GameHub HQ entries are jargon-free, so you can get the information you need as easily and painlessly as possible, but there are still some words worth knowing.

What is an OST, what do you need to know and why do you need to care?
What It Is: OST = Original Soundtrack
What It Means: The recorded music present in a film, TV programme, or in this case, game.
Why You Care: The term is the same in games as when used in TV or movies. The OST to a favourite game can sometimes be bought or downloaded as stand-alone media, and makes an interesting and unusual gift.
