Forums - Music Discussion - Best recent video game music (last 5 years)

For me, the best recent video game soundtrack is from Nier: Automata

Another great OST that comes to mind is from Hollow Knight.

Around the Network

God of War
The Last Guardian

Persona 5
Super Mario Odyssey

Lifetime Sales Predictions 

Switch: 156 million (was 73, then 96, then 113 million, then 125 million, then 144 million, then 151 million)

PS5: 115 million (was 105 million) Xbox Series S/X: 48 million (was 60 million, then 67 million, then 57 million)

PS4: 120 mil (was 100 then 130 million, then 122 million) Xbox One: 51 mil (was 50 then 55 mil)

3DS: 75.5 mil (was 73, then 77 million)

Hollow Knight is easily my favorite. Such a great soundtrack. 

Nier Automata would come second. 

The soundtrack of FF7r is also a 10/10 in my book. 

<--- Totally worth it

Studiopolis Act 1 from Sonic Mania was also the first track that came to my mind but since t's already mentioned, and rightfully so, I'll pick something else instead.

I could go on.

One recent game I forgot to include in my previous post is the FFVII remake. Just a perfect example of how to rearrange an existing score while staying true to the style and tone of the original. Easily my favourite video game score from last year.

Im not really a music guy especially when it comes to video games but The Outer Wilds and Nier Automata really stood out to me

From the last 5 years, these are the games that stood out to me musically, with one track from each:

Monster Hunter Rise

Xenoblade 2

Astral Chain

Ori and the Will of the Wisps
