Do you have a favourite soundtrack from a game?

Recommended Posts

There have been quite a few games that I have played and the soundtrack has been quite disappointing and then other times I have found that some games have amazing soundtracks that stick in your mind long after you have played the game. 

One game that comes to mind and is a game that I love the soundtrack for is the Halo games. The music from this franchise is just awesome.

So many good ones, I can't pick a single favourite, but here's a few that stand out to me;



A soundrack comprised of all original songs from the band 16Volt. The game itself is an underrated classic as well.


Example Song:

The Burnout Games.

I know, this is a little bit of cheating as these are playlists made up of licensed songs, but they are very compilations worth checking out. I'll even extend that to Burnout Paradise, even the game itself is a piece of shit. I'll just post the intro to Burnout 3: Takedown as a taste of what to expect:

Even though it is all licenced music, some of the games did something clever with it by muffling the music while you were not boosting and that served as a genuine incentive to go hell for leather just to keep hearing the music like it was meant to be heard.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

It may be a familiar score, in fact the main theme is the same one from previous Elder Scrolls games, but it was upgraded big time for Skyrim. If stop and listen to it, it has a very dramatic, full sound that is easy on the ear and very pretty at times too.

Goldeneye (N64)

I know that this soundtrack is mostly comprised of remixes of the James Bond theme, but the are original mixes and sounded fantastic, and on N64 no less. They still sound fantastic a quarter of a century later. I would go so far to say that this video game has the best version of the James Bond theme I have heard in my entire life, full stop. That alone more than deserves a shout out.

Final Fantasy XIII

I don't care that this game sucks, the music is fantastic, one of the best soundtracks in any FF game. I have got to be honest, I do think FFX's soundtrack is better, but I decided to focus on FFXIII as I feel this great soundtrack gets overlooked because the game itself was a bit shit. It has that serene, yet chaotic feel to it that's very unique and pleasant to hear.



This was a decent racing game for the time. If you could set the sound up to use the CD tracks instead of the default sound font for the music (Oh yes, GONFIG and SETUP programmes for games, gotta love the 90's), what you would get is one of the best game soundtracks ever.

I don't listen to game soundtracks outside of the game. But I will say that all the Final Fantasy scores are absolutely great orchestrations, so much so that there are occasionally Final Fantasy orchestras that tour and come to my area that you can go watch and appreciate.

The music towards the end stages of Control was pretty rockin' lol.

Pretty much the majority of Sonic games have amazing soundtracks, but my all time favorite from the franchise is Sonic CD. (I prefer the Japanese soundtrack.) I also love the Legend of Legaia soundtrack, with my all time favorite game track being Cort's first battle theme.
