    World of Goo and the snippets of menu music in TF2 are rather good

    Come to think of it, the music was virtually the only thing I liked about Braid, but I REALLY liked it.

    Braid is indeed a contender for best - albeit non-original, IIRC -game music.

    However, my favourite original game score is probably Mark Morgan's score for Torment.


    For best main theme, Inon Zur's theme for Throne of Bhaal is quite impressive, as is Danny Elfman's for Fable.

    (Much to my surprise, the latter, as I am not an Elfman fan; or remotely close to that.)

    I'd forgotten about Battlefield! Probably *the* most iconic main theme of the last decade.

    Edit: Back when I bought Battlefield 1942, my Pentium III really wasn't up to the challenge of actually running it, but I booted it up anyway, just to listen to the theme as the maps loaded. True story!

    All the talk of unreal reminded me:

    By far the most enjoyable soundtrack to snipe to when floating around on an asteroid.

    One of my personal favourites:

    The music from Braid is also amazing, and very good for listening to while playing Minecraft.

    Assassin's Creed 2 and Brotherhood also have very lovely and awesome music:

    The Beyond Good and Evil soundtrack is all kinds of amazing, from the made up languages to the way it goes absolutely everywhere.









    The whole thing can be found here.

    I'm quite delighted that I own the Frozen Synapse soundtrack. It's really not my style, but oh so good.

    And thanks to whoever posted the brilliant Diablo 1 soundtrack up there. Ah, memories...


    /edit:

    I can't pass a game music thread without promoting my favourite game music composer of all times, Chris Hülsbeck of Rainbow Arts, some of the biggest guys in European Amiga/C64 publishing/development.

    A few years ago, this happened (and it was brilliant):

    hi i am going to revive this thread instead of creating a new one

    so here's my favorites:







    i think the soundtrack is even better than the game. this is no faint praise, since the game itself is decent

    also see: battlefield 1943 theme, the bit.trip series, and mirror's edge

    I wish they had played a orchestral version of the M.U.D.S. theme. Still, brilliant CD.

    Hated the game, but the soundtrack CD I got with the beta pack was pretty good.



    Also, more VVVVVV love. This music makes me play better:

    ...and one more for luck.



    One of the best uses of a pretty, relaxing soundtrack used as a counterpoint to the nail-biting tension and horrific violence that's going on with the game.

    Also, reminds me of Christmas.

    (It's the BGM used in the open PvP zone in World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King, for the uninitiated. A place where the best fishing, herb gathering and mining could be done, and where you could and probably would get ambushed and murdered by other players, without warning, if you took your eye off the ball for even a second.)

    Silent Hills have always been my favourites, especially 2 and 4.

    Other good ones that have sticked to my mind: The Witcher, Frozen Synapse, VVVVVV, Solium Infernum, Monkey Islands, Stronghold, Medieval: Total War (the first), Tropico, Final Fantasies (the ones with Nobuo, ofc) and Max Paynes.

    i didn't really like descent 2, but it was one of those games with great soundtracks (tm). one of the guys from skinny puppy had their hand in this one.

    The tracks from Guilty Gear X remain a favourite of mine. Some excellent stuff there, especially Potemkin's theme "Burly Heart".

    I'll almost always (and invariably if it's a non-narrative game) turn the in-game music off and put my own on - I think I've been doing this since I first got a stereo and a moderately sized music collection. I'm at work (not working) reading this so I can't listen to anything here, but the responses lead me to believe I might be missing out...

    Still, the last in-game music that left an impression on me?

    Streets of Rage 2, 1993. Awesome.

    I've played so many games I don't even want to think about counting them, but nothing has ever come close to the OST's of Chrono Trigger and Shenmue for me.

    Still listen to these regularly. even though I played them as a little kid. Oh the beauty of nostalgiafagging.
