Oh yeah KH: 3D is going to be great. This is another good theme.
This was one of my favorites battles too.

Wow. Sounds like a mirrored image of Vanitas Theme :O
I like it. I tried this battle and LS raped me with his dark dome shadow doppleganger
I'm leveling up Terra, Aqua, and Ventus and melding so I can get their ultimate shotlocks and the ultima keyblade.
I want to know though when you get the void gear is it the red one or the gray one. The red one looks cooler. Also does it make the gear visual effects when it slashes? Did you beat MF yet?
Back on the music topic I think BBS has the best version of Dearly Beloved. It feels like a little of Ven's theme is in it.
I love love LOVE game music.
A lot of you have already mentioned some great songs I already know, and some I didn't, so I just want to share some of my favorites.
Love a lot of the Chrono series music. Chrono Trigger had some amazing masterpieces, but my favorite has to be Chrono Cross' opening theme "Time's Scar". It's so atypical from Squaresoft music of the time, I really love all the folk instruments and somewhat Celtic flair:
Also, got to play a game which was one of Nobuo Uematsu's few non-FF games, Lost Odyssey. Lots of great themes in this game, with a more understated tone, where his FF themes tend to be very epic and grand. Sheena Easton does all the vocal work for the music in this game and really shines in the two vocal songs. I especially like the song "Eclipse of Time", which runs through the end credits, very simple and beautiful:
I wish the Bust a groove franchise had lived on. The first game in the series had some amazing songs. Especially Kitty-N's theme, catchiest, best song ever!! Forget about Guitar Hero and all that shit, this is what music games started as:
I absolutely love video game music.
There are two soundtracks I really love that stand out for me.
And even though it's not on the same level, I really like some of the tunes from Star Fox 64:
He also did Xenogears (among many others)
I find this song from Baten Kaitos by Motoi Sakuraba interesting. It's very different from anything I've heard in other games.
Just abuse Dodge Roll with Ven and Cartwheel with Aqua. At the beginning run up to VLS and hit him to stop him from using that dome attack. I still haven't beaten him with Terra since his Slide SUCKS SO MUCH. I haven't defeated MF yet but I did get him down to 2 health bars and then he became invisible and destroyed me. Oh the Void Gear you get is Black and Grey/White. I haven't noticed the sounds it makes when you strike someone.
So back on topic I also like these songs:
Oh MAN! There are soooooooooooooooo many songs I don't know where to begin! Slowly but surely I'll post all I can think of but for now I'll start off with a few of my favorites and I have a lot of them lol In my opinion video game music is better than most music on the radio! ^_^
This one is a cool mix of Raise Thy Sword from Soul Calibur 2:
I love Baby Bowser's Battle Theme:
This is a very talented trumpet player:
The Doom Dragon was a bitch when I first fought it but with training and the beautiful Iris he was no problem:
And my last one for now:
Wow! Thanks for all the responses, everyone!
I have to go through these last dozen or so posts and sample some of this music. I never really played any of the gaming platforms past Nintendo 64, so I have not heard of many of the games you guys mentioned--so this music will be all new to me.
The person who posted the theme I like the most will get a free kiss.
winner will be announced within the next day or two.
Streets of Rage 2
Ah Street Fighter Alpha 3
I really loved the music from Street Fighter 3, I thought the particular arrangement so cool.
Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days- Dearly Beloved
This has to be my favorite version of the theme.
Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories- Namine's Theme
Oh, this has turned into a contest? In that case, forget all that other stuff I posted.
I submit this:
I shall win it!
Would post more, but it seems youtube just went down...
I thought I had already posted in this thread, weird. But a lot of great music has already been posted!
Jet Grind Radio:
I always loved the Hymn of the Fayth as well, especially in the Kilika Sending scene:
Ugh, now I want to play that game again. Such great memories.
Wow, so many awesome memories in this thread!
