Tell GR: What's Your Favorite Gaming Soundtrack?

"Soundtracks help flesh a game out entirely. Imagine your favorite game without a soundtrack. That game totally sucks now, right? Check out this week's TGR video to catch top picks from Nick Tan, Heath Hindman, Keri Honea, Jonathan Leack, Alex Osborn, and myself." -GR (Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII, Culture, Final Fantasy VI, Nier, Persona 4: The Golden, PS Vita, PS2, PS3, PSP, Retro, Xbox 360)

Soundtrack was the only redeeming factor in Sonic 2006. Sega has to try hard to mess up an OST.
Donnieboi  +   382d ago
Lol yeah one of the best soundtracks EVER, but that game is one of the worst, buggiest retail releases ever made. Absolute trash game.
dedicatedtogamers  +   382d ago
There are so many to choose from, but I'd probably pick Total Annihilation.
MrMister  +   382d ago
I just checked out that soundtrack on youtube and yeah it's pretty good.

Ace Combat is rarely mentioned, but it certainly deserves it. Many good tracks have come from that franchise. The more obvious choices are of course Final Fantasy, Metal Gear, Halo, Elder Scrolls among others.
dbjj12088  +   382d ago
Lots of people told me to listen to AC soundtrack even if I don't play the game. Now it's one of my favorites.
Donnieboi  +   382d ago
Dude I forgot about Ace Combat series! Hell yeah!

Oh yeah, and don't forget the early Ridge Racer games by Namco too.

It may sound cliché, but FFVII would definitely be one of my favorites.

Another favorite of mine would be Castlevania Lords of Shadow.

Chrono Trigger. I love just about every track on that game...
chadboban  +   382d ago
One of my absolute favorites as well.
While we're on that topic, how about a lovely acapella version of "Corridors of Time"

Great taste! I love Smooth McGroove! :]

My favorite : Max payne
Chaos_Raiden  +   382d ago
My most favourite soundtracks are:

Final Fantasy X
Nier
Valkyria Chronicles
Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4
Kingdom Hearts 2

I find that many, many RPGs have memorable soundtracks, especially Final Fantasy series, Kingdom Hearts series, and others.
knifefight  +   382d ago
If you had to pick just 1, like what they did for this video, what do you think yours would be?

I'd probably ride the Nier train. Matched the game so well. (So did the others, but still!) ^_^
Chaos_Raiden  +   382d ago
It is hard to choose, but I will pick Final Fantasy X. That game is the first game on PS2 that made me in love with video game music.
crider771  +   382d ago
So many great soundtracks, it's hard to chose a few, but here's mine...

Ys Book 1&2 (Turbografx 16 cd)
Chaos Legion
Star Control 2
Kakuto Chojin
Ridge Racer Type 4
r21  +   382d ago
What springs to mind is GR, Gravity Rush. That soundtrack!

TLOU!!! :)
HugoDrax  +   382d ago
Castlevania Symphony of the Night will always be my favorite.
_FantasmA_  +   382d ago
I haven't played most of these games since they are RPGS but Deus Ex Human Revolution and Deus Ex had some of the best soundtracks of all time!
effinrobjob  +   382d ago
nobody on here will have ever played this game, but for an NES game especially, it was an epic soundtrack. Also one of the best games nobody ever played. Baseball meets RPG epicness that we will never see again.

The best soundtrack in my opinion is from a little indie gamed called, To The Moon.

Otherwise, some other favourites come from:
- Persona 4
- Final Fantasy
- Silent Hill
- Elder Scrolls
- Valkyria Chronicles
- Xenoblade Chronicles
- Halo
- Castlevania
sherimae2413  +   382d ago
persona 4 and 3 for me

specially that final boss battle music in p4g ^_^
Canidae  +   382d ago
If I had to choose just one, it would be The World Ends with You. Twister, Calling, Someday (boss battles to that track were epic), and last but not least A Lullaby for You (got something in my eye on that one).
Capt-FuzzyPants  +   382d ago
Definitely Kingdom Hearts for me. Nothing will ever top it based solely on nostalgia.
Thatmattkid  +   382d ago
Scott Pilgrim: The Game. Anamanaguchi sure know how to create an epic, retro soundtrack!
DestinyHeroDoomlord  +   382d ago
Dark souls, monster hunter 1 and dragon quest viii
chikane  +   382d ago
Final Fantasy x x-2 12 13 and somewhat 13-2

ace combat 4 5 and zero

love the soundtracks of those games
