    Default Favorite video game song

    And by song I mean original song with lyrics and vocals. It has to have lyrics. And it has to be originally composed for the game in question.

    Personally, I don't think anything can surpass Radical Dreamers ~The Unstolen Jewel~ from Chrono Cross. As meh as I think most of Yasunori Mitsuda's songs with lyrics are (let's face it; they're all basically reworked versions of "My Heart Will Go On"), this one is really unique.

    Well, two songs immediately came to mind, one of which certainly isn't the answer and one of which likely is; I'll just leave both here and let the everyone else decide which is which.

    Someone mentioning Ar Tonelico besides me, awesome

    Anyway, this is tough for me because although i instantly narrowed it down to one series, that series has a bunch of songs I all love a lot. I'll just leave you with the one that came to mind first, because you ask for only one song and not 5+, though I honestly don't know if it's actually my #1 favorite.

    Urgh, this is hard. I have a lot of songs I like but not one that just eclipses all the others. I'll have to think about this a bit more.

    Celes' opera? Though I guess that can't really be a joke answer since it was actually done, and didn't sound nearly as good as it did in my head during the actual event in the game

    I almost want to say Luna's Boat Song from Lunar, since it's one of the first actual songs I heard in a game, and it was campy and cheap and completely endearing. Not nearly as well done as some things done later in gaming, but it came from the heart and was performed from the heart in the earlier days in gaming

    Outside of that, I feel like one of the Tales games had a song I adored. But I can't remember if it was Graces, Xillia, or Zestiria

    There are too many good ones. I may have to agree with Radical Dreamers~Unstolen Jewels. With that said, I kind of want to give a shout out to a few really great ones.


    This jazzy piece hits all the right notes for me and I think it's safe to say it's my favorite track from any Persona game.


    This is basically the theme of MGS1 and when you listen to it, you can just feel all the powerful moments from this game flash to the front of your mind.


    While most people will probably think of Sins of the Father and Quiet's Theme as the best original song tracks for this game (and they are great) I want tog give a shout out to this underrated 80s love ballad written for this game, and my default Chopper Theme.

    I wish it wasn't limited to having lyrics because the vocal tracks in the Soulsborne series are fantastic.

    Gas 'em up with the greens and let him go
    Stand back, stand clear as he puts on a show
    So cute yet fierce, is he from hell?
    I cannot tell, yet I don't even want to know

    So you wanna be a trailblazer?
    Kickin' dirt like a hell raiser?
    Take the reins, but don't react slow
    It's time to feel the force of the chocobo

    So you think you can ride this chocobo?
    Got Chocobucks? You better put them on this chocobo!
    Saddle up, if you think you can ride in this rodeo
    Are we in hell? I don't know... to the dirt, let's roll!

    You're loco if you think you're gonna hide this chocobo
    Everybody's gonna wanna ride your chocobo
    It's choco-loco style in a choco-rodeo
    Gonna ride him straight through hell in this chocobo rodeo!

    Yeah, let's ride!


    Beautiful
    Bow before the mighty Javoo!

    Not sure I can really judge the song itself. Just so many memories and fantastic moments conjured every time I listen to it.
    My friend Delzethin is currently running a GoFundMe account to pay for some extended medical troubles he's had. He's had chronic issues and lifetime troubles that have really crippled his career opportunities, and he's trying to get enough funding to get back to a stable medical situation. If you like his content, please support his GoFundMe, or even just contribute to his Patreon.

    He can really use a hand with this, and any support you can offer is appreciated.
