Does Ocarina of Time have the best soundtrack? (Gaming)

Forgive the off topic post—I thought this might make for an interesting thread.

I’ve been thinking about great video game music lately (due in part to replaying a bit of Morrowind), and I stumbled upon this video. Every single song is instantly recognizable, and it’s all amazing. I submit that Ocarina of Time might have the best music of any video game.

Perhaps not fair, as this is a beautiful piano rendition rather than the music as it was in the game. I still think I stand by my statement though.

So Is it the best soundtrack regardless of the game? How much of the music is good based on nostalgia? Is it purely defined by the game? I mostly ask these questions because I've never played Ocarina of Time, so will I still think it's the best soundtrack?

I definitely think there are some soundtracks that really require you to be playing the particular piece of game that it was made for and it sounds "good" otherwise, but it was tailored to the game.

This was mostly a food for thought reply :D
