Music from computer games

Would be interesting to share some of your favorite game soundtracks. There is so much good music from different games whose composers are relatively unknown.

I'd start with Golbins 3, wonderful music for which was composed by Charles Callet.

"Goblin Spirit" - I often use tune for hacking (i.e. when working on various programming tasks). It was placed in a difficult level in the game quite ingeniously.

"Death Dance"

    Another one from a different genre.

    "Ragnar's Theme" (from Rune). Composed by Jim B-Reay, Michael Larson and Rom Di Prisco.

    I’ve been playing American McGee’s Alice lately, and can’t get enough of the main theme. It’s so deliciously eerie and beautifully haunting. The OST was composed by Chris Vrenna:

    "Flying On the Wings of Steam"

    “Skool Daze”

    Sonic Unleashed also holds a special place in my heart, so I would like to include some of my favorites. (It was a difficult decision):

    "Apotos Day"

    "Rooftop Run Night"

    One of my favorite cyberpunk compositions: "Blue Valley" by Karsten Koch (it's used in Uplink):

    Soundtracks from Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic are also great.

    Republic Theme by Jeremy Soule (from KoTOR I):

    Telos Battle by Mark Griskey (from KoTOR II):

    Never played this game, but music for it is great:

    Gourmet Race by Jun Ishikawa and Dan Miyakawa.

    And it produced various memes like this one (also based on Sonic games) :
  • Some goodness from Terry Scott Taylor (from Skullmonkeys)

    She Reminded Me With Science

    Beep Bop Bo Shards

    Skullmonkeys (main theme)

    From The Dwarves OST (always nice to see live performance like that):

    Most of the music was written by Benny Oschmann:

    And one song by Blind Guardian:

  • Full soundtrack for the Neverhood is out on Bandcamp:
  • Troublemaker by Jonathan Geer (from Owlboy soundtrack).

  • Dirk Battle by by Jonathan Geer (from Owlboy soundtrack).
