4. The Last of Us – Ending/ The Path: A New Beginning
What to say. The Last of Us is widely regarded as one of the best games of the last generation, and I’d argue that it’s actually got one of the best soundtracks of the last generation, too. Ranging from tense, fast-paced beats to slow, relaxing (yet eerily sinister) guitar melodies, TLOU’s soundtrack is like no other.
It demonstrates this no better than in the final cutscene, or rather, at the end of it. Essentially, the biggest story moment in the entire game was accompanied and drastically improved by Gustavo Santaolalla’s fantastic “The Path: A New Beginning.” It’s an incredible piece, and complements the ending perfectly. Have you played TLOU yet? You’re missing out, if not.
