    Re: Your favourite songs from games?

    By your choices, I assume we are not limited to licensed songs in games, but can reference any music.

    I particularily liked What’s the World Come To?, title song for SiN Emergence

    Deus Ex has a GEP gun worth of great tracks, with my fav being New York streets. It calls forth emotion if you listen to all the instruments that make the piece

    Butcher Bay had some awesome tracks that epitomize ‘frenetic action’. Listen to how Code Red starts from moderately intense, and builds to a crescendo.

    And of course, who can forget Still Alive from Portal

          Well, it's hard for me to pick out a favorite. I have almost 50gb (47,7) worth of Game's MP3s. To say the least, I am very found of games soundtracks. But, I'll try to list a few good ones. Here's a list (not particularily in "best-to-worst order):

          1. - Silent Hill (The original soundtrack. Best. Horror. Soundtrack. Ever.)
          2. - Kingdom Hearts (Both of the games. It's just marvelous music.)
          3. - Suikoden V (After having played this game, I fell in love with the music too.)
          4. - Guild Wars (From all of the expansions and campaigns).
          5. - Final Fantasy (Come on, there's lots of great music from all of the games).

          I'll stop there before I start getting into each and every game.

          If you want solid tracks that are just... great, here's a list of songs I really enjoy:

          1. - Interlace - Rain of Brass Petals - Three Voices Edit (A bonus soundtrack from Silent Hill 3).
          2. - Akira Yamaoka, Mary Elizabeth McGlynn - Waiting For You (Live At "Heaven's Night") (Bonus from Silent Hill 4: The Room).
          3. - Martin O'Donnell/Michael Salvatori - Halo - Reclaimer (It's just a really good track this one).
          4. - Jeremy Soule - Tasca's Theme (From the first Guild Wars, a great track. Just so adventurous!).
          5. - Norikazu Miura - Suikoden V - Counteroffensive (This is one of the songs that stuck out for me).

          I could probably go on forever here too...

            haha nice guys. im also very fun of game and movie soundtracks. in fact, 70% of my music that i listen are soundtracks. Maybe we are too emotional guys and those songs remind us experiences that we can't forget.
            Does anyone remember tha amazing menu song and almost every other song of Tomb Raider 1?
            http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9gZrnEARFeA
            Also do you remember this song? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GxW-qx76S68 (from 3.58-4.48) amazing, if you have tomb raider 2 for psone it's the 60th track of the cd or something
            I could probably go on forever here too...
            please do

              I really like the end song on Mass Effects credits.

              M4,Part 2 by Faunts.

              I also like the music from the old super Nintendo game Act Raiser.

              I just loooooove the Silent Hill series soundtrack.

              And although I don't know the names of any of them, I like some of Halos music.

                    Retro music from Bioshock.

                    For instance: Perry Como - Papa Loves Mambo or Cole Porter - You're The Top

                    Here's the complete list.

                    It's difficult to find these tracks on YouTube but, well, it's worth it

                        Musics from Half-Life series, ecspecially Guard Down and Self Destruction from Episode one and Dark Interval from Episode two.
                        Command & Conquer musics and Red Alert musics, ecspecially Hell March.
                        F.E.A.R musics(perfect scary ambient for roleplaying)
                        Halo 2's 1, 2, 3, and 4th movement of Odyssey
                        Silent Hill
                        Some Myst and Deus Ex musics..

                        Would have gotten much more if this was a "from movies" topic

                          Got to go with the main song from Mirror's Edge. So catchy you guys. I'm humming it as we speak. Jealous?

                              Probably the single best intro to a game ever... The heartbeat sets the mood, but once the main theme kicks in with the electric guitar, you know the game is going to be badass, and of course it doesn't disappoint. The rest of the soundtrack is great too -- my favourite tracks are from the opening levels - The Dam, The Facility, and The Runway. It's worth comparing them to the orginal composition -- you can see how closely they mimick Eric Serra's original soundtrack in places.

                              I have to agree with Kahr, the Silent Hill series has some of the best, orginal game soundtracks. Silent Hill 2 is probably my favourite - Laura's theme has pretty much become a standard for the series (the refrain comes back in a lot of the later games). The songs with McGlynn and Joe Romersa are fantastic too.

                              My final recommendation is Super Smash Bros. Brawl - Nintendo really went to town with this. Nostalgia is a big part of the experience, and to that effect they asked over 36 composers from other game companies to listen to Nintendo's huge archive of music and rearrange their favourite songs for the game.

                              Here's a small selection:

                              Random tracks from random games:



                              Retro music from Bioshock.

                              ...

                              It's difficult to find these tracks on YouTube but, well, it's worth it
                              That's an amazing lineup. Django Reinhardt.
                              Although, Lastfm is probably a better bet for quickly tracking down all of those artists, rather than youtube.

                              I suppose I should also mention the GTA series as well -- plenty to choose from there.
