5 Great Video Game Soundtracks: Which Are The Best Of All Time?

Forbes - I probably haven’t played enough games to definitely say which video game soundtracks are the best of all time, so I’m going to pick a few that I really like and then hand the microphone to you, dear readers.

MrKingofVideoGames1747d ago

dude, how can you have a TJ & E avatar and not put that on your list?

hahah true that. now that you mention it that sound track was SICK, but i guess i was just thinking of actual songs, all the games i listed have a sound track with really good popular hits.

but not only that, racing while annihilating people off of their bike while jamming out to "mean machine" by Sugar Ray

doing insane tricks to the sound track of SSX tricky and then when you busta move "trickey" by run DMC starts playing etc.

the sound tracks to those games were not only good songs but were implemented with the gameplay sooo awesomely and perfectly.

No "One Winged Angel?" This guy is clueless. I heard a group of 8 year olds playing it on their phones to one another the other day. If a 14 year old game soundtrack is still being picked up and loved by the newest generation, then it needs to be on the list. The noob who wrote the article probably lived in his mom's basement, forever friendless, to not have heard of it.

One winged angel is pretty epic :)

Not hating on Mezzo though. The article itself was good. Two thumbs to you Mezzo!

Final Fantasy VIII...that Soundtrack is just amazing and is so unique compared to other Final Fantasy games. The music goes well with scenes and the theme song Eyes on me goes well with the romance between Laguna and Raine/Julia and Squall/Rinoa. It's better then any other FF games soundtrack....yes even FFVIIs

Definitely my favorite soundtrack of all the FFs, and one of the favorites in all of gaming.

Others include Castlevania:SotN, Ridge Racer 4, and Nier, along with pretty much any game with Shoji Meguro's music(particularly Persona 3).
