Hey PokéLounge, I thought I'd post this here as I find it pretty interesting.
Do you have any favourite video game music? Some video games have very good soundtracks that really enhance the gaming experience, whether it be adding emotional depth, changing the atmosphere, or getting you pulse racing for a particularly special boss fight.
My favourite game soundtracks have to be:
Spoiler:Deus Ex: Human Revolution- Icarus (Main Theme)
Spoiler:Pokémon Platinum Version- Giratina Battle Music
Spoiler:Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes- Lord Bloodcrown Battle Theme
So, what do you guys like?

I have to go with The Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess. I absolutely love the orchestrated themes of this game. I'm glad they countinued going this path with LoZ Skyward Sword the Super Mario Galaxy games.

I have to say that my favorite soundtrack of all time has to go to Donkey Kong Country 2. The songs from the game are some of the most played songs on my iTunes and even my Ipod.
A lot of the main Mario series games have great soundtracks as well.

LoZ series, MGS series (especially), and the final fantasy series have great game music. My favorite soundtrack though is the theme of simon belmont in castlevania 4.
But the way, im back, so yay.

Fallout: New Vegas had an EXCELLENT soundtrack, what with that evolving/changing music mechanic that builds up and down the background music's intensity as the action builds up and dies down.
The music of the Mass Effect series is one of the main reasons why the series is so amazing. The music almost always hits home as a masterpiece(even if some other things don't).
I'm going to assume that Brutal Legend is disqualified since it uses, for want of a better term, real-world music.

Another video game I'd like to mention is Fallout 3. Everything from the ambient music that plays in the overworld to the retro tunes that play in your radio are excellent.
Not to mention the level up tune is my ringtone.

...and that's it.

The Mega Man series - 2, 3, 9 and the first 3 X games in particular - has *bleep*ing sick music.
Other picks? Brutal Legend, Chrono Trigger, Dark Cloud, Earthworm Jim, Journey, Nier, Pokemon RSE, Resonance Of Fate, the Sonic The Hedgehog series and Split/Second. A lot of Capcom and Konami's NES and SNES games could also fit here.

Spoiler:The Stilshrine of Miriam
Just to name a couple. Both of these themes bring out the calm side of me like no other.

When I play handheld games I never have the music on. The only exceptions to that are when I play Final Fantasy Dissidia 012 or The World Ends With You. TWEWY has the best soundtrack of any game personally. As far as console games go Final Fantasy 13 had an amazing soundtrack but that's the only game that really comes up in my head. I'll follow up with some links later.

...No mention of the Sonic franchise? Seriously? If there is something that Sega and Sonic Team has managed to keep (nearly) consistent in their games, it's the music. Hell, even Sonic 06 in all of its crappiness had great music:
Spoiler:Flame Core (Volcano)
Spoiler:Wave Ocean (The Inlet)
Spoiler:Solaris Phase 2
Spoiler:Tropical Jungle (The Jungle, Swamp)
And this only scratches the surface
