It’s that time of year again! Last year’s game music podcast seemed to go over much better than I expected a two-hour show to, so let’s do the same thing for the soundtracks from this year. And once again I’m looking for reader (listener?) input to help put the thing together and narrow down a top 10 list.

The rules are pretty much the same as last year. Vote here to rate each of the twenty shortlisted games and add in any comments if you have them (you can also use that section to tell me if neglected to include certain soundtracks). Since some of them were included in last year’s show, the voting excludes games that were released in other regions last year like Bravely Default, but not ones like Fantasy Life that I previously forgot about. I’ve also excluded any games with an English release confirmed for next year like Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate – save it for the 2015 list! There are a handful of games like Guacamelee on the list that were released on other platforms last year, but as 2014 was their first showing on a Nintendo platform they’re up for voting.

So please get your votes in and look forward to the final podcast whenever it posts. Maybe there’ll be guests or co-hosts this time? Who can say. Since I’ll be out of the country for a while – I’ll probably have left by the time this posts – don’t expect any results until mid-January at the earliest. That’s kind of late for a retrospective, but I’m sure you’re all sick of top-10 lists at the moment. I know I sure am after putting together all that Nintendo DS stuff.

Vote here for the best soundtracks of 2014!

Hey everyone, it’s Patrick here. I might not be part of the usual podcast crew, but this year I’m trying to put together a podcast showcasing the very best of game music from throughout the year.

While there’s plenty of music from this year that I personally love, I want to know what everyone’s favourite soundtracks are so I’ve put a short poll together. OK, so it’s not really that short, but hopefully people won’t be wondering why their favourite game wasn’t included on the poll. I’ll leave it to you decide what constitutes a game from 2013 – I’ve included some games like Bravely Default on the list, even though it will technically be released three years in a row. Of course, it’s also limited to Nintendo consoles, partly because of the name of the site and partly because no-one wants to edit a 10-hour podcast.

Let your voice heard through this handy dandy voting form and I might just read your comments out on the podcast.

Update: Thanks to everyone who participated in the poll. I’m tabulating the results now so I won’t be counting any new votes. Merry Christmas!
