What are your top three favorite video game series music?
Mine are the following.
- Mega Man X (And other Mega Man titles)
Sonic, with these games the music just always seems to fit the mood perfectly.
Hell when I first played Sonic Adventure for the first time and fought Perfect Chaos and than BAM! This awesome song (Open your Heart) starts playing. You really feel like you’re Super Sonic.
Mega Man, The creativity, quality and just plain awesomeness from this series is astounding.
One point for me in particular was when Zero dies for the first time in X1 and you continue on to fight Sigma. This awesome song starts playing as if you’re carrying this heavy sorrow yet a purpose that must continue no matter what gets in your way, truly epic.
I’ll also mention that the intro of Mega Man Zero 2 goodness, the song alone will make you want to play this game.
Castlevania, just like with Mega Man i’ll also have to mention the creativity and quality of this series.
Honestly, it doesn’t even matter what Castlevania game you pick up because you know you’ll always hear good music from it. Super Castlevania, Castlevania 1, Castlevania SOTN, Castlevania Bloodlines, the list goes on.
I remember in SOTN when I first heard The Tragic Prince, I immediately went “Holy shit!” cause really, you just walk through a door than bam! this beautiful Guitar riff begins playing. It pretty much made missing the jumps a few times worth it due to how awesome the song is.
So, what game series music do you like?
