    Yeah, I wanted to post a silly poll-type topic. Figured this one would be better than "Who has the cutest avatar?" (I vote Triple Lei.)

    I'm sure I can't be the only person here who is really into game music. I've managed to amass a fairly sizable VGM CD collection over the past few years that I'm quite happy with. (Although it's nothing compared to my friend Xanadujin, who has something like $2000+ worth of Japanese VGM CDs)
    Anyways, out of the albums I own, I can say my favorites are all of the Virtual On soundtracks (VOOM, VOOT, and Force), Seiken Densetsu (Secret of Mana) 2 and 3, Valkyrie Profile, and Sonic Adventure 1 & 2.
    Recently I made a CD-R of the Radiant Silvergun soundtrack, which is awesome as well. I wish I could get the original CD for that, but it's insanely rare and in very high demand since the composer has become quite popular. (Maybe I should try to get the actual GAME first.)
    I wish there was more music available for old-school stuff, too. Lots of old Konami 16-bit games had killer music that was never released in album form. Even classic 8-bit stuff shouldn't be overlooked... the Megaman games do some incredible stuff with the crappy little NES sound chip.
    Any other opinions?

    Heheh, this thread always pops up on every board. Anyway, here are some of my favorites:

    Shenmue I+II, JSR, JSRF, Chrono Trigger, Suikoden I+II, Castlevania series (especially Dracula X RoB), MegaMan 1-3, Panzer Dragoon, FF4&6, Goemon series, Ys I+II.

    Of course there's more but I think these are the major ones. I really dig them old Rockman tunes too, my favorite being Snake Man's theme.

    Favorite soundtrack of all time has to be Lunar 1 on the SegaCD. The dragon's dungeon music was the most inspirational music EVER. LoL The whole soundtrack was just brilliant

    Chrono Trigger's music was excellent as well, along with Phantasy Star 4.

    Celes' Opera theme music was classic on Final Fantasy 3(US).

    hmmm never heard of panzer dragoon's music for a long time. It's one of the games with better music in Saturn hehe.

    Hehe too many to name:

    Soul Edge/Blade, Tekken 2, Every Megaman game I've played, Castlevania 3, Medal of Honor (PC), Street Fighter 2, Actraiser.

    I also liked the soundtrack for Giga Wing 2. I was pretty surprised actually. I suggest you check it out if you have a DC.

    Peace,

    If you can count PC stuff as videogames, I love the OMF 2097, Tyrian, Jazz Jackrabbit, and Total Annihilation soundtracks. VF2 isn't exactly good, but it sure does stay in your head /versus/images/icons/tongue.gif

    Panzer Dragoon had awesome music...
    to be honest, however, there is not a lot of video game music I would listen to on its own merit.
