    Yes yes yes! Data Discs do a lovely double album of SoR 2, that music stirs you up, in a very 90's dance floor kind of way...

    My Xmas present to myself was this lovely limited edition box set of the Nier OSTs. Beautiful music, lovely packaging and the pressings are wonderful:

    Something that may be of interest to folks on here is the soundtrack to Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. Issued exclusively on blu-ray, the whole thing is just under 7 hours long, plays in hi-res and even has an option to download MP3s off the disc (if you're not a pedant like me who rips audio from blu-ray discs). It's a really nice presentation, if not exactly cheap.

    I'd never even played the game. I was just curious once I'd heard about how they chose to package this thing. Music is great too. ;)

    The soundtracks to Red Dead Redemption and Deadly Premonition (which also happen to be my two very favorite games) are just beautiful and absolutely breathtaking.

    Final Fantasy game soundtracks always stood out to me in my youth for me. Maybe some Mass Effect music is really nice, here is the Illusive Man Suite for example:

    The Streets of Rage II soundtrack was probably the first game with a soundtrack that grabbed me, especially the intro and credits.

    Tony Hawks Pro Skater II also got me into a few bands that feature on that.

    Perhaps my favorite video game opening theme ever.

    And just for fun, the godlike power of the Yakuza series' Majima Goro's rendition of 24-hour Cinderella. Dynamic. Exciting.

    I'm glad that someone ripped the soundtrack from the arcade game Spy Hunter, which uses the Peter Gunn theme. I thought a lot of the solo sections were pretty well done.
