It's been a long time since I've personally seen a thread like this one. Sure, it HAS been done, but I want a fresh perspective on this. People come and go on the Escapist all the time, so if I choose to start a new thread instead of using the damned search bar, sue me.

Now that that's out of the way, EPIC GAME MUSIC! =D Just post some of your favorite game music, be it old or new.

I'll start with these two little numbers, from way back in my past.



The recent release of a very related game (which isn't as good, but oh well) spurred me to go back to this game, and the music is what seriously hit my nostalgia cord. So, share time. Escapists, show me the music from your past games. What strikes a cord in you?

A classic:


To be honest, I actually prefer the Bad Company versions, but I thought the 1942 theme would be best for the thread.

*Waits for someone to complain about how that's not classic and post Monty on the Run (or equivalent) instead*

I find this to be highly epic, and I don't even like or play the game:
And now for something properly 8-bit:

Megaman 9 & 10 had solid gold soundtracks worthy of the classics from earlier in the series.

TES series has some of my favourite game music, especially the themes.

I'm not going to include the Skyrim theme, because personally I prefer Morrowind and Oblivion's themes.

Absolutely love it.


But I like Oblivion's that tiny bit more.

From what I've been reading, not technically ME2, but I don't care. Still awesome to hear this every time I visit Omega.


Oh, seems I'm the first to get to this one as well:

My favourite would probably have to come from Klonoa: Door to Phantomaile and Klonoa 2 on the Playstation and PS2 respectively. Some of the boss music was truly epic such as...

Baladium's Drive.
Cursed Leorina's Theme.
King of Sorrow's Theme.

Might add links later - but not sure.

Also for more recent music - the entire soundtrack of Super Meat Boy is awesome. :D

Considering the latest review from Yatzhee, I believe this is appropriate:
