Don't forget the Zelda theme song guys. How can you ever get that out of your head ? It burns itself in your brain.

A long long time ago before the invention of harddisks,dvd roms and floppy disks in a time where birds still had to walk, we had to load our games from a cassette tape that took 30 minutes to load.
during that time we where presented with a loading screen that sometimes had some kickass music.
We loaded the shittiest games just to hear the music

Would have to be Secret of Mana on SNES for me. Main theme had a big impact on me as a kid and I still love the entire soundtrack.

Donkey Kong Country love? That had a great funky track to it that really went with the style of the game:

Goldeneye also had some great music in it too, probably overshadowed by the game itself!

X-Men vs. Street Fighter had some cranking music too Gamits theme:


DooM had some great hard rock inspired tracks and some people went and did some remixes of them:

Hangarmageddon Evil Horde -"Dark Side of Phobos" Project:

IMO, The theme song from Rome: Total War. The version with lyrics from the credits screen. "Forever" by Jeff van Dyck. A good aussie artist - his wife sings the song.



A really lovely song. The chorus is awesome.

One I just realised hadn't been mentioned is a real goodie.

"Best of Times" from World of Goo. In "video game music" circles (yes, for some people this is their entire hobby!) this had been widely acclaimed - and it's in an indie title. Nice orchestrals and choir. Unfortunately the end is a bit of a let-down. So much more the composer could have done from the crescendo. Your taste may vary.



And another fav just for the memories

FF5 SNES opening credits.

Seconding Wonderboy ... man ... I'd forgotten about the skateboard



Also, possibly breaking the rules of the thread, but LOVE this trailer song from Assassins Creed: Revelations.
