    Hands down, the underworld theme from Super Mario Bros. That's as funky as video games get.

    Some of the interstitial music for the "Gran Turismo" series is slammin'.

    Yes that has to be some of the best bass i've ever heard in a video game.

    not really bass line... but one of my favorite songs ever is from a video game. the opening theme to Legend of the Dragoon

    Here's the MP3


    If anyone know's anything about the singer or songwriter, let me know. I'd love to hear more of their work

    Agreed. I really noticed some killer funky lines on GT3 especially if you just sit there in certain menus.

    I totatlly forgot about that! The best is the Car Dealer menu- it sounds a lot like a Bela Fleck tune, what with the banjo and all. There's some really funky stuff in there, especially at the Home/Garage.

    Zero Wing....all your base are belong to us.:eek:
     
  11. I think you mean GT3 ;)

    But I'd have to agree, GT3 and Mario have some great ones. But the best music ever composed on a game has to be Final Fantasy VIII. :D
     
  12. i loved the basslines in chrono trigger, my favorite was the one in the dungeons
     
  13. hi there,

    Nintendo 64 - 1080 Snowboarding - really groovy line in the shack choosing your player, very low, needs a low B to play it. But damn - I really should practice bass as much as the half pipe on that game!

    X-Box, Jet Set Radio. Some real songs, but most composed for the game by an in-house guy(s) and there are some KILLER bass lines, and one song (out of like a 100 or so) that has this funky, rubbery slap line that's funky as all get out...

    "Havana Smooth" from Rise of the Triad. Lee Jackson's work on that game is amazing.
