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 Super Mario Galaxy Product Image

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.

Music in Nintendo Games was already good, but Mario Galaxy came in with an entire orchestra. Gusty Garden, Melty Molten, Family, Good Egg, etc. This is not only the best game soundtrack, but the best game, period.

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.

This is definitely some great music. But it's definitely not the best. Just look at Kirby Canvas Curse... That's some extraordinary music.

2 The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Product Image

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 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.

4 Super Mario 64 Super Mario 64 Product Image

The Soundtrack For Super Mario 64 Matches All The Settings

Super Mario Galaxy Doesn’t Have That

The Soundtrack For Mario 64 Is Better Than The Soundtrack For Mario Galaxy

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.

The Ghost House Theme Sounds Creepy Which Makes Sense, The Fighting Themes Sound Like Battle Themes, When You Defeat Bowser For The Last Time The Victory Theme Sounds Like A Victory Theme And Everything Else Matches What’s Happening So That’s Why Mario 64 Has The Best Sound Track And This Was When Koji Kondo Still Made The Music

5 Super Smash Bros. Brawl Super Smash Bros. Brawl Product Image

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.

6 The Legend of Zelda The Legend of Zelda Product Image
7 Super Smash Bros. Melee Super Smash Bros. Melee Product Image

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

8 Mario Kart: Double Dash Mario Kart: Double Dash Product Image
9 The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker Product Image
10 Batman: The Video Game Batman: The Video Game Product Image
The Contenders
11 Super Mario Galaxy 2 Super Mario Galaxy 2 Product Image

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.

13 Perfect Dark Perfect Dark Product Image
14 Super Mario Bros. Super Mario Bros. Product Image
15 GoldenEye 007 GoldenEye 007 Product Image
16 Xenoblade Chronicles Xenoblade Chronicles Product Image

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

17 Super Metroid Super Metroid Product Image

The Brinstar and Maridia themes, enough said

(also, Lower Norfair and Crateria Phase 2)

18 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.

19 Kid Icarus: Uprising

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

Simply dozens of memorable and amazing tracks

20 Super Mario World Super Mario World Product Image
21 The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Product Image

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

22 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.

23 The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess Product Image

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

24 Tecmo Super Bowl Tecmo Super Bowl Product Image
25 Undertale
