One of the unexpected results of this past generation, for me, has been my interest in the soundtracks of video games. The sophistication of video game soundtracks has really gotten to new levels recently(past decade). I find myself listening to them at work, completely outside the context of gaming.

So I was wondering which ones if any do you guys listen to. Here are my favorites:
-Braid
-World of Goo
-Super Mario Galaxy
-Shadow of the Colossus (very tense music)

If you haven't already they are worth checking out (even if you haven't played the games, or are not into video games IMHO).

Cheers

Chrono Trigger
Civ IV

Other than that, indie games usually have better music.
The new Mac Pro has up to 30 MB of cache inside the processor itself. That's more than the HD in my first Mac. Somehow I'm still running out of space.

Myst and Katamari Damacy.

Not all the KD albums, though. Just the ones from the original PS 2 game, We Love Katamari, and Beautiful Katamari.

Also, Kirby's Dream Land 3 has some pretty great stuff, as does Kirby's Epic Yarn.

Addendum: To The Moon. Not that the game has any real gameplay, it's more of a point-and-click adventure with only one path, but the music is excellent.
