As we know, all the best fake video game guitars are on the Genesis, but SOME of them are on the CPS2.
Anyway let’s share our favorite fake/synthesized video game guitar music.
Wolf Child. This one’s absolutely tops. I love how they modulate, fade, and add octaves to this thing. It rules.
Wolverine Adamantium Rage. This first track is basically some doom/sludge right here, and it rules. Dirty as heck, and it turns out it was this guy’s first soundtrack.
SFa2 Gold Gen Theme. Honestly I didn’t know this oft-used Capcom synth was supposed to be a guitar for a long time. But I kind of like it more for that? It has drama, that’s for sure!
Devil’s Crush. King of the solo!! I hate guitar solos, but I like this one (because it’s not a real guitar).
Xeno Crisis. I feel like not enough people realize that this is seriously one of the top action games on the genesis bar none. But anyway this song in particular sounds like something tommy tallarico would step over his own mother to have written (p.s. tallarico is banned from this thread, owned)
Here’s another one
I mean beat that!
Road Rash. Can’t have a thread like this without the original genesis ear-destroying synth. I loved this as a kid, then hated it later on, and now I love it again. It’s like a needle in your ear but it’s used well.
I’ve got some sort of CPS2 game knocking around in my brain that I can’t quite place, a marvel one I think… if I can find it I’ll drop it in here.
Anyway what have y’all got.
