List of games that use Red Book CD audio

From PCGamingWiki, the wiki about fixing PC games

This is a list of games on PCGamingWiki marked as using Red Book CD audio (CD-DA tracks streamed from the game CD while playing; often misspelled Redbook), leading to oftentimes superior sound quality compared to other contemporary games, but also leads to no music when the games are played on Windows XP and later unless patches and hacks are used.

The nature of this feature, means that it only applies to the retail CD disc releases of these games.

Games that include CD audio tracks on the disc but do not use them in-game are not listed.
