    Perhaps others? Anyone care to share your views on how videogame music influences your play? Does thumping music charge you up? Does draggy music slow you down?

    Hey man, were you at Bugis yesterday (Saturday)? Not sure whether you're someone I know by face but not by name...?

    Not sure what genre I'd put 'em into, but I enjoyed the old Psygnosis tunes more than anything. Blood Money, Shadow of the Beast, Lemmings, etc. I think the Amiga was the the best platform for memorable game music overall. I usually turn the music off in fighting games. It seems to help me concentrate better. Same with FPS's. Sometimes I do put in some AC\DC during Quake, and once I tried Enya during a massive deathmatch; that was WIERD.
    Notable music:
    Descent II soundtrack (hard rock) <-- Try this with Quake, beats the original soundtrack
    Quake soundtrack (hard rock)
    Red Alert 1 and 2 soundtracks, esp. Hell March (rock)
    Doom E1M2 (midi)
    Old Psygnosis games (mostly David Whittaker format I believe)
    Lotus 1 or 2 Amiga (can't remember which game had better music, or what format)

    -Almost forgot Turrican 1 & 2!

    Anything good (whatever style) is fine by me. Oftentimes I'll pick a stage in a fighting game based on how much I like the music.
