Video Game Series With the Best Music

The Top Ten

1 The Legend of Zelda

Always a beautiful piece of music to accompany every discovery in this beloved franchise.

I have the CDs from the 25th and 30th anniversary in my car, enough said.

I think Zelda should be number on for music because their is something strange and special about the music and I can feel it.

Catchiest music ever. I think Miyamoto is superhuman, because Legend of Zelda is perfect. Compared to Zelda, Mario is a piece of crap in terms of quality.

2 Sonic the Hedgehog Sonic the Hedgehog, trademarked Sonic The Hedgehog, is the title character and protagonist of the Sonic the Hedgehog series released by SEGA, as well as numerous spin-off comics, five animated shows, and an animated OVA.

I'm sorry It doesn't matter by Crush 40 makes me feel the adventure in Sonic Adventure

Escape from the city is the best video game song ever.

Sonic have amazing and epic music and he's not first?

Ocean Base Act 1 for the win

3 Mario

Classic. Every Mario game has great music. From Mario Galaxy onward, they used a live orchestra, and it is truly something to behold

The music is wacky and fun and has fantastic music, super mario bros had fantastic music then in all the other mario games, mario world,3d land, mario bros 3 just to name a few the music is what makes a mario game this deserves to be number 1 hands down.

All I can say is: bob-om battlefield (Mario 64)

The Mario RPG games 100% of the way!

4 Castlevania

Definitely some of, if not the best music I've ever heard in a video game. Castlevania games sure are filled with amazing music that makes you want to go through Dracula's castle and whip the big bad man himself back to his grave.

Sure, other franchises have good music; Castlevania is defined by it. Castlevania III included a second sound card in Japan to do the music justice. Haunted Castle is remembered fondly for introducing some of the best themes, despite being one of the worst arcade games in history.

Ocarina of time doesn't even use the Zelda theme.

Doesn't get better than this.

Beats sonic for sure

5 Pokemon

Come on guys! How has this not been added yet! From cheerful Pokemon Centre music to creepy Lavender Town music this series has the best soundtrack of all time!

Two words about the best music: RED'S THEME

Simply iconic

Should be top 5.

6 Final Fantasy

Absolutely stunning in every entry. Music that truly encompasses situation, environment and story every second of the games.

Simply amazing

Come on this is the god of soundtracks!

That Uematsu ugh so good, if you're voting this check this out: https://www.youtube.com/watch? v=GpOo_OzgxOE.

7 Metroid

From the depths of Brinstar to another fight with a dubious doppleganger, Metroid's music continuously encompasses the mystery and action of the franchise.

The Brinstar/Maridia and Lower Norfair themes from Super Metroid

Enough said

8 Halo

Halo is really great because it challenged what one would think of as sci-fi shooter music. By Halo 2, everything was recorded live, and the soundtrack is truly amazing from there. Halo 3 ODST goes even further and uses elements of jazz in a sci-fi shooter.

How is halo not number 1? It has the most awe inspiring and chill inducing music of all time.

Oh, #12? This is just sad.

Definitely #1

9 Mega Man

This should be number 1. All of these other series have good music but I think they can’t even compare to Mega Man. Sonic and Zelda are close, but Mega Man is the best

(I consider this series different to the classic series). Whilst very different to the jumpy melodies of the classic series this series goes for a more rock oriented sound which fits well with the darker tone of the series.

Almost every game has god tier a soundtrack. Mega Man 3, Mega Man 4, Mega Man & Bass (GBA), Mega Man 9, Mega Man 10, every Mega Man X game, Mega Man Zero 2, Mega Man Zero 3 (personal best sountrack in any game), Mega Man ZX, and Mega Man Battle Network 3 are the best examples.

Mega man 1 has to have the best NES music

10 Kingdom Hearts

These games have such a great soundtrack, my preference is for the non-disney music

The main theme of the series is the most emotional song I've ever heard. And the same goes for the rest of the soundtrack.

The best music's ever

(Disregard KH3)

The Contenders

11 Metal Gear

By far the best.

12 Earthbound

Have you heard the music from Earthbound, completely unique. Search 'Earthbound - Your Name Please' on YouTube.

The Mother series has great music. Some examples being Kraken of the Sea, Snowman from Mother 3, and Pollyanna from Mother.

13 Donkey Kong

Donkey Kong Country, man...

14 Ace Attorney
15 Kirby

2 words:Masked Dedede. Enough said.

02 Battle, Crystal Fields, Hyper Zone, and C-R-O-W-N-E-D. Yes.

16 Mortal Kombat
17 Streets of Rage
18 Super Smash Bros.
19 Grand Theft Auto
20 Undertale

An indie developer put out Megalovania? A song that can sound amazing not matter what you do to it? Yes, yes it did

21 God of War
22 Earthworm Jim

This game had one hell of a soundtrack if nothing else.

Need I mention "Use Your Head"?

23 The Elder Scrolls

I think the main strength of this soundtrack is establishing an atmosphere. It's is great to put on in the background of something.

24 Touhou Project

Search up Touhou themes on YouTube

25 Danganronpa Danganronpa: The Animation is a 2013 anime television series based on Spike Chunsoft's murder mystery video game, Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc.

Sadly gets overshadowed by how much flipping dialogue there is in the game

26 Red Dead
27 Crash Bandicoot

Gets even better in the remaster

28 Ys
29 Shin Megami Tensei

Persona 5 made jazz good again... that is all

The series has kick-ass music

30 Star Fox
31 Ratchet & Clank

Some of the best is here!

32 Portal
33 Fire Emblem
34 Command & Conquer
