5. Braid – Maenam
Anther XBL indie game with a great soundtrack, Braid’s Maenam is one of those instrumental pieces that just stays with you over time.
4. Red Dead Redemption – Dead Man’s Gun
This game had many great tracks to choose from including “Far Away” by Jose Gonzales, but my favirte was Dead Man’s Gun by Ashtar Command, and I still listen to it to this day.
3. Dead Island – Theme
Perhaps I’m cheating here as I don’t actually know if this track appeared in the actual game or not (I doubt it), but the beautiful piano/violin track from the unforgettable trailer is relaxing and emotional to listen to all by itself.
2. Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Icarus
This entire soundtrack is phenomenal, but the main theme of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Icarus, is its best track by far. It’s futuristic, hopeless and almost reverent, and I can’t get enough of it.
1. Final Fantasy X – Sky Theme
Wow, I’ve been listening to this one since…high school. Final Fantasy X is the only FF game I ever played all the way through (blaspehmy, I know), and I loved the soundtrack when I was younger. I even found sheet music for this track and re-taught myself piano just so I could play it. I was a pretty cool kid.
