Gerudo Valley takes some beating!
Great tune but this is better:
Never heard of that game. Of its time, (not a bad thing).
The compositions are actually really rich and complex.
Not sure about modern games, I liked the incidental music in gtav and mgsv
GTAV has some great music. Love the music whilst it’s loading (Tangerine Dream).
I really like the Everyones Gone To The Rapture soundtrack. Probably go for FFVIII though
Xenon 2. (Assault on Precinct 13)
Always found a real melancholy in this
And David Wise is really in a league of his own when it comes to video game composers
best boss music ever. ridiculously intense. of course, you really have to loop it for an hour for true effect.
A couple of assorted faves
Cybernoid one a two
This video is cool since it shows you how it’s all done with only 3 voices.
sounds like an evanescence instrumental
Modern games, I really like the soundtrack to Monument Valley:
This complete and utter banger
And almost all the music from Final Fantasy X ofc
Cool Thread - interestingly the gaming forum at work recently had this same post - this was my entry then -
Stubbs The Zombie In Rebel without a Pulse - 50’s/60’s songs covered by Ben Kweller, Death Cab For Cutie, The Ravonettes, Flaming Lips - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8_jK6XXq2xg
Quake Soundtrack - Was/still am huge Trent Reznor/NIN fan, so was pretty psyched at the time to find out he did this - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qVOHTGYoM6E
Brothers: A Tale of two suns - this is one game soundtrack where it seems to elevate the game itself imo - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oN4VAUWuKqE
Bastion - Big Supergiant games fan (basically, off the back of this games and soundtrack) - anyway, bit loathe to send a link (and the next tbh) as its one that is so cleverly used in the game, espcially how you “hear” the song “Build A Wall” for the first time in the game, but here it is - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oLA0vB9LCTM
Transistor - Darren Korb again in Supergiant Games knocks it out of park imo - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-zA1jRmAYfU
Hotline Miami - again, elevates the game, although totally works standalone too - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oKD-MVfC9Ag
No Man’s Sky Full Soundtrack OST: Music for an Infinite Universe/Soundscape - big fan of this band for quite awhile so was over the moon (pun intended) when I found out they were doing the music - arguably the highlight of the game - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EZMJPNekzds
Doom (2016) - This is so well integrated into the game that again loathe to share out of context - bada$$ - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DYC0qgPQfiM
Mirrors Edge - Adrenalin pumping stuff, good work out music - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y05wiQQbFLU
Duke Nukem 3D - Outside of Doom and Quake (see above) has there ever been another more memorable theme tune to First Person shoot peeps in the face? - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CezOHqlXAFY - especially this version by a certain metal band! - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ByuZfnImh9o
