    I was gonna complain about Final Fantasy being so low on the list (under DUCK TALES), but then Zelda won. I am appeased.

    because, vitaliy, its of all time, not since the year 2000. most gamers hear these tunes and know EXACTLY what the game is. I would not have a clue what the sound of halo is... and GTA does not exactly have a theme to it... mainly various radio stations

    zelda of course number 1, it shouldn`t be any other way. whats even better is that they kept it all oldschool.

    couple arguments though, the FF theme should`ve been the "battle won" theme...definitely THE theme of Final Fantasy i think about.

    also, the original metroid was much better than super. as long as you are including the extended version.

    and why wasn`t tetris on the list? DK country was good, and DK is a great series, but tetris is much more addicting than DK ever was. Halo theme should`ve also been considered. I know I complimented them on going old school, but if I`m going to play a shoot`em-up game, halo wins over duke nukem.

    Like they said in the video, it`s too hard to pick any one set, because EVERYBODY has their list.

    If anybody`s interested in mine...

    10. "Mojo Mansion" - Maui Mallard in Cold Shadow
    9. "Sappy" - Tetrisphere 64
    8. "Area 6" - Star Fox 64
    7. "Birdman" - Pilotwings 64
    6. "Particle Accelerator" - Megarace
    5. "Sonic Boom" - Sonic CD
    4. "Snuckey`s" - Sam and Max Hit the Road
    3. "Rainbow Road" - Mario Kart 64
    2. "Every Ocarina Song" - Ocarina of Time
    1. "Aria di Mezzo Carattere" - Final Fantasy 6

    i think the problem is they did the best 10 and its hard to limit it to 10...

    I think we all can agree that Koji Kondo is a musical god. Wiki Article if you must

    can you imagine going from composing a full orchestra piece to being limited to 4 instruments? he had a bass, percussion channel, and 2 monophonic pulse channels and was able to create both the zelda and mario themes, as well as a slew of others...

    btw, forgot to mention smash brothers on the list, but I think a lot that are being mentioned should be in the top 25 list, not quite making the top 10.

    There was a girl who plays video games in that video. Clearly an actor, as there are no such thing as women who play video games.

    Actually, I`m not sure women even exist period. All I know is that "women" are these creatures I see in shopping malls that spray mace in my face every time I get within five feet of them.

    I agree with numenor. The tetris theme is the shizznit. This list is not complete. It didn`t even get an honorary mention or anything.

    But I do have to wholeheartedly agree with number one. Absolute classic.

    There`s a lot of bias involved in making this list. I personally think the Final Fantasy theme is number 1. The Zelda theme may be more popular, but you cannot deny the genius of Nobuo Uematsu.

    Metroid has always and will always be No 1 in my mind.

    I don`t need a damn list telling me that a 8 bit zelda version is better than that master piece.

    If I seem irritated I am, try waking up at 4am just so target tells you that your not supposed to work, WHAT THE F*CKING F UCK

    Hahaha, nice parody. Now seriously, where`s the ACTUAL list? And any list without Halo 3`s legendary soundtrack is woefully incomplete. Seriously, some of those are freaking painful to listen to, and all of them are bad even so. Stop living in the freaking past and get with REAL music! Yeesh.
    I still cannot fathom how you find a series of lound, painful R2-D2 bleeps listenable. I would be less pissed if Halo or CoD4`s soundtracks were on here.

    In every generation, they OWNED. I have them all on MP3`s, SHAMELESSLY.
