    Yeah, but I think I'm taking dislike for my music a little too personal. I know its irrational, but I guess that's a result of me being so passionate about music in general right now more than anything.

    Oh yeah, about VVVVVV: I bought it (yeah, I know its free online, but I wanted it directly on my computer for whatever reason), and I've played it a little from time to time. Its a pretty cool game (it really does a good job with the gravity alteration mechanics) and has a great 8 bit OST (definitely one of the best I've heard). Granted I've had the music off most of the time so I can do the project, but what I've heard was excellent.

    Jajalulu, it is not irrational. Checking the names of your playlist depending on which song you put in, will tell something about whom you are. It is pretty clear that you are investing a lot into this project, although if someone is critiquing maybe a song choice, that wouldn't be so bad. I am just assuming that you get something like: " This music is so childish" // "Why don't you listen to real music?"

    !!! Well I am relieved that you enjoyed both the game and the music, and it was not a bad investment. I went back to listen to it because I was afraid my memory was all warped up. I did not want to keep bringing it up, but I realized that the soundtrack is fantastic and you can appreciate it without playing the game.

    It looks that you have covered quite a range of categories. The only thing I could add to it is maybe doing *your* Game OST. By that I mean you make a soundtrack as it were going to be used in a game. And you pick your main title theme song, main character song, villain song, etc.

    "hosemisnuba's RPG OST"
    "hosemisnuba's Hack n' Slash OST"

    I see you have a RPG section, but with 100 RPGs to choose from that playlist might end up being 50 maybe 100 songs long. My idea would be something like this scenario: "Hey hosemisnuba, I just made this fighting game, put some tracks to it."

    Makes sense? You thought of that already?

    Now its time to give my general impression on games starting with D (that I've gone over that is)

    The Great Ace Attorney: Despite the lack of involvement of Noriyuki Iwadare, the music in this game was just as excellent as 5 and Investigations. Good stuff I must say.

    Danganronpa: I love this series except for its cruddy anime follow up. That said, the music is great here. DR1 has a great soundtrack, DR2 is even better, and DR: Another Episode is about is about as good as DR1 in my opinion. Beautiful Ruin (Summer Salt) from DR2 is probably my favorite (ordinary living/slice of life track) out there.

    Darius: I don’t remember much from this. People have nostalgia issues or something.

    Dark Cloud: Bog standard RPG music with one memorable song “Owl Forest”

    Dark Souls: Dark Souls 1 & 2 are good works from Motoi Sakuraba, but are honestly some of my least favorite stuff he’s produced. Dark Souls 3 music composition wasn’t headed by Sakuraba, and surprisingly, it was my favorite of the bunch. Soul of Cynder’s boss theme is excellent.

    Dark Spire: The synthetic vocals in this ost are so memorable. Honestly, its big reason for this OST’s appeal. Good stuff.

    Dark Void: This one is composed by Bear McReary, the same guy who does the Walking Dead Music. Yes, it sounds like ‘movie music’, but it’s good stuff in spite of that.

    Darksiders: Darksiders 1’s OST was mediocre; Darksiders 2, had Jesper Kyd at the helm, so it was pretty solid (above Assassin’s Creed, but below Borderlands 2)

    Dawn of Mana
    : Had a lot of good tracks, all using a similar leifmotif. My favorite track is easily Dark Shrine.

    Day of Tentacle: Very peculiar, but pretty solid stuff. I liked it.

    Deadly Premonition: If I remember correctly, this game had good music, idk.

    Dear Drops: Bog Standard visual novel crap. Granted I like that crap, but it’s far from the greatest.

    Deathsmiles: What is this game exactly. I barely remember anything from it….

    Demon Souls: Decent. Honestly better than Dark Souls 1 at least.

    Demon’s Crest: One of the better 16 bit OSTs out there. It was enjoyable enough that I listened to most of it, afterall.

