Top 10 Video Game Songs of All Time

BGG writes: The motivation to defeat the final boss, the reason for loving or hating a character, or the chords that send us over the edge emotionally. Music can make or break moments in gaming and here's my personal Top 10 Video Game Songs. (Final Fantasy X, Halo 3, PC, Portal, PS2, PS3, Retro, The Legend of Zelda, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, Xbox 360)

Cynthia Harrel Murdered that snake eater them. Better than a Bond Movie intro.
fabiani  +   1081d ago
Yea that definitly belongs in the number 2 spot. FF10 was the best, still waiten for a hd remake.
rogimusprime  +   1082d ago
Nice list, kid.

But you are too young. Sephiroth had his own F**KING CHOIR.... just for ONE battle. Not a lot will top that.

Capcom gets a lot of shit for on disc dlc among other things, but they make some damn good music. Disappointed that no mention of Mega Man, Street Fighter, Vs Series, ect. was made. But whatever, opinion pieces are just that.

Demon's Souls song reminds me a bit of Drakkengard XD
I don't know why...probably the creepiness.

Mother$@&! son of a %$&*% there's such a thing as a spoiler alert!!! Whoever the &#^!#% wrote this article just ruined the ENTIRE Mass Effect trilogy for me. Nearly done with 2 and the &*@$% has to go and say "when so and so sacrifices etc. etc. etc. at the end of ME3..."

Rage quitting life. F*ck it.

EA dies at the end, right?

Also, the list isn't that great.

One per franchise? (or at least per game as well...not in any specific order). And to say the least I think I'm adding iconic songs, so DONT JUDGE ME! (I guess all I play in the majority is RPGs. So for me it's top 10 majority RPG songs XD):P
Final Fantasy VII-[Prelude]
Why? It was the first final fantasy I started on and the intro was something fantastic and describes Final Fantasy (for me) in its entirety. I know there have been different renditions but seeing as this is the first one for myself, it creates all sorts of Final Fantasy memories.
Why? It was and is the heart and soul of the original Diablo. I can still hear "What ails your my friend?" and "What can I do for ya?" in the song, even though it isn't even there.
Sacred 2: Fallen Angel-[Blind Guardian - Sacred] http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Why? It was in the game down the roada, it fit the game very well and was so very cool to be able to have a concert in an RPG game! The song is amazing and is why it's here.
RollerCoaster Tycoon-[Theme] http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Why? if you ever had an interest in sims games and managing a park it will bring a wave of nostalgia. Playing this game for hours on end and being so old it does wonders.
Kingdom Hearts-[Simple and Clean] http://www.youtube.com/watc... [Slow version]
http://www.youtube.com/watc... [Intro Version, not the video haha]
Why? it was the song that became the identity of the first Kingdom Hearts that started an amazing story. To have Square and Disney mixed together was one of the best things to happen as it was the best of both worlds! :)
Battlefield 3-[Theme]
Why? honestly from all the ones I have heard I liked it the most, I guess it might be my love for techno/dubstep...and the game was darn fantastic.
The Witcher-[Theme - Believe]
Why? It has amazing violin in it! There is lots to like about the soundtrack and this was (I believe) part of the credits as well. Very upbeat and fantastic to listen to.
Drakkengard-[Theme - Growing Wings]
Why? It was a freaking gory and very fun game! The song describes everything about the game and it still to this moment makes me tense as ever...Freaking god-damn endings!
The Legend of Dragoon-[Theme - If You Still Believe]
Why? It is very enchanting. The game itself was amazing although I had never beaten it.
Alan Wake-[Poet and The Muse]
Why? Poet of The Fall is awesome, hands down. Not only that, but the song describes the game very, very well. The only reason I won't link this song is because it seems to have a spoiler about the game. So search it if you want.

Randomly although it ISNT in the game, for Guild Wars 2 I LOVE "Fear Not This Night" it is beautifully sung and has a very serene sound to it.

there are lots of music being theme songs and probably songs from games I haven't played but I posted some that some people might not have heard of instead of the same tiring thing again and again :P

(By the way, the post above is on the edge of 4000 characters if it isn't already haha)

Sorry, got carried away. I love my music D:

Final Fantasy VI - Terra (Tina)
segamon  +   1082d ago
too many top-10s this week.

i'm going to call it: Top-10 Invasion (pun)
RockmanII7  +   1082d ago
Just wait until we start getting "The 10 best Top 10 lists" articles.
bubblebeam  +   1081d ago
Prey. Had one of the best soundtracks of all time, but is never mentioned due to low sales. You have to listen to the whole thing. It is epic without a doubt.
pandehz  +   1081d ago
Always felt the Mass Effect tracks induced the best emotional rides for me in all the 3 games.
Venox2008  +   1081d ago
Conker: great mighty poo song
Okami: thank you song and others are great
Zelda: skyward sword Fii's Theme (where piano and flute) I love that
Mario galaxy: gusty garden & Space junk galaxy song
Pikmin: forest of hope song
Venox2008  +   1080d ago
oh and Fragile dreams had one of the best soundtracks
Capt-FuzzyPants  +   1081d ago
No Kingdom Hearts or Chrono Trigger? They have just as good soundtracks as Final Fantasy.
Stoppokingme  +   1081d ago
Stevie Vai playing the halo theme in halo 2 was kick ass.

I know it's not a worst song list, but anyone who can listen to the boss fight music in blue dragon without having a stroke should be classified as indestructible, and free to become the next avenger.
CrimsonessCross  +   1081d ago
Please...god...make it stop! XD yeah, that song...was very annoying after a while. I could go without hearing it again my whole life and it'd be too soon.
Tzuno  +   1081d ago
I do not read the article but as a fast note i remember a sick track on Flintstones on Supernintendo. Good days.
