No one has mentioned Rayman Origins yet? Holy cow, the OST is brilliant and perfectly suits the whimsical theme of the game. Also, they made banjos and fiddling blend with an orchestra, who else even tries that?

This is always a hard question even to narrow it down to a few soundtracks. I tend to go for dark horse OSTs. People will already mention other stuff that's also good like more popular Final Fantasies, Halo, Mass Effect, etc.

Ys: The Oath in Felghana
A Premonition
Sealed Time

Final Fantasy XIII
(not that I like the majority of the OST, though it has some uniquely good ones)
Lake Bresha
Blinded By Light

Chrono Cross
Time's Scar
The Girl Who Stole The Stars - (cover)

I enjoy the overworld music from Super Mario Bros.
I even had a girl play it when I went over to her apartment to try to woo me.
Then we played Star Trek doctor.

i always thought some of the music from Unreal Tournament was awesome, like Facing Worlds or Gothic (sorry, couldn't find the Gothic music without the gameplay).

i thought the composition for the original Myst game was excellent as well (all of it - any music from any world).

and last but not least (and i might be getting a bit off topic w/ this one b/c its not really a game), the synthesized music for "fr-08: The Product" demo by Farbrausch was awesome...btw, they've done several of these demos, some of them also with great music, and some of them not so much...

I still cannot believe no one has Shadow of the Colossus in their list. Please have a listen if you haven't already. Its a soundtrack that evokes strong emotions every time i listen to it.
