    Just a few little things, but that could as well be a coincidence. In the end its all great game music, so who cares. Sorry for nitpicking :D

    Some good stuff here.

    I always have a soft spot for the original Sonic games' music:

    A sample from Mechwarrior 2

    And MW2: Mercenaries

    It appears as if the entire soundtracks from MW2 and MW2: Mercenaries are available on YouTube. I'm just going to post the first parts, it's easy to click on the links if you want to hear the rest.

    MW2, part 1:

    And last, but not least, the main theme from Mechcommander 2:

    Yeah, that Monkey Island track has a nice sound to it. Tropico 3 has a good soundtrack as well.

    If we're including console games, then I have to say the Kakariko Village music from Ocarina of Time.


    Link to video.

    The child link version of Kakariko Village is best. The adult link version is overly high pitched and annoying.

    As for games on the computer, I like the Civ 2 MGE and ToT music.

    You might have to turn up the volume. :p

    It's been mentioned, but not posted yet. Hell's March from Red Alert ROCKS! Hell, the whole intro does.

    Link to video.

    A bit outside the scope, but best integration of an existing song turning into rocksolid game music metal in an intro:

    Oh yeah!

    These were good.
    I had something similar, but with Tetris.
    Also nice to hear.

    I'm still a bit tired of the Baldur's gate music because I've heard it so much. I was(and still is because I haven't finished the game yet), one of those that wanted a perfect roll on the start of Baldur's gate 2. You know, 18.00 and lots of points. It varied, but I usually went for a Kensai, with the stats 18.00(strength), 18(dexterity), 18(constitution), ~9(wisdom, however high I could get it), 18(intelligence), 3(charisma, one of the first items you could get in the game was a ring that gave you 18 in charisma, so I took that one). Then being a human, and dual classing to mage at level 9 or 10 you could bacally make your character into a demigod. It was so cool!!

    And I love Deionarras's theme.
