I feel like no Halo 3 here is a huge sin but other than that a great list!

It's got to be Medal of Honor Soundtracks for me. Have had them both on my MP3 player for about 2 years. They're the first thing I put on when I refresh my list

Medal of Honor

Medal of Honor : Warfighter

Great haunting music, that takes you straight back into the games.
Both soundtracks were composed by Ramin Djawadi who also did the Prison Break soundtack.

I don't have the Dark Arisen version of Dogma, the main menu theme is awesome. It's some kind of KPop song.

I don't know how Halo 3 didn't make the list, or honorable mention at the very least, but definitely good picks. I'd probably rank Mass Effect at #1 with Halo 3 close behind

For some reason Halo: Reach always stuck with me, particularly when it really kicks in at 1:00. Possibly because it sounds like it should be in a Dragon Age game or something, which admittedly was always what I wished I was playing when I was compelled to play this with friends!

I agree with Ori, for sure. I've only Bean Dived it, and yet that title music and the music of the first level alone have made it shoot right to the top of my recovery list.

The Skyrim theme edges it out for me over the Oblivion one, just because the latter is a little more generic. Plus it reminds me of the incredible launch trailer that had me so damn excited.

Vigil would probably go straight to the top for me, though, along with most of the trilogy's score.

As for more sombre themes, I have a real soft spot for Assassins Creed: Revelations. It's so much more haunting and ghostly than the game itself turned out to be, which is a shame!

How the hell did halo 2 not make this list, or even the honourable mentions?

You know what you're playing. You know what's going to happen. The theme says EVERYTHING without saying ANYTHING.

It's brilliant, one of the best soundtrack menu themes of ALL time.

Not a single halo game angry

I also quite like the new menu theme from the Witcher 3; Blood and Wine.

Not that these choices aren't good but seriously, where is Halo? As I was going through the list, I fully expected Halo 3 was going to be number 1. Of course, any list is subjective, and I'm certainly biased as a big Halo fan, but I would've thought something as iconic as the Halo theme would have been at least mentioned.

At least the list has Mass Effect and Dark Souls 3, so it isn't completely wrong lol.
