VNs with an amazing soundtrack

Recommended Posts

Looking for good games with good music. It doesn't really matter what genre the game it is, as long you could say it's enjoyable ofc.

Untranslated is fine. It would be appreciated if you link some of the soundtracks that you actually liked, but not really necessary. Thank you~~!

As for VN with good music, I think it's subjective. So, I didn't really know much. But I think Symphonic Rain will fulfill your wish, it had good vocal song and good story. Here's 2 example of vocal song from Symphonic Rain.

Lycenne by Liselsia Cesarini (CV Fumiko Orisaka)

Secret by Tortinita Fine (CV Mai Nakahara)

Hope you enjoying Symphonic Rain if you choose to play that, and by the way it had some rhythmic gameplay there.

I think what makes an OST amazing is what is going on during the scene, so the story adds a background to the music and that's why we get so attached to it. It makes us relive those feels.

Edit: I just realized your VNDB list. It seems you already played some of these..

Little Busters!:

G-senjou No Maou

has some epic memorable music too:

Sharin No Kuni:

Hapymaher (this VN has the single best soundtrack I've encountered in all the six hundred VNs I've played)

 

 

 

Komorebi no Nostalgica (released at about the same time as Hapymaher, also has an excellent soundtrack)

 

Evolimit (there are no bad Propeller soundtracks)

 

Dies Irae (obviously)

Have you actually played all the vns on the list or just listened to their soundtracks?

Yes, I played all of them; it would be weird to vote on VN's based on their soundtracks xD

Also, thanks everyone~ I'll definitely try my hand at some of these!

I'm also a soundtrack nut, and I'm a huge fan of Key soundtracks, but it seems you've already played the two VNs of theirs that I think are their best (Little Busters! and Rewrite). So, here's a few other suggestions that I also think have excellent soundtracks. I'm only going to link the BGM that you're going to hear more often, rather than OP/ED/insert songs:

Comyu has a funky electronic soundtrack. I really enjoy its down-tempo jazzier moments, but unfortunately I couldn't find my favorite piece from the OST on youtube (named Strategy Time), but this is probably my second-favorite. You'll hear it a lot. It may even sound a little generic initially, but it'll grow on you:

From Sekien no Inganock, my favorite track is actually the BGM for the H-scenes. Based on my limited experience, it may actually be the only good music that has ever appeared in an H-scene in any VN, ever. The soundtrack from this VN is kind of short, but it is excellent. The OST reflects the melancholy atmosphere at times, but at others it punctuates the sweeter moments with lovely, gentle piano tracks. Action scenes have customary action tracks, and, the H scene music is searingly passionate. This VN's soundtrack may very well be perfect.

Actually, both of the games I've played in the Steampunk series have wonderful soundtracks. I love Gahkthun of the Golden Lightning as well, and while its soundtrack is sometimes only ok, at its best it is nothing short of magnificent. I will link the second-best song from the soundtrack here. You shouldn't listen to the whole Gahkthun soundtrack except in the context of the game, because everybody deserves to hear the very best Gahkthun song in its one and only appearance in the context of the game; the climax of the VN, with that BGM, is my favorite moment in any VN. But the second-best track, while completely different, is damn good too:

KonoSora, as much as the English translation is a butchery, is still a great game and has a gorgeous soundtrack. The art and music both shine, and are at their best when they're reflecting the upbeat and cheerful tempo of the characters and events in the VN:

You know, after putting all that down, I really, really want to play KonoSora again.

Edit: I should add that I thought we initially had similar taste, until I saw your F/SN rating. But hey, everybody's different, right? At any rate, I hope something I recommended strikes a chord - but given the strong Little Busters! resonance, I'd bet on KonoSora being the right recommendation for you.

Umineko's OST is god tier, it's INCREDIBLE. And I don't even really like half the tracks on there, but that variety! That ambience! That talent! Nothing tops Umineko's OST overall.

Couple examples of mine from Umineko:

 

 

As for runner-ups, I'll go with Zero Escape duology and Danganronpa duology.

(There are better tracks from both Zero Escape games but those are elevated to the "legendary" status they are by hearing them ingame, this is a more immediately enjoyable track)

 

Danganronpa's OST isn't too strong overall but there are several 10/10 tracks in there. Mostly upbeat stuff, the series doesn't have a decent sad song.
