How have we not had a Nier song in here yet?

No Mitsuda either?

For shame.

No matter what anyone's opinion is of Xenosaga (I liked it), that is one hell of a final battle theme.

And, this one always puts me in a better mood, even if it isn't quite a game song...

Can we post songs not actually in games but related to games? Because I just ran into something that's... whoa.

Know what? it is a disgrace that we have a thread about badass game music and neither:

Bionic Commando: Rearmed



Nor Hotline Miami:



Have gotten any love whatsoever, they're awesome soundtracks (Even more amazing in the case of Bionic Commando since it's just a slight remix of the NES soundtrack)

Completely agree re: Bionic Commando. I remember happy days spent as a child banging out music from this and Shadowgate on the family baby grand. Those old 8-bit soundtracks were remarkable, full of unsung glory remembered only by people who were there.

I actually liked both the completely gonzo 3D Bionic Commando released a few years ago for the X360 and the (objectively superior)BC: Rearmed reimagining from GRIN. God rest ye.

Know what else I loved back in the day? Ninja Gaiden on the NES. How appropos then that its unknown composer has just released a NEW (2015???) album.

http://www.usgamer.net/articles/listen- ... -new-album

If you'd told me in 1987 that when I was pushing 40 I'd be listening to tracks from Ninja Gaiden that I'd originally taped on an old monural cassette tape recorder that I held up to the TV in my mother's sewing room, I wouldn't have believed you. That's a thing that happened BTW. I think I had Ninja Gaiden on one side and Street Fighter 2020 on the other.

So young, and yet... so much resemblance to my current incarnation. Do people really change?

Diggin' these tunes.

I love the Lisa soundtrack. Really great game, too. Lots of weird songs.
