Sometimes i'm in the mood to just do a normie thread. I was talking about music with some friends yesterday so i want to do this now.
Starting from number 1, my favorite ost in gaming is:
Chrono cross is just a weird and special game. It has a lot of weird concepts that dont always work, but there will be never something that will be like it again. The build up and payoff in this song alone made me want to play it. It was, also, the last game i played before adulthood.
Megaman x kinda went off rails over the years, but in this game they tried to give everything an ending and you can feel in the athmosphere. It's not as good as the game that precedes it, but this is probably the best song you could make to be representative of best friends fighting to the death. Even if its not that serious and their reasons to fight are dumb, but that's besides the point.
This is probably the perfect way to start a game, it somehow fits with the nonsensical dreamy athmosphere of the game, and every time i hear it i remember why i like the series. To me it's not about being epic,or saving the world or killing ganon. Is about being invested in a world that feels like its worth looking into, and meeting people that you care about and want to help. And this game does that while being a parody of how it happens in other games. Its such a special game.
Chrono trigger music being here is the most uncontroversial thing ever, so i dont need to justify it. All i'll say is that mitsuda knows how to create moody background music with an orchestra that doesnt feel generic, which is not an easy thing to do.
This one is just what i think when i hear the word castlevania. Even if dracula x is not that good compared to rondo of blood, i actually prefer how this song plays here, because they did some very nice things with the snes synth. Everyone also praises the bassline, but yeah,its super good.
So you can post yours here too, and you can post more than 5, whatever. I'll post more later too maybe.
