    Well, I'm trying to find as much music from games as possible for my spotify playlists. It seems to help me relax, and get into a good working flow. So if any of you know where to find any music from games (Preferably more instrumental style) post some spotify links or whatever.

    Spotify - EA Games Soundtracks

    Anyone got any more?

    Inon Zur, great composer.

    Did music in crysis, company of heroes, and a bunch of other games.

    In fact, the whole Crysis [nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PEQj0MPy3Yw"]YouTube- Crysis Warhead - Airfield Hero Theme[/nomedia] soundtrack is great, see about getting that.

    Other incredible soundtracks include myst [nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VVdfgFr2-EU"]YouTube- Myst - Myst Theme[/nomedia], ut2k4 [nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aup9SAnt6lQ"]YouTube- UT 2004 Soundtrack - Deck17/Hyperblast Theme[/nomedia], halo [nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4qNP6rAeOeo"]YouTube- Halo 3 Theme Song (Full)[/nomedia] (fuck the haters), half life 2, Railroad tycoon 2 [nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nTNHO_pgo1M"]YouTube- Railroad Tycoon 2 Bluegrass Guitar (Great tune)[/nomedia] if you dig blues, and finally Okami [nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VZxK58tPU4I"]YouTube- Okami Music - Rising Sun[/nomedia] and Shadow Of The Colossus [nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R3PRXFLJYcw"]YouTube- Shadow Of The Colossus Soundtrack - The Opened Way (1)[/nomedia].

    IMO, the Sonic Adventure games had really awesome soundtracks. Jun Senoue is awesome.

    [nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uEzXFuYN89k"]YouTube- Open Your Heart by Crush 40 (Main Theme of Sonic Adventure)[/nomedia]

    [nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7qcdVgo0x00&feature=related"]YouTube- Crush 40 -Live And Learn[/nomedia] <- Be careful with this one, for some odd reason, it gets louder at 1:55, and I'm not sure why.

    Most of the other Sonic game also have their moments, even the crappy Sonic '06 game. Sonic CD in particular had a good opening theme, if in a kinda cheesy way.
    [nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JPC8W672mXc"]YouTube- Sonic Boom - Opening Sonic CD[/nomedia]

    Mass Effect and ME2 are good if are into electronica/techno thing, I guess. While not composed for the game, [nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gISlB1IdUjI"]YouTube- Faunts - "M4 (Part II)" music video[/nomedia] is a good song, which played at the end of Mass Effect 1.

    Most of the stuff you find on OcRemix.org gets remixed because people thought it was good to start with, so that's a useful filter.

    Some of my favorites:
    • Too much OcRemix stuff to list, from many games.
    • Nobuo Frickin' Uematsu!
    • Deus Ex soundtrack by Alexander Brandon. He has some other good stuff, including some tracks in Tyrian and I think some of the Unreal games.
    • Star Control 2
    • Command and Conquer, mainly Klepacki stuff, although it's hard to tell how much of what I like is nostalgia.
    • Tin Soldiers by Ed Harrison. Some of his other stuff's pretty good too. Dunno why, but it's great driving music.
    • Halo theme! Loved it before the game ever came out, one of the few things I can play on the piano. I don't like the newer "Rock-guitar" version nearly as much. Orchestral's better.

    The Ace Attorney series has fantastic music that always nails the mood really well.

    [nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wq1jknZp0ic"]YouTube- PW:AA OST: 08 - Investigation ~ Cornered[/nomedia]

    The music isn't always that great outside the game, but in-game it's soooo good.

    (Except for the 2nd game, which they really fucked up)

    Some from the last game:
    [nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pZrQialji38"]YouTube- Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth - Pursuit ~ Lying Coldly[/nomedia]
    [nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F6Cq2fJo-WQ"]YouTube- AAI Miles Edgeworth - Music: Tyrell Badd ~ The Truth isn't Sweet[/nomedia]

    EDIT: Stupid YouTube links :/

    I really hate most of the Sonic songs, except some songs from SA2, like Live and Learn and Escape from the City ([nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9chlljbdmYg&feature=related"]YouTube- Sonic Adventure 2 Soundtrack-City Escape[/nomedia]). They're pretty catchy.

    When it comes to Sonic music though, Sonic Rush has some really awesome music.
    [nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eyPT7b6ngmg"]YouTube- Sonic Rush Music: Right There, Ride On (sonic)[/nomedia]
    [nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JRcxLRszubY"]YouTube- Sonic Rush Music: Back 2 Back (blaze)[/nomedia]

    EDIT: Ah, sorry for the double post. I forgot I'd posted once already. :p

    Battlefield 2142 has one of the best soundtracks, IMO. Shame people lost interest in the game so quickly, I pretty much memorised the Suez and Camp Gib loading tracks :p
