I was hoping this would get brought up Smile

Most of the songs Grant Kirkhope are good, but this one for me sticks out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=13sei6ykpzA

@tad & wilco
Marty was amazing in Halo and Destiny , dunno why he was weeded out, i have low hopes
for Destiny2 and Halo5 music, his music was something else.
Shenmue was killer, Yuzo koshiro delivered again after Streets of Rage in 3D setting with orchestra.

Yeah, composers leaving is not a good lot of times, like Jesper Kyp leaving the Assassins Creed franchise or when Jack Wall left Mass Effect. Both composers that left and great mark in the respective games.

Had no idea the Danganronpahas those games in his past. Cool stuff.

2 other soundtracks:

Transistor (game was disappointing fir me, but like Bastion it had some a very good soundtrack)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ed59hQFwA6Q  - Link to the Past (although most Zelda games will do)

Slightly newer soundtracks

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tAKi13Gb7es&list=PL3CBDC974B0BA26D3  - Metal Gear SOlid

Max Payne 3 had a great soundtrack, but “Tears” by Health is by far my favorite. I had goosebumps all through that airport scene. So good. And speaking of music blending perfectly with the game, the Mexico arrival scene in Red Dead Redemption was just beautiful. Don’t watch it if you’re yet to play RDR, it’ll spoil the surprise.

I’ve always been a huge fan of the “Fall from Grace Theme” from Planescape Torment by Mark Morgan. It captures perfectly the melancholic, mysterious mood of the game.

The Machinarium OST by Tomas Dvorak is amazing. He has also done some lovely tracks as Floex.

Kirill Pokrovsky (who sadly passed away recently) composed a very impressive soundtrack for Divine Divinity. I still listen to it regularly.
