I was actually going to show you some video game music myself, but seeing as you’re already experienced in it, I’ll show you a classical piece that is tangentally related.
The Flying Dutchman Overture-Wagner
Video Game music is very much indebted to Wagner who, in his operas, really innovated with the concept of the leitmotiffm, aka a specific melody to be associated with certain characters, situations etc. The one game series that really impresses me with its use of Leitmotiffs is the legend of Zelda series, in particular Wind Waker. The way established themes are worked into new musical setting is just awesome. Send me a private message if you’d like to discuss video game music some more, I have a lot to say on the subject.
