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
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
Ditto EGTTR - picked it up on vinyl (having bought it on CD) recently - i think (morbidly) if the end of the world sounds as good as this, it will be okay - elevates the game
