‘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.
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.
