Is there any style of music you like listening to while gaming?

When I play GTA Online I usually turn off the games music track completely and have Pandora running in the background with a pure instrumental hip-hop station. Stuff like RJD2, Wax Tailor, and Ratatat.

I prefer to listen to native sounds/music. Listening to the radio/whatever breaks my immersion, I'm pretty nerdy

I'm normally talking with babes when I'm playing a game.

If I have music running it would be anything either metal (especially power metal), 40's, 50's, 60's, 70's or 80's. I like some video game music, but it depends what it is.

Nothing. If I'm playing some repetitive like surf on CSGO or Minecraft; I like putting on some progressive trance ie. Dash Berlin/Armin Van Buuren.

Ronald Jenkees is pretty good while gaming for me, a few tracks bring me back to when I used to play WoW.

Some of Aphex Twin's mellower stuff is good as well, I had a playlist by him for Dead Rising. Honestly I'm not sure it would fit any other game though so maybe it's just good for game, not gaming.

I listen to hella grind, noise rock, black metal and raucous stuff. DV8 makes fun of me but he's canadian, cody makes fun of me but he's southern.

Favorite gaming music:
Grey Wolves
Sutcliffe Jugend
Eyehategod
Capitalist Casualties
Kataxu
Floor
Iron Lung
Gob
Hammerhead

But if i'm playing solo rpgs it's usually black metal of the epic and despondent variety, hip hop, ambient, electronic, doom and jazz.

Thelonious Monk
Boards of Canada
Ghostface Killah/Wu Tang/All those dudes
Labradford
Stars of the Lid
Miles Davis
Company Flow
GAS
Fleshpress
Deathspell Omega
Gorguts
El-P
Aphex Twin
Portishead
Massive Attack
Burial

Instrumental scores from other media are my preferred music. I'm currently in love with the Assassin's Creed 3 score.

There's nothing like powering through to the end of a game, then sitting back watching the credits roll and sipping on a Perrier.

Best Scandinavian metal band is without a doubt HIM ;)

Metal and video games? Teenage nerds with no gf confirmed!

On topic though, I find playing music and gaming distracting.
