30 Day Game Music Challenge

Recommended Posts

Aerith’s theme is the obvious choice here but 

a) I’ve already picked from FFVII

b) I like to think there’s a little bit of positivity in it. Yes, it’s sad and mournful, but also quietly uplifting and triumphant  

 

Day 12 - music that makes you sad

Shadow of the Colossus - Prologue

 


The SotC main title theme, like the forbidden lands themselves, is full of sorrow and loneliness, and yet still sounds truly beautiful.

Day 12 - Music that makes you sad

 

To The Moon - Once Upon a Memory (Piano) (Laura Shigihara)

 

I'm not getting teary thinking about this game, you're getting teary thinking about this game.

Day 13 - Music you like from a game you don't like

 

A King's Tale: Final Fantasy XV - Bedtime Story

 

Yes, exactly: everyone either forgot that this game existed, or they've only just found out about it - the true hallmark of a game nobody likes. I think this was a bonus game thrown in with certain FFXV pre-orders, and then it was released to everyone a little while later. The game was as forgettable as any freebie bonus, but there were still some decent tunes in there...

Day 13 - music from a game you don't like

 

 

I've never particularly enjoyed the Soul Reaver games, the actual game part always felt lacking to me, but this track stolen from Information Society is a banger.

Day 13 - Music you like from a game you don't like

The Last of Us - All Gone (No Escape) (Gustavo Santaolalla)

 

The advantage of having excellent taste in games is that you get to listen to an awful lot of good music associated with games you dislike. Of course, the downside is that you end up with music that you enjoy being tainted by association; a few pieces of TLOU's soundtrack would happily find their way into one of my relaxed/downbeat playlists, if it weren't for the fact that hearing them transports me back to the joyless experience of playing mediocre hide and seek with zombies while Children of Men - Extra-Murderous Sad Dad Edition plays out.

Day 10 - Music that makes you sad - still drawing an absolute blank for two days now on something for this so will have to come back to this in the future.

 

Day 11 - Music you like from a game you do not like

 

Cannon Fodder feels overly finicky and dodging attacks infuriating. Like the style but the reality of playing it, it's not for me.

Day 13. Music from a game you do not like.

I hated this as a kid after the brilliant first game.

Day 14 - Music featuring vocals

 

Devil May Cry V - Devil Trigger

 

I was actually finding it pretty hard to settle on one track for today (even after submitting my only Persona tune) but I guess I can take a break from my RPG love-in for one day. Great as a standalone track, but it works really well with the dynamism offered by the style rankings... :wub:

Day 14 - music featuring vocals

 

As so many tracks I've submitted have vocals I've chosen something that I discovered from being a fan of the vocalist rather than through the game:

Day 14 - Music Featuring Vocals

 

Sayonara Wild Hearts - Mine (Daniel Olsén, Jonathan Eng, Linnea Olsson)

 

I mean, I could have picked any of the tracks from Sayonara Wild Hearts that are sung by Linnea Olsson, frankly. A great pop album disguised as a video game.

One of the coolest games of all time. Soundtrack is killer throughout.

Day 15 - Boss battle music

 

Guardian Heroes - Rough and Ready (Norio Hanzawa, aka. NON)

 

I've seen this given different titles, but Rough and Ready appears to the be more commonly applied one. Either way, this is optional mini-boss Valgar's theme from Guardian Heroes, and like every song in that game it's a bop.

Somewhat ironically, the above counts as music I dislike from a game that I like. Not so much because I dislike the song outright, it just bothers me how much it lifts from Afterburner II's theme. Get your own damn songs! *shakes fist at Nintendo/Argonaut*

Haha, good Lord I've never heard that! Pretty blatant, the cheeky buggers.

I could have gone for this too but I think I’d end up with choice paralysis; the finale alone has up to three candidates depending on how you classify “boss” ;)
