If you're a video gamer, you NEED to know about this new Spotify feature
It looks like the millions of people who play video games religiously have finally caught the attention of the music world. Spotify released a new feature that is solely dedicated to connecting users with video game music they love!
The site’s employees curate playlists that are a mix of full original soundtracks from games users are already familiar with as well as a mashup of similar themed songs that can be played for #gameinginspo. The playlist titles alone are worth a glance or two.Some that catch the eye right away are “RetroWave/Outrun” and “Power Gaming.”
The announcement has a lot of people on social media buzzing with excitement.
Video game music has been one the the medium’s coolest features since games began. From 8-bit tunes to modern orchestral scores written by world-famous composers, the thematic, often-wordless scores can rival movie music at it’s best. They also can make a heck of a workout playlist, as battling monsters and crushing that chest-press turn out to be pretty close cousins!
All hail to Spotify, finally bringing in one of music’s coolest niches to the mainstream!
