    In my honest opinion, I think video game music is better than a lot of music you find in movies, television, and maybe even music in general. Especially JRPGs, they're like a modern continuation of folk music that tells stories and myths. So as the title says, what is your top ten video game music!

    Here's mine in no order. Honestly not even really my Top 10 because there is so much good music to choose from. Just the first top ten that came to mind.
    • Persona 5 Royal's "I Believe".
    • Baten Kaitos' "To The End of the Journey Glittering Stars".
    • The Last Story's "Toberu Mono".
    • Assassin's Creed 3's "Trouble in Town".
    • Fire Emblem Echoes: "Shadow of Valentia's "Twilight of the Gods".
    • Monster Hunter World's "Brachydios' Theme".
    • Metal Gear V's "Sins of the Father".
    • Xenoblade Chronicles X's "The Key We've Lost".
    • Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess's "Save Llia".
    • Castlevania: Symphony of the Night's "I am The Wind". - If you are a Castlevania fan, listen to this song. You will both laugh and be impressed by this song. It is so out of place and yet so good.
    On another note, I'm surprised how many Zelda fans forgot what "Save Llia" is until they listen it and go, "Ooooh! I remember this song now!"

    More seriously, I don't really have a "top 10 video game songs" as opposed to "top tier/10 songs from a game" and "top tier/10 video game OSTs" because I like so many songs from games and each one cater to vastly different things for me. Like how I can't in good conscience say, for example, "Take Over" is better than "Sunset Bridge", both from Persona 5, because I like one as a battle theme and another as a background theme. And I can't say "Battle at Journey's End" from Octopath Traveler is better than "Our Beginning" from Persona 5 as "final boss" themes because they're both great to me for different reasons in games that are very different musically.

    Tl;dr I have too many songs I like to make a top ten video game song list easily. I can, however, give a top ten video game OST list easily. And top tiers for categories of songs (BGM, regular battle, boss battle, etc) but I'll do that later. Maybe. Note that everything below three is likely to change later, either in order or in the actual game in the spot.
