The Destructoid Jumbo Game Music Playlist!

0

All the best games, in your ears!

Looking for a new Spotify playlist to have on in the background while you work/play games/polish your duelling swords? The writers at Destructoid have a wonderful present for you! Don't worry, it's 100% free, with no strings (or teeth, or surprise grenades, or whoopie cushions) attached.

Here is our jumbo games music playlist, with over 10 hours of both licensed and OST tracks from a wide range of different games. That's longer than the theatrical version of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, or an entire season of The Simpsons, or a full workday! What a treat.

There's a full track listing below, with who requested which track, the game of origin and when the game was released. Some of the writers added the tracks themselves, while I added them to the playlist for other contributors. My personal favourites are in bold. Enjoy, subscribe and share widely on social media!
