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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
