Top Ten Video Game Songs.

This type of top ten list has been done to hell. It’s been done so many times, by so many people, that I almost didn’t want to do it. Well, that still isn’t going to deter me from throwing out my top video game song picks. The following songs are on the list because their awesome, and because out of all the countless video game songs I’ve heard, these have really stuck out in my mind.  Some big names are going to be missing from this list. So if you cant handle that, then go make your own list. This is my opinion. So, here we go

10.

Dr. Doom’s theme from MVC3 is just a really cool song. A lot of people might say it doesn’t fit Doom. I could care less if it does or not. This song just kicks ass. Period.

9.

Velvet Room is the name of this masterpiece, and is a good example of how video game music can broaden your horizons. It so great when a video game can turn you on to music that you never in a million years would think you would ever like. This is a beautiful song, and I hope you enjoy it.

8.

This Piece is the boss theme from Final Fantasy XII and does exactly what its supposed to do. Convey a feeling of “OH SHIT! EPIC BOSS FIGHT TIME!!!!” It does this very well.

7.

This is the end game, you better be ready for this. This song sets the perfect tone for the end of Kingdom Hearts. Epic.

6.

Martin O'(fucking) Donnell. This is the theme for Halo 3: ODST. The Soundtrack is what makes this game. I highly recommend giving the entire soundtrack a listen. Do yourself that favor.

5.

This entire soundtrack is soo underrated. Easily one of the best video game soundtracks ever produced. This game was so far ahead of its time in terms of music. Oh it’s so good.

4.

Another game that in terms of music just blew away everybody else at the time. Stupid Random Fun fact: Only song I ever learned to play on the piano. “Hey baby. Why don’t you sit down, and let me serenade you with a little bit of  Yearnings of the Wind.”  Works every time.

3.

This song is just perfect. Just perfect. It’s so beautiful, almost magical. I could cry just listening to it (I’m so gay). This song is an perfect example of why Nobuo Uemastu is the fucking man.

2.

Mass Effect’s soundtrack fit with everything this game did perfectly. The thing that helped immerse me in this awesome universe so well and for so long was the music. Every time I hear the music I want to play the game. Every time.  This is the only game in history with a perfect soundtrack. Its flawless. For me, this is the best soundtrack ever made. Game or otherwise.

1.

OK, this is hands down the best song ever put in a game. This song is pure win. The game itself was horrible, but the song is a 10/10. If you don’t like this song you don’t have ears or a soul.

If you like this post or hate it let me know. Give me some feedback, and let me know how i’m doing. Thank You!

        I play mostly Rpg or first person shooting games, but I do play just about anything I can. Right now I am playing Fallout 3. When I finish that game, I will become the character in the next game I play. I own a WII but I don’t play it much though.

        • To anon: same here I play a lot of rpgs. I’m trying to branch out though and play genres I don’t usually play.
