Thread: Favorite Game Music TRACKS (blast from the past?)

    In researching the various video game music releases made last year, I stumbled upon something released years and years ago: a track that was on a Squaresoft café themed bonus CD that features a band playing FF6's 'Aria di Mezzo Caraterre' with acoustic instruments. Yes, I know we've heard the original song a trillion times, all billion versions of it, and this is the millionth mention of FF6, but well. Never mind all that. Just listen to this.

    Ok ok ok, tracks of the year, so far.

    I'm making a playlist of my faves of 2019, let me know if I've missed anything.





    and themesong of the year, hands down...



    What these games have in common besides their cool soundtracks is that they're... uh, not very good. At least KZ and Pikuniku never really grabbed me. Art Sqool is in the latest Humble Bundle but I haven't heard great things.

    While I can't look for videos right now, I greatly enjoyed the music both in Outer Wilds and Disco Elysium. Both have relatively untypical musical styles that reinforce the themes and tone of the two games, even if the number of different tunes is relatively small in both cases.

    Hah, that Katana Zero track is something I only know from this.

    Technically a rearrange, but it is excellent enough to be here.

    Often the best music I keep finding is featured in games i either haven't played or in ones which are bad in terms of the actual gameplay, but here's a stellar exception: Ridge Racer Type 4

    (Hard to point a single favourite track, but if i had to do it, i think Pearl Blue Soul could be it)

    For the longest fucking time (which is exactly 20 years and some change) I have wondered why one of the best pieces of video game music ever made wasn't being obsessively covered and rearranged by people across the planet. No, I'm not talking about the Katamari Damacy theme song, though that would also be an excellent question.

    I'm talking about Wings from Xenogears. It's the most triumphant ode to air and flight ever written. Turns out, there's an easy answer why: because everyone was waiting for Mitsuda to get an orchestra and some stoner kids on guitars to make a version that can't ever be surpassed, to make it a thing of soaring, exuberant, weep-for-joy fulfillment during the game's 20th anniversary concert.

    If you don't feel anything when things take off at 2:15 (segueing from previous track Flight into Wings for you Xeno-OST nerds, if you exist) I hope you've written your will, because you're probably just a cold, unfeeling corpse.

    'Tis alright. I don't think I've ever been as excited as that guitarist, lol.

    Well, as long as you feel it's all right in your soul, I'm okay with that. I like the guitarist dude, though the squalls of feedback from his overenthusiastically fingerbanging the fretboard are thankfully lower in the mix in the 5.1 BD version.

    It's simply impossible not to listen to this at full volume, it's too good!

    Also from games I personally played, Rayman 2, MediEvil/MediEvil 2 and Stunt GP had nice OSTs, though these are completely different styles, nowhere near as much bangers as this one

    Like I was ever going to let this thread die. Here's someone ginger doing a gorgeous thing from Ori.



    (yes, she did a Hollow Knight track as well. Find it for yourself!)

    If I posted Megalovania, would that be a ban or just a warning?

    You know what, screw self-restraint, here's TWO HOURS OF FOX.



    (Toby Fox. Also, the name of a film I was almost in.)

    (The Ori music was nice too.)

    Undertale had a pretty good OST, so there's no need for restraint. Megalovania's great! Maybe I'll reach the portion of the game at some point where it plays, and then feel differently. Until that point I'll just file it along with the rest of themes in my battle music playlist.
