Final Fantasy stuff, Earthbound soundtrack (so nice & quirky), haven't been able to get into anything from games made in the past 6 or 7 years. :(

The best soundtrack to any game in history has to be Terminator on Sega CD. Nothing beats it. Hell, any track you pick from that game is better than any song on any Top 10/100 songs on the radio these days.

Am a big fan of game music. Some of my favorites:

Shenmue (the Orchestral version is even better):

Final Fantasy 8

Knights of Honor:

And undoubtedly the video game song with the most versions:

"Stones" from the Ultima series:

Too many to mention. :shock: Unless you want me to make a list? :P I collect game music from retro systems and have a couple of thousand tunes on my phone/MP3 player to listen to at work. I'm always adding new ones too. In fact, with that in mind, I probably spend more time listening to old games than I do actually playing them! :o

Funnily enough, me & Rinoa were talking about this at the RCM meetup over the weekend, and I mentioned that the Bubble Bobble tune is addictive and catchy .... not to mention, I've had odd looks from people as I've been sat there whistling/humming the Bubble Bobble tune :lol:

That's absolutely true.
I like very much to whistle while I work or walk; I know it's not a very nice habit - but I try to restrain myself if someone is around. I am quite good at it anyway and sometimes my colleagues ask me what's that catchy tune that I am performing.
Along with Bubble Bobble's theme (properly introduced), my favourite jingles and tunes are: Dig Dug, New Zeland Story, Pengo (ok, it's a cover...), Rainbow Island (ok, it's a cover too.... :D ), Pac-Mania, the elevator music from System Shock, The Incredible Machine soundtrack (old PC game, recently updated), a few Leisure Suit Larry tunes (main theme and the bossa from the third chapter mainly), Zoids, Space Quest, Outrun (of course!...), Ghoul's and Ghosts (level 2) and a few others that are now eluding me.

I found my favourite in-game music today in an Indie Game on the 360 called "I MAED A G4ME W1TH ZOMB1IES IN1T". :D

The game's a Robotron-esque twin stick shooter, it costs 80 Microsoft Points. The soundtrack is absolute class and had me laughing out loud. In future years it will be hailed as an audio classic.

The old Phantasy Star game music I love to bits. At first it made me feel like tearing my ears off but I got really used to the bips and boops and just love them to bits now.
