Vice city / San andreas hands down never has a game perfected a soundtrack so much that it has influenced pop culture especially the brief 80s revival that we saw shortly after vice city released.

Segata54d ago

Um, the VC OST is actual songs from the 80s. They are all licensed. They didn't inspire anyone when they didn't create them.

Halo: CE wins hands down. Anyone who has ever played the game would agree, whenever you hear “video game soundtrack” it’s the first thing that comes to mind.

@ Well I think of TES games, those games would not have been the same without Jeremy Soule. But that’s my opinion and why this article is a list and not multiple choice.

Profchaos53d ago

They didn't need to create them it vibes perfectly with the game

It's not really their soundtrack tho is it? Also I think what you're trying g to say is it gave people a way to discover music. Either way it's not an original soundtrack.

The Witcher 3 had an awesome soundtrack.

arquette54d ago

Agreed but this one is for the classics- the most iconic ones. TW3 is relatively new

ArchangelMike54d ago

Ermm... not to be picky but....

Overwatch is on that list. A game that came out in 2016 AFTER The Witcher 3. So... yeah!

Anyway have a listen to some this, it's just Epic

Then why are Overwatch, Undertale, Uncharted, and Assassin's Creed 2 on there? The songs are neither iconic nor classic. Is this list wasn't just some dude plucking out his favorites and actually using iconic themes in gaming then surely MGS would at least get a shout out!

I more prefer soundtrack from Witcher 1 if you not listen. Try:)

TyrellCorp53d ago

I think the new GoW and Journey should have got some love.

spicelicka54d ago

Halo soundtrack will always be timeless.

Fraggle198754d ago

Overwatch is on here but the likes of FF7 and Metal Gear solid isnt? Thats a joke.

Segata54d ago

I have no idea what Overwatch OST is as I never played it but I sure as shit know any FF OST and def know Metal Gears.

kneon53d ago (Edited 53d ago )

I don't know why Overwatch is there, I've been playing it quite a lot lately and yet I don't know that I would be able to recognize the soundtrack. It's not particularly memorable.

TekoIie53d ago

The main theme is definitely memorable but that's all it's got. I'd say we need more than just one track to consider any game to be among the best .

PiNkFaIrYbOi53d ago

Yeah, surprised that only one Final Fantasy made it, as really between FF VI‐X were all awesome.

Gatsu53d ago (Edited 53d ago )

Indeed.... FF7 still has the best soundtrack ever made.

Fraggle198752d ago

Absolutely agree. The soundtrack is simply a masterpiece.
