I've been doing some tests lately and while I haven't been able to try the MT-32, I think DOTT and S&M sound really good with general midi, especially if coupled with quality soundfonts. I'd guess MT-32 would work better for the older games but whether you want the sound the creators intended, the nostalgic adlib or more realistic instruments is a matter of taste.
Any opinions on good soundfonts? I think the GeneralUser GS
is pretty good for most games but I also like SGM
