Mass Effect faunts is the only song that gets to me for a good reason and this song has aged well:

I was playing Rage 2 a while ago while playing the Quake 2 soundtrack in the background.

That was some really energetic music that got your blood puming. And totally fit all the chaotic battles going on in Rage 2.

I absolutely loved the metal and electro influences that worked really well in the Quake 2 soundtrack.

(btw, I've never played Quake 2, lmao)

Legit about to post that.

Quake 2 OST is GOAT. Steam selling it without the soundtrack is akin to genocidal war-crime.

  • Homeworld: Well I don't know about pumped up, but the most emotion-provoking songs gotta be from Homeworld, for me at least. After encountering my enemies and hearing their sort of tribal music and dealing with them, then heading back home and gutting my guts ripped out (courtesy of Barber's Adagio for Strings) while witnessing the genocide of my people, I was ready to kick some ass.
  • DOOM (2016) of course. The combination of electric and I don't know, industrial metal? is perfect for that game. Also fun little observation the beam of what I assume is argent energy from the spire in this video goes along with the songs hahaha
  • Oh and who could forget the most metal of game soundtracks, and the most metal of games...BRUTAL LEGEND! Remember when EA made great games?!?!

@PSP107: Ugh. My pick was better. Much, much better. If you’re going to pick a Street Fighter II tune at least pick something good like Ryu’s, Ken’s, or Guile’s stage theme.

Smackdown HCTP/SVR/SVR2006 all had amazing soundtracks. Same with Tony Hawk 1-4. Crazy Taxi All I Want is the best. NFS Underground and GTA VC get mentions too.

PS2 gen had the best music by far.

If we're talking about music I'd actually listen to away from gaming, the clear winner is Rock Band: AC/DC.

If we're talking about music lending itself to immersion and drawing me into a game, recently Tetris Effect has really impressed me. The confluence of that soundtrack along with those visuals and that game play is very zen.

Quake 2 ost, omg so awesome.

I also really like the jazzed up rainbow road theme on mario kart 8. The remake of the n64 track.

The 2 that come to mind are the soundtracks to Crazy Taxi (Dreamcast version) and Tony Hawkes Pro Skater.

As for an individual song i'm gonna go for Rusty Cage from Road Rash (Saturn)

Nowadays I very rarely listen to music in games i'd much rather listen to the sound of an engine :)

Tenka on the PS1 has an absolutely rockin' soundtrack: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLdqd62uSV6prvTorJ0msYc1do35Qd24Mc

You need a decent hifi or at least some good headphones to really appreciate the music.

Definitely one of my fav Third Strike tracks.

The remixed version for Online Edition is definitely more hype, but still prefer the smooth original.
