    Do you have a favorite full soundtrack for a video game you've played? I'm not talking about just one single track, but, the entire composition for the entire video game?

    I'd like you to post the top three choices you'd consider to be among the best full soundtracks for ANY game you've ever played. Not just this year, but any year! And, try to list them in the order of 1, 2, 3, with 1 being the best of the lot.

    I'll monitor this thread through the end of November and then compile a list from the ones posted for a poll of the FIVE most nominated soundtracks from the thread.

    GO!

    EDITED for Clarification: As some have mentioned games that include licensed music, the intent of this thread is to limit the suggestions to ORIGINAL sound tracks only made exclusively for that particular video game. Carry on!

    Assassin's Creed games (first two or three in particular)
    HoMM III (truly epic, I still hear it sampled in shows and other media)

    There are others, but I can't remember right now.

    I would add any of the GTA 3-5 sound tracks too (and maybe CTW), but that's kinda cheating since they are primarily made up of licensed songs. Same with a few of the NFS series (like Underground 1 & 2) that had songs from Snoop Dogg, Overseer, Junkie XL, and what not.

    Yes, my intent really is more to the original compositions just for the games. Getting into licensed commercial tracks kind of defeats the purpose.

    That's the reason I didn't include GTA in my list, otherwise they would have certainly ranked in there somewhere.

    Diablo
    Elder Scrolls games (Morrowind is the most memorable to me)
    Super Mario 3
    Legend of Zelda series (you have to include this one)
    Quake
    GTA: Vice City (Not original stuff, but it adds so much to the feel of the game given the time period)

    Just 3? It's going to be very unfair for many games, but...

    3) Sid Meier's Colonization (the original MS-DOS version)
    2) Ascendancy
    1) Star Trek Birth of the Federation



    Honorable mentions, X-Com UFO Defense, Mass Effect, Exolon (ST), Doom, Lotus, Afterburner, Outrun, etc

    Yes, really want everyone to give some thought to their nominations. Honorable Mentions are OK, though. If enough of the same one gets listed, it could make it to the main list. ;)

    One more for the list: Final Fantasy 6 SNES (aka. FF3).

    Other than 7, this is still, by far, my favourite FF game.

    Please, RE-READ Post #1: GTA IV uses LICENSED music. Only those with ORIGINAL Sound Tracks are allowed. This very issue was already discussed previously.
