Which video games do you believe have the best overall soundtrack?

Personally, my favorite game soundtrack (as a whole) would have to be from the game Bastion.

Here's a link to one of the wonderful songs from the game.

So what are some of you favorite game soundtracks (as a whole)?

The first Megaman games had good soundtracks.

Zelda is definitely one of many series with great music, along with Final Fantasy.

Personally, I enjoy listening to Super Smash Bros. music as it brings back nostalgia for me.

I like seeing a lot of Fallout here . Definitely had some amazing songs on the amazing Pip-Boy. I choose Sonic Adventure 2 though. Songs in that game were so epic and fit the mood of the levels really well in my opinion.

Aquaria
Cave Story

By far the two best game soundtracks ever created in my opinion.
Zelda games are an obvious choice imo, and these games are just so good in every aspect, it just adds to their wow factor that they have ridiculously good music.

Any game from the SSB, Zelda or Metroid series. Nintendo spends more time on audio than any other developer I've seen.

I personally didn't like Oblivion's tunes that much. TES as a whole has a few good songs but mostly nothing special.

I'd like to mention Kirby and the Crystal Shards 64. Great soundtrack. The invincibility theme rocks so hard.

The Metal Gear series of course has a wonderful soundtrack. If I had to pick one game from it, I'd cheat and say Guns of the Patriots, because it has most of the old music. Calling to the Night and Snake Eater are particularly good.

Delete my last post. That quote button has been taboo for me lately.

Wow, thanks for reminding me. This game was my freaking childhood. It had enough variety to keep me entertained and the soundtrack wasn't overflowing with background noise - it was fairly simple.

This i hole-heatedly agree with. Metal Gear has a beautiful soundtrack, as well as Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Listening to Icarus on the soundtrack just set'sup the entire fell of the game. Also Halo has an amazing soundtrack that just set's the mood on so many occasions over so many of it's games.

I would have to say that Advanced wars has some of the best character theme song music out there. At least it does through the first three games. The music fits with the characters personalities and also help to enrich them.

Dark Souls may not have many tracks, but the few that it has are beautiful.

OST for the final boss.

Another boss fight OST.

This fight is pretty sad, but the song is great.
