Video Games: Best Music and Original Soundtracks

66 posts in this topic

I was just pondering what other people see as the best music out of all video games, whether it be a single video game or a series.

I always liked the soundtrack from The Witcher.

I loved the atmospheric ambient music out of Mirror's Edge. So much so that I bought the soundtrack, and eventually all the other albums by the composer (Solar Fields).

Black Moon CHronicles (old game with amazing soundtrack)

This board would support karma points, i would have given a dozen of them at once for mentionning Pierre Esteve fabulous pieces of work on Black Moon Chronicles.

The whole soundtrack album is full of great pieces like this, it has always been my favorite "game" soundtrack album, really high quality work. I remember i even went to buy the soundtrack CD directly just after discovering the "trailer" on a magazine cd at the time that featured some of those musics.

Found it on youtube too :

Jesper Kyd - Hitman 2: Silent Assassin, Hitman: Contracts and Hitman: Blood Money.

Dan Wentz - Red Faction

As much as it pains me to say it, the Hans Zimmer OSTs are usually worth a listen.

The Mass Effect OSTs are worthy of Mordor too.

Starcraft

One Must Fall 2097

Heroes of Might and Magic 2

Die Hard Trilogy (game)

Hidden and Dangerous (especially the main theme of the original, not the deluxe version, too bad it's soo god damn short)

My favorite is still OFP. Seventh ftw!

Also the Halo Combat Evolved stuff was pretty good (never played any other halo).

There were some other i guess, just can't remember them.
