Video Game Soundtracks

Editorial Note: The following article was written with help from our friends at journalistic.org

As technology continues to evolve, there is no question that video game soundtracks have dramatically improved since home consoles’ early origins. From the heroic chorus chants in Skyrim to the beautiful guitar moments between Joel and Ellie in The Last of Us 2, soundtracks certainly play a key role in the game’s overall success.

But which video game has the best soundtrack?

Personally, I am biased towards the soundtracks of the original Tomb Raider series. Nathan McCree’s score in the original 1996 game is nothing short of a masterpiece, and the snowmobile theme from Tomb Raider 2 (1997) still gets my blood pumping all these years later. However, that is more of a personal preference and not what this article is about! You are here to find out the most popular video game soundtracks, and we have the answer for you!

Interested in this, the folks at RantCasino.com wanted to find out which video game soundtrack is the most popular.
