All the music from all the games. All in one place.
Music in games is something that is often overlooked when done well but is the focus of much critique when done not-so-well. As a result, the quality and appositeness of a soundtrack can make or break the game for which it was produced.
It is clear, however, that a huge number of people do greatly enjoy game music, myself included. I am sure it was with this in mind that Spotify released a new ‘Gaming’ genre in which all game music currently available on the streaming platform is collected for our auditory pleasure. From Hans Zimmer’s atmospheric work on ‘Modern Warfare 2’, to Gustavo Santaolalla’s diverse ‘The Last of Us’ soundtrack, this vast collection of incredible music is available for free on almost every platform besides Xbox (what’s up with that, Spotify?).
Another feature of this new genre are the curated ‘Guest Lists’. These are playlists created by some of the most prominent figures in the gaming industry such as Polygon and Engadget. Guest Lists are not only composed of music from games but also tracks that the curator is inclined to listen to while gaming themselves.
All of this can be found over at Spotify Gaming. I will see you all there.
