The soundtracks to both of these games are pure, peppy gold from beginning to end.
Of all the great music in these games, this is the track that ended up sticking with me most.
I should have made this thread a 10:1 ratio, shouldn't I?
Hey, do you need to just let yourself enjoy FEELING intense rage for 7ish minutes? Mick Gordon's got you.
Ok, let's all come down from that rage fest, everyone chill. Geez.
The best part is that Devola is actually playing this song in-game, and the vocal track will drop out if you talk to her. It's wonderful.
This utterly incredible, dramatic, title screen theme deserved a better game.
For that matter, so did this wonderful opening theme.
Speaking of unremarkable games with killer soundtracks, did you know Akira Yamaoka will ROCK THE FUCK OUT when given the opportunity?
I feel like we need to come down again, hang on... Did you know FFX-2's soundtrack is actually pretty wonderful?
I always end up letting this whole song play before actually loading my save. Every time.
How does this game STILL not have a proper HD re-release, holy dang.
This piece is so beautifully mournful it hurts.
Jeremy Soule, man. Wow.
uh oh, the Persona seal is broken and the floodgates are open, uh oh
How am I never tired of the music in these games after over 100 hours of play time each?
This franchise's boss fight themes are out of control.
I can't handle how much I like this game's music in general, but THIS TRACK ESPECIALLY
I feel like I don't hear Christophe's work celebrated nearly often enough. His scoring for Beyond Good & Evil 2's TRAILERS is already making me well up.
Disgaea 2 is my favorite in the series, but I get the feeling I might be alone in that sentiment? That's ok, because the tunes are great.
Mick Gordon might be my favorite composer in games right now, and that's saying something.
I love how this theme not only perfectly captures that emotion of an epic battle you've been building to for hours and DON'T WANT, but also sneaks in leitmotifs from Toriel's battle theme. Potent.
I need to chill with the Undertale music before it starts me tearing up.
oh shit, Mick Gordon's coming back, EVERYONE HOLD ON TO SOMETHING
For being my least favorite Zelda game, Skyward Sword sure does have an amazing soundtrack.
I mean, right? Listen to that.
This game is so special to me, and picking best Katamari tracks is near impossible.
That said, here's a best Katamari track.
Yoko Shimomura was such a PERFECT hire for Kingdom Hearts, it's bonkers.
More later, but enjoy this very cheerful Kirby music in the meantime!
Back on that song recommending grind, I guess. :P
What a good and weird soundtrack this good and weird game has.
Y'all really should play Okami if you haven't. One of the best, prettiest Zelda games ever made.
A sequel to this game means a new Ori soundtrack, and that is very very good news.
Seriously, though, don't sleep on the de Blob game soundtracks. They're energetic fun beginning to end.
The AC series has had some solid main themes over the years, but this remains one of my favorites of the lot.
Even today, having to open the PlayOnline viewer to VERY TEDIOUSLY log in to FFXI is made better thanks to music like this.
What the hey, we're gonna be here for a while. Let's do all Final Fantasy tunes for the next few hours. :P
Every iteration of this theme is good, but the FF7 version will always hold a special place for me.
I just keep growing to love this game more and more.
Besaid is two-for-two on getting really great music.
Dang but this game's music is good.
This zone had a great theme in the sequel too, come to think of it.
Y'all, I'm telling you: this game's soundtrack is awesome.
(The game itself is great too, don't believe the haters) <3
Sakimoto's music IS the sound of Ivalice, and I love it.
...And that's been true from Ivalice's opening moments.
This thread is getting out of control.
For some reason, few game title screens make me feel this happy.
This game feels like if Studio Ghibli was forced to help make a superhero game, and one of the biggest reasons is the music. Lazily drifting over the streets of a sky city while this plays is wonderful.
Jeremy Soule, though.
This game soundtrack is so legendarily good, posting tracks from it in this list feels like cheating.
HyperDuck SoundWorks are so great. This track nails that JRPG spirit of "the world is LITERALLY being swallowed around us, but FUCK IT WE'RE GONNA WIN"
How is even the MUSIC for this game bombastically, majestically epic in scale?
This old Kirby tune deserves more love.
Man, I miss SSX.
This whole soundtrack is so lovely.
S A K I M O T O F O R E V E R
What a good good sound this game has.
This perfectly captures Bloodborne for me: a mysterious, haunting quiet.
