Video Game Series With the Best Music

The Top Ten
1 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

I love the main theme of sonic adventure know as Open Your Heart!

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

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

2 The Legend of Zelda

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.

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

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.

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 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.

5 Castlevania

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.

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.

This series has some of the best music gaming HISTORY! I'd advise anyone who wants to have multiple eargasms listen to Symphony of the NIght's soundtrack

Doesn't get better than this.

6 Super Smash Bros.
7 Final Fantasy

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

Come on this is the god of soundtracks!

That Uematsu ugh so good.

Simply amazing

8 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!

Should be top 5.

Two words about the best music: RED'S THEME

Simply iconic

9 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

10 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

The Contenders
11 Kingdom Hearts

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.

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

The best music's ever

12 Metal Gear

By far the best.

13 Kirby

2 words:Masked Dedede. Enough said.

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

14 Donkey Kong

Donkey Kong Country, man...

15 Pikmin Pikmin Product Image
16 Streets of Rage
17 Mortal Kombat
18 Pokemon Mystery Dungeon
19 God of War God of War Product Image
20 Grand Theft Auto
21 Undertale

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

22 Ace Attorney
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 Earthworm Jim

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

Need I mention "Use Your Head"?
