I used to love the music for some of the games gone by, especially the tunes of Mr David Whittaker, who used to do a lot of the Codemasters Spectrum games. I can still vividly remember the themes to things like SuperStuntman and Aliens.
Anyone else had any favourites? Anyone know where we can download these to listen to?

“Turrican 2: The Final Fight” had great music throughout. Although the ending music was just bliss.

FFVI(or III, wherever your from) had some of the best music, although I’m not a fan of FF.
I loved the music in the Ocarina of Time, it was simple MIDI but really nice.
But in all fairness Vice City has some of the best music of any game…….

As far as game music goes I think Mario games generally rule, particularily Super Mario World. Yoshi’s Theme is heavenly, check out the orchestral version on Super Smash Brothers Melee. Oh and the Doctor Mario Tune too.
Although I don’t necessarily believe it to be the greatest game music ever something has to be said about the Hyrule music from Zelda, you know when you’re out and about. Hearing it in a new Zelda game hooks me right away, like when I played the Ocarina of Time.
Or any of the Last Ninjas![/quote:13cfa8c5db]
I should try those games again, I had 1 and 3 on the C64, I remember loving them but never getting far. I could never hit that dragon with the smoke bomb at the end of the originals first tape :mad:

If you have WinAmp, you can set it up to stream the web radio, playing tunes from yester-year.
I bet most people who try it out, for nostalgic reasons, will turn it off though within about 3 tunes though ;)

Remember the follow up to The Last Ninja series? it was called Vendetta, a similar isometric 3d view with interspersed driving sections. The driving sections and the music were so good, it spawned a stand alone game, “Turbocharging”, and the music was feckin’ deadly

Vendetta was excellent!
