so I could have the physical copy of them.

I dunno. I usually download them from Zaptroxix. That channel has compiled all of the Soundtracks for each Ace Combat game. Too bad they don't last more than 2/3 minutes, though. I'd like to listen to an extended version of "The Execution" from Electrosphere or Shattered Skies' "Comona" track.

Yeah i mean downloading them is one thing (and thats how i first heard them), but just having the actual physical item with the artwork for a collector like me just makes it that much better.

I feel ya. I felt so jealous when I heard that Project Aces released limited edition albums of AC music as exclusives for the Japanese games. Same for the "Aces at War" book.

Another favorite of mine would have to be the Parasite Eve score, while nothing really memorable music wise in my opinion. It brings back memories of playing that game with my friends trying to beat it. If fact i still have that same save file from when that game was brand new.

 

Just like the sound effects of resident evil 2. (Try beating that game without a memory card.)
