Too many to list em all but here are a few that still really stand out.

Starting off with what was at the time, freaking mind blowing. The game had some awesome story (to a like, 8 year old) and some unforgettable tunes.

The greatest intro hands down. The music and the animating up a building to find Megaman up top was freaking incredible

I have no idea why, but this song stuck with me over the years. The introductory melody especially.

I think heavy reliance on catchy melodies makes it so that the majority of my most memorable music came from the NES era. There's a handful of SNES game music that has stuck with me also and less and less as you move through to more recent games. Strong melodies are what really hook me. Most everything by Koji Kondo (Mario, Zelda, StarFox) and nobuo uematsu (Final Fantasy) are also seared into my brain. Man, I love classical game music =P

Also, wanna throw out there that like 90% of both Capcom and Konami's music from the NES days are gold. Megaman, Castlevania, Contra, Street Fighter etc. . .

For my nostalgia money, The Journeyman Project has one of the most unforgettable soundtracks of any game I've ever played.

Sick guitar riffs, bro!

Cid's theme from Final Fantasy 7.

I have to say the main theme from the MGS series.

Best title screen song ever? It's close.

There must have been dozens of threads like this one, and I always spend close to an hour listening to everything.

I'd have to go with a couple of the tracks from Top Gear on the SNES, damn do those stick around.

Other than that I think I'd have to give a mention to the opening theme to Monkey Island.

Halo theme. That will never leave me.

I find myself humming this in my head every few weeks. My favorite theme song of the Commodore era.

Off the top of my head: Whistle Theme from Deadly Premonition, and the Game Over, Torch Theme, and Main Theme from Shadowgate.

Pretty much the entire Chrono Trigger soundtrack

Way too many, most of them would be posted here anyway so I'd like to share one of the most obscure ones. Hell, I didn't like the game that much when it came out, in fact I don't remember one thing about the gameplay besides a weird minigame where you had to throw axes at a girl's head so you would cut her pigtails, but the music in this piece seared the intro into my brain for all eternity.

Every time I see the phrase "video game music" I think of the opening music to Mega Man 2.

#173 Posted by Nux (2305 posts) -

The over world theme from A Link to The Past, most of the songs in Ocarina of Time, the world 1-1 theme from NES mario, and most of the soundtrack from Alan Wake and Personas 3 and 4.

#174 Posted by BillyTheKid (484 posts) -

Mega Man 2 and Mega Man 3 the entire thing I pretty much know by heart. Flash Man's stage in particular is something that will never leave me. It is just a great beat.
