DID YOU THINK IT WAS AWESOME

POST IT HERE!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uAMi60zoSfI&feature=related

and a more classic one from thine original

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dAmDY8Gt9JI

it's weird to think that these are samples from 1994. anyone who played the games remembers the music because it was fit right to the mood of the level and was crazy advanced and different

Oh, there's too many to mention.

Um.

To start out with, Simon's theme from Castlevania 4. The first song you hear in the game and it's amazing.

B.O.B. to the SNES, this game had a really great mix of funk and pop. Space City.

I'd say without lying too much, the entire soundtrack from Lufia 2: Rise of the Sinistrals. Some samples: 1 2 3 4

The intro music to Wild Arms to the PS1.

Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver 2 has probably one of the best soundtracks in a PS2 game. The main menu theme and of course Ozar Midrashim. Brilliant.

Too much awesome music to name, really, but those are some that stands out. Seriously gonna have to make a list.

Deux Ex...ah brings back good memories.

Also, Homeworld's rendition of Adagio for Strings is absolutely beautiful.

The first thing that comes to mind is the Intro to Kingdom Hearts, the first one. It was super catchy and coupled with the tripy dream, I was hooked. Which was good because the first few levels were booooring.

I don't know if these count since its not TECHNICALLY a real video game just a video-game themed/styled webcomic. But I love a lot of the tunes on Homestuck's MS Paint Adventures. In particular the newest Alternia Bound album. These are all pretty good.

Rex Duodecim Angelus
Blackest Heart
Karkat's Theme
Terezi's Theme
Vriska's Theme
She's a Sp8der
Killed by BR8K Spider

You can find the rest of the album here

Also like these others

Hardlyquin from Homestuck Vol.4 <---- this one is seriously creepy.
Carless Victory same album.
Harleboss from Homestuck Vol.3
Beatdown Strider Style same album
Harlequin (Rock Version) from Homestuck Vol.2 (But I prefer Harleboss since they're all just remixes of the same song)
Upward Movement same album
Explore same album
Showtime (Piano Refrain)from Homestuck Vol.1
Harlequin same album <--- This was the original song and the most videogame-esque. Still love it.
Sburban Jungle same album
and finally Skies of Skaia same album

Sorry to spam you all with all of those but there are just so many I love. You've probably heard them all before anyway so feel free to ignore this post. I'll see if I can find any uploads of any REAL videogame songs if I post again.

Back in the early nineties my friend Dob had a bunch of games all on one disc, freeware or whatever I guess, back on the old Amiga 500. One game featured Quasimodo, and the theme tune was hella catchy - it's lyric simply ran 'Quasimodo is a nice man, ...' ad infinitum. Anyone know it? Can't find it on youtubes.

So instead I'll leave the classic here:

Simple & Clean, by Utada Hikaru - for those who are curious.




Also Frosty Delight is my favorite megaman song!

And HERE is my favorite remix of said song!

I've never really been a console gamer, always been pc games for me and since my income has always been relatively low my heyday for getting games was the 'Shareware' era of the 80s and 90s hence most of my gaming experience relates to games of this era.

One game I quite enjoyed and had a good soundtrack was Vinyl Goddess from Mars I can't find any clean-cut links to actual songs sadly but there are a couple of videos of gameplay that show some of the music.

And of course Jazz Jackrabbit 2 had some pretty good level tunes for a platform game at the time.

Burning Biscuits
Tube Electric
Jungle Fevah
Hippie Heaven <--- My fave

I'll think of more later I'm sure

Never a real gamer, but I enjoyed the heck out of all the Lemmings tunes

Played Donkey Kong 2 non stop for years, and this level in particular over and over and over and over again, just for the music.
