Relaxing PS1 video game music to help you study, work, or simply catch your breath with a hint of nostalgia.

Today, I returned to work after 5 days off for Easter. It was a very hectic morning and I needed something to relax and this 2-hour video of PS1 video game music came through.

It’s packed full of some of the most calming OSTs the PlayStation had to offer, from Final Fantasy VII to Chrono Cross, Resident Evil to Parasite Eve. I never got to play many of the games from the tracklist but I would have adored the music as a kid.

Stream the video below and peep the tracklist underneath.
