What do you guys think is the best soundtrack from a video game whether it be rpg, action etc.

or what anime has had the best songs??




my favorite would have to be any DBZ Budokai game(not tenkaichi)
and the rest would be final fantasy 5,6,8,10, and maybe 12

I wouldn't say best, but...Guilty Gear - The Midnight Carnival OST was bloody awesome.

Rockers making a soundtrack for a fighting game that looks absolutely flawless? Double win right there

I personally love every song on that OST

I also play the guitar, so I guess that also pays its respects as well...

The .hack//G.U. soundtrack is awesome.

My personal favorite soundtrack would be Tales of Legendia's, it has some really awesome music.

Xenogears is pretty good, and in particular I like the one that's just a synth harpsichord.

I'm very fond of Kingdom Hearts (I and II) and Final Fantasy OSTs (VII, VIII, X, X-2 and XII) but also love ICO's 'heal'. Anime would be most Naruto, especially Shipuuden, and Full Metal Alchemist. The one track I adore from Bleach I can't find - sigh!

Guilty Gear (any) heavy guitars + killing + scantly clad girls= WIN!

Final Fantasy (the series from 1-10) also has a really good soundtrack, if you guys want to hear the battle themes turned into prog-rock try looking for Black Mages, it's Nobuo Uematsu's band.

Baten Kaitos had really good music, especially the battle scenes, battle scene music for BK would beat Final Fantasy anyday. Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance also had a pretty good soundtrack.

Your favourite game music, whether it be from the PS3 or the GameBoy Colour, or from the 2000s or the 1970s.

Some of my favourite is from Baten Kaitos, absoutely loved the fight music. Final Fantasy is a favourite as well, especially from FFX.

Now discuss away!

I'd very well say there're bunches of great songs from Chrono Cross - such as Lost Fragments, Radical Dreamers, and all those acoustics in each scene. I really like the one at Another World's Arni Village, it sounded so peacefully good.

Until this day I've never played FFX (I don't own any other new PS than PS1... and THAT one was also broken... !) Only heard of Suteki Da Ne -- and concluded I liked FF9's Bittersweet Romance, Rose of May and Dissipating Sorrow better. Haha. :]

My favourites are parts of the soundtrack from Final Fantasy III (especially since they were redone for the DS) and Final Fantasy V (played the Gameboy Advance version.) I like listening to most of the series' music, even though I haven't played quite a lot of the games. (I prefer handheld consoles.)

Has anyone heard of The Black Mages? They're a band (involving Nobuo Uematsu) who do rock covers of FF songs. Fun.

Final Fantasy VI <3
Every soundtrack from the FF series is great, though. Aeris' theme, Waltz for the moon, the Balamb Garden theme, the FF7 world theme, FF IV battle song, every battle theme from FFT (and that wonderful opening)....but nothing beats the wonderful Aria Di Mezzo Carattere from FFVI (the opera song)...:~) The characters' themes from FF6 are also spetacular. I won't ever forget Terra's theme.

I'm listening to the Phoenix Wright orchestra soundrack now, it's very good. Very catchy songs ^^

I love the Xenogears soundtrack and the Lunar series also.

(The Guitar Hero soundtracks doesn't count as videogame music ne? xD)

But the best one is the Super Mario Bros theme, no arguing! >D

edit: How could I forget? GUILTY GEAR! Fuuga > all! xD

Noice thread. Very noice. :pleased

Well, first and foremost RPG music will always be my number one. Namely, Nobuo Uematsu of course, the man is a genius and has indirectly gotten me through a lot of troubled, stressful times with this serene, beautiful music, to say the very least. My favorite score out of all the Final Fantasy games has to be VIII. Blue Fields, Lunatic Pandora, Balamb Garden, among others are my favorites. Blue Fields will put me to sleep like a baby, it's so calming and will no doubt calm me down from anything. Runner ups are VI, VII, and X. Other than the FF series, I really love the Chrono series music. A few others series favorites are Legend of Legia, Legend of Dragoon, Baten Kaitos, Golden Sun, Breath of Fire, and Xeno-series. I'm sure there's others I'm forgetting, but those stick out the most.

