ZTGD | Drew's Favorite Game Soundtracks

I’m a firm believer that music really does make or break a game. You can have an amazing game, but the wrong soundtrack can change it from a great experience to one that’s merely “OK.”. I love music, particularly video game soundtracks. They can set the mood, get you pumped, give you a good scare and even make you tear up. That’s why I’m going to share some of my favorite video game soundtracks. Keep in mind that music is all about taste. My preferences may not be the same as yours, so feel free to share your favorite game tunes in the comments. These are some games and game series that have some great original soundtracks (in no particular order). (Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Culture, El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron, Mega Man 3, Persona 3, PS2, PS3, Retro, Super Meat Boy, Xbox 360)

There are so many games that you could have mentioned for great soundtracks...I like this little article because music is essential for games that make you feel even more so than storytelling in some cases. Nailed it on the head for some but I'd like to mention: Nights into dreams, Grandia II, Kingdom Hearts, and I'll throw a retro one in there with UN Squadron. More come to mind but that would take days.

Thank you for the kind words. Music can make or break a game. I have a ton more I wanted to put into the article, but I went with this just to try to cover a good variety.

I agree! One of my favorites from many is Halo CE. I love that soundtrack. Everytime i hear it I can tell what stage, what i was doing and how I felt playing it. Epic soundtrack imo.
