Music for Gaming: 8mm  
This would probably make a great soundtrack for a horror game. The heavy use of Middle Eastern-sounding music would also make it good for games set in that area. The more incidental-sounding tracks are generic enough to be used in any modern time period, whether that be the '20s or the 2000s.

This may not include every track on the album, as some of them don't work as background music for gaming. For an explanation of how I define the terms for each field, see here.
