Music has inspired many things, one of them being games. Over the years, video games and other types of games have either been based on music or used as a source of inspiration. And it’s still one of the most popular genres today.
1. Rock Band
Rock Band is a legendary music-based video game series that is still talked about today. There are many single-player music games out there, and they’re fun, as you’ll find out later, but Rock Band introduced the collaborative element to great effect. Music is for everyone, and so is Rock Band, with players of all ages enjoying one of the best party games of all time. They can sing and play instruments, making music in line with what appears on the screen. Rock Band and all the instalments that followed inspired a lot of music-based gaming content that followed, and the creators Harmonix deserve a lot of credit for that.
2. Guns N’ Roses
We mentioned how music has inspired all manner of games, and online slots are on that list. Nowadays, several established online casinos include an extensive listing of games inspired by famous names in the music business. There are quite a few video slots that take inspiration from music artists, but the branded Guns N’ Roses game by NetEnt is one of the best. This is because NetEnt takes their branded slots very seriously, so there are Guns N’ Roses tracks that play, and winning spins will see clips from live band performances appear. You’ve arguably got the perfect combination when you add to that excellent bonus features and winning potential.
3. Just Dance
Like Rock Band, Just Dance was a game that was one of the first of its type on the scene. As you will gather from the game’s title, Just Dance is a video game that is all about dancing. And, as you need music to dance to, it’s a game with a bit of everything. Again, akin to Rock Band, Just Dance is a party game where you can get involved with all the biggest hits alongside family and friends. And you can also battle against them, which adds more fun and a competitive element to proceedings. There are plenty of instalments of Just Dance out there, too, with the game playable on mats that connect to consoles, so there are plenty of songs and styles to master.
We’ve included one online slot game, but we just have to include another branded NetEnt title. And this time, it’s Motörhead. Motörhead is one of the most successful and iconic rock bands ever, and you’ll be able to listen to their hit tracks as the reels spin, which is excellent. Visually, Motörhead is another impressive NetEnt release, and the background of the game is a stage, which adds to the atmosphere and sets the scene well. There are also good prizes up for grabs, primarily via the free spins bonus round, which is the best feature of the game.
