    Tracks I think were ahead if their time? -Megablast from Xenon 2 ( although not an original game track, was amazing for its time) -Chaos Engine with its electronic music that changed when you got to a certain parts of the map.

    I agree with all of theese except the OutRun one. It may just be the sample but the tune sounds like a Genesis crashing. Great list.

    Also: Shatterhand is maybe the best least-appreciated NES soundtrack out there. Have a listen:

    @JakkedGamer They didn't include Duke Nukem because GamesRadar cares not about PCGaming, save the odd decade-and-half old adventure that is. Several RTS and TBS had unique ahead-of-its-time music themes, but they couldn't bother, as long as they can say their praises to 90ies Nintendo nostalgia. Even in the Best Games by platform (or somesuch) they separated the companies by console generation (which lasts about 5 years each) and the PC was separated by decade (when the game generations are way faster in PCs, about 3 years). Do you notice that whenever they make these lists there's only a chance in hell a PC game will show on it (and a RPG won't be a Final Fantasy) if it's a list about adventure games?

    I think legendary should be on here because its soundtrack was amazingly composed and gives the player(at least me) an amp before I evan started playing. Best Example is the main menu song just perfect for FPS.

    i agree with rare hero...any ridge racer game has awesome soundtrack but banjo kazooie has some of the most memorable tunes with slightly changes when in the water it. Now also has to be said all those tunes are great

    What, No Halo?!?! Dude, the soundtrack was epic! I mean, seriously, why not Halo? Is it lame, or didn't make the cut?

    If they make a sequel to this article, they should put in the Too Human OST. While the game is ok, the music is absolutrly beastly. If u havent heard it, find it on iTunes (yes its there, I have it) and listen to some of the samples.
  • The_Tingler - May 2, 2009 5:09 p.m.

    Think you should've included Monkey Island 2 in there for the dynamic iMuse system, but otherwise an excellent list. I didn't realise Sonic Rush had such an excellent soundtrack!
  • Germcleaner - May 3, 2009 10:38 p.m.

    I loved how GTA3 used sound. Being able to change stations that sounded like real ones was great.

    Pause at 1:27 of the sonic CD clip... Hilarious! reCAPTCHA: mildewed "Bwana

    That Magical Sound Shower song reminds me of the Dragon Roost Island music from wind waker for some reason...
  • secretsearcher - August 29, 2009 3:56 p.m.

    Pretty good music I have to admit.
  • secretsearcher - August 29, 2009 3:59 p.m.

    And that Alien Breakdown Song has a seriously good beat to it. I'm a popper/hip hop dancer, and that made me want to go and get down under like a disco ball or something. Good stuff!!
  • ELpork - April 28, 2009 9:35 p.m.

    Yaay, LOVE The ssbb theme.

    Brett's raging erection for game music has again been satisfied. Great article!
