Long before Gears of War, Cliff Bleszinski was designing games such as the one below, of which has fantastic music:

Many are familiar with Jesper Kyd's work in games like the Assassin's Creed series, but few have heard his earlier work such as in this old Sega Genesis game:

2nd link = I love the distinctive sound of a genesis game done right

From about 14 years ago, back in an era when Origin was making great games: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vMN9NhYjzl4

And the Genesis' take on a great song from Disney's best animated film (listen to the SNES version for lulz): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ppVSBTd5gCo

The castle theme in the original Dragon Warrior has always been my favorite:

I found myself remember the Mechwarrior 2 soundtrack.

Great game... great tunes

I still prefer the originals a lot more  then the  remakes and the lunatic festa osts are arranged,  not exactly what you hear in game.
Arranged version of the battle theme  from the cd that came with the collector's edition of Silver Star Story for the PS1

overworld 2 arrange

I can see why you like them I just prefer the originals.

The Persona 1 & 2 OSTs have a very specific mid/late 90s feel to them, that is outdated, yet at the same time I love.
I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.
