Gaming's greatest victory jingles

A giant compendium of some of the most uplifting tunes you'll ever hear

Usually defined as a loud fanfare that typically lasts no more than a few seconds, these jingles helped make a lot of tough games more bearable, and they%26rsquo;re still a staple of modern games (if not as frequently seen). In some cases, they%26rsquo;ve become even more recognizable than the games themselves. They%26rsquo;re also fun to listen to on their own, so we pulled together a list of our favorites for your ear-based enjoyment.


After graduating from college in 2000 with a BA in journalism, I worked for five years as a copy editor, page designer and videogame-review columnist at a couple of mid-sized newspapers you've never heard of. My column eventually got me a freelancing gig with GMR magazine, which folded a few months later. I was hired on full-time by GamesRadar in late 2005, and have since been paid actual money to write silly articles about lovable blobs.
