Trying to think outside of the classics here...

Dustforce has a really great, super chill soundtrack (sounds like Robot Science):

Speaking of super chill, this song from the Final Fantasy XV Platinum Demo re-newed my interest in the game. Absolutely love this track:

And for super, SUPER chill, there's this track from Danganronpa that's just soooo relaxing:

Lastly, while we're on the subject of chill, this one's a bit older, but it's the last great piece of music from Silent Hill (IMHO) and one of my favorite:

Any FF game really - though IV and IX, I think tend to be the most exemplary.
Also I've been noticing while watching streams that Disgaea 5 has some great music as well.... ah, and Divinity: Original Sin! This guy http://www.kirillpokrovsky.com/ did the music and he definitely knows what he's doing.

I've been listening to the Uncharted 4 soundtrack - a few tracks are suitably rousing, such as New Devon. It is dangerous to drive to, I want to ram other cars out of the way.

Now I may be an idiot, but there's one thing I am not sir, and that sir, is an idiot

The feeling when you play through Eggman Land in Sonic Unleashed (final world) and finally defeat the final boss and hear this song:

So. Freaking. Satisfying. Listened to it for years but never heard it in the game until now.

Here are some "epic"/orchestral-y sounding tracks from some great games you may not have played:

From Bulletstorm, and possibly my favorite main-menu music in an action game outside of the Uncharted theme:

From Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2...I could listen to this one for hours on repeat:

Not my favorite but I thought using Dead Or Alive's You Spin Me Round (Like a Record) during that one chapter in Lollipop Chainsaw where the protagonist was mowing down zombies with a farming machine was pretty funny.

How's that Monster Hunter game for the PS4 coming along, Capcom?

Probably the soundtrack to Donkey Kong Country 2 is my all-time favourite.

Hotline Miami absolutely nailed the music recently.

I'm a bit of a sucker for music in Nintendo games, so;

Waluigi Pinball
Smash Bros. Melee Theme
Gourmet Race
City Escape (and SEGA, then)
Dark Pit's Theme
And that classic song in Jet Set Radio Future!

We all know the world needs Kentucky Fried Duck.

JRPGS win this category hands down for me. So many memorable tunes. Final Fantasy alone provided with so much quality music it's almost ridiculous.
And XV seems like it will continue the tradition https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=giI1sYmGOBk

Non JRPG all time favourites: 16 bit Sonic, Super Metroid's OST and Street Fighter 2 classic themes (by Yoko Shimomura, same gal who worked on XV) anJet Set Radio / JSR Future.

Valse di Fantastica from FFXV's now one of my most favorite video game themes.

How's that Monster Hunter game for the PS4 coming along, Capcom?

Don't think anyone has mentioned Crypt of the Necrodancer, a game about moving to the soundtrack so it is lucky it is such a good soundtrack. FFVII's soundtrack also did a great job of conveying the mood and oppression of the setting and ranks in my favourites.

Beyond that I always remember the music from the old SID chip in the C64, some great tracks from the likes of Hubbard, Whittaker et al with the likes of Delta, Sanxion, Wizball, Monty on the Run and loads of others. It may just be me getting old, but I don't remember a single soundtrack from big release since it became standard to move away from 'chip tunes'. Not saying they're bad, just they don't make me pay attention in the way they used to - they seem more there to emphasise what is going on in the game than add to it.

@KratosMD: I remember being blown away by the MGS2 song, listening to it again and again. It was one of the first examples of a big movie music man making the leap to video games, absolutely massive for it's time!

@WanderingBullet: Same here. It almost sounds like a wedding or dance song. I want someone on youtube to put it on top of the ballroom dance scene from FF8! Gonna pick up 15 next week and this song just gets me impatient to play it!

It's a shame we can't have a PS4 game music topic....for some reason

@BowTiesAreCool: Honestly I don't see the reason that there needs to be a PS4 game music thread when we have this one. PS4 is a video game system is it not?

The problem is if there's a PS4 thread then someone will want a PS3, or and arcade game music thread and before you know it there is a bunch of game music threads splintered across the boards which in the end makes the forum section cluttered. Sadly we don't have the ability to merge threads. I hope that explains it.

Thanks for understanding

There doesn't NEED to be any topic at all, but it's something I wanted to discuss/see what other people's faves were on the PS4 and the commuity was starting to engage before it was locked without polite discussion. In the PS4 forum. As there was no topic existing on it for the PS4. BUT I didn't realise the site only has room for x amount of topics (computer coding is almost alien to me unfortunately) or that wanting more discussions was a "problem". Have a good weekend mate!
