    Anything by Westwood/Frank Klepacki, especially C&C: Red Alert.

    Oh, and by the way; It is spelled Tiberian Dawn :P :wink:

    For me, its the opening music from both Fallouts, the soundtracks of the first two Command & Conquer games, and the menu screen music from Crusader: No Remorse.

    The opening number for Unreal 2 ain't bad, either.

    Meh. In Germany the game was called "Der Tiberiumkonflikt", i.e. "The Tiberium Conflict".
    Also, they called Red Alert "C&C 2" and C&C 2 was called "Operation Tiberian Sun".
    With so many translation differences, how am I supposed to care?

    'sides, the first game will always be my favorite. It wasn't very complex, but the atmosphere was quite deep.
    Heck, the Nod ending was awesome.

    Too bad they dropped the serious undertone as of RA2. C&C2 was a joke already, but RA2 was a bloody parody.


    What I liked about Crusader 1 the most was the background music of the rebel hideout.

    I didn't like Red Alert much from the start. Putting in a Lara Croft rip-off instead of the Commando kinda killed it. That and all the weird comic stuff.
    If I play an evil brotherhood commander I want to torch those enemy civilian buildings, nuke the GDI headquarters and overrun the enemy with my legion of tanks.

    They screwed up C&C2, by taking the sci-fi fantasy road (ooh, mutants and aliens -- WHO CARES?), so what? Couldn't they just go back to the first game and make more of it? I miss those press conferences, news reports and video briefings.

    At least Renegade managed to recreate some of that feeling. The start was neat and some missions reminded me on C&C 1. Sadly they put too much C&C2 into it.

    Hmpf. Tastes are different I guess.

    in no particular order:
    -Fallouts
    -Mafia
    -The final fantasy series
    -Deus EX
    -Warcraft 2
    -Megaman series (despite the fact i was a master system boy)

    Special mentions go to the already mentioned Arcanum, diablo and operation:flashpoint for having great music, but not best game music material.

    Nine Inch Nails did a great job in Quake giving it an making it even creeppier.

    I'm really looking forward to hear what they have done in Doom 3. Honestly I think I'll wet my underwear.

    While I thought the music in the game was decent, it was no match to the score Vangelis did for the movie. :(

    Speaking of NIN, i didn't like the soundtrack for alice. i also hated the gameplay.

    i think what makes a game soundtrack good is when you hear the music, you think of the game, and vice versa. the music has to suck you in. i recall that the descent freespace soundtrack was quite immersive. i haven't played the game in a while, though, so i don't know for sure.

    the soundtrack for freedom fighters really fit the game.
