I am stuck on Dustforce's soundtrack.

@cannonballBAM: That is one hell of a Soundtrack.. But my vote will always be Bastion

It's shatter....duh!!

Mega Man 2

#7 Posted by JohnnyAutoFire (353 posts) -

My vote goes to Maniac Mansion on the NES.

#8 Posted by MetalGearGeorge (218 posts) -

The ost's from Guilty Gear and Blazblue are definitely my favorites.

#9 Edited by CatsAkimbo (616 posts) -

Wipeout XL (or most any Wipeout soundtrack). I had the OST on a CD that I listened to over and over. Strangely enough, I remember listening to it when I got Pokemon Stadium, and the music synced eerily well.

Probably a tie between Chrono Trigger and Persona 3/4 for me. Never get tired of them.

Gonna have to betray my portrait and throw in for Demon's Souls. If only because these drums are the single best thing in the world:

It's funny. Lordran is a much more organically connected region, with a better sense of place, but Boletaria takes the cake for consistency and quality of its music. Everything is Baroque, depressing, haunting, and, in a way, beautiful. Dark Souls was a bit too all over the place.

@cannonballBAM: I could never in a millions years pick out a single soundtrack but Dustforce's pretty goddamn good.

#16 Edited by Tru3_Blu3 (3203 posts) -

Too Human's soundtrack is very under appreciated.

#17 Edited by ciscoidiot (35 posts) -

Donkey Kong Country 2 and Mega Man X, absolutely love them...

#18 Posted by That1BlackGuy (217 posts) -

I don't pick bests but I do love the hell out of Nier's soundtrack.

#19 Posted by WickedCobra03 (2103 posts) -

Halo 3: ODST. Once I heard the soundtrack, it kicked out my previous favorite of Final Fantasy VIII.

Halo 3 ODST OST

Honerable Mentions: Metal Gear Solid 3, Metal Gear Solid 4, Half Life 2, Halo:CE, Final Fantasy VIII, Mass Effect, Super Metroid, Metroid Prime, Sonic the Hedgehog 2.

#20 Posted by Hizang (8533 posts) -

Metal Gear Solid 4 has so many good pieces, there version of Enclosure is great.

#21 Posted by p00rdevil (158 posts) -

Age of Conan has the best music soundtrack I have ever enjoyed. There are others I have listened to that are good, but AoC tops them all!

#22 Posted by Guided_By_Tigers (8061 posts) -

In b4 VGK posts his soundtracks list.

And I would probably go with Donkey Kong Country 2

The scary thing is that I was going to do just that.

Snafu and the song "Dragon God" from Crono Cross

#27 Posted by siaynoq (86 posts) -

I think I've listened to the original Fallout soundtrack more than any other game soundtrack. It's amazing and there's nothing quite like it.

I also love a lot of Wing Commander music.

#28 Posted by Elyk247 (366 posts) -

Final Fantasy IV and Killer Instinct.

I know that's why I posted that.....you post that list in every thread that talks about "best soundtracks". :P

Yep, Nier really knows how to do music. It's the only game soundtrack where the mere listening of a few specific songs makes me sad for the rest of the day.

The electronic music lover in me says to say Shatter, but really...

#36 Posted by emem (1965 posts) -

My favourite soundtrack is still from Shadow of the Colossus.

#37 Posted by Dezztroy (787 posts) -

For some recent examples: Frozen Synapse, Sleeping Dogs and Guild Wars 2.
 
It's impossible to pick out a single best.

#38 Posted by Zuldim (288 posts) -

Wind Waker, no question. Every single track is great, it's totally different from the soundtracks found on other games, and it's a large part of why I love the game so much.

#39 Posted by Masakari (72 posts) -

Halo 3 OST is my personal favorite.

#40 Posted by cannonballBAM (601 posts) -

@Zuldim: word.

@Vexxan: Yeah, I can listen to it over and over. I cant express how great it really is to anyone who hasnt heard it before.

@Soapy86: daft punk :)

#41 Posted by david3cm (635 posts) -

Max Payne 3

#42 Posted by JasonR86 (9653 posts) -

Flower, Beyond Good and Evil, and Dune all had really good sountracks. The Wipeout games all had good soundtracks too.

#43 Posted by Clonedzero (4200 posts) -

the Halo games have pretty amazing soundtracks. i often leave the game on the main menu for a bit just to listen

Tommy Tallarico did a good job with Maximo Ghosts to Glory. Is Tommy still working in the industry? He use to come by the IGN boards and post now and then. It was fun having someone in the gaming industry starting threads!

#45 Posted by BBAlpert (1431 posts) -

Honorable mention at the very least goes to Deadly Premonition.

Well not really, but sorta? He tours the world heading the Video Games Live concert. I doubt he's done any new game music since that took off back in '07 or so.

If you haven't heard of the show, it's pretty incredible. Here's some videos from the bluray they released:

As for picking a best score, I don't think it's possible. One of the great things about game music is so many other styles fit under it. There are orchestral pieces ranging from epic, to tragic as well as j-pop, rock, chiptunes from the early consoles, jazz, and a number of others. I just don't think one "album" can be singled as the best. It's too varied a genre.

ti has good stuff, but half of it was kinda garbage

I have always liked the original Donkey Kong soundtrack, but the Skyrim soundtrack is really close to that.

Also, the Fez soundtrack is very good.

Skyrim. Jeremy Soule perfected the work he's been doing on elder Scroll games.
