Music is an incredibly important part of many people’s lives. It can be used as a means to relax or have a good time and it can also be a way to express one’s identity. Now what if you had your very own soundtrack for life? For this week’s round of Nerd Wars!, we want to know which video game soundtrack would capture the magic or intensity of your life. 

Here are a collection of songs from fantastic video game soundtracks to get you thinking:

Hopefully these pieces of music remind you of the great soundtracks you’ve listened to over the years. Which one of them stands out as the perfect fit for your life? Sure, some of them may be far too intense for the average person, but maybe you just live an intense life.


  1. I have to choose just one? My favorite game soundtracks right off the bat are the ones from Sonic 3 & Knuckles, Mass Effect 1, and Final Fantasy VIII.

  2. I’m with Neo above me. I have to choose just one?

    Well I already answered on Twitter, but TWEWY for sure. After that? Probably Nier, or one of the XIII/XIII-2/LR soundtracks. Some of the songs really get me sobbing and they’re perfect for those moments where I’m spoon deep in a pint of Ben and Jerry’s. You know, past the point of no return.

    1. Life is full of tough decisions… I’m just here to help guide you through them.

      Random side-tangent: Have you seen the amazing looking “Core” ice cream flavors for Ben and Jerry’s? I’m aboutsta gain like 10 pounds.

  3. Man, that’s a tough question! Top 5 have gotta be (in no particular order…
    – Soul Blazer
    – Final Fantasy VI
    – Chrono Trigger
    – Earthbound
    – The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
    (With an honorable mention to Ys: Books I and II)

  4. You must’ve read my mind or something by putting up SH2. That is definitely the soundtrack to my life. I still listen to it often. Alice: Madness Returns comes in close second. After all, I did name my blog “CardCastlesInTheSky”

  5. Aw, man. Can we pick what our life SHOULD sound like or what we want it to?

    I would want my BGM to be from Chrono Cross but most likely it’d be something lame… Like, Farming Simulator 2013.

    1. THE SOUNDTRACK FOR FARMING SIMULATOR 2013 SHREDSSSS!!!! Maybe… I honestly have no idea what is sounds like, but I’d imagine there is a lot of steel string acoustic guitar and tambourine.

  6. I would have to say the soundtrack from Soul Reaver: The Legacy of Kain always pops in my head when thinking about VGS. That and I once used the Skyrim soundtrack to help put my son to sleep at night 😉
