Music is an art form and cultural activity whose medium is sound organized in time. The common elements of music are pitch (which governs melody and harmony), rhythm (and its associated concepts tempo, meter, and articulation), dynamics (loudness and softness), and the sonic qualities of timbre and texture (which are sometimes termed the "color" of a musical sound). Different styles or types of music may emphasize, de-emphasize or omit some of these elements.
It makes no difference how the music is made or played whether techno or otherwise, every music which is usually used by the sinners is not permissible to play or listen to.
It would all depend on what type of music it is, playing in the background of the game.
I'm sure you know that there is halal music, and there is haram music. Should the music be music that is commonly used for haram gatherings, or have explicit language, the you can play the game, but mute the sound.
Ultimately, you are the one who decides whether it is appropriate to listen to, or not, and your judgment should be based on your correct understanding of halal/haram music.
And Allah knows best.

if the tunes of the vocals do not resemble those suitable for gatherings of corruption, there is no problem and it is actually encouraged; otherwise it is haram.
With prayers for your success.
Listening to songs is not permissible whether you understand the lyrics or not.
Music which is used usually by the sinners is Haraam.
After doing your best to prevent or stop wrong, you will not be responsible for the sins of others even at your own home. You must do whatever you can, and no more than your ability.
Music which is used by sinners is Haraam.
Our leading scholars stated that learning music is not permissible. Working with music is also not permissible.
However, you should be certain that you are comfortable with this because you and your children will live with it. Not only does a musician have to practice (and sometimes record) at home, but children often inherit musical talent and interests. So it is something you should look into your heart and see if it is the right future for you (or whoever is thinking of getting married).
Also, if you don't respect or agree with your husband's work, it might cause conflict between you two.
Music which is usually used by the sinners is forbidden. Even praising Allah (SWT) and the Prophet (SAWA) and Ahlul Bayt (AS) is not allowed if it comes with music which is usually used by sinners.
Any music used usually by the sinners is not permissible according to most of our leading scholars (Maraaji' of Taqleed).
Thank you for your question. While the application of the criteria for halal and haram music is upon the muqallid, that does not mean that the criteria itself is completely subjective. There are some genres of music as well as songs that are clearly impermissible. At the same time, there are other genres of music and songs that are clearly permissible. But the judgement of thr muqallid is more of a factor in the grey areas, where if one person consider the criteria to apply to a specific piece of music making it haram, whereas another person may find it halal using the same criteria. It is worth mentioning that the rulings of the Maraja and the criteria they have set for halal and haram music also varies and so it is possible for a piece of music to be halal according to one criteria and haram according to another.
May you always be successful
