New York, NY (Top40 Charts) FIFA has without a doubt become one of the most iconic and influential video games of our generation; it has influenced the gaming preferences of millions of gamers worldwide. Equally iconic are the soundtracks of FIFA which have defined the music taste of many individuals and are part of unforgettable memories for many. Being a curated selection of one-of-a-kind songs, every track has been iconic and praised by many experts and reviewers. The FIFA soundtrack defines a specific era and the music culture at that time.

The importance of FIFA soundtracks in increasing the gameplay experience and making the game sublime cannot be overlooked. When the first "woo-hoos" by Blur in the indoor arenas of FIFA 98 entered the ears of thousands of viewers, it became an essential part of the gaming experience and a simple piece of college rock transformed into an insuperable classic which still resides in the minds of individuals. FIFA soundtracks really came into the limelight in the 2000s; these soundtracks became the go-to music for many FIFA fans and music lovers worldwide.


In recent years there is a growing anticipation among FIFA fans and enthusiasts to listen to the FIFA soundtracks whenever EA sports releases a newer version of the game. This anticipation has also helped EA sports to generate more sales and the company has been able to make a huge profit. In-game experiences are crucial to keep the players motivated - and the modern gaming industry relies on this principle in order to deliver premium gaming experience. It is relevant not only while talking about FIFA, but also in the fast-developing world of online gambling. Modern gamers, while visiting a popular online casino in Ireland, are invited to dive deep into a gaming experience as immersive as FIFA was back in the day - and this time it is available from any smartphone.


Apart from the economic impact, the soundtracks for the FIFA games represent and define the music of that particular year. As we have seen over the years, with every new edition of the game the soundtracks also evolved with the culture and represented the music trends at that time. When asked about the soundtracks of FIFA games the president of music for EA Steve Schnur said that the FIFA soundtracks are hand-picked to represent the next generation.

Due to all these factors, FIFA soundtracks are more than just a feature of the game, they represent a culture, they influence the direction in which video game music will proceed in the future and are a source of precious memories for countless individuals. Only a FIFA player knows the thrill and motivation of hearing the soundtrack in the lobby in between matches and the adrenaline rush experienced at the time. The time spent in the menu of the game represents a huge portion of the total time spent in game and that makes the soundtrack even more essential and important.

Sound design and lots of other factors are vital in creating an unforgettable in-game experience. In the words of Steve Schnur himself "the music you listen to, defines your life".
