    Indeed! Brings back such fond memories of that game.

    The way they butchered it speaks volumes for just how unimaginative Beth are... "dovakin dovakin, hurr durr durr..."

    Hotline Miami 2 probably got one of the best SOT's I've ever heard.
    I especially love Untitled, Divide, Around, The Way Home, NARC, Fahkeet and She Swallowed Burning Coals.

    i always like game soundtrack based on solely judge on the setting/lore overall. but this DS3 music blowed me. its like japanese interpretation on romantic european dark age were grim enough.

    this soundtrack are haunting, yet beutiful at same time. it gives you the feel of how this crapsack world were just used to be fine place to lives.

    Obviously Fallout 1/2, Silent Hill, C&C Red Alert.
    As for things not mentioned before:

    Dark Reign - The Future of War (Jeehun Hwang 1997):

    A really solid classic theme very suited for the game.

    FTL (Ben Prunty 2012):

    A bit simplistic, but the vibe of space exploration suits the game perfectly.

    Quake 2 (Sonic Mayhem 1997)

    While heresy in most circles, I think this is actually more suited for Quake than Trent Reznor's take on it.

    Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines (VA 2004)

    VtM:B's soundtrack also grew on me. A lot. Especially stuff like the Hollywood theme. Totally chillax. If you want to calm me down, just play this, I'll mellow out.

    I'm a big fan of the metro series' soundtrack.


    And the sound track in metal gear rising: revengeance (I hate that name) has a pretty kick-ass sound track that fits really well.

    Haen't played this game yet but I really like this song. Pretty eerie.

    Some other songs that come to mind which have not been mentionned in the thread yet (I think):




    Shit, that song is fantastic. Another reason to play the game ASAP.

    I love the game and the soundtrack, but it's sad that the Devs went radio silent and haven't announced anything since Avanced Edition. *sigh*
    :replays it with the Stealth Bomber A again, dies, and goes with the Kestrel B:

    Yup. The artwork, lore depth, soundtrack, and ambient sounds/sound effects of Endless Space and Endless Legend are the absolute best in the gaming world in my opinion.

    Take any of the Metal Gear series and I guarantee you'll find more than a couple of great songs. Everything about those games is classic.
