I'm ruling out Sonic 1, 2, 3, and Knuckles for obvious reasons.
What's your favorite Genesis/Mega Drive music?
I'm sure I wasn't the only person who used to hook a tape deck up the the Megadrive's headphone jack, and dub a game's Sound Test contents to a C-60.
I miss Sound Tests.
People tend to go for Koshiro's work on SoR, but I prefer the soundtrack he did for Revenge of Shinobi.
Also really like the music on Snatcher.
Damn, I'm surprised I forgot all about the aswome music in shinobi. Return of the ninja master got some cool tunes too. I still remember that badass intro song, and the first stage theme. It made you feel like a badass ninja going on an epic adventure.
I remember I had a few moments getting my ass kicked in this game. That one stage where you had to jump on rocks while fallen, pissed me off to an extreme. Still this was one of my favorite sega games. It would be cool to see a remake..
this piece from Combat Cars is unbelievably good. 100% of the era in pop music (techno/rave), and no chiptune band could ever hope to sound as legit. no seriously, there's like- breakbeats and stuff. and plus it's just got tons of that killer genesis buzzsaw synth.
One of my favorite tracks from one of hardest, darkest series on the system. I just adore how goddamn grim the two Ecco games are. I always envision parents buying this game for their children because, hey, a dolphin, how cute. Kid boots it up, starts swimming around with some other dolphins, weee. Then all the life gets sucked out of the ocean and the game is all like "ALL YOUR FRIENDS ARE GONE AND THE FUTURE IS BLEAK AND YOU ARE ALONE, SO ALONE."
Just the best.
