    Default Video Game music.

    I play a lot of video games. And they just wouldn't be very good without the fantastic music.

    The Final Fantasy Series and the Dragon Quest both by square-enix.
    The scores for these games are just epic.
    Nobuo Uematsu is the Final Fantasy composer
    Koichi Sugiyama is the Dragonquest composer.
    Both extremely awesome. I recommend if you get the chance to listen to some of the works by these guys.

    For some of the best Music of Nobuo's pick up the Movie Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children.
    Just Awesome.

    Also the Very popular MMORPG World of Warcraft has some excellent scoring and I'll be soon to pick up the soundtrack.

    Check it out

    Best video game music?

    SUPER MARIO BROS

    haha, NO CONTEST.


    But in terms of classical work, Resident Evil 4. The Typewriter Theme gets me depressed and gives me the chills every time.

    I played the Gerudo Valley theme on Xylophone for my assessment at school.
    It was so cool.

    I have a recording of the Mario Bros. theme conducted by John Williams,... I think (either with Boston Pops or London Phil.). It's pretty nice.

    As a video game player I enjoy:

    The Final Fantasy series and music
    World of Warcraft music
    and Eve online music - though it tends to be more electronic/rave than classical

    I think a game should have goodmusic. I really sadly love the old MIDI themed music. They had so little towork with and yet did a great job. I always loved the music for Super Mario Bros. 3. Twilight princess had some good tunes. I would have prefered full range orchestrah music with a bang. bt i guess im old fashioned like that.

    Wow, Final Fantasy series has the best music imo. Nobuo Uematsu it's a genius, so many amazing pieces of music that always brings good memories when i hear them. Someone mentioned Zelda, i really love the music of that game too.
    It's amazing that those games wouldn't be the same if they didn't have that superb music.

    And I play those 2 games more than anything else. Nobuo is my Hero. Watching him play in his concerts he just has so much fun and you can tell he really enjoys the music.
    Unfortunately I don't speak a word of Japanese so I can't know what he was saying about the pieces but it's still awesome.

    I have a dvd of Prima Vista Philharmonic doing a Final Fantasy Concert. Absolutely Epic

    I think the Halo (1) music is pretty awesome in places. I haven't found any that quite compare to really good film music, like Bernard Hermann's. (But then I've never heard the Final Fantasy music.)

    How about Manic Miner (really bad beeper renditions of An der Schoenen Blaue Donau and In the Hall of the Mountain King)

    I'm not widely experienced in this genre, but the best music I ever heard in a computer game was in Uru - most of it being terrifically atmospheric in a way consistent with the feeling of 'here is a mysterious lost civilisation' in the game. But it also contains one particular piece of wordless soprano singing that lasts only a couple of minutes, but which (representing as it does the tragic death of a civilisation) has haunted me for years.

    I saw this thread, so I just had to post this...

    Percussion ensemble performs Super Mario 2 Overworld theme

    I laughed out loud at a certain point. If you grew up with this game at all, trust me, you will too.
