Well, it’s that time again! Yes, more video game music. As you can see, I’ve had some experience in creating blogs that involve such music.

Many of you might remember these posts back in 2009, perhaps you don’t. I think that there needs to be a new blog with more new video game songs that I like! I tried to make all the songs in this blog different from what I posted in the past, and hopefully I've done okay. Remember that these songs are in no particular order of favorites or anything. It’s just 30 songs that I like in video games. As always share your favorites too, and recommend me songs if you wish!! I love to listen to new things! Enjoy the music! And, Hello Mister Pie. =-P

Only one Super Mario Galaxy song on there?  I would put the whole soundtrack on there.   :P
 
Anyways, great list.

Posted by MetalGearSunny

No, I did not pay him to put Everlong on that list. I swear to god.

Posted by Tireyo
@JJOR64: Thank you! And usually when I make lists, I try not to list a game more than once. I like a little variety.
Posted by Tireyo
@Metal_Gear_Sunny: You are guilty of introducing me to that song. = - P I liked it, so I put it up there!!
Posted by asian_pride

Nice list, although the links to your past blogs aren't working. :(

Posted by Tireyo
@asian_pride: Oh! Thanks for noticing! Well, I'm going to see if I can fix that shortly.
Posted by asian_pride

Yeah no problem. It is weird seeing a Foo fighters song in there though. But I almost forgot it was in Rock Band so it counts :P

Again, I did not pay him to do it. I did not.

The ones I did listen to: 
 
16. The Asari pole dancers go so well with this song. 
17. <3 F Zero X 
24. A nice relaxing tune 
26. Not bad 
29. I really liked this one. Beethoven for the win. 
 
Also, this song is amazing:

Hey, no worries. Everlong is an awesome song.
Posted by Tireyo
@asian_pride: Links should be fixed now.
 
@natetodamax:
I like that song! Thank you for the recommendation. Definitely right up my alley.
Posted by asian_pride

Thanks.
 
Hey maybe you can check out some of the Japanese style tracks from Okami. I don't know if that's your thing though.

Edited by Tireyo
@asian_pride: The Okami Soundtrack isn't really too bad! I listened to a few songs. There were some good and not so good ones. The songs listed are pretty much where I park myself at on Youtube, because I like music! Especially Video Game Music.
Posted by Marz

gah... i get so pumped when i listen to the Starfox Corneria song....

Posted by asian_pride
@Tireyo643: Yeah definitely. Video Game music is what I listen to more often than the mainstream stuff.

Now thats what im talking about Ho

Edited by PenguinDoctor

I'm pretty sure putting in Everlong is cheating.  I realize it is in a video game, but that doesn't really make it video game music.  Nice list though, I like 17.  F-Zero X had an awesome soundtrack.
Posted by Tireyo
@Pie: Only for you baby. Haha.
Posted by Tireyo
@PenguinDoctor: Thanks, and I put Everlong on the list because it is in a game, and it is music!! LOL.

 Halo 2 has one of my favourite gaming moments ever. When you go into that room, and theres tons of dudes there and then they play this song, you just want to shoot everything. It's incredible.
 
EDIT: And plus it's made by Breaking Benjamin so it's bound to be awesome, even though it's used in every single montage ever.
 

Posted by Tireyo
@EpicBenjamin: The Halo franchise always did have nice soundtracks.
Posted by Claude

I love Moonlight Sonata, but it always reminds me of the movie called Elephant.
Posted by Tireyo
@Claude: I have to say, the Moonlight Sonata was a surprise to me when I found it. Ever since, I found that song, I loved it. = - P Too bad Beethoven wasn't famous for making Moonlight Sonata.

This isn't directly video game music, however I found this amazing guitarist who is inspired by a lot of classic video games - I think you can kinda feel it when you listen to this. His name is Ewan Dobson... pretty good and not really that well known.

@LtColJaxson: Now he isn't too bad! I have a hard time relating what he played to a specific video game though. It does sound like something that would be in a video game, in a western type atmosphere.

The Rogue Warrior end credits song is the best video game song of all time.

Posted by Tireyo
@amarriner: Thank you very much for sharing. I will provide feedback later on what I think. I've heard the Clock Town theme. = - P I feel like I'm in some sort of circus when I listen to that song.
