Mind games, love games, and actual games have given us something to sing about for decades. '90s break-out boy band, The Backstreet Boys, peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100s chart with their debut hit, "Quit Playin' Games (With My Heart)" in 1997. Diana Ross poses a great question with her song, "Why Play Games," because in matters of love, what's the point of messing around with someone's emotions, and, more importantly, how can we spot a player? Dolly Parton puts players' motives on blast with her tune, "Games People Play."

No matter what the reason behind playing a game, you're sure to find a song in your preferred genre on this list. Vote up the best songs about games, and be sure to let us know what you think in the comment section.
