Not a big fan of Oblivion, but I do love the music. Jeremy Soule's work in general is awesome.
I have a few other video game soundtracks..some of Mitsuda's stuff, and even the P4 soundtrack..(mostly for "Heartbeat, Heartbreak", heh.)
That said, I don't listen to video game music on a regular basis, outside of the games themselves of course.
Let see here, I got both Modern Warfare soundtracks,6 halo soundtracks,both GeoW soundtracks,both witcher soundtracks, the fallout 3 soundtrack, the killzone 2 soundtrack. the dead rising soundtrack, the crysis soundtrack, the bfbc2 soundtrack,the demons souls soundtrack, the ninja gaiden sigma 2 soundtrack,the Dragon Age soundtrack,the MGSIV soundtrack, both Mass Effect soundtracks,the GTAIV soundtrack,the FF13 soundtrack, and the uncharted 2 soundtrack.
Does that answer your question tc?
Not including licenced music in games I tend to judge a games music by how it fits in with the game, does it captures the proper spirit of the game or not.
Some of my favorites were:-
Forest Monks from Chaos Legions - It's a great tune that goes perfectly along with the pacing of that certain point of the game and the happenings with the onscreen action.
Theme of Ryu - Street Fighter 4 - It's just legend, I get goosebumbs when I play to this and I'm unbeatable except I'm not.
Overpass Stage - Street Fighter 4 again - I love this one, it reflects on the modernisation of Street Fighter 4 and the hardcore element to it is the type of music young kids might listen to, which is great because the background has lots of children watching and cheering on the fight.
Shadow Of Colossus - No link to this one, it has pretty good music all over it, it's all in bits and pieces and it hits all the right notes and is truely part of the whole experience.
Bad Girl - No more Heroes - This is totally No More Heroes, the best fight in the game with the tune to back it up. It's a kind of electronica you wouldn't think you'll listen to by itself but fits in perfectly with the pacing and theme of the battle.
shadow of the colossus and ico have great scores. team ico does such a good job with sound in general.LoG-SacramentTrue, and their implementation of the music is also masterful. The fights with the colossi in SOTC are made unforgettable not only for their epic scale but for the dramatisation that the music brings. Awesome game.

Awesome game. yeah, colossus fights are scored so brilliantly. you dont have just one theme for most fights. they mix in the colossus' theme with themes for stages of taking down the beast and it really emphasises both your progress and the drama. its heightened by the bleak world with no music for the other parts of the game.
[QUOTE="kurtoronie"][QUOTE="PannicAtack"]Ocarina of Time, Super Mario Galaxy, Final Fantasy X, Civilization IV Great music.PannicAtackAh, Civilization IV....no video game will ever beat its soundtrack Heck, I'm just talking about Baba Yetu. So awesome.
