The best soundtracks in Videogames

Hey guys

I am currently working at a news bureau in Denmark, where we in two weeks are putting focus on gaming music.

I am working on an article about the best soundtracks in videogames and I would love to hear which soundtracks that have impressed you.

Which video games do you have to play because of the soundtrack?
Which soundtracks blew you away?
Any soundtracks that are timeless?

Just hit me with all you got. I really want to know.

pretty much anything with a symphonic orchestra in it.

and while not exactly a piece of soundtrack per se, but Borderlands the Pre-Sequel has one amazing piece of music.

Heroes IV - Sea Theme, Heroes 4 wasn't the best game in the series, but it had the best OST to me and this particular track always gets me humming with nostalgia for the old universe.

Wrath of the Lich King - Main Title, Arthas, My Son as well as a ton of other soundtracks from my favorite World of Warcraft expansion. WoW in general had and still has great epic music.

Civilization IV - Baba Yetu and Civilization VI - Sogno di Volare

The Witcher III: Wild Hunt - The Fields of Ard Skellig

Red Alert - Hell March

Styles of Beyond - Nine Thou (Superstars Remix), from NFS Most Wanted.

Doom 2016 - BFG Division

And probably many, many more, but this should suffice.

I never began a video game because of the soundtrack, but some video games I returned to because I remembered the soundtrack more than the actual game play. Therefore these are all games I eventually played because of the soundtrack, a soundtrack that "blew" me away and a timeless soundtrack...
Here are a couple:
Major Stryker
Lotus III (Best I could find on a short notice)
One Must Fall 2097
Donkey Kong Country 2
I also really liked some of the Lemmings & HoMM 2 soundtracks, but since HoMM 2 have already been mentioned and I couldn't find any Lemmings soundtrack I remembered, I didn't add those.

Prince of Persia: Warrior Within

Absolutely amazing, well composed, produced, mixed and very fitting to the game overall.  For me, this is one of the top soundtracks out there.

As much as I like the music from The Witcher 3, that particular theme is plagiarized at at least partially. Medieval: Total War has incredibly good music in general.

The best game soundtracks (GOSTs) I remember right now:

Warcraft 2
Heroes 2
Heroes 3
Warhammer - Shadow Of The Horned Rat
Warhammer - Final Liberation
Descent 2
Diablo 1

Maybe from new games Tyranny GOST too, it's symphonic music, but it's rather memorable.
