Rick Rosay and Wiz Kalifah sampled chrono trigger in some of their songs. I think it wins by default

Its soundtrack fits and sets the mood of the game superbly well, but having it in my music library I can say that apart from maybe 2-3 tracks, the music is nothing special when listened to on its own.
>>
>>260069474

At least 3/4 of the soundtrack is memorable.

None of the above. It's either SimCity or Extra Innings.
It's an anime baseball game. Look it up weebs.

How is SFC best sounds.

Dancing Mad is good organs.

Tales of Fantasia for sample singing.

Broad consideration of how OP use "soundtrack" even Star Ocean for voice acting?
>>
>>260072279

The original Castlevania had the best music.

Vampire Killer, Heart of Fire and Wicked Child are all legendary.

Bloody Tears is elder god tier as well, but that's it Simon's Quest to offer.

Where the fuck is earthbound?

I agree, but this song is also awesome.

Honestly I would rank Bloody Tears higher than VK.

That's why I'm conflicted when it comes to Simon's Quest. It's not a good (though admittedly innovate) game by any means, but the music is so fucking good.
>>
>>260072589
>>260072279
all the music in castlevania is fucking god tier, but SCV4 has the best music overall, great remixes, and great original music

also draculas curse had the best nes music
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=78706bv98S8
>>
>>260073149

CV3 did shit with the music capabilites of an NES cart that shouldn't have been possible. It's beyond god and devil tier.
>>
>>260073039
>Honestly I would rank Bloody Tears higher than VK

As would I, but I'd take Wicked Child + Heart of Fire + Vampire Killer over Bloody Tears by itself.

Simon's Quest had like... 7 tracks in total. The only one that stands out is Bloody Tears.
>>
>>260073149
You could at least post the Famicom version. Also, I think SCV 4's soundtrack is kinda bad.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ptgaCJSF7j8

>>260073451
still pissed i never got to play the famicom version, the soundtrack is fucking beyond god tier, and gameplay wise its better as well
>>
>>260073294

Don't forget that CV3's Japanese soundtrack is supposedly better.

Though I can't really remember any CV3 tracks other than Riddle.
>>
>>260073662
You can emulate, ya know. There's even an English fan translation for the small amount of text in the game. The biggest difference between the two versions aside from music is that the JP version is easier.

It is. Emulate the jp version and see for yourself. Not like CV needs to be in english to be played.
>>
>>260073730
aquarius, riddle, beginning, clockwork
easily some of the best music in the entire series

It's called the VRC6 as shown in the title. The different design of the NES didn't allow for stuff like that to be used or something to that effect.

I'm so pathetic. I can't even read the name of this game without getting upset. This was my ex-bf's favorite game. I remember playing it for the first time and he would help me when I got lost. He had a great memory and played so many times that all I had to do was say, "I'm stuck at the one part with the thing" and he'd know exactly what I was talking about and how to guide me through it. We bonded so much over it that now I can't see any reference to the game without thinking of him.

FF5 had some god awful tracks. But what's good is among the best in the series.
>>
>>260077540
good, great even by 16 bit standards but too cheesy. Also, there are better entries on the list, Megaman X in particular has a solid all around OST

Rondo of Blood had great music too

Rondo of Blood is for the PC Engine, but I agree the soundtrack is god theme.

Richter is best Belmont

this is great, but if we're going to NES music, albeit cliched this has to come up:

and this one too:
http://youtu.be/U2kTeh7FNl0?list=PL5B01BDBBF4783C7A

Megaman music was always top tier until 32 bit consoles and cd quality music came up, even so MMX4's OST was still pretty good
>>
>>260082249

Protoman's Theme is by far the greatest track in the NES library.

They did wizardry with the system's limitations.
>>
>>260082693

One of the best NES tracks as well:

Each of those are good for different reasons, but overall it's a three way tie between LTTP, Super Metroid, and FF6. Best composition goes to Final Fantasy Mystic Quest though.
>>
I'm very upset to see that there are no Kirby games on this list OP. Educate yourself to some of the greatest musical compositions of our time:

Fuck both of you. I looked up Bloody Tears expecting something amazing and instead got a decent track.
