    ofc that's what i mean here, which soundtrack lets you get into the atmosphere of the game, and ofc while u play it, not outside of the game..

    To name just a small amount, imo nothing today can touch the music of games years ago. They were written in a way that you never forgot them.

    I've probably listened to Mass Effect's soundtrack longer than I've played the game, and I think I've played it through thrice...Max Payne, Dune's Spice Opera come to mind, and some of the stuff mentioned here already. Sometimes good soundtracks are simply good for the atmosphere they create, like the gamelan music in Far Cry. You tend to forget about them until you're playing the game again. And the most poppy tune of recent times that comes to mind is Far Cry: Blood Dragon lol...really catching that 80s action sci-fi vibe.

    I have to add Max Payne 2. It is one of my all time favorite games and big part of that is the music, so, so atmospheric and in tone with the game https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8KuFmGxMcZI
    Not on the same level but I would say Destiny has a really good sound track too.

    Aye, he's very solid composer.


    Mirror's Edge 1 soundtrack was really good. Solar Fields did a great job.

    Warcraft 1-3 had great soundtrack, WoW had a few superb ones too.

    Witcher 2 also.

    Kingdom Hearts 2.

    I know its kinda iffy but I really like the new soundtrack on Alpha Sapphire/Omega Ruby. Aswell as the original ruby/sapphire/emerald.
