Having grown up in the 8 and 16 bit eras, melodic and catchy songs are what do it for me. Japanese compositions seem to fit the bill better than anything else. I feel Western video game soundtracks try too hard to stay in the background, but as any playwright or film director can tell you, music can be just as vital to a story as dialogue and imagery. I honestly couldn't hum a theme from a western game other than the elder scrolls theme, Deus Ex, Halo or some tracks from warcraft 2.

 

Right now this is all I need:

My favorite Tri-Ace song (well, Motoi Sakuraba song since he's behind the vast majority of music in all Tri-Ace games) is easily the end credits song for Star Ocean 2 for the PS1; We form in crystals. I think it's absolutely brilliant, and one of my favorite songs of all time.

as well as most of the music from PS:T (particularly deionarra's theme) and the main theme from BG2.

I remember reading those in graphic novel form back in the 80'es (translated from the original French). Never know they made a video game for them.

it's a simple but pretty neat strategy game. they tried to make an MMORPG called winds of war as well, but i dunno what came out of that one.

I'm surprised no one mentioned Diablo 2. It's easily the best video game music I've ever heard on several levels. The predominance of texture and overall atmosphere over melody, the unique, incredibly varied, live-yet-not-live sounding instrumentation (I don't know how to describe it), ominous, oppressive atmosphere like none I've ever heard - this music more than supplemented the experience, it defined it. I've been listening to it since I discovered the game 10 years ago and I'm still in awe. Matt Uelmen <3

Spice Opera was a fantastic soundtrack. Got all of it in my playlist, though I prefer Chani's Eyes:

I know I've already posted it (in this thread!) but I don't care as I am listening to it right now. Because it's awesome.
