    Uhhh, is it ok for me to shit on the thing you love or is it best for me to just shut my mean arrogant mouth up?

    whatever you prefer, if you don't like it, like the song goes "everything is just fine" xD.

    I don't mind it, really. What's your criticism about this song in particular?

    I've only played one game that I'd be willing to openly claim as "art". In contrast with Cyan's game, however, it has one of the worst soundtracks I've ever heard.
    Still...

    I was just joking. I don't wanna shit on it. It's just surprising to me that there are people that actually like these type of cheesy songs. I always wondered why they added them to games, but it turns out people out there like them. But I'm no music buff, so I can't qualify my tastes better than just "it's my taste". To be fair, I find the whole concept of KH cheesy from head to toe, so I'm not one to have an opinion on anything about it.

    The original resident evil's soundtrack was so fitting. There is a lot of depth.
    Amazing this came in 1996.

    The Kingdom Hearts soundtracks are A R T. They're simply the best, better than all the rest.

    maybe a milk in love would be a very cheesy guy, xD just in love. If you fall in love that song could sound good to you.

    The retrofitted title of the thread gives me some ideas.

    I was just about to add some Skyrim pics, one of my favourite games ever, art wise too -specially the scenery-, but that has to wait.

    thanks for the very original contribution to the post. The game sounds familiar, but just because of the name. The art style is very original, and the part where the guy runs over the waves is certainly impressive, the collision detection works in very cool ways there. For some reason there are certain points of the stages that remind me of the rainbow road of Mario Kart, but different.

    this song seems to be cut from the same mold of the initial one, the difference being that I didn't know about it. Alas, I barely played any MGS games. It is also similar, somewhat, to the Roland SD-50 demo song, which I like very much -it is in MP3 format, not MIDI, it is not instrumental, but it is really good.

    this one sounds awesome on headphones

    that song still gives me the chills. That house was terrifying, specially things like those dogs, that were out there, and you knew that at some point you would find them.... Same with other enemies, not to mention certain surprises -when you thought a zombie was dead, it wasn't..-.

    Granted, technically not up to par with big boy console open world games, but in terms of artistry Breath of the Wild is just second to none. Doesn't get much bigger while feeling this meticulously handcrafted. Especially the transitions between the regular open world and the many towns and cities is just wonderful.

    Ok, since I mocked KH, I have to put a pick of mine here:



    The song is nothing special on the whole, but I just can't have enough of that basson solo. The whole OST of that game is amazingly well produced. Everything just fits in a way nobody was able to reproduce onlater titles. Everything Michael Land and Peter McConnel touch, tends to be very tasteful.

    Playing Parasite Eve as a 12 year old was quite eye opening. Burning audience, mutated crocs, dogs, and giant penis equipped ultimate being oh my!

    some of the pictures of the Breath of The Wild landscapes can be as sublimely beautiful as some Skyrim landscapes, like Bloated Man's Grotto. It also reminds me of Oblivion on steroids, with improved graphics.
    utterly fantastic. Btw, GoG has the Monkey Island games on sale this weekend.

    That song is very romantic :D.

    Old point and click PC games were also artistic masterpieces. Neverhood and Sam and Max come to mind :D

    When videogames are pure art, you get Fl0wer.

    When they're not, you get FIFA [year].
