Games with memorable music

GOGmix by Rambutaan's avatarRambutaan 1vote

Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obs...

Rambutaan's rating:
250

Rambutaan says: Arcanum is a pretty special game when it comes to music. Troika wanted to try something different and employed a string quartet to perform most of the music in the game which gives the soundtrack a unique sound.

Betrayal at Krondor Pack

Rambutaan's rating:
250

Rambutaan says: Great medieval tunes, and even though they're MIDI quality, they still sound good today.

Call to Power 2

Rambutaan's rating:
250

Rambutaan says: This game had an awesome intro and an excellent theme song to back it up (which was incorporated with the in-game music). Oh the game wasn't too bad either.

Driver®: Parallel Lines

Rambutaan's rating:
250

Rambutaan says: A funky soundtrack incorporating a lot of licensed music with Grandmaster Flash at the helm.

Earth 2150 Trilogy

Rambutaan's rating:
250

Rambutaan says: Great music with different styles to fit each of the three sides. This game even had its own dance track as a theme song: "We escape from the blue... from the bluuuuueee..."

Earthworm Jim 1+2: The Whole Can 'O W...

Rambutaan's rating:
250

Rambutaan says: Awesome level music by a VGM veteran, Tommy Tallarico, who is also co-creator of the Video Games Live series.Groovy!

Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers

Rambutaan's rating:
250

Rambutaan says: Robert Holmes (husband of Jane Jensen) makes excellent soundtracks and the Gabriel Knight theme is one of them.

Giants: Citizen Kabuto

Rambutaan's rating:
250

Rambutaan says: A hilarious game where Jeremy Soule's heroic music juxtaposed with the bungling band of Meccaryns enhances the comedy.

Jagged Alliance

Rambutaan's rating:
250

Rambutaan says: While not using high quality samples, the dramatic soundtrack to Jagged Alliance was memorable and fit the game well.

removeupdown

Jagged Alliance 2

Rambutaan's rating:
250

Rambutaan says: The rock, blues and orchestal influences on this soundtrack made you feel as if you and your band of mercenaries were starring in an 80s action flick.

King's Quest 4+5+6

Rambutaan's rating:
250

Rambutaan says: King's Quest V had a memorable soundtrack but King's Quest VI went so far as to create a soundtrack that wasn't too different from one you'd find for a Disney animated feature, complete with a rock ballad duet.

Lionheart: Legacy of the Crusader

Rambutaan's rating:
250

Rambutaan says: I didn't really get to play this game that much - it was pretty buggy. The music by Inon Zur was great though, the acoustic guitar pieces in particular.

Little Big Adventure (Relentless: Twi...

Rambutaan's rating:
250

Rambutaan says: I remember LBA's soundtrack with several uplifting and beautiful themes, sometimes almost making you want to cry. It was that good.

Little Big Adventure 2 (Twinsen's Ody...

Rambutaan's rating:
250

Rambutaan says: Just like its predecessor, LBA2 continues the tradition of having an awesome soundtrack.

Locomotion, Chris Sawyer's

Rambutaan's rating:
250

Rambutaan says: One interesting aspect of the Locomotion soundtrack is that music changed depending on which time period you were in. In the 40s, you could expect to hear jazz while in the 80s, you'd hear synthpop.

removeupdown

Master of Orion 1+2

Rambutaan's rating:
250

Rambutaan says: The original had some nice music, but most of the game was played in silence. With MOO2 however you had a sci-fi opera feel to the soundtrack with different themes played for each of the races you meet in the game.

removeupdown

MegaRace 1+2

Rambutaan's rating:
250

Rambutaan says: I don't know about Megarace 1 but Megarace 2 had a rockin' soundtrack for its time which really got you into the mood to burn some rubber and fire some missiles!

removeupdown

Neverwinter Nights Diamond

Rambutaan's rating:
250

Rambutaan says: Another game with a most memorable and heroic theme, thanks to Jeremy Soule.

removeupdown

Police Quest Collection

Rambutaan's rating:
250

Rambutaan says: The great aspect of the Police Quest soundtracks are that they made you feel like you were in an 80s cop show - in fact Sierra even managed to get Jan Hammer (of Miami Vice theme fame) to score Police Quest 3!

removeupdown

SimCity™ 2000 Special Edition

Rambutaan's rating:
250

Rambutaan says: They may be only MIDI tracks (or at least they sound like MIDI) but you can't help but tap your toes at some of these tunes as you review your metropolis!

removeupdown

Space Quest 1+2+3

Rambutaan's rating:
250

Rambutaan says: The early Space Quests only really had music during the intro but this theme would be heard again and again in every Space Quest afterwards. Space Quest 3 had some extra memorable themes, like the Monolith Burger theme!

removeupdown

Space Quest 4+5+6

Rambutaan's rating:
250

Rambutaan says: Lots of excellent variations of the Space Quest theme in these sequels, but my favourite would have to be Space Quest V where they parody Star Trek to death!

removeupdown

Star Control 1+2

Rambutaan's rating:
250

Rambutaan says: The soundtrack to Star Control 2 was so good that the original composers remixed their classics for the "remake" Ur-Quan Masters.

removeupdown

Syberia

Rambutaan's rating:
250

Rambutaan says: Adventure games tend to have beautiful soundtracks and Syberia is one of them, with a moving main theme to boot.

removeupdown

Tropico Reloaded

Rambutaan's rating:
250

Rambutaan says: Thanks to the Daniel Indart Project, Tropic received a high-quality soundtrack that would give the Buena Vista Social Club a run for its money!

removeupdown

Ultima™ 4+5+6

Rambutaan's rating:
250

Rambutaan says: Ultima 6 was the first game that introduced me to Ultima and tunes that would become stalwarts of the series, including Stones, Rule Britannia and the Ultima theme.

removeupdown

Wing Commander ®: Privateer ™

Rambutaan's rating:
250

Rambutaan says: Privateer had a theme song that they managed to incorporate in most of the soundtrack, including the combat and space station music. This means it wasn't a theme you'd soon forget!

removeupdown

Wing Commander™ 1+2

Rambutaan's rating:
250

Rambutaan says: The Wing Commander games had some awesome military themed music that helped immerse you into its military sci-fi universe.

Treat your GOGmix as your child - name it! ;)

Coming up with a cool and descriptive title should be your first priority. Being original is in your best interest - bet you wanna get lots of nice votes, right? Go all crazy if you want, but be sure to keep it civil!

So, what are the ingredients?

Pick a game that belongs in your GOGmix from the list, or find it by typing something in the text field. Relevance is key here - Earthworm Jim doesn't quite fit the "Sexiest heroines of all time" bill now, does it?

Justify your choice... Or not!

OK, so it's not required, but now that you went through the trouble of adding a game, telling everyone why you did it would be a nice finishing touch. After you're done here, add another game, rinse, repeat.
