Speaking of cheesy Nintendo songs, I like the Ashley theme.



'Murica version doesn't sound as good, but I like to play it when my sister-in-law (same name!) comes over.

*Heroes of Might and Magic 3*

Ok, boomer. Fun game though. Would play often with my Euro cousins. We either all sucked at it or the game was really hard. We never did look up guides or videos back then. So I don't think any of us ever completed anything in that game.

I'll give you something non weeb. Eurotrash

oops sorry. Back to being a filthy weeb. Or I guess Koreaboo this time.

Korean remix of The Ballad of the Wind Fish from Link's Awakening 2019.



This song doesn't have actual lyrics to it right? This is just made up to how the singer saw fit I guess?

This one is done by the same artist. Just less remixy

Korean sung Ballad of the Wind Fish (normal version if you will)

Edit: Oh snap. I tossed in the youtube title into google translate and I guess Link's Awakening is called "TLoZ: Dreaming Island" in Korea. The more you know

Important EDIT 2:

Japanese lyrical version of Ballad of the Wind Fish

Apparently Nintendo made promo versions of Ballad of the Wind Fish. So that Korean version isn't just some cover (referring to the hyperlinked on that I called "normal version"), it's a legit official track that isn't used outside of promotion usage. Not sure if there is an English version to be honest.

Someone in the comments said the unofficial English translation of the lyrics is:

From the dream somehow you cannot awake
Even though you might wish it so
Dreams are things that someday you awaken from
That is the fate given them by time


From the blowing wind
Every single thing disappears
Even this sun in the sky
Shivering


The dream wakes, and with this the dream ends
But it is always within you

The best example of this to me are the recent Netherrealm fighting games.  Both Injustice games and MKX and XI have the most forgettable soundtracks- literally nothing stands out or is remotely memorable.

I liked the soundtracks in MK1-3.

MK1 Character Select Theme (forever and ever and ever an...)

UMK3 Character Select Theme (forever and ever and ever an...)

 :rejoice

MK2 - The Armory

It's not that I find most of the level tracks that great for the 2D Mortal Kombats. But they have a very distinct style. When I was looking at what MK1 or 2 track to add I was like "ehhh, I'm not feeling like any one specific track is that killer, but they all capture the right atmosphere"

Oh, they don't even come close to the likes of the Capcom and SNK games, but they still were 100 times better than the recent MK/IJ titles.

SNK n' Capcom were on fire back then.  Still good now.

If your parents didn't buy you this game through your school book catalog* crap that they gave out during elementary school, they didn't love you.



Edutainment games don't get much better than this.

*non-US school kiddos might not have had this.

Too much snark recently. I need to regroup myself.  ;)

What I really wanted to say without coming off as antagonistic is that Zoombinis was a really cool edutainment game I loved as a kid. It's also been rereleased, so it should work without any problems on modern PCs.

But here you go.



Oldskool music from European composers like Tim Follin and Chris Hulsebeck, Amiga MOD music, etc was fucking awesome. They tended to be more influenced by European electronic music while Japanese retro games tended to be more influenced by YMO, city pop, and 70s rock. Different influences but still both amazing. There's a lot of good music in modern day western indie games as well (western indies tend to be heavily influenced by retro Japanese game music). I do like some classic PC music too, Doom, Jazz Jackrabbit, Mechwarrior 2, Command and Conquer, Total Annihilation are some of the best from that era.

Mainstream western game music nowadays is mostly forgettable ambient or wannabe movie soundtrack shit.

Always loved this tune. Only played in one mission. Think it had something to do with escaping from a city garage. Maybe something to do with stolen liqueur. Somewhere in the second half if I'm not mistaken. If anyone were to play this today, you must opt for the PC version. Console versions were genuinely inferior. Not talking about PC Master Race nonsense. The console ports were altered here and there. Straight up not the true experience as intended.

Is this another way of saying uninspired orchestral scores? Because uninspired music is uninspired regardless of the genre.
Anyway, i can think of plenty nice sounding western scores that came out in the last decade, them being similar to movie soundtracks isn't really a problem in and of itself.

Also not to make this a pointless post, Far Cry 5 had a couple of good tunes:
