Is it solipsistic in here or is it just me?

I only listen to music if I'm playing a non-story game, like a sports game or something, and in that case, I'll listen to whatever. But if I'm playing a serious game, I've gotta listen to the game.

I usually listen to electronic with more of a static beat, just to bring up the more tedious undertone of WoW. Anything over five minutes in length, or an entire album. For those two things, I often listen to Autechre or Boards of Canada. I don't limit myself to those two, but it would take a lot longer to name everything.

I generally tend to see the game soundtrack as integral to the gaming experience/atmosphere as a whole. So with the exception of MMOs where I've already heard the same pseudo-romantic tune on loop 100+ times, I'll just be listening to whatever is already attached to the game. (Which isn't to say some game soundtracks aren't brilliant in their own right)




Banjo Kazooie by Grant Kirkhope

Awesome soundtrack.

Grant Kirkhope is actually incredible, not only as a composer, but as a human being.

I usually start playing the game with in game music and if I think I know music that'd fit better, I remake the soundtrack. For example, I didn't like Hotline Miami's choice of music, so I put together basically a GTA radio station of music for it.

During multiplayer stuff (like Left 4 Dead or something) I just sort of listen to whatever. Think my first listen to Tycho's album this year was during L4D2 frankly.
