The 12 Best Video Game Soundtracks of All Time


As games have become more cinematic, their soundtracks have risen to the occasion. Nowadays video game soundtracks feature fully fledged orchestras (even choirs!) and professional singers. It’s a far cry from the non-descript cacophony of sounds that was the music of the early games. As a matter of fact renowned game composers like Jeremy Soule and Inon Zur have written music for movies and TV shows. So without further ado, here follows a list of the best video game soundtracks of all time.

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion


Bethesda’s Elder Scrolls is a fine RPG series, offering huge worlds to explore. And the 2006 role-playing hit Oblivion drew almost universal acclaim from reviewers and gamers. The game was set in the fantasy world of Tamriel, in the province of Cyrodiil, which was being besieged by demonic creatures from the plane of Oblivion.

And your experience in the game sure was enhanced by some great music by composer Jeremy Soule. It was classical in style and grand in scope. And whether you were engaging in battle with goblins or riding across the green plains of Cyrodiil, the music added to the game immensely. So it is no surprise that it won the MTV Video Music Awards soundtrack award.
