It depends on what I want to listen to. If I want to have background music, I go for Silent Hill 1 or Metal Gear Solid 1. If I want to actively listen, I usually go for the later Metal Gear games, especially MGS3, or the Earthbound soundtrack.
I'm also going to be that one indie asshole everyone hates and say Night In The Woods has my current favorite OST.
...And also the Undertale guy everyone hates. I own the Undertale OST on CD. Whatever, I'm not going to let the terrible fanbase ruin my enjoyment of the game or its soundtrack.

Honestly while it's not all hits I really enjoy it and it has stuff like Conquest (Ablaze) which helped me understand that I did like jazz and I was approaching it through a way that didn't quite appeal to me.

maybe overlooked but it's certainly well-regarded

there's a reason why Ubisoft released the soundtrack or promoted it before the game's release, they realized you can't go wrong with Amon Tobin

I mean, it's music. It doesn't matter if there's a game attached or not, if it has songs that can be enjoyed outside of the work itself, who cares if it's a soundtrack?
Music is music, no matter where it comes from.

Listening to bits of an OST has compelled me to take interest in a game before.

https://youtu.be/QmVBbJOEtsU for example made me take interest in Nier before I even knew the sequel was coming out a few months back

it's a hideous crossover of MLG dudebro music and hipster nu-male music

there's a few decent riffs buried underneath it all but that just makes it more disgusting

I always liked this soundtrack. It gave the game this very mysterious, powerful aura. Like a game about the ocean should do.

>>72885152
imma post again just to say that everything about this song is perfect

two different ideas going on, the lead electric piano takes the forefront but the bassline is so fucking CHILL, and the pad or strings or whatever in the background just give it this nighttime vibe
