What Musicians Should do a Video Game Soundtrack?

Video Game scores need to be more epic. I decided to handpick some of my choices for a video game soundtrack. (3DS, Deus Ex, Dev, Next-Gen, Nintendo DS, PC, PS Vita, PS2, PS3, PSP, Red Dead Redemption, Tomb Raider 2013, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Many times this.

Especially with some of their more electronic and sampled beats laden material, with just some low, haunting Yorke vocals giving it that ethereal feel. Think Half-Life or Portal with that sort of soundtrack...

Definitely Björk, she kind of already done it with her album Biophilia, where one can Interact with the tracks on an Ipad.
I read that she initially wanted to make the album on an old console. I think her instrumentals would give a great atmosphere to a game, maybe with a gameplay/plot/story produced, directed and written by Michel Gondry.

I imagined some Silent Hill themed scenes, when listened to Bjork's Vespertine.

I always imagined "hyperballad" could be the soundtrack to a weird, crazy, wonderful, magical platform game. The video itself looks like a video game http://www.youtube.com/watc...

Maybe with a character called Isobel http://www.youtube.com/watc...

There's a lot of electronic musicians, like Flying Lotus, that would be good for certain types of games. Ennio Morricone, the guy who did music for a lot of the Clint Eastwood westerns, would be awesome too.

It really depends on the type of game, obviously.

Yello, maybe. For some fun action game.
