I'm taking a small break atm from modding 1187.
I love to listen to games music as much as I do listening to regular bands.
Old skool games, the ones who grew up with them, like I have, will have a special place for them in our hearts. They evoke memories of nostalgia. A time and place that we where at in our childhoods when playing these games. Upon hearing some of these songs I'm sure some of us tend to go back and reminiscence about these times gone by.
So I have constructed my own small personal top 5 of all time favourites. But hey It's my personal list so don't get hung up on it. It's not my ultimate top 5, cause in reality I don't have one favourite song, they all mean something to me, and I there's tons of other songs that could be on the list. so yeah here you go, plus some other songs worth mentioning:
I never had a MEGADRIVE / GENESIS but a friend of mine did. And I will always remember the times we spent beating SONIC 1. And the song of Green hill zone is a special one to me.
One of the first games I got for the SNES where Mario World, Zelda LTTP and Street Fighter 2. Yeah just plain old SF2. I still prefer the songs from that particular game more then any remake. Yes i'm old skool like that. I love Chun Li's theme, Ken's, Vega and many more. But I've chosen Ryu's theme, because it's just that awesome :
Starwing will always remain my favourite from all the others. Probably because it had such an impact on me when I was younger. The gameplay was amazing and the graphics at the time just stunning. and yeah, there was the music. The first song you hear playing this game is the corneria one. And what a bad ass song it still is today:
And then there was the PSX. Always been a nintendo fan but I got me the PSX too. I played tons of WhipeOut 1 and still is my favourite one. Because WhipeOut was incredibly hard, one mistake and you had to fight your way all the way back to pole position. But seriously, Tomb Raider 1 was just amazing. Being a fan of Zelda OOT and having played that game a whole lot, Tomb Raider just was an amazing experience. And yes the music also helped quite a great deal.
Portal... One of those treats you don't come by everyday. Everything about this game was just plain genius. It's one of the reasons why I think Valve is such an awesome developer. They had me with Half-Life 1 and 2 was an equal blast. The Episodes brought the franchise even to greater heights. and then they released Portal. I loved it and by the end of it, they gave you an awesome soundtrack, just to put the icing on the cake ... yeah, that cake ...
So there you have it. Some of my favourite songs, but not all of them. There's tons of Final Fantasy songs that I adore. And other old skool ones from old series like the TMNT arcade games, the megaman franchise and much more. Perhaps I'll post another one when I have some more free time. oh well, hope you enjoyed them.
