Top 10 Video Game Soundtracks of All Time

From the PlanetXbox360.com feature article:

"Music has got to be one of the most overlooked components within video games. They have the power to trigger emotions, generate feelings of nostalgia and enhance gameplay. In order to properly honor the developers who have made the effort to incorporate quality music within their games, we’ve compiled a list of the top ten best video game soundtracks. We hope that this list will give you a new appreciation for the brilliant composers and musicians who have worked hard to enhance our gaming experiences." ( Metroid Prime, Final Fantasy VII, Halo, PC, Portal 2, PS2, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360)

Good picks. My favorite picks would not always be amazing games though, these 2 are hidden in flawed games.

FF7!

FFVIII and FFIX have the best soundtracks to me personally, but FF7 probably has the best songs of the series. Must say, Symphony of the Night and Chrono Cross NEED to be on this list, pronto.
BinaryMind  +   1069d ago
I still think it's actually a very good list despite the absence of Cross. I wouldn't even change much of the ordering.
Son_Lee  +   1068d ago
The list is very good, and it's spread out among franchises, which is important. But I'll be damned if Chrono Cross isn't the best soundtrack I ever heard for a game.

Portal 2 nah. It may have some of the unique way of using music/audio with the different gels but so far from the OST released has been a bit poor and only a few tracks have stood out =/

Sorry.

Loved the boss battle music in lost odyssey. Always got me wired up.

I would have included Snake Eater instead of MGS. I think Assassin's Creed 2 has an excellent soundtrack as well.
