I'm surprised that nobody's made one of these yet. Better late than never, I suppose.
How about I kick it off with a track out of something I've been recently playing, now that it's finally out in the US?
So wonderful...it even makes me want to stop at the title screen for a bit before continuing onward with the game itself sometimes. There's also a great Iwata Asks interview on Xenoblade that goes into detail on how the game's soundtrack was created, among other things.
And while I know it's practically a rule for JRPGs to have great music (seriously, I have a hard time thinking of a JRPG that DOESN'T have a good soundtrack), Xenoblade still stands out here. Not that I'd expect any less out of people like Yoko Shimomura (she was responsible for the soundtracks to Street Fighter II and Legend of Mana, after all), but they clearly haven't lost their touch.
Anyone else have some notable video game tracks they'd like to bring up in here? Genre doesn't matter, as long as it's from a game of some kind. Age doesn't matter, either; I'm also quite fond of good NES, SNES, Genesis, and other chiptune/synthesized game music tracks.
