I've been playing the original Mass Effect again (because I'm an insane person) and as you all probably know by now, the title screen music is incredible. There's nothing better than a game that has such a memorable theme which can invoke memories from the game every time you hear it. So, what are your favorites? And why do you love them?
What's your favorite title screen music?
Metroid Prime is a good one I nearly forgot about.
There's Fez, even though I never stayed on the title screen long enough to hear it despite it being mentioned as awesome on the Bombcast too.
Kerbal Space Program always puts me in the mood for rocketry.
Going further back, Psycho Pinball was kinda awesome in its own dumb way.
And speaking of dumb... and even older... Zynaps. Just because it seemed more like an experiment to see how many ridiculous noises the soundchip could make than a song.
There's really a few answers to this... IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER....
1. Demon's Souls (just very good about making the moment matter, even in the intro.)
2. Earthbound (I can still envision the entire thing in my head.)
3. Evil genius: ("Don't be such a damn fool perkins!")
C64 version of Short Circuit. Which El Bargo's? "Who's Johnny." that was used in the ....except the c64 sounds waaaay much better,
How ever to be utterly honest. Phantasy Star 2. It sends goosebumps of joy up my spine listening to it.
Cannon Fodders intro/title is also awesome.
The Amiga version has full lyrics.
While the Snes version couldn't....so instead used death noises to go with the music.
Ah shit. There is so many.
Such as Rainbow Six Rogue Spear.
Pretty much every single intro from a Dragon Ball Z game. Mainly Talking about the original intros from the games of the last 10 years. Budokai and Tenkaichi.
Oh shit yeah...forgot. Nearly one dude had done all the music for all the Dragon Ball games....turned out he plagiarised like hell with all the music he did.
Also really all the phantasy star rpgs before Online.
My favourite title screen themes?
Definitely has to be the following:
Persona 4 (OP mentioned it)
Metal Gear Solid 2
Grand Theft Auto 2
The first three Tony Hawk Pro Skater games have some great menu music
(Linked to avoid huge ass post)
My all time favorite is Quest for Glroy I's theme - and I mean the old-school EGA version. For some reason, the timing on the VGA one just seemed off.
My other favorits include Leisure Suit Larry I (the 1991 version, though 7 had a great theme too), Final Fantasy VII, Chuck Rock, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Saint's Row 3, and Halo 3. Phew. There are a ton more and I might pop back in and add some.
I can't be the only person who's played this, right?
I don't even listen to music, and tend to ignore it in games. (Which somehow gives me an advantage in Rhythm games by going off visual queues rather than listening to the beat)
However, this thing got stuck in my head for weeks.
@akyho: Glad to see you're a Phantasy duder. :)
But... I give you all... Exhibit A, DX...
The only game I have everknown to make it's title screen music available as DLC to play in-game....
AND DON'T SAY IT'S NOT THE TITLE MUSIC BECAUSE WE ALL KNOW WHAT MATTERSAHGRHRGHJGAGJHJKHGKJGH\\\
