My top 2 video game series also have my favorite OSTs (have to go across the entire series in both cases because ALL game's soundtracks are great)

But for real, I'm obsessed with Castlevania, the music is great in all of them but I'll go with the original

Seems to be a shortage of Nintendo in here, aside from Zelda. Let me remedy that...

Tekken 3 might be my all-time favourite when it comes to OST's. So many now already iconic-sounding tracks. Especially Law and King's themes are my favourites, also Julia's, but they all have their moments. And I'm talking about the Arranged OST if you go searching for them, not the arcade versions. PS1!

Megaman 3 - easily my favorite NES game OST of all time. That Snakeman and Shadowman beat is just too sick not to get down to.
Megaman Legends 1-2 - The Legends series has some really great music and I'm not just talking about the cheery Apple Market theme or the Flutter theme but those dungeon themes are also really good.
Recently I've been listen to this though.
Jinguji Saburo Kind of Blue
Fantastic jazz music from the game Detective Saburou Jinguji 9, this OST is really great for relaxing with a chilled glass of Whiskey after a long day of editing and animating (or whatever you do work-wise)

So many OST, couldn't read thru them all but Ive always been a big fan of the Street Fighter OST. Mainly from memory SF2, SF 3 3rd strike and im so loving the SF5 sound track, such good songs that have stuck with me through out my life.

Xenogears. This was the first game ost I ever bought. Yasunori Mitsuda might be more known for Chrono Trigger, but this is my personal favourite.
Otherwise, the expected answer is any real Final Fantasy ost, but it's the usual answer for a good reason. Love it all. Especially these two.
Also honorable mentions for

@Zatheus I really need to dig into the later MM OSTs at some point. There's some good stuff in there!

Persona 4 has such a catchy OST. Nier's has forever been stuck in my mind since I first heard it.
Mario Galaxy's is ghibli-esque. Gravity Rush's brings the jolly vibes.
I'll forever love Final Fantasy 6, 7 and 9's too.

I think the Final Fantasy series as a whole has the best music in the industry, but if we are going by single games then Chrono Cross's soundtrack is pure genius.

All you youngsters and your fancy shmancy new music! Back in my day, video game music was just a bunch of Bleeps and Bloops and we loved it! (I kid!)
Here are a few of my personal favorites.
- Streets of Rage - Stage 8
- Panzer Dragoon Saga - Sora Mi Areru Ec Sancitu
- The Neverhood - Homina Homina
- Phantasy Star III - Intro
- Samurai Shodown 6 - Imperial Feast
Those are just a smattering and I feel are great examples of a huge variety of styles.
