I got the idea for this thread while reminiscing about some of my favorite video games, which is to say a time when playing video games was such a large part of my life that I would scour the web endlessly searching for mp3s of my favorite tunes. ((I remember KHInsider used to be the spot for video game OSTs...and while I haven't checked it in years, I would be pleasantly surprised if they're still kicking.))

Anyhow, what I'd like is if any of you fine folk would like to share a song from a video game that you feel is personally "iconic". No, not the theme song or most popular video game songs out there (unless those tracks are what you did personally feel a great affinity to!) -- just a song from a game that really stuck with you, for whatever reason (and if you do have a reason, please do feel free to share as well :smile: )

My personal pick of the litter is from Golden Sun - Battle: Saturos


Well, Motoi Sakuraba (the composer) is a genius in my humble opinion, and it is hard to single out a favorite work of his, much less from the Golden Sun franchise. This song was featured a boss battle, one where I was legitimately shaking in my shoes because I wasn't expecting to fight one of the main antagonists so early on. But it turned out I had overleveled, so in the end these fears were utterly unfounded. Short-lived as the battle was, the battle song still permanently seared itself into my brain for how dang cool it was, and how epically the scene was set for the battle. If you are unfamiliar with the series, it is a really great JRPG that really pushed the limits of the GameBoy Advance in clever and inventive ways that honestly still astound me even now. Your mileage may vary with the storytelling style, but the battle system and animations are very noteworthy -- graphics are incredibly gorgeous, and still stand the test of time to this day.

With that all aside, please feel free to share your iconic video game tune of choice!

hmm, there are so many good songs out there, i'm going to nominate two! :-P i think these two songs stick out in my mind because they're both songs that are made up of bits n pieces of the rest of the OST/game sounds, like a last hoorah. and i just think its cool hehe

to one with life from monster hunter 3(tri~) really encapsulates the whole vibe of monster hunter to me, it’s like the second song i’ll think of after proof of a hero if monster hunter comes up. the theme of jamaa township will also forever be ingrained in my memory, i spent so much time on animal jam as a kid! (not to even mentioned that gecko can can)

It goes without saying that this thread needs the Elder Scrolls Theme  :happy:

(Here is the Oblivion version, I will accept that the Skyrim version might be better known, but this is just a nice version!)

I think the very first Professor Layton theme is as iconic as it gets.

to stay on brand for me, stardust speedway b mix from sonic cd is one of my favorite game songs ever so i consider that one to be particularly iconic.

otherwise I guess to go wayyyy back and get more personal with it, i would say animal crossing gamecube's 3pm theme is particularly iconic for me :] i think that was just the time of day i used to play as a kid the most. i've spent so many hours on the original gamecube animal crossing throughout my life lol

I love Stardust Speedway Bad Future too!! There's sooooo many iconic Sonic songs but the first one that came to mind for me (besides main themes or character themes) was actually Be Cool, Be Wild and Be Groovy, the track from the snowboarding section in Sonic Adventure's Ice Cap! I always look forward to reaching this part of the level and the music gets me so excited to snowboard down the mountain and hit all the trick ramps!

But there's so many others from this game alone... Like the Egg Carrier theme! Or the Beta Mk2 boss theme, or Station Square's theme... It's impossible for me to choose just one and its taking all my willpower not to just link the entire soundtrack lmao. That's not even getting into any other games!! There's so many great soundtracks out there!

you're SO right, the sonic adventure soundtrack will always be particularly amazing and so many sonic games have such good soundtracks. whoever works on a sonic game's soundtrack is just obligated to go crazy with it i guess! xP i love it though
