Video Game Series With the Best Music

The Top Ten
1 Sonic the Hedgehog Sonic the Hedgehog, trademarked Sonic The Hedgehog, is the title character and protagonist of the Sonic the Hedgehog series released by SEGA, as well as numerous spin-off comics, five animated shows, and an animated OVA.

Heck yeah! The sonic soundtracks are amazing! I love Open your heart from sonic adventure, Live and Learn from sonic adventure 2, Reach for the Stars from sonic colors, and Fist Bump from Sonic forces. Next to Minecraft and Zelda, the sonic soundtracks are the best.

I'm gonna be honest: no how controversial this franchise gets, the music is by far some of the best I've heard. Even the worst entries to the series get me hooked purely because of their soundtracks. No skips, period.

I love the main theme of sonic adventure know as Open Your Heart!

Escape from the city is the best video game song ever.

2 The Legend of Zelda

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.

Always a beautiful piece of music to accompany every discovery in this beloved franchise.

I have the CDs from the 25th and 30th anniversary in my car, enough said.

3 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.

I like it. I don't know what else to say. 5/10

4 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.

5 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

Doesn't get better than this.

6 Super Smash Bros.

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

7 Pokemon

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

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!

Should be top 5.

8 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!

9 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.

10 Mega Man

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

(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.

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

12 Metal Gear

By far the best.

13 Kirby
14 Donkey Kong
15 Pikmin Pikmin Product Image
16 Streets of Rage
17 Pokemon Mystery Dungeon
18 Mortal Kombat
19 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

It gives me a strong determination and it's a banger I don't get why its not in the 10 3

20 Grand Theft Auto
21 The Elder Scrolls

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

22 God of War God of War Product Image
23 Ace Attorney
24 Shin Megami Tensei

Reminder that Persona falls under this entry. Not sure what it's doing so low on the list

Persona 5 made jazz good again... that is all

25 Earthworm Jim

This game had one hell of a soundtrack if nothing else.
