Sad Video Game Music
« on: September 20, 2006, 03:26:06 pm »
While there are quite a few of these, i was piddling with my mp3 collection and i found my metroid metal directory.  I played the ending and like, that song, for some reason, just breaks my heart.  



I dunno why, but it just does.  Funny how some guy totally took that midi and redid it with real instruments and put all of that emotion into it.



*sigh*

I don't know if you'd consider this sad, but I like "Tears" from King of Fighters '99, especially the arranged version.  Also the arranged version of "Farewell" from The Last Blade 2 is kind of sad.

I've heard a lot of sad music, but not much from games though.



From memory, I remember the last part of the opening theme in Final Fantasy VI to be somewhat sad (the part where the soldiers are walking toward Narshe as the credits scroll by on the screen).

Also a big winner for me is the haunting "Invisible Sorrow", the music from the Undergound Tunnel level in both Castlevania 64 and Legacy Of Darkness. It's gentle and slow-paced, and to me just radiates loneliness and loss.



(Can't find the link to the USF right now)



One last song I remember is an OverClocked Remix of the Library music theme from Symphony Of The Night. It's done purely on a real piano, but it gets so intense at the end it just moves me. Music always has an intense effect on me.

I'll see if I can post a sample of the two I mentioned.  They're in MP3 format, so I can't upload the full songs on my web space.
