    Well here i was sitting on my bed packing my things for i am moving soon... and i hit my old video games music cd collection... and i listened to them all.. i was in a trance. Wich got me wondering, wich is the bets? Was very hard for me to choose... but i ended up picking Wild Arms's Into The Wilderness, the intro to the first game... I don't know why but this song always felt like the perfect intro song, was in the spirits of the represented world, sounded pretty damn good for that time, early psx days with a fully orchestrated intro hooah! So let me know fellow game players, wich is your best???

    maybe not the best, but the launch day of f zero gx, i got it home, started it up...

    after seeing for the first time the SEGA and Nintendo logos together, my head almost exploded form the music and graphics of the intro!!!

    killer instinct SNES also had a great intro song!

    Metal Gear Solid 2 if you're talking about the pre-game cinematic you get before the "Press start screen"

    Shadow of the Beast on Amiga, intro music, lvel one music ...etc.
    Turrican music was cool
    Also on Amiga : Cryptoburners demo, "Klisje paa klisje"
    Hopefully you have winamp or equivalent that plays ".mod")

    I love the original Mystic Quest GB (Seiken Densetsu/Final Fantasy Adventures) theme 'Rising Sun'. The 'Premium Arrange Version' of it on the 'Shinyaku Seiken Densetsu - Premium Soundtrack' bonus disc was even better. My own personal all time favourite!

    Sword of Mana - Premium Soundtrack (at play-asia.com)

    Agreed.
    But FFX's is a great one too!
    "Road to Zanarkand" kicks some serious Zanarkadian butt.

    QFT, there was another game that had a really great intro but I can't remember [​IMG]. Of course I have to say that Gyakuten Saiban also has great music [​IMG].
