Help me make a videogame music playlist

I was gonna say just throw the Bastion and Transistor soundtrack on loop and you'd be good to go, but someone else beat me to the recommendation.

Otherwise if you want some mellow background stuff, look up music by Chris Christodoulou. He did the soundtrack for Risk of Rain and Deadbolt and both are perfect background listening. Examples:

Here's a little something for you, Johnny. Have fun!

CoCage:

These two are definitely going in. I love Akira + Elizabeth McGlynn, I tend to remember the Shadows of the Damned OST as more metal. Is the other track from Anarchy Reigns?

I like it, didn't know about the guy. I've tried chiptune bands like Anamanaguchi and she and they're a bit too techno and rapid-fire for background music. But this cuts it perfectly.

Yes, the Jazz House track is from Anarchy Reigns (called Max Anarchy in Japan).

Oops. Sorry, my brain somehow ommited the part about the bookstore.

HM has calmer tracks in its soundtrack too:

I can probably string those Grim Fandango tracks as one song, many of the tracks in the playlist already blend together because of how similar they sound like.

I'd say Bastion, but everyone and their brother bet me to it.\

Slow and mellow, you say? Hyper Light Drifter is pretty good, though it may sound a bit too videogame-esque.

Anything from Really Slow Motion.

Some of my absolute favourites;

Thank you all for the recommendations. I'm currently at 1 hour 24 minutes. Still adding songs, if anybody wants to make any more suggestions. I'll make an updated list of the playlist soon.
