Ooh, it'd be tough to pick a singular best. The ones I go back to most often are TES: Skyrim, Chrono Trigger, Overwatch, and TLoZ: Ocarina of Time. It's tough to go wrong with any of Bethesda's big games. The Elder Scrolls and Fallout titles in particular have amazingly well done soundtracks. Deus Ex: Human Revolution also has a great soundtrack.

It's difficult to choose an absolute best soundtrack, but I'd probably have to go with Bloodborne's. I purchased a PS4 just for that game when it released, and definitely don't regret it (though the other exclusives helped too).

Truly a great game and with a excellent soundtrack. The whole Souls-Borne universe is rich with atmosphere.

There isnt an absolute best game soundtrack. Theres about 100 amazing soundtrack.

But I notice games with religious (godly) mythological soundtracks usually are consider close to being in the top 25. I notice a few people actually name games that are what I describe, example, bloodborne, soulsgames, Chrono Cross/trigger, Final fantasy, ecth... It will be hard for fighting games, shooting games and racing games to be in the top 25 also.

I will vote Nier 1 and Nier 2

Everything Jeremy Soule ( GuildWars 1, 2 / Morrowind, Oblivion, Skyrim )
DeusEx Human Revolution and even Mankind Divided
Witcher 3

Might be biased because of nostalgia: Witcher 1 and Unreal Tournament '99.

The mother of all soundtracks


Koji Kondo composed it, and look at the others he composed. Nintendo wouldn't have sound of Nintendo without Kondo. He's responsible for the sound of Nintendo.

I am in my late 20s, played a variety of games since middle school. The soundtrack I keep coming back to is Fallout 3 soundtrack on long drives.


It invokes a real nostalgic mood for me that I cannot explain. It is calming to the ears and brings a flood of memories back.

Whoever Nintendo is getting to compose Legend of Zelda under Koji Kondo's supervision gets my vote.

The Tekken series has some of the best OSTs. Tekken tag tournament intro and outro. Tekken 5 intro. I love the ost of tekken 5 - Kazuya Ending. I wish they made it into a full track.

Best video game OST ever.... Xenoblade Chronicles 2. The full OST is 6 full CD's in length. Here are just a few examples. Keep in mind, to really understand how great this music is, you really need to play the game or at the very least watch the 13 hours of cutscenes available on youtube. (it's much shorter than the 100+ hours required to beat the game)
