I realized last year when I was writing the award article for the year's best original soundtracks that I had completely missed a lot of them and had to do a lot of catching up at the time. I also noticed that quite a few great soundtracks went unrecognized in the voting, perhaps because the game itself went largely overlooked or it released so early in the year that most just forgot about it.
As such, I thought it might be a good idea to start keeping track of the video game soundtracks that people really like, so when the award season comes along again we all have some place to come to and maybe remind ourselves of the best video game music of the year. I definitely need something like that to keep all the great soundtracks in mind come the end of the year.
So, if you play a game from this year with a soundtrack that you believe deserves some recognition, leave a recommendation and maybe even a link to a song from the game in this thread. I'll collect everyone's recommendations with the links into a table in this post as the year progresses. That way everyone who wants to can easily look up any of the recommended soundtracks.
