Top Ten Video Game Opening Songs

Sure we play video games for, well. The game. But a game with a great opening is often remembered!

The Top Ten

1 Simple and Clean - Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep

The prequel to Kingdom Hearts has a stunning opening, and I can fondly remember it from the top of my head in a second.

2 His World - Sonic '06

I admit, the game had so many things wrong with it. But the theme was not one of them. The song is catchy and easy to get stuck in your head.

3 Twister - The World Ends With You

A great game = a great opening! The words may be hard to make out, but it is still easy to memorize it!

4 Sanctuary - Kingdom Hearts 2

The song has a hidden dark mood, which really sets the tone for the beginning of the game.

6 Open Your Heart - Sonic Adventure
7 Reach for the Stars - Sonic Colors
8 Knight of the Wind - Sonic and the Black Knight
