Every other Wednesday I share a playlist of songs tangentially related to a single game or series. Songs about alien sex for Mass Effect, songs about world leaders for Civilization, and so on. Searching for random terms on Spotify is a great way to discover new music and rediscover old classics. Make requests to @USPodcast on Twitter.
PC gamers of a specific age will likely have happy memories of messing with the Roller Coaster Tycoon. It took management sims to the sandbox -- like The Sims was largely a toy for architecture and interior design, it was really about going nuts and creating crazy rides. It's also the subject of this half-hour playlist of great punk, folk, and prog music.
