My favorite OSTs from each Nintendo console:

NES: Super Mario Bros. 3

Game Boy: Pokémon Red & Blue; Super Mario Land 2: Six Golden Coins

SNES: EarthBound

Nintendo 64: The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask

Game Boy Color: Pokémon Gold & Silver

Game Boy Advance: Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Justice For All (it would be the third game but all of the trial themes in AA2 are my favorites); Pokémon Ruby & Sapphire

Gamecube: Luigi's Mansion

Nintendo DS: Hotel Dusk: Room 215; Pokémon Black & White; Professor Layton and the Curious Village

Wii: The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword; Super Mario Galaxy 2

Nintendo 3DS: Animal Crossing: New Leaf; Mario & Luigi: Dream Team; Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Spirit of Justice; Pokémon Sun & Moon; Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy

Wii U: Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker; Mario Kart 8; Super Mario 3D World

Nintendo Switch: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

A couple notes: these are all in alphabetical order, not in any kind of order as for how much I like them. Also, I really wanted to list New Super Mario Bros. U for Wii U because the main theme is my favorite Mario track in years, but the OST is so short that I couldn't put it alongside those other giants. Also... pretty much all the Ace Attorney and Professor Layton games would be on this list if I didn't limit myself to one per franchise. I snuck the crossover on there at least.

Fuck logic, that shit is boring, lame and does not always support my opinions.

The World Ends With You

You have just triggered my long-buried nostalgia and now I really want to go back and replay that game

there's also a huge difference in quality between 2000 songs and 2010 songs
The difference between 2000 songs and 2010 songs is 10 songs.

Maelstrom's list is very long, so I'll post a bit early. :)

Pokemon DPPt

thats basically it
It was great!! A very enjoyable experience. :)

NES: Metroid
That was amazing!!! A very impressive soundtrack. It's got a great atmosphere, too!! I love it!
Quote
SNES: Chrono Trigger
Lovely! Quite some variety, but really nice as a whole. There were quite some tracks I had heard before. :) Very nice!

Quote
N64: Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
This is the third time for this soundtrack to show up, but this time I actually listened to it. The previous two times I thought I knew the soundtrack already, but when listening to it, there were some tracks I didn't recognise! A very nice work.

Quote
GCN: Metroid Prime
Wow, that was... interesting. Some very impressive and different pieces. Some pieces were very unsettling, but fortunately there were some more relaxing themes too. Overall, an interesting experience! :)

Quote
Wii: Xenoblade Chronicles
That's amazing! I feel like there's quite some variety throughout the soundtrack, and yet everything fits. The quality of the individual pieces is outstanding! I think the only piece I had heard before was Gaur Plains; the rest was new to me! And there were some very good themes in there!


I'll skip Super Mario 3D World, as you weren't certain enough about that, and continue with Link's Awakening. ;)

Wow, this is a lot to do in one post!
GB/GBC: Link's Awakening
I didn't enjoy this. Most themes are either very short or very strange. It's been a while, but as far as I can see or recall I wasn't impressed by anything in this soundtrack. I do really like Kozue Ishikawa's work in Wario Land 1, II and 3.
Quote
GBA: Mother 3
This was the most I have ever been impressed by any soundtrack. And I've heard quite a few! I know the GBA, and I've heard a lot of soundtrack for it, some of better quality than others. This is just crazy. The quality of all tracks is outstanding and I unfortunately cannot find an English expression to express the creativity expressed in this soundtrack. My first moment of total astonishment was at the drum solo. Unfortunately I haven't been able to find it back; I'd like to hear it again. Then, later, classical music. I was able to find that back. Such an amazing medley. Later on, a CONCERT. ON GBA. After 5 hours, the soundtrack still kept surprising me again and again. I need to listen to it again sometime, I think. The only timestamp I wrote down is 6:02:20. The song that follows there... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
A truly amazing experience!
Quote
DS: Radiant Historia
My expectations got raised quite high when I saw this was composed by Yoko Shimomura. And while, compared to the previous soundtrack, I wasn't remarkably impressed at this, I did enjoy it! Quite beautiful.
Quote
3DS: Bravely Default
This was a very interesting soundtrack! Beyond that Prayer I noted down as being especially so. The entire soundtrack was beautiful, and quite refreshing! It really made me feel good. It's also very nice how intense and relaxing tunes are mixed throughout the soundtrack, and both are executed well.
Quote
PS1: Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
A grand soundtrack! I liked it, it was an interesting experience. I liked how orchestral it sounds, and I also really like the use of vocals and environmental sounds. This wasn't a very relaxing soundtrack, but it probably fits the game, judging it by its cover. ;) I particularly liked Lost Painting.
Quote
PS3: NieR
This was very interesting. I read up on the soundtrack on Wikipedia, and read about the made-up languages, based on different languages in use now.
Quote
PS4: NieR: Automata
A great work! Very impressive. The video I listened of the soundtrack wasn't too great, in my opinion... but the soundtrack itself is amazing! The idea used in NieR was expanded upon in a great way. :) I enjoyed all 3 sections of the soundtrack: the instrumental tracks, the tracks with vocals, and the 8-bit tracks.


