Not saying the music isn't good, I'm actually a pretty big fan of halo music.

But there are other, less known games with music that I feel could defeat the mighty halo off his musical throne.

Still deserved AT LEAST a mention, tho.

toast to all the Halo fans out there toast
A simple bad habit will mar an otherwise flawless character, as a single ink drop soils the pure white page.

There are few composers that could match Martin O Donnell and that would be the likes of Hans Zimmer (Modern Warfare 2, Crysis 2), Tom Salta (Hot Pursuit, Future Soldier, Fall of Reach, HAWX, GRAW), Michael Giacchino (Medal of Honor, Call of Duty) and probably a few others.

Yeah, well all the ones you mentioned are some I mentioned to some friends, saying I was surprised they weren't in the list!

A problem with martin O'donnell that I noticed tho, was, at least in the original halo trilogy; he re-used tracks a LOT. ODST and Reach were (Fresh) exceptions, even tho I felt Reach never had that epicness that the other games had in terms of soundtrack

Excellent list! Love four of the top five themes. Personally I would switch out Dark Souls 3 for Destiny's original theme or even Farcry: Blood Dragon. Oblivion definitely over Skyrim. I'm very biased towards the Mass Effect series so I would probably put Vigil first or maybe second after Child of Light.

While I've never played any of those games, I can only guess it's a good list. I will talk about some of my favorites:

Halo 4, of course. It's so beautiful, swells to this incredible din of emotion, then ends with a whimper of Cortana's theme. I cry every time! cry

While it doesn't count because it's just licensed music, I thought Brutal Legend's main menu idea was (is) so fucking cool. Best menu ever.

Bulletstorm, always. Best song on the whole album.

No HM for Harm's Way? XD

(There's not even a YouTube for this, so I guess not.)

Ms. Splosion Man should've gotten an HM, too.

Perfect Dark. You're out of your mind.

Portal 2 was also great, as it changed depending on your progress in the game!
BOTH All-Stars Racing and Racing Transformed!


God, so many...

I won't bother commenting on the fact that Halo is missing entirely from this list.... Instead I'll say really? DA: I?? While it was an OK game it was sort of underwhelming. The main menu didn't inspire me keep coming back to finish grinding that Inquisitor achievement....
