My favourite pieces of in-game music

After looking through my friend's  soundtrack, I thought to myself and the beautiful music pieces I have heard in game. Some, you may know straight off the bat. Some, you might have forgotten. Some are, in my opinion, the best pieces of music within a game ever. I'm pretty sure one of these has the best soundtracks within a game, just not sure which one.
 

Let's start off with a ninja song. No, not Ayane

 
 
  Apart from being my favourite game of the Genesis and one of my favourites of all time, Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master had an awesome soundtrack. Listening to this whilst on a horse shooting rapid fast ninjas with kunai and dodging random fences whilst gaining lives and powerups and avoiding spears and shuriken is mad crazy, but awesome.  If you haven't played this game, do so. The rest of the soundtrack is great as well-just not as good as any of the others
 

How about some HYPE

 
 
  The piece I've chosen is regarded by many as the worst piece from Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix-but I beg to differ. Maybe it's because I never played Street Fighter II (GASP) and didn't hear Vega's original music, but this, I thought, was fantastic music. Great game as well (though my friends think it's horrible). Although, the guitar solo in the song below should be pretty damn hyped, too. In fact, screw that-the next song is the best song in SSFIITHDR.
 
 
 
  Clamato Fever-the very definition of getting hype.
 

How about some Rock N Roll now?

 
 
 
Now this game was great. Whilst it took me forever to find this game again, mainly because its name was so obvious that I thought it couldn't be this game, it was well worth it, just for this song.
 

SEGA had something to say about this as well...

 
 
  Whilst the soundtrack was nowhere near as good as Rock 'N' Roll Racing, the main theme was still effin' ace.
 

Techno Time!

 
 
  Whilst not in any console game I know, it is in a fair amount of flash games, and it is technorgasmic.
 

Now for some of the best lesser-know soundtrack music, like, ever

 
 
  Completely different from every other song on this, a very sad and emotional song. If you get something Naruto, chances are you get good music as well-and this game is no exception. Hopefully the sequel (which has been announced-thanks for the heads up xyzygy) will continue this amazing score. There are more upbeat songs to this fighting game, and this one was from the end credits. One of my favourite PS3 games, one of my favourite fighting games, my favourite fighting anime game-this game wins a lot of rewards from myself.  
 

Newer Music: Another ninja enters the stage!

 
 
 
  It's kind of hard to choose one from DOA2's sound track, because all of it is pretty good. I guess the reason I put Ayane's track is to keep the crowd happy and probably also because it is the first DOA2 track I had heard.
 

Does this count as in-game music? It doesn't matter. This song is epic.

 
 
 
  Thanks to vidiot for this awesome tune. Mass Effect 2 is starting to get me worried. Every game that has not come out on the PS3 I've been fine with-I don't really need Halo 3, and whilst Gears of War does look hella awesome, I've already played it. But this game-this game is making me irritated as to how awesome it seems to be. And this launch trailer tune is outstanding. As in, actually outstanding. The word 'epic' is not one I use lightly-but it is the only way I can truely convey my feelings towards this song.
 
 I might put in another update-I'll be sure to inform you guys if I do.


Ah, Good Times.

 
 
  Whenever we went into the Velvet Room in the ER, I'd always try and listen to this song, because I love it. It's pretty grand and fits very well with the Velvet Room theme.
 

Let's get some more modern hype in here, shall we?

 
 
  Whilst I enjoy the HDR version more, this version is very good as well. A lot of people didn't like the HDRemix version of Vega because they felt that it didn't fit with him and his fighting. Capcom obviously listened and came up with this. And it's great.

@dbz1995: 
Its the concept of experimental music having the roots with composers. It can range a perimeter synthesizer tune.. in movies specially its soundtracks.

The first Street Fighter song was awesome.

i am glad to see ParagonX9 up there.  
 
good list, my sir, but it fails right away because 
 
1.) you declined the appearance of Ayane 
2.) there is no ayane  
 
i am awaiting you to edit this blog to meet my standards.

I did put in Ayane in there as part of my title. WHAT ELSE MUST I DO TO SATISFY YOU?

I want an image of Ayane, or even better, Ayane's DOA2 theme. 
 
either one, or both will satisfy me. CHOP CHOP.

Updated! I have added two more themes onto this list of musical awesomeness.
