GTA:San andreas (just as an incidental example) shipped its ingame radio
stations as 32KHz vorbis.

Game companies often downsample stuff because they know it'll get mixed
with other sounds anyway, and thus, the loss in quality won't be noticed
as easily. Lets them save on space, and hawk a separate sound track cd
for more money.
