Dom's E2M8... 
...has the coolest MIDI stereo effects. Listening to it now makes it sound like the sound source keeps moving around my desk. Woah. 
Can't forget Age of Empires, now, can I? It's got a nice ambience. 
The soundtracks that come to mind for me are:

Starcraft/Warcraft: especially the starcraft one that goes NA NA, NA NA NAAAA!! You know the one.

Diablo: the original diablo was the best i remember, nice and folky and gothic

Alice and Quake: grouped together because they're so obvious, also due to the nin connection. Chris vrenna probably did a better job than trent but I think he had more time to work on the tracks.

Total Annihilation: well its the greatest rts ever to of course its going to have a great soundtrack :). Really nice orchestral stuff, suits the game perfectly...the sort of epic stuff you want to hear as you send 100 gunships in to kill those damn laser towers.

Absolutely agree. I still have grabbed Total Annihilation soundtrack (AoE too) in my mp3 archive.
I especially liked the track Blood of the machines. Cool track with even more cool name. 
The Tracks Have Names? 
could tell me how to get them? When I ripped them all I got was 7 tracks of 'battle' and 9 tracks of 'building'.... not so catchy :D 
CDDB, Probably. 
CDDB is where I got the track listing for the Quake CD tracks. 
I Checked The Site 
and i couldn't get anything better than the cddb titles that were automatically downloaded, weird... 
I Got 
them from CDDB before grabbing the disk.
If you want I may send them to you.

BTW The artist name of all tracks is Cavedog Entertainment.
Very funny is that artist name of AoE soundtrack is Microsoft corporation :) It's interesting to see Billy G. singing 8D 
i would certainly appreciate it if you could send me the track names, thanks. My email is 
then you have to wait a little, cuz my mp3 archive is not at my comp now. I had a HDD crash awhile ago and all my mp3's are stored at my friend's hard drive. I'll send you track names when I get my mp3's back or at least just visit my friend 
HDD Crash Buddies! 
thanks again 
Chris vrenna probably did a better job than trent...

Calling you Sally, face-fucking you with a five gallon fire-extinguisher... 
drunkk postnig? 
I resent that implication, sirrah. Fisticuffs at dawn! 
I'll go down on someone if he gives me the Enclave Soundtrack in mp3. 
Point Of Order 
to be fair, you'd go down on someone if he didn't give you the Enclave Soundtrack in mp3. 
I liked the darker stuff in Hitman 1. I also downloaded the entire Deus Ex 2 soundtrack at official site, good stuff too. I've got some various stuff from Summoner 1, 2... Descent Freespace 1, 2, Hitman 2 and 3... several dev's release the music online free. 
Quake 1 = best game soundtrack ever. Also I thought Dungeon Keeper had really good music and ambience, as did Unreal 1. Half-Life had some great moments - especially the initial train ride. Doom also had its moments, but some of the music was a little bit out of place.

I guess Alice had pretty good music/atmos. as well, but I didn't play past the first few levels as I found the game so tediously boring.

Also I really liked the ambience in the N64 port of Quake, although the added coloured lighting was a bit sloppy.

I also second the notion that the music in both Quake II and Quake III is complete garbage ;) 

all great songs. ^_^ 
For What Quake 2's Songs Were.. 
I liked them. But I prefer music less in-your-face for games, especially if audio cues play a part in the gameplay, which they don't necessarily do in Quake 2, but either way I prefer something more ambient. 
Also I thought Dungeon Keeper had really good music and ambience

Definately. I still spin the DK disc from time to time when I need to chill out a bit. The opening 'pastoral prelude' track is one of the most soothing pieces of music I've heard and the rest are all Tolkienesque and cartoon-cavernous :)

AM's Alice music was some of the best design in the game I think. Long after completing it, I still listen to a couple of the tracks for mood. 
Where can i download these TA soundtrack 
i'm not sure if you can. I ripped it off the TA disc though, and thats probably a good bet. If you don't own TA, you can probably pick it up for almost nothing now, and you get an awesome game and a nice soundtrack for your money.

amazon has it for $8.99 new or $2.90 second-hand. 
Hello . Where can i get Enclave soundtrack in mp3. Can You help me guys ? :)
