    I think one of the reasons black people are more often single because in the eyes of society, they are often portrayed as undesirable. Another might be because they have higher rates of being in impoverished areas, where stable relationships may not be as common.

    None of these stats really surprise me at all

    I appreciate the thought you put into this! I agree with your comment about big budget games, I think those often have very mediocre, uninspired music. I actually had no idea that Yoko Shimomura composed the Street Fighter 2 soundtrack, her work for the Kingdom Hearts games is some of my favorite music ever. As a musician, I find myself more influenced by game composers than any other artists, and as a listener I've discovered so many genres that I would never have heard of if it wasn't for games.

    I feel the exact same way about the entire Persona 5 soundtrack, but especially Last Surprise. I honestly think overdone memes are the main reason why I hardly ever listen to that song anymore, you just hear it so much that its just annoying now, which is a shame cause it's a great song. But I think the P5 soundtrack suffers from too much repetition, which is probably why it's my least favorite Persona soundtrack.

    I also put on my own music when grinding. No matter how good a soundtrack is, hearing the same battle theme over and over for hours gets tiring.

    Skyrim is one of my all time favorite games and the soundtrack definitely contributed to that. The immersion in that game is unreal.

    This is such a beautiful post! I appreciate you taking the time to write all this and go into detail about the history of your favorite tracks. I’m fairly young (early 20s) so I wasn’t really aware of when CD ripping first started. It’s a shame that so many people don’t really seem to care about soundtracks, so it’s important that we show our appreciation of these amazing works of art.

    Very insightful post, thank you!

    I enjoy hearing the Doom music in game but never really listened to it outside of it, not sure why cause I really like it. Undertale has some good tracks as well.

    I’m not the biggest fan of the newer Persona games (I used to be but that’s a whole other story) but I LOVE the soundtracks. Especially Heartbeat, Heartbreak, that’s one of my favorite game songs. Nier Automata is also one of my favorite games ever and I love the soundtrack, I sample bits from that game in my own music occasionally. I hear Celeste has a great soundtrack as well but I haven’t listened to it yet.

    I think modern game soundtracks can be hit or miss, they’re usually really good or totally forgettable in my experience. I guess you can say the same thing for older ones though, but most of the stuff I listen to starts from the PS1 era and anything after that, so I don’t really listen to older stuff like SNES, N64, etc.

    I agree that not all of them sound good on there own. A perfect example of that is Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey. The soundtrack is fantastic while your playing it, it really emphasizes the hopelessness of the situation your in. But by itself it kinda just sounds like generic orchestral music in my opinion. I still consider it to be a good soundtrack though since it does its job well at accompanying the game, it’s just not something I enjoy listening to.

    I was curious how many people on here enjoy listening to game soundtracks outside of the game. I personally love when a game has a great soundtrack as it really adds to the atmosphere and overall immersion in the game. I also like collecting physical copies of them as well.

    If you do, which ones are your favorite? Personally I love Shin Megami Tensei, Final Fantasy, and Blazblue soundtracks the most.

    I use the Keychron K1 mechanical keyboard. I used to not get the whole mechanical keyboard trend amongst gamers until i tried one out for myself, now i'll literally only buy mechanical keyboards lol. What I love so much about the K1 is that it has flat, laptop-style keys, but they're mechanical rather than membrane. This is important for me cause before i built my gaming PC a couple of months ago, I never owned a desktop, so I really needed that laptop feel and this totally delivers.

    I did boxing a bit as a kid, and took up Taekwondo for a couple of months at my university. Boxing is cool but I really wasn't a fan of Taekwondo, I prefer to use my hands when fighting.

    Just checked out your Soundcloud, I really like your soundscapes. I considered using Renoise but I honestly think that Ableton has all my musical needs.

    I agree, one of the reasons why I like Tildes so much compared to places like Reddit or Discord is because there is always genuine discussion, so maybe it would work on here.

    As someone who recently switched to Ableton Live 10, I'm really loving it so far, wish I had used it sooner. Is there a reason why you prefer 9 over 10, or have you just not used 10 yet?

    I think the idea of putting jazz guitar with experimental soundscapes sounds super interesting, maybe take back your keyboard from your friend since he isn't using it lol. I've actually used a jazz sample in one of my ambient songs, it came out alright I guess. Sometimes I think about getting back into playing actual instruments like I used to when I was a kid. I played guitar and a little bit of piano but I just couldn't get that into it, especially since making electronic music is so much more fun and interesting. I do think it could potentially add more to my music though, so I'm still considering it.
