This thread is for the discussion of everything that has to do with your favorite music from video games, which I personally believe to be heavily overlooked.

A few to share...

Here is a video of a ragtime pianist sight-reading Yoshi's Island theme, pure brilliant.

And another of the same musician playing and improvising around a famous classic Mario tune you'll recognize. He'd never heard the music before and played it perfectly.

I'm really into X3: Terran Conflict right now and when I went into this system, I was hooked on the music that played here, and apparently almost everyone who plays the game is too.

And of course, who can forget...

Chrono Cross has the best music of any video game I've ever played...
My God, it's full of stars!

The best music award is for Mario games, any of them. The sound tracks are just awsome. There are great arrangements to be played on classical guitar. I just love them so much im learning them one by one. Good practice to play with all your fingers}(right hand, picking hand)

I love the music in Super Mario World!

This song is one of my all time favorite game songs from my all time favorite game:

I tried to learn it on guitar.

Blindfolds aside I'd probably still close my eyes

And try to feel a trembling fetal life inside
that shotgun barrel that's about to make me bleed

Like an ulcer in the stomach of the beast

The guys who made the music were really great musicians!


I was planning to go on a Mario marathon this weekend on my SNES, but I can't find the darn thing >_<

I wish todays games had music as good as these games

The music in Halo 3 is pretty freaking epic.

So is the music to Oblivion.

There's some great game music, it's just not iconic like the bleeps and bloops of the SNES era.

Actually, Super Mario Galaxy had a bloody amazing soundtrack, so I'm wrong there

I didn't really find Halos all that good though

Video game music is great.

I've recently completed an orchestral arrangement of tunes from Megaman X. Hopefully it will make the audition and be performed by Boston's Video Game Orchestra. Check it out!

I died a little inside when I read that.

Meh, FPS' aren't for everybody.

But Halo 3 has a far better story/music/production than any movie I've seen in the past few years (Save a few... in case I forget something. Not likely.).

I love FPS's, I didn't find Halo anything special though. Half Life is much better IMO
