Many SNES OST pales to Genesis soundtrack actually, but there are also many better soundtracks on SNES.

I'll definitely acknowledge that the SNES generally had a better variety of games (especially RPGs), and had better graphics processing than the Sega Genesis.

But if there's any element that the Genesis clearly beat out the SNES, it was in the music processing.

I hate how Ecco on SegaCD replaced the alienesque maritime music with fucking dolphins fucking into a microphone while doing a hack job at replicating Vangelis. They also completely tossed out the kick ass theme song that perfectly captured the droning and oddness of calm but impending confusion that fused into peaking interest and adventurish tone. They lose the themeatic songs that straight make you feel the loss of your pod and how alone and the sound of danger and strength and struggle you'll go through to find them. All gone. They should have fired the fuck out of whoever signed off on it and whoever produced it.

Playing this right now, such a great game for a sadly overlooked system. The genesis did have a less capable sound chip but it wasn't about technically superiority, but how the composers utilized the strengths of each chip.

You mean had less variety. Genesis was the system with all sorts of unique and variant shit. SNES was way more formulaic and didn't even have shit that did the same thing. Even where it did formula Genesis had shit like motorcycle racing games? Fuck naw, we do it with pipes. Car racing? No we grab the back of fucking cars.
Sports games? No, skeletons ogres and chainsaws.

They both are great systems with their share of games but Genesis was all about mixing shit up.

I rented the game once when I was a little kid, I had a lot of fun with it and rented it multiple times.

Then, one day while I was playing it, my mom came downstairs sobbing, telling me that my grandma had just died. She then went back upstairs and I just kept playing all day long. This song got ingrained in my memory because of that.

Not really. The fact that it had a straight out synth made it way more capable. The fact that it was an FM synth made it way harder program on the fly and work with than people who wanted to just pitch shift samples wanted to do. You could do so much more with the Synth on the fly than you could on the SNES. It also didn't hipass filter like the SNES which let it's sound nice and clear.

It's obviously not just one genre, but overall most of the SNES's offerings were generic and formulaic and with little variety. I'm not saying that like I'm some sort of SNES basher. I notice the time clocked in both of them and what's available in the romsets and there's a lack of variation that makes up for it. It has it's share of exceptional games that it has. Hell some of the best games in gaming history are there. It's exceedingly rare to find a game of Super Metroid's caliber for example on any system. If there was going to be a game of all time, it's in the running.
>>
>>275600921
Pretty cool stuff, I didn't know about that. After doing a bit a research it seems that the LPF was there to smooth out the treble artifacts but at a cost of audio clarity.
>>
>>275601651
Honestly the only SNES games that still amaze me are Super Metroid,Megaman X and Yoshi Island 2. Everything else on the SNES just doesn't live a big impression on me anymore
>>
>>275601660
You can generally tell the better SNES music producers by the way you tend not to notice the LPF on the SNES during their music because they manage the ranges well and it doesn't sound like anythings getting muffled. Though depending on the genre it's hard to avoid it on drums on things like Snares and Hi-hats which are generally expected to go into the higher frequencies.

>Well, to each their own I guess. I find the PS2 to be a pretty dull console myself, and I suppose some would find that opinion rather strange too.

I'd agree with that as well. There are a few great games for it but I'd say overall it's library has a shit ton of shovel ware, not just generic shit. There's a lot of mediocre to bad games on the PS2 and I find it way more difficult to find good games for it than the SNES. I've searched through the library but not as good as I could have, but after scanning through pages of titles and still not finding a single decent game to try out it starts to look a bit weak. I'd say in a way it's a spiritual successor to taking the all the pros and cons of the SNES and dialing them both up to eleven, which is one more than ten. At least the PSX seemed like it had more attempts at branching out even if there was some pretty mediocre crap to come from it like blast chamber or grid runner for example.

Nah man, the reason it "sounded" worse was because the SNES was more popular and games on it had a generally higher production value and thus better composers.

Well-composed PCE blows anything on the SNES out of the water.

Yeah, I only found 8 games that I really liked on PS2. I don't know why but for some reason I found so much more on SNES. They're made in a similar vein but something about PS2's library rubs me the wrong way.

So what's your favorite console of all time? This is kind of refreshing to hear a different point of view like this. Usually everyone's answers are "PS1/PS2/SNES".

I don't really like to consider one console my favorite. Like I said, I end up playing the Genesis more often than the SNES but shit the games I love the most are on the SNES. I just round up that generation and that's really where consoles hit their stride, that was the top of console gaming more or less. They're mainstream consoles but they handled their respective generations great. The NES also has some decent titles. I kind of get a bit nostalgic for some of the Atari VCS games though - I also miss the paddle games with shit like kaboom or demon attack and warlords. That shit was furious. There were a lot of bad and mediocre games for it too, it was had a lot trying new stuff and a lot of failing and a healthy share of less than good arcade knock offs, of which I don't really consider pacman in. Yeah it's not really an accurate port of the arcade game but it plays the game more or less in the same spirit of the game even if it could have been a far more accurate port.

Yeah, was just messing with you earlier. Oh, and I agree, that is appalling. That's why this thread is kind of refreshing, we're not hearing Super Mario 64 and Legend of Mana out the ass.

Nostalgia for Atari VCS, wow. You must be older than me. I played my aunt's Atari briefly when I was just a little boy, but for the most part it all started with NES/Gameboy. I agree with you by the way, 4th generation was the peak. Even as a kid, I knew my N64 wasn't as good as my SNES (Still loved the shit out of it though).

The Gilgamesh moments and the Galuf vs Exdeath fight are some of the best moments in the entire series. They're also the reason V is my favourite.

Seriously SNES F-Zero has the best soundtrack ever. I don't know why, but I love the synthesized music from that much more than the more realistic rock music from the later games.

Port Town is awesome.

I'd say the entire OST of Super Metroid has it beat.

This game worth playing btw? I was impressed when I played the demo of it in SSB4.

>>275603361
That really is a great melody. I wish there was a remake that could capture how absolutely fucking terrifying kraid would really be.
I really hate that he kind of gets pushed to the side for Ridley. Out of both of the bosses, aside from Ridley's aggression, Kraid's shear enormity would fucking be terror personified. Being locked in a room with something of the effect of a really angry Godzilla that shoots fucking 20 foot spikes at you, who could fit you into his mouth and would absolutely crush space soldiers by simply swiping at them nevermind hitting them with his 2 foot claws.

I just can't for the life of me, like this music. It sounds too dreary and hopeless to me. I don't know what it is, but it just doesn't pick me up the way music should imo.

I want to see him in a 3D game. Shame we never got that Meta-Kraid fight like we were supposed to.

>>275607931
>It sounds too dreary and hopeless to me.

Are you aware that music can convey many different moods and still be a valid form of artistic expression? You might as well say no paintings should use blue, dark colors because they don't make you happy the way art should.

I don't think you understand what the music is doing. It's not supposed to pick you up. It's supposed to sound dreary. It's supposed to infuse the fact that you're literally inside a world of hurt, underground. The game isn't supposed to give you a fucking acid infused techno egyptian themed irish jig to dance too (http://youtu.be/B_0oKQsW-iE?t=4m29s)

Music is supposed to fit the mood, of which is not dance around.

I wouldn't mind him in a 3D game if they could make a non shitty 3D game first. It'll likely never happen though.
