That's why I can't find it anywhere. It's not called VVVVVV Soundtrack. Well, that's annoying.

I love that game and the soundtrack for it. Track 10 is my absolute favorite.

I have a lot of great video game music, from legendary composers like Harry Gregson Williams to Uematsu and Yamaoka and Yamashita.

Best video game cover I've ever heard. Blows anything from the minibosses out of the water:

Yeah, I have their No NES for the Wicked CD with tons of covers from Contra to Double Dragon. I love listening to it because I remember the levels and areas the tracks are from when I hear them. Great CD. I picked it up for $5 on Amazon. Totally worth it.

The FTL soundtrack (Ben Prunty) is my latest obsession in VG music.

At 3:28 this song becomes a masterpiece...I could honestly loop that part for a few hours and be comfortable, it's so pleasing to the ears and superbly constructed.

This guy took the Megaman 2 soundtrack and redid it with guitar/drums/bass. It's pretty awesome how he lines it up with the video footage from the game:

One of the best bonus materials on Dracula X Chronicles was all of the sound tracks. I unlocked all of them (It's Castlevania, I have to do 100%). I wish I could have somehow saved them to my iPad.

This song at 1:14 is one of the best chiptune mixes I've ever heard.

I never knew they had an album. A friend showed me that cover via their myspace page back in college. I'll definitely have to grab it.

The soundtrack from Contra 3: Alien Wars is one of the best in history.

Super Metroid also has an amazing soundtrack.

And yeah, I really dug FTLs.

My favorite chiptune has been Anamanaguchi's soundtrack for the Scott Pilgrim game.

The first "song" is great. It's someone trying to get a NES game to work and blowing into the cartridge, and you can hear the rusty spring on the NES console. Ah, so many great memories.

Oh yeah.
My favorite one from that album is Party Stronger.

All hail the music of Zeliard. An old pick but a great one.

lol
there are 11 true gamers on this board.

And I'm fake. As usual, I like good music in games, but there is little chance I would listen to it outside of the games.

I'm the same way. The Vomitron cover and the Scott Pilgrim soundtrack have been the only exceptions to that rule in my 20+ years of gaming.

I was the same way until I found chiptune mixes on youtube. I listen to those as I work now.

I'm a fan of anything music so if something catches my ear I will hunt it down into oblivion!

Not sure that has anything to do with gaming though....

My iPhone is loaded up with various game soundtracks, and I'll pop in the few game soundtrack CDs I have in my car every now and again. Then again, I also like movie soundtracks and listen to them also...

And my husband is still convinced that I'm not a nerd!

I enjoy all the old school RPG soundtracks (Final Fantasy, Chrono Trigger, Secret of Mana) and I am a huge fan of the music from Alan Wake. It fit so well with teh game.

Oh, and I listen to video game music at work too.

Speaking of game soundtracks I still need to check out Max Payne 3 as I really want to hear the score by HEALTH.
