Man, there are a lot of good soundtracks in this thread that bring back great memories!

My all time favorite soundtrack is from Final Fantasy III(VI) :laugh: I really like the orchestral versions of the songs, but I can still enjoy the midis too :P

Which reminds me, CREATURES (a.k.a. Clyde Radcliffe Exterminates All The Unfriendly Repulsive Earth-ridden Slime) had an excellent soundtrack:

...which was followed by an even better one in CREATURES II: Torture Trouble:

There are a lot of really good soundtracks out there, but I think my all-time favorite is still the one from Journey (which is just an all-around stunning game imo).

Oh, there really are a lot of good soundtracks. For me it is mostly single pieces, that stuck like these:



But one of the best soundtracks in my opinion is from "Shadow of the Colossus". A great game, very minimalistic, but with great design and a beautiful soundtrack, that greatly captures the mood of the game.

From the second you turn this game on, you are treated to some of the finest 8-bit music ever written.

Such a well written piece of music, especially starting at this point.




It proves that music can still sound pretty, even when coming out of very limited hardware.


I noticed that if you take music that was written for ye old OPL hardware (FM synthesis) and then play it through high quality midi samples, it sounds worse. It's almost like the music was not intended to be heard that way, and so it doesn't invoke the feeling that the author intended it to.

I always quite liked the original Deus Ex soundtrack. It has a good mix of ambient music as well as songs with a clearly defined, memorable tune.

I'm a big fan of FTL's soundtrack. Sometimes I'll just listen to it while at work.

I love Darren Korb's work. Usually his music stands very well on its own, and more often than not, seems more interesting than the games it was written for. Bastion is kind of meh, but the OST is great:


But my favorite OST of his would be Transistor OST. Not only it's full of great instrumentals, it's also full of fantastic songs:


As for mixing chiptunes and midi era with contemporary approach, I think Danny Baranowsky did a fantastic job with Crypt of the Necrodancer:
