    I'm loving this particular song here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SF5mf4LV7Jw
    Good stuff I like it

    I've been listening to chiptune music and more game soundtracks. I kinda wish there would be more artists that compose songs with the same kind of structure as a chiptune song but with better quality synths/samples. That NES sound is repetitive after a while. Prefer stuff like:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m-KdDvwrDFA
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cvm1aR8FrNg

    You could argue that some of these songs are just another genre I guess. Like the megaman song could be considered metal with a synth in the lineup but tbf, the typical electro-metal band don't structure their songs like a game soundtrack. There's not as much emphasis on that memorable theme/motif/lead. Or, if anything, it is replaced by the singer's voice and the few instrumental pieces are just not the same. Best I could find so far is this guy:

    As for Chiptune, I'm mostly just into Mega Man. Grew up with it, and it was probably the gateway into electronic music. I like that last track in particular you posted. You seem to like the modern, complex stuff.

    As for fan gaming stuff, I'm more into rock/metal stuff. Like this guy Little V who has done metal songs based on SC music:

    Elguitartom is the master of Doom metal. E1M8 is my favorite: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uBhxLwxI2mI
