OK! This isn’t a video game sound track
I know the title is “What game has the best sound track”
But hear me out (pun intended).
The song, “Waltz of Thieves” is just too good to give up. This song is very reminiscent of a past epoch where Synth music was the norm for games, much akin to games played on Machintoshes, or Commodores, or even early Microsoft PC’s. Hell, the whole album reeks of nostalgic point and click bit crushed magic. It has a very distinct sound, for reference this is Old RuneScape’s “Sea Shanty2”:
It’s something uncommon to hear, so I wanted to quickly give that a shout-out.
And if you aren’t satisfied with THAT, here’s some Guilty Gear Strive OST’s
This is quite frankly an unforgettable main theme; and what other game than a fighter game would dare hold that mantle. The Vocalist, Naoki Hashimoto, and the Composer, Daisuke Ishiwatari, do a fantastic job of creating an adrenaline pumping song to get the blood flowing, at least for me and my friends who agree this song is the BOMB. The Guilty Gear Strive OST is oozing with a plethora of good rock to blast on the road or jam out to beating people up with; but, why stop there when you can also listen to Guilty Gear Xrd?
“Heavy Day” is a classic ‘Must Listen’ Guilty Gear song. Composed and sung by the name people mentioned above, it is just an amazing song. It has much the same energy as the aforementioned “Smell Of The Game”: adrenaline inducing and pure fun.
Now for something I failed to mention previously.
The Marty O’Donnell Halo Original Sound Track are just some of the best of the best of video game sound designs. Peace, tension, climax, and resolution. These soundtracks can convey whatever scene they are in to a T.
For example take a listen to this Halo ODST song (it’s a compiled mix of songs that form the ODST’s Theme, but that shouldn’t take away form the gradiose magic of it all)
Also (since I am a bit of a Halo nerd), if you don’t really know what an ODST is in Halo, check out this trailer:
Honestly, I just plugged that because I really love these trailers. I’ll be honest and say that Halo 3 had the best trailers, check 'em out.
These are goddamn trailers for a GAME, these were insane when they came out and they still are.
