Hello, I know I don't participate enough in this forum, but I'm still pretty much a beginner where orchestral scores are concerned.

What I'm looking for are full orchestral scores for anime and video games with little, if any, synthetic accompaniment.

Scores with tracks that don't fade out at the end would be preferable, but not obligatory.

Good question. I'm sure I'll think of more later, but here are a few good ones.

Intelligent Qube (
Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch (
Shadow of the Colossus (
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (
Landmark (
Civilization V (

Dear Esther (
Bioshock Infinite (
Final Fantasy XII (

Battlefield One (
That Dragon, Cancer (
And, just for fun, The Dig (, which deserves an orchestral reworking

I'd recommend all the scores by Joe Hisaishi for Studio Ghibli animes that he (or others) recorded with an orchestra, e.g. the symphonic suite of
Princess Mononoke (, him conducting the 25 Years Studio Ghibli Concert (, the My Neighbor Totoro Orchestra Stories ( and much more...
