Not exactly a soundtrack I guess, but "Still Alive"--the end credits song in Portal--is the best song ever incorporated into a game. Fight me. (Or don't.)

Speaking of Still Alive, that song by the same name that was done for the original Mirror's Edge is one the best songs ever to come out of a video game.

Deus Ex Human Revolution is hands down the best soundtrack for me. Civilization IV is probably a close second. Honorable mentions are pretty much anything Jesper Kyd has done and the Halo soundtracks.

I've had nothing but good experiences with Aspyr too, but that was all at least a few years ago. Clearly, something changed. I wouldn't be surprised if they're simply trying to stay afloat. But they keep publishing things...

The things they publish do well too, at least critically.

Exactly. This is something I don't understand. In my experience most companies think reply at all is better than a reply with negative news. When they have to tell someone "No, you're out of luck." most of the time they just don't even bother answering. In my opinion it's just ridiculous and absolutely not-done to not answer someone. No matter how good or bad the reply might be, companies should always answer. I'd rather get a reply telling me "No, screw you, loser." than no reply at all. This way at least I've got an answer to my question.

Aspyr and Feral are actually perfect examples of two companies that are completely at the opposite site of the spectrum. Aspyr has never answered me or even shown any sign of still being alive. No matter what way you use to contact them, no matter the subject you're contacting them about, it all doesn't matter. It's as if all incoming communication is being redirected straight to Trash and no-one ever sees it. Contact Feral by email, on social media or whatever about any subject you want and within a few hours you'll get a reply. Even if they've got to tell you: "No, that's not going to happen. This game is too old and unknown to still put resources into porting it to the Mac." It doesn't matter if they've got to bring you bad news. They will answer. To me that's really important. As a company you've got a reputation to keep up and answering emails and messages is in my opinion very important.

I've had nothing but positive experiences with Feral support, even when they can't really do anything to help me like you said. They're awesome.

I guess Aspyr is just one of the cool mobile/pc publishers now so they don't have time for their OG mac friends anymore. (Sarcasm).

A recent correspondence with them resulted in the gleaned attitude of "all old games are unsupported"... as in, they do not want to support them, offer them, handle them, or anything to do with them. Not for prior buyers. If they have a game currently being sold, its the only thing they are supporting.

Also late response to this, assuming thats true, they couldve literally written a one sentence response explaining that, but they havent.
