10 Awesome Video Game Themes Played by an Orchestra

We’ve posted videos of video game theme music as played on the guitar in the past, and as impressive as some of those were, it’s tough to beat a full orchestra.  Every nuance of a video game’s music can be heard when so many instruments are involved in its rendition, and a seemingly catchy tune can morph into an epic triumph of auditory glory.  Check out 10 great video game theme songs as played by an orchestra below.

And no, there will not be any renditions of the themes to Super Mario Bros. or The Legend of Zelda.  Wayyyy overplayed.
