XLW's mini-lists of video game music... since 2020


Recommended Posts

For a little while, I thought about making a list of my favorite songs from video games, but there were so many amazing pieces new and old, that I decided to make mini-lists for different occasions, like when it’s Spring and when you feel like going against a boss but need to find the perfect music that would make the current one a lot better. Now, some of my choices come from games I have never played, come from different media, and are variations of current pieces. And some will be in more than one of these mini-lists. There’s also a few that have never been in a video game, but I would put in my ‘ideal’ one. Next, one song per series, unless it's a spin-off. Last, this is all my personal opinion, and this list change every year because there are some games I haven't played and defeated yet. Also, there's a chance I haven't considered some songs by the end of each year, so please give me a break! 

 

So, without further ado, here are my mini-lists!... And explanations for the choices!
