I'm not sure whether this would be part of the "video game only thread", but yeah.

What do you guys think of video game music?

I'd have to say, video game music hasn't gotten really "complicated" these days, I mean, compared to the Midi sort of days of Super Mario Bros.

I found songs from video games are really easy to get "into", since the idea of the music in games is to create some sort of feeling.


I get the feeling lots of people regard music from video games as not really music per se. Most people will probably think of Super Mario, which is cool, everyone loves a bit of Mario.

the music played on the last race of a championship in Race Driver GRID is like tension music. Makes you want to drive faster. Kind of music you find in fast paced action films. I love it. And yeah. HALO 2 THEME BY STEVE VAI!!! It was a good song to start with but it jus got made loads better.

The Metal Gear themes are normally pretty epic, haven't heard number 4 yet. The Half Life 2 series have got some awesome themes in them as well. And the theme music for Team Fortress 2 is brilliant.

Video game music is too much overlooked imho, but there is some amazing stuff written for games. My all-time favourite soundtracks:
Tomb Raider: Anniversary (main theme)
Tomb Raider: Legend (main theme)
Civilization IV (Baba Yetu)
Aladdin (all tracks)
Sonic (first two zones)
Minnesota Fats: Pool Legend (all tracks)

Zelda - Ocarina of Time soundtrack is wonderful.

Thin necks make you play faster because guitars with thin necks sound thin and bad, and you play fast to distract people from the bad tone.
