What's your favorite game soundtrack?

Post by Rheini » Tue May 19, 2009 6:24 pm

Just recovered my old soundtrack I once ripped off of Conquest: Frontier Wars. I love that one.
Any other nice music you've encountered? :)

During the countless times I've played Ascendancy (space x4 game) I've really come attached to the tracks.

I uploaded them once by request:
http://www.xentax.com/audio/theme00.mp3
http://www.xentax.com/audio/theme01.mp3
http://www.xentax.com/audio/theme02.mp3
http://www.xentax.com/audio/theme03.mp3
http://www.xentax.com/audio/theme04.mp3

Also, I was blown away by the music in Command and Conquer 1. That was really something at the time, and still!

I really love the music in Morrowind, simply brilliant.

And not to forget, the music in Doom (1).

And finally on my growing list is WarCraft 2. I could hum along all the tracks while playing yet another battle.

Here's my favorite from Conquest, background music for the terran player: http://ul.to/o2vhbo

Oh and of course I forgot the loading music for the El Alamein map in BF42, addicted to that one :) http://ul.to/0tdf6y

Hmm i dont know if i can pick a favirote game soundtrack to be honest.


Il give alittle list instead

Final Fantasy 8 (as you can guess from my name...i love this game...and its OST)
Final Fantasy 7
Metal Gear Solid 1 (enclosure...is just an epic tune...makes me so sad...though i am easily moved by music...).
Klonoa: Door to Phantomile (Its got some seriously happy songs).
Sonic Adventure 2 (mainly just a few levels and the themes for the Chao area's)
Sonic 3..(im sorry but seriously...can anyone say that ICE CAP ZONE 1 ISNT an amazing song...).

Thats all i can come up with right now.
I listen to a lot of movie OSTS though, right now im hooked on the Crows ZERO OST.
"Lemons are people nice hardworking & honest people too..."

Here's some midi files from Doom. I remember back in the day I heard them in Adlib. Still, you get the idea.

I can't say much for oldies (or games in general, I really don't play enough... :( ), but I've grown quite fond of the theme to Mirror's Edge, and one of the tracks for level 8.

As said over there: Warcraft II, Doom I, Ultima Underworld I, HoMM II to IV, Age of Empires, Tetris (haha), Neverwinter Nights I (supreme ambient music by Jeremy Soule)...

These are the ones I have in my head. If I had to mention those which I've found simply "good", but I don't remember now, it may take me a complete book :D
