Scariest Video Game Music?

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Scariest Video Game Music?

Music in games is an important part of establishing atmosphere and feel, especially if we're talking feelings of dread and uneasiness.

I'm speaking, of course, of the scariest music tracks in games. Any games, really. This thread isn't restricted to just horror games.

Resident Evil: Mansion Basement

Metroid Fusion: SA-X

Super Paper Mario: River Twygz Bed

Pokemon Red & Blue: Lavender Town

Final Fantasy VII: Headless Shinra (Don't know if it's the exact name)

That's only scary if you know when it plays.

Eh, I'd have gone with the Shadow Temple/Bottom of The Well theme from Ocarina of Time:

Or the Final Hours theme from Majora's Mask:

Anyway, here's Misty Menace from Donkey Kong Country:

Although I always found it more mysterious than scary.

I agree on Final Hours from Majora's Mask, that one is INSANE!



Gameplay > Graphics

Substance > Style

Art Direction > Realism

I don't think any video game music has ever scared me before.

Recently, I played Metroid, and the music was a little unsettling in its simplicity. It is a lot different from other NES games.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

Secret Area is a good choice, but Norfair Theme is more sinister than scary.

Here's the Witch's theme from Left 4 Dead.

Destroyah's theme from Godzilla Unleashed.

Opening to Hell from Doom II.

Metamorphosis from Metal Slug 2.

Also, can someone please move the thread to Gaming Discussion? I put it in Nintendo Discussion by mistake.
