I played Alice a little bit few years ago, don't remember much of the soundtrack but I did check out the individual soundtrack release on amazon.com, pretty cool.

alice is great, I bought the record - chris vrenna is a great musician.

the myst series also have great scores, riven and exile especially. I'm gonna buy the Uru one after new years. 
Bleh 
- i wish the soundtracks wouldn't be deliberate, they should be imperceptible and improve atmosphere in the same time.

- i wanna listen to soundtracks for the same reason described above

- quake, starcraft, alice, unreal 
 
Tetris. 
Yes 
Alice, Quake, Blood. 
Chrono Trigger

Changing My Vote To Classic Zelda... 
And Seeming Inertia Mentioned Chrono Trigger: 
 
 
But Where's The Acapella Bubble Bobble? 
Here: 
ROFL 
 
Unreal Tournament 
Had a great soundtrack imo, trancey sort of, mellow at times and rushing at other times, a nice mix of styles.

Other soundtracks I like are Unreal 1, and errr some more bah :) 
 
Vice City. 
Castlevania: 
Symphony of the Night.

Quake is really good, but i don't like listening to it when i'm not playing. Same goes for a lot of NES games.

Rise of the Triad was memorable. I wonder how it would sound to my ears now after so many years.

Of my favorite music moments, I would include the sequence at the start of the 'blastpit' section of Half-Life. It gave the feeling that something bizaar was waiting for you just around the corner.

Arx Fatalis's music also had a creepy vibe. 
:E
