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.
road rash 3D ps1, ssx tricky, ssx on tour, bournout paradise, defjam fight for NY. imo
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.
Zelda:OoT best soundtrack ever!
Im going with Mega Man 2 My standout favs..... Metal Man Stage Air Man Stage Crash Man Stage Wood Man Stage Dr Wiliy Stage Even the Ending has a great tune
My top picks: 1. Final Fantasy 7 2. Mass Effect 1 3. Metal Gear Series
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).
List without Chrono Trigger = no list at all...
This stirs something within me that I just cannot describe http://www.youtube.com/watc... 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 http://www.youtube.com/watc... And of course the main theme from the sequel http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Legend of Zelda: OoT Dark Cloud 2 Fight Night Round 4 Skate Kirby's Adventure
Needs NieR and Chrono Trigger on that list.
Both Jet Set Radios
Castlevania synphony of the night! and Litle Big Planet
mgs uncharted mass effect 3 arkham city halo starhawk lair
Assassins Creed 2, Jesper Kyd creates magic.
ff 6-10 and chrono cross. 'nuff said.
One question......where is Black?
Oblivion, Halo Reach, Skyrim, Madden 2003, braid
There was a game released ages ago for ps2 called Roadkill, there was a two and a half hour long talk radio show on there, funniest thing i ever heard, always gonna be my fabouritw game soundtrack
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.
Shadow of the Colossus Metal Gear Solid Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (Radio X & K-DST especially) Final Fantasy VII Uncharted Halo Fallout 3 God of War LoZ: OoT BLACK
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 http://www.youtube.com/watc...
SotC Uncharted 3 MGS Jet Set Radio
assassins creed 2 ost was pretty good..
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.
