I personally listen to:
-The Killers when I'm playing campaigns where I control 1-4 units
-Children of Bodom when I'm playing the side that is NOT the bad guys but that has spiders, goblins, undead, and dragons
-Coldplay when I'm playing Age of Empires, Empire Earth, and other realtime, ethically neutral games

Any thoughts?

    While it doesn't happen often, I tend to listen to Iron Maiden during any strategy gaming where I am listening to music.

    Hehehe...

    While playing Starcraft, I sometimes listen to Franz Ferdinand, Cake, Modest Mouse, Weezer or a combination thereof. Thrown in a little Jet, White Stripes and Raconteurs and you've got my FPS gaming mix. Call of Duty, etc.

    Total Annihilation's in-game music is too damn good, so I don't mess with that.

    But then there's Duke Nukem. Gotta have some Led Zep and Hendrix in there if I'm playin' the Duke. Or Doom, for that matter. Anyone here still play classic Doom?

    Aaaaand then there's my space games. With the exception of Starcraft, if I'm playing space games I generally listen to classical guitar stuff. Like Mason Williams. EVE Online sounds great to Classical Gas... unless I'm PvP'ing. Then it's more like my FPS mix.

    Gotta have hard rock if I'm doing any kind of art or 3D modeling, too. For some reason, Ween sounds great when you're doing art.

    If you're looking for something... well interesting look up Ed Alleneye-Johnson. He's a really great electric violinist who does some really cool stuff. Enjoy!

    Classic Doom/Doom 2 is one of the only FPS games I play. The other being Call of Duty: United Offensive.

    I usually only listen to music when playing games like Sonic Adventure, Mega Man, or the like. Then, I'm listening to rock. I had to get out the Hendrix cannon to beat Sonic Adventure for the first time. In FPS games I tend to need to listen to the in-game sounds too much, and for strategy games I have no music so I can tinker without distractions.

    That is the truth... I have in fact gone so far that I've ripped the music and used it when playing other games... I wonder where I placed it though.

    You're my hero. I like to listen to Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D minor, the third movement of Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata, Vivaldi's "Winter", Arabian Waltz (see, Yo Yo Ma), the Pirates of the Carribean soundtrack (2 and 3, not so much 1), Riverdance and Rusted Root.

    Classical and jazz is good, blues (of the right kind) can also be an asset.

    What I need though is a soundscape of electronica many hours long, something like the result of chaining Massive Attack to a studio for a week and making them create a very long album at gunpoint.

    You may wish to look up Miles Davis's Pangaea.

    Most gamers I've met like to listen to heavy metal or hard rock types of music. Erfworlders? We listen to the Blues, baby!

    I tend to listen to classical music (I reccomend Johann Pachelbel's Canon in D Major) or hard rock/heavy metal (Ozzy Osbourne, Apocalyptica, AC/DC, Def Leppard, Aerosmith, etc.). For some reason, I tend to think better when these kinds of songs are playing. Every once and a while, I take a break from these by listening to techno. But the only thing better than these for doing your best in any kind of game... is epic theme songs!!! :D (particularly the Raiders of the Lost Arc theme song)

    Here are some wonderful suggestions and we can enjoy the list of songs while playing strategy games. We can enjoy music and play the games with the rhythm...
