Man, I absolutely loved Sierra games as a kid. I spent hours on end playing through all of those. But yes, QFQ4 was buggy as hell. I remember getting so pissed at that game and it didn't run anywhere near that smooth on my 386, heh.

I loved the humour in it as well D:

old Saab 9-3 coup?
I find the World of Goo soundtrack really inspiring.

It's made by two blokes in a coffee shop, so there was no huge budget, but it sounds fantastic. The entire soundtrack is free to download, too - my favourite is 21 - Best of Times.

Some crackers so far! Forgot about the UT soundtrack especially!

Here's some more, not the best songs maybe but brings back some memories.

There was something about The Sims' 'build' & 'buy' music that just really suited building & buying. Last time I painted the walls in this room I played the 'build' music in winamp as I worked and it just fit really well with what I was doing, you know?

I just picked up Borderlands the other day and quite like the opening theme:

Skip to 1:30 for the tune.

EDIT: The song is called "Ain't No Rest for the Wicked" by Cage the Elephant

Dracula Symphony of the Night had a great score.

I wish Nintendo would start using actual recorded pieces instead of MIDI still for their games. I'd love to hear an epically recomposed Zelda theme (I know there are ones out there, but I mean in-game). Smash Bros Melee does it great.

That's cool. Why didn't I think of that when renovating my house? Would have done it much quicker!

Always thought Operation Flashpoint had an awesome soundtrack too:

Skies of Arcadia Ending credits music. It just wraps up a great game perfectly.

Get ready for an obscure and terrible Japanese game with a fan-bloody-tastic soundtrack.

Aw this brings back memories of trying to run it on a 486SX33, and having to switch the Turbo button off because it ran so ridiculously fast.

This also takes me back

Yuzo Koshiro (Composer of the Streets Of Rage soundtracks) has Composed and Produced the soundtrack for all Wangan Midnight Maximum Tune arcade games. One of the best arcade games out there that NEEDS to have a console version. And has a great Trance soundtrack with some masterpieces like:

Apocalypse from Hitman: Blood Money

Edit: Also the Battlefield Series theme:
