I love the soundtracks of video games, they really are what draw me into the games that I’m playing. And some are just catchy, while others are really powerful and make me want to drive straight into the game. So here are five of my favorites in no particular order.
Dragonborn (Skyrim Theme Song)
This song is so powerful and really gets you into the mindset of facing off with dragons. And one of my favorite covers of this song is done by Peter Hollens. His cover conveys just how powerful it really is and I highly recommend you listen to it if you haven’t already.
Dawn Will Come (Dragon Age: Inquisition)
After the finale of the first part of the game, this song is sung by all the characters of the inquisition. And it is just so powerful of them regaining hope after all literally seemed lost after the destruction of Haven. I will go back and listen to this song during random times of the day whenever I need a little pick-me-up or encouragement.
Now I should go off and listen specific songs from Undertale that I love to pieces, but being all honest I can’t chose just one over another. I listen to this entire soundtrack while I’m at work and I honestly feel so much more DETERMINED to complete my work while doing so. Not just because there’s a song that is called Determination, but because the entire game is about staying determined in order to leave the Underground.
1000 Words (Final Fantasy X-2)
This video game holds a weird place in my heart. I’ve never played the game myself but this was the first ever let’s play (or walkthrough technically since the person never talked) that I walked. And this song just stuck out so much to me. I’ve listened it to so many times there’s no way I could make a favorite songs from video games without including it.
Underground (Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate)
I can’t quite put my finger on it but I love this song from Assassin’s Creed. And as with the Skyrim theme song, Peter Hollens does a fantastic cover of this song. I do prefer his cover a tad bit more to the original. I just love the story of this song and how it plays into the series of Assassin’s Creed.
Those were my top five favorite songs from videos games, what are yours?
