    6 Most Underrated Video Game Soundtracks In Recent Memory - Whats Your Favorite?

    Click for the article.

    Game soundtracks get very little attention compared to graphics for example, i thought it would be cool to get a discussion going on about soundtracks.

    My favorite game sound tracks of the top of my head are:
    Contra for the NES
    Little Big Adventure 1+2 for the PC
    Diablo 2 for the PC

    Which sound tracks have become your favorites?

    I always pay attention to soundtracks but tbh if the game is bad and graphics are awful, music alone can make up for a whole game, and I think the best soundtracks I have ever heard on any games are Final Fantasy's.

    Street Fighter and Kingdom Hearts (same composer). I know they're old though, not much has stuck out from recent games to me except maybe GoW.

    +Rep for truth. Great music is essential for any video game. Without it, even the most amazing moments will look dull.

    Assassin's Creed II and Bastion had fantastic soundtracks, but i wouldn't say they were under-rated. Bastion won the Best Score and Best Original Song on Spike Video Game Awards and a bunch of other ones. MW2 ended up quite generic, despite Zimmer being the composer.

    We all know that the MGS franchise may have the best soundtracks but in my opinion another series that has a great soundtrack but isn't really talked about is the Armored Core franchise. That franchise has awesome soundtracks.

    Wooooah! I totally remember that game Little Big Adventure! That was amazing.

    And my favourite soundtrack definitely has to be from the Monkey Island series. But music is an important part of the game for me being heavily involved with music creation (composition and recording) and reading the thread about playing games on mute, I was like.... you can't do that... people have spent lots of time on creating the music to suit these moments and provoke emotion... :'(

    Jet Grind Radio is my favorite. It is still one of my favorite games on the Dreamcast largely because of the catchy soundtrack. I hope Sega is able to retain the OST on the upcoming the SEN/XBLA version.

    Some other honorable mentions:

    Deus Ex: Human Revolution
    MGS (all of them)
    GTA Vice City
    The Legend of Zelda OOT
    Mass Effect 2

    Music is just as important, if not that more, than visuals. The immersion created by music is an undeniably compelling factor to a game's enjoyability.

    inFamous 2 and Skyrim have amazing soundtracks. The rogue camp theme (Tristram theme is better) is amazing. Also:

    Final Fantasy series have some really good and underrated soundtracks.
    Back to Zanarkand was a great soundtrack.

    I always find that music off game in the master system, NES, SNES & mega drive (genesis) era sounds cool that most modern stuff to this day I like music from the old Sonic games like Ice Cap zone off Sonic 3 and all that they just sound really funky with the MIDI sound.

    Some

    Sonic 3's Ice Cap Zone Act 1
    Sonic 2's Mystic Cave Zone Act 1
    One Winged Angel - FFVII
    Jenova SYNTHESIS - FFVII
    Lunatic Pandora - FFVIII
