I think that many games have very cool music in background, what do you think?

I really like the diablo 2 music for example, specially the Tristram song...I also like the C&C red alert's Hell march. And the music from the game MDK is quite nice too.

Neverwinter Nights has a really good musical score, as do all the Final Fantasy games featuring music by Nobuo Uematsu. I love the music from the Legend of Zelda games as well, and the opening theme to WildArms 2 is simply amazing.

Alice had the best music of any computer game ever. Probably because it was by the drummer of Nine Inch Nails.

Neverwinter Nights had some good music, but the same guy did the music for Knights of the Old Republic and that was even better. I think John Williams would be proud.

The same guy also did the music for Total Annihilation. I've never played the game, but I'm highly impressed by the score.

It really is amazing. I listen to it all the time.
I'm partial to Age of Wonders and Lords of Magic. There's more, but I can't remember what.

I like a lot of game music, so let's see...

Avernum 1 and 2 (intros) en Exile 1 and 2 definetiely belong on the list;
the music of Star wars battlefront (because it's the Star Wars filmscore and I'm in love with it);
Games of Pangea Software usually ahve very good music, like Otto Matic, Nanosaur 2, and also Weekend Warrior had one or two amazing tracks;
Microsoft Flight Simulator X has two very nice tracks amongst others;
Simcity 3000 and 4 had some nice music too, if I remember correctly.

These are all I can think of now.

Both Monkey Shines and Gex had good background music, in my opinion.

I'm not sure how many people here have heard of the game, but my favorite game when it comes to music is Genso Suikoden II.

A good part of the music from Metroid Prime is good.

I will admit that I'm quite shocked that I haven't seen pictures of Kefka and Sephiroth yet.

The Silent Assassin recommends the soundtracks to the games in the Total War series.
He also tends to listen to the LotR and Blast! soundtracks when there is no available soundtrack.

Anything by Jeremy Soule. I played Dungeon Siege solely for the music.
Frank Klepacki's score for Red Alert. 'Face to the Enemy' is probably the favourite.
One Must Fall. If I listened to it now, it probably wouldn't be so good, but years ago, it was awesome.
The Subterra soundtrack is okay too, before the repetitions drive you insane.

EDIT: The bad pun wasn't intentional. Well, not at first.

The music in Dungeon Siege was excellent. I'd have to say my favorite soundtracks are Oblivion, Arcanum, LotR, Max Payne (esp. the second theme song), and Stronghold (mainly Crusader, but 1 and 2 had good music too).

The music in some old games like Realmz or the original Age of Empires is also good.

Realmz had music? How do I not know this?

I'm with Tyran about the FF music. Is it lame that I listen to it regularly? :P

Specifically, the OSTs to FF6, FF7, FF8, and FFT.
