2nd overworld

That is indeed a very good overworld track.
FFIV's overworld theme is still my absolute favorite of all overworld themes, though.

I can't believe how good Tecmo Secret of the Stars OST was

I feel like the music in the Pokemon games doesn't get enough credit.  Those games have massive soundtracks that have all been consistently good.  And if you listen to them, this is not simplistic 3-chord compositions.  This is complexly composed music here. 

Even the chiptune music created for the Game Boy games, the Trainer Battle theme in Pokemon Gold/Silver/Crystal has more dynamics and changes in a couple of minutes than I've seen in some bands' entire albums:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JbCtVIDMEAs (The lick at the 1:05 mark has been stuck in my head for years now.)

Am I the only one who doesn't dig chiptunes?   Even with how great some songs are... otherwise FF Legend II would be my favorite OST ever

Did you listen to the two I listed at the bottom of that post, where live musicians play those tunes?

I don't care much for chiptunes, either.  Original 16-bit music can be great, but modern chiptune compositions tend to be overdone and lack the charm of their ancestors.

I agree with this. When it comes to chiptunes, less is usually more.

I can (and do) appreciate chip tunes, but you wouldn't find me bumpin' 'em in my car, or anything. Well... except for this one album I have, which is 8-bit chip tunes mixed with metal-style drumming. Pretty cool.
I would assume a large part of the appreciation of chip tunes in general comes from age...

Thunder Force II for Genesis was a great game with incredible music.  The title theme is still one of my all time favorites.  Here is a link to the title theme and the YouTube playlist of the game's soundtrack.
