What game OST are you listening to?
I thought it might be nice to have a more narrowly focussed game music discussion thread, like the music thread but with more potential overlap of interest.
Anyways ... I've been listening to Motoi Sakuraba's Baten Kaitos OST, which has really surprised me, in a good way. Most of the OSTs I have heard from him have been largely generic chaff up to this point, with the exception of Resonance of Fate (largely thanks to Kohei Tanaka), a few tracks from the otherwise awful Eternal Sonata and one of the thematic tracks from ToV.
This is why I found it shocking that a large number of the tracks on the Baten Kaitos OST were fairly original and competant tracks that any game designer would be happy to have on their project, I am particularly enjoying the game's theme which can be heard in such tracks as 'Brave Way' and 'To the end of the Journey of Shinning Stars'. Also of note is the elegant and sombre piano track 'Limpidly Flow', which I imagine would do an amazing job in establishing the mood of any game event.
This OST was actually so good that I've ordered the game in spite of some of the less than favourable opinions I've heard regarding some of the game's aspects.
