The Killzone series has amazing music, especially the third (and most recent) installment. Where most games go for moody, heightened tension a la Inception or other recent blockbuster movies, Killzone is just balls-to-the-wall brass and timpani like a super-evil Star Wars score.

*quasi-bump*

Came back in the thread to say that I recently got FTL on Steam, and (aside from being an all-around good game anyway) the music is really good. It's on the chippy-ish side, which kind of surprised me for a space game, but it made sense once I started playing. I feel like it does a good job of capturing the empty, lonely feel of running from a rebellion through sectors of space where it seems like EVERYONE wants to kill you.

I could've sworn someone else mentioned it earlier in the thread, too.

When I saw virt on stage at MAG, my first thought was "this guy is.. adorable. Why am I using that word?"

virt is so charismatic and likeable I couldn't stand it. Then he started the music and it was the sickest opener I'd. Ever. Heard.

Mirrors edge is a good example. DAT BOAT CHASE SONG. MMMMM. but really, it has a nice futuristic feel that helps really set the pace.

on a similar vein, the soundtrack to inmomentum, is similarly futuristic and fun to listen to. I think it came with indiegamemusic bundle 3 or 4, for those who are familiar with that. im STILL sorting through all those albums...

I concur with both points! I feel kind of like I have enough music for the next couple of years with all the bundles and what not..
