Nerd Reactor: Back in college, my ‘Music in Film’ teacher always said that music is one of the key elements into making something great. It’ll make you cry. It’ll make you laugh. It’ll even inspire you to do great things. Without it, our films, television shows, and video games would be radically different, and frankly, quite boring. Great individual songs aren’t the only things that make a score successful, but also composing a reoccurring melody or riff can help unify a score. All of these components can help create a timeless classic. Then there are those that stand above the rest to be part of the top video game themes of all-time. I’m here to rank these theme songs with my Top 20 Theme Songs: Video Game Edition.
