The soundtrack of Final Fantasy VI will always have a special place in my heart. I've parted the veil of nostalgia and realised the gameplay isn't great by today's standards long since, but the music is one thing I can't be objective about. Picking out favorites to highlight is a chore, because I have about 20 favorites in there and there's like a piano, heavy metal, remastered and orchestral version of each. I eventually mastered Kefka's theme
on piano, so I guess that counts for something. And then there's the battle themes
. But most of all, Terra's theme
. Overdose on Childhood Nostalgia, every time. I'm gonna skip the rest of the FFs and Zelda and such for obviousness.Guile's theme
goes with everything, and the Street Fighter 4 soundtrack has some great
fighty music in general that I use a lot for mah action roleplaying.
Super Meat Boy actually has a super epic soundtrack once you give it a second listen
(slow burner, the last one).
Ar Tonelico (only played 2) is a series thematically about music, and it shows (or sounds, I guess?). So yeah, pretty good OST
and a nice change of pace
I played Xenoblade Chronicles recently. Had a few gem
in there as well.
No Persona without Poem for everyone's soul!
The Shin Megami Tensei 3: Nocturne game had a few gems as well
(kicks it at 0:15), and I think I like that soundtrack better. Less engrish j-pop, more electronic rock goodness.
Ah, the Battlefield Theme
. Who here plays Battlefield, and can look me straight in the eyes, and say that they did not hum along with that theme? Oh, and a little bonus
Heh, yeah, I've played minimal amounts of Battlefield, and I still remember that hymn vividly. Made me want to stay in the menu and not actually play the game.
