Different Video Game Soundtracks for Different Occasions

Most of our content here at We Rave You focuses on dance music for both individual artists and record labels. However, we also like to explore other genres and types of music as well with video games a key interest point for many of our writers. Indeed, playing video games is one of our favorite alternative activities and most modern games have a soundtrack to make things a bit more memorable. For something a little different we thought we would look at the types of video game soundtracks that are suitable for the various activities that we all enjoy at some point or another.

Video Game Soundtracks for Studying

A lot of us will have to study at some point in our lives and many of us enjoy a little music while we do so. EDM isn’t always the best choice for when you want to concentrate and the key for many is to be as productive as possible. We’ve picked out a couple of games that stand out for their soundtracks and SimCity 2013 is an excellent choice.

There is a sense of urgency in this soundtrack that actually instilled a calmness in many of us when we listened to it and for that reason, it has made our studying list. Try it out next time you have to pour over the books and you can download music bingo boards here.

The second soundtrack that we feel is suitable for studying is the Undertale soundtrack. The result is music that offers a mixture of musical motifs that we found particularly easy to study to. This soundtrack helped stimulate the brain and had us writing and outputting some of our best work so it’s most definitely worth listening to.

For Running/Exercise

A melodic intensity is what you should be seeking when looking for a video game soundtrack to run or exercise to. Assassin’s Creed 3 is top of our list for this reason and although you might not be jumping from building to building like you do in this fantasy video game, the soundtrack will fill you with the idea that you are being chased. It’s one of our favorites for this reason and is an excellent choice for those looking to go for a run or do some exercise outdoors.

For Falling Asleep

There are plenty of games with relaxing soundtracks but Minecraft is up there as one of the best. For this reason, we feel that it is particularly suitable for those who are looking to fall asleep to a bit of music. If you’re a fan of video games then there is every chance that you will have at least tried the popular building block RPG. The music is unobtrusive and minimalistic making it an effective sleep aid for those that like to fall asleep to music. It offers calming and soothing sounds that will have you dozing off in no time at all.
