Best Video Game Soundtracks of 2015: 'Witcher 3,' 'Hotline Miami 2,' 'Undertale,' & More!
With the year coming to a close, it's time we took a look at some of the best soundtracks the video game industry had to offer in 2015. The past 12 months have seen a host of memorable titles come out. From AAA open world adventures like The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt to smaller independent projects like Undertale and Hotline Miami 2, there was no shortage of good games to play and memorable songs to guide you through them.
Here are our picks for the best soundtracks of 2015.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
What more needs to be said about this game. The final instalment of developer CD Projekt Red's role-playing trilogy has been celebrated from all corners of the gaming industry. It's beautiful and immersive score, composed by Marcin Przybylowicz and Mikolai Stroinski, is one of the reasons why.
Undertale, a small 8-bit role-player from developer Toby Fox, has been the undisputed darling of the indie scene in 2015. The game's catchy boss battle tunes are sure to bring back fond memories of the RPG's of yore.
Persona 4: Dancing All Night
The Persona franchise has always been known for its catchy J-Pop inspired soundtrack and that trend continues with the latest instalment, the rhythm game spin-off, Dancing All Night. The title takes the already lovable songs from Persona 4 and remixes them into some utterly infectious pieces of funky pop music.
Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number
What would a best soundtrack list be without Hotline Miami? Wrong Number picks up where its predecessor left off, providing more of the same '80s electro and synth pop that hooked players the first time.
Ori and the Blind Forest
Though often hailed for its beautiful, hand-painted art style, Microsoft Studio's Ori and The Blind Forest boasts of an equally impressive score. Equal parts haunting, melancholic, and uplifting, composer Gareth Coker's work is one of the year's best.
Everybody's Gone to The Rapture
Jessica Curry's score for Everybody's Gone to The Rapture is another standout. We can only hope that the end of the world sounds this beautiful.
