6 Pieces of Suspiciously Familiar Video Game Music

AlienLion writes:

"Video game music is its’ own genre, wouldn’t you say? It’s always had a rather unique sound and mood, usually only fit for video games (as awesome as it is, you rarely see anyone moshing to Sonic 2 soundtrack, for example). Even outside of the NES/Genesis era, there is just something about the melodies that says “you’re on a very important mission and spilling epic blood is okay.” So where does it come from? A lot is simply licensed but are there some glimpses and samples, in the ‘original’ game music, that are not immediately apparent?" (Culture, Diablo, Diablo 2, Mega Man 2, Mega Man X3, Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure, Streets of Rage, Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3)
