Vidya Game Music

So I was playing F-Zero for the SNES today and I noticed that the music for that game is very good (despite my cartridge apparently being messed up. It seems like there are some layers in the 16 bit music that are missing but maybe my memory of it is just wrong). So, what video game musics does everyone like?

I'm so tired of partying.

    I just don't know if I can consider today's video game music as video game music. When I think of video game music, I think of an age where video games didn't have soundtracks like movies where a real orchestra is recorded. I think of 8 and 16 bit music with synthetic instruments and bleeps and bloops.

    Things gotta move forward.

    I can't get nostalgic about bleeps and bloops.

    I could do without licensed music, though.

    I was a big fan of the Zone of the Enders 2 soundtrack. Also Warcraft 2 and Starcraft. MGS2 and 3 also both have outstanding music.


    And the Tetris theme is my ringtone at the moment.

    Chrono Trigger had great music.

    I really like the weird electric theme to Metroid Prime, for some reason.

    Diablo and it's sequel had some excellent stuff attached to it.

    I enjoy listening to remixes of video game music quite a bit.

    Mario Strikers Charged has some very good musical bits in it.

    Crystal Chronicles had an awesome opening sequence, and the soundtrack was fantastic. Would've been nice if the actual game didn't suck.

    I really wish Nintendo would pony up to have a full orchestra play The Legend of Zela theme and put it in a game. Especially a Zelda game.

    Seriously, it would sound pretty great. Shit, just extend the big dramatic orchestra to the whole game.

    I was so pissed at Nintendo when they were making a DDR game and chose to go with all Mario bullshit. They have so many franchises to draw awesome music from, especially Zelda.

    except they generally don't branch Zelda out into other genres

    but they do it with Mario all the time

    I totally forgot Ducktales. The Moon music is one of the best songs ever put in a videogame on the NES.

    The ocean theme and end credits to Wind Waker are fantastic.

    As is the end credits theme to Double Dash (the jazz piano piece).

    Super Mario World, also,
