Music that you like from games you didn't play

I came across something that reminded me of a game I heard about a while ago called Another Eden, a Japan exclusive mobile game with music by Yasunori Mitsuda. I looked up a couple songs so far and it really sounds like stuff that could've been in Chrono Trigger or Chrono Cross. I haven't played the game and probably won't ever be able to, but I still appreciate its music.

Any games you haven't played but still enjoy their music?

chrono trigger is a fantastic soundtrack but i only played like 5 minutes of that game (feel free to kill me)

also just downloaded the stardew valley soundtrack on a whim and it's pretty nice

I've always liked the Halo theme.

Never touched the 3rd (or 1st or any other) Crash game, but I listened to this song all the time on VGmusic. It was the midi version, but it wasn't too far off the original.

I still haven't *beaten* (or played more than about half of) Mother 1 and it has some of my favorite tracks in the series, does that count? Same goes for Persona 2: Innocent Sin, in fact. But since I have played both of those games and love them it may in fact not count.

P much the entirety of Sonic Mania's OST would fit here though. Still haven't played that game because I just don't like classic Sonic gameplay as much, but the soundtrack is ballin'.

Some music can count even if you played a game but haven't reached a point where a song you like is available to hear yet, such as an ending theme or something. In fact, I played but haven't beat Donkey Kong Country 3 but I have heard and enjoyed the majority of the soundtrack.

Classic Sonic gameplay could be great with a few tweaks. It feels like there's not enough time to react to hazards while going fast, which is why Sonic is fun, so you don't go fast...which is not fun. Kind of counter-intuitive.

I never even came within a hundred yards of playing Final Fantasy XI, but this song is phenomenal.

I've only played a few minutes of Undertale (on somebody else's save), and I don't have any pressing desire to ever play through the game myself, but it does have some excellent music.

I'm a fan of most of the Castlevania soundtracks, but as p.much anyone will tell you, I suck at platformers etc

I made it most of the way through Undertale, but I never heard "Megalovania" in game, so I guess that counts.


Command & Conquer also has some really good music. This is a cover, but it's basically the original with guitar and I like it slightly more:

I’ve never played Final Fantasy VII, but it’s impossible not to know that game’s greatest hits...since, you know, they’re fantastic.

Here’s a cover of J-E-N-O-V-A that has ruined me because it’s so good that I can’t listen to any other version of the song

Not quite the theme that plays when you fight the inspiration for Flowey from Undertale, but still good nonetheless.
