    The last two aren't on the same level as the others, BTW, but they have sentimental value for me.

    Another amazing one is the Actraiser soundtrack, e.g.:

    If it's not recorded off original hardware, I don't post it. It's that simple.

    I'll be honest, though, I think MegaMan X2 has a pretty lousy soundtrack with only a few good songs here and there.

    Some of my favorites:





























    Most of these are the kind of tunes that I feel highlight the SNES's strengths. While I love the Genesis I admit that Strings, Orchestral, Ambient Sounds, etc. are where the SNES tends to shine. So if a song tends have more of those sounds in it, it's going to sound better on the SNES most of the time.

    I'd love to see someone attempt to do some Genesis covers of some of the Link to the Past tunes.

    Bugger, I was just coming in here to post "Diving". My favourite SNES track by a long distance. I love that deep, fretless-style bass, especially in the introduction. A very atmospheric, prog-rock esque track. I love it so much, I had a shot at covering the bassline: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ByVqa8S8gHk - couldn't get as much wobble as there is in the original...

    So that this isn't just "PIMP MY VID", here's my favourite from Alien 3:



    Difficult to pick between this and Matt Furniss's MD Alien 3 soundtrack.

    Sometimes I think I'm the only one in the world who listens to Capcom's SNES music and can't stop thinking how awful the sound quality is, at least they got better with time though (the quality of Mega Man and Bass is very good).

    It kinda' sounds like they were trying to do FM music on the SNES' soundchip, and failing miserably.

    Were they working primarily with FM style sound chips in the arcade at the time?

    I disagree, I think the quality started just barely ok and then kept going down, then did a 180 with Mega Man and Bass (which sounds really good).

    Capcom and Konami both tried to use samples of FM instruments on the SNES, it always just made the audio sound inferior to me and made me wonder what the heck SNES fans are hearing.

    I figured as much, but F-Zero works best as the whole package. Plus its recorded from real hardware which is a nice bonus.

    I always thought all three X series games would have benefited greatly from being on the Genesis. I listen to the OSTs from those games and they were begging to be in real FM. There's also a disturbing lack of parallax in all the MM games on the SNES, which the Genesis could have easily fixed. Of course whether or not Capcom would have put in the effort the games needed if they were made for the Genesis, we'll never know. I'd put my money on no.

    No, it's unbiased analysis. The only fanboyism is people who claim that Hyperstone Heist and Bloodlines are actually as good as their SNES counterparts.

    Demon's Crest also has pretty respectable sound quality IMO.

    When I play the Mega Man X games its always the first one which most stands out for that old-mobile-phone-accidentally-dropped-in-the-bath sound, the sequels tone down the mobile phone, and have slightly clearer leads.

    Also Final Fight 3's sound isn't as bad as Final Fight 2's
