Top 5 Video Game Soundtracks Every Hardcore Gamer Should Hear

AJ Lysiak writes: "Sadly, Video-Game music is often stereotyped as being “not really music at all.” Some think Video-Games will forever feature retro 8-Bit stylized music. While others find it humorous that anyone might sit down and listen to say, a well composed Final Fantasy album.

The point is that this genre of music as a whole is not well respected. Ironically, songs like the “Halo Theme,” The Immortals' set of Mortal Kombat tunes, or the “Mario Theme” can garner a universal following which is virtually unquestioned. Yet to the average non-gamer or casual-gamer, the Advent Children version of FF7's “One Winged Angel” for example might sound like a silly mush; and not the beautifully orchestrated piece it actually is. Here are some soundtracks to games that are not as well known compared to the likes of big-hit RPGs and classics." (Armored Core 4, Baten Kaitos Origins, BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger, BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger Portable, Culture, F-Zero GX , GameCube, Jet Set Radio Future, Nintendo DS, PS3, Wii, Xbox, Xbox 360)

Nice to see someone choose something besides a complete list of Sqaure/Enix soundtracks.

Any of the Silent Hill soundtracks deserve a mention.
Beautiful and terrifying soundtracks.
