Hey, there.

You should probably check out the thread Favourite Game Theme in The Round Table forum (hmm, probably should be in this forum, shouldn't it?).

But as I said there . . .

Quote from: "Melda"
Arcanum soundtrack, by Ben Houge -- gorgeous.

Morrowind soundtrack, by Jeremy Soule -- immersive (just hearing the soundtrack makes me want to reinstall the game and waste another three months of my life!).

Edit: I just realised another . . . a classic old game -- Duke Nukem 3D. And not just the cool rock-styled intro music, but all of the in-game music, too. And there was a track written for every single level of the game! Over two hours of music!


And now that you mention it, I seem to remember liking the music from Return to Castle Wolfentein, too.

The Neverhood Chronicle, by Terry S. Taylor

That's the sort of a soundtrack you can NEVER forget.

The music is as bizzare as the game itlself. I can't cathegorise it, I suppose it's something close to jazz, but it's very, very weird.

Just read some "lyrics" here, if you want to get at least slight idea on what I'm talking about...  Cheesy

Edit: I forgot to add that in the game, there is a puzzle involving radio. For that purpose T. S. Taylor made several "radio stations", including my favorite "Sound Effects Record #32. Man reading (pause), man relaxing (pause), woman in outer space (pause)..." etc.

I think my fav game sound track of all time has got to be Jeremy Soule's soundtrack for Icewind Dale.
He says it's the one he is most proud of himself, and so he should be. It's so atmosferic and beautifull...

I myself find the Soul Calibur 2 and 3 soundtracks to be really good. Worth getting, I'd say. What else is there that hasn't already been said...well, Super  Smash Brothers Melee had some good stuff (granted, most of it is remix versions of lots of nintendo music, but it is good), as well as Metal Gear Solid, naturally. Eternal Darkness had some interesting stuff and nobody will ever forget the infamous Final Fantasy. One that's perhaps less well known is Redguard, one of the Elder Scrolls more ancient projects. It's music's fantastic. That's one of the soundtracks I used to listen to, arrange and play on piano for months on end before leaving it for a while, then coming back to it only to find myself hooked again XD. I think that's a fair list there...

I said it before but I'll say it again... Shadow of the Colossus.  Especially the battles with the Colossi songs are really good.  I think Kow composes some of the best - if not the best - melodies out there.  The music has a very dramatical tone without trying to be excessively spectacular, which IMO happens too often these days.

- World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade(OST and In-Game) by Russel Brower, Derek Duke and Matt Uelmen
- Diablo 2 and Expansion OST by Matt Uelmen
- Heroes of Might and Magic 5 soundtrack by Rob king & Paul Romero
- Heroes of Might and Magic III soundtrack (I don't know composers - probably the same as in HoMM 5)
- Dark Messiah of Might and Magic OST by Cris Velasco and Sascha Dikiciyan

- Ice Wind Dale 2 OST (don't know the composer)
- Ice Wind Dale OST by Jeremy Soule

There are few others, but now I can't think of any Smiley So now we go to movies:

And that's all I can think of now. There is much more music out there, that I enjoy, and I haven't listed even the half of what I listen to addictively Smiley Hope helped someone  Wink

Star Wars composer unknown?

*laugh*

John William's the most well-known film composer in the world, as far as I'm aware. Tongue

Soul Calibur soundtracks, it's a compilation of soundtracks that are just epic.
Morrowind and Icewind dale soundtracks. I still listen to those. 40 hours into morrowind and I'm still not tired of the 7 some tracks it has.
Final Fantasy 12, tactics and Odinsphere soundtracks. Sakimoto's music is enshadowed by Uematsu's riegn over popular VG culture.  Uematsu writese better thematic music but Sakimoto writes strait out of impressionism, his textures are equivilant to Ravels work and is structurally and theoretically much more sophisticated than most music you ever hear. ever. the FFXII track is a masterpiece that lends itself to the storyline precisely.

Ah yes, I recently got FFXII and it does indeed have a good soundtrack...then again, I've come to expect that from those games ^^. And yeah, I mentioned Soul Calibur briefly before; it does have great music. And with the more complex story modes and stuff happening now with the 3rd game and I assume subsequent games, there's more room for the music writers to experiment. I'm a big fan of the Devil May Cry soundtracks as well - particularly the cinematic music in the the 3rd game.
