Game Soundtracks


‘Hey, how about we watch a Uwe Boll flick later?’

‘Get the hell away from me. Jesus.’

Sorry, I had to make an impromptu shot at Uwe ( SORRY UWE!!)

Anyhow, I love game soundtracks. I mean, would Secret of Mana have been the same without Hiroki Kikuta’s amazing OST? No it wouldn’t. It would have still been good, but not the masterpiece that it is.

So here are my favs.

1.) Secret of Mana ( oh you saw this coming??)

One cannot be a gamer without loving SOM, especially the soundtrack. I don’t need to elaborate on this much, do I? I mean, the fight sequences were superb, and the soundtrack made them. So was when he got kicked out of the village ( I felt so sad for him).

2.) Baten Kaitos

I think the BK soundtrack is a masterpiece. It is something one can listen to all day long ( esp the fight music at work…). I think the game was a hidden gem, and it is one of my top 5 favorites.

3.) Legend of Zelda

I put this on the same level as Chrono Trigger. Both are amazing.

4.) Demento/Haunting Ground

The most fucked up, scary music ever. I mean, the game play is not terribly challenging in Demento but with this game soundtrack, it is.

5.) Resident Evil 4

LOVE THE GUITAR in this clip. The entire OST is perfect for the brilliant game. I love the save point music especially. Or was that the trader’s music. I have to replay it now!!

6.) Beyond Good and Evil

This could be my favorite game after Secret of Mana. It is perfection. If you haven’t played it, please do. And get ahold of the soundtrack, which is one of the best ever made. You can listen to it all day long and never get bored.

7.) The Clock Tower series OSTs

These babies are HARD TO FIND!!! What an amazing series…

8.) Kingdom Hearts OSTs

I listen to KH 1 and 2 more then any other soundtrack nowadays. They are sheer brilliance.

9.) Primal

A MUST PLAY, with an amazing soundtrack and score. Get BOTH.

10.) Deadly Premonition

So says calanagear….

11.) Princess Tomato

Chances are you haven’t played this classic. But you should. The music is 80s wonderful.

12.) Harvest Moon: It’s a wonderful life!

Did this game convince anyone they should move to a remote place in Japan? It did for me. Seriously. I want to live in Harvest Moon!!

13.) Mass Effect

This soundtrack was very unique, in my opinion. One of a kind.

14.) Indigo Prophecy

Another great OST and game!!

15.) The Silent Hill series ( ALL)

These are, by far, my top game soundtracks. My fav out of the series are 2 and 4, but I love the others just as much. Akira Yamaoka is an incredible artist and I know my days have been enriched by listening to his music.

>Beyond Good and Evil 2: when, oh when….


OK, so basically I am OBSESSED with BG&E. After Secret of Mana, it really could be my favorite game. Because of this, I have been waiting like a heroin addict for its sequel. According to wiki:

‘On Aug 19, 2010, Yves Guilemot, Ubisofts CEO said to Kotaku that work continues and has never stopped on the highly anticipated sequel to 2003’s Beyond Good & Evil. We were, as we are, working on the game. What is very import with this next product is that it will be perfect’

Ubisoft’s Michel Ancel has been working on the game for several years; because of poor sales, it took them a while to get it going. See, the problem is that game companies fail to give the extra funds to developers for games that are a little obscure, compared to some of the famous shooters and RPGs we all know of. Look at Winter, the game that was begun and stopped due to lack of funding. Several thousand gamers signed a petition stating they wanted to play it, but still no one has picked up the tab.
I can’t wait for BG&E 2 to come out, though I am scared of what they will do to Hillys, if the game will even be set there ( oh it BETTER be). I was so pissed with Silent Hill Homecoming having barely taken place in Silent Hill that I have still not played Shattered Memories.
We shall see, and hopefully soon….
