10 Gaming Songs That Are Actually Perfect Christmas Bops

Upbeat jams for the weekend.

1 of 2

Freezeezy Peak – Banjo-Kazooie

The Best Video Game Music for Christmas

Kicking off our list of awesome gaming Christmas bops is the legendary tune of Freezeezy Peak from Banjo-Kazooie . While all of these games don’t come right out and say Christmas-themed level, a lot of them – and especially Freezeezy Peak – may as well because it’s super obvious. In Banjo-Kazooie you’re essentially part of your very own “saving Christmas” special as you’ll be asked to protect the adorable Twinklies from evil Twinkly Munchers (both living holiday lights) as they journey in their mission to light up the Christmas tree. Also trying to ruin your holiday spirit are those DAMN Snowmen that throw snowballs at you. ARGGG they are so EVIL. Mock me with your laugh one more time, just wait until I get the Beak Bomb and we’ll see who’s laughing… probably still you because I’ll miss 90% of the time and go crashing into a wall.

White Park Zone Act 1 – Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 2

The Best Video Game Music for Christmas

The rule for most Sonic games is regardless of the quality of the game, the music is almost guaranteed to be incredible. Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 2, while being far from the worst Sonic game, wasn’t great. But no one is going to tell me that White Park Zone Act 1 is not awesome wintery Christmas music. Yeah sure, Ice Cap Zone is by far the best snow-themed level of Sonic, but if we’re talking music that reminds you of the holidays, White Park Zone comes out on top. Honestly, out of all the zones in Episode 2, White Park Zone is really the only one that stands out due to its fun/unique theme park design, and of course its memorable music. Hopefully SEGA decides to give players one more ride through White Park Zone in a future game.

Vanilla Lake – Super Mario Kart

The Best Video Game Music for Christmas

While Super Mario Kart’s Vanilla Lake is certainly less in your face than some of the other entries on this list, it still has a nice upbeat tune that reminds you of cool snowy days outside with your pals. Hopefully your snow days were less violent than the atrocities that went down at Vanilla Lake.

Diamond Dust Zone Act 1 – Sonic 3D Blast

The Best Video Game Music for Christmas

Here’s another crappy Sonic game with amazing music. There are a couple versions of this zone’s song, but the Saturn version is by far the best. It straight up sounds like a song that would play at the beginning of some corny Christmas special as some narrator sets the stage for the story that’s about to unfold. Enjoy the song but avoid Sonic 3D Blast like the plague, it really does not hold up well at all.

Snowball Park – Super Mario 3D World

The Best Video Game Music for Christmas

Snowball Park is another song that almost too perfectly encapsulates its setting. This light and care-free tune not only fits the scenery of Snowball Park like a glove, but if you grew up playing in the snow as a kid with your friends, it will take you right back to those moments.
