While I dont particularly like hip hop all that much, I will say that it compliments certain things better than rock or other music would. I cant picture playing Zelda to hip hop, but GTA, it works. I still tend to keep it to rock stations though.
I dont play Final Fantasy. It's not that I wouldnt like it, more that I cant catch up to it at this point. It didnt pull me in when I was younger like it did alot of other kids. I had a couple games on the PS1. The first disc of Metal Gear Solid was one of them, and I liked that one the most, even if all I really got to was Vulcan Raven, and I didnt know how to aim the grenades in the right spot
Picked it up later on PSN, beat it in no time flat. I bought it out of nostalgia, and became addicted to the series. While I dont have it anymore, I still remember being floored at how impacting the music could be at times.
