    There would be a flood of topics in the community thread if I asked what everyone's favourite genre/musician is, so that's why I'm only asking it here. What are fellow MR gamers fave music? Name your current fave game and console too. might be interesting?

    Here goes...


    New Order, Mercury Rev, Enya, Inspiral Carpets, Chris Huelsbeck (who is a game musician, incidentally), The Beatles, The Turtles.

    Currently loving Metroid Hunters on the DS.

    Game music? What's that? lol

    When I play WoW, I usually set the music to 'off', and then have iTunes going with Bad Religion, Thrice, No Use For a Name, etc.

    The same kind of soundtrack I prefer for, well, most anything :)

    I rather enjoyed the Medal of Honor soundtracks.
    I'll also second the Super Smash Brothers music, I even picked up the CD of the music done by the New Japan Philharmonic Orchestra

    "Fighting of the Spirits" as used in Tales of Phantasia or Tales of Symphonia is the best video game track ever made. Period.
