Listen To Game Informer's Favorite Songs of 2018

Video games may be our primary passion, but several Game Informer staff members are also music aficionados. Each year, we like to share the soundtrack to our lives with readers with the off-chance that maybe our tastes and interests converge in more ways than one. With 26 contributors, the yearly compilation is quite eclectic. Expect many transitions into new genres as you meander through the long playlist.

If you want to get right to the good stuff, here is some guidance for fans of particular music genres. The hip-hop voyage starts with Kendrick Lamar and SZA's collaboration "All the Stars." From there it transitions to a groove-centric section starring music from Janelle Monae, Sia, and other ass shakers. 

Punk/metal fans should make sure to check out Idles, Daughters, Windhand, and Behemoth. More of a regular rocker? Give Ty Segall, Superchunk, and Snail Mail a listen.

Enjoy, and share your favorite songs of the year in the comments section below!
