Is there any good ones? I mean REALLY good ones?
I played it about a year ago and the game was so dated :(
was amazing at the time but I'm still not sure it holds up. I must give it another chance.
mario. di didi di, do do do di do di do do do di di di deee didi di do ding ding.
Cybernoid II (C64)
Wing Commander (original PC version)
Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis
X-Wing (the in-game bits with iMuse running)
had many classics.
the music is not good...
sounds like "how much is that doggy in the window?" :(
of cheesy midi!
my version of lemmings has a two player mode, though. it's BRUTAL :D
Yup. It's why I could never take that song seriously :D
was the point at which video gaming midi sound tracks peaked.
and I might just use that as a song title.
that you wrote that comment just by the headline?!
was the music in the windmill played by some madman with an accordian.
song at the start of Sonic CD.
"Goal Scoring Superstar Hero!!!" From Sensible World of Soccer.
C64 chip music
Rob Hubbard, Tim Follin etc.
only cos it makes me feel like starting wars against the gauls.
FF is a bit twee isn't it?
The old games tried hard, maybe because the graphics were so bad.
GTA - um yeah that has an incredible amount of detail in the radio stations. I love listening to James Brown when I'm riding around in san andreas.
reminds me of the days of bomber jackets, oversized jeans and 'curtains'. Painful!
a Spliffy Jacket so I never really fitted in..
but those early 16-bit years were pretty great
in one of it's many incarnations. There must have been about 50 in all?
It reminds me of staying in playing Sonic while everyone else went out in bomber jackets and curtains.
Also: Final Fantasy 7 and Wipeout 2097
Super Mario World
Carmageddon 2 (has the same 4 Iron Maiden songs on repeat :P)
and Rolling Thunder 2 off the megadrive had amazing music
one of the band The Siegfried Sassoon is amazing at old sonic tunes on piano!
is currently being touted as nu rave isn't it :D AND the clothing seems to be returning not to mention technicolour!
From StreetFighter 2.
Four disc soundtrack box set thing? YA RLY.
god i love skate rock and token rap
OMG. The first and second anyway.
Also: HITMAN 2.
if anyone says Final Fantasy or Tony Hawks 2, we should stab them.
is entirely responsible for getting me into music.
I used to turn it off. I was already listening to the musical prime of that time when it was out. See The Strokes and the White Stripes for more information.
'LIGHTS OUT. GUERILLA RADIO! TURN THAT CRAP DOWN'
since The Strokes didn't release their first album until the summer after Tony Hawks 2 came out...
I suppose I should rephrase that: it got me into Lagwagon, which in turn got me into all of the other random punk rock stuff I listen to, everything else quickly branched off from there. The stuff I liked before that doesn't bear thinking about.
I used to play it when I was about 11 as I remember. Year 6/7.
I had it on Megadrive. There was no singing on mine. That singing is horrid.
such a GREAT game. Wish I could play it right now in fact.
I hum the "main field" music.
Bum bum bah buuum da-da-da-da-da-daaaaaa da da da d a daaaaa dadadadada
the slightly sinister music in the first dungeon that goes "dee dee doo doo dee dee... dee dee doo doo dee dee." I sing that in my head when cycling through scary bits of London.
Final fantasy 7->9
the N64 zeldas
Megaman 1->8 on NES
Cheesy 80's pop and post-punk in Vice City, and alt. rock for San Andreas. Brilliant.
that out later.
But the morrowind music?? Good LORD, man, I never, ever want to hear that theme again. I'll be forever expecting to hear it change to the battle music, accompanied by the dulcet tones of a cliff racer descending awkwardly from above.
soundtrack for Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory is seriously good stuff. Honest, chap.
There's also a sweet sweet discful of songs from the Chrono Trigger soundtrack; all done in prog-rocky and lounge-jazzy weirdness. It's amazing.
There's also The Black Mages; the Final Fantasy composer-dude's metal band which covers all the famous themes. Bit rubbish though.
I already liked Amon Tobin before I got Splinter Cell, but there's something about creeping around in the dark, stabbing people while slinky fretless basslines swirl around you that really rubs me up the right way.
I've got that Black Mages thing too. Most of it was gash, but the versions of the Jenova and battle music from FF7 is excellent. There's also a version of the One Winged Angel floating about somewhere that was pretty cool, too.
that even listening to the Tobin CD without having played the game, you can appreciate how the game 'layers' the sounds the more exciting things get. It's massively atmospheric!
Aye, the Black Mages CD deserves a look because of the Awesome Use of Rock Organ on the FF7 boss battle music. Also, don't they do an epic 10 minute version of the ace neoclassical piece that accompanies the final boss of FF6? To this day, I cannot believe that music was written for a video game.
the music is half of why I love the game.
Also GTA for 'A Horse With No Name', Lazlow and K-JAH.
had a soundtrack by michael nyman. It's creepy as hell.
