If you like Final Fantasy Soundtracks, I strongly encourage you to track down Final Fantasy IV: Celtic Moon which is one of my favorite interpretations of that game's excellent music.

I'll post more suggestions as time goes on - I have a large collection of video game soundtracks I've bought over the years.

Also, if you have a chance to see this tour when it's in your town, DO IT. It's worth every penny.

It's been through Calgary 3 or 4 times; seen it twice. It evolves as time goes on and new games come out. The first time I went in Calgary they played One Winged Angel with Jack Wall conducting and Tommy Tallerico playing electric guitar along with the local pro orchestra. Mindblowing.

My friend Dan makes 8-bit music. He records under the name The Sticky Situation. He's the same kind of dork as you.

Meh, I'm not really into much 8-bit music. Except for Anamanaguchi. I love the shit out of them.

I was just thinking about doing a thread like this the other day.

All the Banjo-Kazooie stuff has a lot of cool chromatic and tritone stuff.



For that matter, I haven't played a game that's Rare down where I haven't completely loved the music.

I'm not sure if they use the same composer(s) often or not, but the music has always been consistently good.

And on the note of 8-bit music, everybody check out my good friend and amazing musician Nick Jenkins (under the name Mr. Jenkins). He released a really sweet 8-bit album called "8 Bits + Pieces"

Oh yeah lumps I tore my house apart looking for that Conker cartridge and I can't find it anywhere. I can't even find my N64, and I'm pretty sure the cartridge is still in the machine. :(

Banjo Kazooie/Tooie had some of the best music ever.

I pretty much only listened to Transmissions From the Satellite Heart when I was playing Banjo Kazooie.

If you every find your N64 and happen to own Banjo Kazooie, do yourself a favor and play it with the music going.

Though, I totally understand listening to other music with other games. Back in the days of playing the first Tony Hawk, I could only deal with the same six songs playing on loop for so long.

I spent more time playing Tony Hawk 2 than probably any other game ever made. Soundtrack to that one was Ween's GodWeenSatan: The Oneness and Insane Clown Posse's double album masterpiece Bizarre/Bazaar.

...don't ask.
