Video Game Series With the Best Music

The Top Ten
1 Sonic the Hedgehog

I agree with sonic being 1 from iconic green hill to find your flame. All the vocal songs are amazing and iconic and stand the test of time like live and learn I probably listened to it 100 times never gets old to the new ones like undefeatable. Zelda will never beat sonics tracks. Also metal gear should be 2 instead of zelda because of rising revgenance which frontiers ost takes inspiration from.

THE BEST! His World, Live and Learn, Sonic 3 final boss, Sonic 2 boss theme, cosmic angel, Sonic 2 emerald hill versus, sandopolis, chemical plant, green hill zone, for true story, green light ride, reach for the stars, and all of me are just a few

SEGA's music game is on point every. Single. Time! What I'm Made of, Sonic Heroes, Escape From the City, Live and Learn, I Am All of Me, Knight of the Wind, Reach for the Stars, Endless Possibility, Seven Rings In Hand, Never Turn Back, All Hail Shadow, Dreams of an Absolution, His World, Fist Bump, and Green Light Ride. And that's just scratching the surface of all the lyrical Sonic songs! Never lose you touch with your music, SEGA!

2 Mario

The music is wacky and fun and has fantastic music, super mario bros had fantastic music then in all the other mario games, mario world,3d land, mario bros 3 just to name a few the music is what makes a mario game this deserves to be number 1 hands down.

Classic. Every Mario game has great music. From Mario Galaxy onward, they used a live orchestra, and it is truly something to behold

Mario's got the tunes you'll randomly begin humming to without even realizing you're doing it.

3 The Legend of Zelda

The best of the best in my opinion, has covered an incredible range over the series and even within individual games, there's a song for any mood you're in. The role music plays in the games through the ocarina, the wind waker etc. elevates it to a whole new level.

Catchiest music ever. I think Miyamoto is superhuman, because Legend of Zelda is perfect. Compared to Zelda, Mario is a piece of crap in terms of quality.

I think Zelda should be number on for music because their is something strange and special about the music and I can feel it.

4 Pokemon

So many great OSTs. While sword and and shield kinda sucked, the soundtrack was a absolute banger, and gen 5s was flat out amazing

Come on guys! How has this not been added yet! From cheerful Pokemon Centre music to creepy Lavender Town music this series has the best soundtrack of all time!

The wide variety of songs in the PokeĢmon franchise goes from upbeat and fun, to creepy and gloomy. It's very exciting and well written! 7/10

5 Super Smash Bros.

I like the main theme in Ultimate. It's very beautiful, but not as good as Zelda.

6 Castlevania

Sure, other franchises have good music; Castlevania is defined by it. Castlevania III included a second sound card in Japan to do the music justice. Haunted Castle is remembered fondly for introducing some of the best themes, despite being one of the worst arcade games in history.

Ocarina of time doesn't even use the Zelda theme.

Definitely some of, if not the best music I've ever heard in a video game. Castlevania games sure are filled with amazing music that makes you want to go through Dracula's castle and whip the big bad man himself back to his grave.

This series has some of the best music gaming HISTORY! I'd advise anyone who wants to have multiple eargasms listen to Symphony of the NIght's soundtrack

7 Halo

Halo is really great because it challenged what one would think of as sci-fi shooter music. By Halo 2, everything was recorded live, and the soundtrack is truly amazing from there. Halo 3 ODST goes even further and uses elements of jazz in a sci-fi shooter.

How is halo not number 1? It has the most awe inspiring and chill inducing music of all time.

Oh, #12? This is just sad.

8 Metroid

From the depths of Brinstar to another fight with a dubious doppleganger, Metroid's music continuously encompasses the mystery and action of the franchise.

9 Mega Man

(I consider this series different to the classic series). Whilst very different to the jumpy melodies of the classic series this series goes for a more rock oriented sound which fits well with the darker tone of the series.

Almost every game has god tier a soundtrack. Mega Man 3, Mega Man 4, Mega Man & Bass (GBA), Mega Man 9, Mega Man 10, every Mega Man X game, Mega Man Zero 2, Mega Man Zero 3 (personal best sountrack in any game), Mega Man ZX, and Mega Man Battle Network 3 are the best examples.

This should be number 1. All of these other series have good music but I think they can't even compare to Mega Man. Sonic and Zelda are close, but Mega Man is the best

10 Final Fantasy

Absolutely stunning in every entry. Music that truly encompasses situation, environment and story every second of the games.

Come on this is the god of soundtracks!

The Contenders
11 Kingdom Hearts

The main theme of the series is the most emotional song I've ever heard. And the same goes for the rest of the soundtrack.

The best music's ever

Why is it not no.1

12 Batman: Arkham
13 Kirby

Are you kidding me? This series' music is awesome!

14 The Elder Scrolls

Unrivaled in terms of setting an atmosphere, the vibiest soundtracks there are. I think it being less in your face than your average game OST leads to it being somewhat overlooked but it excels at what it does.

I think the main strength of this soundtrack is establishing an atmosphere. It's is great to put on in the background of something.

15 Saint's Row
16 Red Dead
17 Donkey Kong
18 Medal of Honor
19 Grand Theft Auto
20 Pikmin
21 Pokemon Mystery Dungeon

Why is this so low? The theme music will pop into my head and I can't get it out because it is so good.

22 Undertale

The Undertale soundtrack is the best! Some of the music iconic (like megalovania) that even people who don't know the game know them! And a lot of the songs have a whole heap of emotion such as Hopes and Dreams! Other pieces of music just have really catchy tunes like Ghost Fight. Overall, the Undertale music is great!

Every melody that has been written for this game is just perfect. Every instrument that plays the melodies is just the right instrument. And the smart usage of leitmotifs make up for the emotional masterpiece that Undertale's soundtrack is. It is just perfect.

An indie developer put out Megalovania? A song that can sound amazing not matter what you do to it? Yes, yes it did

23 Mafia
24 Minecraft

Why is this so low?! I keep humming to otherside and dance to Pigstep! The old one was tbh kinda bad but the new ones are slightly better. But still Minecraft music is the GOAT

25 Metal Gear

By far the best.