Next is swimswamit, but they picked a lot of soundtracks other people had listed before, so we'll see how long that'll take. :)

Just so you know, I arranged that Mother 3 song you linked to via timestamp.
http://forum.ninsheetmusic.org/index.php?topic=6215.msg391532#msg391532
The best way to listen to the Mother 3 soundtrack is to play the game yourself. That way you'll understand the context even better.

Oh, and the Link's Awakening one is pure personal preference. That was the first video game I ever finished, so it has a special place in my heart, even if it's not that great out of the context of the game itself.

NES: Super Mario Bros
An amazing soundtrack. It's so simple and clear, and yet in Bowser's Castle's theme you sometimes don't know what's going on. :P I don't know what to say on this. I've heard this soundtrack so many times I definitely can't give you a first impression. But oh, is it good.
Quote
SNES: Super Metroid
Pretty good! It certainly is atmospheric, like Metroid. Not anything too special, though, I thought. Especially not when compared to the original Metroid soundtrack, which was spectacular.
Quote
N64: Ocarina
This soundtrack is very good. It's also got quite a special feeling to me, even though I've never played the game. The Hyrule Field theme is amazing. It's so long, too, and features a lot of different themes! I also really like the Potion Shop theme. And some other themes are remarkably eerie!
I hadn't heard the staff roll theme before. :)
Quote
Gamecube: Wind Waker
Another great soundtrack. What really got to me is how many tracks convey the location they're used in. When you hear the Departure theme, it actually sounds like you're on a ship. I automatically start moving my head from left to right and back. :P You can also clearly hear that it's not a cruise ship you're on! My reaction to the Great Sea theme: "Oooooh!!! I don't think I need to explain why this is so great. ;) But I can try. :P It really expresses the vastness of the ocean, and the sense of adventure. :) And of course the beginning arpeggios picture the waves of the sea!" And then the Dragon Roost Island theme really feels mountainous! Perhaps because of the instrumentation?
I was also particularly impressed by Molgera's theme. That's so cool! And 'Farewell Hyrule King' was very interesting as well.
Quote
Wii: Super Paper Mario (Floro Caverns/Sammer's Kingdom) Regardless of opinion on the game, I always though Brawl had some really good tracks too.
I hadn't ever heard this soundtrack before, and it was much better than I expected! The music sounds a lot like The Thousand Year Door, but it's certainly still very unique. I was surprised to see that both games did have different composers!
Quote
GBA: Superstar Saga (Hoohoo Village ftw)
I've actually been playing Superstar Saga again. It's my second favourite GBA game, and also in my top 3 GBA soundtracks (not counting remakes/ports; my favourite GBA game is a remake/port, namely Yoshi's Island).
Cackletta's Theme is clearly my favourite. I'm hoping to play it on organ some day, but I've only played organ twice in my life, so I'll need some more experience first, I reckon. ;) Other favourites are Beanbean Castle, Prince Peasley's theme, Gwarhar Lagoon, and Teehee Valley (panflute is always nice ;)). I also feel like E. Gadd's theme perfectly 'captures the spirit' of professor E. Gadd. Bowser's Castle's theme is unique when compared to other interpretations throughout the Mario series, and I really like that. Especially because it does still get the atmosphere right. Oh, and I should mention the credits sequence. It's probably the most comforting credits theme I know. And that's really welcome, after such a journey. :) It's not extremely emotional or intense or upbeat like credits themes for other games, and that's nice, as that's not what you need at this point. :) What you need is a theme to lay back to, and relax.

