  • Favourite Game Soundtracks?

    I was just going through my bookmarked sites and one of them was this blog post that had been linked a while back on Rock Paper Shotgun (here). It was about music from games that you like to hear outside of games, which got me all a-thinking. After listening to a load of music from older games that I used to play (links at the bottom of the post), I had a look at the Videogames Live website (Anyone here been? Is it good?) and saw that they were coming to London, date TBA. So, yay, I guess!
    Anyway, what I want to know, the information I hunger for most, that without I will never be satiated, is:

    What is your favourite piece of music from a game/soundtrack from a game?


    For me, the Orange Box soundtrack is one of my all-time favourites, along with the EVE Online and Mass Effect soundtracks.
    Overall, I think my favourite single track from a soundtrack is either Vigil from Mass Effect (the main menu music and the music you hear when you meet Vigil - again, link at the bottom), Mass Effect Theme (also from Mass Effect), Playing With Danger (Team Fortress 2) or Green Nebula (EVE Online).

    What are yours?



    Some of my favourites:
    Vigil - Mass Effect

    Green Nebula - EVE Online

    Older pieces that I still love:
    Halo Theme

    Medal of Honour: Allied Assault Theme

      I love Zelda. I've been to Videogames Live twice and have loved it. The National Symphony + Videogames is ultimate win in my books.

        The Elder Scrolls games have the best music, in my opinion.




        I like TOS's Opening for the Gamecube too.

          Put it this way: On my phone, my text message notification is the victory fanfare from final fantasy 9 and my email notification is the protoman whistle from mega man.

              I'll surprise everyone: I love the 2142 opening theme. I use it as a ringtone.

              I just downloaded this for my brother: Banjo-Kazooie Final Battle music.

                  Dear God, out of my favorite soundtracks the top two have already been mentioned - HW and Morrowind. Ah, the Morrowind soundtrack brings back such memories - the best music and by far my favorite game of all time. I guess it does not need to be reposted here. (The in game tracks were good as well but they did not compare to the main menu.

                  Mournhold - City of Light, City of Magic. Ah i can remember every in game quote from that game :)

                  I do not even remember how I came by it in the first place, but I just found my original Homeworld soundtrack disc with a few songs from Homeworld: Cataclysm as well I think.

                    I see some pretty good soundtracks have already been posted by others, so I'll just say a few that have not yet appeared on this thread:
                    Ace Combat Series:
                    -Zero:


                    -The Unsung War


                    -Naval Blockade


                    -Megalith - Agnus Dei


                    Although the musics I chose are all from the last mission of each game (except Blockade, but I wanted to add something a bit different and it's one of my favourite levels), and as such tend to be "epic" in nature, each game has a varied soundtrack made by various composers.


                    Okami
                    -Giving Kushinada A Ride


                    -Kamiki Village


                    -The Sun Rises


                    What can I say? A beautiful soundtrack for a beautiful game.


                    Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
                    -Crew Expendable


                    -Missile Launch


                    Harry Gregson-Williams, ladies and gentlemen. There's not much I can say about his music.


                    And now a few miscellaneous tracks from various games:
                    Mass Effect 2 (awesome OST for an awesome game)
                    -The End Run


                    Ultima Series (now that was a nice series of games and the music was actually pretty good for the time)
                    -Stones


                    Deus Ex (Warren Spector is a genius)
                    -Main Title


                    Dawn of War 2 (epic music for this fun and well-made game)
                    -Angels of Death (Space Marine Theme)


                    Well, I think those are enough links for a single post, although there are quite a few other soundtracks I loved out there.

                      It has to be the deserved reputation of a classic, WipE'out

                        Another Homeworld Favorite of mine:

                        Adagio for Strings



                        And just a quick one, The GRID Trailer music was nice, but the whole song is rather fail.

                          NOT THE MAIN THEME!!!


                          In the game series so it counts.


                          Fools Road intro for a long time



                          POE



                          I put this in my car stereo

                            I cannot believe I forgot about POE's loading tracks.

                              @ Sir-Nerd:
                              Ah yes, the PoE2 theme. That was excellent, thanks for reminding me.

                              I should perhaps add that there are a few great soundtracks available for free:
                              Dawn of War 2
                              World of Goo (strange but good)
                              Eve Online

                              If you know of any more please go ahead and add them!
