Video Games With the Best Soundtracks

The Top Ten

1 The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

Please. OoT is known for its amazing soundtrack.

Everybody bend your knees to gaming anthem

Hyrule Fields, Kokiri Forest, Gerudo Valley, Song of Storms are all classics from this masterpiece of a game!

Twilight princess crushes Ocarina's music.
The soundtrack in twilight princess is 6 hours long and is very varied, complex and has more emotional weght. It defines adventure. Majora's Mask comes after, adapted perfectly to the game and very emotional too.

2 Undertale

How does Undertale manage to get on every list in existence? - FluffyBanana

How does ocarina of time manages to exist in every list with the titles good and video game? - Aguythatpeopleignores

I can't remember one song from Ocarina of Time. I can remember every song from Undertale.

There's almost no doubt about this one. It uses the right songs for the right people, most notably in my opinion Asgore and Sans.

The songs really fit the moments perfectly. 10/10 - galaco

3 Doom

Heavy Metal at it's best. It makes the player to play more Agressive and fast paced with. - Aguythatpeopleignores

4 Shadow of the Colossus

Epic, grand, magical and beautiful. One of the best soundtracks in gaming.

5 Super Smash Bros. for Wii U
6 Silent Hill 2

The music for this game creates an atmosphere you don't get anywhere else. It ranges from disturbing and eerie tracks, to breathtaking and haunting tracks. It's truly something to listen too

An absolute masterpiece of a soundtrack. To the people saying Undertale's soundtrack is the best in any game ever, I challenge them to produce the same opinion after listening to the beautiful ambient tracks this game has to offer. Theme of Laura is my favorite song of all time, and there isn't a bad song in the game. Akira Yamaoka has yet to outdo himself with this game, and I doubt he ever will. The only other soundtrack to any game that could possibly compete in terms of beauty and ambience could perhaps be the Last of Us. But even then, it has yet to win out.

7 Super Mario Galaxy

Very beautiful soundtrack. This is one of the best video games I've ever played.

Best. Game. Soundtrack. Ever. Fin. - Vic21102

Better than the original Mario, why isn't it #1? - LarkwingFlight

Best soundtrack ever. Stop complaining - MaxPap

8 The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
9 Final Fantasy VI
10 Skyrim

It was a tie between this and Life Is Strange for me - HollyRolo

I can not think of game that brings back more memories just by the music then this one! Skyrim is by far the best RPG in my opinion and have not seen another that could offer so much for its time. Each time I hear a song I know exactly where I am. This game is amazing and so is its soundtrack it deserves the number 1 spot. HAIL SITHIS PRAISE TALOS! - VvEquinoXvV

The Contenders

11 Super Mario Bros.
12 Streets of Rage 2

For a Mega Drive game the depth its soundtrack has is incredible and timeless. - Entranced98

Easily the best - Strobo

13 Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
14 The Last of Us

That song at the end gave me butterflies

15 Super Mario 64
16 Beyond: Two Souls
