Default Game that appeared the most on different albums

What's the game whose original soundtrack (not arrangements/remixes) has been put on the most number of different albums?

I've been wondering for a long time.

Out Run might be a candidate - it's on at least 5-6 different releases we have, not counting reprints.

That's a good one. Hope someone else can chime in.

Hmm, OST that has appeared the most times...

For SEGA, I think Afterburner might appear a few more times than Outrun, but both are probably in the Top 10 in this category.

Capcom sure likes to get mileage out of reprints and stuff, so early NES Megamans would be a solid bet there...

Since Square-Enix tends to do little tweaks/upgrades to their re-releases, that probably knocks classics like FF IV and VI down a few places, since it's not exactly the "same OST" each system re-make.

For Namco?... surprisingly the original Pac-man is only in a handful of places, and they had enough varied hits that they didn't need to over milk any certain cow....

Yeah, I'd venture Sega's Afterburner as my top bet.
