10 Best Video Game Soundtracks
At one point in time, video game music was nothing more than placeholder fare — minimal accompaniment for what was happening on the screen. However, over the years, it has become an influential part of the game, whether it's a sweeping score that follows the actions of a powerful warrior or a comfortable – and humorous – approach to a cartoon-like "platforming" game.
And with the recent Grammy nomination of the music from the game "Journey," the genre as fully come of age.
These ten wondrous game soundtracks represent the wide-ranging styles of music that accompany some of the best games. Most of these soundtracks are available via YouTube and available for purchase from various retailers and download services. (We have included videos whenever they are available.)
