1. Ace Combat 7 Original Soundtrack - Hands down the best soundtrack of 2019 for me.
2. Oni no Naku Kuni Original Soundtrack - Actually surprised how much I liked this soundtrack. I typically don't like your standard Eastern music but it's not overbearing in this score.
3. Princess Connect! Re-Dive Original Soundtrack - Another mobile game with a phenomenal score.
4. SOULCALIBUR VI Original Soundtrack - Always down for some Soul Calibur music and this continues the series high quality music.
5. Distant Worlds V: More Music from Final Fantasy - I like some of the newer series' songs (FFXII, FFXIII, FFXIV). ;clap: STOP :clap: PUTTING :clap: THE :clap: OPERA :clap: ON :clap: THESE :clap: RELEASES :clap:.
