What makes this list laughable in my opinion is the fact that the Final Fantasy VI soundtrack was nowhere to be found, when I consider it to be at least in the top 3. Anyone can make these lists though.

steriotyp3423d ago

was considered, but if you read the first paragraph, this list is composed of the most memorable. Most gamers are more familiar with VII than the latter. It should get an honorable mention though.

sticky doja3423d ago

That one song, the main theme song I will remember for the rest of my life.

ItsDubC3423d ago

FFVII pretty much made FF mainstream and was the first FF for a lot of gamers today so with that said, I'll agree that its soundtrack would be more memorable. But damn, FFVI's soundtrack is just on a whole other level in terms of modern music. I consider Nobuo Uematsu to be up there w/ all the great composers.

steriotyp3423d ago

Nobuo Uematsu is a great composer. I liked his work in Ehrgeiz as well as his new stuff in Blue Dragon (From what I have heard so far)

I'm a huge Halo fan.. and the music does sound great, but it definitely doesn't deserve to be ranked first on that list.

I think ff7 should be top. Before I clicked the link I already guessed what number 1 would be. Still, each to their own I suppose.

Someone should give this guy a Metal Gear Solid OST.
And no Shenmue soundtrack? This list a no-no.

tplarkin73423d ago

I agree about Shenmue. Every room had different music. My favorite is the Tomato Store.

I mean Vice City single handedly brought back 80's clothes and music to the mainsteam. I can't remember how many times I heard A Flock of Seagulls "I Ran" or Corey Harts "Sunglasses at Night" on the radio for like 2 years after that game.

TheSadTruth3423d ago

Pretty much every squaresoft game ever created has a better score than Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, you should be thankful it's even on the list at all..

ktchong3423d ago (Edited 3423d ago )

I have 70-80 game soundtrack CDs, maybe even more, (all orchestration or instrumental -- no pop music, rock-and-roll or oldie craps for me.)

Halo 3 is near the top, but not #1.

On the other hand, neither Final Fantasy (any of them) nor MGS deserves to be #1.

steriotyp3423d ago

Halo 2. Halo 3 does not compare to the theme of Halo 2 imo

Geewhizz3423d ago

so what is your number 1?

i like system shock 2 :)))
