Best Gaming Soundtrack of 2017

Best Soundtrack of 2017 – Nominees

PlayStation LifeStyle is doing our year-end awards slightly different from previous years. We wanted to put more importance on the act of getting nominated for an award, so we limited each category to five games. That’s not many, especially in a year stacked with great games like 2017 was, so it took a lot of careful deliberation to simply come up with each list.

As far as soundtracks go, it was a phenomenal year in gaming. The year started off strong with games like NieR: Automata and Persona 5 impressing with their original music, and that momentum carried on throughout the year. It was extremely difficult to narrow down this list to just five amazing soundtracks.

Without further adieu, check out PlayStation LifeStyle’s nominees for our Best Soundtrack of 2017 award below:

The winner of our Best Soundtrack of 2017 award will be announced next week on Monday, December 25. It will be a part of a week-long celebration of the best PlayStation 4 and Vita titles of 2017. Ultimately, it’ll conclude on Friday, December 29, where we’ll reveal PlayStation LifeStyle’s Game of the Year 2017. This year will go down as one of the greatest years of gaming ever, so we’re very excited to unveil all of our picks!

Of course, we’d also love to hear what you think. Let us know in the comments below what you believe is the best soundtrack of the year, and which nominee you’ll think will win the award! Will NieR: Automata‘s phenomenal soundtrack help it top the list? Or will Persona 5 be able to win due to its catchy jazz tunes? You’ll find out next week!
