an obvious choice, but that certainly doesn't disqualify it from being an excellent one lol

i haven't reexamined mario's discography thoroughly enough to know whether it's really the single greatest piece of music in the series, but it's certainly up there


i think i've figured it out:

[spoiler]Can you believe this game is over ten years old? putindisapproves;[/spoiler]


this is what i would've said. the observatory theme is probably my single favorite piece of music that nintendo has created in the past decade lol (wait galaxy is 11 years old actually fuck)

for pokemon:

X/Y's music overall was only decent for the franchise, but for this champion theme they really went all-out. it replaced Lance's theme for my favorite song from the franchise.

for castlevania:

i often say castlevania 3's "riddle" is my favorite, but tbh simon's theme is where it's really at

Samus Aran

also, ok, so donkey kong country 2 has my favorite ost in video game history. and i've never been able to say which one is my favorite for very long - my choice is always changing. it used to be "in a snow-bound land," then it was "flight of the zinger"...but at this point, i think i honestly have to agree with the masses and say that the best, complete package truly is "stickerbrush symphony."

but i think it says a lot about this game's soundtrack when my top 5 (stickerbrush, snow-bound, zinger, mining melancholy, hot head bop) are all NEARLY equal in how fucking amazing they are. and goddamn lockjaw's locker and forest interlude are also SO GOOD now that i think about it

anyway this is my post for the donkey kong franchise i guess

Samus Aran

for kirby it's also extremely hard. i don't know if anyone here really feels as strongly about kirby as i do but i honestly believe that HAL has created some of the best video game soundtracks ever with these games. the series seriously has so many perfect songs. you could knock the kirby series for constantly re-using music, but i think that the way HAL is always remixing older tracks and re-using them really cranks up the nostalgia factor and helps make kirby games as cozy as they are

ultimately, i have to give it up to dreamland 3. best art style, best musical style. and this one in particular would have to be my pick for best in the franchise:

kaz, do you find aquatic ambiance to be overrated? befuddlement

Samus Aran

also super hard to pick for metroid lmao. tec, your choice is VERY good, probably my second favorite song in super metroid. my top has to be this though:

which i guess is probably also my favorite song in the franchise befuddlement

prime 1's ost is almost as good as super's, though. chozo ruins theme, phendrana drifts, tallon iv depths, underwater frigate theme. all amazing. but none of them are as good as the best stuff from super.

no!! i love that track to death, it's my second favorite song from dkc1. my favorite would be "life in the mines." "fear factory" also rules. dkc1's ost is also very very good, but overall it's just a little too much ambience and not enough melody for me personally. i feel like dkc2's strikes a much better balance and is far more memorable.

Samus Aran

tales series. fucking FIGHTING OF THE SPIRIT it doesn't get any better than that. whether you want the symphonia version of the super famicom phantasia original, both are amazing.

for final fantasy, i always used to say terra's theme from ffvi was my favorite. but at this point i think this is actually my favorite:

good opinion, good post

Big Goop

I actually think aquatic ambience has a great melody, the only issue being that the intro and buildup lasts too long... the "ambient" part, I suppose

Thyme

but you know what yeah i think i'd go with stickerbrush symphony as well

tho i'm also v. partial to one you surprisingly didn't mention:
in the air tonight bayou boogie


idk what i'd pick for star fox, the first two games have a lot of great tracks
