There's plenty of more recent games that had brilliant OSTs...

- Radiant Historia (
- 999: 9 hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors (
- Bastion (
- Persona 4 (
- Metal Gear Solid 4 (
- Dear Esther (
- Braid(

I could go on for ages...

From this year, I'd say Journey. This generation, the best soundtrack I've heard belonged to Nier.
