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.

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."

@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.

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

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

@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.
