edited August 2007 in Less Rokk More Talk
abit of a sad subject, but yet i found it interesting

are their any albums that you listen to whilst playing certain videogames like , (resident evil 2 and 3 - slipknot - iowa) and only listen to those albums with those games for a period of about 3 days

these are the games and albums i got suited to

all 5 pantera albums (cowboys era) ......streets of rage 1 - 3
slayer - reign in blood, diablous in musica ..... resident evil 4
slipknot - iowa .......resident evil 2 and 3
nirvana - nevermind ...........resident evil outbreak file 2
megadeth - peace sells ....but whos buying, rust in peace .........the simpsons: hit and run and resident evil 4
alice in chains - dirt ......sonic the hedgehog 1,2 and 3
creed - greatest hits ...........resident evil 4
afi - black sails in the sunset, the art of drowning, sing the sorrow ...........spider-man 2 and ultimate spider-man

    creed has a greatest hits album? creepy.

    Dunno how this fits in with the topic, but when I played the original civilization, I was listening to Master of Puppets non-stop, so now there's a constant mental connection between the two.

    well if thats wut he means by associating games with albums then i have this to say:

    every time i play knights of the old republic i always think of the deftones - white pony for some stupid reason

    gears of war - i usually play three albums when playing this game : words . . . by akercocke, choronzon by akercocke, and ruun by enslaved

    oblivion - kid a

    fight night round 3 - blood inside by ulver

    Oh yea plenty, I have tons of songs that when I listen to them it brings me right back the time I was first listening to it and which games I was playing. I really got into The Beatles while play WoW at one point when I made a horde character, so that image always comes into my head when I hear some of their songs.

    Also I listened to a lot of Smashing Pumpkins while playing Counter Strike...

    I like to listen to music while playing computer games for the most part, and so yea, I would get hooked on songs or artists and only listen to those, and play games to pass the time.

    I remember listening to Pink Floyd's Animals the whole time when I played Pool of Radiance (the original from 1987, not that crappy second part from a few years ago). Similarly, I will always associate Ugly Kid Joe's America's Least Wanted with the old Infocom text adventure like The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy or The Lurking Horror.

    Haha, isnt that the truth.

    I listen to Franok Sinatra when playing Forza Motorsport, and I like to listen to very calm songs during games like GEars of War because it sounds funny.

    I can only really think of 2 occurences where i was hooked on a song or album while playing a specific game, no particular reasons why.

    1. Nirvana - Nevermind - GTA 1
    2. Rob Zombie - just Dragula - TFC

    Only one I've really got is from Final Fantasy 8, as I can't play Estranged by Guns & Roses without thinking of it.

    First time I ever heard that song was while playing the game... and at the exact moment Axel sings "Why must everything drift away and die" Balamb Garden upped and sodded off down the ocean... talk about coincidence... more to the point, talk about emotional! I now have that scene in my head every time I hear that song.

    Other than that, I just tend to sort out a playlist on Winamp with my MP3's depending on what I'm playing, so it's never really a full album as such, just a stack of tunes, lol.

    Tho' saying that, when I play Warhammer or Magic The Gathering, anything from Hammerfall or Nightwish is perfect to set the mood. Blind Guardian can also be a good one for that too.

    A Twist In The Myth - Blind Guardian - Oblivion, due to putting it on repeat while completing the main quest.

    Whenever a song off of it comes up on shuffle, i subconsciously think '****, who's playing Oblivion?'

    Hah, yeah Blind Guardian and Oblivion. Does it get any better?

    And if you have never listened to death metal while playing Doom, I recommend you do so immediately.

    I have a few

    Everquest - I listened to a lot of Moby during those years as a teen - so now whenever I hear certain moby songs, I remember playing everquest

    Everquest 2 - I was listening to a lot of PIG and NIN during those times, so whenever I hear those two bands, makes me wanna re-instate my account.

    I know there are tons more, just cant think of them off of the top of my head.

    For some reason Kansas reminds me of Final Fantasy IX. None of the other Final Fantasies. Just IX.

    Iron Maiden - The Trooper is tied with oblivion for the rest of time due to large repeats of the song whilst playing..

    Same with The Joekr And The Thief by wolfmother.
