Here's the link, there's a Shuffle option: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL719789CCE8C818B5

Well I think this might be one of my first threads. If you're a fan of video game music and searched for it on YouTube, chances are that you've stumbled upon a couple of my "SupraDarky's favorite VGMs" videos. I've been doing it for more than 5 years now (crazy!).

A couple months ago, I completed my Master and decided to upload the playlist that helped me go through most of my studies. I've been getting tons of great feedback with a lot of people saying it's helping them as well. It's still growing (about 4 hours 10 hours of music right now). You end up associating the tracks with studying, which allows you to immediately turn your concentration on when needed in a pleasant way. I still use this playlist to surf the web sometimes as well.

Dolphin's Intrigue is a perfect sample, especially starting at this part with the constant bass melody. Just gets me in the groove right away.

I'm pretty sure midterms are around the corner, so I thought now was good time to let some of you VGM fans know about it and maybe help you go through the study grind! Hopefully some of you enjoy it.

SupraDarky, you rock. I've been listening to your playlists for years on YouTube. GREAT stuff, seriously. You're one of my favorite YouTubers.

Thanks so much for this relaxing playlist. :-)

This playlist should be very helpful for me, I'm always looking for non-distracting background music.

Been subscribed to you for a while Supra, and for good reason. I had a list of relaxing videogame music of my own, but it was comprised of picks from your channel!

Keep up the great work, and thanks.

Memory of Lightwaves from the FFX-2 OST

Possibly my favorite "relaxing" video game piece of music.

Hey Supra - I mentioned I had a similar playlist sitting around (Chill Videogame Music) made up of mostly your music picks. You're welcome to look it over to see if you like anything from it and add it to your playlist, since I know I'll be adding things to it from yours.

Honestly, nothing else comes close to me. Nostalgia, emotion, a feeling that I'm traveling through time to a time when life was simpler, the music really is untouchable to me.

That's a great suggestion, I've added some tracks from it and Resort. I had 3 tracks from those games in my MP3 playlist but forgot to add them on YouTube.

If you're taking suggestions, the Kirby games have plenty of music that can be added to this list.
