Music Video Game Soundtracks
I searched for this topic because I swear someone had posted it, but I couldn't find any results. Anyways, if the thread is just buried, I'm reviving it. If it's non-existent, I am a genius little shit.

Here are just a couple of my favorites from some games I like:

RE: Video Game Soundtracks
Too much without spoilers, so here we go

*Watch out, Metal Gear fanboyism incoming!*















And finally, a song I will have at my funeral:



*end of Metal Gear fanboyism*

Nintendo and it's third company games


































Rome: Total War (for Earmuffs)



















And finally, possibly the most badass battle theme ever made:




That's all I can think of now, more to come later.

RE: Video Game Soundtracks
The single greatest video game song ever.



And now a tribute by a really cool artist.




A haunting rendition of an epic song




Another Classic



The Love Letter to the lost art of turn based JRPG's




One of the funniest songs from Fallout 3 (one of the best soundtracks in all of video games)




Another Great old school series.



And how can we have a list of Video Game music without the all time king of 8-bit, Nintendo's Mascot and the Game that singlehandedly brought back the Video GAme industry from the brink of extinction.

How about you use fucking spoilers like the others, Ferdinand? Dodgy

It takes a fuckload of time for the site to load with all those videos out in the open.

RE: Video Game Soundtracks
Here are a few classic chill tracks. I actually learned to play all three on piano because I enjoy them so much.

This is my favorite to play on piano






This one is soooo smooth. DAT BASS Track Smile
And that flute at 2:28 ... puts me in my happy place






This is a remake of the original, but it just gives me the nostalgia chills and makes me wanna cry... But happy tears.

Roar of the Earth.
The Shadow of the Colossus OST.

Listen to all of it. It is worth it.

For a taste, have the following selection:

Prologue




A Violent Encounter




Revived Power




Demise of The Ritual




Hope

RE: Video Game Soundtracks
Halo - Original Main Theme

Easily one of the most iconic themes to emerge from the post-16 bit era. This nails everything that makes John William's music memorable and sweeping, and that is a strong grasp on the central melody; you can hum this entire theme by yourself.








The Elder Scrolls - Main Themes, III through V

My personal favorite is the Skyrim theme, because it also includes a bit of the Morrowind theme as well. Jeremy Soule composed all three and does marvelous work. Bethesda know how to nail great ambient music, that's for sure.







Metroid - Theme of Samus Aran, Brinstar 1 & 2

It's freakin' Metroid. These tunes originate from the 16-bit ear, and are thus eminently catchy with a simple melody. Once you flesh out that core with an orchestra, you get something great without losing what made the original tune so special.







Chrono Trigger - Main Theme

Another beautiful throwback from the 16-bit era, this time composed by Squaresoft mainstay Nobuo Uematsu (Final Fantasy), updated with an orchestral composition. Once again another great theme that you can simply hum the main melody line to, and thus it sticks in your head rather easily.








Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Icarus Theme

Deus Ex is amazing, and this was the haunting music used for one of the trailers. Set in a dystopian near future, this theme blends the Cyberpunk and Victorian aesthetic that made Human Revolution so visually unique and engaging.








Mass Effect 3 - Leaving Earth

For me, this is one of the most haunting and powerful themes from Mass Effect, especially when used in the game's context. So I've included both the OST and the actual scene in game to give you the needed context if you choose. Still gives me chills running up my spine every time.











Civilization 4 - Baba Yetu (Main Theme)

I just wanted to end on an upbeat after DXHR and ME3 being real downers, enjoy. Also this was the first video game piece to ever win a Grammy award, for "Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocalist(s)". Performed by the Grammy-winning Soweto Gospel Choir with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
