Video Game Series With the Best Music


The Top Ten

1 The Legend of Zelda

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.

... Tough between Zelda and FF, for me!

Whoever saying that the legend of Zelda serie is better than the Mario serie is an serious internet troll

2 Sonic the Hedgehog 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.

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

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

Ocean Base Act 1 for the win - faiyazmurshed

2 words. His World.

3 Mario

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

Bloody tears kicks rear. - kutzs96

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

5 Final Fantasy

Come on this is the god of soundtracks!

That Uematsu ugh so good, if you're voting this check this out: v=GpOo_OzgxOE.

6 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

Should be top 5.

7 Metroid

The Brinstar/Maridia and Lower Norfair themes from Super Metroid

Enough said - xandermartin98

8 Mega Man

(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.

Mega man 1 has to have the best NES music

So many different amazing songs

9 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.

The best music's ever

10 Metal Gear

By far the best. - HeavyDonkeyKong

The Newcomers

? Fire Emblem
? Shin Megami Tensei

The series has kick-ass music

The Contenders

11 Donkey Kong

Donkey Kong Country, man...

12 Halo

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.

13 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.

14 Kirby

2 words:Masked Dedede. Enough said. - Garythesnail

15 Ace Attorney
16 Mortal Kombat
17 Streets of Rage
18 Super Smash Bros.
19 Earthworm Jim

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

Need I mention "Use Your Head"? - xandermartin98

20 Grand Theft Auto
21 Danganronpa 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 - xandermartin98

22 Touhou Project

Search up Touhou themes on YouTube

23 Undertale
24 Star Fox
25 Ratchet & Clank
