I just love this complete version of the James Bond soundtrack.

What are some of your favorites?

Fallout 3 comes to mind. A lot of catchy tunes on there that contradict the atmosphere in a surprisingly fitting way. I'm also digging the music for Metal Gear Solid V. Most Metal Gear Solid games I've played have great music. Silent Hill 2 also has a few haunting tunes I like.

How do you post youtube vids on here? I've been trying to figure that out for a while now. Whenever I hightlight text and click on Insert Video, it only allows me to post gamespot vids.

#22 Posted by outworld222 (2367 posts) -

What I do is click on the video tab, next to the image tab, and put the URL (youtube happens to be this instance)

Then I write some text when necessary.

#24 Posted by bbkkristian (14911 posts) -

Anything from Halo, Silent hill 2, Chrono trigger, Nier, and Donkey Kong Country are awesome soundtracks

#32 Posted by cyborg100000 (2840 posts) -

Nostalgia.

#33 Posted by platinumking320 (663 posts) -

NFS High Stakes had some seriously funky techno and breakbeats. Cant believe how much of that was in-house.

FF10 was varied enough to get a mention.

Silent Hill 3 was deep

GTA3 thru 5

Tekken 4 had some nice summery vibes, and I love the cage arena theme. They tried to attempt a little 'Linkin Park' with that

#34 Edited by donmurray29 (5 posts) -

Ace combat Electrosphere, doubt you can get it now

Jet set Radio Future, which is hard to get

#35 Posted by NightlyOne (318 posts) -

I enjoy a lot of different game soundtracks, but just to name a few of my top favorites:

  • Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
  • Demon's/Dark Souls series
  • Deus Ex (original and Human Revolution)
  • EverQuest
  • Heroes of Might & Magic 2
  • Legend of Zelda series (especially OoT/MM)
  • MegaMan (NES, plus X series)
  • Might & Magic 6
  • Nier
  • Silent Hill series
  • Turok (N64) series
  • Xenoblade Chronicles

The piano tracks that played during homebuilding on The Sims 1 also deserve an honorable mention. They're always soothing to listen to.

Everything in Journey is phenomenal. "Apotheosis" alone makes it incredible, but everything else is just as good, making it a marvelous score all-around. A fantastic example of music as narrative in games, and just plain beautiful music as well.

Demon's Souls is great, too. It's understated nature really helps instill the sense of dread that makes the game so damn intense. To cap it off with such a calm, lullaby-like song was the perfect touch. A real shame the subsequent games in the series have relied more on bombastic tunes instead. Not nearly as interesting or effective. (Though Dark Souls and its sequel still have some noteworthy tracks.) I wrote an article about it a while back for anyone interested.

Other soundtracks worth mention:

I'm currently listening to the music from League of Legends' Dominion map.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W3hlRIY2UhI

Even if you hate the game, give this a listen because it's freaking awesome! The music gradually gets more intense the closer it gets to finishing so it can really pump you up!
