Music in videogames. Now with extra piano!

Post  Hans on Mon Mar 29, 2010 3:55 am

It would be nice to hear some discussion on what people think about the music in videogames. Not just what songs they like from a videogame, but also some of the purpose and meaning that music adds to a game. Also, videos of some of the less familiar songs would be nice, hell, even for the really familiar ones, just because they're awesome.

Personally, I've always enjoyed the market theme from Majora's Mask because it's so upbeat and cheerful, but also has undertones of impending doom. Also, Pokey Means Business is epic, and if anyone can find me sheet music for it, I will +1 10 of their posts. Oh and, Endless Challenge from F-Zero X, that was awesome.

Final Fantasy X has one of the best soundtracks I've ever heard.

I've always been a big fan of the music from Zelda, specifically the music from Ocarina of Time (although not my favorite Zelda title, it does have, imo, the best music), but many many others as well.
I love this one, so much. This is one of the only piece of music from a game for which I can remember just hanging around in the level just to hear it (at like age 8, mind you), with no interest in even playing or anything.

Probably my favorite piece of Zelda music, truth be told. Then again, I think everyone loves this one.

Wind Waker, being my favorite Zelda game, also had a lot of choice music.
As fun and iconic as the regular Zelda theme is, I like this one a lot more. The melody on the flutes really matches the feel of the game, and it such a charming piece. The use of woodwinds enforces the rustic feel of life in the Wind Waker universe, specifically in the small town of Outset Island.
This is my favorite Boss theme. Wind Waker really knew how to use those woodwinds.

Twilight Princess had some good shit too.

This song felt so uncharacteristic of a Zelda game, but I think it's quirkiness is what made it so appealing to me. Also it's really catchy.
I might have to come back to this, I am not immediately familiar with much of the music from TP

Also, I LOVED the music in the Pokemon games. I am not much of a gen elitist, but Gold and Silver probably had most of my favorite music on it.

This might be my favorite town theme. Drops a nostalgia bomb on me every time.

I also love this one, from Gen 4. It's so jazzy and upbeat.

This is far from all of it, though, I might come back with some of my favorite music from Mario and others.

Man, I sure love scrolling down past a huge collusion of youtubes. It's especially great when someone posts the exact same fucking song in response to a song saying they like it. That way, there is even more distance for me to have to clear.

This is why we can't have nice things.

Also, I liked the Fire Emblem Theme (Aka Together We Ride) and Hyrule Temple theme both from the Temple stage on Super Smash Bros. Melee that I got sheets music for and learned how to play on piano. The Fire Emblem one someone else sent me while the Hyrule one I threw together myself. If I ever decided to brush up on those I may whore myself out for attention again.

Good reason behind that. He put the videos in a quote, and everytime I tried clicking to hear it, the quote would dissapear. I wanted to hear, so I reposted in frustration. Noticing that the post was useless, I added in some commentary to make it less useless. So get off my back K thx Bai

If you are running firefox, you can just right click the video and select "watch on youtube." If not, you can just click the title that appears on the top when you scroll over. However, to make things even easier, I'll just turn it into links.

EDIT: You know what, I'll just calm the fuck down. Columns it is.

Nay, NAY I say. Leave it as is, well all chill.

Also, is video game related music relevant?

This might not be up everyone's alley. Rap isn't for everyone.

Ima tell you right now Surge. I hate rap, and even THAT is better than the shit professionals make. Normally from what I hear is just a swear word every other word. Just a bunch of trash IMO.

But that video was, weird, epic, cheesy all in a package!

Ok, Viero, why'd you repost the same thing?

Also, I used to have the same Poke'dex thing they had in the video. It was AMAZING.
