Soundtracks are an important part of games. The compositions, in addition to adding other information to the story, are also responsible for creating a certain intimacy between the game and its players. In The Last of Us 2, for example, the songs were part of the title’s narrative. Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 has the Brazilian band Charlie Brown Jr and his song “Confisco” on the soundtrack. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is also featured with its inspiring compositions, such as the theme song “Dragonborn”. Check out, in the list below, five game soundtracks available on Spotify.
