What is this... I don't even.

Natural minor and major scales are about as "melodic" as it gets, but any scale is only as melodic as you make it. I think what you want to learn are phrases and perhaps how to utilize your scales in an improvisation over different kinds of chord progressions.

playing scales straight ahead could be very boring..but play melodic patterns withing the scale and your playing takes on a whole new direction...do a web search...type in melodic patterns for guitar....that should keep you busy for a very long time

play well

Scales are only more melodic than one another when you playing chords, not soloing.
What do you guys listen to when playing video games?

People say the major scale is melodic. That's true, but only if you know what you're doing.

If you don't know what you're doing it's easier to improvise melodically using just the notes from pentatonic scales. There's less chance of dissonance.

If you don't mind your music sounding like folk, try the major pentatonic.
