Soundtrack Section: Our Favourite Gaming Theme Songs

Life is Strange GuitarFor all the Soundtrack Sections we have done, it’s surprising that we haven’t given a list of some of our favourite theme songs from the games we love, so here it is!

Some of us have been thinking about this for a few days, or were like Fiona and just couldn’t choose a single theme song from an entire series, but we have come up with a fantastic and varied list which should please your ear holes nicely.

Remember, music is art, so just because one of your favourites don’t show up, does not mean it isn’t also amazing, just that our main choices are these for whatever reason, and a lot of them you can guess who put there. So here they are, in no particular order.
