Most romantic video game love songs

Sad, cheerful, heartbreaking… video game themes can be truly romantic. Here’s our pick for the best love songs from games.

“Eternal Promise” – Tales Of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World

To avoid any spoilers, let’s just say this is Emil and Marta’s theme and it plays during a particularly moving scene in Altamira, under the night sky.

“Id (Serenity)” – Fire Emblem Awakening

A song that brings Professor Layton or Animal Crossing to the mind of many players, it’s unforgettable for hardcore Fire Emblem fans.

8

“Manny & Meche” – Grim Fandango

A very particular love song (and love story), this tango is Manny Calavera and Mercedes “Meche” Colomar’s love theme from the classic graphic adventure Grim Fandango.

7

“Aeris’s (Aerith’s) Theme” – Final Fantasy VII (Advent Children)

One of the saddest songs and one of the most heartbreaking moments in the history of video games (don’t think you need a spoiler alert for this one).

This lovely piano version is from the Advent Children game, which takes place two years after the events of Final Fantasy VII.

“Room of Angel” – Silent Hill

One of the few songs on the list with lyrics (most video games themes are instrumental), “Room of Angel” is a great example of the amazing score of the Silent Hill games.

Composed by Akira Yamaoka, with lyrics written by Joe Romersa and series writer Hiroyuki Owaku, and sung by Mary Elizabeth McGlynn, this song from the fantastic Silent Hill 4: The Room plays during the start-menu sequence when the screen is left idle (the game’s trailer), during the opening credits (with no lyrics), and during a particular death scene.

5

“Mario and Peach’s Theme” – Paper Mario

They never kiss on the lips, Peach “friendzones” Mario all the time, yet they’re still one of the most famous couples in video games. They had to have a love theme.

4

“Suteki da ne” – Final Fantasy X

A magical song for a magical moment in Final Fantasy X featuring the lovely relationship between Yuna and Tidus (also known to shipping fans as Tiduna!).

3

“Time Travel” – Professor Layton and the Unwound Future

Professor Layton is a gentleman, and we’d never seen him flirt with anyone until we got to see a bit of his past in Professor Layton and the Unwound Future.

This lovely song (instrumental version but there’s also one with Japanese lyrics) is Hershel and Claire’s theme. The game’s ending made lots of hardcore (and not so hardcore) fans shed a tear!

“Zelda’s Lullaby” – The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

Try to listen to this beautiful song and not smile 🙂

“Zelda’s Lullaby” from Skyward Sword is a version of the classic “Princess Zelda” theme from the iconic Ocarina of Time.