Some of my recent favorites:
Mass Effect 2 Suicide Mission
Uncharted 2 Nate's Theme
Dragon Age Origins Main Theme
A contest you say? If that's the case then I've already won ^_^ And to solidify my victory I give you Shin "Orgasima"
But WAIT there's more!
SSMBB has some KICKASS music!
This is one of my all time favorite threads ^_^
And I still have hours upon hours of music left so I'll leave you with two more of my favorite video game songs. These come from one of my favorite fighting games Dead or Alive!
My work is far from done, but I don't want to overload you all more than I already have Keep posting the great songs guys
To join the rest of the choir, I love the music/soundtracks from the video games back in the day. I have so many favorites, so many games that are appearing in my head as having fantastic soundtracks (Legend of Zelda, MarioKart, The Sims).
But the game that I found myself grooving to the most while playing was indeed Sonic.
^I remember when my cousin and I made up our own lyrics to that one (well really, all of them. ) and would sing them while one of us was trying to complete the course. I mean full-blown lyrics. We had a few verses, a hook and a bridge. It's been so long ago, I forgot how most of it went. I think I only remember part of the chorus we made up.. it went something like, "You're going downnnnnnn, you're going dow-ow-owwwnnnnnn, you're going down"
^Doubt anyone will beat that.
^ Check your first video link. I don't think one of yours came through...
Thanks for all the submissions guys! It's going to take me a little longer than expected to get through the tunes that are completely new to me. I'll extend the 'contest' for a few days...and announce a winner soon.
Sonic 2 music is hands down is in my top 3. The music is just so good and when I hear it I get excited and it gets stuck in my head.
I'm surprised no one has mentioned the music from Guild Wars yet. That game has some beautiful instrumental music. The Eye of the North theme is awesome (its the song on the current GW log in screen I believe). HOwever, my favorite music was the song they played on the log in screen from the original, Prophecies campaign. It was a beautiful solo violin playing, and iunfortunately I have not been able to find that music yet.
"Dark Phoenix knows nothing of love!"
Sonic is a great game! The bonus stage to Sonic 2 and the Carnival Night zone are two of my favorites....very well I shall post some of my favorite Sonic music for your enjoyment brace yourselves now!
I thought it was cool when they played that as I was zipping around trying to hit Perfect Chaos in the head.
Shadow was so badass in this game
I like the song...the game was..meh..it was ok
Naturally we can't forget the classics this is one of my favorites.
There's speculation that MJ had a hand in Sonic 3's music composition. I do hear the similarities but Idk, I'm not sure...what do you all think?
That boss was a bitch when I was younger...he's still a bitch now lol But the theme is badass
Eerily cool lol
Still one of my favorites!
OK...ok my last one for the time being....I PROMISE! I got carried away by all the awesomeness! lol I sound like a complete nerd but that's ok. Such sweet memories. Thankfully I have these games in my xbox live arcade and I think I'll go start new files and beat them all again ^_^
^ You and Moe are killing me!
I can't express enough my love for the Sonic themes. Carnival Night was one of those wacky songs with a hot beat that made me want to bust a move. It is a fun one to dance to.
And Moe...Oil Ocean was another favorite of mine. Shit was hot!
I'm sorry I couldn't resist....that remix is hot!
Somebody please SHOOT ME! How the FUCK could I forget about flying battery!!!!????
This is another one of my favorite games
This played during the Ethereal Queen fight
And this one played during the fight with Crosell
Alrighty...thanks for all of your submissions, guys!
I've discovered some amazing new music, thanks to you all! There were many great clips posted and it was overwhelming to judge them...
First off, I have to say that I did not use any of the Sonic the Hedgehog music in this 'contest' because I am obviously biased...and they all would have won! So, everything excluding Sonic was fair game...
3rd place goes to....
I loved this!!!
You're right...whoever played that trumpet was killin' it! It's such a grand arrangement...
Bowser should be flattered to have such a work attached to his name.
And the Runner-Up...is...
Yes, it is perfection.
