It’s been a wild year with some amazing video game releases from Hades to Ghost of Tsushima and everything in between. While there are many ways to define what an ‘amazing game’ is, having a strong soundtrack is certainly part of that. 

We have a lot of “Best Of” lists going up on the site as we transition from 2020 into 2021, and we thought it was only fitting to put together a list of some of our favorite video game soundtracks.

We have a lot of favorites, so we’ve separated them into the top 15, and then additional soundtracks we recommend listening to. 

Note that the top 15 aren’t listed in any particular order, they’re all equally great in being this year’s best of the best.
