Epic (Not Quite) Film Score: Fridays.

First off I want to credit to  Jamie at Through Two Blue Eyes for the creator of the original "Epic Film Score Friday" and letting me use the name. Go check out her blog, it is awesome!

Now you might be wondering what I mean by "Not Quite" Film Score. This time thee music is not from a film but from a video game, but it no less epic. Video Games do not get the respect for their often times great story and music but here are some of the best. Please cooment and tell me if you like the music.

Not only is Skyrim one of the greatest games of all time, it has one of the best soundtracks ever. Even compared to many movies. The Elder Scrolls video game series is the best fantasy world since Lord of the Rings, if there was a movie made from Skyrim and it was done right, it would be one of the best fantasy movies ever.

Halo is an epic War Sci-Fi and this soundtrack perfectly fits the epicness of it.


The Legend of Zelda is an fantasy adventure and the soundtrack has a very adventure feel to the soundtrack.

Here is another soundtrack from Legend of Zelda.

Gears of War is another War Sci-Fi shooter but it is very dark, gritty, and violent. The soundtrack is perfect at adding to the overall sense of we are going to make it aginst all odds.

What did you think of the soundtracks? I plan to post this regularly and will post more obscure soundtracks and not the normal epic soundtracks.

  1. Wow, Skyrim was especially EPIC!

    And you're SO right, video games can have the most amazing music and story plots and characters! I don't play a lot of video games so I miss out on a lot of great stuff, especially the music! :D

  2. I adore soundtracks, movie, tv show, video game and otherwise. I've definitely found a few new tracks to add to my writing playlist... Thanks for posting these!

  3. I just happened to be playing Skyrim :P

  4. @Jamie: I am glad you agree. :) Most would probably be surprised by the quality of story from most video games.

    @Eldra: I love soundtrack also. :D It is about the only only thing that I listen to.

    @Solace Utara: That is awesome! I am a High Elf Mage.


  5. Skyrim was cool, Halo rocked, and Gears was also great. But Doesn't Zelda deserve better? Do the specific Zelda vehicle games sound better than the Smash Bros. theme?

  6. Oh I LOVE video game music! It just... makes you want to win! LOL!

  7. @JT/King Valun: I am glad you liked them. I just noticed that I have the wrong soundtrack from the game. I will post the better one in my next post.

    @Kayla: LOL. That is a good one.



One rule: No strong profanity. If you want to link to one of your posts, please do; I am always interested in other reviews and such.
