The boring one
In fact, every time I was hearing the Trigun opening, I was thinking of how it would be fitting for a car race videogame.


You can visualize the whole circuit, the turns, the jumps, the skid at the arrival... šŸ˜¶

Definitely has a Gran Turismo 2 feeling.

The Gunsmith Cats intro remind me of Gungrave. This would be a track on the game. Guy who did the song is Peter Erskine. He did music for The Weather Channel back in the '90s.

This is a Child of Eden song. Or something that would be a spiritual successor to the game. Rez work too.

This song reminds me something out of Final Fantasy, particularly "To Zankarkand" from FFX which I've not played, but found the song to be pretty remarkable.

Various slower and melancholic songs by The National remind me of Portal 2, because their song 'Exile Vilify' was featured on one of the hidden radios in that game.

The album 'Lungs' by Florence and the Machine is full of bangers, but it also reminds me of Guild Wars: Eye of the North because I remember it being on in the background when I played it.

Either a Sonic Adventure 2 Knuckles stage, or something you would hear in Bloody Roar.

A little spin on this topic, for some reason whenever I hear anything from Hozier now the first person I think about is a game developer. Who might that be?

Add this song to another Sonic carnival, amusement park, or pinball stage. It's a Michael Jackson song too.

Half of the Gorillaz self-titled first album can fit into GTA2 or GTA III. It's shocking how none of their songs have ever gotten into a GTA or Saints Row game. It's full of timeless late 90s/early 2000s energy.

Another fit for Street Fighter II and Alpha, or the Fatal Fury franchise.

For some reason this song reminds me of Hollow Knight. Probably because it was on my mind as I played it through in december last year; I am sure there are other games that it can be better associated with.
