Video games theme songs have been really good this year. So many catchy and thematically appropriate tunes that it's a feast for the ears.






Resident Evil 2 - Saudade (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lumvaackf10)

Played at the end of completing both campaigns, this catchy rock track is the perfect song to end a zombie movie on a boring Wednesday. Music by Cody Matthew Johnson & Shim.






Kingdom Hearts 3 - Don't Think Twice / Chikai (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xGAziO3tU50)

Song by legendary artist Utada Hikaru and played at the end of the game. If you read the lyrics of the Japanese song, this is actually a song about marriage.





Devil May Cry 5 - Devil Trigger (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8k6GC5NtuAg)

The undisputed bop of summer 2018, this song so good they made four different versions of it. Music by Casey Edwards feat. Ali Edwards.







Judgment - Arpeggio (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uHxwO3mGpLU)

The perfect J-rock song for an evening episode of your favorite legal J-drama TV series. An "arpeggio" is a musical term for a type of broken chord. Music by ALEXANDROS.






Hardcore Mecha - Dash & Strike (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KuqQXRtuwGE)

The sound of youth, spirit and burning vigor, legendary artist Hironobu Kageyama of JAM Project lends his voice to bless this super robot wars inspired mecha action game.





Final Fantasy XIV - Shadowbringers (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4tyuIh12_HU)

Apparently when you bring back the shadow, you also brought rock music into the world. Composed by Masayoshi Soken, I really hope that this is the song that makes it to the Game Awards this year.

Travis Strikes Again was a bunch of "games" inside the game. And they had some dope themes

Killer Marathon's easily my favorite track

The Three Houses theme is pretty good. I don’t usually find myself listening to video game soundtracks, but I was trying to find that theme on Spotify last night.

Arpeggio has really, really grown on me, I love it. Almost wish it popped up at the start of every chapter, if you saved and quit, making the game feel even more like a drama.

Also Persona Q2 came out in Japan last year but hey it still sorta counts for most people on this forum

Ah shit I forgot that PQ2 came out this year as well!

Yeah "Road Less Taken" is amazing, the new battle theme is also good, forgot the name though.
