TA's Video Game Music Collection

By NightStalkar, 9 years ago
Recently I had the idea of creating a TrueAchievements top 10 music list. Well, I ended up following through with the idea only to come to the blunt realization that there are far too many video game tracks out there, and there will never be anyone that has the right to judge which is better than another. Everyone grew up with different soundtracks and games, so everyone is going to have different tastes on the subject.

So, instead of compiling this top 10 list, I've polled many of the TA staff to come up with an extensive list of the BEST (or at least what we think is) in the VG music industry.

Because we love you guys so much, instead of just listing the songs we came up with, we have compiled a fully function youtube playlist of all the songs we initially came up with.

Playlist here:

But wait, it gets better. This is a call to arms from all fellow TA'ers out there, post in the comments section of this thread of your favorite music if it didn't happen to make the list (obviously there will be alot and that is GOOD!). I will keep the playlist updated with what everyone recommends as much as possible here, and we may be able to implement this youtube playlist into our "Useful Links" section on the site.

Games that made the initial list:

- Castle Crashers
- Castlevania
- Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2
- Chrono Cross
- Chrono Trigger
- Donkey Kong Country
- Final Fantasy VII
- Goldeneye 007
- Guilty Gear Isuka
- Halo: Combat Evolved
- Jet Set Radio
- Mega Man X (and others)
- Mirror's Edge
- Mortal Kombat
- Perfect Dark
- San Francisco Rush
- Secret of Mana
- Sonic The Hedgehog 2
- Sonic Adventure
- Streets of Rage 2
- Streets of Rage 3
- Unreal Tournament
- Wild Arms

Please remember to provide us with some feedback and suggestions for our list. Thanks guys! Hope this brings back a few memories for everyone.
