This is in reverse order because posting stuff in this new editor is a real chore. Enjoy the list regardless. If you think other songs should be up here, speak up. Maybe something from Deus Ex?

I have a handicap that makes me just.. not notice video game music. I have been playing games since I could remember, but I never ever pay attention to the music and look it up, to me it's just music that fits the experience, nothing more. 
 
So i'll go with the portal opera. Listening to the first Bastion song, sounds good.

There is an incredible lack of the LA Noire theme song in here. (Both of the videos in this post should be played at the same time for maximum effect).

@natetodamax: WOW! That is a little unfair though. Rainy Mood makes everything amazing.

You're missing out then! A good soundtrack goes a long way in making a game even more special.

Bastion is a given, but that SF song is really doing it for me right now!

Haha, what's unfair about it? RainyMood merely enhances the atmosphere, tone, and mood of the song for a more memorable listening experience. It's pretty great by itself.

@Kyreo: Reptiles theme is fucking fantastic!

I can appreciate what he is saying though. I mean, I played LA Noire, but didn't give the theme song a second thought. It was more to set the mood. I really appreciate songs mostly when they stick out and make me say "Fuck, this songs is so good it almost doesn't belong here."

Deus Ex theme song...Love it!!!!!

#11 Posted by Kyreo (4600 posts) -

@Djstyles92: It's not IN-game, but it was on the official OST they released but despite this fact, it is amazing. Second on this list.

Whaaaaaat, really? When I first got LA Noire, despite how amazingly excited I was to play it, I literally sat at the main menu and listening to the entire 9 minute theme song twice. I think it's an astounding piece of music.

I think maybe I had been jaded by the song from all the trailers I watched with same sounding stuff in them.

#14 Posted by Animasta (14712 posts) -

hmm...

probably some from ghost trick (can't pick a specific track atm)

#15 Posted by Enigma777 (6078 posts) -

You totally need to add the Deus Ex theme.

#16 Posted by Kyreo (4600 posts) -

@Laketown: Man that Deus Ex song is amazing.

your right the la noire ost is great and omg the rainymood really helped make the song even more moody and way better.

#19 Posted by iBePeRFeCT (396 posts) -

Glad to see Deus Ex getting some love because I thought the soundtrack to the whole game was pretty amazing all in all.

  Don't forget Ghost Trick :(

Might as well post music for games that weren't released in 2011, but still were, somehow:

Those were 2011 releases. Look 'em up.
#24 Posted by Djstyles92 (953 posts) -
@Kyreo: oh no I knew that!  I love that song I've had it on my ipod since they released it
#25 Posted by Kyreo (4600 posts) -

@Video_Game_King: yer story checks out, FOR NOW!

#26 Posted by NTM (7483 posts) -

As disappointing as the game may be, I think the soundtrack, or most of the songs, in Crysis 2 are fantastic, and I also really enjoy the Outland sountrack.

#27 Posted by Turambar (6810 posts) -

Wait, so they just have to be themes from a game released in 2011 right?

#28 Posted by me3639 (1793 posts) -

Nothing from Shadows of the damned?

#29 Posted by Dany (7887 posts) -
#30 Posted by YetiAntics (1491 posts) -

Sure the game is a mixed bag, but it's still a fun theme song.

Others have already been posted, Like Bastion and Portal 2.

If music from trailers for games in 2011 count, then that Assassin's Creed: Revelations CGI trailer from E3 takes the cake for me.

I don't think anything this year will beat Zia's Song for me, that moment made me remember why I like video games.

#34 Posted by Vonocourt (2141 posts) -

Rest of the game's soundtrack is more sparse, but everytime I booted the game up this got me excited for the tedium that awaited.

#35 Posted by CaptainTightPants (2834 posts) -

As long as Bastion is mentioned in here, I am all good. The music in that game was amazing. 
 Apart from the songs with lyrics in Bastion, I really enjoyed this song.  (Especially around the 1:40 mark and on)
  

  
 
Then there is Catherine, this song is such a joy to listen to. I seriously just stayed at the bar in that game to listen to that song over and over.

One of my favorites so far that is not Portal related.

Oh right, this one too.

For me The Witcher 2 soundtrack has some great songs 
  

    
  And the Deus Ex theme definitely deserves to be on the list as well.

@Kyreo: THANK YOU.

I was literally just now thinking about how the age of memorable game music has passed. I must say as a huge fan of Bastion: that soundtrack is ridiculously good.

Also I wonder. Did GB GOTY picks include best game music?

#40 Posted by Brodehouse (10077 posts) -

@me3639: I got a different choice.

Deus Ex: HR music is brilliant. So epic!
#42 Edited by Mr_Skeleton (5146 posts) -

Most underrated soundtrack of the year.



#43 Posted by GunstarRed (5305 posts) -

Want you gone at the end of Portal 2 is arguably better than Still alive.... Badonkadonk from ms splosion man is fun also.

I really reminds me of Batman Begins...
#46 Edited by kerse (2117 posts) -

Short but I really liked this one from Alice.

That La Noire main theme is amazing and pretty much all the music in Bastion is great, but I think my favorite so far is Its a Golden Show from Catherine.

i can't get this fucking song out of my head 
 
A visage of power-walking dwarves haunts my nightmares.
#48 Posted by Vexxan (4623 posts) -

Sure is some great music in here.

#49 Posted by Kyreo (4600 posts) -

@Sjupp: last year they did a best Song of the year. I imagine they will do the same. I also imagine something from Bastion will be winning this years category for best song.

#50 Posted by Animasta (14712 posts) -

TOTALLY FORGOT CATHERINE:
