What's your favourite music from a video game?


After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

Be it a single song or an entire collection, what are your favourites?

If I had to pick one, I think Final Fantasy VII's soundtrack was something special. The songs really did hold the game together and deepen the whole "mythology" of the story. It was the first game to make me realise the importance of music in a video game. (I can't think of a game where music was such a huge part of the game, before FFVII.) Nobuo Uematsu, who composed the original score, went on to conduct live orchestral versions of many of the songs, which sound fantastic when rendered with classical instruments.
