Forums - Gaming Discussion - The Soundtrack Thread!

Lots of people seem to overlook the merits of a great soundtrack in a game. A great soundtrack, for me at least, a very good game into an excellent game.

Modern games seem to lack something in the soundtrack department. Maybe because composers aren’t restricted to 8/16 bits and can do the full-blown Hollywood score thing, which always ends up a bit generic. There are definitely some modern classics out there though.

Let’s start off with Donkey Kong Country 2. It's one of the all-time great platformers, pretty difficult, and had a brilliant soundtrack to boot. Highly recommended if you haven't already completed it.

The Pokemon Franchise has always had an amazing soundtrack. Every game seems to have a theme to it.(Ruby/Sapphire = Trumpets, Diamond/Pearl = Somewhat Classy, Black/2 and White/2 = Fast-Paced and modern.)

I really enjoy their soundtracks.

To embed videos, you use the video embed button above your text box. However, they don't show up if you're posting in the OP, so instead you have to go to the share tab under a yt video, then the embed tab, then copy the embed code that shows up (with the 'use old embed code' box ticked beneath it) and paste it in your OP.

Ah, Final Fantasy soundtracks really do it for me. Yummy.

Anyways I feel like soundtracks were amazing until like the first years of the sixth generation, and then everything just seemed to fall off.

Red Dead Redemption - So atmospheric, fits in with the game perfectly.



Listened to the entire FF7 OST so many times.

While a videogame may age in gameplay and visual appeal may no longer be high... Avideogames soundtrack has the potential to be timeless.
