Video Games With the Best Soundtracks

The Top Ten

1 The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Product Image

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!

What kind of whack ass list is this where LOZ isn't at least top 5, especially for soundtracks, something LOZ is famous for.

2 Undertale

There is no denial, Undertale got some real good soundtracks.

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.
(OF COURSE I'M JUST SAYING I THINK THIS GAME HAS THE BEST SOUNDTRACK, I'M NOT SAYING IT'S THE BEST GAME EVER)

Honestly one of my favourite sound tracks, you literally can't dislike the music, it's the same with Animal Crossing, just such nice tunes.

I can't remember the music from Ocarina of Time.

I can from Undertale

3 Doom Doom Product Image

Doom 2016 got som bloody badass soundtracks. But I think Doom Eternal beat Doom 2016. It should be in the top 10 already like damn

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.

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

4 Super Mario Galaxy Super Mario Galaxy Product Image

Beautiful and absolute epic soundtracks. It gives me goosebumps every time. When I told my mom if she remembered the game, she answered: "Oh, is it that game with the beautiful music?"
Well yeah you damn right mom

I felt sort of 50/50 with this soundtrack. Sure, some songs like Starbit Festival and Honeybee Kingdom were good, but then you have Lava Road and it kind of steers your opinion.

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.

5 Skyrim Skyrim Product Image

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

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!

Best Soundtrack by miles

Why skyrim (or at least Morrowind, which should be in top 10) is not number 1, AT LEAST top 3, is beyond me. (Oblivion is definitely the weakest of the three)
one of the most important soundtracks for the proper experience of a game. Irreplaceble and iconic.

and its not mere jingles, singular melodies or 16-bit children tunes like nintendo games. yes, I ve said it, zelda, mario etc are just super catchy and touch on our childhood memories, that's it music-wise, ffs grow up. they got stuck in your head, yes, but as far as art goes? cannot compare...

the only other irreplaceble, and of paramount importance for the enjoyment of gameplay soundtrack, is DOOM 2016, maybe on some aspects/moments Mass Effect Trilogy.

as for perhaps similar sounding soundtracks (classical pieces), Assassin's Creed, Dragon Age, Witcher etc, I love these games but they all have far far far far more generic symphonic pieces, that are indeed easily replaceble.

6 Shadow of the Colossus Shadow of the Colossus Product Image

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

7 Silent Hill 2 Silent Hill 2 Product Image

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.

Deserves 1st place.

If I want to have some real good ambient soundtracks for an open-world game. C418 should be the one making them. Sooo good!

Most soundtracks are calm and peaceful

How is this so far back!?

Beautiful

You should listen to living mice
