    Default Fan of videogame music?

    One of the reasons I admire KOEI for, is the continuation of fantastic music, especially catchy memorable instrumental pieces. It's why I prefer the SW series attempt at music. Not only do I just love music from the Warriors series, but also from hot titles like Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, Zelda and other Nintendo videogames. Zelda's music has really impressed me over the years with the orchestral scores.

    Personally I generally have found out over the years I prefer cheerful, catchy and spiritful musical moments.

    Samples of videogame music I've recently listend to:

    Zelda
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=95gzBvH9fik (Brawl Version though LOL)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s7fqllhtdHI (way too catchy)

    Final Fantasy
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OcUulyx5HM0 (Sephiroth... yes. But just too good to ignore! I'm not a fanboy of his either!)

    Mario Galaxy
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WsAFp...eature=related
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-z2kx...eature=related
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BMa0a...eature=related (shakey in places but wait til 1:30)

    Tomb Raider Underworld
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=trnDeJg9vrc (fast tempo and very much suiting the actual level)

    Samurai Warriors 2XL Okehazama
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CF_RpazG_js (LOL at the info description)

    Dynasty Warriors 6
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vBPgyFMwhT8 (Could this possibly be my favorite Warriors track of all time?! Very fitting for Mt. Ding Jun where you take the summit and have the morale, too. )
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xHkQIeJxw2o (Epic piano)

    Eve is DW4's best as well, IMO.

    That long FF track is like Sephiroth's due to the fact it has many parts. Like a few tunes in one kind of thing.

    Since you love that music have you seen this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C8vz1...eature=related? A pretty funny version of it by Hyadain.

    But anyways i love most game music, and especially music composed by Motoi Sakuraba (he's done most music for the Tales of games, Star Ocean games, some nintendo games and Eternal Sonata). It's also very easy for me to love music with vocals and also the japanese intro's to games so i really hate when developers do as Namco and remove the japanese intro in their Tales of games.

    Here are some of my favorites with my top favorite first:

    Tales of Symphonia - Sheena's Theme:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RPfTJbyJcHc

    Persona 4 Battle Music:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TzFl6sWHmXI

    Luminous Arc 1 and 2 Openings:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ksGAa7iI1So
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lp3Ll...eature=related

    Final Fantasy VIII:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OlfH3r780So

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1eU0tRBHnE0
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RNdGoENQNQ4

    And lastly one of my newest favorites:
    Mana Khemia Opening:

    No, I never saw that version of the theme but after watching it, I couldn't stop laughing at the images lol. Good find!

    Anyways, I have some more I would like to share since I forgot about them earlier.

    This has always been on of my classic favorites from Zelda:

    I love the soundtrack to Silent Hill Origins. It's so dark and brooding.
    These are a few of my fave videogame tracks:

    Silent Hill Origins
    O.R.T

    Grandia III (the game was fantastic too)
    In The Sky

    Fan of video game music? In the words of the Churchill dog: Ohhhhh yuusss.

    Castlevania:
    Michiru Yamane is definitely one of my fav. composers for games, she's given some of the Castlevania games some of the best game music there is, and there was a lot of good tunes before she took over as well:
    Bloodlines - Iron Blue Intention - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nH9X1iRAjC0
    Super Castlevania IV - Theme Of Simon Belmont - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5dauRYb9il8
    Lament Of Innocence - Dark Palace Of Waterfalls - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r1gYvcMLXAM
    ROndo Of Blood - Bloodlines - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H5JhiHY3jjU
    Curse Of Darkness - A Toccata Into Blood Soaked Darkness - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hIF0QUuJv1s

    King Of Fighters:
    Always best to stick it to arrange in the bgm settings when you play these games. I've been informed that they composed the tracks first and then tried to squeeze them into the NeoGeo's limited sound capacity. Don't know how true that is but the AST's are largely brilliant. Other SNK stuff tends to be pretty awesome as well:
    '96 - Seoul Road - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YKtPW...eature=related
    '97 - Cool Jam - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wqac_EmgsRw
    '99 - Dear Falling Angel - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qwKXt...eature=related
    '00 - Ice Palace - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4DADaVoIwE4 <-- Unfortunately I could only find a Stepmania video for it. :P

    Other Random's:
    Mega Man X - Boomer Kuwanger Stage - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_IVbuC1ZSs
    Star Gladiator - Zelkin's Theme - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MY1UU...om=PL&index=16
    Marvel Super Heroes - Captain America's Theme - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cJtCUQ0NZa8
    Mega Turrican - 1st Stage - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DLqos66n3Qo
    Gitaroo Man - Flyin' To Your Heart - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iThvfax4w8o <-- A KOEI track at last ;D
    Vagrant Story - Truth - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qcG9znhCSWM
    Ace Attorney - Objection! They goin' down! - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WHhMH...eature=related
    Sonic THe HEdgehog - Green Hill ZOne - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xHL4vs566Yg
    Sonic 2 - Chemical Plant Zone - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V5wX_4MvKEs

    Considering is it the only type I hear mostly, I probably would say yes. Admittedly, I have not checked every link so I apologise if I repeat something. (Great minds right?)

    Final Fantasy - Intro Music - You may of heard this once or twice if you have played a Final Fantasy. Good thing for me that I liked it.

    Final Fantasy X/X2 -To Zanarkand

    Golden Sun -Golden Sun Final Dungeon - Very impressive for a GBA game

    The Legend of Zelda -Zelda's Lullaby
