Stuff I like:

Diablo stuff is the best (w00t)

(There's also Mortal Combat music on that site)

 

And my absolute favourite is: :D

It's a bit too short for my taste though.

 

I also like BG series music, NWN, Morrowind and...I can't think of any more right now. ;)

Arcanum is probably number one - it's a refreshing surprise to find a string quartet in a computer game.

Morrowind was great, but repetitive. I hope Oblivion invests in a few more tunes.

 

Even people who thought the graphics were outdated and the gameplay weak acknowledge that the music for Quest for Glory V: Dragon Fire was excellent.

 

A special mention for the opera at the end of Gabriel Knight 2. This for me set the standard for how gripping the ending of a game should be.

FF8, Arcanum, and NWN are my top 3.

 

The IE games, FOs, JE, and other FF games come up in the second tier.

 

FF8 music is downloadable on this site if you're interested: :thumbsup:

NWN had music? :rolleyes:

 

Anyway, my all-time favorite has to be TIE Fighter. Not only were the tracks great, it featured dynamic music that meshed with the action better than in any other game I have seen since.

 

Some other games worth mentioning are SoA, WC1/2, and Half-Life.

I liked the music from American McGee's Alice. (okay, so the game ain't exactly new, but I still like the music)

Please review my fanfic!

Mark Morgan did a marvelous job both on Torment and F1/F2.

Star Control 2, biatches!

 

And that

Monkey Island 2 was the pinnacle of adlib music imo, although I never played Tie Fighter (they are probably quite similarly structured since both are by Michael Land).

 

In modern games, Icewind Dale takes the cake for its evocative score although I really like the Diablo 2 music. Deus Ex and System Shock had some great electronic music as well.

 

Recently the only music I have really appreciated is the tune in World of Warcraft that plays in Westfall among other places, it reminds me of The Wicker Man for some reason.

We now bring you live footage from the World Championship Staring Final.

Torment of course.

 

The Longest Journey has a nice score as well.

 

Icewind Dale has a very lovely soundtrack.

 

And for remixes, FFVI would probably be my favourite.

Final Fantasy VII, VIII, X Soundtracks

Baten Kaitos

KotOR 1&2

Deus Ex

Unreal

Old Lucasarts adventures like Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle, Grim Fandango etc...

 

I still don't understand what's so great about the Jade Empire's soundtrack, the title-track and the hymn of the waterdragon where the only ones standing out. The rest was the same that you can find in a Tai-Chi-video.
