I was thinking of doing something akin to the NinDB Top 25 without actually showcasing 25 favourite games (because it's not like our opinions are going to change annually). This long video is the result. (See YouTube comments for quick seeking)
I picked my 3 favourite songs per system (without picking the same game twice), and added a few other songs that I like but didn't quite make it. This list can actually go on and on, but I wanted to keep the scope clear.
At first, I was going for top 4 or 5 per system, but I couldn't think of anything good enough for NES and N64 (at least with Nintendo-published games), and the honourable mentions was how I worked around that. On the other hand, I can probably dedicate a section for Dreamcast, but that would look weird in this otherwise Nintendo-centric video.

I like to think music is the philosophy of the soul. I guess that's why we evolved to have ears, smell (the most ancient believed) was not enough for us; dogs however yes but they can't see as well (cognitive trade-off theory).
I like Space Tank/X-Scape series' tunnel scene - also Starfy series, Tomato Adventure, *thinking* Kaeru no Tame ni Kane wa Naru, Yuyuki, Time Twist, Pokémon series, Sutte Hakkun Kirby's Dream Land 3 and Kirby Triple Deluxe music. When I'm sad, Midna's Lament, but the most powerful to my heart is Song of Healing from Majora's Mask, and I will never forget N's emotion theme from Pokémon Black/White either - the idea of truth/ideals spoke loudest during my psychosis. www.youtube.com/watch?v=WxPOSrrWjJY - it was like: Ghetsis theme was the true rigidity (N proved them wrong in a mysterious way), Ghetsis' song felt simply a chant for him, however N "who was called not to have a human heart" had that linked theme. Song of Healing feels like a mixture of both, which is why it is both so potent but awakening when you need it.
nocturnal YL: In a way, I'm glad I'm unrelated to those fan communities of the games I play. I just sit back and play games casually, not really caring whatever scandals or elitism or holier-than-thou attitudes going on.

Shrikeswind: I think I need to track down some horribly cursed Pokemon content now after that. You know, since that was such a heavy topic to drop in the middle of a quiet forum.

Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.
