    Black. It went unnoticed and scorned by most of the gaming community, esp. since it was a console-only FPS (god only knows why). Had an awesome piece of neo-classical music on the title.
    Otherwise, it's Quake (trent reznor) or Doom 3 (trent reznor's former drummer, booyah!)

    Isn't it just. :D

    I fooking love video game music. So many memorable themes. To me the music is an integral part of the game.


    Oh, how about the music from Twilight Princess, some of the best in the series (though I do love the 8 bit rendition from Links Awakening DX on the GB). I love just taking Epona and riding around listening to the music. Absolutly Epic.:lol:

    Edit: Almost forgot about Snowboard Kids, one of my favorite games on the N64 and of all time. Amazing music http://www.vgmusic.com/music/console/nintendo/n64/SBKQuicksandValley.mid

    The soundtrack for FF7 was absolutely destroyed in the PC version. That's 80% of the reason I have to use the PS1 version (the other 20% being that the keyboard just does NOT work for that game). I can only assume FF8 had the same thing happen, but I could never find the PC version in stores.

    Whoever mentioned Zelda: TP... dunno where it was, but there was one piece in there that I absolutely loved. When Midna was in trouble halfway through or something like that. I could swear that it wasn't on the OST, or I just liked it a lot better when I was playing.
    edit - scratch that... checking the playlist of an "alternate" version, apparently I'm missing 2/3 of the music

    Also, Otherworld in FFX is pretty badass. The revamped version by The Black Mages (Uematsu's band) is pretty nice as well, but has a TOTALLY different feel to it that wouldn't have worked at all in the actual game.

    The music was agreeably good, but not beautiful, which is probably what some people are really aiming for.

    Plus, H-L only had one or two bits of music; they were sparse, moody, etc. but nothing you'd put on your mp3 player (final fantasy, on the other hand...well, I know people who have all the game scores on CD...)
    I'd forgotten about battlefield 1942. That had an awesome theme.

    uber bump from the dead, i'm gonna make another thread for voting only in the next few days. (unless a moderator would be kind enough to put in all the games people have listed here, i'd happily do it myself but ain't got the option to)

    so, any final suggestions for best game music? i'm gonna say civiliasation series because the music was legendary.

    Well, the title says somputer game music and if anyone doesn't know, the music to Oblivion is in the game folder and can be easily made into a playlist. (I can't remember the file path though :p) Jeremy SOule did a wonderful job on it.

    My absolute favorite game soundtrack? (happens to be my favorite game too) is Chrono Trigger. Wonderful music, and you can find a massive symphonic remix at ocremix.org and a remake of allot of tracks at the Chrono Compendium.

    Another that should be mentioned is the Castlevania Series. The work put into the music for ALL of the games is amazing and should not be unnoticed. Who doesn't recognise Vampire Killer?

    Okay, one more. The Metroid Series. The Brinstar theme is quite memorable indeed. If you get a chance, check out Metroidmetal.com They did some fantastic remixes sure to bang some heads.

    Geez I could go on and on.....

    I think the most atmospheric and appropriate music in a game has to be MGS - hands down. However, I think for the "Best" music in a game, you need look no further than "To Zanarkand" from Final Fantasy X. Just a quiet, slow piano piece, but it's absolutely stunning.


    Of course, this is discounting the Monkey Island main theme, which still makes me feel like I'm at primary school when I hear it.

    Anyway - one of the best things to do is have a quick search of youtube for "Video Game Piano" - there are so many videos of people actually performing some surprisingly good renditions of Video game music. Aside from the usual "Oh, look at me, I can play the Mario theme blindfolded" weirdos, look out for the "Final Fantasy medley" - it's absolutely awesome.
