So, when playing some games, I don't really care what the characters are saying or about the music and sound effects, and instead I play my own music
I have found that playing my own music can make me like a game even more, for example, earlier on I was running around in BF Bad Company II unleashing carnage and having a really fun time while listening to:
Aha - Take On Me Cliff Richard - Wired For Sound Mark Ronson - Bang Bang Bang Goodnight Nurse - Milkshake
For some reason, these three songs made the whole game so much more fun, it was kind of... liberating... I guess
So, does anyone else prefer their own music when playing games? got any examples?
I do this once i finish a game and am going to re-play it. Good hack and slash games like god of war or devil may cry,i'll listen to any hardcore/thrash/metal music.Like Slayer,Five finger death punch,Tool.
For RPG's like dragon age/warcraft/mass effect,i'll listen to techno/trance/ like the crystal method,trance control. Sometimes just for fun i'll throw in some tori amos/sarah mclaughlin. For games like bullet storm and max payne,The slow hypnotic music flows with the slow motion bullet time.Acoustic music works too.Like chris cornell. Iam a HUGE music fan in case you haven't noticed.
