I love game music too darned much.
2. de Blob - "Splashback" by John Guscott



The soundtracks to both of these games are pure, peppy gold from beginning to end.
3. Dark Souls II - "Majula" by Motoi Sakuraba



Of all the great music in these games, this is the track that ended up sticking with me most.
4. Kingdom Hearts II - "Passion - KINGDOM Orchestra Instrumental" by Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra



I should have made this thread a 10:1 ratio, shouldn't I?

Oh no.
5. DOOM (2016) - "Rust, Dust & Guts" by Mick Gordon



Hey, do you need to just let yourself enjoy FEELING intense rage for 7ish minutes? Mick Gordon's got you.
6. Beyond Good & Evil - "Home Sweet Home" by Christophe Héral



Ok, let's all come down from that rage fest, everyone chill. Geez.
7. Nier - "Song of the Ancients ~ Devola" by Keiichi Okabe, Kakeru Ishihama, Keigo Hoashi, Takafumi Nishimura



The best part is that Devola is actually playing this song in-game, and the vocal track will drop out if you talk to her. It's wonderful.
8. Xenosaga Episode II - "In the Beginning, There Was..." by Yuki Kajiura



This utterly incredible, dramatic, title screen theme deserved a better game.
9. Xenosaga Episode II - "Opening Theme" by Yuki Kajiura



For that matter, so did this wonderful opening theme.
10. Lollipop Chainsaw - "Zombie Guts" by Akira Yamaoka



Speaking of unremarkable games with killer soundtracks, did you know Akira Yamaoka will ROCK THE FUCK OUT when given the opportunity?
11. Final Fantasy X-2 - "Besaid" by Takahito Eguchi and Noriko Matsueda



I feel like we need to come down again, hang on... Did you know FFX-2's soundtrack is actually pretty wonderful?
12. Civilization VI - "Sogno di Volare" by Christopher Tin



I always end up letting this whole song play before actually loading my save. Every time.
13. Jet Set Radio Future - "Funky Dealer" by Hideki Naganuma



How does this game STILL not have a proper HD re-release, holy dang.
14. Chrono Cross - "Star-Stealing Girl" by Yasunori Mitsuda



This piece is so beautifully mournful it hurts.
15. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - "The Streets of Whiterun" by Jeremy Soule



Jeremy Soule, man. Wow.
16. Persona 5 - "Beneath the Mask (Rain)" by Shoji Meguro



uh oh, the Persona seal is broken and the floodgates are open, uh oh
17. Persona 4 - "Heartbeat, Heartbreak" by Shoji Meguro



How am I never tired of the music in these games after over 100 hours of play time each?
18. Persona 3 - "Mass Destruction" by Shoji Meguro



This franchise's boss fight themes are out of control.
19. Shovel Knight - "An Underlying Problem" by Jake Kaufman



I can't handle how much I like this game's music in general, but THIS TRACK ESPECIALLY
20. Rayman Legends - "Swamp Whistler" by Christophe Héral



I feel like I don't hear Christophe's work celebrated nearly often enough. His scoring for Beyond Good & Evil 2's TRAILERS is already making me well up.
21. Disgaea 2 - "Spread Your Wings" by Tenpei Sato



Disgaea 2 is my favorite in the series, but I get the feeling I might be alone in that sentiment? That's ok, because the tunes are great.
22. Prey - "Everything Is Going To Be Okay" by Mick Gordon



Mick Gordon might be my favorite composer in games right now, and that's saying something.
23. Undertale - "ASGORE" by Toby Fox



I love how this theme not only perfectly captures that emotion of an epic battle you've been building to for hours and DON'T WANT, but also sneaks in leitmotifs from Toriel's battle theme. Potent.
24. Undertale - "Undertale" by Toby Fox



I need to chill with the Undertale music before it starts me tearing up.
25. "Undertale - "His Theme" by Toby Fox



TOO LATE.
26. Wolfenstein: The New Order - "Herr Faust" by Mick Gordon



oh shit, Mick Gordon's coming back, EVERYONE HOLD ON TO SOMETHING
27. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword - "Romance in the Air" by Hajime Wakai, Shiho Fujii, Mahito Yokota, Takeshi Hama



For being my least favorite Zelda game, Skyward Sword sure does have an amazing soundtrack.
28. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword - "Chasing Fi" by Hajime Wakai, Shiho Fujii, Mahito Yokota, Takeshi Hama



I mean, right? Listen to that.
29. We Love Katamari - "Overture II" by Asuka Sakai



This game is so special to me, and picking best Katamari tracks is near impossible.
30. We Love Katamari - "Everlasting Love" by Alisa



That said, here's a best Katamari track.
31. Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep - "Daydream Upon Neverland" by Yoko Shimomura, Tsuyoshi Sekito & Takeharu Ishimoto



Yoko Shimomura was such a PERFECT hire for Kingdom Hearts, it's bonkers.
32. Kirby's Epic Yarn - "Blub-Blub Ocean" by Tomoya Tomita



More later, but enjoy this very cheerful Kirby music in the meantime!
33. Mass Effect - "Uncharted Worlds" by Jack Wall & Sam Hulick



Back on that song recommending grind, I guess. :P
34. Earthbound - "Buy Somethin' Will Ya!" by Hirokazu Tanaka, Keiichi Suzuki, Hiroshi Kanazu



What a good and weird soundtrack this good and weird game has.
35. Okami - "Uepeker" by Masami Ueda



