Doom, Doom II and the Playstation version of Final Doom; Quake, with honorable mention to Purusa's Neh tracks; and Blood, mainly because it uses its own wavetables. Wonderful.
Incidentally, if anyone can explain why Blood has started soft-resetting my computer for no obvious reason, please let me know.

don't forget the calmly serene music of Tetris. I bet it drove Vondur nuts.

DUnno if it's good or not, but I seriously wanted to get it based on the stuff I heard from it, but I can't find it anywhere. The shit I heard was fuckin cool tho. Very nice stuff :D

But Descent 2 had cd-quality audio, done by Type-O-Negative and a few members of Skinny Puppy. ^_^ It was pretty intense as I recall, I should dig that out...
Another game I remember is Mechwarrior 2. Sorta a tribal/orchestral hybrid soundtrack, also pretty cool.
games with bad soundtracks... Quake 2 and Quake 3, yuck. generic industrial rock. :/

and I also still remember Warcraft 2 soundtrack. Absolutely not annoying and very athmospheric.
Yes, I know I luv midi :)

Why on earth has no-one mentioned SYSTEM SHOCK 2 yet? What the hell is wrong with you people. Now that's the kind of music games should have.

...has the coolest MIDI stereo effects. Listening to it now makes it sound like the sound source keeps moving around my desk. Woah.

Can't forget Age of Empires, now, can I? It's got a nice ambience.

The soundtracks that come to mind for me are:
Starcraft/Warcraft: especially the starcraft one that goes NA NA, NA NA NAAAA!! You know the one.
Diablo: the original diablo was the best i remember, nice and folky and gothic
Alice and Quake: grouped together because they're so obvious, also due to the nin connection. Chris vrenna probably did a better job than trent but I think he had more time to work on the tracks.
Total Annihilation: well its the greatest rts ever to of course its going to have a great soundtrack :). Really nice orchestral stuff, suits the game perfectly...the sort of epic stuff you want to hear as you send 100 gunships in to kill those damn laser towers.

Absolutely agree. I still have grabbed Total Annihilation soundtrack (AoE too) in my mp3 archive.
I especially liked the track Blood of the machines. Cool track with even more cool name.

them from CDDB before grabbing the disk.
If you want I may send them to you.
BTW The artist name of all tracks is Cavedog Entertainment.
Very funny is that artist name of AoE soundtrack is Microsoft corporation :) It's interesting to see Billy G. singing 8D

then you have to wait a little, cuz my mp3 archive is not at my comp now. I had a HDD crash awhile ago and all my mp3's are stored at my friend's hard drive. I'll send you track names when I get my mp3's back or at least just visit my friend
