    The Fallout series has been rather blessed in having two great original soundtrack composers in Mark Morgan and Inon Zur, and I was wondering what tracks were everyone's favourite? From any game, because as terrible as Fallout 4 was in nearly every aspect I actually really liked the OST.

    I think my favourite overall is Gold Slouch by Mark Morgan

    It's just the essence of New California and the Wasteland in general. If I had to pick a song to represent the atmosphere and tone of Fallout, it'd be Gold Slouch.

    Second favourite is "Rubble of the Forgotten" for similar reasons, except instead of Fallout in general, it's New Vegas in a bottle.

    "How are you holding up?"

    I love this banger, because even though the game shows very little of the actual highwayman driving around, this immediately sets the tone of it.

    It's 106 miles to Arroyo, we've got a full fusion cell, half a pack of RadAway, it's midnight, and I'm wearing a 50 year old Vault 13 jumpsuit. Let's hit it.

    Might came out as a fanboying, but I love all of Mark Morgan's work in Fallout 1 and 2 equally. And as much as I think of him as inherently inferior, I think Inon Zur's work as of New Vegas is still so good. I'll never forget Doc Mitchell's first words as my Courier awoke for the first time after getting shot in the head to the tune of Rubble of the Forgotten.

    However, if I really, REALLY have to pick a favorite, I'll have to vouch for Metallic Monks. That soundtrack I heard across New Vegas for the first time has become the immediate melody I'm hearing in my head, every time I think about Fallout.

    Also, if we're allowed to include TC mod's OST, I'm recommending y'all to listen to the soundtrack playing in Uranium City in Fallout of Nevada.

    I don't know if it's necessarily my all-time favorite, but the first thing that came to mind was "Dream Town" from Fallout 2. From the moment that you first enter Modoc that song sets the tone and tells you everything you need to know, and it does an excellent job conveying the spirit of a dying town.

    If on the off chance, Mark Morgan does the ambient soundtrack for Fallout 76 (he won't) I will buy it the day it comes out

    Radiation Storm is my favourite one because it makes exploring the Glow at night an unforgettable experience.

    Other than that, New Vegas nailed Vault 22 with Vault of the Future, which brings the creepy notes in the track together with the vault's overall feel of uncertainty. To this day I get a slight jumpscare when accidentially bumping into a spore carrier I forgot was there.
