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?

Mass Effect

Persona 4

Persona 3

L.A. Noire

Hotline Miami, I don't care for the song by itself but it is a very memorable title screen and the song makes it better.

Probably Final Fantasy XIII, even though the game isn't necessarily my favorite.

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.

Hotline Miami nails it for tone alone. Such a great, mellow track.

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.)

Lastly,

3. Evil genius: ("Don't be such a damn fool perkins!")

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.

"Dearly Beloved" the Kingdom Hearts Title music really gets to me. Not totally sure why, but it's a damn pretty song.

And this is absolutely not anyone's favorite, but a title screen music thread can't pass without going on a little ride...

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.

Mass Effect, L.A. Noire, Persona 3 & 4 and Metal Gear Solid 2 come to mind. MGS 2 has been the most recent example of a menu theme that I really enjoyed. Fits the tone of the game remarkably well.

This song haunted my dreams when I was addicted to this game for that first year when I was playing it at least 8 hours a day every day.

It's the "best."

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.

One of my favorites is Tenchu: Stealth Assassins. I really liked the premise of the game and music. It's too bad that franchise has never evolved into better games.

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....