    Deus Ex: I liked it, but some of it is too overly atmospheric, which I why I’m saving it 2 most recent titles for later (it started to bore me). Icarus is an excellent track and deserves the praise it gets.

    Devil’s Crush: A pinball game with some good 16 bit tunes. They were good, I guess. Not much else to say.

    Devil’s May Cry: Not bad, but it managed to bore me, so I’m saving its most recent titles for a later date.

    Diablo: Not too great, but Diablo 2 has one damn good song and that makes this OST at memorable at least.

    Diddy Kong Racing: Its hard to believe this mediocre OST is composed by the legendary David Wise, but I guess everyone has their off days.

    Disgaea: It’s a little to avant-garde and bizarre for my taste, but I’ll definitely do the last 4 entries in the series later.

    Dishonored: The Drunken Whaler is an amazing song. Everything else is just okay. I’ll do Dishonored 2 in a while, when its out that is.

    Dissidia Final Fantasy
    : Rehash of a lot of Final Fantasy Themes. It has one unique piano song that’s decent I suppose.

    Divine Divinity: Overwhelmingly boring, but it had its moments here and there.

    Donkey Kong Country: This series is David Wise’s keystone achievement. DKC & DKC2, while not the greatest individual OSTs, have some of the greatest tunes that have came out of gaming. DKC3 is sadly, mediocre at best, in my opinion, with a few good songs here and there. I skipped DKC Returns so I could get to DKC Tropical Freeze. It took me a little while to warm up to it, but I must say its David Wise’s best work after DKC2 after listening to it in its entirety. Funny thing is, I have Tropical Freeze, but I have yet to beat it. I probably should get on to that.

    Doom: I recognize it as quality, but it’s just not my style. I’ll return for Doom 2, 3, and 64 later. The new Doom’s soundtrack was excellent, but way to heavy techno-metal for my taste.

    Double Dragon: This series music was good, but not very memorable

    Dr. Mario: Crappy chiptune that I don’t feel like listening to.

    Dra+Koi: Random porn game/ visual novel with like 10 tracks. Some of those tracks are good. It was a pleasant surprise to say the least.

    Dragon Age: Origins is okay, and Inquisition is mostly good because the Tavern songs. I’ll get to 2 later.

    Dragon Quest: So overrated in my opinion it isn’t funny. This is generic RPG music crap in honest opinion. Granted, I’m saving the last five games for later. Maybe they’ll redeem the series music for me.

    Dragon Spirit: What was this exactly?

    Dropsy: I really wasn’t feeling the music here. Not much else to say.

    Ducktales Remastered: Uhhhh, it had good music, but its probably something that only great in context or something. That’s not something I looking for, so I can’t say much more.

    Yeah I know.

    By the way, Etrian Odyssey is the sexiest thing I've found since Umineko. I didn't care for 1 & 2, but 3 has some great MIDI, and SHIT, those super arranges, and then 4 is making me drool. Yuzo Koshiro is so phenomenal.

    You might want to consider adding Shadow Hearts: From the New World and Sonic the Hedgehog (2006). They dont hold up gameplay wise to their series mates but in both cases the soundtracos are worth a listen.

    I'm certain I have those at this point, but thanks for the suggestion, I appreciate it.

    EDIT: Wait, not Sonic 2006. Added that I guess.

    I've decided that I will only stop adding games at 2000. That leaves 335 games up to suggestion (for now).

    Oh yeah, Yuzo Koshiro is my favorite video composer so far. Etrian Odyssey is too godly for me to say otherwise.

    I've been waiting for your thoughts on EO ever since you started this. It's probably my favorite series in terms of music, and I'm glad you seem to like it as much as me.

    Oh, he did the music for the Etrian Odyssey games? I knew Yuzo Koshiro through the Streets of Rage/Bare Knuckle games. Nice to know his music is still good.

    This should get him in the list if not interest you to explore more of MGS soundtracks ( because MGS has one of the greatest soundtracks in gaming) .

