VGChartz Top 20 Original Soundtracks in Gaming (20-11)

VGChartz writes: "This was not an easy list to come up with. Indeed, what started off as a top 10 soon mushroomed into a top 20, and could have gone much higher still, but limit ourselves to 20 we have. It was certainly enjoyable though; listening to some of these soundtracks made us want to replay some of these often classic games."

I'm hoping to see Sonic the Hedgehog or Final Fantasy somewhere in the top 10.

Also, I doubt it will make it on this list at all, but the old Crash Bandicoot games had some memorable songs.

Metal Gear Solid for #1!

Starcraft, it's been years since I've heard that. Good good times.

Nice list so far though, curious to see #1.

I don't remember the Crash Bandicoot music really.

But I always say it for these articles. The game soundtrack that deserves recognition yet never gets it is Max Payne 2.

This sets the mood so perfectly for the game.

As a kid in the arcades (early 80's) this little blues ditty I just couldnt get out of my head... Hell, Its still burnt into my memory banks till this day.

Da da da da da-de a da da

I hope that Wipeout HD will make it onto the list, that and Motorstorm PR. Those are my 2 favorite games in terms of soundtrack.

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who loves The Sims music

I hope to see Goldeneye or Perfect Dark make the top 10 cause they both had amazing soundtracks, I wish some FPSs these days could have similar soundtracks

Perfect Dark and Goldeneye 007 deserve to be on this list aswell.

Perfect Dark
Goldeneye 007

Those games soundtracks are forever in my mind and ears.

Alien Trilogy also had some great music.

Mista T3729d ago

I remember the caverns soundtrack a lot, scary if your little, epic if your older

these soundtracks in games are a reason why games are art

The BS Police3729d ago (Edited 3729d ago )

Videogame music is definitly a great art and it makes videogames themselves an even greater artform. It not only helps to keep you entertained and your adrenaline flowing... but for me it helps to imagine myself in those situations aswell.

Goldeneye was awesome back then. We'd stay up all night play 4 player deathmatch.
