Top 10 NES Game Soundtracks

We're back with a look at the very best music from the 8-bit era of Nintendo consoles.


Shack's Top 10 is back and we are counting down the Top 10 NES soundtracks. These aren't the most popular video game songs, but the best video game sountracks overall. There are plenty of more iconic songs than the ones in this list, but we believe that these soundtracks represent the very best NES video game music from the 8-bit era. Games mentioned include: Jurassic Park, Contra, Zelda 2, Duck Tales, Mega Man 3, Tecmo Bowl, Batman, Ninja Gaiden, Castlevania 3, and Metroid. Please take a look at this video to find out which game is number one.

For more great videos, including developer interviews and convention coverage for events like E3 or PAX, be sure to check out both Shacknews and over on YouTube.
