What are some of your favorite game soundtracks/songs? Annnnd Go!
There were a few soundtrack threads before but there's no such thing as "best" in music, music is all about taste and is different with everybody...
For me, among mmo's it's Knut's two AoC soundtracks (here's a live performance of The Dreaming: http://youtu.be/-g5KYv2oqXk) and Chance Thomas's LotRO ones, with SoA at the first place.
Outside mmo's, I listen VC's radios a lot, mostly V-Rock, same with GTA IV's Vladivostok FM
Doom and DoomII had also cool soundtracks back in the day, and I have a truckload of C64 collections (and a few Press Play on Tape versions) as well.
edit: I mean, seriously, how cool is that? http://youtu.be/hLWw1OpDrpI PPoT rocks
Any Funcom game has a great soundtrack.

The only game soundtracks I've ever listened to outside of the game itself are:
C&C: Tiberian Sun
Sim City 3000
I've also started listening to the new Minecraft soundtrack and have been enjoying it quite a bit: http://c418.bandcamp.com/album/minecraft-volume-beta
CasinoRPG - Free Casino MMORPGGoldFire Studios
Just personal favourites I remember, in no particular order:
- Elder Scrolls (Morrowind Theme, ES Theme)
- Grandia II
- Suikoden IV
- Ultima VII The Black Gate
- Ultima VIII Pagan
Those are game melodies I vividly remember, still.
People don't ask questions to get answers - they ask questions to show how smart they are. - Dogbert
Overall best soundtrack ever, I'd vote Civilization 5.
And no ones has mentioned Age Of Conan, really?
I also agree with Vanguard being right up there, as for a non mmo then i'm going to go with Gothic 3.
Especially Geldern http://www.yourepeat.com/watch/?v=Aya_iEuNo9o
Oh and did i mention Age Of Wulin/wushu, right up there with the games i've mentioned.
