I thought that since this board is about games, then perhaps we daily could share with each other some interesting songs. Whether it will be an original song from the OST, a cover or remix or anything else, it's all welcome.

I will start with a song titled Battling Robots from Evoland 2 game.

None of these are from an official game, but an artist by the name of MrModez Pineapple has made some amazingly good Spyro tracks for various fan game projects. These are my personal favourites:

I remember this thread existing on the old forum. Anywho, one of my favorite composers for gaming has always been Motoi Sakuraba, simply for the variety of ways he can pull interesting and emotional works off of almost any instrument. And I would be remiss if I brought up Sakuraba and did not mention Baten Kaitos' OST, which is considered one of his best ever. EVER. He's also done the OSTs for a ridiculous proportion of Tri-Ace/Tri-Crescendo games (Star Ocean, Valkyrie Profile, Eternal Sonata, and Resonance of Fate are a few I could mention), as well as the Tales series, the Mario Golf/Tennis games (?!) and the Golden Sun series, among others. And he's been ridiculously good in all the ones I've heard. Hell, he's even done things like a Metal arrangement of Gourmet Race (Gourmet Race being among the most iconic Kirby songs) and it's AWESOME! But seriously, if you're ever looking for an OST to just sit down and listen through, Baten Kaitos and Baten Kaitos Origins is gonna be one of my top pics. As a taste, here is the battle theme from Baten Kaitos.

I'm curious, does anyone else have any games where the OST is nice to listen to in-game, but isn't as good outside of it? For example, I find Doom 2016 to have an awesome OST in-game, but I find it hard to listen to outside of it, mostly because the tracks are far too long and also very repetitive within.

If ya'll want the greatest OST ever created in the history of gaming, just look to NieR: Automata.

You're welcome.

Also Tino, Silver Will is pretty good, but there are better songs in Trails in the Sky to pick.

What I find most impressive about this OST is the fact they came up with a completely new language to sing in certain songs that sounds like a real language and not just a load of gibberish you'd expect from someone if you asked them to fake a language on the spot or pretend to know how another real language sounds.

Yes, the amount of effort they put into the OST for that game, along with how perfect they made the songs to fit the atmosphere of the game, makes it the best OST ever.

I can't think of one game that can even come close to using music as well as Automata. Music is games should add to the moment. You want music that makes a suspenseful moment even more suspenseful, or a sad moment even more sad. They nailed it 100% perfectly in Automata. Every song during every scene just adds so much to the game.

Yoko Taro with a budget (which he never got for Drakengard or the first NieR game) might just be the best thing the video game industry ever saw.

The nostalgia this track gives me is far too high and might be higher than any other game soundtrack I've listened to:



I love and yet hate when I get into a trip on memory lane about this series. Doh

Civilization V has excellent production values in general - and, that extends to the OSTs. Each civilization in the game has not one, but two theme tunes: one for when they're at peace, and one for when they're at war.

They're universally excellent, and it's hard for me to pick a favourite, so I'll just pick one example of a Peace theme that I like, and one example of a War theme that I like

Funny reading this since now Yoko Taro did get a budget for a remake of the first NieR game. ROFL
On that subject, was there new music made for Replicant and if so, was it on par to the Automata OST?

Anyway, for why I'm randomly in here again, I've had Tekken OST's stuck in my head since yesterday for no reason, in particular stuff from Tekken Tag Tournament. XD
King's stage seems to be the one sticking in my head the most, so I guess I'll share it:



Also, special shoutout to the School theme, which also got an epic remix for TTT2. Grin
