Listen to Game Front’s Ultimate Game Music Playlist on Spotify
Here at Game Front, we’re pretty big fans of video game music. Some incredible tracks and scores have come out of the medium of games over the years, from the soaring, epic heights of the Final Fantasy series to the goofy ’80s-inspired pop of Double Dragon Neon. We love it all.
Not too long ago, we had an idea: Why not create a little something that shows our love of game music that we can share? So over the course of the next few weeks, we took to free music streaming service Spotify and started digging up all the best game soundtracks we could find. We picked through some of gaming’s greatest tracks and compiled a playlist. And you can listen to it.
While the list is a little limited by what’s available on Spotify, we’re still really proud of what we’ve been able to achieve and pull together. But wait — you don’t have to listen to the crap we deem to be the best of the best in game music (on Spotify). We’ve actually created two Spotify lists: the first is Game Front’s curated picks; the second is an open collaboration between us and all of you, the readers, to create your own (potentially massive) ultimate game music list. All you have to do is subscribe to the reader-curated list and you can add to it. Share it through Spotify with others and they can add to it. And we’re excited to see what you come up with.
We’ve laid down our base of tracks on the reader-curated list to give everyone a place to start, but feel free to go nuts. As for our curated list, it’s best enjoyed on shuffle.
Enough yammering: Go listen. This link gets you Game Front’s Ultimate Video Game Music Playlist (embedded above); pull it open and hit subscribe. And this link gets you to Game Front’s Reader-Curated Ultimate Game Music Playlist (embedded below). Make it your own.