Now there is one series that gets it's own category, just because it's that amazing. The Legend of Zelda of course! Koji Kondo captivates with the mythical music of this series in ways that are only rivaled by Uematsu's work. From the Hyrulean triumph to the serene sounds of Lake Hylia, all tracks are no doubt classics. I truly cannot remember hearing a Zelda game that didn't completely blow me away with its score. The one game that stands out for me, however, is The Wind Waker. It's so upbeat and wild yet has those mystical and passive tracks as well, it's the perfect blend for any fantasy fan.

Next up is Metal Gear. While the score isn't as captivating to listen to as Final Fantasy or The Legend of Zelda, it has its own special....something that adds to it. Which is why I love it so much, I can't put my finger on what makes it so special, but every time I hear the Metal Gear Solid 3 theme, or the espionage wonders of the Tanker in Metal Gear Solid 2, it brings back some great memories and keeps me on the edge of my seat as I play. It's also nice to listen to as background music. The slow and jazz-like tones play it nicely if one decicdes to kick back to the OST. Other tunes are clearly more jazz oriented than others, but they all still have a general tone which makes listening to the OST an experience, it helps to keep it consistent.

Well, that's about it. I have other favorites but I'm a bit tired right now. So I'll save it for another post another day. :amuse :)

For me:
1) the MGS series, the songs from games are simply amazing.....each song gets you into the specific game section/scene whether it is sad, action or happy......

2) the Resident Evil series, by far my favorite in all games.......each song is just suitable for the situation it is played.....and it is very very hard to forget them.

3) also the Silent Hill series too......just great:D

XENOSAGA <3 Communication Breakdown is teh fucking rocks <3 http://youtube.com/watch?v=ufIFbvMtMTo Some of the most gorgeous music I have ever head in my life

Anything FF, for the most part. One Winged Angel <3 Suteki da ne <3 To Zanarkand <3 anything else <3

In also truly enjoyed the Kingdom Hearts soundtrack. Not just for Utadu Hikaru, but the composition of the base soundtrack was both stirring and pretty much just effing awesome, in both I and II.

Can't believe you guys didn't mention the Mother series; I love the music in there. Legend of Zelda series music is also pretty cool. On the flip side, there's a large variety of music in GTA. Kingdom Hearts music was also pretty nice.

Favorite Video game Music ...
hmm

1.Final Fantasy Music is one of the best put together music in video games that i listened to , for example One Winged Angel (FFVII) and (RandomDancing Mad (FFVI) were nice put together music and the songs in the games arent too bad (the ones in FFIX and FFX i dont know the song names).

2.) Kingdom Hearts Music was nice, as others had said Utada Hikaru is a great singer and some music were quite interesting to listen to...

3.) Legend of Zelda had a pretty good Sound track, especially in the last ten years of the series.

and there were some other video games that had a good soundtrack (Super Smash Bros Brawl? lol)

I don't really remember the music that much from the Lunar series... all that I remember is how bloody awesome the games were. Vastly underrated. especially the Sega CD versions, they were by far two of the greatest RPG's ever made.

As for my favorite game music... Of course anything Final Fantasy. Thats pretty much a no brainer. However, I would have to say that I'm pretty partial towards any classic NES game. Some of it probably has to do with the nostalgic feeling one gets when they hear the tunes as they tend take one back to "the simpler" times of when one was a kid. But mostly because they were so simple. Whether it be Super Mario Bros, Zelda, Contra, Castlevania, Metroid etc. the list just goes on an on. The music stays in your head. Who now can't hum or imagine the music to lets say Super Mario Bros?... No one, and just that speaks for the brilliance of it

Speaking of Castlevania... Not only does it remind me that I have to go buy a DS so that I can play Order of Ecclesia but I can't forget about SOTN(Symphony of the Night). By far one of the greatest composed scores for a video game ever. The classical style music fit the story so perfectly. I don't really know what else to say about it other then its brilliant.

I love OSTs - games, movies, it doesn't matter.

