Favorite Videogame Music


Recommended Posts

I just thought I would start this thread because I was reminiscing about all those dandy video game songs that would permanently get stuck in my head. Here are a few games with great music that I can think of at the moment.

Megaman 2

Ultima 4 Quest of the Avatar

Castlevania 2 Simon's Quest

Various Mario Bros games

Final Fantasy IV, VI and VII

Metal Gear Solid

Vampire: The Masquerade, Redemption



Anyways there are definitely a bunch more, just have to think of some more names to throw out there. Ill think of some more and post them tomorrow or the next day most likely. How about you guys? What video and computer game music do you most remember? Post em here so we can all compare notes and see if we can jog eachother's memories!

Anything by Frank Klepacki, obviously!

Seconded :)

Lee Jackson did a good job on both Dune Nukem 3D and Rise of the Triad. The latter has a lot of nice tune that have a nostalgic feel to me :)

The soundtrack from Warcraft II is one of my favourites as well. Warcraft: Orcs and Humans is also good, but I did not like the one in Warcraft III as much.

Age of Empires and The Rise of Rome have nice music too.

Oh, and the soundtrack from Herzog Zwei (Sega) has a lot of great tunes with a nostalgic feel :)

I was just playing that recently. Sadly for whatever reason when saving random map game, the saves get corrupted or something, and I can't save games (when loading game crashes). Also some random crashes when playing. I have rise of rome patched.

Well there are only so many times you can post until you have to recycle old material, Andrew! yeesh  ;) And I kinda disagree, to me it just felt right going into the general section, but oh well.

Thanks, newt!


Frank Kelpacki was pretty cool, loved the Red Alert theme song.

Illusions of Gaia

The 7th Saga

Even though they are soundtracks, loved the choices of music in GTA Vice City, San Andreas, and GTA IV

I always loved the Atreides Mentat theme on Dune II

Metal Gear Solid does indeed have a great opening theme

Sim City 4

Dragon Age. Far and away the best music I can remember hearing in a game.

Though with my memory, that might not be saying very much. I also quite liked the Ordos themes from Emperor... Age of Wonders had some nifty ones too.
