Video game soundtracks. One of the many great factors that contribute to the mood and feelings that games create and make us feel. Skyrim wouldn’t be as epic without it, Battlefield 3 wouldn’t be as bad ass without one, that old school vintage feel wouldn’t have been possible in a game like Bioshock, and fear wouldn’t be a factor in a game like Silent Hill.
We all love games, that’s why were here, but right now we want to take a moment to list off our favorite soundtracks in video games. From the cast here at The Game Fanatics to you, our readers.
At the end of this post there will be links to youtube videos of one or two of the soundtracks each one of us here at TGF chose. Take a listen to see for yourselves how awesome these soundtracks are.
