While good game-play and story are two important factors to a great video game, having a good score is always the icing on the cake. There are a few games that stand out because of their soundtracks.
Personally, I am a huge fan of Fallout’s. Mark Morgan, who composed the first two Fallout games, captured the atmosphere perfectly with his dark and eerie music. Metallic Monks and Vats of Goo are my two personal favourites. Inon Zur, who composed the Bethesda Fallout games, is great too. Fallout 3 and 4’s score are fantastic, and like Mark Morgan’s music, captures how it feels like to live in a post-apocalyptic world.
I have a few more that I love. For example:
Mass Effect (Particularly the 1st one).
Resident Evil 5
Gears of War 2 (I like the the soundtrack in all the Gears games, but Steve Jablonsky did an amazing job with the 2nd one).
