There are a lot of great music mix released this year, tunes that support and elevate the feeling you get from a flawless platforming performance or the adrenaline rush from emptying a room of supernatural cultists. The best game music sets the mood and helps your imagination fill in the blanks where simple graphics or a necessary ocean of UI cannot. We’ll never have time to play or hear everything, but out of 2019’s innumerable glut of great games, here are the soundtracks that stuck with us.
Gaming music is a tool that can control emotion and can establish the tone of story being told. Within film, many fans look at the soundtrack as a foundation to set the scene. This is no different in the video game industry.
Read and listen below, and if you hear something you like consider heading to the linked composer pages and picking up a soundtrack or two. And if we’re missing something, be sure to share your favorite game music mix of 2019 in the comments.
