* ''Age of Mythology'' has some great background music (with odd names) but n. d. nile would have to be the best.



* ''VideoGame/AgeOfEmpiresIII'':
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IOfNw6tz1dc The title theme. Awesome.]]
** The title theme from the first game has been updated as the era (and the software capability) has changed since ''Age of Empires''.

* Just about anything from ''LaTale'' qualifies. The game is fun, but nothing amazing. The music, however, is very good. Most of it has a sort of upbeat techno feel, and it's very catchy. (The soundtrack can be found [[http://wiki.ggftw.com/latale/LaTale:Soundtrack here,]] by the way.)

* ''VideoGame/CodenamePanzers: Phase One''. It may be just an overlooked Hungarian game about [[WorldWarII the most commonly played war since the war itself]], but, dammit, it has [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RFIJJaqJExU some]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-7eWlHl96Rg good]] tunes.

* ''VideoGame/{{Diablo}}.'' The first game featured some ridiculously atmospheric tracks. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q2evIg-aYw8 Tristram]] theme comes to mind.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_7ekMFeC5V4 Raise some hell]]. Sadly there is no studio version of this.

** That's not to say ''VideoGame/DiabloII'' doesn't have its good tracks. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YruCuC6gbl0 Case in point]].

*** When you defeat Diablo, the introductory guitar riffs from Tristram's theme plays.
***
[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BODYxesJLVo Straight from the first act.]]
*** The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gdLjvpHk39Y Spider]] piece that's used for Act III's dungeons uses a remixed version of a portion of the theme that was used for the starting church levels of the original game. Nostalgia will hit like a ton of bricks.
*** The music in Act V, starting from the theme of Harrogath itself. The music really reminds you that 'this is it', you've defeated two Prime Evils, went ToHellAndBack, and fought many difficult battles-- and now this is ''the'' final struggle. Time to deal the decisive blow to the devils who have brought so many deaths and despair across the Sanctuary. You're not alone, the Barbarians of Harrogath are fighting alongside you. And if you're a Barbarian yourself, this is also a case of ItsPersonal: for the liberation of your homeland.
*** "[[https://www.youtube.

* A little-known game by Apogee called ''VideoGame/RiseOfTheTriad'' did this with half the music in the game. Instead of going atmospheric and moody like most first-person shooters of the time, Triad had music that made you want to charge in, guns blazing - and given that almost all the game mechanics revolved around the RuleOfCool, this was not only feasible, but [[SoCoolItsAwesome totally awesome to do.]]
