I use it for watching movies with my family. It plays just about anything, but I don’t think it plays video game music in native formats, but could be wrong.

It plays video game music. It will play the older Nintendo entertainment music games music known as NSF. You will need to find plug ins for the rest of the video game music out there. Not sure on how to find that stuff. You've got the GameBoy format, GameCube format, Nintendo 64 format, Sega, Super Nintendo, and other formats you would have to find plug ins for.