Y'all really should play Okami if you haven't. One of the best, prettiest Zelda games ever made.
36. Ori and the Blind Forest - "The Waters Cleansed" by Gareth Coker (feat. Tom Boyd)



A sequel to this game means a new Ori soundtrack, and that is very very good news.
37. de Blob 2 - "Paint Party" by John Guscott (feat. The Bamboos)



Seriously, though, don't sleep on the de Blob game soundtracks. They're energetic fun beginning to end.
38. Assassin's Creed III - "Main Theme" by Lorne Balfe



The AC series has had some solid main themes over the years, but this remains one of my favorites of the lot.
39. PlayOnline - "Dolphin" by Noriko Matsueda



Even today, having to open the PlayOnline viewer to VERY TEDIOUSLY log in to FFXI is made better thanks to music like this.
40. Final Fantasy VII - "Interrupted By Fireworks" by Nobuo Uematsu



What the hey, we're gonna be here for a while. Let's do all Final Fantasy tunes for the next few hours. :P
41. Final Fantasy VII - "Prelude" by Nobuo Uematsu



Every iteration of this theme is good, but the FF7 version will always hold a special place for me.
42. Final Fantasy IX - "Terra" by Nobuo Uematsu



I just keep growing to love this game more and more.
43. Final Fantasy X - "Besaid" by Masashi Hamauzu



Besaid is two-for-two on getting really great music.
44. Final Fantasy X - "People of the North Pole" by Masashi Hamauzu



Dang but this game's music is good.
45. Final Fantasy X-2 - "Mt. Gagazet" by Noriko Matsueda & Takahito Eguchi



This zone had a great theme in the sequel too, come to think of it.
46. Final Fantasy X-2 - "YuRiPa, Fight! No.3" by Noriko Matsueda & Takahito Eguchi



Y'all, I'm telling you: this game's soundtrack is awesome.
47. Final Fantasy X-2 - "Eternity: Memory of Lightwaves" by Noriko Matsueda & Takahito Eguchi



(The game itself is great too, don't believe the haters) <3
48. Final Fantasy XII - "Eruyt Village" by Hitoshi Sakimoto



Sakimoto's music IS the sound of Ivalice, and I love it.
49. Final Fantasy Tactics - "Title Back (Bland Logo)" by Hitoshi Sakimoto and Masaharu Iwata



...And that's been true from Ivalice's opening moments.
50. Persona 4 - "I'll Face Myself - Battle-" by Shoji Meguro



This thread is getting out of control.
51. The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker - "Title Theme" by Kenta Nagata, Hajime Wakai, Toru Minegishi, Koji Kondo



For some reason, few game title screens make me feel this happy.
52. Gravity Rush - "Old Town" by Kohei Tanaka



This game feels like if Studio Ghibli was forced to help make a superhero game, and one of the biggest reasons is the music. Lazily drifting over the streets of a sky city while this plays is wonderful.
53. Guild Wars 2 - "Logan's Journey" by Jeremy Soule, Julian Soule



Jeremy Soule, though.
54. Chrono Trigger - "Memories of Green" by Yasunori Mitsuda



This game soundtrack is so legendarily good, posting tracks from it in this list feels like cheating.
55. Penny Arcade: On the Rain-Slicked Precipice of Darkness Ep.4 - "Tycho" by HyperDuck SoundWorks



HyperDuck SoundWorks are so great. This track nails that JRPG spirit of "the world is LITERALLY being swallowed around us, but FUCK IT WE'RE GONNA WIN"
56. Shadow of the Colossus - "The Opened Way" by Kou Otani



How is even the MUSIC for this game bombastically, majestically epic in scale?
57. Kirby's Adventure - "Orange Ocean 2" by Hirokazu Ando



This old Kirby tune deserves more love.
58. SSX - "Clear Skys" by Amon Tobin



Man, I miss SSX.
59. The Unfinished Swan - "Unfinished Swan" by Joel Corelitz



This whole soundtrack is so lovely.
60. Valkyria Chronicles - "Main Theme" by Hitoshi Sakimoto



S A K I M O T O F O R E V E R
61. Bastion - "Spike in the Rail" by Darren Korb



What a good good sound this game has.
62. Bloodborne - "Moonlit Melody" by Ryan Amon



This perfectly captures Bloodborne for me: a mysterious, haunting quiet.
63. Final Fantasy XIII - "The Gapra Whitewood" by Masashi Hamauzu



Hamauzu deserves SO much more credit than he gets for his work on the Final Fantasy series.
64. Shogun II: Total War - "Oyoiyoi" by Jeff van Dyck



those DRUMS
65. Disgaea 2 - "Shinobi Dance" by Tenpei Sato



Disgaea soundtracks have such a distinct sound and I love them.
66. The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask - "Final Hours" by Koji Kondo



Clock Town's last moments before the apocalypse are surprisingly chilling, thanks largely to this very melancholy music.
67. Super Mario Bros. U - "Superstar Road" by Shiho Fujii, Mahito Yokota



Big fan of this happy, twinkly map theme in a game already full of catchy map themes.
68. Splatoon - "Multiplayer (Theme 1)" by Toru Minegishi, Shiho Fujii



Splatoooooooon
69. Final Fantasy V - "Clash on the Bridge" by Nobuo Uematsu



This really is one heck of a boss battle theme, even by Uematsu standards.
70. NieR: Automata - "Birth of a Wish" by Keiichi Okabe



Haven't played it yet, but I just knew this game's soundtrack was going to be one of the best of the year and WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED.
