Favorite Game Soundtrack of 2011

posted by DAISHI on - last edited - Viewed by 638 users

What was your favorite game soundtrack of 2011? Youtube posts to music appreciated :)

My favorite soundtrack of 2011 belonged to what was, in my opinion, the best game of 2011: Sword & Sworcery. A story of archetypes combining the gameplay of Punch Out, Point and Click Adventures, Twitter quirkiness and internet memetics, the game conveys the long road to defeating the creeping darkness locked in Mingi Taw and giving up the Trigons to the universe.

Dark Flute
A wanderer's melody

Ballad of the Space Babies
The ether manifests itself in corporeal form for one moment of glory

Unknowable Geometry
The forces of the cosmos are awful and awesome, and test your strength not as an evil, but as a force of the universe

Activating the Trigons
The universe is in your hands, and opens doors to the cosmos

The Cloud
Peace finds you

The Whirling Infinite
Your life to save the cosmos, your life into the universe

  • I really liked the music in the new levels for "The Wonderful End Of The World" during the VALVe-ARG (Portal promotion)

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qgRx_4XfxPo

    and the second level had a version of Still Alive that wass really bad actually..

  • My favorite soundtrack this year was Bastion.

  • @Davies said: 'The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim'

    Yep. Skyrim had a wonderful soundtrack.

    As did Frozen Synapse.
    (the first digital music I ever bought)

    O-Hai Rather Dashing.

  • Geez. Does someone have a list of all 2011 games? I can't make this decision without seeing everything. Frozen Synapse would rank very high, though. Loved Skyrim as well. There's also technically Minecraft since V1.0 was finally released in November.

  • @DAISHI - You are aware that this is the "Favorite Game Soundtrack of 2011" thread and not the "Every Game I Played in 2011" thread, right? :p

    Also, you included quite a few re-releases in that list, which personally I don't think are fair game for a 2011 list.

  • Well, it was copied directly from Wikipedia so :P And yes I'm aware I started the thread ;) I was just giving a list for Musically Inspired.

  • @KuroShiro said: My favorite soundtrack this year was Bastion.

    This! My favorite track is "Build That Wall (Zia's Theme)"

  • Yes, he was answer my question, Davies.

    I'm going to have to stick with Frozen Synapse, Skyrim, and Minecraft (surprisingly Minecraft isn't listed!). Though, I haven't played Bastion yet but I'd really like to. It's on my Steam wishlist (;)). And it sounds pretty neat from what I've heard. But I must experience it myself.

    Sonic Generations is kind of the Smash Bros of Sonic with all the re-experiences and music remixes, some of which were quite good, but it doesn't top those three in music.
