For those who are gamers here, which albums do you like to listen to while gaming?

I've found that Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven matches the mood of Half Life 2 and I always have it on while I play it.

What about you? Smile

I used to listen to Arcade Fire's The Suburbs on my stereo while playing The Last Of Us.

I've found Liquid Swords works great both for competitive FPSes like COD, any game I play on 3DS that isn't Mario (like Kid Icarus or Resident Evil) or for something more basic and cerebral like Sudoku or Picross that I play on my phone to kill time.

This may very well be the most versatile album ever for gaming. Or really, it isn't but it feels like it.

Depends what experience I'm looking for. If I'm looking for an alternative score I tend to look for jazz, classical, ambient, and drone. All of which do pretty well.

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)

This isn't a topic I should be allowed to have a say in. However I do know lots more albums like 'Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven' if the first person to post is happy to hear more Smile

I usually just listen to the video game's score. Pretty much what dragonballz up there said. The one time I can think of listening to something else is when I would play Flash games in which case I would listen to probably something I liked.
