Everyone likes a top-10 list. They’re a bit of fun, and always good for discussion. And so each week we pull together a “top 10” list. These are here for fun and laughs – we’re not pretending that we’re the authority of good games taste in the world and this is purely the author’s preferences. Agree with him/ her or not, it’s all good. We’d love to hear your own personal preferences in the comments below the list. But please do be civil. We’re all friends here.

This week we’re looking at original soundtracks. We often forget the impact that a great soundtrack can have one a game; elevating it from a great game to become something spectacular.

The list below is by no means a complete list, but rather it is ten games that have inspired the Digitally Downloaded team at some point. With each game we’ve linked you over to a YouTube video of some of the music from each game in action (these videos are not ours). We would love to hear some of your favourite soundtracks in the comments below!


Mass Effect 3


Final Fantasy X


To The Moon

Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past

Halo: Combat Evolved

Metal Gear Solid

Sound Shapes
