Surely I'm not the only one who listens to more video game music than anything else? These instrumental masterpieces are great because they do not distract me with lyrics while I'm trying to do homework nor do they cuss when I'm listening to them around children. So I listen to them all the freaking time. But I want to know: which ones do you love? What are your favorite game tunes?

First tell me your favorite game song. Then tell me your favorite game soundtrack. It would be preferable if you did not pull the favorite song from the favorite album just so that we can learn more about your tastes. Personally, I'm still trying to decide so I'll let you guys start! ^_^

Not including licensed soundtracks, my favourites are:

-Chrono Cross
-Silent Hill 4
-Metroid Prime
-Metroid Prime 2
-Sonic CD (Japanese soundtrack, although the American one isn't bad either)
-Final Fantasy IX
-Resident Evil 2
-STALKER: Clear Sky
-Streets of Rage 3 (I know a lot of people think it sounds frenetic and abrasive, but I quite like it)
-Braid

Favourite song in particular would be 'At the Shore of Dreams' from Chrono Cross:

Streets of rage 2 or most things by Koshiro

Hearing the tunes from NiGHTS makes me shed manly tears of joy

The Panzer dragoon series always had some good music
(The fight with the "ancient weapon" in Panzer Dragoon saga this song played)

I quite like that game. But that's a discussion to be had elsewhere.

I'm listening to the songs Prinny and NapalmBrain posted right now. Good stuff. Loving the NiGHTS theme. =P

For me...most Sonic games, all Zelda games, and most Mario games have great soundtracks. But the Halo 2 OST is the best I think. It has songs by Incubus as well as Marty O'Donnell, who is a genius I think. At least on par with Koji Kondo and Jun Senoue though they all have completely different styles. The first Metroid Prime soundtrack was also amazing. And I'm sure there are more I've forgotten. As for an individual track...

Well, it changes regularly, but one of my favorites is the Fire Emblem theme.

The NiGHTS ending song changes the better you do at the game

Love the version you get when every coarse has a "A" rank

I can't believe I forgot to mention Fallout 3's soundtrack. If you turn on the radio it's amusing and if you don't it's amazing. That one battle theme with the awesome bass riff is my absolute favorite, I'll see if I can find it on YouTube.

Never heard of that game and thusly that soundtack. What's it like?

Also, whenever I listen to Aggressive Expansion from Dark Knight I think of the main theme for Fallout 3

I don't either. And while that is appreciated I really meant the soundtrack for the purpose of this thread haha.