My favourite game OSTs are Final Fantasy VII, VII CC, VIII, X, X-2, XII, Kingdom Hearts, ICO and some from Twilight of the Spirits. I love the piano versions of many of the FF songs as well as the original piano pieces and I love that I can play one of them :amuse

I'm rather fond of remixes as well - OverClocked being the best.

I absolutely adore the music in Xenosaga 2 and 3 because Yuki Kajiura is love and that is some of her best work. My other favorite music in a video game is Tales of Legendia, that music was incredibly awesome; I went out and bought the soundtrack not too long after. I need to look that composer back up and see if they've done anything new.

I have quite a few that I like. We all know big titles like One-Winged Angel or Liberi Fatali but I want to take a crack at a few themes many may not have heard. This isn't a real top ten, just some great pieces that stand out to me.

1) The entire soundtrack to Final Fantasy Tactics (http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=final+fantasy+tactics+theme&aq=f) was pure bliss.

2) I also enjoyed the battle theme from Xenosaga Episode One (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9_NKJNo7nx8). It gets a little repetitive but you fall in love at 40 seconds.

3) Dead Fingers Talk (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f1EFHMwKdkY)from Shadow Hearts. The chanting and overtures in this piece are just great!

4) Devil's Never Cry (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GZUN89RaP60)

5) Although the official title is Vergil Battle 2, I like my title better. I call this piece Motivation (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zpJj5xY1m5A).

6) Capcom doesn't really inspire anyone with these names so here is Vergil Battle 3 or as I call, Scion of Power (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2XbEWS5t7q4).

7) The Bombing Run (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S8NGDsnv34M&feature=related)from Final Fantasy VII brought RPGs into a brand new school of badass.

8) Lost Painting (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I7EZsYRWuAs)from Castlevania: SotN.

9) I Am the Wind from Castelvania: SotN (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eLsgLtTd4Go). I tear up every time I hear this.

10) Silent Melody (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mgXdsl7fBSI)from inFAMOUS is one of those rare pieces that comes along that kicks the crap out of any theme used for any main character anywhere. This is epic story-telling! EPIC!

Well if you ask me my favorite gaming soundtracks have so far come from Devil May Crys,The Elder Scrolls,Nyre and the last but not least Assasins Creed. All of the last three Elder Scrolls,Nyre,Assasins Creed have this action packed music which gets your heart beating along with making this nostalgic and epic feeling really fitting for the movie kind of games they are and such along with that Elder Scrolls music is so mysterious,beatiful,epic along with Nyre.Assasins Creed adds always a beatiful main theme into it which gets you all soft and emotional but as for the action parts it gets you feel the thrill and the excitement of the chase.Devil May Cry has this great metal type of music fused with eletronic effects really getting you to rip it all of and get yourself go WILD.And what wouldnt be the best moment to go crazy and reckles than to kill few demons playing as epic character as Dante is?

I'm not going to be very original. When I think to music in video games, I think to final fantasy.

Final fantasy X-2: a 1000 words. Ok, the game wasn't that good for many but this cinematic http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OKlQ9_7A-Hc is still awesome. The end of Final Fantasy 8 with "eyes on me" is also worth mentionning (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1-_Did76LXQ).

Also from the ff series: the "terra's theme" from FF6 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W7RPY-oiDAQ) & "you're not alone" from FF9 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sx_Qqzs4cfk).

From other games: the whole game music from Metal gear solid (1 to 4) is extremely good.

And here I was thinking of posting some FF musics...
Screw originality, FF musics are beyond what a lot of other games can offer.

"You're not alone" is what made the best moment in FFIX for me. Not changing this song while in battle was a perfect choice.

Here are some that hold a special place in my heart :

- Celes's Theme (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WoBn04lcNmo). Just listen ot it...

- Searching for friends (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lx-BhyAkDdY). Surely one of the best overworld themes ever made. Catches the epic feeling of "let's go on a travel !" and succeds in not being far too below Terra's theme.

- Rose of May (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oxZlJGtFGcw). Somehow FFIX managed to have an OST nearly as good as FFVI's.

- Another piecemaster from Uematsu is FFIV's Battle theme (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2c0ri2SLXSk). It definitely defines what good music is : inspiring melodies that are easy to remember. More than the intensity of battle, this one is also somewhat "sad" for me.

