A Small Selection of My Favourite Game Music

I made two posts in the past that showcased my fave tracks from specific games. (See List of Favourite Final Fantasy Tunes. Just because and ポケットナイツ Music Selection.) This time, it’ll be a general list. 😀 However, since I have a lot of favourites, I’ll just be highlighting a handful.

I’m always interested in meeting folks with the same taste in music so please comment if you approve of this selection. XD

Names of tracks are preceded by the composer or vocalist. The title of the game follows the track title.
