Top 5 Video Game Music of 2013

I have these songs in my playlist. Do you?

Since it is beginning of 2014, I thought I would list of the best songs that I have heard in video games this past year. Sounds simple right? Bear with me, this is my first time into the foray of this slideshow format. I do not want to take up too much of your time so here it goes!

GTA V Los Santos Rock Radio 

GTA V! How can I not make a top guide without Grand Theft Auto. From the first game to this current one, the music is fantastic. I have an obsession with the '80s. I could not pick just one song. That is why I picked "Los Santos Rock Radio" for my pick but you could take any of the in-game music. For instance, I loved Rebel Radio particularly the song "Convoy." From the news broadcasts announcing what you destroyed in the world and the funny commercials, life was good tearing through Los Santos. If you did not listen to any of the radio then you have not lived.

The Boys are Back in Town - Thin Lizzy (1976)

Saints Row 4 was my first foray into this in-game radio feature. I knew about this before but I have never played any of the games. I picked "The Boys Are Back In Town" by Thin Lizzy. It reminded me about high school and all the friends I had made and lost. Call me sentimental but the first time I heard it, tears were streaming down my eyes. It was either me remembering the good old days or I was playing this game too long. Did you know that the song Opposites Attract" by Paula Abdul are sung by the player and Pierce Washington in the Loyalty mission "Brotherhood." Loving the Transformer tune by Stan Bush - The Touch. You could also create a custom station called Mixtape. My mixtape was crazy from '80s songs to the classical station. Do I dare mention the Wub Wub gun and its beats?

Terraria - Medley Orchestra 

Terraria, the little game that could. This theme is light, airy, and ready for exploring! I really don't know what else I can say about it. I love it!

Animal Crossing New Leaf Music - Main Theme

Animal Crossing: New Leaf was an obsession for all of us. By now all of us who has not played in a while, our town has burned down and all the people left or are dead. The theme was for me like being at home in you couch, having this warm feeling of fire and relaxing.

Ducktales Remastered Soundtrack - Moon Theme

Ducks in space. Yes, ducks in space. My final pick is Ducktales Remastered - "Moon Theme". The original Moon Theme was amazing but this one compares nicely. You still have the touch of old but you have the new electronic beat. What could you expect out of anthropomorphic ducks from the Disney afternoon. Plus, I loved how you could jump in Scrooge McDuck's money pit and hear the all the gold coins jingle.


So, you have gotten to the end of the post and you fondly remember all the games you have played in 2013. I hope you have a wonderful 2014 and another great year in gaming! What songs did you like? Did I miss any? Hit me up in the comments below!
