Looks like you're not alone in the wonderful enjoyment of vidja games music, eh? ;D Some games don't have very decent/memorable soundtracks, but. . .the ones that do are worth it. I've been seeing lots of love for Professor Layton, which makes me a happy man. Something I ain't seen mentioned yet is the Castle Crashers soundtrack, which is comical and epic at the same time. D: Absolutely love the music, and the game itself is even better. A must play, and it's even on both 360 and PS3, if I remember correctly. To a lesser extent, I also listen to things like the DKC2: Serious Monkey Business album, .hack//G.U. stuff, and almost any Legend of Zelda OST, notably OoT and Windwaker.

Heck yeah, they do. O_o I've been playing Imperishable Night for the past week or so. . .I'm terrible. Can't get past the fourth stage on Normal.

Just out of curiosity, who has been listening to the Pokemon B/W OST? The quality of music is obviously "better" than previous generations, but I can't decide if it's going to be as memorable or catchy as the others.

Shadow of the Colossus has one of the best game sound tracks I have EVER heard.

Okage had a good soundtrack, as I believe someone mentioned earlier.

My recommendation? The Ar Tonelico series. The game is centered around music, if that gives you any indication as to how mind-blowing some of the songs are, especially those with vocals. Definitely check them out!

Roughly 80% of my playlist is made up of soundtracks, so I listen to a lot of videogame music.

I'd say you're pretty set with any soundtrack from the Final Fantasy series. My personal favorites are tracks from X and XIII.
Go Shiina's soundtrack from Tales of Legendia is also very well done. Also, Xenogears/Xenosaga series has amazing music all around.

Let's see, I listen to the Legacy of Kain soundtracks (mostly Soul Reaver and Blood Omen 2), Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones and some songs from various games (Borderlands, Dead Rising 2, DMC).

I listen to music from:

Pokemon Mystery Dungeon
Pokemon Mystery Dungeon 2
Pokemon Heart Gold/Soul Silver
MapleStory

And I'm currently looking to get some music from other games. Anyone know of good video game music? (Or am I the only one who listens to it?)

edit - Not looking for it anymore, thanks everyone. But since this has turned into a discussion pretty much, carry on~



Yes! Say what you want about the grinding, but MapleStory music is really awesome!

I like music from loads of games, really. Route 120 from Pokemon R/S/E is pretty nice.

Ditto. What about MMZ series though? There's some awesome remixes of them on the 'net. :)

+ music from Final Fantasy IV & VI, Phoenix Wright series, and Professor Layton ^^

Not FFV? I can understand, but there's at least one or two good ones on there, right?

Point taken. :3 From memory there are a few good ones (I think I remember liking the town music a lot - 'Tenderness in the Air', I think it was called?) from V but as a whole soundtrack I still prefer IV/VI. :)

Chrono Cross OST is my fave game sound track along with FFVI

I think the Persona games have pretty wicked soundtracks as well~

Anything by Akira Yamaoka is like candy for my ears.

Silent Hill soundtracks are pure gold. Silent Hill 2 in particular. Give 'Theme of Laura' a listen if you get a chance.

I listen to so many video game soundtracks. ;///; I usually turn on the Final Fantasy Piano Collections when I want to go to sleep. Some of my favorite soundtracks are Paper Mario, Metroid Prime, Prof. Layton, Persona 3/4, Kingdom Hearts, Fragile, Super Mario Galaxy, pretty much every Zelda game... a game's soundtrack is one of the most important points for me, as weird as that is!

Any music written by Yoko Shimomura is pure genius. Also, Silent Hill is great, but I heard Akira Yamaoka retired last year and now we'll see what lies in the future.

I don't really listen to video game sountracks or music (unless i'm actually playing the game ofc), but I've always thought the music in spyro the dragon 1 & 2 was really awesome!

Fair enough. I like to believe the soundtracks are actually ranked in ascending order of greatness. (Maybe the games are, too.)
