And so here we are, with the final part in our countdown of the greatest videogame soundtracks of all time. Perhaps something you were hoping to see made it into the list. Finally! Or missed out. Screw you Kosta! Which is to say that this list is subjective, and as a life-long fan of music in general why not chime in with your alternate top five. I'd love to read about/hear them.

No Star Control 2?
Yeah, kept it to original soundtracks. I feel that licensed should be it's own separate list.
Glad to see Journey in there, but surprised Cuphead didn't get a mention!
Honourable mention The Neverhood.
Also the Sergio Leone inspired Outlaws soundtrack was great, impossible job to mention them all, great article idea well done.
needs more witcher 3
The lack of Command & Conquer is a little bit of an oversight, Just Do It Up is catchy as hell.
Tim Follin's work often gets overlooked, probably because most of the games he scored are terrible. Most of what he's made tends to have a heavy prog-rock influence so if you don't like that then it may not be your thing, but his mastery of early sound chips is impressive whatever your taste. The NES sound chip shouldn't be capable of something like this or this.
Even the ZX Spectrum, a machine with a 1bit beeper speaker could manage some impressive stuff in his hands. It's a little hard to listen to with headphones, but compare this to anything else available on the platform and it's like some kind of sorcery.
His 16 bit work was also excellent, but also relatively obscure. Rock & Roll Racing for the SNES was him and contains some of the best guitar sampling I've heard. Plok sounds unlike any other SNES game and the unreleased Sega Mega Drive version of Time Trax has a fairly incredible intro song that does stuff with the Yamaha YM2612 that shouldn't really be possible.
