Game soundtracks have evolved from beeps off sound chips to Hollywood blockbuster level scores. Is that really a good thing?
My all time favorite was Oblivion but I gotta say that the Fallout NV is really awesome. Especially using headphones.
Most Japanese games do have the best video game soundtracks however the American games have some pretty great ones too, though not as many, but some as good in my opinion. These are the American ones I love: Modern Warfare 2 - Going Loud (DUN DUN DUN) - http://tinyurl.com/277brtl Borderlands - Ain't No Rest For The Wicked - http://tinyurl.com/37vgsr9 Half Life 2: Episode 2 - Sector Sweep - http://tinyurl.com/2874q64 Halo 3 - One Final Effort - http://tinyurl.com/39n2695 Halo: Reach - Lone Wolf - http://tinyurl.com/2wypb4e Deadspace Theme - http://tinyurl.com/3afqz3e (Goose Bumps Anyone?) Split/Second OST 1 - http://tinyurl.com/386c9e5 Gears of War 2 - Hope Runs Deep - http://tinyurl.com/399yeky Killzone 2 - Main Menu - http://tinyurl.com/3xbt7zl God of War 3 - The Final Battle - http://tinyurl.com/3xrmqya God of War 3 - Brothers of Blood - http://www.youtube.com/watc... (2nd favorite, especially from 2:04-2:45) Call of Duty:WaW Black Cats - http://tinyurl.com/34nnuhl (My favorite) (When I heard this in WaW, I lost it) Post your American favorites :-) PS. Most of these American games are shooters, lol
If I enjoy the music in a particular game, it actually enhances the overall experience for me. I'm glad we are seeing this type of evolution in video game soundtracks.
my vote goes to Tekken Tag Tournament Arcade, Tekken 3 Arcade version, and DDR Extreme jp version
