I personally can't get enough of the FF12 main theme:

also in rather sharp contrast the max payne title song:

Not OST, but it's one of the best arrangements I've heard on any VGM track.

http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR01447/
Arrangement on GW Theme and WoW's Stormwind

Yeah, I tend to prefer community arrangements (of which I have a lot) to the original soundtracks.

I don't know the song's names, so it's basically the games they're in:

On RPGs(where most of the good songs are IMO):

Morrowind main theme;
Many Final Fantasy songs, especially those in FF VIII;
Fable OST;
Chrono Trigger/Cross has a few jewels;
Guild Wars: pre-searing soundtrack, very relaxing;

Non-RPGS:

Metal Gear Solid 2 and 4;
Max Payne main theme;
Okami OST;


There's a lot more of songs I really like, but can't quite remember atm.

EDIT: 2 more games people mentioned below and I couldn't leave outside the list: Halo Combat Evolved and Zelda's theme!

Most Nintendo games have very good music, like the Zelda games or Mario and Kirby et cetera.

Jeremy Soule is a fantastic composer, as is Rika Muranaka. Oh and whoever made the songs for the Wario Ware games, is my hero. :D

For those who played MA2, just needed to give concept to the song.


For those who did not play MA2, can't put song to picture, sorry.

I've always enjoyed the Gears of War music. I have both soundtracks from the Gears series.

So true. I usually fell asleep as a child with my Gameboy next to my ear: playing Kirby's dreamland (the whole soundtrack was so cute) and SuperMarioland 2: six golden coins.

Kirby's dreamland:
SuperMarioland 2: six golden coins:

And WoW had some magnificent soundtracks, even made a nelf especially to relax in temple of the moon (the first version) and the nelf starter zone. Some songs have nice soprano's in it too. One of the best things in WoW is the soundtrack.

Wow's shaping of the world:

Megaman 2 Dr. Wily Stage is my all time favorite.
Most of the Megaman Songs in Megaman 2 are even more awesome when replayed by the Neskimos

Some of these songs I like for the actual music, and some I just like for the nostalgia.

I have two songs and one OST that I am particularly fond of right now.

Wild ARMs 2 Intro


Zone Of The Enders - Kiss Me Sunlights


Also, on a whole, I am really digging the Civilization 4 OST. So many great musical pieces in there.

Man this is tough because there are so many really good songs you find lurking in games.

Ridley's theme from Super Metroid:

Ragna's theme from Blazblue (honestly ALL this music in this game is great but this is a favorite):
