Best Video Game Soundtracks

I apologize if this is in the wrong place or has been done before.

My personal favorites are

Bastion
&
Portal

I went ahead and got the physical copy of Bastion's soundtrack since I can't get a physical copy of the game. It has awesome artwork, I decided not to get a signed copy because I didn't want to cover the art. Very cool little side note Darren Korb sent me a personal email thanking me for my order. I replied and told him how much I loved the game and the soundtrack, and he responded again thanking me. Just thought it was really cool how he was actually involved in the CD sales.

Anyways does anyone else have any favorite game soundtracks?

I've always enjoyed the original Halo trilogies soundtrack. Marty O'Donnel did a spectacular job with the music. The Dynasty Warriors games, especially the fourth one, usually have some awesome BGM (Eve especially. Great music to play when your army is getting totally screwed).

Dynasty Warriors 4 had a pretty amazing soundtrack. I'm not gonna list all the ones I like though...would be a rather large post. But DW4 comes to mind first.

most of the guys here will post recent game's soundtrack, but Silent Hill 2, which was made over 10 years ago is by far the best soundtrack imo!

I'll never see what people love so much about Halo's soundtracks. I find it to be rather generic sounding...a few decent tracks in Halo CE but it's like they just kept reusing that every game.

Why do I get the feeling that most of you are just listing your favorite games and not your favorite soundtracks? Do you listen to the music while not playing the game? Just curious is all...

Anyways, my all time favorite is: Katamari Damacy

(I'd dare anyone to top that)

A close second is Minecraft. Sooooo relaxing.

And I do enjoy listening to the soundtracks from some of the later Zelda and Final Fantasy titles (think N64 and PS2+ games), if only for nostalgic reasons.

In case you didn't know about this... Three discs worth of free downloads. Scroll all the way to the bottom of the page to download them all at once instead of individually.

...Mirror's Edge, and oddly enough the only one you couldn't remember is the only one on the list with good music.

Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn, followed by Dark Souls.

(Armored Prayer from Gears of War 2 is my top played track though, I love it.)

Halo 2 was 10x better than CE, imo.

Max Payne 3 had a solid soundtrack as well.

The best video game soundtrack ever is SONIC R. Totally amazing soundtrack.

Close behind it would be the soundtrack to Metropolis Street Racer.

Bayonetta also has some amazing tracks in it.

Pretty much anything from Fallout 3's GNR

The ambient music in Minecraft, and the music discs in the game by C418

Virtually all the Metroid music.

Oh, and the start screen music from Crysis 3 which reminds me of Metroid Prime's theme music.

Killzone series
Uncharted series
Halo series (but especially 4)
Mass Effect 3
Minecraft is good in-game but not for just general listening
Modern Warfare 2 and 3
Dead Space series
Main theme of Crysis 2
The original Sonic games

Probably more but those are the ones that stick out.
