What gaming theme gives you "chills?"

#1gadragodPosted 9/29/2013 10:30:52 AM
I mean, what song/theme/tune/etc "moves you" as a gamer? What piece, from any game, gives you needles under the skin, tears in your eyes, or leaves you lost in thought?

To start, here's mine:

The cello (I think that's what it is) causes tears to well in my eyes and gives me goosebumps on the skin.

And here's another:

The beginning gets me, but it's when we get to the theme "that we all know" that I start looking for my sword and shield.

What about you?

Song blew my mind as a kid for some reason, probably one of the main songs to get me into video game music/soundtrack

That coupled on with the actual main menu flashing the different characters, still brings chills til this day.

Only because playing a Paladin, you knew when the boss came death was certain. And if you fell... you watched that boss grand slam the entire zone; everyone dropped like flies. Well at least back when the level cap was 75.

Just knowing that battle actually took place in history was enough.

Skies of Arcadia, the Final Boss Theme (Opportunity)

Notice how it changes halfway through into something more upbeat? That occurs after you lower the Boss' HP below half. Brings a smile to my face every time, really helps you set the mood that you ARE these characters, and their desperate struggle is your own.

Nice, I haven't played a Syphon Filter game in years, I also remember that music from Way of the Samurai.

Tenchu had beautiful music too:

I get goosebumps and the chills whenever I hear these songs. Most of the songs give me the "good chills", while only the last song is tear-worthy IMO.

Last game I got to play with my little brother. It was his favorite, so we played it all the time until the servers went down. We got to play the campaign one last time about 3 years ago.
