    As I type this, I'm listening to Big Boss Confrontation from Super Metroid. In fact, I find myself listening to a lot of music from Super Metroid. I also tend to listen to music from other games, such as:

    Crateria Underground - Super Metroid
    Bloody Tears - Castlevania II: Simon's Quest
    Castle - New Super Mario Bros. Wii
    Hyrule Field Night Theme - The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
    Underground Theme - Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
    Castle Course - Yoshi's Woolly World
    Halo Theme - Halo

    What are some of your favorite tracks from games?

    The music for Metroid was great and perfect for the inherent weirdness of that game. Perfectly captures the essence of the game

    I've never been a big video game score person, sicne almost every single one I've heard has put me off, including ones praised likes "Journey" (2012) and one by a female composer from recent times that I don't recall the name of off hand.


    I did connect a lot of the synth and sample heavy score to "Knights of the Temple" by Gustaf Grefberg. Samples:





    And my favorite track from it (I wish I had it without the breathing):
