    I'm a pretty big fan of video game music, it's one of the things I love most about games. Oftentimes, I'll be going back to areas just because it plays the theme I love the most. I'm wondering if any of you feel the same way? Do you think you're man enough to make a TOP 10 THEMES list? Well I know I am, so without further ado, heres my list in no particular order:
    1. Vandal Hearts (playstation) - Warlock https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=onx1zcIkHjA

    2. Patapon 2 (psp) - DettanKarmen https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2yDJzpGa4vw

    I can't make a Top Ten list off the Top of my head, since I'd have to replay a lot of games to remember them all. But off the top of my head, I can muster a list!

    MGS 3 Main Theme

    SSBB Gerudo Valley

    Every Version of the Hell March, though the second in particular is my favorite. Best listened to while picturing a Russian Armada with tanks and conscripts capturing and blowing up the Statue of Liberty as Zeplins bomb New York in the Background.
    Hell March 2

    Glorious Morning

    Phendrana Drifts

    Donkey Kong Country Theme

    Gangplank Galleon



    I can however list off some of my favorite Boss Themes, and it is a Tie.

    I love this theme a lot, the difficulty of this battle if you aren't prepared is maddening, not to mention how much you have to pay attention while using your Stylus and buttons to react to QTE's while deciding moves, what items to use, and paying attention to what Phase of Bowser your own and who to use to attack what while playing defense with others. This theme still makes my hairs stand on edge, due to how much I really panicked the first time I went through this game fighting this monstrosity. The music really making you feel just how dire the situation was, especially considering he can become in invincible, and heal to full.
    Bowser Battle from Mario and Luigie: Bowser's Inside Story

    Simply put, this one still scares me.

    Torvus bog theme.
    Delfino Plaza theme.
    Ocean theme from Wind Waker.
    Din's Dance
    Funny thing is I downloaded this and made a 1 long loop of it for me to listen to when I'm playing Dark Souls.

    Atelier Rorona Dark Zone

    Maiden Astraea's theme. It makes everything so much more epic than it should be.
    Across the Bog.

    They aren't really in any order.

    Hm... I think I have more than 10. Here's the ones that come to me fist, though
    The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Temple of Time background 'Song of Time' chant
    The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. Honestly, I put in a LOT of the soundtrack from here... my favorites are the Song of Healing, the Stone Tower theme and the Final Day theme.
    The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker the Wind God's Aria
    The background music from the Gallery of Time and Demon Shaft in Dark Cloud.
    I really like the music from the ending credits to both of the Souls games.

    Sins of a Solar Empire Main Theme.

    Some of the other songs in the game are also great.

    @Mr. Tart: I love Fable's theme. Elfman is a great composer.

    Also, whoever composed the Sins songs is also great.

    I disagree, Shadow of the Colossus does it for me.

    Obviously Sif's theme is the main contender for Dark Souls.

    Sacred - Blind Guardian, which was the theme for Sacred 2.

    Most themes from Sonic Adventure (And SA2), especially those by Crush 40.

    Time Splitters Future Perfect: Khalos Express, the VR theme, Zeppelin, Like a Monkey etc.

    And of course, Glorious Morning - Waterflame, the theme to the much loved "Age of War" -

    Thank's to you I have finally found that song!! (heard it in one of Monty's "Dead Fantasy" videos)

    Sif's theme and Gwyn's theme are the top for Dark Souls.

    Twister from The World Ends With You

    Devils Never Cry from DMC 3

    Can't forget about Halo's Theme

    And last but not least, both Kingdom Hearts 1 and 2 themes: Simple and Clean , Sanctuary

    I have to agree on Devils Never Cry. A close second for me would be Spilit of Motherwill from Armored Core: For Answer.

    Xenoblade Chronicles, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B0DE5zyRI6U&list=PL8DoUG_u_DGfMserQQEZ_45r9GaY1f9nL&index=8

    Used for only one cutscene, but it was amazing.

    Anything from Xenoblade Chronicles really, that game had an amazing OST, such a shame it was only on the Wii, it would be so much more awesome if it was on the Xbox and PS3, the game had amazing graphics and really deserved a more powerful console.

    Chrono Cross -- Time's Scar

    Okami -- The Sun Rises

    Devil May Cry 3 -- Vergil Battle 3

    It's hard for me to pick just five, but if I didn't limit myself I'd use up all the internet.
