Oh yes, video games were always a huge influence. I completely blame video games for my love of electronic music. Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Mega Man, Castlevania, Marble Madness (lol), Ninja Gaiden & all that old NES stuff was great, I pretty much agree w/ everything listed already.
Also agree w/ TRIGR, Mech Warrior 2 had an awesome score! http://www.gamemusicjukebox.com/?id=5 It sounds equally militaristic and emotional, quite possibly my fav of any game ever.

Silent Hill 2 and 3 are probably the only two games that have had an influence on my music.

Nice! Primo Metroid track to pick. Probably one of my favs.

A friend turned me on to this Tetris Electro mix. Actually a really good track.

Simply had to include this track. If you've never played the game you should at very least check out this track. I used to love playing level 2 just for this music!

Yes.

In fact, the reason I started playing piano was because I was emulating the music I heard in video games. The first thing I really tried to play were the songs from Final Fantasy 1 and 2 , and Dragon Warrior when I was around . . . I dunno 7 or 8? If it wasn't for those games, I'd never have sat down at an instrument, although that could be wrong because when I turned 11 I became obsessed w/ Nirvana and thats when I bought a guitar. It was a total hunk of crap. I dumped the piano after that. I wish I had stuck with piano though, as its very universal in its applications these days, although having background in guitar is nice.

I currently have about 500 video game songs on my iPhone with its limited space so I'd say I'm a pretty big fan of different games.
