Video games can have brilliantly-composed soundtracks in-game that are rarely enjoyed after playing. Sad considering the amount of effort to create sound that invigorates action and story.
Ambient noise from video games you play now or have played in the past can bring a calm that helps your work. A familiar place.
Use specific soundtracks to relax or focus your mind. Consider what sounds can enrich your experience to enhance progress down the path.
Depending on what area you’re working in (body, mind, spirit) music with lyrics may be more distraction than focus enhancer. Avoid lyrical sounds while in the mind and spirit realms.
Even if you do not play games, game soundtracks can be of use to you. Many have few to no words which allow you to focus on your work and not spoken words hanging in the air. Similar value lives in soundtracks of film and tv.
Skyrim Ambient Music
Skyrim is one of the most popular RPGs ever made. The publisher, Bethesda, has released Skyrim more times than new games since it’s original release in 2011.
The Skyrim soundtrack was composed by Jeremy Soule. Soule produced the soundtracks for 60 other games. He produced 51 tracks for Skyrim, all without words, that give a wide selection of options to match the vibe. Most of them are on YouTube in ambient video format and we have them listed below.
