  • Do you listen to music while playing?

    After reading that some people listen to music while playing games (CS:S included), this got me thinking and so I have to ask, who listens to music while playing?

    On servers like TG's, I think it would be detrimental to gameplay because it would interfere with what your team mates are saying, along with your ability to hear footsteps and other noises that would indicate a nearby enemy. It could even garble your voice over the com if you're listening to it on speakers, and give your team mates problems when trying to understand you.

    So, do share your opinion on this.

    Cheers.

    I tried it for a while, but as you said.....i was missing creaking floorboards and knocked over bottles! Nothing better than a 'headphone Kill'

            I forgot to mention that I do, in fact, listen to music while playing. Although eventually I just sortof tune it out and it becomes background noise that I hear through.

            Anyhow -- time to load up the Rocky Horror Picture Show soundtrack and play.

              I dont listen to music while I play on TG but i do when I play on frag monkey servers because you dont really need sound. Im interested though what kind of music does everyone listen to? Personally I like stuff to get you pumped up

              Example:
              Metallica - Hit the Lights, Seek and Destroy, Master of Puppets, Battery
              Dimmu Borgir - Progenes of the Great Apocolypse, Eradication Instincts Defined
              Children of Bodom - Needled 24/7, Children of Decadence
              Slayer - Raining Blood

                I like stuff that discourages my heart from exploding.

                Rocky Horror Picture Show soundtrack, Enigma, Gregorian monks chanting, etc.

                But, if I do feel like popping a vein, I'll put on the Painkiller soundtrack. That does the trick usually.

                  I dont listen to music. The clashing voices are all I need :)

                  It seems like half the server is southern US and a quarter is European :P

                    I forgot that I can turn it down on winamp.

                    I listen full blast all the time when playing on nontactical servers, but I'll try listening to Relationship Of Command while playing, softly, now.

                        ya, when im on a server with under 10-15 people music hurts cause you can't hear anything, but if its more you won't be able to hear anything anyway somusic goes on as loud as i can get it. and it has to be weird music without a set beat or i only shoot on the beat after a little while, really werid.
                        frowning takes 47 muscles, and smiling only take 17, but sitting there with a zombie like stare on your face takes 0, we have a winner.

                            I usually dont listen to music while playing.Unless im sucking or dont feel like talking to anyone.

                            Listen to:
                            System of a Down-For drowning people out that annoy me.
                            The Beatles-If im in a laid back mood
                            Led Zeppelin-If I feel like kicking some ace

                              its the same way for me, I think SOAD and The Prodigy are great. Some hardcore techno like Nine Inch Nailes is awesome too.
