What do you people think is the single best song/theme for a game? I personaly think Moh:aa has it.

If we're not talking original music, I think GTA: Vice City has one of the best. Nothing like going on a vehicular rampage to the likes of Yes. :D

Halo has an awesome soundtrack as well, but my favorite of any game is probably Shenmue II.

How bout we change it to songs/music which the developers made, not songs which were released like most of those from need for speed. :)

System Shock 2 (Link: http://www.ttlg.com/other/jukebox/ss2.htm

Deus Ex (oh yes I love the theme among with Chateau and Synapse.. those were really the days! Link: http://www.planetdeusex.com/dx1/files/music/)

Halo (You can't hear the soundtrack legally online, but you can buy it :))

Rainbow Six series (Link: http://bbmusic.crosswinds.net/musicG1.htm)

C&C Generals and the expansion Zero Hour (Link: http://www.billbrownmusic.com/musicG4.htm)

Hitman series (Link: http://www.jesperkyd.com/ Can't give you a direct link, this is as far as I can get you. But his compositons from the Hitman series and Freedom Fighters are really worth checking out)


Thats about those I can think of right now, I will properbly add more to this post when I think of them. Among my favorites are Jesper Kyd and Bill Brown. Truly brilliant game music artists :)

Tribes II had some great tracks, but overall I think C&C series had the most original tracks.

Almost forgot, UnreaL1 had some of my favorite ambient music ever. It flowed with the atmosphere almost perfectly. Skytown (http://www.altpop.com/stc/mp3/unreal-9.mp3) is my fav track. There's a review here (http://www.altpop.com/stc/reviews/unreal.htm). Wing Commander & The Dig are also mentioned.

Halo has good sound. I like UT2004 as well for sound track, especially arcticstronghold.

the theme music in Enclave is great :) but I would expect not less from the creators of ft2 and when the music is made buy some of the old time sceners

Mgs2 Substance/sons of liberty also have a great sound track for obvious reasons ;)

Without a doubt it has to be Jesper Kyd for the Hitman series.
