Gamers and producers have a lot in common, including sitting in one seat for extended periods of time, staring at screens. Unsurprisingly, most of your favorite producers are also gamers.

The love of gaming can go hand-in-hand with the love of making music at times, and video game sounds and soundtracks have been ripe for the picking for years. And while electronic music producers sampling/flipping video games can be seen as the pinnacle of electronic nerdery, the results are also pretty awesome. Take a look at some of these dance tracks that sound just like video games.
