Gamers: What Music Do You Play To?

I know we have a whole bunch of gamers on here, and not enough GOOD video game soundtracks. So what is it you listen to while executing your next raid, or mowing down innocent people in an airport, or rescuing the Princess AGAIN? Let us know! Here's mine.
This Binary Universe
2Explosions In The Sky
The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place

I play EVE Online, which (for the uninformed) is an MMORP space-exploration game. In the tranquility of space, I like to listen to stuff that's soft and wordless, but still epic. Hence #'s 1 and 2.

This one's good for pretty much any high-action cyber-punk game, or any fast-paced racing game (the F-Zero series comes to mind). Also good for fighting games.
Before The Storm

Trackmania, the San Francisco Rush series, fucking Sonic R...I have yet to play a racing game that this album didn't go to.
5The Greyboy Allstars
A Town Called Earth
6 Thelonious Monk
The Measure of Monk

I play SimCity 4 (or used to, anyways). A LOT. As awesome as the music for SC4 is, I'm always on the lookout for some outside works that fit in with the music already included. These two jazz albums work, as do half the songs ever included in "Hey, Arnold!"
7Devin Townsend Project

For any fighting game that doesn't take itself too seriously, like the Smash Bros. series, this is perfect. It's heavy, but it's really damn fun to listen to, so yeah.
8Simon and Garfunkel

Any first-person shooter. No, really. I had a friend play this while he was playing Wolfenstein on his PC (cheated so he couldn't die and had the best weapons), and it worked like "Mad World" for Gears of War. Imagine complete ownage of everyone to the sounds of "Hazy Shade of Winter" or "Mrs. Robinson"...yeah.
