The Greatest Video Game Music

London Philharmonic Orchestra - The Greatest Video Game Music

I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that this album is out.  Especially as many US orchestras include a concert of music from video games in their regular or pop seasons.

I am pleased that the instrument on the cover is a cello! :D

Here’s the track listing:

1. Advent Rising: Muse
2. Legend of Zelda: Suite
3. Call of Duty – Modern Warfare 2: Theme
4. Angry Birds: Main Theme
5. Final Fantasy VIII: Liberi Fatali
6. Super Mario Bros: Themes
7. Uncharted – Drake s Fortune: Nate’s Theme
8. Grand Theft Auto IV: Soviet Connection
9. World of Warcraft: Seasons of War
10. Metal Gear Solid: Sons of Liberty Theme
11. Tetris Theme
12. Battlefield 2: Theme
13. Elder Scrolls: Oblivion
14. Call of Duty 4 – Modern Warfare: Main Menu Theme
15. Mass Effect: Suicide Mission
16. Splinter Cell: Conviction
17. Final Fantasy: Main Theme
18. Bioshock: The Ocean on his Shoulders
19. Halo 3: One Final Effort
20. Fallout 3: Theme

I still have to figure out and arrangement of some World of Warcraft tunes for il Troubadore!  Kudos to the London Philharmonic Orchestra!  Here’s a link to some audio at Amazon.com.

  1. Unfortunately, speaking as both a musician and someone who has a long history with video games, this is a terrible representation of the “greatest” video game music.

    • I’ll admit I don’t know a whole lot about video game music–and to be truthful, there are some scores I would have preferred to see recorded (for some reason the original Resident Evil soundtrack resonates with me and reminds me so much of the opening of Bartok’s Concerto for Orchestra in a good way).

      I barely know half of the games listed!