I love the urgency of the music and the way everything blends together. It's an emotionally moving track. Glad you posted the clip!
The violin will melt one's heart...
...and the winner is!
This was like a dark and serene ride through the dark passageways of an Egyptian pyramid. The arrangement goes all over the place--but never lost my attention.
I would want to make love to someone with this as background music.
Oh my god I love VGM! I get made fun of all the time on vent because everyone is like "lol i turn that shit off right after install" and I can't believe it. Here are some of my favorites:
Jungle theme from Lode Runner: TOR/MMR
The lounge theme from Hasbro Sorry! for PC
Tristram from Diablo
Pretty much everything from BioWare and Blizzard games
Oh wow! I placed! AWESOME! ^_^ lol I may not have won but it's cool, there were some hard choices to choose from. This was a lot of fun. Let's keep the awesome music coming guys
Sweet! Thanks huntneo! I'm kind of surprised it was Toru that won it and not Harrogath, but I'll take it. Actually, I can't say I'm too surprised - Toru is beautiful in its own right, it just takes a certain musical palate to enjoy it, I thought.
Diablo 2 is just a beautiful game like that. I used to be obsessed with the game, and I admit it's kind of a run-of-the-mill hack/slash type of game, but it's just utterly beautiful.
The music is sensational and it's really visually stunning.
Each act is modeled after a different place on earth (medieval Europe, Arabian desert, Indian jungles, Hell , and the Russian/Central Asian plains), so you get different visuals and a distinct "feel" in each place.
Nice choices by the runners-up, too. I love that Kingdom Hearts song, especially.
That Kingdom Hearts song rocks but that Mysterious Figure is such a dick. I probably fought him more than 50 times now. I only keep going back because of the theme lol.
This one would be my favorite from Sonic:
I saw Sonic 2 at toys r us a few years back. It was paused at the Aquatic Ruins level. I started playing it and I was positively dumbstruck when I heard this song. It had probably been 10 years or more since I had last heard this song (or played this game).
But this one is my all time Favorite:
It was such treasure finding the hidden track while searching for songs on my PS one games.
Do you not see how necessary a world of pains and troubles is to school an intelligence and make it a soul? - John Keats
I've grown rusty with fighting games these days but I will never forget what the Namco sound team was working with during the days of Tekken 2 and Soul Blade (or depending on region, Soul Edge, predecessor to Soul Calibur).
To this day, I'm impressed with the entire Tekken 2 soundtrack but these three especially shine.
Paul's Miracle Big Crushing Fist
Razor have you tried Torchlight? I'm going to assume you have since it has creators from the original Diablo.
I love this!
Silent Hill 2(music by Akira Yamaoka )
I agree 100% with this post hah
This song alone makes me want to get this game! Bowser always has the best themes!
^ That's hot.
They always hook Bowser up!
^Every time I hear that music I can hear Mario swimming up towards the submarine and the sound effects he makes while swimming.
I REALLY love fighting games! And DOA is one of my favorite ^_^
So beautiful, melodic, with a touch of VENGEANCE!
In DOA Kasumi is my best character, but Helena is a close second. I love her themes! I'm playing DOA 4 tonight before the Harry Potter 7 premiere!
MK, SF, Sonic, all def in my top 5.
Some good links to music in this thread.
My all time fav is the music for Lei-Lei's stage in Vampire Saviour. That music is awesome. I would get rather unhappy if I did not get to fight her when I played.
Now how to do a link ......
The eyes have it.
I now have to add there is other great music in Vampire Saviour. I've just listened to others and I'm reminded of how good the others are too. I so want to play it now. lol
The eyes have it.
A friend of mine sent this to me and I think it's pretty cool. Sounds like Sonic Colors has an epic final battle.
I guess he didn't like part 1 too much so I had to search for it and I think it's cool.

Don't know why I forgot about this stupendously funny song! I sing it to my friends at random whenever I'm on xbox live lol
I myself have a good appreciation for the music in video games. Post whatever you like, share your favorites
