There are a lot of video games with great music, but not a lot of great video game soundtracks if that makes sense.

https://rateyourmusic.com/list/MalcolmXWing/video_game_music/

Not many soundtracks that you could listen to on their own from start to finish on top of my head.

Fallout 2, Grim Fandango, Unreal Tournament and the Tropico soundtracks

Bastion
Dishonored

What do you mean "no"?
I listen to these soundtracks regularly. In the case of Bastion, I even downloaded the soundtrack before playing the game.
>>
>>52899606
Quake
Medal of Honor: Allied Assault (dat orchestral writing)
Super Metroid and Warcraft II for retro
Metroid Prime for modern synth and production goodness
Oblivion and Morrowind had great scores, I'd happily listen to the Oblivion exploration soundtrack on its own.

Gen X on saints row 1. Could just be me, but I enjoyed most of the tracks on that station

I am saying that I couldn't picture myself listening to these outside of the game.

I love Amon Tobin's Chaos Theory OST and Jesper Kyd's Hitman and Freedom Fighters OSTs
Both can create amazing ambiance during hard missions

Sunrise is my favorite album though.

Easily better than both of the previous two games' soundtracks, and with a badass cover to boot.

>>52902313
The Bastion soundtrack is phenomenal. I played Transistor a few weeks ago and it was also phenomenal, Supergiant are on some next level shit.

Anyway, has anyone played Stubbs the Zombie? The game itself is pretty rad (though kind of clunky to control) but the soundtrack is the best thing about it IMO. It's all covers of songs from the 50s by indie bands.

i posted this in an earlier thread but

Nier, Chrono Cross, Shadow Hearts 1, Katamari Damacy, Kingdom Hearts, Okami, Darius Gaiden, DKC2, Shadow of the Colossus, Guilty Gear XX, Mighty Switch Force, Dustforce, Baten Kaitos, and most of the Touhou games
>>
Wow, no mention of Streets of Rage 2?

Also, Batman and Robin on Genesis had some good shit. Featuring Jesper Kyd before he went on to make movie-type video game music that appears in "1 hour epic music" playlists.

If you can look past the length, then be ready for a sprawling epic of 60's spy-action soundtrack pieces mixed with breakbeat and ambient techno, all while keeping emotion at the forefront. Perfection by vidya standards.

NIER's and Drakengard 3 OSTs are great

i also like the Drakengard 1 and 2 OSTs. D1 in particular is one of the most unusual and experimental game soundtracks in existence.

woah woah woah, that shit is only good in the context of slicing up cyborgs, outside of that, no. but in the game, it's immaculate

I say both of these because its the same group of rappers on both albums.


With a special song by Dilated People at the end of Anarchy Reigns
>>
The problem is autistic subhuman /v/ faggots overrate these to the point they consider these to be better than real music

No, you retard, you don't like the soundtrack, you like a few select songs from the soundtrack, that's not the same thing as saying the whole thing is good

Any album that only has two or three good songs out of twenty or thirty would be trash

anyways pretty much the whole nier soundtrack is good, so there
