Apologies if such thread already exists, but search did not reveal one either here or general music.

Anyway, here are my top 5 game soundtracks of all time.

1) Katamari Damachii who could not love this one? Imaginative, inventive and fun!

2) Wild Arms 3 I still whistle the theme tune now and then. Bliss!

3) Final Fantasy 7 for nostalgic reasons more than anything else, but some of the tunes were damn catchy.

4) Silent Hill 4 Excellent moody pieces, well fitting the series, which is my favorite when it comes to survival horror.

5) Ultima IV I will never forget the tunes, they will always be with me.

The Final Fantasy IX soundtrack.

Oh god, yes !

Don't know if I can make a top 5. I loved :

- FF6 : Simply the best soundtrack of the whole saga for me... minus a few songs (nothing is really perfect).

- FF9 : As a whole, it's good. And that's why I love it. It's not 3 or 4 powerful songs for an average/not that good score... it's a generally pretty good score for a generally good and enchanting game. I always have good feelings while playing the game and/or listening to the ost.

- Okami : I don't know how to explain this... but Okami and its music just go perfectly together. I can't even say a single bad thing about it. Crazy.

- Super Mario : I just always loved Mario's tunes. They're so pretty and cheerful. Make them orchestrated and it's pretty obvious that it's actually good quality music.

- The Legend of Zelda : Same thing I guess. I think Zelda's music is classic. And I'm not even a big fan of Zelda.

- Shenmue : I wish I could play those games. but I listened to the score and... Wow... It's as high quality as some John Williams or Joe Hisashi music.

- Chrono Cross : CC's score is just my favorite from Mitsuda's video game works. Chrono Trigger is also good, classic even... but I don't know, I think I just like CC's music more (but played together, it's even better).

- Silent Hill 2 : Pretty atmospheric as a whole... it's just perfect for this game (creepy/strange and touching/sad). As for Theme of Laura, Promise, even the music box song... well, they're just awesome.

- Shadow Hearts : I love SH2's music as well... but I think SH1's music was so much richer. I think Yo....aka Hirota style is pretty unique... and well... Yasunori Mitsuda worked with him too for those games. I can't find anything like SH's score, really.

- Crystal Chronicles : I love the celtic style. And Kazenone.

- MGS series : I don't like all the music in the soundtracks... but there ARE powerful main songs in it. "The Best is yet to Come", "Calling to the Night", "Here's to You", "Way to Fall", "Snake Eater"... And of course, Harry Gregson-Williams composed music for it.

- Grim Fandango : a mix of an orchestral score, South American folk music, jazz, swing and big band sounds... How awesome is that ? And it fits the game SO WELL.

- Machinarium : It's just nice as a whole. It's very atmospheric.

- Shadow of the Colossus : Awesome orchestrated music... what can I say ?

- KH1/2 : Shimomura's music is very good. I love how some sounded very Disney. But it's too bad all the songs weren't orchestrated. Shimomura's work really shines when orchestrated. Also, I think she should have done more "Disney" songs for the games... since some parts of the games reproduce scenes from the movies... but without any music, I felt like the scenes were incomplete.

- Panzer Dragoon : Never played this one (I should) but the music is good.

- Xenosaga 1 : Yeah, I LOVE Xenogears but I don't think Mitsuda composed the best soundtrack ever for it *it's still good and unique*. However, what he did with Xenosaga 1 was mindblowing and a bit different than his usual style. It sounded like an epic sci-fi/space opera movie score. The only thing that bothered me : why so little tracks ? I wanted more.

- Xenosaga 3 : Well, Yuki Kajiura did something good there... and most of the songs were used wisely in the game (at last). Also, Hosoe didn't make any songs, Kajiura was all alone and... frankly, what a blessing. Hosoe music was BAD in Episode 2. Besides, I think Kajiura's music was fitting for Xenosaga... not that Mitsuda's wasn't of course, but I loved what Kajiura added to the atmosphere.

- Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King : Not a lot of tracks... and that's the reason why the music could get annoying (come on, the game is pretty long). But in fact, the music is high quality. I listen to it from time to time.
