Jamie of the 16bitkings runs you through some of the best soundtracks to accompany video games. Part One!
Id like to recommend the works of Masafumi Takada and Erica Niwa who nailed pulse pounding tracks in Vanquish, Jesper Kyd's earlier works in Freedom Fighters and Kane and Lynch Dead Men, Daisuke Ishiwatarii with his phenomenal guitar work in the Guilty Gear Series, Akira Yamaoka (need I say more?) and the Chris Tilton / Michael Giacchino power combo in their contribution to Black.
Castlevania Lords of Shadow 1 & 2
2 of my absolute favorites of recent times have been Mirror's Edge and Deus Ex Human Revolution. A couple more that are certainly worth a mention are Red Dead Redemption and Heavy Rain.
Nier better make it on some part of this list.
Red Dead Redemption, Metal Gear Solid 4, Uncharted series, Gears of War series, Demon's Souls and Dark Souls.
NIER had one of if not the best OST this gen IMO
DKC2, Okami, Wind Waker (my personal favorite LOZ score), LBP, and Xenoblade
