IGN: 10 Great Videogame Albums (2008)

Post by Pierre » Mon Oct 23, 2017 9:43 am

The issue with lists of greatest video game soundtracks is that most lists are of games with great music, not actual albums. This one is very short, but with the bigger book of video game soundtracks I posted a few years ago and the "underrated" factor, it could be enough for a couple albums to make it (fingers crossed for Donkey Kong Country 2!).

Happy that Super Mario Galaxy got the nod-- some of the very best video game music ever!

Pretty good but it's missing Wipeout 2097 (various artists)

I'd kill to see DKC2 on the acclaimed music list.
