Well it's often an "unsung" hero but without those little ditties and bleeps, bloops and samples amplify a lot of our retro gaming experiences and would have been nowhere near as addictive, nor would you catch yourself whistling the tune to Monkey Island 2 on the bus. Even some of the sounds when you added a credit remain in your memory. What would you OCAU rate as the best retro music and sound effects? Also what machines would you rate the best at producing this stuff. Having missed out on C64 (because I owned the superior - yes debatable - Atari 800XL) I understand the SID chip was phenomenal, however I do know for certain the Amiga smacked the Atari ST quite "soundly" (owned both) when it came to epic music with it's amazing stereo sound and RCA outputs allowing you to plug that sucker straight into your hi-fi (which I did!). Anyway, a few of my most fond aural memories.... Monkey Island 2 - seriously iMuse put the i in music long before Apple R-Type - wow, just wow. Bubble Bobble. Outrun - Magical Sound Shower, need I say more? Super Hang-On - got the tempo right Lotus Turbo Esprit 3 - how cool was the "cd player"? Cannon Fodder - War, never been so much fun! California games (Atari Lynx/Handy) - great stuff. Also more than just tunes any games you thought the sound effects were great in, this thread is all about sound! Space Invaders - so simple yet so ominous! Galaxian - pew pew pew! Speedball 2 - both music and sound - but really - ICE CREAM! Strider - the laugh at the beginning got you in the mood - as did Altered Beasts - Rise From Your Gwave! Lemmings - Oh Noes! pop, pop, pop, pop! Gauntlet II - Blue Wizard shot the food, Red Valkyrie is IT! Mortal Kombat - some great sampled speech.
