What're your favorite 8-bit soundtracks?


#1

I must admit i’ve always love the tracks we heard on all those ninja gaiden games on the NES and the wonderful 8-bit sound effects on excitebike, but until the other day i hadn’t really thought about the quality of 8-bit soundtracks as a singularity as opposed to BGM in an NES game.

I’ve always loved the soundtrack to Megaman 9 personally, and downloaded it the other day and now can’t stop listening to it!

What about you guys, anyone else a sucker for these awesomely collaborated MIDI tracks? If so, what are some of your favourites?

Anything Capcom and Konami made during the NES days were pretty much gold.

Castlevania and Ninja Gaiden had excellent complex themes for games back then, but Super Mario Bros has the most classic themes of all.
