What are your favourite game OSTs, individually or as a whole of the game?
Mine would personally be, as in the entirety of the OST, in no particular order:

-Tales of Zestiria
-Kingdom Hearts
-Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
-Danganronpa V3
-Persona 3
-NieR:Automata
-DOOM

The trials definitely have the best soundtracks from the game:


Apparently there's no discussion for this, or at least I didn't find any

They're not talked about much, but I have a huge fondness for the Pokémon soundtracks, particularly Colosseum. I guess there's also Xenoblade Chronicles, Mirror's Edge, Little Big Planet and probably a ton more that I can't remember

Orcarina of Time is for sure my favorite OST from any video game. But there are a lot of great ones:
-Legend of Zelda: Orcarina of Time
-Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
-Chrono Trigger
-Persona 5
-FFXIII & FFXV (believe it or not)
-Super Mario Galaxy

Final Fantasy. I spent four figures on those soundtracks alone. (Many were limited editions with fancy packaging.) I also love the Metal Gear soundtracks.

Zelda is great too. Here's a phenomenal orchestral recording from The Legend Of Zelda 25th Anniversary Special Orchestra CD included with the limited edition of Skyward Sword on Wii.

Nier:Automata. In fact the opera boss track was the reason I got interested in the game lol



Honorable mention to Pokemon, especially the Mantine surf theme. It's so fun to listen to. And ofc Cynthia's battle theme is up there too.

Yes to all of this. Other ones I really love are Journey and Nier, they have so much great stuff.

Oh, and here's an awesome electronic soundtrack from an underrated (and challenging) PS1 game. I also imported this CD from Japan.



Might as well mention I adore the Killer Instinct soundtracks as well.

Need For Madness 1 & 2. One of the few games that features Italio Disco/Hi NRG as it's soundtrack.


Also Senran Kagura, a cool mix of pop, rock and traditional eastern styles.

Also Guilty Gear, SimCity 3000 and a few songs from FFXIV I guess.

That's the stuff I'd actually bother listening to outside of the game itself I suppose.

Umineko no Naku Koro ni has the most godlike soundtrack ever. I mean I've played a lot of western games that have good OSTs too but... nothing can match the sheer quantity of amazing tracks that the Umineko games has in store

I haven't played them, but have heard all the soundtracks and watched the anime. This is my favorite track. It's much better than the anime version.

There are plenty of great ones but yeah that's one of 'em. I can't really mention just one that stands out as my favourite of the bunch but maybe Dreamenddischarger, idk

The original MOTHER (EarthBound Beginnings) has a lot of mellow choral/instrumental music, probably prepared for marketing and commercials, considering the limitations of NES/Famicom hardware. One of my favorites:

Oh man. EarthBound is my second favorite video game!

I highly recommend Mother 3 (the sequel) as well. It was only released in Japan in 2006 on Game Boy Advance, but the English fan translation can be found online and played with an emulator. Since your profile says you live in Japan, I wouldn't be surprised if you played the original.

I would share some of my favorite tracks from those games, but there are so many.

Already played it! Fantastic game. I personally love the Love Theme and "It's over" which has bits of the love theme in it :)

I don't live in Japan, unfortunately. Just didn't want to give out my real location.

Definitely Umineko, Danganronpa, and Persona 3. Nothing will ever surpass those three.

Umineko's soundtrack is easily my favorite if VNs are counted as games. It has so many unique, memorable and catchy songs that I couldn't possibly choose a favorite. I don't have another soundtrack I listen to as often.
Xenoblade and persona 3 are some other ones I like a lot.

I can see you

In no specific order

Nier (the original one) - Grandma and Song of the Ancients give me gooseflesh every single time
Dragon Age: Origins - Same as above, just with I am the One (both versions) and Leliana's song
Drag-on Dragoon 3 - not as good as the two above but Black Song is still a thing of beauty and so damn emotional
Dark souls 3 - by far the best of all the souls series, the other ones had a many good tracks but they were very raw overall
Bloodborne - arguably the best soundtrack in any fromsoft game. I tend to swing between this and DKS3's, the latter being the one that holds the most emotional value but bloodborne's being as perfect as a soundtrack has ever been for a game. And Cleric Beast is still bloody incredible.
Mass effect - a couple of tracks in particular, the rest of the soundtrack was excellent for atmosphere but not to listen to outside of the game
Lost Odyssey - absolutely amazing, Nobuo Uematsu doing his thing again
The Elder Scrolls games, as a whole, always have an incredibly solid soundtrack. It gets "repetitive" so to speak, but it still remains excellent.
Undertale - well, what to say, I love this game's soundtrack a whole lot.
I am Setsuna - extremely peculiar as the entire soundtrack is basically piano-based, not something that can be found in many games (or pieces of media in general) and yet it's extremely good without being repetitive in the slightest

There are really far too many to name. Honourable mentions to the witcher games for certain, the Ryu ga Gotoku games (Kuze's theme in 0 is godly), the Uncharted series, Splinter Cell 3, Prince of Persia (the cel-shaded one), Ninja Gaiden Black (Alma theme makes me nervous to this day), the original Fable, Dragon's Dogma, Journey, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (yes, really), Deus Ex: HR, Alan Wake and Cave Story.

Has anyone else noticed that quite a few popular Nintendo OST's got taken off Youtube? It says Nintendo took them down for copyright but... Idk. Something about it just doesn't add up to me... I never thought they gave a shit :p Weird, hope they don't all come down.

Anyways I think my favorite is probably... Shadow of the Colossus. What a tight soundtrack :D

Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is probably one of the best Nintendo OSTs. There's a mix between sheer ambience and intensity. This is my favorite track.

Insert a neat little signature with an anime gif or something here.

32bit era?! I actually liked that 8bit trashy sound chip, oh, and some of the 16bit ost's were also nice, like, Shin Megami ost (for exp) although I've heard that they had an additional built-in sound chip on the cartridge itself for that trashy-bass boost.

Yeah like Super Metroid is pretty boss but come on it just doesn't get the bitches wet like Prime does.

But for 16 bit I love Super Mario RPG for its sheer magic. Uh, the popular one on familyguy's channel got removed, but this one is still up...

Way too many to list, but I will say, I have always been extremely impressed by the Undertale soundtrack; it's amazing one person can write so many fantastic yet different songs like seriously what a well versed soundtrack. I also very much loved the soundtrack in the Halo games growing up.

Every single soundtrack of the Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors series.
They combine Chinese and Japanese instruments with metal and it's the best combination to create music in existence.

Some of my absolute favorite tracks from DW are
DW7 - Entrusted Hope
DW4 - Straight Ahead
DW4 - Struggle for Existence
DW8 - Vanish
DW6 - Ultimate Pressure
DW5 - King of Sadness
DW8 - Solo
DW5 - Great Red Spirit
DW5 - Fate Corrodes Me
DW8 - Good Punch
DW8 - With Vengeance
DW8 - Seventh Journey
