Hi, just wanted to know what everyones favorite sports title soundtrack is. I picked sports titles because they are the only games that stream popular music during gameplay (racing games included).  
 
The ones that come to mind for me are Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 and 2.

Yup, you hit the nail on the head.  Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2.

God, many of them. 
 The Tony Hawks used to have awesome music, SSX is also great, I can't really choose!

@xXMuzikPH4NtomxX:  I forget which year of FIFA it was but it had a Kings of Leon track in the intro video.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 hands down.  Also a fan of the music from NBA Street Vol. 2.

Which one has that Del the Funky Homosapien song?  I think it's Tony Hawk 3 but it might be 4.  As for my favorites I pick one of those two games.

Lame answer: ESPN NFL 2K5.  You could add clips from your music library for like 50 different gameplay scenarios (ie score a rushing touchdown, 4th down conversion, failed 3rd down version, punt return, etc) and the game would let you choose exactly where in the song you wanted to start the clip so you could start it off on the perfect lyric for the situation. 
 
I don't know why every sports game didn't steal that mechanic

you aren't supposed to end the thread with the opening post. Tony Hawk had awesome soundtracks, and most other sports games just throw recent shit in to make money.

Bases Loaded for NES.
 
Ohhhhh yeah...

Tony Hawk's 2 and 3.

NBA Street Vol. 2 fo' sho!

My favorite sports game was like Blitz 2000 or something like that.

The early Tony Hawk's hands down!

I'm leaning towards Tony Hawk's Underground 2. I think it had the best soundtrack in the series. I'd rank THUG1's at 2nd place, maybe THPS3 at 3rd.

Dude, that sounds brilliant. Why can't every game do that?
