The opening to one of my all time favorite games! Listen for those DBZ sound effects lol.





Still an absolute classic to this day! This one still holds up to me sooooo bad ass!





I still find myself humming this one every once in a while lol.

Just to name a few. Soul Calibur blew my mind when I first seen it. I had to watch it at least 5 more times before starting the game.

My list kinda sucks since I don't recall too many. I always skipped them when I was younger. I have a bunch of favorites from modern stuff from Gamecube till now though.


Haha looking back at this it's so stupid, but man when I was 4 or 5 years old it made me pumped up!


GoldenEye; wish it had the menu music in this too.


Turok 2; mainly for the Iguana dual wielding shotguns lol. The second half was cool since it made the world look so enormous.


Streets of Rage mainly for the music.

I know it's not really an opener to a game, but I used to put this on and just let it sit on the TV for hours.

After a night full of multiplayer with my friends back home, I would just let this stay up while I slept too.

00:47 and 1:41~ish always hit me in the feels.

Okay, I'm all teared up now... Next...

This. I loved listening to this games menu music when I was doing other things like homework or just checking stuff out on the computer. Halo has always had a great orchestrated soundtrack for the truly epic feel. One of my very favorite shooter franchises to date.



This one was my favorite growing up by far. I never skipped it. I loved how they announce everything in one swoop and have this epic animation to unveil the characters so seamlessly. Also, the music is just plain awesome. This is my favorite Crash game by a mile. Too bad my disc has a chunk missing :(

I second this. This always got me hype when I was about to jump online for some Big Team Battle (Valhalla hopefully) so I could laser me some fools. This game will always stick with me as it was my first true online multiplayer game I really got into.

The theme song and intro alone prompted me to want to want to buy this. I picked it up not to long ago and have yet to dive in.

@NinjaPenguin Awesome picks!!! Also, Turok 2 is absolutely amazing! I played the crap out of it when it came out. I feel like Turok 2 and Shadow Man deserves a bit more love, out of the N64 library. Two phenomenal games!

I'm probably forgetting loads but here are some of my favourites:
