Whether classic or modern, chip-tune or orchestral, I love music from video games. If you love video games, but haven’t tried working or browsing the Internet to your favorite video game music, it’s definitely worth a try. It’s like a loophole that allows you to enjoy games while doing something more productive. There is a debate over whether video games are truly art, but the music alone qualifies them- in my opinion, video game pieces encompass some of the most powerful music of our time. It can also help your focus (like classical music), stimulate your creative juices, and instantly put you in a better mood.
However, if you’re like me, your productivity may wane as you begin to compile playlists of the best video game music. Luckily, Spotify makes it easier than ever before to find music and compile playlists without having to buy a bunch of music (or resort to less savory methods). It also lets me share the fruits of my labor with you (if you haven’t downloaded Spotify yet, it’s well worth it). Link to the “best video game music playlist” after the jump!
