lazygecko Posted July 1, 2008 Report Share Posted July 1, 2008 After browsing numerous forums and watching "best game music" threads pop up every month with the same shit listed over and over, I thought I'd make an effort to catalouge the worst aural offenders in games. Once I have enough material I'll pick the 10 worst ones and make a fancy YouTube presentation. So far my nominees are: A Boy and his Blob: This makes Banana Phone sound like Chopin. Cruis'n USA: Would have picked Daytona USA, but the constipated Elvis impersonator trumps it on every level. Mega Man 2 (Game Boy): I have no idea if the composer intentionally tried to pursue some avant garde disharmonic statement here. Doom (32x): I know it's not easy to get the most out of the YM chip, but this sounds just like they hastily ran the MIDI files through a converter and didn't even bother to manually touch them up afterwards. Which makes sense given that the entire game was one big rush job. There is lots to pick from some of the post-16bit Sega games, but I don't want them stealing too much thunder so I'd have to settle for just one or two. There's plenty of horrid Nu Metal shit from the Sonic games. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
