The Kotaku Mixtape Vol. 10 - Westerns

Everybody loves cowboys. They're as American as apple pie, they're hard boiled gunslingers and most importantly they have some of the best theme songs of any hero you'll meet, hands down.

Today on the Kotaku Mixtape, we're looking at the best music to appear in Wild West video games. From that wackyness of Zan: The Samurai Gunman to the Peckinpah ruggedness of John Marston. Sure, there are a few Ennio Morricone sound-alikes kicking around in there, but who cares? It's the Wild West, baby.


Wild Arms - Into The Wilderness

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time - Gerudo Valley

Bastion - Spike in a Rail

Red Dead Redemption - Far Away

God Hand- Bronco Buster

Freddy Pharkas Frontier Pharmacist - The Ballad

Outlaws - Anna's Theme

Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath - Fighting Outlaws 1

    No "Deadman's Gun"?


    I bawled like a two year old at Deadman's Gun!

    Compass from RDR is my favourite that is not listed.

    The time it plays in the game for the first time was just perfect.
