I wish everybody post they favorites up to five with links so after some time will have beautiful and large playlist to listen to , thanks
Great idea. The problem I see is some games have that one amazing song, and others have overall great music. This won't do some of them justice.
Nice idea! I really like the soundtrack from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time...it brings back so many childhood memories, hahaha.
Earthworm Jim. Tommy Tallarico FTW
Final Fantasy 7 for sure.
Don't deny it... you know you loved Sonic 2
A really awesome soundtrack is from the game: Splinter Cell Chaos Theory by Amon Tobin
Guile's theme music goes with everything
GTA Radio Stations!
Kingdom Hearts, Metal Gear Solid 3 ) and Final Fantasy X

Try to get Gran Turismo 5 soundtrack, they are amazing, IMO.
Couldn't help it, I had to post Bloody Tears from Castlevania 2, one of my favorites of all time. It always makes me fill like I can go and beat anything/anybody >:D

Halo soundrack! Great idea though!
I love the MGS4 soundtrack, too bad there is a limited amount if the soundtrack CD's out there and no legal way to get a lossless rip legally :(
If I may make a suggestion, listen to Ace Combat Zero's self-titled song. I couldn't find the best-sounding link, but here it is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2wiskH1UE4c&feature=related
nice. some of the background scores of world of warcraft are awesome too... especially ashenvale. perfect music.
also loved the sound track of Devil May Cry 3. track name is Divine hate.
Great selection of tracks!
Some of my favorites:
- The entire soundtrack of SD Snatcher
- The opening theme of the 1st Silent Hill game
- Requiem for the nameless victims (from one of the Castlevania games)
- The main theme from Pippols
Hmmmm... all Konami games :)
