Favourite Game Soundtrack (OST)

Hello,

I guess we all have played a game, and realized that the music is extremely good. To me, music is an underlaying factor to whether I will like a game or not. What I dislike with a lot of new modern games is that they only tend to sound like theatrical themes, with string quartets with horns and tuneful yet sad pianos. Sure, this is good too - but not if all songs of the game are like so.

What game soundtracks have you encountered to be one of the best game original sountrack (=OST)? Remember that a soundtrack can be one track, it doesn't have to cover ALL of the songs in a game.

For example, I think Grand Theft Auto: Vice City & San Andreas have great soundtrack (both talking about the intro songs, ambient songs in the background during some of the dialogs, but also the radio tunes).

Lots of games I've played had a good OST.
Here's some examples.

Wow, I never thought I'd see Crash Bandicoot here! They have such a unique sound.

However, I guess I'm more of a retro guy after all. My favourites are probably these (I have many, though!):

I'm so happy to see someone adding a HL2 soundtrack, plus Splinter Cell, Spyro and Rayman.

The second one is most likely my favorite in that game, tho.

The RuneScape theme gotta be my absolute favorite of all times.
