I don't have the patience to find examples of these… Uh…
Games by Genre - MMO: FFXI Soundtrack (Yes, the whole thing) Shooters: Halo 2: Blow Me Away - Breaking Benjamin (From the fight with Tartarus) And Steve Vai's - Halo 2: The Mjolnir Mix RPG: Toss up between FF7 and FF12. They both had good soundtracks. Fighting: Like Zeno, I took like the Guilty Gear soundtrack, but I'm also quite partial to the DOA series soundtracks. Flight Sims: the Ace Combat Series always has good ones. Action: Ninja Gaiden/Ninja Gaiden 2 (XBox/XBox360 releases, not NES etc.)
Overall though, I think my favorite game soundtrack would have to be the Legacy of Kain series.
Movies.. Hmm. That's more difficult. Queen of the Damned had a decent line up. I liked the Pirates of the Caribbean soundtracks as well. Movies are difficult…. Oh, the Transporter movies had good ones too.
Holy crap. I'm going to have to find my MW2 discs and hope they still work… Those songs gave me a total blast from the past. It's amazing that I can still almost hum along to many of them. :smile: Those video clips don't look like they're all from MW2 though.
And yes, the LotR soundtrack is the awesomeness.
I liked the Quest for Glory aka Hero's Quest soundtrack, Zelda as well. I quite like the Morrowind/Oblivion soundtracks as well, especially the opening theme to Oblivion (a faster, modified version of Morrowind's). There are more that I like that I'm not thinking of right now… And of course, my fondness for the music might not be due to the music's intrinsic qualities.
Unfortunately I don't have my badass sidewinder joystick anymore… I think that one's with my parents somewhere, and I have one of the inferior models. Come to think of it, I'm not sure the better joystick could even be plugged into my computer… don't remember if it's USB.

I've been trying to think of what makes a good soundtrack. Lots of movies and games have good songs, but that's not a soundtrack. While there are plenty of good ones, I have to give a nod to one of the recent musicals that, of course, drew a lot of heat from the moral minority.
I'm speaking, of course, of South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut. :)
Obviously, if you, your boss, your child, your cat, are easily offended, don't bother watching it.
