My Top 5 Video Game Soundtracks (with highlights)
In response to a recent post in my friend feed, I've decided to make a list of my top 5 favorite soundtracks to games I've played along with a few of the tracks that helped them make my list. With this list, I'm sticking more with soundtracks that are based on more popular music, leaving out games such as Halo. The list is based on how much I enjoy the soundtrack, ignoring the quality of the game itself (though these are all great games in my opinion). The following are sort of in a particular order but I could see myself switching the order around in the future.

1. Tony Hawk's Underground 2
This game definitely helped shape my musical tastes growing up, turning me on to more underground hip-hop and punk/metal while turning me away from songs more on the Top 40 side of the spectrum.
Highlights include:
Aesop Rock - No Jumper Cables
Atmosphere - Trying to Find a Balance
Audio Two - Top Billin'
Living Legends - Night Prowler
Metallica - Whiplash
The D.O.C. - Whirlwind Pyramid
Pete Rock & CL Smooth - Soul Brother #1
Rancid - Fall Back Down

2. Saint's Row
Filled with many songs I already knew and loved, Saint's Row also introduced me to new artists I'd never really given a chance to before.
Highlights include:
Iggy Pop - Wild America
Masta Killa - Old Man/D.T.D./Digi Warfare
Motion City Soundtrack - Everything is Alright
Aesop Rock - Fast Cars
Black Sheep - Flavor of the Month
Madvillain - Money Folder
Mastodon - Blood & Thunder

3. Rock Band 3
By far my favorite of the on-disc Rock Band soundtracks, I think Harmonix did a fantastic job with the track selection for this one.
Highlights:
Them Crooked Vultures - Dead End Friends
Tegan and Sara - The Con
H.I.M. - Killing Loneliness
The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Crosstown Traffic
Chicago - 25 or 6 to 4
Yes - Roundabout
Golden Earring - Radar Love
Rilo Kiley - Portions for Foxes
The Who - I Can See For Miles

4. Grand Theft Auto IV
Though I enjoyed the music in each game of the GTA series, GTA IV will always stand out in my mind as the best of them all.
Highlights:
Nas - War is Necessary
Mobb Deep - Dirty New Yorker
Smashing Pumpkins - 1979
John Legend feat. Andre 3000 - Green Light
Gang Starr - Who's Gonna Take the Weight?
Gil Scott Heron - Home is Where the Hatred Is
Q Lazzarus - Goodbye Horses
James Gang - Funk #49
The Who - The Seeker
Edgar Winter Group - Free Ride

5. Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock
In what very well may be the last of the series, Activision came through with a more entertaining quickplay and story mode as well as my favorite of their soundtracks so far.
Highlights:
Them Crooked Vultures - Scumbag Blues
Blue Oyster Cult - Burnin' For You
Megadeth - Holy Wars...The Punishment Due
Blind Melon - Tones of Home
Alter Bridge - Ties That Bind
Rush -2112
The Buzzcocks - What Do I Get?

This concludes my list for now (as I'm tired of writing). I may write a second part to this list sometime in the semi-near future. smile

Is it scary?

Comment by SpectreSubZero at 15:04 on 15 Aug 2017

Lol, sometimes. It reminds me of dead space, but the entire game is sandbox style and a lot less gory
