I don't understand why some people don't give Video Game music the respect they deserve. Just as much effort was put into composing music for a video game as was put in for an album. Just because it belongs in a video game doesn't make it any less than it is. Some of my favorite video game music comes from The Legend of Zelda series. Thank you Koji Kondo!! If you agree that video games have some great music, favorite. Also comment to share where some of your favorite music comes from.
The excellent music of Wind Waker is my childhood and I only recently got into Pokemon, especially the first 2 generations. Some of the songs have 2 or 3 melodies and a complex baseline*. That's more than you hear today, even if they didn't simulate instruments.
*Sometimes the 3rd melody (only 3 sound channels for notes)
I strongly agree. It often takes more effort to make video game music more than today's effort to make music. I listen to Touhou and Kirby music all the time! Even one song on repeat! Video game music are my kind of genre. Ivideo game music!
I have to agree on this because video game music is actually the only type of music I can enjoy listening to. My favorite musics are from Koji Kondo and Camelot (I think their music composer is Sakuraba? from Golden Sun).
Yay~! I'm listening to Touhou music RIGHT NOW! Koishi's theme! [link] TBH I think that it would fit someone like Mimikins! Think about it! Yeah...I'm weird like that... But it also fits Koishi too. I listen to VG music more than "regular music" sometimes!
Final Fantasy music is my all time video game music to listen to and I really love listening to Zelda music, and Mario songs as well! Video game music is what I listen to most of the time and I enjoy it!
