i dont think LB 2 and especially 1 need to be memtioned.

LB music was much like SC music to me. Not memorable, but fit the setting and set the atmosphere tone really, reall well. Basically it served it's purpose and didn't stick out.

I think music is way more important to a FG than a lot of people give it credit for. Especially back in the pre-interwebs days of gaming. I hated MVC2's music to the point where I returned the game. Luckily SNK seems to have great music most of the time.

That being said King Lion's theme in NGBC is one of my favorite boss themes ever, it foreshadows his ferocity in an appropriate way. On the same vein Kim Jae Hoon's theme in Garou is similar in reflecting his character; it shows his gentle badassery.

Music definitely has to be good in a fighting game, just like any other. It's going to be something you will play for hours on end whether it be practice or vsing. You always need a good Ost to make a game stand out. It's also what makes certain characters memorable. For example Iori's atarashi no saxophone is his theme over the years he gets remixed iterations but for the most part its synonymous with him.

Music is always important. Remember how MVC2's Jazz soundtrack was ridiculed. It sets the mood and is absolutely essential? Where would we be without the Guile Theme? What about Yashiro's absolutely badass KOF98 theme? Or Billy Kane or Geese's theme?

Once again, I'll play necromancer. After all, this is thread that I started five years ago :)

Anyways, I decided to make YouTube playlist, where I gathered all my favorite tracks from KOF-series. I had to exclude some songs, that the playlist wouldn't be dominated by certain games, like 96 and 2000. I included main entries from the series, 94-XIII plus Neowave and 2002UM. I left the handheld games, Maximum Impact-series and possibly some KOF games I might not have heard of, because I haven't played those games.

Hardest part of making this list was every game before '98, because I haven't played those games, but I had listened the soundtracks of those. Finding good quality OST uploads of certain games like 97, 2000, 2001 and 2003 was also difficult, because AST's were most common.

Anyways, I hope enjoy and feel free tell your own favorites and disagree with some of my choices :)
