This had to be a closer tie than it was between Zelda and Final Fantasy.

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

I hope to conduct music one day. It will be my major.

I`d have put TES on there, but those games probably aren`t popular enough, and it seemed the the ranking did have a bit of an oldschool bias.

I KNEW Final Fantasy was on the list. I think it should`ve been a little higher than just seven. WHY was Mario number FIVE?! I was expecting that to be first!
"It`s time to kick ass and chew bubblegum. And I`m all out of bubblegum."
The best. line. ever.

I am not a Halo fan. I AM a music fan. That having been said, Halo`s music was wholly forgettable. Nobody can forget Zelda. Now stfu with the Halo and go play some Madden or something else lame, damn jocks.

I love all of those themes except for Ducktales and Megaman. I really loved Final Fantasy and Secret of Mana the most

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.

Yay! Zelda was number one. I used to put in the original NES game just to listen to the music. Brings back a lot of great memories.

Great list, I`d never heard the Ducktales one, but it sounded great and definitely deserved the spot. Legend of Zelda is DEFINITELY the best.

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

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.

No. Karate Kid theme was the best song on the list. All I can see when it plays is crane kicks and Elizabeth Shue pre-ugly.

COBRA KAI!

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.

Meh, while I understand it`s classic, there`s plenty of awesome music out there that isn`t just a bunch of beeping sounds. They really should have mixed it up a bit more.

The best music EVER (right under LoZ) is Guardian Legend for the NES.

I`m a tad dissapointed about the Dragon Warrior overworld theme not being in it. It was waaaay better than that Final Fantasy song. But I guess everyone has their tastes...

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 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.

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

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.

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
