Top Ten Video Game Series With the Best Soundtracks


The Top Ten

1 The Legend of Zelda

Great soundtracks. The Wind Waker is my favorite.

Need we say more?

2 Super Smash Bros.

Super Smash Bros. Melee is the best.

I love all the Smash soundtracks!

3 Metal Gear

Just played Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance and I have to say the soundtrack was BOSS!

4 Halo

This series has some of the most amazing soundtracks ever with Reach and Halo 4 being my favorites.

The best soundtracks from the Halo series are hands down the first ones (Halo CE, Halo 2, Halo 3) but of course every Halo game has flawless soundtracks.

5 Castlevania

The fantastic Castlevania games are accompanied by gorgeous and atmospheric first-rate soundtracks. - DamnFineCupOfCoffee

6 Bioshock

Excellent all the way and Cohen's masterpiece is truly a masterpiece. - DamnFineCupOfCoffee

7 Metroid

Epic, intense and ambient. The soundtracks fits the games perfectly. - DamnFineCupOfCoffee

8 Resident Evil

So scary and good music.

9 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.

Why is this low it has awesome hard rock and metal music and other stuff to go with the fast paced action.

I'm going for a walk and when I get back this better be higher

I love Sonic Advance 2!
