    Here's the full soundtrack...


    But my favorite one is the bonus Federation track, which isn't even in-game...

    Usually Sonic the Hedgehog has some Killer Tracks. Like, Fore example:
    What I'm Made of - Sonic Heroes
    I am... All of Me - Shadow the Hedgehog
    City Escape - Sonic Adventure 2
    Stardust Speedway (Bad Future) - Sonic CD
    Open Your Heart - Sonic Adventure

    There's also some other Gems from other games, such as:
    Zero Hour - Wolfenstein 3D
    Funk That - Wolfenstein 3D
    Boom Boom [Remix] - Wolfenstein: The New Order
    I sawed the Demons - Doom (1996)
    At Doom's Gate - Doom (1996)
    Kitchen Ace - Doom (1996)

    A great soundtrack (or, indeed, great presentation overall) will not save a bad game, but it can elevate a good game to a great one perhaps more than any singular element. Here are some of my favorite songs from soundtracks that did just that.

    Nuclear Throne - Campfire
    Nuclear Throne - Nuclear Throne (Final Boss Theme)
    Rayman Origins - Sea of Serendipity
    Fallout: New Vegas - Main Theme
    Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number - Divide

    Though this is a great game on its own merits, it would be remiss of me not to mention to mention the greatest game OST of all time

    Didn't see journey mentioned, but I also did want to open the embedded video spoilers.
    Journey OST

    New fav of mine:
    Crypt of the Necrodancer OST (something like 4 additional remixes of the original hour+ worth of audio)
    Select song:
    Heart of the Crypt (Remix by A_Rival)

    In memoriam of the original Splatoon and its soundtrack, here are my favorite tracks that we'll never get to hear again:
    • "Splattack", my favorite of the multiplayer tracks, which I consider the unofficial main theme of the game.
    • "Kraken Up", the runner-up
    • "City of Color", which the Squid Sisters performed during Splatfest
    • "Ink Me Up", the song that plays in matches during Splatfest
    I've been digging on the Shovel Knight soundtrack lately as well:
    • The ever-predictable "Strike the Earth!", which again I (and probably many others) would consider the unofficial main theme.
    • "La Danse Macabre", the theme from Specter Knight's stage
    • "High Above the Land", the theme from Propeller Knight's stage. Gives me straight-up goosebumps. Must be pretty popular, because its remix got to be the first track on the official remix album.
    And finally, let's not forget my favorite piece from BioShock's score, Cohen's Scherzo #7. The guy even posted the sheet music so you can play along at home!

    Barely anybody knows this game even exists, but it has good music.

    Daggerfall.

    An often overlooked Elder Scrolls game by the mainstream that was made during a time where MIDI files were used more than CD-audio, the music for both Daggerfall and Arena is excellent. Being ahead of it's time compared to other games in the past, it's a damn shame there will never be another Elder Scrolls game that comes close to the depth of Daggerfall (Except Arena that has really bad gameplay).

    Main Theme (Never actually used in the official game save for a demo)

    Sunny Day (My personal favorite and most nostalgic)

    Overcast (the Adlib version is my personal favorite but this one is also fine)

    Dungeon Theme #3 (Oddly Upbeat compared to the other dungeon tracks)

    Classic Dungeon Theme from Arena (Also plays in Daggerfall if you have an SB16 but still one of the most memorable)
