What music do you listen to while playing Dwarf Fortress
« on: March 10, 2007, 04:47:00 pm »

Hey all

I was wondering what music -if any- people prefer listening to when playing DF.

Personally, I've got a playlist filled with songs ripped from RTS games (mostly the older C&C games), which I use almost exclusively for this game.  :D

Iron Maiden mostly. Maybe some Dio or Sabbath on the side.

I like the guitar strumming music, it's subtle and lengthy enough so it doesn't seem to be going in a certain pattern and always seems to be random. But I usually have my alarm clock radio tuned in to a radio station. Jack FM. Awesome radio station, let's hope it doesn't devolve into mediocrity or get taken over by yet another rap station.

I don't really listen to much music, I get too involved in the game to pay attention to anything else really. But if I did, it'd probably be like, fantasy music or something. I also like the music Toady made for it.

Toady's music is great, but too short to hear it constantly, it gets repetitive.

I don't have any standard music for playing DF, its mostly what I like listening to at the time. Currently I'm listening to Rammstein while playing :P

Also, I get so caught up in the game, that I often pause the music for one reason or another (like a phone call), but am too much into the game to remember to unpause it  :)

Everything I say should be taken with atleast 1 tsp. of salt, and another liter of Dwarven Wine is recommended.

Mostly power metal or symphonic metal... Or Epic metal. Or.... Anything with metal =D

But sometimes also Toady's music, it gives a special effect on the game ^^

Radio Srbija! http://66.152.165.154:8000/

Sometimes Hammond-jazz, sometimes metal (preferably after I've stumbled upon metal ore  :D)

I like the stock classical guitar music.  When it gets tedious, or a watch the dwarves cycle through sleep one too many times, I know I've been playing DF for too long.
