Worst Game Music Discussion @ OCR Forums

Worst Game Music thread image

So recently on the OverClocked ReMix forums, ReMixer Gecko Yamori, started a discussion on the worst game music ever. Here’s a quote from his first post in the thread:

After browsing numerous forums and watching “best game music” threads
pop up every month with the same shit listed over and over, I thought
I’d make an effort to catalouge the worst aural offenders in games. Once
I have enough material I’ll pick the 10 worst ones and make a fancy
YouTube presentation.

Edit: As it turns out, the GeckoYamori made the thread awhile ago, but Txai has recently resurrected the discussion.

So far my nominees are:

  • A Boy and his Blob: This makes Banana Phone sound like Chopin.
  • Cruis’n USA: Would have picked Daytona USA, but the constipated Elvis
    impersonator trumps it on every level.
  • Mega Man 2 (Game Boy): I have no idea if the composer intentionally
    tried to pursue some avant garde disharmonic statement here.
  • Doom (32x): I know it’s not easy to get the most out of the YM chip, but
    this sounds just like they hastily ran the MIDI files through a
    converter and didn’t even bother to manually touch them up afterwards.
    Which makes sense given that the entire game was one big rush job.”
