Halo should have been there too . But my gosh ...God of war sound track sounds amazing . http://www.youtube.com/watc...
yep that game had amazing theme and sound.
Sure, but not as good as what i mentioned.
True. I'm not fan of Halo but the music is brilliant. Lol, when I hear GoW theme I can't think of anything else than: http://www.youtube.com/watc... Also, I think it's more like top 5 audio tracks, not soundtracks. @Dan: Really? http://www.youtube.com/watc... I think it shouts 'awesomeness'. Also: Crisis Core http://www.youtube.com/watc... Everquest 2 theme http://www.youtube.com/watc... Shenmue http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc... Jade Empire http://www.youtube.com/watc... Zone of the Enders 2 http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc... Want more examples?
That's pretty awesome.
opinions are very welcome, so post your thoughts! =)
The MGS sound track sounds awesome.
One game that should always be mentioned but never is is the Max Payne 2 theme song. Fits perfectly with the game and sets the mood. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Max payne : " Mona . Mona " Mona: " O max..thats the spot ." Max payne 2 as great . The ending to .
yes max payne 2 was awesome ... for a list with game music it needs to have max payne 2 and halo 3... and damn yes red alert 2 was awesome as well ... i still remember that opening invasion of new york ... good times
No Final Fantasy, Zelda, or Lost Odyssey on this list? FAIL.
So amazing, in fact, that I bought every MGS game's soundtrack (excluding Portable Ops) about a year ago, and I still listen to it today! Shadow of the Colossus had a brilliant score, and Zelda did as well. One that gets overlooked IMO is Assassin's Creed. Just listening to the soundtrack without the commotion of the game is just phenomenal! I totally recommend it. Mass Effect is probably the best sci-fi music I've ever heard. The music pretty much set the mood in that game with its use of synthesizers. Just pure amazing...
Good pieces. I just wish the article was better written. @fox ME is definitely one of my favourite soundtracks in recent times. Such a great sci-fi sound. I surprised myself by enjoying it a lot more than anything Star Wars has ever offered musically. Two favs-- Spectre Induction: http://www.youtube.com/watc... Noveria: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Top 5 Video Game Theme Songs. If it was top 5 video game songs, I would have chosen MGS3's "Star Sailor - Way to Fall".
Yes, it indeed makes the experience that much better. Have you listened to the end credits song (M4 Part 2)? It literally takes all of the epic sci-fi awesomeness of the entire game and adds a slight hardcore element to it that just works out so perfectly. But it sounds much better if you're listening to it during the actual credits after you beat the game instead of on the soundtrack. That's what makes the end credits song in any game/movie great, knowing that you beat/finished it adds that great feeling you can't get with the soundtrack.

best score in a game ever http://www.youtube.com/watc...
If you're talking about DMC, I'd say this one is the best: http://www.youtube.com/watc... I gotta say, it was one hell of a song to start the game with. Just the scene itself was pretty cool. Yours is a good one, too. DMC surprisingly has a pretty decent soundtrack...
@foxtheory omg i always loved this song, but i still think mine tops it. however this one is also worth a notable mention the beginning sux hard but start listening at 2:44 http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I wouldn't say that it's one of the BEST video game songs, but it's great for DMC. The beginning sounds like the song When Worlds Collide by Powerman 5000. Perfect combat music for DMC4. And then the ending brings out the serious, save-the-world-and-don't-back- down side of the game, which let's admit, is very little in the series. The hardcore battles and the egotistical, rebellious attitude of Dante is where it's at!!! @below I couldn't agree more. I just played ME1 over the summer, and now I'm psyched for ME2!!! I hope they keep the same style of music in it, too, although I'm positive that they'll use plenty of synthesizers!!
@fox Yeah, I got into Faunts a bit because of that one. Was a really good fit to the original compositions. :] Can't wait till the second game comes around.
Haha, I'm so glad I'm not a fan of God of War cause I'll always think of that whenever I hear it. That's one of the funniest things I've ever seen.
The best videogame soundtrack ever is FF7. All the songs are great and are remembered by anyone who played the game. http://www.youtube.com/watc... cosmo canyon http://www.youtube.com/watc... seto http://www.youtube.com/watc... costa del sol Im gong to test my ps3 emulation and play FF7. If my ps3 was to break with the disk in it, id tear it to pieces to get my ff7 back.
FFVII? I'll respect your opinion of the music, but more objectively...? Heck no. FFVI and VIII were both much, much better composed than VII. Uematsu himself admits this. It's a solid soundtrack, but hardly even the best of the franchise. In all of VGM though, it's difficult to award "best" to a single game. Too many styles. That's like trying to award "best" to one of the millions of songs on the radio at any given time.
[CTRL+F] "Xenosaga: Episode II" ... FAIL!
I hate JRPGs tho so I never played 6, and I got really bored of 8 because it wasnt nearly as good a game. also dues ex has great music too.
