Pick ANY song from any MegaTen game soundtrack.

If anyone says something besides the silent hill series having the best soundtrack......you're wrong. Just all kinds of wrong.

Lesser so in some of the newer ones (like overall, SH origins and homecoming had only an above average soundtrack, with a few killer vocal songs). But the first three especially, oh man it's so prominent that it would be inaccurate to say it accompanies the game.

The Legend of Zelda series definitely has a great and varied soundtrack. They have music ranging from catchy, to creepy, to just plain epic.

Metroid-
Theme of Super Metroid
Super Metroid Ending
Brinstar Green
Ridley's Lair (super metroid version)
/
Castlevania-
vampire killer
bloody tears
theme of the holy man (simon's theme)
/
Sonic the hedgehog
Green Hill Zone
His World (somewhat)
Doomsday zone
/
Megaman
vs Zero (megaman x 2)
vs Zero (megaman x 5)
/
Halo-
Mjolinir mix
/
Doom
Harmagendon (e1m1)

Various GTA titles had some good radio stations & songs. If it counts, the fake talkshows were great too (they're audio-only and could be on a soundtrack)

If the brass at the end didn't fail miserably, that would indeed be one of my all-time favorite orchestral VGM renditions.

It's still great, but even despite the ending, parts in the middle are too quiet. That said, there aren't exactly a pleathora of Super Metroid Orchestra performances, so beggars can't be choosers, haha. It does Green Vegetation and Theme of Samus very well, though.

Uncharted 2 had a fantastic track in it. Some of my favorite songs in it:

And I also really enjoyed Chrono Trigger's soundtrack.
