As I continue gnashing my teeth trying to finalize my top 10 games of the year, I find myself reflecting on the great music that accompanied many of the year's best games. As an appreciator of not only quality music in video games, but also how a great soundtrack can enhance an otherwise good game, one of my favorite trends of recent years has been the influx of wonderful video game soundtracks. 2013 continues this trend, providing tons of great video game music, and I'd like to highlight some of my personal favorites. I've picked out 10 video game soundtracks that I particularly enjoyed this year, and then picked a standout track from each one to share below. I hope you enjoy listening, and please feel free to share some of your favorite video game music of the year!
