What’s up guys? I’m feeling a little nostalgic at the moment and wanted to toss out there for discussion not a Top 5 or Best 5, but Your 5. I’ll share mine with a little trip down memory lane. While it may come as a shock that I haven’t played hundreds of games, the ones I have I’ve played to death.
Honorable Mention: Talon Theme (“Final Fantasy Legends 3″)
Ok, so it’s actually SaGa 3, and I can guarantee you I had no idea what the hell I was doing in this game. But come on look at that title for the video! Seriously though there were plenty of nights where I’d be settling in to sleep, I’d pop in FFL3, get in the Talon, and just listen to the music as I began to doze off.
#5 vs. Culex (Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars)
“I am matter. I am anti-matter.” I am fracking done you’re awesome Culex I don’t even care if you’re not from FF4 and you have their battle music in a Mario game. The first time I remember coming across Culex I thought it was the most badass music around.
#4 Route 1 (Pokemon Red/Blue)
Man screw trying to collect all them Pokemon cards as an 11 year old, setting out on my own Pokemon adventure was so much better! After selecting Squirtle as my starter (because Charmander is for losers, and LMAO Bulbasaur) I began an adventure where I’ve sunk over 1000 hours over 15 years across 6 generations of Pokemon and it all began on this Route.
#3 Torvus Bog (Metroid Prime 2: Echoes)
Fell in love with the it the first time I heard it. Don’t care if I was 15-16. This is another one of those pieces of music that I would just let play on the TV while I worked on homework or something else. It’s so relaxing, and reminds me of much simpler times. Ah the good ole’ days.
#2 Zero’s Theme (Megaman X2)
You want to talk about a game I could beat in my sleep? Well here you go. It was my 6th birthday when I got this. The other two kids that lived on my street (who I kind of have a real life side-quest to re-connect with someday…) and I played X2 just about every afternoon after school. I mentioned simpler times with Torvus Bog, but it doesn’t get much simpler than a 6 year old playing Megaman with his two best friends…
#1 Hyrule Theme (The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past)
Unless it’s playing Zelda with those same two friends as a 5 year old! While it might not be the “best” (Wind Waker) or most “iconic” (Legend of Zelda) Hyrule theme, it’s “my” Hyrule theme. We spent hours upon hours and summers upon summers playing ALttP. Somehow I lost it after they moved to Florida, but as a young teenager it became the first game I bought off of eBay. It’s because of them that I became the video game/anime nerd I grew up to be, and the ALttP is the game that started it all.
So anyway, I’m interested in what everyone else has to say or add!
