Video game nostalgia
« on: October 25, 2010, 01:55:56 PM »
So, goofing around and found this website with old video game music archived. I pulled this one up, final fantasy title, and got hit with hardcore nostalgia. Dunno if it'll do the same for anyone else, but there are lots of other games archived on that site that might.

Listening to the ocarina of time sent shivers down my spine. Did also listen to turok 2 soundtrack, aaah that was the best game in the series. Hmm it now occured to me that I´we wasted my youth on video games... But damn it was a good time, still is!
I was struck by lighting
Walkin' down the street
I was hit by something last night in my sleep
It's a dead man's party
Who could ask for more
Everybody's comin', leave your body at the door

Give a listen to Mind in a Box's RETRO, superb use of cartridge-style instrumentation...

Link leads to a 404 :(

But yeah, good times. Ive spent a lot of time playing games since I was like 7 or something. One of my friends had a N64. Ooh, the countless hours we spend playing GoldenEye, good times. And after I got a PS1 with FF9, I definitely spend a whole lot of hours playing that. Its the only game Ive never finished on purpose because I didnt want it to end. Oh and Spyro Year of the Dragon. Still one of my favorite games.

Thanks Drew!

Aahhh, listening to the fight theme of FF9. Ahhh, so many good memories suddenly flood back =)

Me and my sis used to drive our parents totally crazy with that theme. We where grinding and they where in the living room and they got totally nuts from the same song over and over again XD

Oh god! The endless grinding to try and level up so you could put the smack down on the bosses. Yeah, that's something I definitely remember.

Nah, I was usually grinding so I could learn all the skills and get to level 99. I never made it past level 70 or something. I was playing to fast :P

And also of course the Chocobo Hot and Cold mini game. Trying to turn my Chocobo into the gold Chocobo so he could fly.
