Cool "The Video Game Genre"

█▓▒░The Video Game Genre░▒▓█


-Operative-

Music is certainly a big part of everyone's life today, with these 160 gb storage devices for listening to music anywhere and-what-not. Everyone is obssessed with their metal, and rock, and pop, country, and classical. But a highly underappreciated music genre, that's getting better as the calendar moves on, is video game music. Soundtracks to the games we know, love, and play everyday provide the added emotion to the scenes, but no one ever pays any attention to them. Take Super Smash Bros Brawl, for example. 60 of the best artists from Nintendo got together to remake classic songs and compile them all into one big 300 song soundtrack, and they obviously wanted the songs to be know, as they added the "my music" option. Sure, people acknowledged it, but after the first listen, the songs -yet again- went unnoticed. Well, i'm here to bring notice to these songs. This club is for Video Game Soundtrack sharing, appreciation, and reviewing (and the usual amount of spam/way off topic chat that's bound to happen)

~~The Reviews~~

Want to submit a review? Choose a soundtrack, listen to them from the video game/online, and fill out the following form, then post it in this thread, with no other words in the post. Reviews CAN be rejected. Soundtracks can be from ANY video game, as long as it hasen't been reviewed yet. So feel in the mood to review donkey kong? Be my guest.

Spoiler:
-Insert video game cover picture-
Title: The title of the game
Artist: Who made the music
Platform: Nintendo/sony/microsoft/etc
Link to download: ONLY use this part if there is a link to a LEGALLY FREE soundtrack floating around out there. If not, post a link to a place where you can purchase the soundtrack. If neither exist, don't post any link.
Favorite Song: post the title/link of your personal favorite song from the soundtrack

Ratings:
Fitting-in: How well did the songs fit into the game? x/10
-insert reason-
Originality: Is this song reconizable from other sountracks? x/10
-insert reason-
Diversity: Do the songs stand appart from each other? x/10
-insert reason-
Nostalgia Value: Say you have your songs on shuffle, and you hear this. Can you reconize what it's from, and does it bring back memories? x/10
-insert reason-
Overall: Avg the past four numbers. x/10.

Reserved Reviews

Want to write a review of your FAVORITE games soundtrack, but don't have time? Afraid someone else will get to it before you? The simply post/im me that you want to reserve said review! Then, you'll have 5 days (exactly 120 hours) to get that post up. IF ANYONE ELSE REVIEWS THAT GAME in that time frame, they will lose a review point. And if you yourself fail to review it in that time, then it becomes available for ANYONE to review. So if you want to review a game, always check this list first ;D

For the record, unless the Soundtrack was released to the Internet as a free release, you are not allowed to post links to illegal downloads.

BTW, the best gaming soundtrack I've heard is Stewart Copeland's soundtrack for Spyro: Year of the Dragon.

I may write a review for something later... as an example.

OK, first review.


Title: Super Mario RPG
Artist: unknown, Squaresoft?
Platform: Nintendo
Favorite Song: Forest Maze (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iijdWiQppq0)
Ratings:
Fitting-in:9/10
Square did a good job composing the music here. It really reflects the cheery and colorful mood of the game.
Originality: 8/10
Square took a risk and composed it's own music instead of borrowing from Nintendo. As a result, the music is distinctly different from any Mario game, or any game for that matter.

Diversity: 7/10
While catchy, in this category Super Mario RPg is a bit lacking. While the music scores are varied, they borrow from the same set of notes, taking away from the diversity.
Nostalgia Value: 10/10
Super Mario RPG is a classic. And as such, the songs, particularly the Forest Maze theme, have become well known. It's hard to forget classics.
Overall:9/10.
