Well I thought that this might be fun. Let's list some of our favorite Title Screen themes. It is usually the first the song you hear in a video game and one that is supposed to wrap up the entirety of the game. I will be keeping track of people's favorites and will make a post with some of the big favorites.
List no more than five and explain why they're your favorite title screen themes. Oh yeah and it has to be the song that plays on the Title Screen. If the game has an opening cinematic theme that transcends into the title screen, then that's okay. If they're separate then they're separate, nothing more than that. So let's get started. Here are mine in no certain order.
In no particular order...
Mega Man 2/Mega Man 3 I just can't choose between the two, they're both amazing, energetic, and are iconic themes for the franchise. Even though I played Mega Man 1 before 2, I still consider Mega Man 2's intro music to be the theme for the classic series as a whole. Mega Man 3's theme was very memorable as well. I just absolutely love how the song builds up. And unlike Mega Man 2, I personally find this song to be really great when remixed.
The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask Whenever I started this game up as a child, I'd never skip the intro. It was so relaxing watching everyone go about their buisness while that calm music would play. But at the end of it where Majora's theme would start to play, I begin to feel chills throughout my body. Something about it just feels so unsettling.
Ristar - The Shooting Star This intro is one of my favorites part for the entire game. Whenever I think of Ristar this intro is the first thing to come up in my mind. I just like how catchy and upbeat it is to be honest. It's very nostalgic to me.
Super Smash Bros. Melee This intro is by far the best out of any of the Smash Bros. games. The music flows with all of the characters, it builds up and changes at the right moments, and it ends in such climatic way. The whole thing is just plain perfect in my opinion.
