Favorite Game Music


#291

Oh by FAR for me is the main theme of Dragon Age: Inquisition.
I stayed at a house on an island where I had to get to work by boat, and just standing at the front with a flag wavering over my head, slowly making my way over the Oslo Fjord (Norway), listening to this soundtrack made me feel like I was conquering the world.

Man.

I was just thinking about this thread this morning. One of my favorite things about the Morrowind soundtrack was how laidback some of the pieces were. These are two favorites.:

Blessing of Vivec

Caprice


#293

Just a soupcon – Ed Bogas’s wonderfully idiosyncratic music from Psi-5 Trading Company.


#294

Age of Wonders 1 and 3 soundtracks for me. Beyond awesome!

Edit: I should also add the Unreal Tournament (UT99) soundtrack to this.

I would buy SH2 again. No need for HD upgrade. Just vanilla SH2 is fine. I’m not going to play it again, maybe show it to people who haven’t played it before, but having it just sitting in my library will give me a warm fuzzy feeling. This game is an eye opener in terms of the music and the wtf!? plot.

And Konami ran this franchise into the ground.


#297

Yeah, I know, bummer, Silent Hill is done for. The last time it was at least decent was Shattered Memories. It’s over, we have to accept it.


#298

One of Rob Hubbard’s tracks for ‘Delta.’ Derived from Phillip Glass’s Koyaanisqatsi score, apparently, and/or Pink Floyd’s On The Run, but as always Hubbard makes it into his own inimitable thing.


#299

Yeah that’s definitely Pink Floyd’s On The Run and a track from Koyaanisqatsi in there! Very cool rendition.

Oh hey, thanks for bumping this thread. A friend turned me onto this podcast a week or so ago and it’s AMAZING. Covers all manner of soundtracks.

I love that theme!!! So majestic.

The theme in the main menu of Divinity: OS is also fantastic.


#302

My most recent game soundtrack instabuy was Nex Machina, the entire thing is just fantastic if you like synthwave (well, I’m not a huge fan of the vocals on the first track, but there’s an instrumental version). If it reminds you of the old Amiga demoscene music, that’s because the artists were both prominent Amiga MOD musicians.

I think this is my favourite track:


(so empowering when this plays in the game)

Closely followed by this one:

Mandatory requirement: high volume.


#303

Ooh, looking forward to hearing this. I played a few minutes of Nex Machina at a friend’s house but didn’t note the music. Sounds right up my alley.


#304

I’ve been meaning to get that since they remastered it, and since it looks like there’s still a long wait before DOS2 comes to PS4, so looks like I’lld o that after all! Thanks for the tip - love majestic game themes =)

Actually, Assassins Creed Origins theme in the start menu reminds me a bit of DA:I as well.


#305

I just uploaded a new capture of one of my favorite tracks. It is from Seiken Densetsu 3, “Where Angels Fear to Tread”


#306

I don’t know about ‘favorite’ but this track has been sticking in my head lately… this is the music playing during the Wooded Kingdom level in Super Mario Odyssey:

It also transitions into an 8-bit version when Mario goes into the 8-bit game sections.


#307

I remember when Blue Sky Gaming was a thing.

#308

Lately, I’ve had the three soundtracks on a near-constant loop at work:

Chrono Trigger:

Nier Tomato:

Chrono Cross:


#309

Playing Nier Tomato at the moment and the soundtrack is tremendous.

I rediscovered Star Control II soundtrack due to discussion in another thread, and made one track my ringtone. This game is so goofy and charming!

Some of the remixes are pretty good too.
