The Top Ten
1 Live and Learn - Sonic Adventure 2
2 Want You Gone - Portal 2

There is some weird feeling I get listening to this. It's just good in a way. I don't know how to describe it. Great song to bring closure to the series.

Honestly one of the most memorable songs in video game history, in my opinion at least.

It wraps up the game in the best fashion I have ever seen.

3 Megalovania - Undertale

It's everywhere now - Smash Bros, some rhythm games, even the Spanish version of First Dates! Only a song that good is added so much.

The entire soundtrack for Undertale is phenomenal in my opinion, but Megalovania certainly sticks out among them.

Megalovania and Death by Glamour are two of the best songs from this game, and Megalovania definitely hits top ten!

4 Zelda Theme - The Legend of Zelda
5 Jump Up, Super Star! - Super Mario Odyssey

This song, holy crap, this just gets me moving. It's amazing!

6 You Will Know Our Names - Xenoblade Chronicles
7 Gerudo Valley - The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

Okay. Yeah, the Portal songs are automatically the best, and I totally agree, but I love, love, love Gerudo Valley. I would listen to this while I did my school work. I'd just run to Gerudo Fortress and have it on for like, 5 hours.

Oh wait. I still do that. Anyway, this is the best song ever.

And also Love's Vagrant. Smiles to those who even know what that song is. (Sob)

8 Still Alive - Portal

I like both this and Want You Gone equally. But since the latter is already number one, I will vote for this to get it higher.

It was either this or Want You Gone for number one. It's still good, but Want You Gone is a tiny bit better.

Although Want You Gone is awesome, this takes the cake as the better song, pun genuinely unintended.

9 Super Smash Bros Brawl Theme
10 Reach for the Stars - Sonic Colors
The Contenders
11 What I'm Made of - Sonic Heroes

Second best Sonic song ever. Knight of the Wind is the best one, but if that's not an option for whatever reason, this works.

12 Don't Speak Her Name - Fire Emblem: Awakening

One of the most beautiful but sad soundtracks I have ever heard. Truly a masterpiece of a song.

Combines the anger the characters feel with the sorrow of the situation. Awesome.

13 Lost Woods - The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
14 In the Final - Mario & Luigi Bowser's Inside Story

This is the best final boss music to accompany the best final boss in any Mario game.

15 Grand Finale - Mario & Luigi Bower's Inside Story

"Thunder and lightning everywhere, yet I am having chortles!
And now my burger's dripping ketchup and the blood of mortals!
I'll show you something that'll make you wish you were a waffle!
The fabulously fatal fury of your favorite Fawful!"

I think we've just found a new contender for the best VGM lyrics ever made. I wish I understood why they are so underrated despite the immense popularity of the music itself.

16 Fist Bump - Sonic Forces

Pretty good song, not the best Sonic song out there but definitely one of the best.

17 Lego Marvel City Theme
18 Engaging the Enemy - Xenoblade Chronicles
19 Simple and Clean - Kingdom Hearts
20 Mario Theme - Super Mario Bros.

Not my favorite (the Dire, Dire Docks theme from Mario 64 is my favorite) but the Super Mario Bros. theme is the most iconic video game song ever.

21 Dark Pit's Theme - Kid Icarus: Uprising
22 Zinnia - Pokemon Oras

I'm honestly surprised that this isn't in the top ten. This is easily the best battle theme in all of Pokemon!

23 Buoy Base - Super Mario Galaxy
24 Vampire Killer - Castlevania
25 Champion Lance/Red - Pokemon Heartgold/Soulsilver
