    Anything involving the following composers:

    Nobuo Uematsu (Final Fantasy, etc.)
    Yasunori Mitsuda (Chrono Trigger, other Square games, etc.)
    Alexander Brandon, Dan Gardopee, Michiel Van Den Bos, and Andrew Sega - The Masters of Tracker, MOD and UMX (Deus Ex, Crusader No Regret/No Remorse, Unreal, UT, Jazz Jackrabbit, almost anything by Epic Games or strongly associated with the Unreal engine)
    Jeremy Soule (Total Annihilation, Morrowind, Oblivion, Icewind Dale, NWN, SupCom, KotOR, Unreal 2, etc)
    Frank Klepacki (Red Alert - Hell March, 'nuff said; many other Westwood games)
    Alexei Zakharov (X2 - The Threat, X3 - Reunion)

    I'm forgetting some, surely, but the above are my favourites.
    I could (and regularly do) listen to the music of those people for hours on end.

    Music = <3
    I've spent a lot of time building my skills in various areas of game development from coding to content-generation, but creating music for games is the only area I actually dream of doing as a career.
    Hopefully someday my own name will be mentioned in a thread like this - Then I'll be able to die happy. :p

    I'm glad to be of service. I was simply looking around the net for some interesting discussions based on game
    soundtracks and this one on the bit-tech forums seemed the most comprehensive. I didn't notice until after
    I'd signed up and posted that the previous post was made at the end of 2005!

    Oh man, that's amazing. I played so much Xenon 2 when I was younger but my old Amstrad couldn't run the sound
    back then. I was seriously missing out...

    I've got to admit the CT soundtrack is something special. I used to have a CD of that stuff, I wonder if it's still
    around here somewhere. :)

    Has to be...

    Doom I (especially the 1st level, but then again I love my metal :p)
    Halo 2 (Halo 1 was great, Halo 2 was the same but with guitar)
    Unreal Tournament (Added perfectly to the mentality of the game)
    Red Alert (Same reasons as Doom, Does anyone not like Hell March)
    FF7 (Just for its epicness)

    I will have to put a mention in for the Zelda games as well, they have flawless soundtracks.

    Is it right to include games that have soundtracks not specifically recorded for them? Surely they are just like compilation albums.

    That was hands down the best moment I had ever experienced in a game last year. Found myself unloading shotgun rounds in time with the music, it was almost a psychotically perfect dance.

    Jet Set Radio & JSR Future on the Dreamcast and XBox, never seen a game and soundtrack work so well together. Portals song does own all though.
