What Albums reminds you of your favorite games?

I don't know about you but when I played my favorite games, I would listen to certain albums...

For me... the ones that stand out are. Scott Weilands album, when I played Resident Evil 2. It really fit well and creaped me out :)

Also Portishead second album was perfect for Tomb Raider II dark levels.

These 2 albums just fit perfectly for 2 of my all time favorite games.

What about you?

Portishead are great and I like their early stuff.

I'd often listen to some of the darker compositions from The Ninth Gate movie soundtrack when playing Dark Souls.

Pierce the Veil's album "Collide With the Sky" was perfect for Borderlands 2.

Not so much an album, but every time I hear Pink Floyd's 'Echoes' I think of Bioshock.

Megadeth, the Youthanasia album always reminds me of Doom 2 now because I was listening to it while playing that game.

maybe I don't understand the topic but.....I don't listen to outside music when I play games -- I listen to the soundtrack, imo it's the only thing made perfectly for the specific game..

Wrong.

99.999% of the time the internal soundtrack sucks ass, which is why the whole custom soundtracks feature was invented in the first place.

Metallica's Black album and Skyrim has that same feel for me.

Lol dat Scott Weiland album. I used to love how odd it was.

On topic: Aphex Twins Ambient Sounds Vol II always reminds me of playing DayZ. I can't wait for the standalone.
