Gotta say, Christopher Frankes' unreleased soundtrack from Babylon 5 - Into the Fire - Space Combat Simulator has the best music composed for any game. Though I give it a substantial amount of B5 extra points.

If we don't count that. Final Fantasy VI, Super Castlevania IV or Chrono Trigger has the most influential music for my tastes.

:yes: You wouldn't happen to have the rarer, longer versions of the combat tracks?  I need them!

Woot, Crusader series!  Old but awesome.  Heh, I've been following one of the music composers ever since.  He also did the bar music from Freelancer, made a couple albums in an electronic project called the alpha conspiracy, and is in a band called Iris now.  heh, you'd think I was stalking him?  Nah, I just love his style. :D

I rather like anything by Jesper Kyd (the Hitman series, and others).  His Russian martial music for Freedom Fighters was awesome.  I get some strange looks blasting that loud :lol:

Man I could go on all day.  Marty O'Donnel, Bill Brown, Jack Wall, Jeremy Soule and more... It's just awesome that composers now spend such effort on music we can enjoy in all these games... it's not just little bleeps any more!  (Though mind, even the NES had some great stuff, like Contra :yes:)

Tim Follin's soundtrack to Ghouls N' Ghosts is exceptionally well crafted. I'm tempted to say a masterpiece but I'll stop short of that. Chris Hülsbeck's Apidya soundtrack is extremely funky, as is the Last Ninja 2 soundtrack. Can't remember the composer of the last one.

Yes, I do. I've tried to contact Chris Franke with the help of FirstOnes.com community to get an official word out whether it is ok to release them to public. Unfortunately I haven't received any response from Franke or JMS. Guess I should resurrect the torrent which was submitted for FirstOnes.com community.

I wept. Mysterious forces beyond my ken had reached into my beautiful mission and energized its pilots with inhuman bomb-firing abilities. I could only imagine the GTVA warriors giving a mighty KIAAIIIIIII shout as they worked their triggers, their biceps bulging with sinew after years of Ivan Drago-esque steroid therapy and weight training. - General Battuta

Derek Smart is his own oxymoron.

 
the Splinter Cell [EDIT]soundtrack [/EDIT] was okay, but way too techno for me. The best song I've heard is on Chaos Theory when you complete a mission.

Xenosaga Episode III.  Some of the fight themes made the room feel colder to me.  Plus, as I've heard, good game.

Okay, I have to ask...how the hell can you, can anyone, say FFVII? I have both soundtrack and game, a friend gave them to me when cleaning out their stuff, and the soundtrack is extremely unimpressive in terms of both composition and quality. Further it simply fails as a soundtrack, hearing it ingame is jarring as all hell. It's a bunch of crappy MIDI tunes, which even though I'm not particularly fond of that or any Final Fantasy, do not do the game justice at all. Every time I hear it I think the person who decided to do things this way should have been stood against the nearest wall and shot.

There is one absolutely beautiful track on that soundtrack. It's one of the ones that plays when you're wondering around the planet map. The thing is though that one wasn't even composed for FF7. It was mercilessly stolen from the soundtrack of Nausicaa' of the Valley of the Wind. They thought they could sneak that past me. THey thought wrong :P.

For some reason I cannot recall any single impressive game soundtrack that would have really stood out. Meh... :sigh:
