Final Fantasy 7...composed by Uematsu Nobuo.

I'm usually disappointed by videogame music anywhere outside the context of a videogame. Sometimes I'll really enjoy the music in a game, download/rip it from somewhere and put it on my MP3 player, then I hear it on a bus or something and think "wait a minute, this is shit".

>>5 That is because when you are playing a game or watching a movie music is the catalyst that evokes the emotion of the game.
a lot of times when you here just the song after playing the game and it is not the same feeling it is because the music
was composed to help evoke the right feeling for the game.
a lot of the time it is the visual link that makes music better.
for example, the sound of an ominous choir. Just the osund alone might not be that great. but, now picture yourself in a grand hall filled with the flickering light of burning torches.
add a touch of danger brought by the villinous creature silhouetted by pale moon light.
Blood dripping slightly form the end of his blade.
(In my head this would be a cut scene to a battle)
Now the sound of the choir turns from ominous to a fully orchistraited panoply of anger and hatred to give purpose, a burn desire for the creature to taste your blade.

That is why music in games does not always sound the greatest after you have or have not played the game. It is the catalyst to emotion in the game.

Excuse me for being a music asshole here, but Nobuo Uematsu, in my opinion has only a few memorable songs out of his extensive collection. :/ Most of it goes in one ear and out the other.

13 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2006-08-02 22:50 ID:PKqZBmaI

Nobuo Uematsu peaked with FF6 everything has been downhill from there. he should not be allowed near orchrestras.

Silent Hill 2
Tenchu Kurenai
some of the more recent Armored Core games
Resident Evil Outbreak

S.S.T. Band/B-Univ make the best arcade racing music. Daytona, Outrun, SCUD race, and so many other Sega games.

Rival Schools is the best fighting game from Capcom, period.

"Nobuo Uematsu peaked with FF6 everything has been downhill from there. he should not be allowed near orchrestras"

Ouch dude,what gives you the right to pass such harsh judgement out on his work? Unless you've been as successful as he has, and are able to come up with a way to re-invent similar tunes for similar games every 2/3 years, I think you need to be a little more understanding!

How about Sega's "Michael Jackson Moonwalker".....

No? then Yuzo Koshiro deserves a mention.

25 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2006-08-12 19:30 ID:Heaven

Koshiro Yuzo did Wangan Midnight Maximum Tunes.

26 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2006-08-14 15:18 ID:JC8zsTtD

Koshiro Yuzo was a pupil of Hisaishi Jo.
Hisaishi is famous for Ghibuli movie's music.

We can find a lot in common.

Alex Brandon for the soundtrack to Deus Ex.

It was pretty amazing for its time, and still is.

Jeff Van Dyck. He's done loads.

I don't think it's possible for instrumental music to be "pedo."
If it is, link/torrent plz.

51 Name: Kurono : 2008-05-02 14:45 ID:fIeySCPK

Chiyako Fukuda(.hack). Just because no one has mentioned him. Though other of my faves include Yasunori Mitsuda(Chrono,Xenogears), Kow Ohtani(Shadow of the Colossus), Akira Yamaoka(Silent Hill). Not to fond of Nobuo Uematsu and Koji Konda but I like some of there songs.

52 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2008-05-02 15:27 ID:Heaven

Akira Yamaoka <3
His solo album is great too. Very diverse.
