* ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'', being a long-running series, is almost as well-known for its music as its gameplay. Of particular note is ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword Skyward Sword]]''; in keeping with its overall "25th anniversary" theme, the game initially came packaged with a bonus CD containing orchestral arrangements and medleys of several of the franchise's most popular songs.

* ''Creator/NihonFalcom'' is well known for the various soundtracks for their games, along with codifying several of the earliest examples of the ActionRPG. In particular, the ''Franchise/{{Ys}}'' series was one of the earliest games to issue soundtracks of both original and rearranged material, bloops and all.
** ''Ys I: the Vanished Omens'', and Ys II: Ancient Ys Vanished'' featured music composed by acclaimed composer ''Creator/YuzoKoshiro'' on the ''PC88''. Examples:

** ''Ys'' was also one of the earliest series to adopt CD-quality music and voice acting in its games, thanks to the ''PC-Engine'''s CD attachment. The port of the first two games was also significant in reaching American audiences, exposing gamers in 1991 the potential of disc-based games.

In early video game history, game music was very basic, rarely straying from a simple two- or three-note tune composed of electronic 'beeps and whistles' of various pitch and duration. With the rise of the soundcard, however, music has become more elaborate and memorable; Hollywood veterans such as Jeremy Soule and Harry Gregson-Williams are providing scores for many of today's top-selling games. Much like music fans, fans of games given to paying attention to soundtracks can tell when their favorite composers have written something (compare the soundtracks of ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' and ''PlanescapeTorment'').

* ''VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou'' was praised for its all-vocal soundtrack mix, consisting of J-Pop, rap, and R&B. All the more wondrous considering it's all crunched into a NintendoDS cartridge!
* Part and parcel of ''UsefulNotes/{{Emulation}}'' is the emulated sound scene. You can find music ripped directly from game code for most console generations right up to the PlayStation2. Its legality is arguably a bit better than downloading [=MP3s=] directly, especially if you already own the game, but nobody has really tested it.

** Some of the scenery crews involved in this ultimately ended up working in the games industry. An early example of this was ''StarControl 2'''s soundtrack. The developers announced a contest online for people to send in sound tracker modules based on descriptions of the game's thematic content, the result was one of the best soundtracks in the history of gaming.

* ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'' series has an arranged soundtrack for damn near every game it has, with real instrumentation replacing the NeoGeo sound. There's also usually an ImageSong on each soundtrack as well.
