    Dirty Three for ambient RPG types, and in contrast, I like to play tetris whilst listening to music.

    (did I just say "whilst"?)

    I have a "gaming" playlist, it's mostly random dance music, 2 prodigy albums, and some dragonforce.

    Totaly depends on the game. Mostly just what I'm listening to though.

    If I want to properly play a game and really get sucked into it, I'll play whatever compliments the games mood. So for instance Selected Ambient Works II by Aphex Twin for Doom 3, or if I've become bored with the Deus Ex music I'll put on Moby's Play.

    i usually just throw all my cheezy pop music on shuffle.

    however, this morning i was listening to the soundtrack for 300 while playing GTA san andreas. that was pretty intense

    Depends on the game, shooters and RPGs with good music, nothing. Racing games tend to be DragonForce and other faster metal. Dynasty Warriors like games where you have a sword and take on an army would be any type of metal. Sports games I usually just listen to anything during, and turn off their standard soundtrack.

    depends on the game, but I have been very impressed with www.jamendo.com

    for racing games/fps's I generally just hit the rock button

    anything else gets techno usually.

    Depends on the game for me - usually just the normal soundtrack. FPS - usually nothing, as it makes it impossible to pay attention to footsteps and whatnot, likewise for anything that plays like Splinter Cell. Anything else, it's generally my normal (fairly short) playlist if it's not the in-game stuff, which consists of a lot of Evanescence, Breaking Benjamin, Three Days Grace, RHCP, a bit of Green Day and several tracks from various Final Fantasy games, plus a bit from quite a few others (access to my playlist is about 200 miles away, and there's no sense wasting the space copying in all the artists anyways). Generally rock or metal. If it's a slower game, I'll often catch up on some podcasts :)

    Soft calming music that contrasts with the full throttle style of game play something like time of your life by green day. I like the soviet national anthem on ut2004 (ons spithingrad), or some of my mums stuff.

    Usually the in game soundtrack will do for me the first time I play the game to the finish. After that and I know where everything comes from; I play either;

    Blistering metal (a la DevilDriver, Chimaira, Arch Enemy, Lamb of God, yada yada) for games such as FEAR, RTCW, FarCry and GRAW.

    For my other games like Deus Ex 2 and The Warhammer games, that gets my new age music, like Enigma, Jean-Michel Jarre, Mike Oldfield, Delerium and Paul Oakenfold.


    For Doom 3 I always play Tool, it just fits. Really, really fits. Especially the Lateralus Album.