Hamauzu deserves SO much more credit than he gets for his work on the Final Fantasy series.
Disgaea soundtracks have such a distinct sound and I love them.
Clock Town's last moments before the apocalypse are surprisingly chilling, thanks largely to this very melancholy music.
Big fan of this happy, twinkly map theme in a game already full of catchy map themes.
This really is one heck of a boss battle theme, even by Uematsu standards.
Haven't played it yet, but I just knew this game's soundtrack was going to be one of the best of the year and WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED.
Stuck in Your Head: The Soundtrack.
I love love love how Bioshock Infinite made such creative use of diegetic music. I wish more games would do that.
When Jake gets hired, you know you're in for a good time.
That orchestra. I love Monster Hunter.
74 entries before going back to Mega Man 2! I'm proud of myself.
wow this sure is a thread huh
I could cheat and just post every track from this game in a row.
I always loved the rhythmic texture of Gregson-William's tracks for MGS2. Perfect fit for those scenes.
If you've never actually stopped and just listened to the great Peter McConnell's music for Hearthstone, you really should!
Looooot of catchy tunes in this game (because Tallarico).
The Likes are outpacing my recommendations somewhat.
So lovely. I gotta play this again sometime.
Stealing this from @surasshu 's thread, because HOLY SHIT that is some impressive prog rock from a NES chip.
Love that thick, distorted sound.
S A K I M O T O
Screw it, time for another Persona spam.
Again, I can't BELIEVE how many hours I spent hearing these tunes without ever ever getting tired of them.
Heck of a battle theme, this one.
This is god-tier JRPG final boss music, right here.
It's pretty amazing how fully-formed Splatoon's whole aesthetic was right out the gate.
Let's get some more Korb in here.
Alright, that's enough game music for one day. Let's all chill and call it a night.
Yeah, that's right: it's ANOTHER FFX-2 track! TRY AND STOP ME.
The original is good, but I love this upbeat arrangement SO much more.
Someone asked for more fighting game music, and this thread was starting to get Mick Gordon withdrawal anyway, so LET'S GET PUMPED
Look, let's just get this out of the way. :P
But also THIS soundtrack!
And this one also!
Anyway, just a few hundred more to go...
Welp, that's enough for today. 😴
APPARENTLY some people find 100+ tweet spam threads obnoxious, so here's a hashtag you can mute if you don't want my AMAZING recommendations. 😎 #vgm5for1
All I remember of this game is nice music, photography and endless golf.
Disgaea games have great music, but D2's soundtrack is my favorite by far.
For a tune produced by an NES sound chip, this final boss theme has astonishing gravitas.
This game REALLY needs to be made available for purchase again. #vgm5for1
Nice and chill. Katamari fans will probably find this familiar. #vgm5for1
This is one of the best pieces of music in the whole Mass Effect franchise. #vgm5for1
This game had Yasunori Mitsuda AND Nobuo Uematsu writing music for it. How could it NOT end up being one of the greatest game soundtracks ever made. #vgm5for1
I really dug this game's musical sound in general. #vgm5for1
I love that Pearl and Marina bring a noticeable sound difference to the sequel's Splatfest tunes. #vgm5for1
Let's kick today off with a bunch of Mitsuda. Maybe my favorite game composer? Top 5, no question. #vgm5for1
I don't think there's a dud to be found in this entire soundtrack. #vgm5for1
I'll probably never play this game again, but I'll be listening to the soundtrack FOREVER. #vgm5for1
My friends and I would almost always set this as the BGM for our all-night multiplayer binges. #vgm5for1
These games are rhythm-based, by which I mean excellent. #vgm5for1
I love Jake's enhancements to these old NES tunes. #vgm5for1
Kondo comin at ya with this hot new summer track #vgm5for1
I am definitely running out of clever things to write here faster than I am running out of good game music. #vgm5for1
What a great sound this game has. #vgm5for1
There is not enough NieR in this thread, dang. #vgm5for1
MORE NIER #vgm5for1
I've never played this game, but this track makes me want to. #vgm5for1
It's easy to forget how much amazing music WoW has had. #vgm5for1
This thread is teaching me that I dig Amon Tobin's work even more than I realized. #vgm5for1
