    I just played MGS3:SE and it had a cool soundtrack.
    It was very fitting to the era the game took place in.
    Shadow of the Collossus had great, eerie music
    Kingdom Hearts I and II
    Rez

    I don´t know much about video game music scores to actually talk about it, there are great soundtracks, but can´t really say which.
    I like big dramatic/action pieces that stay with us long after the game is over, the same goes to movies.
    So, with that in mind, two amazing soundtracks are Metal Gear Solid and Bionic Commando
     
  8. I liked CoD4's music.

    I like how Mass Effect's score has a very recognizable unique sound, and when I hear that stuff in other music I'm like, reminded of running around the Normandy.

    Perfect Dark Zero is my favoritest OST too coz all the music is like, crazybeatz.

    Silent Hill series has like, the all time best music ever though.

    And a shoutout to the MGS themes.

    Nothing beats the Castlevania series IMO, especially Rondo of Blood, Symphony of the Night, and Lament of Innocence.
