Wow, that list's awfully biased, therefore I can't agree with the title "25 BEST game music ever". GTA? Tony Hawk? Er...

This came from an American's point of view, so yeah... but if I was to give my own list of top songs, these ones would have been there:

1. Fahrenheit (Indigo Prophecy) - Say goodbye by Theory of a deadman
2. Silent Hill 3 - You're not here by Melissa Williamson and Akira Yamaoka
3. Ace Combat: The Unsung War - Blurry by Puddle of Mudd
4. Digital Devil Saga - Danger by Etro Anime
5. Mirror's Edge - Still alive by Lisa Miskovsky

Great post, nonetheless ^_^

Hey there shin!

Thanks for sharing some those video game songs. I agree it's solely from the Western games that's why i'll try to come up with my own summary songs although I'm pretty sure I couldn't include the ones you mentioned. I honetly haven't played any of them yet. LOL. XD

It's up to you, of course ^_^ if the song falls under your category of "good game music", then why not? :)

Check my blog out for my own list of game music ^_^
