    Favourite Game Music

    Planescape: Torment - Main Title

    Planescape: Torment - Deionarra Theme

    I really like the PS:T music for being somewhat thought-provoking as well as atmospheric, the above two being the prime example.

    Red Alert 2 - Hell March

    [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9WqwFhX6Cqg[/youtube]

    Goes without saying, I happen to like this one more than the original and third remix.

    So what are some of your favourite game music?

    there's a lot and I can't mention all of it now...

    but a few from the top of my head:

    the music in Halo in general, I love it.

    the "town-music" in Baldur's Gate. I remember they had it in BG2 as well but they had completely ruined it.

    the drum'n'bass track from System Shock 2.

    pretty much all music in Final Fantasy VII. so many memories...

    all music in Mega Man 2.

    one of the tracks from Disciples. can't even remember how it sounds right now, it's been so long. but when it came on I actually stopped playing and just sat there and listened.

    I love the Civ4 music.

    Believe it or not, The Sims 2 had some pretty decent metal/Spanish music original recordings.

    FFVIII has good music as did FFXI and VI.

    Best game soundtracks? Easy.

    The Neverhood by Terry S. Taylor
    Doom by Robert Prince (and all the bands he ripped off)
    Quake II by Sonic Mayhem
    Deus Ex by Alex Brandon
    Fallout 1/2 by Mark Morgan

    I've probably forgotten a couple.

    On with Neverhood goodness.

    I'd like to add:
    Starcraft, escpially:
    - Terran 2&3, Main Menue, Protoss 2

    Heroes of Might and Magic 2:
    - Terrain 04 & 06 (town music was always terrible)

    Conflict: Freespace 2

    Outcast
    - its orchestral and you can find it for free on the internet

    Diablo 1
    - Tristram (I was a bit disappointed by D2 music)

    F1&F2 & Deus Ex ofc
    (hearing HK Market on my MP3 player while walking through a chinese city is just awesome!)

    KKND 2 also had three nice tracks, the trashy 80 popjazz melted nicely with the trashgame

    The Touhou games' music probably wins hands down (youtube it if you've never heard it)

    BG2 is likely a close second.

    Liked a lot of the stuff already posted, Deus Ex, Planescape, Arcanum, Fallout, and Nobuo Uematsu.

    Might & Magic 6 had some great tunes.

    I'm adding the amazing VtM: Bloodlines music (not just the licensed songs), and also the soundtrack for Legendary: The Box, which is actually similar enough to it to make me think it was by the same author (Rik W. Schaffer), but it's not.

    Final Fantasy VI and VII have great music.
    [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ExqC2T232sk[/youtube]
    Crusader No Remorse and No Regret also have great music.
    [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gpf6zfQVAQ8[/youtube]
    BG have some nice songs.
    This one is probably my favorite from there... To bad its so short :/

    Knights of Honour, is one of the most underrated games ever.
    It had lots of very good music, here just one example. If you like medival/epic music try finding "Glorian".

    Ave Maria in Hitman, really beautiful!

    haha, agreed, even better sometimes 8-)

    Yeap same here. I kinda like BG1 more than BG2 game wise, not only music wise. Seems like most people agrees on that BG2 is the better part of the two? I wounder why.

    Witcher Tavern song, anyone?

    [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KzaDb5wFLH8[/youtube]

    Well, the battles are less repetative, the general class system is expanded and better implemented. I personally found BG1 a bit too slow and boring for my taste - it neither had the engaging story of PS:T or the fun battles of BG2, and too much wandering around (hate that, one of the reasons I don't like FO3). Music-wise, I'd say the two are about even.
