Games with music that pulse you up

or games that just generally have good music perhaps.

I can think of two.
And secondly but of a recent rubbishy game but I like it on occasion called Slip Away.

Bastion and Transistor, some of the best music - not to mention the fantastic voice acting - I ever heard in a game.
Heck, I haven't bought a new CD - let alone vinyl - in ages, but have their soundtracks very high up my shopping list.

I will definitely second Bastion - more so than Transistor, which still has great music but didn't click with me in quite the same way.

For a more traditional gaming soundtrack, I'll vote for Ys Chronicles 1 - the modern remix with the electric guitar really does get the pulse racing.

2018 GOTY nominations: You're joking, right? I'm still playing games I got in 2015...

Crypt of the NecroDancer. The standard soundtrack by Danny Baranowsky is God-tier, the included metal remix is incredible and everything sounds better tenfold with the shopkeeper singing along.

Everyone's favorite chamber of death, doom and decomposition.
