Game music is composed in such a way as to avoid noisy, complex melodies, too many variations of rhythm and song lyrics, and at the same time, it has an uplifting feel. This is done to prevent the player from getting distracted by the music and losing focus on what really matters: the game.
Likewise, we can use these soundtracks to better focus on studies, work, or physical activities. Here are 6 game songs for you to focus on:
The Last of Us (2013)
If you like lighter music, this is the soundtrack for you. Composed by the Argentine Gustavo Santaolalla, the soundtrack has slower and smoother tracks, but that have rhythm changes that prevent the listener from falling into a routine, always surprising them and keeping them awake.
God of War (2018)
The ideal soundtrack for those who enjoy music with stronger notes and an epic feel. Composed by Bear McCreary, the soundtrack has low notes and fast, emotional tracks, with background voices, in keeping with the game’s theme.
Darksiders 2 (2012)
Composed by Jesper Kyd, the soundtrack mixes high notes and a Celtic character with deep and stimulating notes, but at the same time, very light to the ear. It’s a stimulating soundtrack with an upbeat rhythm that keeps you alert and willing to keep producing.
Uncharted – Drake’s Fortune (2007)
Composed by Greg Edmonson, this soundtrack has an adventurous feel, with contagious and fast rhythms, which make this track ideal for when you want to stay alert and produce with speed.
Assassin’s Creed Revelations (2011)
Composed by Jesper Kyd and Lorne Balfe, this soundtrack combines the epic air of God of War with the light notes of The Last Of Us, stimulating your concentration and productivity through the few variations in rhythm, which create a feeling of constancy in the rhythm, preventing your productivity from falling.
Dante’s Inferno (2010)
Composed by Gary Schyman and Paul Gorman, the soundtrack follows the same line as God of War: it has harmonic rhythm changes that encourage you to produce at the same speed as the music. The soundtrack is loaded with epic tones that will keep you awake and alert during the production of your activity.
The soundtracks mentioned here last approximately one hour each. It may seem small if the working time is extensive, but make no mistake! The songs are catchy and neutral, so you can listen to them over and over again without getting bored!
