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

By fare the best. Ocarina has great music, but nothing gets close to Undertale on this one...maybe only Mario Galaxy can question this. But anyway, Toby Fox did an amazing job with this game's soundtrack, every song is gonna be stuck in your head for a very long time. Also, many tracks are remixes of previous tracks but still somehow manage to feel completely different and have their own identity.

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.

I'm not an Undertale fanboy, but I have to say, the soundtrack is gorgeous.

3 Doom

I listen to this almost everyday like normal music. This music is a outstanding tribute to the original at all glory!

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

BFG Division, at dooms gate, rip and tear,
Much better than Undertale - Not_A_Weeaboo

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 Super Mario Galaxy

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

Galaxy and galaxy 2 are great games. With a great soundtrack too. - Ilikegames

7 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

8 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.

A superb soundtrack by Hans Zimmer. Fits the game perfectly and enhances the awesome campaign. Love it!

This soundtrack is overrated.

39 Journey

AMAZING! Simply epic in every sense of the word this games soundtrack grabs you pulls you in and never EVER lets go! The soundtrack is emotionally engrossing just the main title theme alone was so beautiful that I cried a little. It's so good that it's the first video game to ever be nominated for a GRAMMY giving video games the respect that they deserve.
