The first Video Game that I remember having hypnotic music was Need For Speed 3: Hot Pursuit on the Playstation. This music played in between races as you were llining up the cars and the tracks.... Late at night, after 2am.... you just get into another world with NFS3!

It was the first, and it still is special to me to day, although I haven't actually played NFS:3 in a long while.

The first game that I bought a CD soundtrack to was the original Medal of Honor.

Ecco had insane music. :D

I love Final Fantasy music as well, Nobuo Uematsu is kind of a genius.

But really theres only 3 games who's soundtracks I actually listen to pretty regularly: Legend Of Zelda - Ocarina of Time(best zelda OST), Sonic The Hedgehog 2 (best sonic OST), and Killer7 (which is probably the best of them all; it's such an underrated work of art).

I'm a video game music nerd. Trying not to explode all over this thread.

Edit: I never played Final Fantasy VI before, but I just started recently. I was totally fucking impressed by this games version of the Prelude theme (which is in just about every FF game in some way or another). I think this might be my favorite version. http://youtube.com/watch?v=q_XS0aNy53U It's fucking amazing.

Tony Hawk games all had good soundtracks.

Also, Pokemon Game Boy games ruled.

Not really.

Yes really.

I found out about lots of punk and metal bands through THPS games.

And dammit if the Poke Center theme isn't the catchiest melody ever.

KOJI KONDO i think is one of the best computer games composers. He's the man behind most of the Super Mario and Legend Of Zelda games

Try this one (http://djpretzel.web.aplus.net/songs/Final_Fantasy_7_FinalEcstasy_OC_ReMix.mp3), it's a guitar cover of the FF7 version. :cool:

Well, if we're talkin' original music, then I'm just gonna have to give it to Blizzard. The music in StarCraft, Diablo's, and especially World of Warcraft is just awesome.

Non original music, however, I will agree with the V-Rock station from Vice City.

I really love the music to the first Castlevania. Here's a link when someone's doing a speed run so all the music is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C1CbhtiY5Uw

The soundtrack to Halo 2 is also among my favourites. Here's the main theme http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8rIUVSjlwdU

Whenever I play Super Mario Bros. 3 I leave the sound off so I can listen to real music until I get to the Bowser battle. Holy fuck that track rules. The end credit music is fun too.

i always thought the terran music for starcraft was pretty sick.

and the industrial metal coundtrack for Unreal Tournament 2004 is also one of my favorites.

I've always liked Sonic music, but the shitty Knuckles rap music in Sonic Adventure 2 is quite cringeworthy.
The classics and some of the SA1 tracks (oh and the pyramid jungle whatever stage in SA2) are pretty amazing though.
