    The Video Game Music Appreciation Thread

    We all bang on about this and that music being great in other threads, well fine, stick it in here in future.
    And I've stuck it in the retro forum because it seems that most of the time the music's from past-gen games anyway.
    If possible, try to limit how many games you list per post and try to be a bit unusual if possible.
    I'll start with the following:

    Final Fantasy 6 (SNES) - OK not that unusual but personally I hate the game and can't stand the hackneyed teen angst garbage storylines and 20+ year old encounter and battle system that the FF series still peddles, but the music is sheer genius. I particularly like the boss theme, and the snowbound intro version of the overworld theme is wonderful.

    Flashback (SNES) - Not a lot of music to speak of a lot of the time, but the use of incidental music upon certain key events lent a far better atmosphere than having some faux-rock crap noodling on in the background. I've chosen the SNES version because I find the audio to be superior to the MD version, although the MD version seems to have a higher framerate in cut-scenes.

    Tomb Raider (PS) - That theme tune. Atmospheric or what?

    Your turn.

    Also: Tales of Phantasia, the theme from when you're in the forest. I know it's a version of some piece of classical music (spring from the four seasons maybe?) but it sounds so perfect for that setting with those graphics.
    And Akuma's theme from Super Turbo. This was music that let you know that this guy was dead hard and wasn't going to **** about. Shame they made it a bit pathetic for his future appearances, especially the Alpha 2 version.

    A bit busy to type out my usual essay at the moment so I'll just settle for one choice for now: Ys - any game, any format. Curiously tends to get overlooked in any discussion about game music, yet it's among the very best there is. The new Oath in Felghana OST is incredible stuff.
