Original video game and film/movie soundtracks

Postby Noodle » Mon Nov 13, 2017 9:29 pm

This is an appreciation of original soundtracks. Music composed specifically for a game or film, not just a song that fitted a level, scene, cutscene or credits, or songs played on an in game radio (although GTA 3, for example did use some original songs for the radio stations).

So, post some soundtracks that deserve attention.

I'll start with a couple of game stuff:

Sub-Terrania (Jesper Kyd, Assassins Creed amongst others)

Shadow of the Colossus (Kow Otani, film scores plus arrangements for Diablo 3)

If it sounds good, listen to it

May not be exciting to most, but I absolutely loved the soundtrack to Zatoichi (Kitano version)

Okay. A quite recent one first. Reminds me of later Skyclad:

And one of the most popular TV themes of all time:

The soundtrack to Divinity: Original Sin 2 is utterly beautiful
