    Agreed. That man can do no wrong.

    The Oblivion OST is one of my favorites.

    Apart from that, I enjoy most music from the 8 and 16 bit era. Castle of illusions soundtrack makes me especially nostalgic though - Like I can vividly remember going into the shop to buy it as a kid.

    The GOAT soundtrack.

    Damn, the nostalgia is killing me.

    Edit: Honourable mention

    Yet another game I have for the Ps4 that I bought and never ever played which given the almost universal glowing praise I really should get round to, particularlly given I have had to RMA my PC GPU so I cannot really play games on it at the moment. Ideal opportunity I guess.

    Currently listening to Radio Nintendo and the Ducktales moon level music just came on! Still sounds awesome now.

    The entire MGS soundtrack is utterly superb.

    The first few Hitman games with scores by Jesper Kyd were excellent too, some really interesting tracks in those that you wouldn't immediately associate with a game like Hitman but they were so well.

    Nier Automata, still best in years for me.

    Also Silent Hill soundtracks and NFS2 & 3.

    Yeah TLOU score is beautiful. Similar to The Witcher 3 it complements the scenery, atmosphere, locations perfectly. Wonderful game; probably my fav game of all time (remastered version).

    Just had a think and Gran Turismo 3 soundtrack was sublime for a racing game at the time.

    Some of the Souls series boss tracks are incredible. Persona 5 in general has a great style/sound.

    If Rockstar would do another GTA set in the Vice City era, but with modern gameplay, I would be so very happy. The whole soundtrack to that game was superb - whereas for the modern ones there's generally only one or two of the radio stations which are any good.

    Oh - although it ruins the immersion a little, they also need to have an option to have the music not reliant on being in a car.

    Arabian Knights on the Amiga.....never forgotten that catchy tune.

    Columns for Megadrive, still play this game even now. Love the music.

    SNES version of F-Zero, track one. Played it so many times the music is stuck.

    More recently the music in Ori and the Blind Forest captured the game brilliantly.

    I really liked the music in Hotline Miami 1 and 2, very fitting to the style of the game.

    Ultima 7 - The Black Gate. I went into this game, impulse purchase and never knowing anything about the Ultima universe, all I knew it according to the system specs my PC would run it! It was my first RPG game. The haunting music really set the mood for the (dark) plot - wow, drew me in!
    GTA Vice City
    Silent Hill
    Betrayal at Krondor (Midi)
