Top 5 Best Pieces Of Music In Gaming!


OK, I'm going to get a helluva lotta flack for the songs I put on this list, but I'm taking a gamble!

5. Welcome To Los Santos (GTA V)
When Welcome To Los Santos started playing in GTA V, I knew that I was going to enjoy the game. It captured the essence of Los Santos beautifully, with it's catchy bass really setting the scene of not only Vespucci Beach, but the moody nature of Michael at the start of the game. It made cruising around Los Santos again feel cool, but strangely different, as the gang warfare and riots seem like a thing of the past for the modern city.

4. Imma Try It Out (Call Of Duty: Black Ops 2)
  Black Ops 2, even though I hate Call Of Duty, had the best campaign of the series for me, mainly because of it's set pieces and variety of gameplay, from driving a car away from some huge waves to infiltrating Raul Menendez's base and eavesdropping on his conversations. However, my favorite set piece was in the mission Karma, where you try and find a girl with spectacular computer hacking skills before Menendez can. At one point you manage to find the girl in Club Solar, but a villain named DeFalco starts taking hostages and demanding that the girl reveals herself. The girl runs at DeFalco, and a fight ensues. However, the craziness and fast paced tempo of "Imma Try It Out" make this slow-motion fight ten times better, and it proved that sometimes in games, dubstep was actually an asset!

3. Theme Of Tara (Super Smash Bros: Brawl)
When Solid Snake first enters the campaign of Super Smash Bros Brawl, the music does it a huge justice, with it's cool bass guitar riffs capturing Snake sneakiness and the trumpet just being a cool trumpet. Just listen to it. I can't really explain how much it makes Snake better.

2. Turn It On (Hell Yeah: Wrath Of The Dead Rabbit)
OK, I'll admit that Hell Yeah isn't a very well known or good game, but it's soundtrack is one of the best in gaming, and it's a shame that not many people know it, and instead just listen to orchestrated Final Fantasy music, as it's what makes the game so damn fun. The gameplay may seem a little generic, but the fast paced guitar riffs of Turn It On make it hectic, fast paced and exhilarating, especially when you're fighting the variety of weird creatures that Hell Yeah houses.

1. Black Cats (Call Of Duty: World At War)
While Black Cats may not have been the best level in World At War, the song was definitely the highlight of a game that perfectly captured the dark nature of World War 2, and the brutality of the Japanese during it. In the Black Cats mission, you are in a PBY Catalina plane, with the task of destroying Japanese aircraft and ships, plus saving many crew members of a destroyed aircraft carrier. The soundtrack is the best part of the level, with it's catchy drums sounding like the fire of the AA guns, so it always keeps you on your toes. But the best part is that it's so damn catchy. Seriously.
