I definitely agree with the mention of Abzu's music earlier in this thread -- it's so good.

 

Mass Effect 2 remains one of my favorite games of all time and it also has a fantastic soundtrack. Just going to leave that here: https://open.spotify.com/album/2G19I23CbULYoPBDGNxL9k

 

Also, Cuphead's soundtrack is awesome. Very thematic to the game and rather unexpected! https://open.spotify.com/album/3jQ7eqotwovipeZ3j3rMqu

 

Finally, another soundtrack worth checking out is Celeste. I think it does a good job of blending modern with a more classic "video game" sound: https://open.spotify.com/album/5OZHQ7KG8k04IOkF50fACO

@StereochromaticI absolutely agree with Mass Effect 2. Amazing game with amazing soundtracks.

 

@CourtneyM17Thanks for sharing! Racing games is not really my cup of tea but I wouldn't mind giving them a try though.

I think without a doubt the Skyrim OST is the best.

The music in Skyrim is amazing!!  It is such an integral part of the game's atmosphere.

Metal Gear Solid V: Phantom Pain has lots of cool music from the 80's!

Here’s my favorite song from the soundtrack to the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3 computer game that I used to play as a kid:
