1You Won’t Be Able to Get These Soundtracks Out of Your Head

Alan Wake (1)

We all love music. Anyone that says that they don’t is just a bit weird really. We also love video games, so what could be better than great music in video games?

Although we feel it is a fact often overlooked, a good soundtrack can really be an asset to a video game. A catchy tune or an infectious song can stick around in your head long after you’ve grown tired of playing a title, keeping it in your mind for years to follow. It can also be great at setting the mood for a scene or simply getting you suitably pumped for combat.

We’ve searched the dark recesses of our minds to recover some of the best soundtracks to have ever embedded themselves into our unconscious. So sit back, relax, and enjoy a sample of what we believe are the best video game soundtracks of all time.

Not one to put all his eggs in one basket, Rich is happy to play games of all genres, but he particularly enjoys racing games and anything that's full of non-stop action, especially if it includes a good dose of humour, horror or crudeness!
