Finally remembered about this thread and found the time to dig through my silly folder of original game songs.

Ristar(Genesis) had upbeat head-bopping music. The only remixes we had of that game have been removed because they were basically the original songs with instruments slapped over. They weren't bad but that's not what OCR accepts.

I think someone mentionned it already, but Sparkster/Rocket Knight Adventure(SNES and Genesis) are games that had fun music too.

Alisia Dragoon(Genesis) an action/platformer.

Assault Suit Valken(SNES) also known under the name Cybernator.


Bahamut Lagoon(SNES)

Battle Clash(SNES) Not sure if Scarab could be arranged but that's one kickass song

Battle Mania Daiginjou(Genesis)

Bounty Sword(SNES)


Brandish and Brandish 2(both SNES)

Columns III(Genesis)

Dark Half(SNES)

Der Langrisser(SNES) and its second serie Growlanser(II and III on PS1 or 2)

Dragon Slayer: Eiyuu Densetsu(Genesis)


Emerald Dragon(SNES) Some songs remind me of CT and ToP like the Caverns and Forests song.

Energy Breaker(SNES) gives me similar feelings, maybe more like Secret of Mana than ToP and CT though. It has many tracks to choose from too.

Far East of Eden Zero(SNES)


Final Mission(NES)

Front Mission 3(PS1)

Granhistoria(SNES) Mainly the Town and Field songs.

Hajimori no Mori - Forest of Beginning(SNES) The main theme comes back very often in many variations, so some songs can be eliminated. Very anime-ish sometimes.


And that's about it for the first 1/3 of my folder. I'll continue later.

PART 2! Finally. Took a few days on and off, not counting the times it took me to re-type everything. For some reason the site decided to lose my post when I asked for a final preview X(

Oh well...

Ecco - The Tides of Time(Genesis) I completely forgot to add it last time. It's totally worth a listen

The Adventure of Hourai High School(SNES) or it's original title Hourai Gakuen no Bouken! - Tenkousei Scramble

Illusion of Gaia(SNES) Needs more love

Ironsword - Wizards & Warriors 2(NES) Also needs more love

Journey to Silius(NES) MOAR I SED!

Jurrasic Park 2 - The Chaos Continues(SNES) Clearly overlooked game and soundtrack

Kabuki Rocks(SNES)

Kishin Douji Zenki(SNES)

Knights of the Round(SNES) Skip most of the boss songs, they're stupidly short anyway

Kouryu no Mimi(SNES)

Kouryudensetstu Villgust(SNES) or simply Villgust

Kyuuyaku Megami Tensei(SNES) at least for Daedalos


Last Fighter Twin(SNES)

Light Fantasy(SNES)

Live-A-Live(SNES) This game still needs more love

Majin Tensei(SNES) The Wrath of God (followed by Devil Dance) sounds like a 16-bit version of a NIN song

A game in which no one played, but has some of the best music around is called Knights in the Nightmare, by developer STiNG. It's also hands-down one of the best games on the DS I have played, period.

It has a lot of great tracks...

Well, in fact, the entire soundtrack (which comes with the game, cool!) is one great track after another.The boss fights are pretty phenomenal.

If I had to pick three to choose from, they'd be:

But there are SO many more tracks that are good in that game... Live for Revenge, Lord of Oblivion, any of the Angel songs, The Faithful One...

Really, it's like the game had one stellar track after another...

Holy crap. It's been awhile. Surprized this thread isn't closed. So, now, I've looked through every post and taken just about every name of a game you guys said. Now I'm going to try and make a small program to automaticly make videos with screenshots and audio, then put them on youtube. It's going to be a while.
