Top 10 Relaxing Video Game Music

Video game soundtracks are largely comprised of themes that are empowering, tense, intriguing, foot-moving, and blood-pumping. Occasionally, though, you run across video game music that makes you chill, perhaps even to the point that you get a little drowsy.

While they might cut short the play-sessions of the sleepy gamer, these select tracks can have tangible benefits outside of their games of origin. When you’re stressed out, fed up, or having a hard time finding your way to slumberland, a collection of soothing video game music can be invaluable.

Out of my personal playlist of 50 relaxing video game music tracks, here are the 10 that I find the most effective, in order of most chill-inducing last:

#10: Demon’s Crest: Memorial of the Fallen Ones

#9: Chrono Cross: Dream of the Shore Near Another World

#8: Final Fantasy VIII: Find Your Way

#7: Culdcept Saga: Fateful Morning (Second Half)

#6: Castlevania: Symphony of the Night: Lost Painting

#5: Xenogears: Ship of Regret and Sleep

#4: StarCraft: Protoss 2

#3: Final Fantasy VII: You Can Hear the Cry of the Planet

#2: Final Fantasy X: To Zanarkand

#1: Final Fantasy VIII: Balamb Garden
