Whether you’re a millennial or you were born much earlier, you likely fell in love with video games at a young age. And, there is a good chance that some games mesmerized you longer than others. The Legend Of Zelda is one of the greatest video games known to man and it has only gotten better over the years. One thing that sets these games apart from the others is the soundtrack. When you’re playing a Zelda game, you know that the soundtrack is going to ramp up the emotions.
A lot of people like to debate the soundtracks for these games. Which Zelda game has the best music? It is tough to answer this question since it will depend on the player’s preferences.
There are countless games in the Zelda series and each game has been great in numerous ways. You know that these games will always have a great soundtrack. You’ll likely be satisfied with the music as long as you’re playing a Zelda game. Nevertheless, many players argue that Ocarina of Time has the best music. Others believe Twilight Princess has the best soundtrack of all Zelda games. Below, you will learn more about these games and the music that made them great.
Ocarina Of Time
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time was the 5th main installment in the series. It was released for the Nintendo 64 in November of 1998. The game scores impressive scores among critics and fans loved it as well. The music was composed by Koji Kondo and it did not disappoint. The only odd thing about this game is the fact that the main theme of the series was left out. The game features interactive music so the player has to listen carefully to complete their mission.
While the music was great for the time, many argue that it was held back by the platform. The sound capabilities of the Nintendo 64 were limited. The music itself was amazing but the system’s sound capabilities held it back.
Some of the great track that this game have Zora’s Domain, Epona’s Theme, Song of the Storm and Lost wood.
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess was the 13th main installment in the series. It was released for the GameCube and the Wii. It was first released to the public in November of 2006. This time, the game had multiple sound composers. Koji Kondo was joined by Asuka Ohta, Toru Minegishi, Mahito Yokota, and others. Like previous games, Twilight Princess does not have much voice acting. And, music plays a vital role in the game.
Since the game has a synthetic soundtrack, the background music is very dynamic. Nintendo did not use an orchestrated soundtrack and many ridiculed that decision. Koji Kondo admitted that he would prefer if the music was orchestrated. Some of the top songs from the game include Midna’s Lament , Ordon Village, Faron Woods and even the E3 trailer theme.
The Legend Of Zelda is one of the greatest video game franchises in history and that will never change. The music should be given credit for enhancing the experience and making the games unforgettable. All Zelda games have a good soundtrack so the debate will continue for many years to come.
