Except from the Final fantasy IV soundtrack I have not listened to any gaming music so I was wondering if anyone in this forum listened to it. Also does anyone know if command and conquer have released a soundtrack.

#2 Posted by pyromagnestir (4287 posts) -

Bastion's is the only one I've ever really listened to outside of the game. It's pretty good.

#3 Posted by tsiro (214 posts) -

I love the soundtracks to Journey, Sword and Sworcery, and Fez. There are definitely others, but those are the ones that immediately come to mind.

Now that I think about it, I'm pretty sure that I've listened to each one of those already today.

#4 Posted by Shotgunblast97 (125 posts) -

@pyromagnestir Just to ask did you play the game before listening to the soundtrack, Because I'm wondering if most people who listening to soundtracks like it because of the actual music or the memory's that the game give you. Saying that it might be both.

#5 Posted by themangalist (1731 posts) -

Persona 4 is definitely up there.

#6 Posted by MariachiMacabre (7074 posts) -

Journey has some of the best music I've heard in years. It's soundtrack is astounding.

@Shotgunblast97: I played the game first.

Game soundtracks have never really been memorable to me, but Borderlands 2 has been pretty awesome. A few of the tracks sound Nine Inch Nail-ish.

Nier; nothing comes Nier it

...

I apologize

Also Digital Devil Saga 2 and Resonance of Fate though they aren't even close to Nier

All of Jesper Kyd's stuff for the Hitman games, Amon Tobin did a really awesome soundtrack for Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory:

Oh man, I can't pick one favorite. In no particular order:

@Shotgunblast97: Several C&C games have definitely had released soundtracks. The Red Alert games have their OSTs on iTunes. I had the Tiberian Sun soundtrack on CD. It came with the box set of Tiberian Sun and the expansion.

@JackOhara: Yes! Jesper Kyd is great too! A friend of mine was his assistant for a summer.

I have a couple of Final Fantasy OSTs that I listen to pretty often. VII, VIII, and X are my favorites, and I especially dig the "Piano Collections" of each.

I am also a fan of Jack Wall's work for Jade Empire and Jeremy Soule's for Morrowind.

#17 Edited by Jeust (10541 posts) -

Nier and the Silent Hill soundtracks. Also Catherine.

I play the Bastion soundtrack when I play multiplayer games like BF3 to the point where I think that it is the BF3 soundtrack. Gets me into what some might call "the zone". And I agree that Jim Guthrie is great to listen to at any time.

#23 Posted by ESREVER (2682 posts) -

Nier has the BEST soundtrack

Persona 3,4 also has a great soundtrack.

I feel like I've answered this question numerous times on these boards.

Bastion, Fez, Persona 4

Playing through Persona 3 right now and I'm digging it but P4's is just amazing

#28 Posted by RAMBO604 (137 posts) -

The Mass Effect 1 soundtrack, perfectly captures the essence of 1980's sci-fi. In particular John Carpenter and Vangelis. But that whole soundtrack is a love letter to the entire genre during the eighties.

#29 Posted by Tim_the_Corsair (3065 posts) -

I predominantly use game soundtracks while I'm writing rather than as general listening, so keep that in mind:

• Darren Korb's Bastion soundtrack is phenomenal
• Jim Guthrie's Sword and Sworcery soundtrack is awesome, as is all his other work (he did Indie Game: The Movie as well)
• Frank Klepacki did all the old C&C; games and his work on those was great. His site allows you to listen to basically all his work in a flash window, it's pretty awesome.
• The Halo series
• Borderlands 2 and some of Borderlands 1
• Deus Ex
• FTL
• Binding of Isaac
• Super Meat Boy

#30 Posted by Epidehl (286 posts) -

Bomberman Hero will always have one of my favorite game soundtracks of all time.

American McGee's Alice. I have used that album to fall asleep dozens and dozens of times. The first 8 or so tracks are so relaxing and awesome.

After that would be any order of Super Metroid, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Bastion and Super Mario World.
