    So what's your favorite video game music?

    Guidelines:
    • Song must have been in a game. If it is a remix and has never been in a game, it's not welcome in this thread.
    • Spoiler tags if you're posting more than one video, please. (GUIDELINE CHANGED DUE TO LAG ISSUES WITH MULTIPLE VIDEOS IN ONE PAGE)
    • Using videos? Please list all the songs at the bottom, and from what game they are from. With some videos, the title doesn't show up for some reason.
    • ....Forgot to mention this, but you ARE allowed to list songs that are from hacks or fan games or whatever. Because those are still games, and the songs in them count as songs that were in games.

    The entire OST of Nier http://www.youtube.c...2F9F647A86EA5AE

    It's worth mentioning that I love the entire Chrono Trigger OST.

    If you're posting more than one video, it should be in a spoiler.
    My computer just lagged the hell out, which is why I hate threads like this because I can never enter them without lag.

    After playing Xenosaga again, it's reconfirmed my love for this

    even though it's the ONLY battle theme apart from probably the last battle, it's still my favourite from any game.

    Meh...I feel like I've done this too many times. Oh well, music is one of my favorite aspects about a game, so here goes.
    Note that this isn't all of them, I didn't feel like thinking up the favorite of my favorites, so this is just some of them.

    Would everyone who posted more than one video please edit the videos to be in spoiler tags? prowler_ is right. It DOES get laggy when so many videos are trying to load on one page.

    The OCRemix version wasn't in any game...

    Should it matter? There are some pretty amazing remixes out there, many created by the original composers and some that even outclass/build upon their originals.

    This thread pops up and dies too often, lol. I should just make a copy/paste thing for when it does...

    Anyway, i'm far too lazy to post everything but, a good chunk of Valkyria Chronicles OST is fantastic, and all of Nier's soundtrack basically makes for the greatest OST i've ever heard while playing a game.
    Then a definite mention to Touhou games, which also seem to have an overall fantastic soundtrack (all of them).
    Emotionally, Clannad definitely gets some major points. A very good amount of the emotional sway is through the music. Family Project as well.

    Clannad: Fuko's Theme

    Family Project: Seashell

    Family Project: Dandelion

    Nier: Kaine (escape)

    Valkyria Chronicles: We Are Squad 7

    In reality It was...Gutzalpus' version is just played on a real piano making it sound so much more compelling. It's not been remixed in the traditional sense, more re-arranged.
