Top 10 Video Games of the 2020s with the Best Soundtrack

Video games have been improving constantly over the years, not just graphically but also when it comes to in-game sounds and music. Long gone are the days of 8-bit music. Now developers hire composers and artists to make their soundtracks. As the 2020s decade progresses, let's rank the video games of the decade with the best soundtrack. Of course, feel free to add games that were released during this decade if you feel they deserve a spot on this list.
The Top Ten
1 Hades

Hades is the roguelike dungeon crawler that took the gaming world by storm in 2020. The soundtrack, made by composer Darren Korb, fits perfectly with the game and definitely contributed to the game's success. Gameplay and story always need a good soundtrack to accompany them.

2 Final Fantasy VII Remake

The soundtrack also received a remake, just like the game, and many songs are orchestrated versions of the original tracks. Overall, it's a great soundtrack and was many gamers' favorite in 2020.

3 Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy

This game received a lot of praise in 2021 for its soundtrack. In fact, it's pretty much what everyone on the internet was excited about, especially at the Game Awards.

4 Ori and the Will of the Wisps

This game has a beautiful soundtrack, and not many people seem to have brought much attention to it. Such is the life of most indie games.

5 Ghost of Tsushima

Ghost of Tsushima was not only loved for its swordplay and beautiful visuals but also for its beautiful soundtrack, which really meshes well with the game's other components.

6 Resident Evil 3: Remake

The remake has some new tracks, but most of the tracks are remastered versions of the original ones.

7 Resident Evil Village

The soundtrack of Resident Evil Village helps create tension and sets the mood for the entire game. Some of the more important segments of the game also have standout tracks.

8 Halo Infinite

The grand return of Halo has been met with nothing but praise for the soundtrack from series fans. Some Halo fans think Infinite has the best soundtrack in the series.

9 Doom Eternal

Doom Eternal's soundtrack was made by Mick Gordon, like its predecessor, Doom 2016. While there apparently were issues between Id Software and Gordon, many fans enjoy the soundtrack.

10 Animal Crossing: New Horizons
The Contenders
11 Mario's Mystery Meat

Cursed Cathedral and the game's remake of Tail Cave are utterly perfect, especially as the theme songs for Extremely Polluted China and Extremely Cold and Depressing Russia.

12 Stray
13 The Last of Us Part II

The Last of Us Part 2 was a very controversial game when it was released in 2020, but the one thing most gamers took no issue with was its soundtrack. The music was composed by the same person who made the soundtrack for the original game, Gustavo Santaolalla. Overall, the music fits very well with the atmosphere of this game.

14 Sackboy: A Big Adventure
15 Mario Party Superstars
16 Omori

It's the best. It's everything you'd expect from an Earthbound-inspired RPG and more. Even hearing the soundtrack after playing the game transports you to the place of lonely depression you felt as you played.

17 A Plague Tale: Requiem
18 God of War Ragnarök
19 Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl
20 Elden Ring
