Game Music from HELL
« on: December 17, 2011, 03:57:37 pm »
Here is le topique: Do you have a particular piece of video game music that you just plain can't stand to hear anymore? It doesn't have to be a bad piece of music, just something you've heard so many times that you might gouge your eardrums out with a dull pencil if you had to hear it one more time?

Mine is the Veldt theme from Final Fantasy VI. "Drums...drums in the deep..."

How about the mansion theme from Simon's Quest, while you're at it? Or any of the five whole tracks that game had, right? :D

Wow I love both "bloody tears" and "The Veldt".

Game music I can't stand :
- The winning "techno" of Mega Man 2
- The suck-ass dungeon theme of Breath of Fire 2
- The terrible frog castle music of Breath of Fire 2
- Norfair in Metroid (one of the worst music ever composed)

the dwarf town from SoM
Now that you mention it I remember that although I love SOM's sountrack I agree this one is particuarly terrible and annoying.

Hopefully as opposed to Ridley's Lair in Metroid, which still creeps me out to this day.

I love the Norfair theme :(

Anyway, here's some of the stuff I hate:

- The monkey cave theme from Earthbound
- Pretty much every theme from Lufia 1
- That hide and seek theme from one of the Zelda Oracle games
- Protoman's theme (fuck those high-pitched squeals used in the intro)

Since we're talking about Earthbound, then that dungeon man music. But it's worse on the GBA
Warning: Turn the volume down

The thing with Bloody Tears is that it's basically super overplayed. It's in just about every Castlevania that pulls music from other games in the series, and every indie remixer and their cousin has done something to it. IT'S GODDAMN OVERPLAYED ALREADY PICK SOMETHING ELSE there's *tons* of great Castlevania music out there that isn't Bloody Goddamn Tears. Like this or this or this or this or this or this or this or this or...

Edit: Or this or this or this or...

So do I ;D: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ohpn-PTmmm4

Annoying/Don't like:

-dungeon theme from Legend of Zelda
-1942 morse code music
-Forest Temple <- not actually bad music, but gets really annoying when it keeps repeating :banghead:
-Lethal Lava Land
And I'll leave it at that!

Eh, just 'cause it's overplayed doesn't mean that it's not good.  ;)  But I'll definitely agree that there are tons of great tunes in the Castlevania series.  By the way, I highly recommend the Dracula Battle CDs to anyone who hasn't heard 'em.

As for maddening "music", the constant droning of Cybernoid is horrible.  The Adventures of Rad Gravity also comes to mind.  I started to say Treasure Master, but realized the music is the only thing that was good about the game.  Thanks, Tim Follin.

EDIT:  Can I add a tune that creeps me the heck out?  If so, the Stage 6 Music from Double Dragon II.

That weird town's music from Suikoden V.  I think it's supposed to suck based on the characters' dialogue, but man oh man...

I do believe this music actually came from hell, yes. Look at the composer's name: 山根一央
                                                                                                               ^
                                                                                                               |
                                                     >:D         Is that not the tip of a trident? ---
And I'll leave it at that!

I agree BT is way too much overplayed and that there is load of good music in the CV series other than this song.
But the original song from the NES or FDS verison is still very good even if you are annoyed by the billion of remixes.


And I forgot to mention Otherworld from FFX- I - cannot - stand - this - style - of - music - and the fact Uematsu fell so low is probably the worst part of it.

Yeah, well. You're going to love FF 13-2's chocobo theme.

That's what it sounds like when a cherished childhood memory dies a violent stabbing death.

I've actually always found that piece soothing, and I love having it on in the background while I study. City In The Sky on the other hand, drives me utterly bonkers, if only because the Oocca's mutterings.
