Cool Favorite Videogame Soundtracks?

Do you like videogame music? I remember from the PSOne launch taking the CDRoms for Tomb Raider and Wipeout and listening to the music on my CD player and marveling at how game music had grown up.

I think the Myst soundtracks, which started as experimental ambient projects, have had alot of effect on that genre of game music..

fast forward to now and soundtracks have all manner of quality.. this piece from Rise of the Argonauts reminds me of the Gladiator soundtrack by Hans Zimmer and Lisa Gerrard...

Akira Yamaoka with the Silent Hill series created a videogame score, part ambient/part industrial, that redefined what sound could evoke in games..

sometimes game music is just so beautiful I can't stand it...

what are your favorite game soundtracks?
