    Listening to music while playing video games?

    Like This Thread!
    Does anyone here have music playing in the background when you play video games? I used to do that quite a bit in the NES era, as well as when i played computer games (especially during first person shooter games like doom and duke nukem). Dont do it anymore, though if more recent games had a "turn music off" function i might play music in the background again.

    I often turn on Korobiniki or any other more notable Tetris tracks when playing versions that either lack that music or music in general.

    I haven't done it but maybe just a few times. For whatever reason, if I'm playing a game with the volume turned down and music playing from a CD, I find it distracting, especially if it's something I like to sing along to. So I normally just play games while leaving the game volume up.

    A little Del tha Funkee Homo Sapien in the background increases my skills exponentiously. (-: Small side note, I never realized how much EVERY OTHER CONSOLE EVER sucks for not making custom soundtracks a standard feature until I got a 360. (-:

    I listen to music pretty whenever I play video games unless the game itself has a worthwhile soundtrack which I'm not bored with. It's downright essential with fighting games and racing games. When my friend and I play Smash Bros. we turn the SFX completely up and put on his iPod stereo thing to listen to fast paced music to fight to.

    With the kinds of games I generally play, the music is integral to the game, Frequency, Amplitude, Rez, Gitaroo Man, and many DDR games. You kind of need the music there. I always stick with the music that comes with the game.
    I should put something here. I don't know what though.

    I know recently i stuck my flash into my XBox with Initial D music on there, and played that playing Forza 2. It put me in a "initial d" mode with eurobeat blaring though the speakers with engine rev's and squeeling tires.

    Then i get the real ID experiance when i go to the arcades whenever my friend and i have time...

    I've done it a couple of times, but generally I find it too much work to cherry pick which music goes with the game I'm playing.

    Most of the time,I do have my stereo on while playing video games,with the sound muted on the TV....I think I got into that habit from my older brothers,who used to do the same....The only games I regularly keep the sound on for are the Mario series and the Legend of Zelda series since I like the music,and the English language Kingdom Hearts games,since I love both the music and the voices {I have a tendancy to sing along to "This is Halloween" when Sora and Co. are in Halloween Town....I'm a big Nightmare Before Christmas fan ...}
