Top five game soundtracks?

We're planning to introduce our very talented (and up-and-coming) music guy in a future update, which got us thinking and debating: what are the best game soundtracks ever? Game music is something we're crazy passionate about here, so we decided to share our favorite game soundtracks and would love to hear yours - IF you can pick a top five, and rank them. Tough rules, but that's why the choices matter. We also avoided cheating by saying things like "every Castlevania" or "every Final Fantasy", even if it would've been true.

And yes, Steve cheated with his honorable mentions.
