Most beautiful and melodic game soundtracks

Mass Effect 3 had an amazing soundtrack. Best tracks for “melodic” though, would have to be Tracks 18 (I Was Lost Without You), 21 (I’m proud of You), and 22 (An End, Once and for All). Honorable mentions to A Future for the Krogan and the end of Track 8, Ardat Yakshi. Loved the hell out of that series and game :3 And super-hyped for Andromeda :persevere:

Halo ODST’s soundtrack was interestingly jazzy. Not the best in the Halo franchise by a wide margin, but very unique and solid overall.

Ecco the Dolphin on the Dreamcast had one of the most peaceful damn soundtracks I’ve ever heard. That game literally could put me to sleep while I was playing it, not because I was bored (lost maybe, but not bored), but because the music was just so darn soothing :joy:

I disagree. I think ODST’s was probably the best out of the Halo series. Then again, we are talking about musical taste, something that no one can absolutely agree on.

Lol. True enough. My favorite Halo soundtracks are probably Halo 2 and Halo 4. I REALLY liked some of the tracks from 4 (Green and Blue was incredible), and Halo 2 gave us some of the most iconic renditions of the halo theme.

Arkham City theme is euphoric.

Pretty recent, but this one really caught me by surprise.

Jazz in any game is just…hhnnggg.


The ones I mentioned were really close =)
But what I mean with this is no game has ever come close to the emotional state a movie can give to me. I cried quite much with some movies. Maybe is because the passive aspect of watching the movie, maybe when you are in the game you are focused again in what you have to do, you don’t have time to process what’s happening. At least that’s what I feel it happens to me.
I go to play a little of Last of Us (no spoilers) and the first part left me with a sour taste, but wow, it was harsh. For now I couldn’t keep on playing because I don’t have a PS4 or 3.

This reminded me how much I enjoyed going to the cinema to watch movies, the seventh art n.n

Nier’s OST was nice. One of the few soundtracks I ended up buying on CD.

The old SNK games had such great music, good variety too. Never expected to hear anything like this in a fighting game

Soul Blade - the orchestral arranged was great, plus I like Li-Long’s remixed theme.

Nice to see Sonic tracks getting some love here.

I agree with Ori and Xenoblade as well.

My new contribution?

Fire Emblem: Awakening and Fire Emblem: Fates.

Three of my favorite tracks from each game:

My favorites are

Aerith’s Theme… Final Fantasy 7… bring tissues…

I honestly used to use this song to distract a friend when we were playing Soul Caliber 2. Worked every time.


lol This had me rolling.

I’m not sure why.

He’s a marine and it still hits his heart, especially now that he’s married. No matter what you do, you’ll never be able to save Aerith. :smiley:
