    Since Ground Control, Deus Ex and UT99 were already mentioned I'll post something else that helped to format my music preferences.

    Excellent game :)
    Glad someone likes it - such a well made game. I've reinstalled it on SSD and added some graphical mods and probably going to do a Youtube play-through of it along with a couple of other games TBD :)

    OK, so most of my favourites have already been posted. One of my favourites from the BBC micro: Spellbinder.



    I seem to remember that if you reduced the volume of the music in game by increments, it not only made the music quieter, but it also gradually cut out the notes, while preserving the melody. Genius. I really liked the game too - it was mysterious, and brutally hard in places, and it had a really big map of linking rooms which I drew out on bits of paper all sellotaped together.

    The award for most criminally misused soundtrack goes to: Rollercoaster Tycoon 3.

    It's a great game with a really surprisingly fantastic soundtrack - rather than going for the cliche annoying carnival music, Alistair Lindsay wrote some really nice tracks for it. The only problem is you barely get to hear the soundtrack in-game, so it's really worth downloading the soundtrack from GOG (you do own the game on GOG, right?) and listening to it out-of-game.

    No videos on YouTube, but I really enjoyed the Quality Quartet's music in Frontier: First Encounters.
    - If the sound of Samuel Barber's "Adagio For Strings" makes you think of Kharak burning instead of the Vietnamese jungle, most of your youth happened during the 90s. -

    X-com had one of the best soundtracks of the last few years.

    Best game soundtracks?

    There has probably been a thread on this at some point. Regardless, what are your favorite sound tracks? We are talking original compositions, or niches bits of music here.


    for me, here are a few;

    Hardwar 1998, Elite-like set entirely on Titan. All its music is from late 90s Warp records catelog https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jJwTc5NcyRs, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z5pGSUTyLgc

    Tribes 2 2001, this got mentioned on the site by the journos not to long ago, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1D0v6qFV6mw, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EpVhhNGXOrY

    Red Alert 1996, sort of an obvious pick just for the Hell March https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tb-gI_pFog0

    X3 Reunion 2005, for some silly reason they didn't include this track in the two later X3 games. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=icms6Y1ChxI, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yFXK...V_6inhRjL7mjiJ

    Machinarium 2009, Tomas Dvorak is a boss https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jex5rtwx94k, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OYd7PbGEOus


    Hotline Miami 2012, another sort of ovbious pick that uses a lot of rather unknown electronic artists

    I also quite like the Deus X soundtracks.

    I don't have a link but I've always loved the Eve soundtracks for chillout purposes. Alot of times I'd have Eve in the background while I did other things on the PC. Granted I may or may not have been mining but meh.. ;)

    Most things from Blizzard. When I was playing WoW, I sometimes just started it for the music.
    Also, everything from Jeremy Soule. Special mentions for Morrowind and Guild Wars 2.

    Transistor's soundtrack by Darren Korb with vocalist Ashley Barrett is really great.

    Final Fantasy is renowned for having great soundtracks, especially the episodes scored by Nobuo Uematsu. Plus there's a wealth of material around them: he has a band, The Black Mages, that revisits his own FF songs in progressive metal style, and on the other hand the piano collections rearranged the songs for solo pianists. But the base songs are so good, that they work in every genre.

    To The Moon has a great piano OST.
    Mirror's Edge has some nice music by Solar Fields, and the main theme is also quite good, although I didn't like Lisa Miskovsky's other stuff.

    And of course: Baiyon's work for Pixeljunk Eden

    I seem to recall the ambient twinkling and more involved pieces of Assassin's creed 2 being excellent.
