Its always amusing seeing musically-uncultured lil gamer kids react to video game music that sounds like 'real world music'. Like, these kids hear a deep house song in a video game and go commenting on the YouTube upload like "This sounds like funky/disco/club/porno music whoa", hitting everything but the target. Its like, easy there kid, its just house. There's a whole world of it outside of video games.

I think that AVGN II: ASSimilation probably has my favorite game soundtrack in recent memory. It's got an 8-bit/chiptune feel to it, but it really suits the game and levels, and even sounds good outside of the game. There's usually like 3 songs that sound kinda similar based on what world you're in, like the Security Breach stages. Even the tutorial stage has good music, and sounds kinda like the AVGN theme.

Silent Hill 4's soundtrack turned out to be even better than what I expected. There's so many great songs, both instrumental and vocal.

So I'm just wondering does anyone have any idea if there is any music by Matt Uelmen that isn't like Diablo or Torchlight related? He also did music for Justice League Task Force, but besides that he has no music anywhere that I can find. Like I love his work and he's obviously talented if not genius at creating ambience. Where the hell is all the other stuff he has done? Like is this just a secondary job/hobby thing for him? It blows my mind he doesn't have like 50 albums.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matt_Uelmen

Above is his wiki page and sure enough there's just the game stuff he has done. I refuse to believe this is all he has ever put out but where is it then? I'm baffled. Like it says he's a sound designer and well that's fine but what are the things he has worked on then? What sounds did he help design? What the hell is going on?

Raw Fish Rampage is seriously one of my favorite songs from a video game. I love it so much.

Hey @Maq, was i the one to introduce you to the ost of AVGN games? laffo

Either way, the first game also had some gems here and there:

 

But more on topic-ish, i recently found a game called Knuckle Sandwich and its ost is proving to be something wild:

I listened to some music from Song of the Sea, one of my favourite movies, and realized it gives off a similar vibe as the soundtrack of Wind Waker. A lot of Celtic and classical elements are present in both, and while WW's is entirely instrumental, the songs with lyrics from the film all capture the same oceanic themes.

Try watching the game's credits roll (remember to mute it) while hearing the piece below;

Don't you agree it's a great match? Both the choice of instruments and the lyrics sound appropriate. If only the cutscene with the bubbles ended at the same time as the song, it'd really be amazing.

 I'd like to discuss Bomberman Hero's soundtrack, because it is amazing.

 

 

 

Therr's something so, so good about the soundtrack that I can't put my finger on... the whole thing. But one unused track stands out.

 

 

 

 

I adore this song and it's one of my favorite VG songs period. It's hardly even Bomberman (it wasn't originally produced for the game) but it's so magical and ethereal.

 

Also the song names are funny. The final boss music is called Landlord... for some reason.

Trying to decipher the gibberish language in Splatoon is pretty darn fun. I am fairly certain their vocalists did slip actual English into some of their songs, too.

The start of the chorus sounds like, "Mom's on the menu. You'll understand." to me.

Not technically video game music, but any game theme in which the titular antagonist demands that you give him your money deserves a mention.
