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 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.

Recoil OST

Posted Image Master of testing for a better Arma and well, for science.
Teach the AI how to drive. Teach AI Tank drivers to turn their front towards the enemy. Give us supression effects for AI . Make AI ragdoll if they get hit. Give us proper animations for throwing Frags. Give us a proper wounding system. Fix the armored vests so that they donĀ“t protect the whole torso. More Civilian assets. Females. Weapon resting. Give us inertia influenced movement depending on the Weapon you have.

I was also impressed with Jesper Kyd work(Hitman series,Freedom Fighters).Syberia 1&2 and Deus Ex 1 had also very atmospheric soundtracks.

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)