In my opinion is of course the soundtrack for Silent Hill 2. "Theme of Laura", "Promise", "Love Psalm". The list could go on and on! Akira Yamaoka created his masterpiece right there! http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Halo #1 for sure
I dont thnk so. Sorry for the disagreement :)
Halo is teh greatness .... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Screw that. Halo = Okay mjolnir mix = awesome.
I like the halo one as well. Here is some good FF6 ones http://www.youtube.com/watc... and http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Whether you like the game or not, Halo has a really good score. Gregorian plainchant in a video game?? That's damn risky, and they sure pulled it off. Whether people realize it or not, it's one of the key things that helps differentiate the game. I've played all the Halo games, I don't really like them, but I'll admit that I love the score. I think 2 is the best because of the massive Incubus instrumental (from before they started sucking), but ODST's noire-ish themes in the night-time sequences are a really good call, they help create the mood instead of simply fitting into the mood.
Yeah, the score has always been a constant high point of those games. The Halo theme itself is superb.
Kinda of disappointed with the exclusion of Angelo Badalamenti's soundtrack to Indigo Prophecy (Carla's Theme: http://www.youtube.com/watc... It was amazing and he certainly added to the atmosphere of the game in a way that no other composer could have. edit: I just read the part about epic themes, so I guess Indigo Prophecy doesn't count. They should reword the title to Epic Themes.
Wow, I had no idea the music in Indigo Prophecy was done by Angelo Badalamenti. I love all his work with David Lynch and I was friends with his nephew in high school.
Yeah, I first listened to his stuff in Mulholland Drive, which quickly became one of my favorite movie soundtracks. I was on the fence about trying Indigo Prophecy, but when I read that he did the music, that definitely pushed me over the edge. Way to recognize! Bubbles!
Bubbles back at ya! My favorite stuff of his is from the Twin Peaks tv series.
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City!!!!
Halo has a good vibe to there music . http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Yo get off of Halo's nuts. Anything related Halo you are there.
Dude stop it. We heard you the first time
Fine ok.... ANother good game soundtrack http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Yeah dude, Bioshock's score is AWESOME. Like, really REALLY awesome.
For me: Megaman 2 (Wily castle, 1st stage)
I thought one of the best things about Mirror's Edge was its main theme: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Where's Ace Combat? http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
WTF?!!! No FF game soundtracks or audio tracks? ...not even LOZ. You know the music in that is composed by a mastermind. This list Fails. FFIX- EPIC MUSIC http://www.youtube.com/watc... LOZ Oot- EPIC MUSIC http://www.youtube.com/watc... I wonder if we will ever get music in games like that again :(
Mass Effect and Halo should be on that list. one of my favorites from mass effect: http://www.youtube.com/watc... Awesome. this-- http://www.youtube.com/watc... and this-- http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Also M4 Part 2 and the opening theme was brilliant!! Such a great game and such a great soundtrack.
..but I thought that the soundtrack to Resident Evil 2 REALLY cranked up the atmosphere at the time, and just made the whole experience.
LOL. I loved the hell march Red Alert soundtrack.
IMO Halo does have one of the Most epic soundtracks. with out the Music the game would lose all Immersiveness. Not saying the list is a bad one. But Halo really should be on the list. It's the only sound track that i actually went out and bought from a game.
if youre not using surround sound at least. sorry, but thats 1 of the things that i believe makes me better than some gamers. the fact that i am a serious hardcore gamer. i dont care if you dont have a job. you need to steal 1 to really get what sound is all about in gaming.
Lame. "better gamer." doubtful.
As long as MGS3 and SOTC soundtrack are in i agree. Uncharted 2 also has one of the best soundtrack if i might add.
are you serious? you went out and bougth a halo soundtrack when you could have just called 1-800-4myxbox. wsup with you. coulda had my respect if you said you bought the grand theft auto soundtrack. instead you chose opera music with a 5th element beat? weirdo. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Well i did say it was my opinion. I would take it any day over GTA soundtrack. it's some of the best modern classical music out there
gta doesn't really count since all the music is all pop music that's already been written. It's more a compilation then an original soundtrack, plus it definitely doesn't fit the genre of epic, as indicated in the article
No Chronotrigger, Xenogears, or Street Fighter? No way.
No Silent Hill 2? Fail.
Shadow of the Colossus.
Duke Nukem 3D http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I counter with Doom 1. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Parry with The Moon, Duck Tales: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
lol, the best soundtrack from any Doom game has to be... http://www.youtube.com/watc... :D
I thrust with the Tetris theme: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
chuck norris ..
Castlevania Symphony of The Night needs to be on that list! To me it's probably the best video game score/soundtrack I've ever heard. It's absolutely dark and beautiful. FF7's soundtrack was top notch as well.
Hmm no FF titles? Thought that FFX's (Final Fantasy 10) Soundtrack was immense, especially the To Zanarkand piece. Quite a strange list though... *EDIT* http://www.youtube.com/watc... immense!!
