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. (Culture)

road rash 3D ps1, ssx tricky, ssx on tour, bournout paradise, defjam fight for NY. imo
MrKingofVideoGames  +   1304d ago
dude, how can you have a TJ & E avatar and not put that on your list?
PoSTedUP  +   1304d ago
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).

This stirs something within me that I just cannot describe

Also as the author mentioned the awesome Witcher 2 track
heres one from Witcher 1 simply gets deeper as the track flows, specially love how it strays into wild territory from 1:30 onwards

And of course the main theme from the sequel http://www.youtube.com/watc...

Fallout 3 has such a brilliant soundtrack. Can't beat exploring the wasteland and shooting freaks in the head in slow motion while listening to old classics and a bit of Three Dog.

Also, very surprised to see nobody mention any of the GTA games yet. Ever since Vice City they've all had awesome soundtracks.
Wintersun616  +   1304d ago
Shadow of the Colossus
Metal Gear Solid
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (Radio X & K-DST especially)

Well the only video game song in history to ever be nominated for a grammy is baba yetu (civilization IV), it also opened the 2009 world games and won many other smaller music awards

The Kingdom Hearts series, most FF games, and the Chrono series are better than some of those. I haven't played all of them or listened to them but The 3 games I mentioned were better than the ones I have played.
