When you think of music in video games, you think of the iconic soundtracks of Super Mario Bros, Tetris and Street Fighter II just to name a few. These games have tracks that are often regarded as the greatest in video games’ short but impressive history. However with the rapid advancements in technology video game music havs changed dramatically and have become an important part of the storytelling process.

This is because players don’t just watch when it comes to video games. They also perform actions – they press buttons, they move characters, they make decisions. In turn, video games respond by acting on the player – displaying choices, providing rewards and taking them away. Music must exist as part of this delicate system.

Tons of great video game music 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.
