Top 10 Video Game Soundtracks that are Better Than the Games that They Belong To

The Top Ten
1 Chrono Trigger's soundtrack Chrono Trigger's soundtrack Product Image

While the game is incredibly overrated and shallow, and is completely too easy, its music is so utterly perfect that it basically is completely impossible to over-rate.

2 Undertale's soundtrack Undertale's soundtrack Product Image

While the game kind of is even more "just okay" than Mother 3, its music quite-easily is even MORE amazing than Mother 3's.

3 Mother 3's soundtrack Mother 3's soundtrack Product Image

While the game largely is "just okay" in both its story-telling department and its gameplay department, its music is incredibly-excessively epic and detailed.

4 Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest's soundtrack Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest's soundtrack Product Image

While the game largely has the same "graphics over gameplay" problem that DKC 1 has, its music quite-easily is even MORE atmospheric and beautiful than DKC 1's.

5 Castlevania: Symphony of the Night's soundtrack Castlevania: Symphony of the Night's soundtrack Product Image

While the game itself objectively is nowhere near being as good as Super Metroid, its music is SO much more complex and interesting than Super Metroid's.

6 Mega Man 2's soundtrack Mega Man 2's soundtrack Product Image

It might not really be Mega Man's best game (it mostly just is one of MM's easiest games), but it DEFINITELY has one of Mega Man's best soundtracks.

7 Xenogears's soundtrack Xenogears's soundtrack Product Image

The game honestly is even more boring and pretentious than Final Fantasy VII, but its soundtrack arguably is even MORE epic than Final Fantasy VII's.

8 Mario's Mystery Meat's soundtrack

The game itself actually is quite good for being a result of a bunch of memes getting thrown into a blender, but its soundtrack contains Cursed Cathedral, Jesus Bleibet Meine Freude, AND pieces of the best parts of quite a few other video game soundtracks (Metroid 1's Brinstar, Earthworm Jim 2's Puppy Love, Final Fantasy 5's Beyond The Deep Blue Sea, Earthbound's New Age Retro Hippie, Super Mario World's version of Link's Awakening's Tail Cave, etc).

9 Sonic the Hedgehog 2006's soundtrack

Pretty much every Sonic game should be on this list.

10 Final Fantasy VII's soundtrack Final Fantasy VII's soundtrack Product Image

Despite how much of a pretentious and utterly overrated train wreck the game is, its music is absolutely amazing and is some of Final Fantasy's best music.
