Post 16bit happiness

Why is it that soundtracks these days don't seem to supercharge me like the old 8-16bit games did?
Here are some from my 4 favorite games ever.

First there was Rocket Knight Adventure

YouTube - Rocket Knight Adventures: Stage 6

YouTube - Rocket Knight Adventures Music - Stage 5-1

YouTube - Rocket Knight Adventures stage 7

And of course Megaman 3

YouTube - Mega Man 3 OST, T10: Top Man Stage (Spinning Greenhouse)

YouTube - Mega Man 3 Complete Works: Dr Wily´s Stages 2

Special props go to Symphony of the night which was the first track i remember listening to that changed when it cycled round the 2nd and third time.

YouTube - Castlevania - The Clock Tower

and last but not least my favorite of all time, which i catch myself humming when bored and always reminds me of epic. Wild Arms 3

YouTube - Wild Arms 3 Crossfire Sequence(Janus Theme)

hope that's not going overboard

Also i'm still not used to posting so when i can figure out how to paste videos directly in here i'll do tht instead... and not as many

Dont know about any of you, but back on the old NES before music got to be more then 8-bit, this was in my eyes one of the best soundtracks for a game.

YouTube - ‪Journey to Silius (NES) - Stage 1‬‏

And from more recent times.....

There is cool music and there are cool remixes. This one is both.

I have to go with a classic:



For something more recent I'd go with Kingdom Hearts:

I liked the Fallout games - music worked in very well with the game for me.

The Quake 2 soundtrack was pretty rockin', lots of chunky guitars



Most of the DOOM and DOOM 2 soundtrack, but always loved this one, still find myself singing it:



And this one:



And finally, of course:

That initial preview frame for McDonald Land looked a bit dodgy to me. Let me say it didn't look like a tent at first glance lol.
