The music of computer games

It occurred to me last night, as I was playing NWN with some friends, that the background music of computer games has improved a great deal over the last 15 years. No more tinny, grating MIDI files being played on very simple sound cards. I sometimes wonder if the music of Age of Empires might be as memorable as all the pop hits of previous decades are. Of course the pop hits of previous decades are hardly high brow (Assuming that’s something that anything really wants to be.) but it says something about how bad computer game music was to say that it’s reached this level now.
