Random video game music highlights 2013-2014 (orchestral)

Posted by Jeff Beeman on Mon, 04/14/2014 - 20:52

This is list is incomplete, entirely subjective, and presented in no particular order. Most of the music here is from games I personally played last year. I'm sure there are other excellent soundtracks from 2013 and early 2014, so let me know if you have any other recommendations!

A lot of the credit for this list goes to the Top Score podcast by Emily Reese, over at Classical MPR. Additional inspiration from Kotaku.
