One of the main reasons Guildwars was so good is its music, composed by the legendary composer Jeremy Soule.
He alone is responsible for more gaming memory's than you realise.
Although scoffed at by the so called Hardcore MMO players, Guildwars has more music (and from a better quality) then all major MMO's combined and then multiplied by 2, this also counts for the content of some MMO's.


In anticipation of the Guildwars 2 beta Here is the entire Guildwars soundtrack.

I've been thinking about this for quite a while. There are so many good themes to games I've played over the years...but to pick a best one? That was difficult for me.

There have been quite a few posted here that I agree with, but I think I finally narrowed it down to one that I think I could lay claim to being the *best* theme.

I picked this one simply because it has been remixed so many times over the years as the series has found itself on multiple platforms. Possibly not as well known as something like say, the Final Fantasy theme, or Zelda.

I present to you, Bloody Tears from the Castlevania series:



In case you are wondering, my favorite rendition starts at 1:00 in (the SNES version)

Here is fantastic music from good old time Sierra adventures, they don't make them like this anymore.
The production value was stellar for adventures back then.

Ultima 4 was probably the first RPG I ever played back in the 80's.. I have played hundreds since, yet i can not remember any music from any other game.. it all just worked together so perfectly.. I still hum the wanderer music on a semi regular occurance

Hmm for some strange reason I have to agree.

I swear I had already posted in this thread, but can't find evidence, so will have to re-contribute the game that has the stickiest music for me...

Rings of Medusa

Video Game Music and Songs - GameThemeSongs.com Most are mono, not stereo audio.

Afro Celt Sound System did a couple of game music suites. Since hearing them in Magic & Mayhem, I've bought all of their music and seen them twice in concert!
"Medieval 2" Magic & Mayhem Music (HQ Audio)
"Medieval 2" Magic & Mayhem Music (HQ Audio) - YouTube
Afro celt sound system-Magic and Mayhem - YouTube

All of the LOTRO music performed by Chance Thomas. You can google for those, too many to list.

Earth & Beyond music:

And lastly... LucasArts Soundtracks:
