The Greatest Video Game Music 2 Tracklisting Revealed – IGN

The first “Greatest Video Game Music” performed by the London Symphony Orchestra was pretty good. I wasn’t completely excited with their choices of what to play, but I’m always happy when game music gets some credit. IGN has listed that the first album is getting a sequel and the selections here are better to me, more diverse and cover some of my favorite games. Have a look below and visit the story at IGN through the above link for a video interview with arranger and composer Andrew Skeet.

  • Assassin’s Creed: Revelations – Main Theme
  • The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Far Horizons
  • The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker – Dragon Roost Island
  • Castlevania – A Symphonic Poem
  • Final Fantasy VII – One-Winged Angel
  • Mass Effect 3 – A Future for the Krogan/An End Once And For All
  • Halo – Never Forget/Peril
  • Sonic the Hedgehog – A Symphonic Suite
  • Chrono Trigger – Main Theme
  • Luigi’s Mansion – Main Theme
  • Metal Gear Solid 3 – Snake Eater
  • Street Fighter II – A Symphonic Suite
  • Kingdom Hearts – Fate of the Unknown
  • Super Metroid – A Symphonic Poem
  • Diablo III – Overture
  • Batman: Arkham City – Main Theme
  • Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Icarus Main Theme
  • Fez – Adventure
  • Portal – Still Alive
  • Little Big Planet – Orb Of Dreamers (The Cosmic Imagisphere)

 I am very excited to hear the orchestra’s take on Chrono Trigger, Castlevania and the big surprise to me here, Super Metroid, one of, if not my favorite, platformers of all time with excellent music. Arkham City already has the feel of a big budget film score, so that arrangement should do well. Deus Ex could provide for some interesting listening also. I will add pre-order/buy links when made available.
