    There's probably a thread already, lost somewhere in the EG search nexus. But let's have a new one anyway, because it's basically the new year, new things new new

    I was watching an Octopath Traveller speed run recently, and was reminded of how fucking great the music is in that game. Witness:



    So post your favourite things, from modern or old games, title themes, battle themes, map themes, whatever you like.

    Best curated soundtrack evar

    (Wipeout 2097/XL)

    Music I wouldn't listen to outside of the game, but fit the game perfectly

    (Super Hexagon)

    In terms of best original score, would find it overall hard to beat all the Halos.

    iD games are usually great, though. I liked the music in Q2, a lot. I would replay the level that started with the track Quad Machine, just for the music! And then of course, Doom 2016 was epic.

    For licensed music, loads of games have good music, especially now, but tracks like Firestarter in the original WipEout were just special. Also, for some reason I really liked the Destruction Derby music...

    Dying Light soundtrack is 80's synth horror perfect.

    EgttR is sublime.

    Gears 3 Bombastic and beautiful all at once.

    So many to pick from, but in terms of recent games, Celeste has a great soundtrack (and it's on Spotify as well).

    If anyone is into videogame music, there's a couple of podcasts I suggest. I listen to them a lot on the way to and from work.

    Retro VGM revival
    Super marcato bros
    Sound of play.

    Well worth a listen. Between them they cover all kinds of games.

    I know we're not even a page in yet, but how has nobody mentioned the Fez soundtrack? Its the best soundtrack, ever!

    Also, Octopath Traveller really does have a great soundtrack. It's arguably a better sounding game than it looks.

    You mean, aside from anything from Destiny 1/2? Or Chrono Cross? Or The Neverhood? Or Monkey Island 2? Or...

    Alright well, too much stuff. Have just one less known track chosen at random.

    Nier Automata has the best OST for me, closely followed by:
    FFX
    FFVII

    I got to play wipeout in a chillout tent at a helter skelter rave while off my face in the late 90's, was memorable.

    I've probably shared my favourite OST's several times already so I'll just go for something more recent. BL3's OST is surprisingly good, I think it doesn't quite make it to my all-time favourites but it's pretty close. BL2 had a great soundtrack too, but what BL3 does better is that it nails the the tone for frantic boss battles.

    So, so good, especially when more voices start singing the chorus, given what happens during the game at that point. Brings a lump to my throat!
