Though my first gaming experience was Super Mario on NES, the soundtrack from where I get the most nostalgic memorie is from Jazz Jackrabbit 2. I was quite addicted to it and I used to play it over and over again.
Around the same time as the first Jazz Jackrabbit game, Epic Megagames also released what may well be the greatest fighting game ever on the PC: One Must Fall 2097
. Sadly, the developers bit over a bit more than they could chew with the sequel, and it didn't really live up to its predecessor after 7 years in development. The music is still pretty good, though.
That's pretty badass. C64 was before my era, so I've missed out on most of it. More SID recommendations are very welcome.
Not so much a specific music recommendation, but for anyone who doesn't already have it I'd recommend getting the High Voltage Sid Collection
, as it contains a vast amount of SID music. The .sid files can be played with a SID player like for example SIDTool
Now, this thread cannot go on without a dose of Touhou.
I'm going with Perfect Cherry Blossom. Can't not get goosebumps.
I've never actually played any of the Touhou games, though I've considered trying to get into it, in part because of the music. Wouldn't really know where to start, though
