Best Video Game Soundtracks of 2021

Honorable Mention: Metroid Dread

Staff Writer Omar Banat: Ever since the inception of the Metroid franchise, it has been all about using every bit of the game to tell a story that may not come across in words. And in Metroid Dread everything from the title screen to the sounds that the E.M.M.I.s make is designed to give you that feeling of hopelessness and despair.

One of the most magical tracks in the game is the music that plays when you’re being chased by an E.M.M.I. It’s one of the most frenetic tracks there has ever been in a Metroid game. The frantic melody is surrounded by echoing stingers and the occasional chirps of an E.M.M.I. Maybe it’s just a memory of the game, but this track somehow evokes the feeling of being trapped solely with sounds.

But besides the track that accompanies an E.M.M.I., the sounds they make will keep you up at night. At first, their little chirps might sound playful and curious. But right after you have your first encounter with one of these killing machines, then your tone changes. The sharp terrifying sound they make as they kill Samus is something that will haunt you for years to come.