    No. I definitely have Metal Gear (not the earlier games, yet), but all the Solid games and Revengeance for sure. Yes, I've yet to listen to their OSTs, but that's because M is the thirteenth letter in the alphabet and I'm only on F, the sixth.

    -----------------------------------------------------------

    Well, I'm done with the Es for now. Here are my thoughts:

    Earthbound: I'm assuming the love for this OST is mostly contextual as the only song that I legitimately thought was excellent was the Snowman Theme.

    Earthworm Jim: This duo-logy has some pretty solid tunes. The only thing that irked me was the use of well known classical tunes was rather rampant here. I liked Anything But Tangerines in the second game.

    Edelweiss: Generic visual novel crap (which I have already admitted to liking) for the most part. There is one very good track, but I can't remember its name nor do I want to look for it.

    Einhander: This game had peculiar music if I remember correctly; that said, it was pretty good, I think.

    Elemental Master: I'm pretty sure this was a game with good 16 bit tunes and I liked them. Decent.

    Endless Series: Both games, Endless Space and Endless Legend, had pretty great music. A few songs were incredible, many songs were great, and the worst music was only good at worst. I suggest taking a look at this music.

    ESPGaluda: I liked this stuff. A lot of good techno tunes.

    Eternal Sonata: This game is a RPG with a dream avatar Chopin (the renowned 18th century composer) as the main protagonist; unsurprisingly, this OST was pretty fantastic. Admittedly, some of it is kinda boring, but when its good, its great (as expected from the talented, but wishy-washy Motoi Sakuraba). The remix of Chopin's Revolution used as the final boss theme is baller in my opinion. I highly suggest you give this OST a go if your interested in good music.

    Ether Vapor: This was decent stuff throughout, but it wasn't very memorable.

    Etrian Odyssey: Yuzo Koshiro is a god. Admittedly, I wasn't the biggest fan of the music in the first two games, due to the MIDI not meshing with me (it was still great, though), but come the third game and onward this shit owned. I also listened to the super arranged OSTs of one through four and those were spectacular (some of the best stuff so far). If you really like good music, I implore you: listen to this stuff- all of it.

    If I were to rank the individual OSTs from all the EO games as it stands, here is my opinion

    IV > III > Untold > Untold II > V > I > Mystery Dungeon> II

    Eve Burst Error: Blargh. It was okay at best. Don't listen to this.

    Ever 17: Takeshi Abo does a decent job here. His work in Steins;Gate and Chaos;Child, are frankly, superior, but Karma (best song in the game and its pretty great in my opinion), Der Mond Es Deer (A lullaby that is used as a plot device; I might like it more than I should because I've played the game and know its context), and the OP are all pretty good.

    Oh, I finally reached Final Fantasy. Not long ago in the nascent stages of this project, I went through some of the game's OSTs. My opinion of the first 10 games was the following:

    VI > X > VIII > VII > IX > III > IV > V > II > I

    Let's see how my great amount of experience changes that.

    Don't hate me for saying this, but I think that FF7's OST is overrated junk that doesn't hold its own outside of context. There were no songs I legitimately loved from it, and most songs were too short to be considered 'great'. I like FF1-FF6, and I'm currently enjoying FF8's OST a considerable amount, but FF7's OST is so... bleh.

    It's never too late. There are plenty of titles I skipped out of eagerness to move on, so a second round of the list will happen. Thanks for the suggestion. I appreciate it.

    I have recently started using pastebin to update my list. Once I hit two thousand, I'll probably stop adding things by myself.

    Here's the link to see how the list has grown.

    Recently, I was having a lot of trouble deciding what was game music and what was anime music in the Higurashi series (which has an amazing soundtrack in all respects), and after a lot of deliberation I decided to save it for later, feeling somewhat conflicted as to whether I should include an associated content (anime, movie, etc.), into a base game's content (on the condition that the game was the source content). That said, do you guys think I should include music not featured directly in a game, but in derivative content? I think I shouldn't, but I was wondering what others thought.
