Note: the first 15 are in no specific order but the top 5 are in order of epicness.
Spider-Man&Venom: Maximum Carnage - "Carnage Rules"
An epic opening to one of the best Spider Man games of all time
Serious Sam: The First Encounter - "Fight 5"
When this song pops during an epic fire fight in Serious Sam, your adrenaline surges through your veins as you enter "The Zone"
Mirror's Edge - "Kate (Puzzle)"
I loved Mirror's Edge and this song was so soothing and relaxing. I still listen to it a lot.
Mortal Kombat 2 - "Character Select Screen"
Oh man, that riff. So amazing.
The Legend of Zelda - "Intro / Main Theme"
I grew up on the NES so I have to pay tribute, especially since The Legend of Zelda was one of the first video games I ever played
DOOM - "Episode 1 Mission 1"
The legendary "E1M1" theme from the original DOOM, who can forget?
Final Fantasy IX - "You're Not Alone"
Final Fantasy IX was my favorite Final Fantasy ever and when I heard this song for the first time, it was set in stone.
Super Metroid - "Lower Brinstar"
Super Metroid was a masterpiece for the SNES and its music definitely set the mood for the game.
Mega Man X - "Sigma Stage Select"
The Mega Man franchise has always had some of the best music, but this track takes the cake for me.
Final Fantasy VII - "Fight On!"
A most gnarly and epic fight theme.
Super Mario 64 - "Bowser's Theme"
One of my all time favorite drum beats ever. When I first heard this, I damn near crapped my pants.
Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island - "Big Bad Baby Bowser"
One of the best, if not THE best, Boss Fights of all time.
The Way Of The Exploding Fist - "Melbourne House"
Sorry for the Storm Trooper, but this was the only version I could find of the Commodore 64 classic.
StarFox 64 - "Ending Theme / Credits"
A fitting ending theme to one of the best StarFox games ever.
Battletoads & Double Dragon: The Ultimate Team - "Title Screen"
What's better than Battletoads? How about Battletoads And Double Dragon teaming up?!? Oh yeah.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - "Main Theme"
Definitely sends chills down your spine.
The Legend Of Dragoon - "Boss Battle 2"
This may seem out of place, but for me it fits right in. I would spend countless hours during my summer vacations playing The Legend Of Dragoon, so it holds a special place in my heart.
Castlevania: Lords Of Shadow - "Final Confrontation"
Castlevania is notorious for its massively epic scores and themes, and Lords Of Shadow has been their crowning achievement in my honest opinion.
Chrono Trigger - "Magus' Theme"
I first played Chrono Trigger about four years ago and Magus' Theme is still one of my all time favorite songs.
Castlevania: Symphony Of The Night - "Bloody Tears"
Bloody Tears was the cherry on top for Symphony Of The Night. The game featured some of the most epic, and still to this day, themes and songs within a video game. I am a huge Castlevania fan and listening to the music that accompanies almost any Casltevania game is well worth the price of admission.
Wait did I say 20? I meant 21.
Earthworm Jim - "New Junk City"
I can't believe I forgot about the legendary Tommy Talarico. The master composer of so many memorable and epic theme songs.