Starcraft 1! Big times. Especially the Terran soundtrack (each race has it's own soundtrack: Terran, Zerg, Protoss) is really famous even for beeing one of the coolest soundtracks ever.

Yeah, Starcraft 1 was epic! Good old times, I always played Blizzards games like Diablo, SC and WC.


I would probably go with the Gothic series and The Witcher here...I just love the medieval, epic feeling of such songs

Same here, the Gothic series and its music is definitely one of my absolute favorites.


...Edit: Oh, and Minecraft's C418 is pretty much a genius.

I absolutely agree with you about C418, Minecrafts music is so relaxing and epic, inspiring you to explore the world.


Nobody said anything about the Touhou series?

It's a shame, isn't it?:p

Here are some of my favorite touhou themes:
Toyosatomimi no Miko's Theme - True Administrator (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G-fwqd2jG84&feature=watch_response_rev)
Yuyuko's Theme - Bloom Nobly, Cherry Blossoms of Sumizome (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zis2TtxdFjQ)
Yukari's Theme - Necrofantasia (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=195XntreoMc&feature=related)
Touhou 10, Stage 2 Theme - The Road of the Apotropaic God ~ Dark Road (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vCTBOHhjNWg&feature=related)
Kanako's Theme - The Venerable Ancient Battlefield ~ Suwa Foughten Field (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zh0D2EZrETo&feature=related)

But to be honest, I like almost EVERY theme in the entire series.

----------------------------

To include some of my own favs:
More or less FFX's entire soundtrack, but especially
-A Fleeting Dream (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zkAFi88J5Aw) (because it never stops, even in battle, and suits the mood so extremely well)
-To Zanarkand (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h-0G_FI61a8).:wtf
But I also like FF soundtracks in general.

Oh man, favorite video game music? That's a hard one. There are so many games with awesome music. I'll just list a bunch.... Pretty much any Zelda game (Personal favorites are Wind Waker, and Spirit Tracks), Persona 3, and 4 had very epic music, Okami has beautiful music, then there's the .hack//G.U. series with it's wide variety of music, and while not well known, I kinda like the music from the Rune Factory series as well. Harvest Moon also has some notable songs.... fsfkjkf;djdkl;a Too, much, awesome, music.

EDIT: I forgot the Tales series too. ^_^;

Anything in the Square Enix games, especially Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts. Love the compositions for the instrumental theme songs, they're absolutely beautifully created and really melt the heart; well, that's for the subtle and depressing sounding ones XD Regardless, the musical stylings for those games are lovely to listen to on a daily basis (:

I love a great deal of video game OSTs, but my top favorites would have to be the Kingdom Hearts series (as a whole) and Persona 4. Both of them have amazing combat tracks as well as several neat ambient ones.

They're followed by Aquaria (which has so many great mellow and soothing atmospheric songs) and the Mass Effect series, which has everything from absolutely epic to subtly ambient as well as eerie.

Holy crap, I hadn't noticed this thread. Gonna make it my own, if that doesn't bother anyone :cookiehand

Like 30 % of the music I have in my pc has appeared in a game (that including games like FIFA, PES, SSX, Tony Hawk, GTA, you know...) and I have to say that some of my favs come there, and I have playlists just for games. Without naming "usual songs" that appear in videogames ( just We Will Rock You, Winning Eleven 6, was my fav song for years).

Now let's start with the OST stuff:

This one is from Shadow of the Collosus, I find myself humming it now and then, without even noticing it:


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9kL2oDdXsdM

Another song that I usually hum... kinda obvious for this thread but wtv:


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

Aaaaaand another one that I hum, my fav from the Zelda franchise (no, it's not the song of Healing)


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KrB9kR81mI8

From barely known game that I love:

This is the best song ever, I swear :oh

From my favourite franchise ever:


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6miaTf1gF4g

Right before the Final Boss Battle in Yakuza 3 where I'm inside the Millenium Tower trying to get rid numbers of Yakuza underlings, there was this epic instrumental playing. I haven't found the exact title of it but holysheet it was awesome.

Also, Metal Slug series' OSTs. \m/ ♥
