I listen to techno, mostly from the Einhander OST, but also some Mega Man and R-Type.

So what music do you guys listen to?

You play and make games at the same time?!

I usually listen to electro while im working. Something fast and upbeat.

Work on AND play games at the same time? That's hardcore!

Me, i usually listen to metal, dance, some pop or any other genre i feel like listening to at the time (though more often than not metal and dance!) if i am listening to anything, otherwise i've mostly got no music on as i'm listening to the game itself as i test/play it

Random things in my iTunes library. It's usually just instrumental/orchestral music (Usually soundtracks. There are some darn good ones.) with the occasional rock song. Words distract me if they're in a modern song.

Often because I'm cringing at its terribleness.

I will also listen to Johan Hargne music if I'm working on Splotches. That oompah tuba tutorial music still hasn't gotten old.

I don't listen to anything except the game itself through headphones (when playing back a single frame to test or something). I shut the TV off too. It's gotta' be complete silence for me.

For me it completely depends on what I'm working on.
I get bored and work on a lot of overhead shooters, so I usually play some sort of metal or rock (BTW, just got the new Slash Album, great CD!),
but with my lighter toned games I usually play some slow rock songs. Like the slower NickelBack songs I end up playing a lot. I'm not a big fan of rap, but sometimes I play Colt Ford because he's got a few songs that match the tone of my games.

Depends on what game Im making. If it's upbeat and happy, happy music, and vice versa for more serious games.

At the moment

Usually very upbeat music to keep me awake.



With games specifically, Dragonforce is a nice choice because of the video-gamish tune.

Mostly music from movies or games soundtracks. Other than that it's alot of Progressive, Symphonic & Powermetal that does the trick for me.
