12. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, by Jeremy Soule
This swords-and-dragons epic has a suitably epic soundtrack, provided by Jeremy Soule. For the recordings, Soule enlisted a 30-strong choir of barbarian voices singing in the game's own invented language. It's perhaps no surprise to learn that Soule is known as 'the John Williams of video game soundtracks' - this is symphonic, tuneful and exciting, and it even made the Classic FM Hall of Fame!
