Persona 5 might as well have set the bar for how music should be treated in games this year. Music is the lifeblood of the game, with everything being carried by its infectious rhythm.

It was difficult deciding on just one track to capture Persona 5's sheer mastery, as each one expertly reflects the game's tone (pun definitely intended).
