The House of the Rising Sun in InFamous 2 trailer, No Rest for the Wicked, from Borderlands intro and Make It Bun Dem from Far Cry 3.

Mad World Gears 1 advertisement was nice. Not in game, though.

psplova1795d ago

Thinking of this one too..

Bathyj1795d ago

That commercial had more heart and emotion than the actual game.

gangsta_red1795d ago

I must be the only one that hated that song to the game.

Wingsfan241795d ago

They did use it in Gears of War 3 though didn't they? "SPOILER" Dom's death if I recall? "/SPOILER"

I liked Priscilla's song in 'Wild Hunt'... that was a lovely moment, at least until Geralt got recognised by that Temerian woman from White Orchid.

I also love the Jose Gonzalez song from Red Dead Redemption... when you first set foot in Mexico it starts playing and it's beautiful.

So far as soundtracks go, the SNES Donkey Kong Country games are still my faves - they had some really atmospheric, almost melancholy music.

I really loved the song in the God of War Ascension from the ashes trailer. Gives me Goosebumps everytime. Also, the song Rosie sings at a funeral in Valkyrie Chronicles brought tears to my eyes.
