I’ve been playing videogames for quite a long time. In that time I’ve defeated maybe hundreds of games. Today while at work I was browsing digg and on the front page was quite a nostalgic post. Apparently somebody titled “Flying Omelette” compiled a list of his Top 50 Game Ending songs. Now I’m going to debate if I agree or disagree with him but the list is quite a throwback in the ages.
I’m getting up there in age so it’s hard to go back and replay a lot of the games on this list but hearing some of these tracks bring back memories. I remember playing Faxanadu and getting so frustrated with the “Mantra” system. I have such horrid penmanship I lost so much progress just because I couldn’t read my own writing. Beating that game was quite the accomplishment. Also damn Mr. Omelette on reminding me how much I hated Illusion of Gaia (abit I did defeat it)
I am embarrassed to say there are games on this list that I did play and never defeated. I loved Xenogears and was 40+ hours into it and my game was erased by a old college roomate. Regardless any fan of games prior to 2000 should really check this site out. MP3′s are provided as well as screenshots and commentary by Lord Omelette.
