I’ve been thinking since yesterday about which games have my favourite soundtracks. I think this may be the list:
- Final Fantasy VI – SNES
- Super Mario Bros. – NES
- We Love Katamari – PS2
- Super Mario Galaxy – Wii
- Tetris – Game Boy
- OutRun – Arcade
- Shenmue – Dreamcast
- The Legend Of Zelda – NES
- Sonic The Hedgehog – MegaDrive
Funny that some of my favourite music-based games haven’t made the list – such as Rez, Space Channel 5, Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan, Bit.Trip Beat. Also, a lot of classic Nintendo – in those cases I think I like the music more than the games themselves!
I realise I am one away from a top ten. But I’m not sure what else to include – the following I don’t think are worthy but are great: Daytona USA, Tony Hawk’s Skateboarding, Crazy Taxi, Ikaruga, Metroid Prime Pinball (only Metroid game I’ve played!), Flower, Shatter, Canabalt.
Actually, Canabalt may be good enough to get in the top ten – I just can’t remember how it goes!
