Top 10 Best Music Video Games

All the rhythm based video games the world has seen, and the best of them.
The Top Ten
1 Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock

This series fueled my love for rock and metal. And the third game is my favorite. It is a classic that never dies for me. I still play PS2 games in 2023.

I got this game the day I got my first Xbox 360. I was so confused about what this game was and how it was played. When I first started playing, I sucked at it. But after a while of practice, I got much better - like I was really learning to play guitar. This is the one game on this list that I still haven't beaten on Expert. I can never get past Before I Forget. It's a real pain. In short, this game is a masterpiece for its music choice and its difficulty. I love it, and you should too.

2 Rock Band 2

This game is neck-and-neck with Guitar Hero III. I think this is slightly better. It is definitely better than Guitar Hero 5, which is still a great game.

Yes! You can go from being a small-town local band to becoming the biggest band in the world!

Great songs. Great tour mode. Definitely one of my favorites!

3 Guitar Hero Metallica

Guitar Hero: Metallica is the most heavy-metal game ever played. It has the best of Metallica's songs. It's unlike the other Guitar Hero games. I don't even know why this is the third one on the list. This should be the first!

4 Guitar Hero Smash Hits
5 Rock Band
6 Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock
7 Guitar Hero 2
8 The Beatles: Rock Band

A great, easy-going rhythm game with awesome graphics based on the Beatles' music.

9 Guitar Hero 5

The song selection on Guitar Hero 5 is so diverse. The game developers clearly put some effort into deciding what was going into the product, which I very much appreciated.

Best music game, seriously! It has Looks That Kill, Lithium, You Give Love a Bad Name, and many more awesome rock hits! It's way better than Rock Band 2!

10 Guitar Hero
The Contenders
11 Osu!

Amazing game. Definitely should be at least in the top 5.

12 UmJammer Lammy

Calling this game's main campaign the craziest thing I've ever played would be a bit of an understatement.

13 Guitar Hero Aerosmith
14 Dance Dance Revolution Supernova

Great music and characters. Diverse rhythmic levels. Really fun too, especially if your friends are rhythmically challenged.

15 Rock Band 3

This has to be the next best game. I mean, it has pro instruments to help me become an actual pro drummer, guitarist, keyboard player, or even singer. This game has some good songs, but it is life-changing and has helped me in my career (in REAL LIFE!).

This is by far the greatest music game of all time.

16 Deemo

This should be at least around the top 10. Really good rhythm game! Come on, guys, vote for this game.

17 HarmoKnight
18 Gitaroo Man
19 Brutal Legend
20 Vib-Ribbon
21 Just Dance
22 Guitar Hero World Tour

Guitar Hero World Tour is the best, extremely closely followed by Metallica.

23 Bust A Groove

PS1 rhythm-based game from '98. Awesome characters and music. Great for people of any rhythmic level.

24 Green Day: Rock Band
25 Parappa the Rapper

Without this game, all of these games above it might not even exist.
