Haha, we're slightly different there then. For FPS games, especially multiplayer, I need my own background music..
I seem to of developed a slightly bizarre pattern whereby I get spurred on by certain songs, hitting the right mood song at times and I somehow play better, pay more attention to everything.
Yes, I tend to sing along at times but most of the time I actually filter it out until a certain song hits the perfect note and mood, I need that background noise to keep me sharp.
RPG games, unless it's a very good soundtrack, I'll just play my own music over it and continue onwards without giving second thought.
Oh, and this background music HAS to be over speakers.. I might use a headset now and again for in-game sounds. But the background noise has to be background and not focused.
