    Just wondering if anyone has any in-game tunes which they occasionally remember randomly and then get stuck in their mind. Maybe you remember because it was just your favourite game, or the music represented an epic scene in the game etc.

    For me this crops up in the brain sometimes...

    "Duuuu du du, du du du du du du..."

    If they EVER actually end up re-making FF7 with modern day graphics. They can clearly update those Midi tracks, probably with proper orchestras recorded in high quality, but they best leave the main tune of Jenova alone! Add some electro to jazz it up..

    I always hear this song in my head when riding my bike



    And this song still brings a tear to my eye; it's so full of hope. The perfect theme for a new beginning.



    Actually, every single song in those games is epic.

    Everyone time I have to jump over anything, pick up any coins, or eat any mushrooms this will play in my head without fail. Too bad there aren't any real life Goombas to jump on

    This is always in my head, perhaps because I used to play Resident Evil 2 all the time when I was younger.

    Quite a few of the songs have had a revamp from Nobuo Uematsu and the Black Mages. Some are better than others, and I'm not quite so keen on J-E-N-O-V-A...



    Some also got done up for Advent Children when that was released back in 2005, such as Tifa's Theme being made into a proper piano solo, and I love that version...it's one of two Final Fantasy VII songs on my iPhone, along with the original game version of One Winged Angel (what else? ). I've also got Suteki Da Ne and Otherworld from Final Fantasy X, and *cough* Real Emotion from Final Fantasy X-2 :ninja:


    From the Black Mages versions of the VII songs, One Winged Angel and Those Who Fight Further are two of the better pieces they re-worked in my opinion...Those Who Fight Further is brilliant :suith:

    This thread has brought back the memories. Resi Evil 2, Pokemon and Halo. :clap2:

    This is one theme that always comes to mind. I used to listen to this every time I played Far Cry and now fills me with anticipation for Far Cry 3, which can't come out soon enough.



    Another favourite of mine. I actually kept a save file in Rex's Lair so that I could listen to this theme whenever I wanted.



    Me and my Dad used to love listening to (and watching) this back in the day:



    And no list of mine would be complete without a good old Resident Evil 'escape' theme:

    I don't know if y'all will recognise this game, but UN Squadron had some amazing tunes.
    Scratch that, it only had amazing tunes.

    I didn't even play this one myself, I only ever watched my brother play it.

    Final Fantasy X, which I've mentioned in a few threads. SSX 3 had some great songs on it and got me in to Placebo at one point.