This game did a neat thing where a lot of the soundtrack was rearrangements of classical or opera music. #vgm5for1
why are y'all still Liking this thread #vgm5for1
I love the somber tone this particular Civ soundtrack has. #vgm5for1
Back at it with one of the best game soundtracks ever. #vgm5for1
One of the best Final Fantasies, one of the best Final Fantasy soundtracks. These are facts. #vgm5for1
More games should include collectable shanties. #vgm5for1
I liked Legend a lot back in the day. It was a nice step in the direction Lara Croft would eventually be headed. #vgm5for1
For such a relatively blah monster fight, this theme sure is one of the best in all of Monster Hunter. #vgm5for1
I didn't much like Bravely Default, but dang some of those tunes are lovely. #vgm5for1
As NES boss themes go, this is top tier. #vgm5for1
Luigi humming his own game's theme song to himself during gameplay in a futile attempt to feel brave is just about the adorable-est thing. #vgm5for1
Have a good weekend, y'all. Don't forget to save! #vgm5for1
Monday arrives, and now my thread resumes. #vgm5for1
What the heck, let's make this Mega Man Monday. #vgm5for1
Spoiler: today's gonna be almost entirely Mega Man 2 & 3. #vgm5for1
Mega Man 2 & 3 have some of the best pieces of music ever produced by an NES sound chip. #vgm5for1
This game is DENSE with top tier NES music. #vgm5for1
I mean, even the 'stage selected' transition jingle is HOT. #vgm5for1
I've already said it, but Mega Man 2 is the game that made me start paying attention to game music. This entire thread is at least partially resulting from that. #vgm5for1
Alright, alright, I'll do the thing. #vgm5for1
NES chip Mega Man music forever. #vgm5for1
No, see, the bubble weapon makes perfect sense because #vgm5for1
So many good tunes in just one game. It's bonkers. #vgm5for1
It certainly has been a Mega Man Monday. #vgm5for1
What a neat bunch of games this was. #vgm5for1
It's not the game I wanted, but it was pretty fun all the same. #vgm5for1
Perfect Dark was so dang fun. #vgm5for1
Favorite bit of Dragon Age music right here. #vgm5for1
It's slowly dawning on me that Skyward Sword might be my favorite Zelda soundtrack, and I'm not sure how to feel. #vgm5for1
This game's soundtrack is LOADED with quality rock/metal. #vgm5for1
...and it includes a surprisingly varied range of subgenres. #vgm5for1
I gotta start speeding this up at some point... #vgm5for1
WHAT, YOU THOUGHT THIS WAS DONE? #vgm5for1
Hey look, I said something nice about an FFXIII sequel. #vgm5for1
I really enjoy Kyd's Borderlands stuff. #vgm5for1
Also ready for more Gaucamelee, hot DANG. #vgm5for1
Star Fox had a pretty rad soundtrack, on reflection. #vgm5for1
Your periodic reminder that de Blob games have some of the best game soundtracks of all time. #vgm5for1
As a proud San d'Orian, this is the sound of home. #vgm5for1
My time with WildStar was all too brief, but I enjoyed it thoroughly. Great music. Phenomenal animation, too! #vgm5for1
Dang I love this game. #vgm5for1
Mario tunes + live orchestra is the best. #vgm5for1
Smash Hype: ESCALATING #vgm5for1
This one deserves an Odin Sphere-style remaster. #vgm5for1
I'm sure I'll call this thread at some point, but what the hey, I've got some more recommendations in me. :P #vgm5for1
This thread cannot be stopped. #vgm5for1
Settle into that relaxing sound like a snuggly blanket. #vgm5for1
Maybe we call this thread done at 250... what do you think? #vgm5for1
This is one of my favorite FFXI area themes. #vgm5for1
Has this thread become a blight upon your timelines? Mute this hashtag if so! #vgm5for1
This one goes out to that Sad Sam doll, the very avatar of dedication unceasing. #vgm5for1
The thread goes ever on and on. #vgm5for1

I love the score for that final cutscene so much. Really tugs at them heartstrings. #vgm5for1
Persona 3 FES and Persona 4 REALLY need proper releases on modern platforms. #vgm5for1
Given the context of the area this plays in, the little imperfections make this one all the sweeter. #vgm5for1
Just 25 recommendations left to go! #vgm5for1
Imagine the restraint it took to not just post Persona music 50% of the time. #vgm5for1
One of the best dang tracks on the NES right here. #vgm5for1
I don't know what a Groovitron is, but darn if this tune isn't fun. #vgm5for1
This sure has been a thread, though. #vgm5for1
