I got it, but man this list was hard to make. I feel like you made it especially tough by making it a top 20, if it was a top 10 it was a bit easier to narrow down only my absolute favoritest songs, but 20 is nowhere near enough to cover all the ones I love a lot. I forced myself to pick at most 3 per series and still found myself having to juggle dozens of songs. Just want to give a shout-out to Battle!! Torna which nearly made the list despite me having never played a Xenoblade game, I just heard it in Smash and man it slaps hard. Anyways. I don't know what they say about me but here goes.

20. Hyrule Castle from Breath of the Wild
19. Blooming Villain from Persona 5
18. Vast Poni Canyon from Pokémon Sun/Moon (yes I still hate the game and most of its soundtrack)
17. Route 10 from Pokémon Black/White
16. Zero to Hero from Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy
15. Lost Cemetery from Death's Door (a very recent addition this)
14. Up the Spirit Caverns Walls from Ori and the Blind Forest
13. Shinshu Field from Ōkami
12. Fi's Theme from Skyward Sword
11. Rivers in the Desert from Persona 5
10. Alien Manifestation from NieR: Automata
9. Aegis Research Institute from Astral Chain (beware of heavy spoilers in the video, it's the best I could find)
8. Ori, Embracing the Light from Ori and the Will of the Wisps
7. The Sunlit Earth from Shadow of the Colossus
6. Epilogue ~ Those Who Remain from Shadow of the Colossus
5. Reset ~ Thank You from Ōkami (and shoutouts to the vocal version)
4. City Ruins - Rays of Light from NieR: Automata
3. Life Will Change from Persona 5
2. A Shine Upon Inkwater Marsh from Ori and the Will of the Wisps (if it played on repeat for my whole life I wouldn't get tired of it)
1. The Sun Rises from Ōkami

By the way, I've played four different Persona games and thought they all had good to great soundtracks, so the fact that all 3 spots the series had were taken by Persona 5 is indicative of just how much I like that soundtrack. (Also the 3 songs per series thing ruled out so many Will of the Wisps songs, I could've had half the list be from that game)

I make music, check it out here on Bandcamp, Spotify, and Youtube!
