What's your favorite video game soundtrack?

The Starbound soundtrack has a lot of beautiful pieces in it.

 

It really does, one of my favorite elements of the game as it stands. Normally when I speed something up in a video I use the FTL soundtrack but Starbound's stood up on its own. http://youtu.be/hDcHhMamuoM?t=17m28s

final fantasy piano collections have always been my favorites, particularly the ff8 collection as a whole.

some of my alltime favorites are from other piano collection albums up until ff9. everything after 10 can suck my nuts. nobuo uematsu or no sale on ff games.

@brethren kudos on z nemesis, i replayed that game last year. that soundtrack and the whole game was a far cry from previous games like RTZ, but totally awesome in its own right. the music in nemesis made the world feel super expansive in the same way that the lore of something like lord of the rings makes middle earth feel huge and unknowable in its entirety.

Here's a somewhat obscure one. The song I like the most starts at 3:45 ("Boiny Main"):

Neo Tokyo OST

 

My god, this OST has this crazy atmosphere and air that I rarely come across in any music at all. Amazing.

 

It sure has. I was following this mod for a long time and I read somewhere that the music was one of the things keeping it all together and pushing the team to finish. Too bad they just left the game adrift since first or second patch. No idea if the Steam Greenlight helped them get it going again. I absolutely loved everything in this, but as internet soon pointed out, there were many flaws in the multiplayer game mechanics. I never saw any news about trying to fix them, so I just keep it on disk and hope for something to come. The whole thing is worth checking out, especially for those who loved Ghost in the Shell.

If you want futuristic atmosphere you should check out E.Y.E. Divine Cybermancy. That is one of the strangest games I've ever played. It runs on the source engine yet has an atmosphere I've never felt before when playing anything, at all. It plays very differently, too. As a game it's not great, but I ended up playing it all the way through just for how different it felt.

Dammit, C&C and Hitman have already been posted, and even Anachronox and Pathologic... Let's see what else is there...

Started playing this forgotten gem recently, and quite like the theme

Also this game's whole soundtrack, but especially this song

That being said, I usually don't like (pseudo-)orchestrated music in games too much.

Eh, thanks. I made some levels for it. Thick atmosphere was a major pillar of design, and the music is indeed beautiful. As far as I know we left some unused material in the music folder dating from before Olivier went on board.

EDIT: just checked and we didn't, in fact. The tracks then had a very different vibe and to be honest the ones used in the final product are much better.

Well you should be proud! In terms of level design it's brilliant. The game mechanics are iffy and clunky for the most part, but the level design and atmosphere are really something special. Still would've liked to hear the older music though.

NeoTokyo wasn't great because of the GitS references. It was great because it honed the Counterstrike system to a pretty refined state of gameplay. The three player types are pretty well balanced against each other. The setting just adds that much more to it.

 

The issue is if the servers dry up then there's nothing else to carry it.

If it had a single player campaign you could at least keep playing it.

What do you see when you turn out the light? I can't tell you but I know that it's mine.

I was gonna learn some more python tonight, but screw it, i'm in the mood for some Dune Legacy. Modern OS/resolution support, skirmish mode, map editor and... MULTIPLAYER?!? *cough anyone? cough*

Where can one find that treasure? :o

 

I'm nowhere near sober enough to command an army.

Hah! And again: Remembering that situation! xD

It is hard for me to separate actual music quality apart from game experience and sentiment. I guess I wouldn't care about some of those, if it wouldn't be attached to a good mood of particular game.

Quake

Quake II

Thief

Thief II

System Shock 2

 

Err...I usually turn the music off during a game if it's not ambient. It hurts the immersion for me, because noone but Peter Griffin is cool enough to have his own theme music.

 

Even on the games I listed, I really didn't play with the music (Quake part one and Thief being exceptions because the music was so subtle).

 

Only games that I blasted through with music was Doom, Heretic, Hexen, because on the old computer my family used in the 90's we didn't even have a sound blast card yet, so the midi music was the only sound we had. I guess you can say those three games I also enjoy the music to, but probably because of hearing it so much, not because of instantly liking it.

      It's funny how perception changes over the years. I've been replaying Bioshock in its Remastered version, and I'm surprised how bad the level design actually is. It's just a series of abstract corridor mazes that you can't really map out in your head. There's nothing that would ground them in any kind of reality, fictional or otherwise, no sense of place people could live in. It's almost like Wolfenstein 3d with cool art deco assets.

      Anyone here played Inscryption? At first, I was like "no, I am not going to play a stupid card game", but this game is so much more than that. It is so meta, full of 4th wall breaks, and feels so damn spooky and weird because of it. Absolutely recommended, if you can stand the visuals. I recommend not reading up too much on it, as that could easily spoil half the incredible surprises. Just know that what you see in the beginning is by far not everything.

      Tried to make a tdm advertisement commentpost at one of civvie11 youtube videos about T2. Post got marked as spam. His problem (to not discover TDM for himself),..not my problem.
      But some help of some fellow TDM yt-videocomment posters would be nice. To ask him and others, to play TDM. To get more players/creators.

      Currently Profile Information has 3 fields, these are shown in forum posts under your avatar:
      1. Gender
      2. Location
      3. Interests
      I think that it could be useful to have an extra field called "Operating system" (under location). It can be useful for tech support and to see what people use.
      Alternatively it could be a more general term, like PC system, so that you can for example state that you use an AMD gpu.
