This Saturday at the Phoenix Symphony, replay: Symphony of Heroes makes its debut in the valley with two shows. I’m excited to check it out, as I’m a huge fan of live performances of video game music. I thought this would be a good time to share some of my favorite soundtracks in video games (warning: Not a lot of new stuff in here, some of my favorite soundtracks are older stuff). If you’re interested in the show, don’t forget to check out my interview with the producer of the show! I picked out 5 of my favorite soundtracks that were not all Japanese RPGs (honestly, all my fondest memories of gaming and music are from jrpgs) but hopefully you agree with one or two of my choices!

Mega Man 2 – NES

Wild Arms – Playstation

Shadow of the Colossus – Playstation 2

Final Fantasy VII – Playstation

God of War III – Playstation 3
