The Greatest Film and Video Game Soundtracks of All Time by@Limarc

The Greatest Film and Video Game Soundtracks of All Time

The quality of the soundtrack could make or break a film or video game. We chatted about the best movie and video game soundtracks that spoke to us and will forever be in our all-time favorites. The Last of Us soundtrack is just so perfect. The Interstellar soundtrack inspired my curiosity for linguistics and the love of the English language. The Harry Potter series soundtrack is one of the greatest OSTs of all time. Game of Thrones might have a great OST, but SIlent Hill 2 is so lucid and mystic.

Music is a language understood by all at an instinctual level. The quality of the soundtrack could make or break a film or video game. With that in mind, we chatted about the best movie and game soundtracks that spoke to us and will forever be in our all-time favorites.

For video games, it has to be The Last of Us soundtrack (first game). This main theme is just so perfect

I love this.

Ellen StevensSep 22, 2021, 6:52 PM

Grew up watching this movie. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q5fW7sERw7I Inspired my curiosity for linguistics and the love of the English language. Much better than Breakfast at Tiffany's. Not sure why people tend to know that movie, but not this one.

I'd post every song from the above production, but that may be frowned upon.

Posted this once before, but what a tune: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Fki9jRzhYU

Ellen StevensSep 22, 2021, 7:06 PM

Was obsessed with this tune for the longest time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o9qCEEy2XcU OK I'm done lol. Most of the recent ones I posted in our other thready.

GiriSep 23, 2021, 3:38 AM

EDM-Remix of Alan Walker, love it

Amy ShahSep 23, 2021, 3:07 PM

What an absolutely stunning tune: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=77umP7IRxD4

Adrian MoralesSep 25, 2021, 11:24 PM

Skyrim might have one of the greatest OSTs of all time

Adrian MoralesSep 25, 2021, 11:30 PM

But I might say that my absolute favorite OST of any game has to be SIlent Hill 2, it's so lucid and mystic. A great work of industrial/ambient, even when separated from the game.

Call me a Potterhead because I can't get over the Harry Potter series soundtrack. Oh, let me add Game of Thrones to that list. Have you forgotten "Rains of Castamere"?

Limarc AmbalinaSep 27, 2021, 3:03 PM

OF COURSE I HAVENT FORGOTTEN RAINS OF CASTAMERE...it haunts my dreams

Mónica FreitasSep 28, 2021, 5:21 PM

Don't it haunts us all?! My poor Starks...
