The Dig is great. It managaes to turn a fairly dull and ordinary game into a intriguing one. Michael Land is a master.

The score to Police Quest III is interesting because it’s composed by Jan Hammer to take full advantage of the Roland MT-32. Some of the tracks sound like they’re out takes from the Miami Vice soundtrack: http://youtu.be/HD4i—buG-s?t=1m11s

Not the best soundtrack, but some really strong tracks in here.

The best of the best would have to be between L.A. Noire or one of the Gabe Knights for me, but I’ll also throw Discworld Noir into the ring because I love this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fO_CLha6M7U

Myst III: Exile.

Grim Fandango, Broken Sword. Curse of Monkey Island, Myst IV: Revelations, Discworld 2 & Noir, Silent Hill 1-4 (if they count as adventures).

I guess Riven is somewhere in the top 20, if that.

In no particular order: Machinarium, Riven, Discworld Noir, GK2, Neverhood, Last Express, Dear Esther. (Don’t tell me Dear Esther is not a game. Smile)

PS: I also liked the Comer soundtrack quite a bit. Comer? I can hear you cry… Yes, Comer. A genuine adventure a la Myst.

I really liked Fahrenheit soundtrack, especially Martina Topley-Bird’s Sandpaper Kisses (plays in Carla’s apartment).

I remember enjoying the L.A. Noire, Gabriel Knight and Discworld Noir soundtracks too.

One I could mention is actually Still Life 2. I hated the game but the music was good.

OH! Okay, I guess I am not positive if this counts as an AG, but I LOVE the soundtrack to Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines!

(I also have Sandpaper Kisses on a CD mix of video games music - love it! And I don’t remember the music from Still Life 2. I hated the game, but I’ll have to look into the music now…)

Bloodlines is a great game. Definitely a superb atmosphere and would definitely recommend it to any adventure gamer that doesn’t hate action. Too bad the game turns a bit too much to hack’n'slash towards the end, I never even finished it. But I bought it some time ago from Steam sale and will give it another chance with some mods in the future.

Hmm…for me, it comes down to a choice of one of these games:

Grim Fandango
Curse of Monkey Island
The Dig
The Neverhood
Broken Sword 1
Machinarium
The Myst series in general
Shivers
Gabriel Knight 2 and 3

If I really had to pick only one, I’d probably go with Grim Fandango for how perfectly it fits the game, along with its high quality all around.

And an honorable mention to the second Agon episode. It’s too short to compete with the above games musicwise, but there’s a haunting dulcimer piece in it that I loved.

My favourite AG soundtrack is and has always been Michael Land’s soundtrack for The Dig. It’s simply beautiful and most of the great atmosphere in that game comes directly from the music…

I also really liked the music in To the Moon. Those piano bits are just soooo good!
