    ...cause I can't get enough of them! I listen to all kinds of music (Donkey Kong Country to Final Fantasy). Something about this type of sound really appeals to me, be it nostalgic or otherwise. I've always been one that tends to focus more on the instrumental portion rather than the vocal aspect. My father is the complete opposite; he could here every friggin' word if it were to be sang in outer space (just roll with it)! Whenever a song comes on the radio, I can usually identify it within a matter of seconds by the sound alone.

    Certain music, Aeris' Theme - FFVII(especially the orchestra version), really touches me. This particular piece still manages to bring a tear to my eye to this very day; it's almost as if lyrics aren't always necessary to convey a specific emotion...

    Any thoughts/opinions are welcome

    No, I can't say that I do. But I always liked the music on Kingdom Hearts. I actually think I have two of them, but don't really listen to them all that often.

    Yes

    I don't expect anyone to listen to all of these, but I just want you to get the point.

    If I had the patience I'd probably save these as flv. files, and convert them into audio files so I could listen to these at the gym.

    I thought DOOM, DOOM II, AND FINAL DOOM had pretty good music.

    I listen to video game soundtracks, and I have been for years. I feel that video game soundtracks have all the positive things about classical music w/o the 'rules' the most people try to adhere to. AT this point, I listen to mostly MGS, Chrono Cross/Trigger, FF, and I few other things.

    Edit: At a earlier point in my life, I considered becoming a pro musician just to do video game music and such.
