Genres of music for game audio composers
 
Hi there. I produce electronic music, mainly trance but also like house and techno. I am thinking about a career making music for games but would like to know what genres of music i need to be able to make in order to do music for games? I see there is a lot of orchestral style music in games these days so i guess it's essential to be able to make orchestral music but are there any other genres that i need to be proficient in?

Also can you recommend some good resources for learning how to produce/compose music for games.

thanks
