Not for me... never play music while gaming...
To each his own, but for me I like "Thematic Music" while gaming. I can't listen to Pop/Hard Rock/etc. while gaming as it becomes hard on the ear/brain while gaming.
Thematic music (no singing) is the best. What I hear in some game stores is a mix of hard rock and acid music - no way for me.
Good stuff here...The Thin Red Line is a great movie depicting some of the horrors one is faced with during conflict, even on the enemy's side is reflected here.
Now, you are about to kick some arsse, Conan the Barbarian is a good choice while humming the Marine Corps The Halls of Montezuma.... Muhahahaha!
Gaming with a buddy is all about giving him the TASTE OF BILE so that he wakes up at night with a cold sweat knowing he was CRUSHED!
Then, he has the right of DeMand! for the next game and needless to say his Thematic Music....
