Sage's Top 15 OST Tracks

I struggled with this blog post for a while, to be honest. Not only was narrowing down my favorite tracks to a mere 15 going to be difficult but music in general is incredibly difficult to explain why you like it or why it makes you feel a certain way, at least to me. I think video game OSTs have the incredible quality of nostalgia going for it as well and when you hear a track from one of your favorite games it immediately brings you back to the immersion and feelings that game gave you. The music essentially is working in tandem with all of the other aspects of the game to create an overall feeling, and that's probably the best way I can ever hope to describe it. So my struggle was how was I going to explain why I liked these tracks?  The more I thought about it the more I realized I don't have to! There are some games out there that have award winning soundtracks composed by award winning musicians, and thanks to this very specific media, a track from an old Nintendo game could be much more emotionally meaningful to somebody. It's all so obvious to me now!

Before I get into it, I'd like to note that for this specific list I'm going to limit myself to one track from each game series I choose or else this list is going to be filled to the brim with certain games and I'd like to have some variety. (it also made doing this a whole lot easier!) So without further ado, I present my top 15 OST tracks of all time!
