This is what I've been doing for the last 30 minutes — searching for youtube links to my favourite video game soundtracks. I know, I know. What a waste of time. But I thought I'd share some of my own favourites. Now I want to hear yours!
I'm going to put some of mine below, but I'd love for you guys to drop your favourites in the comments below!
Metal Gear Solid 3
Most people love the Snake Eater theme — and I'm among that group — but I think the amazing song that comes afterwards, the one that accompanies the actual title screen, is equally as memorable. I just love the low, minimalistic scuzzy bass line. I could listen to this for ages.
Seriously. How good is this?
I've actually never played this game — but a friend put me on to this, and I've fallen in love with it!
Halo has always had memorable music. Love this one.
Secret Of Mana
I find it hard to listen to this without collapsing into a fetal ball of pure nostalgia.
Metroid Prime is godly. This music is godly.
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
By far the best thing about the most recent Zelda was this track. Maybe my favourite Zelda song of all time.
Alright, let's hear some of your favourites!
