Music you like to listen to while playing MMO's

My personal fav is Amon Amarth. Singing about the life and death of vikings while playing realy gives me a boost  :p

the steel shines red with enemy blood. It sings of victory, granted by the gods. And as they return bleeding but proud, the horizon burns and the song is ringing LOUD!

    Always the games own music tbh. I am into metal music, I just find it to be out of place with the games I play.

    It's nice to hear from another metalhead  :p

    For me the lyrics of AA realy fit with MMO's since they're mostly about battle  :p

    But ofc to each his/her own :p

    Metal music does nothing for me except make me reach for the Off switch as fast as possible.  ;)

    I would listen to talk radio when I was doing mind numbing crafting in DAOC.

    None - I play either with sound off or in-game music.

    Exactly my reaction to most soundtracks.

    Titanic, Dirty Dancing, Purple Rain, The Bodyguard, Blue Hawaii, West Side Story, South Pacific...? Feeling your stomach churn, yet? (:shoot me, just shoot me right now, please:)

    Eventually all that Tangerine Dream work. Yawn--but at least vanilla inoffensive, in the same way Muzak in elevators is. It's biggest saving grace lies in how infrequently you even notice it's there.

    In-game music? Just set the volume to "0". Thank you, thank you for MP4.

    Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.

    I usually play with no sound, got my pc outputting sound to my headphones, just dont were um much. When i do listen to music i load up my ps3 and stream some electronica like cosmic gate, markus shultz, tiesto, armin van burrin, and so on.

     

    Love electronica, tiesto was the only concert i ever been to, and it was a blast.

    In game music for me. But other than that I listen to and l write Deathmetal/Grindcore.

    I usually do not listen to music. But when I do, its during a pvp session. It varies! Here is a example list!

    Carmina Burana-Karl Orff , Rammstien-Varied , Flight of Icarus-Iron Maidden , Immigrant Song-Led Zeppelin . Headhunter-Front 242 ,  Got Funk-Parliament , Planet Rock-Africa Bambataa , Jam on it-Newcleus

    Some of the wide variety of choices!

    people have different taste and that is not a bad thing. I feel the same way with rap and hip hop.

    I listen to metal and electronic when gaming. Currently i have been playing WoW and Rift with a good background music from Funker Vogt, God Module, and Unter Null :)

    With that said, i also love the brackground sounds from some mmos ( WoW, GW2, Age of Wushu) and sometimes i just roll with that instead.

     

    EDIT: oh and every once in a while i dig a specific song from Callenish Circle when gaming. Suffer my disbelief (the song you hear at the end of Angry Joe show videos) haha so good.

    In game music for me, too. This can be both good and bad.

    It is good that a player starts to connect the music to where they are in a game.
    It is bad because sometimes games recycle music in their endeavors or sequels.

    I noticed this "bad part" in SW:TOR when I was traveling... somewhere, and my mind flashed back to playing in SW:KotOR, on the plains of Dantooine, because the music was the exact same thing.

    I've tried listening to my own music selections while playing, but I missed having some of the musical "cues" that happen every now and again.

    Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.

    I don't like those either.

    There are many times when I play with absolutely no sound.  Otherwise, my wife sits next to me on her computer and plays a radio talk show that is pretty amusing.

    Boards of Canada, Autechre, Coil, Steve Roach, Byron Metcalf, In-game music if I enjoy it.
