Favorite Game Soundtracks

January 4, 2016

Recently, I was asked by a collegue to give them a list of my favorite game soundtracks. As a videogame composer I normally consume a lot of video game music. Recently, I rarely get to listen to the full soundtracks anymore. I have select songs from the soundtracks that I am fond of. However, I have listened to some full soundtracks that I can recommend. So, here is my personal list of soundtracks that I have listened to in full, have changed my life and that I feel are wonderful to experience as well. Please note these are in no particular order.
