Mass Effect should be on the list along with 100 other games.

Silent Hill ost is crazy and fitting the atmosphere too.

Red Dead Redemption says "hi".

Speaking of Rockstar Games - GTA:Vice City just kicked the door down!

Yeah I second RDR. One of the best gaming soundtracks in my opinion.

Nice list (I love Journey's soundtrack) but felt like top 5 really didn't cover it, as there are so many fantastic gaming soundtracks. Perhaps top composers would have covered more ground.

Journey should number 1 hands down.

Metal Gear Solid! Ladder scene...

A bit niche, but Body Harvest's soundtrack way back on the N64 was wonderfully atmospheric and really elevated the game.

A good list... I love games that have subtle soundtracks that you don't realise the impact of until later on.
