"Kept you waiting, 𝘏𝘜𝘏"
Also as a great example I would give Battlefield 1 apocalypse theme as one of the most epic pieces of not just videogame music but music in general.
The Dragonborn Theme from Skyrim is another one that I can recognize easily…
Though the Halo Theme… Eh, not really. I didn't play Halo, not into 3rd person fps.
Pepsiman’s theme is a masterpiece.
My favorite game music now is war thunders
im kinda sad u only mentioned the music of Sonic The Hedgehog(1991) once
Also one of the best game themes is the half life 2 Frack "Triage at dawn."this song brings back all the counless great emotions from this game instantly…
calls toby foxu got a good theme that i prefer over marios
I play that game its called Starcraft and what is happening there
Would I rather go back to the 8-bit era? The answer is YES!
Civ 6 anyone?
I recomment you guys trying out Touhou Project. It has a really iconic music. The guys who makes them literally made the game to make music. And it's beautifull!
4:34 8 notes of hell
Literally had to sit here well after the video just to finish singing Still Alive.
Damn you! 😆
What the f!@k are you smoking when you dare to say that Simple and Clean is not memorable?!
Portal end song are litterly my 2 favorite songs in the world
Videogame music > normal music
I was never a Zelda fan but the music makes me so nostalgia because of the cartoon trailer playing before the Mario tv show
I literally screamed "Oh my god" when Still Alive began playing Nd started singing…
Hey!!! Twisted sister is great!! XP
Me who’s starting to get into fighers because of Guilty Gear’s music.
As a new person to the world of gaming, the music here is phenomenal.
