    I sometimes listen to Grand Theft Auto, Quake and a few racer ones and was wondering if any of you lot do the same?
    Just a thought.:)

    WarCraft 2! Some of the best game music ever! Doom/Doom 2 also had great music but AFAIK you can only get it in MIDI, which is a bit of a bummer... The Seventh Guest (remember that??) also had fantastic atmospheric music. Also, Descent, and Castlevania 4 (on the SNES!) had great music, though again hard to come by in anything other than MIDI... For CD audio, Age of Empires and Carmageddon are good examples.

    BTW, now that you've got me thinking about it, can anyone get me a copy of the WarCraft 2 soundtrack in WAV or (preferably) MP3? I have the MIDIs but they're just not very satisfying... :(

    Cheers,

    Dunc

    The X-Wing Vs Tie Fighter CD-ROM is always in my car... why drive to work when you can fly?! I actually bought the soundtrack to wipeout 2097 without having the game, great CD.

    haven't listened to them in ages but the music to "The Last Ninja" for the Commodore 64, and "Flashback" for the Amiga were both amazing in their day:D

    Ah pure classic!

    Lots of those old Thalamax games had top music too. Used to love the loading tune for Sanxxion. :D

    Rob Hubbard was a music god in the C64 days :)

    I've always liked the music from the Turrican games on the Amiga.

    My favourite among the oldies has to be the Streets of rage 1 and 2 soundtracks on the megadrive - what Yuzo Koshiro (sp?) did with those little fm midi chips was very impressive.

    Modern games do seem to be getting many orchestral tracks. Haven't got any particular one in my cd player though.

    I liked the muzac for Vectorball. There was a great piece of music they used for the arcade machine Supertrain, I also have heard this music on the TV but I never did find what it was called. :(

    I was over my bruv's the other month when he stuck on this mad game for his Dreamcast.

    Rez

    Looked like a good game, with vector graphics (although better than the Asteroids of this world), and had some pretty natty techno music which was partly constructed by the players actions (shooting)...

    I'm not a games man myself, but i thought this game (and music) was pretty good.....

    My bruv is a games man (big time)...& owns too many consoles.
    I think his Dreamcast is the best console of the lot.

    Adzman.

    Rez rocks - the best thing is to play it on the big screen with the lights down and the volume up. Talk about trippy! :D
