Bubble Bobble on the C64.

Yeah, i know it was a port of the arcade game.
I also know that it's been ported to just about every console since.

But the C64 version took advantage of the SID chip & sounded way better than any of the other ports.

Have to admit that the C64 did have a good sound chip, much better than the spectrum but the Amstrad CPC464 did so much more in the way of colours and sound, as far as I recall.

Spectrum has the best games.

And it also had,

There was an arcade game in the mid-to-late 80's called Solar Warrior (that was the title in the States, elsewhere it was known as Xain'd Sleena) with such whoop-ass background music. If I ever form a band, we will cover the score from Solar Warrior.

Sometimes I feel like I'm the only one who remembers this game at all. Thank God for YouTube!

I will say that one thing the Halo games did consistently kickass on was the score.

Castlevania
The very first console title, Castlevania, released for the NES in 1986 by Konami, was a typical platform game in which the player takes the role of Simon Belmont, a descendant of the Belmont clan, a family of vampire hunters. He travels to Dracula's demonic castle, Castlevania and fights his way through the castle destroying Dracula himself and the castle. Belmont's main weapon is a whip called "Vampire Killer", while the secondary weapons are powered by Hearts, collected by attacking candles and killing monsters. Secondary weapons available are Daggers, Holy Water (Fire Bomb), Flying Axe, Stop Watch and the Cross (Boomerang). Hidden items such as power-ups and food (health replenishment) items are also found by attacking walls within the levels, a feature inspired by Nintendo's Super Mario Bros. with countless hidden items across the game's levels.

The music for the first Castlevania game was composed by Satoe Terashima and Kinuyo Yamashita
