  • The whole of Metro Exodus' soundtrack is immaculate, IMO.

  • Borderlands 3 has amazing soundtrack.

    My favorite song is:

    But everything else is great too:

  • Ace Combat 7 has lots of great tracks. It works better for me personally when I'm playing the game instead of listening it on it's own, but nonetheless it's still a great OST overall.

    River City Girls' music is very entertaining. I've only got through the first two bosses, and the music so far has been great.

    I don't remember much of Days Gone's music, but this one really sticks out.

    I wish I played more new games this year, those 3 games above are like the only ones I can remember having enjoyed the music.



  • @shoulderguy See you've already got Three Houses music covered, but wow I didn't expect to like the Yooka Laylee track as much as I do. That definitely slipped past me. Probably my favorite thing in this topic.

    @TokyoSlim Select one to stand out like @ffff0 did, otherwise that's not really this topic. Not about to listen to the whole Soundtrack.

    @bam541 Despite some of that generic "epic"ness, I can definitely tell from what you posted how good that Ace Combat music is. River City Girls I think you covered the best track. Honestly, the soundtrack falls into the problem of lots of samey songs, so they get garbled together after awhile.

    One of those soundtracks that blends together quite a bit when taken away from the game, but I think this track stands out even without the moments it is made to accompany.

    Bit of a bonus entry, because this song only appears in these commercials for the game, even though it is way better than any of the music in the actual game and should've been used as the credits theme. Legitimately my favorite song of the year.

    Game itself had a bunch of problems limiting it from taking off like the original, but some of the music added, especially for the 3D World style, is just top notch.

    There's multiple songs I could've picked for this game. Ended up going with something weird for the weird fun little underdog of a game it is. Really wish this one had gotten more attention given how hard it tried to attract new players.

    No explanation needed.

    I'm among the list of people who grew up with Banjo Kazooie on the N64 and still hold it in extremely high regard with the realm of 3D Platformers. Loved the music growing up too, and I got super excited when I saw the track list of remixes for the Smash induction of the classic duo. The SNK music added since with the Terry update has probably overshadowed those now for most, but I'm still jammin' to them.

    It doesn't have alot of music, but what it has absolutely slaps.

    Of course I couldn't end off without some jolly Pokemon. Love how this track starts with a sound fresh to the series, then goes full Pokemon, then kind of blends the two together. Became something I genuinely got excited to hear again every time I had reason to return to the town it resides in, and while the rest of the game does have some other interesting tracks, nothing ever topped Turffield's song for me.



  • This and also all of the new Banjo Kazooie Remixes by Grant Kirkhope for Smash bros

    The demanding tone of your "request" bugs me, so no, I don't think I will. If you think I'm off-topic flag my post for moderation.

    Not about to listen to the whole Soundtrack.

    Then dont! I don't care. Your Loss.



  • There's probably a lot. For now I'll have to submit just this one.
