Best video game soundtracks


I ♥ Haters
In your opinion, what are some of the best video game soundtracks out there?

For me, in terms of retro games, nothing will ever beat Streets of Rage 2. I just realized recently while listening to Childish Gambino's Camp album that he sampled some of the OST from this game for his tracks. That was actually a pretty neat easter egg.

For more recent games, I'd go with Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number. I still haven't played this game because top down shooters aren't really my thing, but my boyfriend pretty much plays it every night before bed so I've had a chance to actually listen to the kick ass soundtrack before bed. Dust is an amazing song for this game. I ended up loving the soundtrack so much that I have a separate playlist for it on my phone.

I listed mine in the Top 5 thread. I'll re-list them here in order:

Perfect Dark End Credits

Perfect Dark - End Credits

Chrono Trigger Lavos Battle 1

Let's Listen: Chrono Trigger - World Revolution, Lavos Battle (Extended)

Mario Kart 64 End Credits

Mario Kart 64 End Credits: No Border with Wide View

Chrono Trigger Corridors of Time

Corridors of Time - Chrono Trigger Music Extended

Battletoads and Double Dragon: The Ultimate Team Intro Theme

Battletoads & Double Dragon Intro (SNES Introduction)

But my tastes are biased because I prioritize with stuff I can use in video projects.

I might go on and add 5 more if I can do it without holding up the page loading time with full videos here that I don't need.

Some of my favorites:

Probably my first favorite game soundtrack

Most recently, I've realized how good the music is in this game

But I think my all-time favorite would have to be..

Also, honorable mention to the Fallout 3 and 4 radio stations. Mostly not music made for the game but still incredible.


I agree with Ori and the Blind Forest. Some other faves of mine are the Uncharted Series, Journey, Fallout 4 and so many others. I can't even think now. I might post again later when I remember more.

In particular, this track from Fallout 4 is one I never tire of.



Hotline Miami and it's not even close. I'd give an honorable mention to The Last of Us and Uncharted 2.
