Bohemia Interactive did some live recordings of the Arma 3 soundtrack for the game's anniversary recently.

This is War: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kQjeRh2m9fM

Fighter Jets: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8mH4q0-vsUA
Malden: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IOQKzjZaU_8

Also the new-ish Laws of War DLC has some nice stuff I think. Playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLseIxlPC58frDmQvqlmPKpMEjWCc54VQO

Another goldie oldie from Deus Ex: Hong Kong. This music and everything cyberpunk are basically inseparable in my head.

Personally I can't think of cyberpunk without thinking of Tiberian Sun. TS's music was just completely perfect for that sort of tone.

Also I forgot some things in my last post here lol.

Anno 2205 - Global Union Anthem: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8YE_8TGjC5g
EUIV - The Voyage (this one has video of the orchestra too!): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=99_qehhZUds
The Bureau: XCOM Declassified - Don't Lie to Me (by Stompy Jones): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aSFKRoV5rAk - This one is groovy as hell tbh. Here is the band's website.

Also there's a really good C&C Generals mod, Mideast Crisis, and it has good music too! The sequel for C&C3 also has music but I couldn't find it online anywhere. Both were made by ISOTX, and on that note i'm still extremely sad that March of War died. :(
Main Theme: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UnN_7bD6Ahk
Syria: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ymMgWLOnD4
Israel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JW_-C1ffrHs (sounds like something from Red Alert lol)

After trying and failing to hook an Xbox up to my PC monitor for a week, I gave up and decided to just listen to Halo music so I can at least pretend that i'm playing. :P We've missed some good ones from Halo on here!

Last of the Brave: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EnonMn7mNF8 - Actually a remake of Brothers in Arms from the first game, but higher quality.
Farthest Outpost: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YlFSP0BvZfY - Probably my favourite.
Pillar of Autumn: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mmtjZEbti1U
Ghosts of Reach: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mUD9dX0aNBs
Black Tide: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TjlQVARALzA - This is probably the most ominous track (or at least the most ominous melody) in the original trilogy, all other flood-related music is worse simply because it's not this one.
Best Guess at Best: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AoQiD_c6URU (also another version) -  A very close second for the most ominous track award. Context probably helps a lot but this track still freaks me out even outside of the game. Reminds me of the Mona Lisa story, which legitimately scares me.

Also, from what i've heard so far, the music to Halo 5 is very good. Just as predicted in the first post here. Much better than the blandness that was Halo Wars 2's soundtrack by a long shot too, i'd say it's on par with the original games in music.
Halo Canticles: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-PdD_jlXXbk


Dawn of War 3 is also a thing. Most of the music felt forgettable to me, but I think the Eldar theme is unique in a good way and the Ork theme is just too fitting.
Swordwind: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Pywh0gPlnk
The Maniac Horde: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rr9k7aXPq48 - ORKS IS MADE FER ROKKIN'


Also some other random things.
Alien Swarm - Rydberg Rumble: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=grwCROeMwgs
Dota 2 Soundtrack: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLB856D5AAA4BC6A10 - Believe it or not, something decent has actually come from a MOBA before.
Hearts of Iron IV - The Man on the British Countryside: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1tHba_OtfbI
Wolfenstein: The Old Blood - Monster Battle: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SHDkrrUZRc4 - This sounds disturbing and also reminds me of a sci-fi B-movie, which is a good fit for the game's aesthetic/feel. You have no idea how hard it was to find this track also lol, I don't even remember how I got it but it wasn't on youtube or in the official soundtrack release.

Sort of cheating, but Troy Baker and Ashley Johnson did a live rendition of Wayfaring Stranger by Johnny Cash recently, apparently in relation to The Last of Us Part II: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lt1Od4r0BD0

Could be in the game!

Characters:

-Hawking Shatari, Master of Myserty
-Aspasia Maguire, Smack Talker
-Rieko "Boogie" Black, Agent of the Empire

Love a spot of jazz, and to my surprise, one of my favorite tracks is off of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations OST.

'It'd been a good night for Miller Turlim; he got his closure, got a nice meal, got laid, but of course, his subconscious wouldn't let him so easily escape to a state of elation.' - How did anyone ever let me post on this site.

The best Command and Conquer game has some of the least interesting music. It works really well in-game of course, but it's just kinda boring to listen to elsewhere. Idk how that happened, lol.

The short victory/loss themes are all pretty neat though! Even if they're only 20 seconds long, and you barely hear half of that in-game anyway. If I had a superpower, it would be to magically get extended versions of short tracks like these. :P

Mourning Hour (Loss) : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mLKXzSDa3_U
Guilty Pleasure (Nod/Scrin victory) : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SEJuvaf2Otk
Blue Glory (GDI victory) : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pQK1XsjiZbw
Bleak Twilight (Kane's Wrath campaign victory) : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_WYj_DI1ZOc

And on the subject of C&C, I hope everyone knows about Renegade X. It's an amazing fan remake of the original Renegade in the Unreal Engine, and it's been given the green light by EA to exist. And it has tick tanks, walkers, attack bikes, and hover MRLs too. It is a thing.
