Sorry but no greatest soundtrack list is valid unless Actraiser is on it.

From the trailers Halo 3 looks to have a killer soundtrack.

amazing that you've played enough games with decent soundtracks to determine that you need to narrow it down to such an exclusive level as to warrant a TOP 100

Ice Cap Zone in Sonic 3 has always been one of my favorite tunes, plus all the Robotnik boss themes.

Most people would just cut and paste lists such as this. I appreciate the effort you've put forth here.

Indeed. I'd be hard-pressed to come up with 100 games that didn't have crap soundtracks.

When I played through Doom (or was it Doom II?) a few years back, I noticed that there were two or three songs that were ripoffs of Alice in Chains songs. I wonder how many other Doom songs were ripped off from elsewhere...

Exactly. It is a nice job on the list, but damn that is a lot. As for soundtracks I could probably come up with a half dozen greats. Now if we were talking great theme songs then 100 would be easier.
