List the games you like the menu music from, they don't have to be in any particular order and they don't have to be only from your favorite games as long as you liked the menu music.

Jade Empire
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl
The Witcher 2
Knights of the Old Republic 1 & 2
Max Payne 1 & 2
Perfect Dark
Republic Commando
Sins of a Solar Empire
Prey

I only put down ones that I remembered liking.

MGS: Peace Walker has some great menu music for a majority of the game. At some point in the game's story (can't remember... post last boss?), the music changes and isn't nearly as cool.

Also, I second the notion that Perfect Dark's menu music is cool.

Can't think of ten games at the moment, but this is definitely my number 1:

Same here but Amnesia's main theme is certainly one of my favourites along with, Deus Ex, FTL and Unreal. I have a lot more favourites but those really do spring (pardon the pun) to mind.

Saints Row 3
Far Cry 1
League of Legends
Deus Ex 1
Oblivion
Donkey Kong Country 1 and 2
Vampire Bloodlines
plus some obscure medieval fantasy RTS in the late 90s

More or less all the titles I can think of that made me sit at the main menu, just listening. Interesting to see I like (or liked at one point) all of these games, too. There's probably some correlation here, i.e. the longer you play a game the more often you hear the main tune, and familiarity matters in music.

Just a few

It's amazing how ahead of the time the A500 was...no other version of Xenon II had this amazing intro, if anything because none could cope with the sampling/MOD format required...

I prefer this version. Other versions just don't sound right.

Some of the ones already mentioned:
Xenon 2. Descent, OMF 2097, Crusader.

And another two: Syndicate (1993), System Shock (1994)

But definitely best is Crusader No Remorse and No Regret, like Lupin said.

so many great ones mentioned (especially Icewind Dale and Deus Ex), but i'll go with lupin and kristus. The Traveler from Crusader kicks way too much ass.

here's my favourite weird choice... theme 1 of Ascendancy (it's one of the repeating game themes, but it's always the first one to start with the menus)

Unreal
Deus Ex
Unreal Tournament
Hexen
Malice (Quake 2 add-on)
Rise of the Triad ("HR music")
Lemmings
Castlevania (though I don't have the game or know anything about it)
Descent
Outcast
Blood (yes, this list goes up to 11)

Oh, and I ignored the thing about menu music. These games all have great music, so I presume the menu music was good too, though I barely remember it in most cases, as it's not exactly the track you hear most.

Terran 2 is actually some of my favorite game music ever, actually. But is it menu music? I honestly can't remember, but I know it's at least used in missions.

Nope, not main menu music. This one is. (And this is from Brood War.)
Correct me if I am wrong. It's been ages when I last played SC.

Another one: Wrath of Earth.
Can't find music anywhere from the internet, though.

While that's one of my ATF soundtracks, it's an in-game rather than menu music.

You mean menu music? What an unusual topic... In any case, DOOM 3 wins for me:



for the simple reason that this music gets replayed in full force when you win the game. Otherwise you'll only hear the more silent song, which is also awesome.
