I keep thinking of songs to suggest to the author and then realizing that they're all on PS2. :-\

I love the Half Life 2 Music/sounds
Tekken 6 also good

I disagree with #1 It's just bleeps and bloops xD

But seriously, they left out some pretty good stuff.

I could think of better songs from Tekken 6 and UC2, for example.

ExplosionSauce, that was a perfect, perfect joke. Beyond!

Still, I like that Tekken 6 track a lot. It's the one I remember from the game. And believe me, the rest of what I remembered from that game was a giant ball of rage... I really like the old-school single-player Tekken, and I didn't appreciate fighting random guys on a dock over and over again. That guitar yodel saved the game.

I adored Venice in ACII (apparently more than most people? heard a few disliked it for some reason) but the music of the area was absolutely beautiful and just set the scene brilliantly.

Earth was a stunning track too, like the author says it's pace and speed and vocals, just everything about it was inch-perfect and done so well.

Good choices by the author. Was happy to see Nate's Theme 2.0 up there in the top five. And I agree about Compass from RDR. I listened to the lyrics of that song as I was riding to the next destination in the game, fit the mood and atmosphere of what was going on as perfectly as I've ever seen in any game.
