    Default Which Video Game Era has the best music?

    I personally think the N64 era had the best music. They were catchy and had feeling.
    Music nowadays are just a bunch of orchestra pieces which for some reason developers think makes their soundtrack good. Everytime I think of hype video game music, 5th generation. Everytime I think of nice cute peaceful music, 5th generation. It does it all.

    I love the 7th generation. I like the 6th generation of consoles but I think that its mostly nostalgia that makes the 7th generation is better

    Every generation has it's ups and downs but I feel that music is getting better right now. In the eighties and early nineties the music was mostly midi music and the second half of the nineties had memory limitations, 6th gen was dominated by really glaring and immersion breaking "nu-metal" or scream-o (Halo 2 rings a bell), and the previous generation was obsessed with faux orchestral soundtracks.

    Man, this question was killing me. I eventually was able to choose 5th generation, but it was an EXTREMELY close match against 4th.

    What made me love 4thgen music:
    Chrono Trigger
    Super Mario RPG
    Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
    Gunstar Heroes
    Dynamite Headdy
    Sonic Series
    Kirby Superstar
    Final Fantasy 6
    Donkey Kong Contry
    Super Ghouls and Ghosts
    More that simply didn't come to mind

    And for 5th Gen music:
    Final Fantasy 7,8, and Tactics
    Legend of Mana
    Star Ocean: The Second Story
    Valkyrie Profile
    Super Mario 64
    Breath of Fire 3 and 4
    Castlevania: SOTN
    likewise more that I know I liked but couldn't remember

    For me, this was like tearing out my teeth. But, despite my absolute love of the 4th gen and its games, I feel I enjoyed the 5th gen of music a little (very little) bit more. I both love and hate you for posing this question [more love than hate though :) ].
