Nintendo Games With the Best Soundtrack

One of the main reasons I love Nintendo is because of their AMAZING soundtracks. Today, I'll be making a list with my absolute favorite soundtracks of Nintendo. Enjoy!
The Top Ten
1 Super Mario Galaxy

While Ocarina of Time and Metroid do have good soundtracks and gameplay, they have been done plenty of times (in fact, almost every action game today is inspired by OOT). But Galaxy had never been done before, and hasn't been competed with ever since. This was one of the first orchestrated Nintendo pieces, and it has not gotten old.

Super Mario Galaxy is without a doubt, one of the best if not, the absolute best soundtrack in the Video Game Industry. Some of their tracks include, Gusty Garden, Good Egg, Stardust Road (Known as Space Junk) and my favorite, the credits.

2 The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

The Legend of Zelda has had some good soundtracks since the beginning, but this game took the good tracks and amped them up. Some tracks include, Saria's Song, Bolero of Fire, Gerudo Valley and Song of Storms.

3 Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Out of all the Smash Brothers in the series, this one is the best. I know Sm4sh had more tracks, but this is still the best one out of all of them.

4 The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask

Like Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask also has tracks of its own tracks and moments. Tracks include, Final Hours, Song of Healing and some old songs from Ocarina but sort of remixed.

5 Super Mario Galaxy 2

Like the first game, this had some original tracks of its own. Some of them were really enjoyable like, Puzzle Plank, Sky Station, Fleet Glide, and Bowser's Galaxy Generator.

6 Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U

This game a lot more music than Brawl. I know, Final Destination or Opening theme wasn't as good as Brawl, but it's not cool saying that they suck. Every Smash Bros game is epic. We enjoy the gameplay, not the looks of the opening or music.

7 The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

Another Awesome Orchestrated Soundtrack! (Wow! They really nailed it with the Wii didn't they!) It has some of the best songs in the Zelda series, such as "Skyloft," "The Sky," and many more! It also does a great job of conveying emotion, and setting the tone the whole game through! Now it might be that I'm a little biased toward Skyward Sword, but IMHO this soundtrack tops Galaxy any day, though only by a small margin. 9.5/10

Whoever keeps adding them, thank you for your support for this list.

8 Xenoblade Chronicles

How did I forget this!? The music in this game is epic. Especially Gaur Plains, and You Will Know Our Names

9 Super Mario 64

I think we can all agree this music started the good music in Nintendo. Some tracks include Bomb-omb Battefield, Dock Dock Bay, Bowser's Trap Theme, and the Ending theme.

10 Kid Icarus: Uprising

The songs attribute great pacing to each chapter, the final chapter certainly proves this

The Contenders
11 The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

Trust me guys I know good music when I hear it. This is galaxy should be 1st and second

12 Mother 3

Why this isn't higher amazes me. With this continuation of the cult class "Earthbound" the game greatly expands on its battle system with its amazing soundtrack, and this doesn't even include songs outside of battle. One of the greatest soundtracks of all time, better than OOT in my opinion.

13 Super Smash Bros. Melee

This game started all the good music in Smash Bros. Tracks include, Final Destination, Temple Theme, Pokemon Main Theme, Pokemon Battle, and Boss Theme.

14 Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddys Kong Quest
15 Undertale
16 Mario Kart: Double Dash
17 Fire Emblem: Awakening
18 Kirby's Adventure
19 Super Metroid
20 Pokémon Platinum
21 Metroid Prime

Absolutely stunning music that fits the environment of every location of the game.

22 Earthbound
23 Kirby Super Star
24 The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker
25 Mario Kart 7

Honestly, I don't know why I put this on the list. Tracks include Maple Treeway, Rainbow Road, Koopa Cape, and Rosalina's Ice World.
