Who Says Main Menu Music Can't Be Awesome?

Gaming Enthusiast:

"So often, we are treated to epic Title Screen/Main Menu soundtracks that are really inviting, catchy, or stirring, depending on the nature of the game. In this article we will look back over some really great Main Menu music. (26 different games, to be exact.) I think you’ll agree with me that many of them stir up some nostalgia as you recognize them and bring back many pleasant memories." (3DS, iPad, iPhone, Nintendo DS, PC, PS Vita, PS3, PSP, Retro, Wii, Xbox 360)

My favorite of the bunch is definitely Metal Gear Solid 2. That music makes me want to go and crawl through air vents or something.

Freedom Fighters had the best main menu music ever.

"Still Alive" from mirrors edge always puts me good mood, before I have to trudge off to work or Uni.

for me its metal gear solid 3. "CQC" menu music. Something tribal about it. Love it and its a nice way to start a game

How could they not have Dearly Beloved from any of the KH games.
Menashe  +   1323d ago
Oops, that's a bad omission. I'll stick it in right away. Thanks for reminding me.

MGS2 main theme & FFX To Zanarkand r the best on this list by far but imo the article miss one of the most recognizable game theme from one of the most iconic video game char of the past 15 years http://www.youtube.com/watc... and it's truly a shame how can he forget to add this unforgivable.

Also remember what I am saying right now in the future this theme http://www.youtube.com/watc... will be also right there with all the other legendary games as one of the best ever and when ppl hear it 10 or more years from now tears will fall from their eyes as they will remember the experience of playing the game.

One of the staff actually suggested that Xenoblade track. I'll stick both of your suggestions in now because they are good ones. (Xenoblade is going in the Nintendo version of the article on Nintendo Enthusiast.)

You can read the Nintendo version here, with 25 of its own menu tracks. http://www.nintendoenthusia...

That Killzone music got you in the mood for CARNAGE! Loved that track!

Simplicity aside, Final Fantasy games still send a chill down my spine when I hit the "New Game" on the main menu <3
I've done it too many times for FF8. Love that damn game.
