I loved a lot of the intros back in my younger days of console RPGs. Something about the magic they evoked, beautifully orchestrated choruses and often traditional animation frames brought together some inspiring imagery. Looking back I can recall many occasions where I'd just load up the game to listen to the intro music and then some years later I found a way to pull the midi files for them from a local BBS. Yes kids, I'm a relic of an age gone by. The days of CRAMM (Classic Roleplaying Adventure Midi Music) are long gone. Sure MP3s are great and remastered classics sound fantastic, but nothing beats nostalgia, its memory fades till nothing is left but perfection.

Thanks to Classic Contagious Gaming for giving us some Intros to listen to:

HEHE thanks man and yep there are tons of games I would load up just to watch the intro and listen to the music.  Sooo many on the Sega Saturn and yes there were tons on the ole Commodore 64 as well.

I think Video Games Live provides a great introduction for those gamers who haven't gotten a chance to hear the really great video game music from years' past.
