If you do, well do I have a treat for you. But I'll tell you that in a while. Me, I love the soundtrack of almost all my favorite games, and all the tracks used in those games too. Unfortunately, you barely find those tracks anywhere else, and trust me, I've looked and I've looked online for lots of my favorite music that I first heard in games, but usually was always disappointed. That was until I found this awesome site, with free downloads to the soundtracks of any game you could possibly imagine. So if you like the music in the games that you play and always wanted to have it, then check out this site, you won't be disappointed. http://downloads.khinsider.com/game-soundtracks Just pick the name of the game you want the track for and you can download it for free.. Enjoy!

I like a lot of the music from games...the first time I really noticed music in games was when I first played NiGHTS Into Dreams on the Sega Saturn, I just loved the music, which was kinda "light" and cheerful...and the really cool thing was you could putthe game in a CD player and listen to the soundtrack, and I really loved the title song too, even though it was quite soppy sounding. These days there are some really cool tracks featured in games like SmackDown! Vs Raw, Burnout, SSX and more...some of them are classics and some of them are by artists that are not heard about, which is cool. A prime example for me was listening to the tracks on Burnout Revenge and I heard a song called Common Mistake (I can't remember the name of the artist...damn brain farts!) which is one of my favorite songs these days. There is a downside to games music, and recenty I happened accross an example. I bought Burnout Dominator for the PS2 (I love the Burnout games!) and there is 4 versions of Avril LAvigne's "Girlfriend"...they have her singing it in English, Japanese, Mandarin and Spanish! I feel that is a waste of 3 slots for some mind-blowing tracks!

yeah, I've never really played burnout, but I love the music in SSX and all the racing games. They're the best, and you don't get to hear that stuff on the radio. This site is awesome and has all those tracks. I did try to find out what band "common mistake" is from but couldn't but I'm sure you'll find it in the soundtrack for the game. I actually loved the songs in SSX: on tour, but that album is still not on that site yet. Now that was a great soundtrack..

I actually bought the CD of the soundtrack from SSX Tricky a few years back directly from EA Games....but do you think I can find it anywhere? The really silly thing is my CD collection isn't exaclty small, yet I seem to have misplaced a few of my CDs...I'm wondering if my brother has "borrowed" them...

Crazy vega, crazy! I have another friend who is just like you, who would rip the music from the game to listen. I don't mind music in games that is nice. Most are quite ok. But I am not obsessed enough to want to listen to it out of the game. In fact, half the time, I listen to internet radio and mute the in-game music.

Okok, it's just that the music gets annoying sometimes when it becomes repetitive. :P

I love games in music especially if the game's an action packed one.So far I've liked the music that comes with most of the car games I've played and it also gets you into the game which is more important. About the downloads I've downloaded the soundtracks for the hot pursuit,underground 2 and most wanted long time back.But the link was quite interesting.It has a huge collection and most of the games that i don't even know.

Yeah, I love the soundtracks of all need for speeds and midnight club, and I usually have a hard time looking for these songs, all of them. But it's so cool to find these and many more songs that I won't find anywhere else, like the ending song of fatal frame, I didn't even know what that was called to look for it. This site is really awesome!

Yeah, oops, not there, but I did come across Battlefield, but not the same one I guess. Well, at least you found the other ones, something's better than nothing.

Yeah, I like games with very nice musek and special effects...music is big plus to the game without it..the game will be boring and dull and nobody will like it or can be considered as vintage, low-budgeted so I will not attract me to play it...it the first thing that I look for in a game. The game that I played with nice sound effects and cool music is DOTA.

DOTA well, I think i saw that there in the site.. Yeah, a game is really incomplete without its soundtrack. It just sets the whole mood for the game..

Thanks for the great site. I have been looking for such a site for a very long time. I play a lot of games and loved many of the theme music of many games, but was not able to get them. I believe, I will be getting all the music I need from the site you have shared with us. I should agree, that the quality of the music are really improving in the recent times. They are so good that, someone can easily release an album with the best of them.

Yeah, most of my favorite music actually comes from games, so I guess game soundtracks are better than most albums anyway.. Well, I hope you find all the game music you might be looking for.. I know I did, from this site. It's really got a very extensive library. I haven't even heard of lots of games on there...

Oh, I know what you mean about the music in games. It's hard to explain, but once you play a certain game for any extended amount of time, the music can get stuck in your head. When something is that catchy, you just want to hear it again and again. I feel that way about a lot of the Legend of Zelda music. My absolute favorite game music has to be the Katamari music. Those songs are just so wacky and so much fun. After finishing the game, I just had to go out and get all the soundtracks.