I'm including my favorite track in each game so if you want to hear what I think is the best from each game, you can check those out.
NES: The Legend Of Zelda.  The main theme in the game is amazing, especially for composing VG music at the time.  (Runner Up: Super Mario Bros. The Overworld theme is catchy to this day)

SNES: Super Mario World.  I love the Bowser's castle theme especially.  (Runner Up: The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the past. Dark World rocks.)

GBA: Super Mario Advance 3: Yoshi's Island. I couldn't fit the original on the SNES list. Haven't played that many GBA games.  This one has such a catchy joyful soundtrack, especially Athletic.

N64: Super Mario 64. Bob-Omb Battlefield is my favorite from this game. Awesome soundtrack all around. (Runner Up: Ocarina of Time. (Gerudo Valley is my favorite from this game, not the only great one though.))

Gamecube: Double Dash 'Circuit theme' is a classic (Runner Up: LoZ: Wind Waker. Love Dragon Roost Island)

Wii: Super Mario Galaxy/Super Mario Galaxy 2 (Tied) Amazing soundtrack for amazing games.  These 2 are tied for my all time favorite soundtracks. My favorites are Egg Planet, Gusty Garden, and Sky Station.

Wii U: Mario Kart 8. Such an amazing jazzed up track, full of retro remixes and new compositions.  My favorites are the F-Zero themes, Electrodrome,  and the Hyrule circuit tracks. (AMAZING!!) 
(Very Close Runner Up is a tie between DKC: Tropical Freeze and Yoshi's Woolly World. Both are my favorite games and soundtracks in their respective series. Snowmads theme, and the main Woolly World theme are my favorites here.)

Switch: LoZ: Breath of the wild, I loved this soundtrack. It has the main theme as my favorite. Every single one of the many tracks felt like well polished and magnificent compositions.  (Runner Up: Super Mario Odyssey. the Fossil Falls theme is amazing, as is the rest of the game.)

I haven't played to many on other platforms besides PC, so I'll have an 'other/multiple platforms' category.

Other: Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove.  I only found this game last year, and the soundtrack is amazing. I love all of them, but 1,000 Leagues Under, Strike The Earth, and Main Theme are my favorites. I HIGHLY recommend listening to this if you haven't yet.   (Runner Up: Minecraft. Such a peaceful soundtrack. Especially the ones in Alpha Album. Wet Hands is my favorite from this game.)

There you go.   ;)

Thanks for the new reply. :)


I listened to a lot of video game music in the past 9 days, as I've been working on my final assignment for my current study.
NDS: PMD: EoS
Someone said that this soundtrack wouldn't mean anything if I hadn't played the game. He wasn't entirely correct: I still enjoyed it. However, I do think it's a lot better if you know the context. The composition was very good, but I felt like I was missing something in order to be able to fully enjoy the music. But even stand-alone, it's a good soundtrack!
Quote
Xbox/360/One: Halo, Skyrim, Star Wars Battlefront II (the old one)
Halo: This was unexpectedly chill. From a shooter, I had expected more intense music. This was more ambient, though, and it was great!
Skyrim: It started off very exciting, and there are some other really cool songs too. I love the songs with vocals. Are they actually lyrics, in another language? Most other tracks were more relaxed. There was a good amount of variety in the type of music, and the overall quality of this soundtrack was very good! Which I had expected, to be honest, from a game like this.
Quote
Wii: Super Mario Galaxy (the first one)
I featured this myself in my own list. I did however listen through it again now. It's still amazing. ;)
