Not sure if there is a thready like this, but I searched and there doesn't seem to be. What are you favorite video game soundtracks?

I own most of the official Konami x Mondo releases of Castlevania on Vinyl (and yes I know how rediculous that is from an audiophile's standpoint), so I guess Castlevania is my favorite.

I really just came here to agree with you that Xenogears has an amazing soundtrack though.


Ragnarok Online, hands down

Aside from MMOs, i really like these :
- TLoZ : Majora's Mask
- Resonance of Fate / End of Eternity
- Boktai (serie in general)
- Resident Evil 3
- Tales of Graces f

There's a few other game OSTs i like, but these stands out imo


Xenoblade Chronicles
Baten Kaitos
Star Ocean
A Link to the Past

First few that come to my mind

Destiny and it's sequel Destiny 2


Anything Pokémon, Super Mario (especially Galaxy 1/2), and many things Sonic.
Special mention to Pocket Card Jockey, just because no one knows about it but it's still an excellent game with an excellent score. Written by the same composer as many of the Pokémon games (Go Ichinose).

Edit: Seconding Pokémon Mystery Dungeon.


Pokemon Mystery Dungeon deserves a mention in this thread!
YuGiOh Dungeon Dice Monsters has a few really nice tracks as well
Shatter's OST is so good, I'm not sure if I spent more time playing the game (I played it a lot in the past) or listening to the OST
Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World Video Game Soundtrack by Anamanaguchi is basically cheating but whatever :'3

EDIT: Checking my music folder Black Mesa (the fan remake) has a few really nice tracks as well

Definitely a tie between Xenoblade Chronicles and Persona 5, although shout-outs to the soundtracks of Kid Icarus Uprising and Super Paper Mario
