    Default Top Five Video Game soundtracks.

    Yes, I'm well aware that this isn't going to be easy, but try to come up with your absolute five favorite OSTs from the video game genre.

    I cannot take exactly 5. Only five levels based on several franchises that have certain fantastic soundtracks and the mentioned ones are pretty much equal therefore also fitting to be on that level.
    I'm sorry my man, I'm going to be the hypothetical crazy gunman who is going to force you to choose between your children. I need five individual games, not series.

    Just off the top of my head:

    - Nier
    - Undertale
    - Dishonored
    - To The Moon
    - Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door

    Can't rank them numerically, they're all too good. And I'll give an honorable mention to Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, because that game wouldn't be the same without its silly, stupid, gloriously over-the-top soundtrack.

    Okay, I deleted the post and won't answer again. I won't choose between my children.

    5. Final Fantasy VII - What an incredible OST. It hits the different beats of the plot exceedingly well and just draws you in. And it's extremely recognizable.

    4. Little Busters! - It has a great mix of light-hearted and emotional tracks and the vocal tracks are actually all pretty damn good. The title screen theme is haunting, the character themes are all wonderfully fitting and, man, the soundtrack is just so nostalgic to listen to!

    3. Final Fantasy VIII - My favorite Final Fantasy soundtrack. This game nails the general ambience, battle, mood, dungeon and villain themes so well. Annnnnd I'm a big fan of organ/church/witch-themed soundtracks, too

    2. Touhou - This series just has crazy good soundtracks, though since the individual games only have a handful of tracks each I find it kind of justified to consider them one. But even if you disagree, pretty much any single game's soundtrack would be good enough to end up on this list, albeit not at #2. My favorite... is probably Subterranean Animism, but not by much.

    1. Umineko no Naku Koro ni - Hahahahahaha. Destroying the competition as per usual. I handpick all single tracks from any OST I like well enough to want to listen to on a regular basis. With Umineko I ended up with 90 tracks. I listen to it every day even now years after finishing the game. It's a completely uncontested #1 spot for me.

    Honorable Mentions: Rewrite, G-senjou no Maou, Undertale, CLANNAD, Rose Guns Days, any of the other Final Fantasy games

    2. Chrono Trigger

    4. Mario Galaxy 1
    5. Crystal Bearers

    Honorable mentions: F Zero GX, Majora's Mask, Xenoblade Chronicles and Mario Galaxy 2.

    I know Final Fantasy IX is at the top for me, but after that I'm not sure.
