Yes please. I'm going to assign points based on rankings.

And yes, it would be soundtracks as a whole. Although you can weight them anyway you want...maybe one track is good enough to give one a high ranking? Works for me. *shrug*

Also, FF 1 and 2 are seperate games and this would count as a compilation...You can only nominate one (FF1 or FF2) in a single slot.

OK, I limited Gradius Arcade Soundtracks to simply Gradius.  And as for leaving off the Ys III redbook, I put Felghana #2.  They're so similar that I didn't think it would be wise to include them both.

allyourbaseare May 27, 2008

I'm compiling my list right now - I'll post it later.  Coming up with 20 IN ORDER seems to be somewhat of a challenge.

Jodo Kast May 27, 2008 (edited May 27, 2008)

This list refers to the original music. I purposely tried to be fair to different styles, but I can't help the fact I focused on certain series or composers.

1. Castlevania IV
2. Castlevania III
3. Castlevania II
4. Castlevania
5. CV: Bloodlines
6. CV: Symphony of the Night
7. Dracula X
8. CV: Dawn of Sorrow
9. Mega Man 2
10. Mega Man 3
11. Street Fighter II
12. Ys
13. Ys II
14. Streets of Rage
15. Streets of Rage II
16. Sorcerian
17. Rayforce
18. Kaiser Knuckle
19. Guilty Gear X (Dreamcast OST)
20. Guilty Gear XX: Korean version
21. Madara
22. Lagrange Point
23. Gradius III
24. Turok 2: Seeds of Evil
25. Spider (Playstation)
26. Phantasy Star
27. Zavas
28. Star Ocean 3
29. Contra 3
30. Snatcher

P.S.

These are excluded from receiving points, but are worth mentioning: Castlevania II: Belmont's Revenge, Xak III, FF (series), Chrono Trigger, Insector X, Double Dragon I & II, Ninja Gaiden I & II, Metal Gear (series), Legend of Zelda (series), Super Mario Bros. (series), Blaster Master, Batman (NES version), Lifeforce, Brandish I & II, Legend of Xanadu, Ys III, Ys IV, etc. etc. etc.

You can see some of the sacrifices I made while making the top 30. I edited the post because I had initially made a top 20, so I changed it to a top 30.

Hmm, the melodies are similar but the rhythm, pace and style are just so different... to me as albums they are hardly alike.

allyourbaseare May 27, 2008

Okay, this is probably the best I could come up with.  Really, I would have listed them as "Tied for top 10", "Tied for top 20", and "Tied for top 30".  There's no way I could accurately put the music which has touched me so deeply for most of my life into an accurate list. 

1.  SaGa Frontier II
2.  Chrono Trigger
3.  Final Fantasy IV
4.  Unlimited Saga
5.  Chrono Cross
6.  Final Fantasy VI
7.  Dew Prism/Threads of Fate
8.  Salamander 2 OST
9.  Seiken Densetsu 2 OST
10.  Seiken Densetsu 3 OST
11.  Final Fantasy XII
12.  Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest
13.  Earthbound
14.  Terranigma OST (even though a good chunk of the audio is missing)
15.  Sonic the Hedgehog OGA
16.  Silent Hill 2
17.  Illusion of Gaia
18.  Mystic Quest Starring Mickey Mouse OGA (no soundtrack release unfortunately...)
19.  Sonic the Hedgehog 2 OGA
20.  Katamari Damacy (Katamari Fortissimo Damacy)
21.  Mushihimesama OST
22.  Lemmings 3D Redbook Audio
23.  Megaman 8 (Game Rip, not the horrible release)
24.  Baten Kaitos:  Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean
25.  Blaster Master OGA
26.  Shadow of the Colossus OST
27.  Musashiden II Blademaster
28.  Atelier Iris 3: Grand Fantasm
29.  Sonic Adventure 2 OST
30.  Super Monkey Ball 2 (Game Rip)


There.  I'm done with it.

I'm not familiar with the music from the games you mentioned. I really don't know that much about vgm, considering there are at least 30,000 soundtracks I have not listened to. I only know about the 1,200 or so I have listened to.

Shoe May 28, 2008 (edited May 28, 2008)

Battle of Olympus was the greatest Zelda II knock-off to ever grace the ROM chips of the NES!!

Bit heavy on the ol' Konami arrangement albums but what the heck. Other than the arrangements I've noted the chosen format of the multiformat soundtracks. A few very tough exclusions along the way!

That's the idea...It should be a bitch for everyone. It'll just give more meaning to the final tallies.

I'm actually glad I'm not as knee-deep into VGM as I was, because this made the stuff I still constantly listen to stick out more, even if it meant cutting back on the RPG soundtracks (which is why my list ended up so arrange-heavy).

Right, I think I'm finally ready to post this badboy.  Goldfish, lemme know if there's any questionable selections; specifically, am I allowed to use "Genso Suikoden II OGS Complete Box" and "Viewtiful Joe + Viewtiful Joe 2 Original Soundtrack," seeing as how they were both single releases?

Other than that, hopefully little to no preferential changing edits will be required.
