Which would be the best game to play while listening to The Cure?

edited May 2005 in Chit chat
I'm just interested in what you all think because I can't think of any :(

I bought the Deluxe Edition of Faith last week and Pornography today. Seventeen Seconds next Wednesday then :)

Necros.

    But seriously, is there any games that would go well with albums I mentioned?

    buggered if I know. I like Metal and Punk.

    Mmm.... I've been listening to Japanese Whispers all week in the car... :)


    How about...


    A FOREST : 3D Deathchase
    CATERPILLAR : Centipede
    KILLING AN ARAB: Manic Muslim (CSSCGC)
    SHAKE DOG SHAKE: Bugaboo the flea
    HUNDRED YEARS: C64 Arcadia (takes 100 years to load)
    JUMPING SOMEONE-ELSE'S TRAIN: Stop the Express
    THE UPSTAIRS ROOM: Jet Set Willy (The Attic)

    That's really impressive chaosmongers :)

    For some reason, it never occurred to me to link up games with individual songs.

    Not a speccy game but Pictures of You would go well with Elegia Eternum (that's a really amazing mod for Neverwinter Nights by the way).

    Also :-

    Just One Kiss - Mikie
    The Empty World - any war game I suppose

    Necros.

    And if they ever did a sequel to that game, you could play it along to 'Another Journey By Train'. :)

    It depends on which Cure album.

    Disengeration - "Trashman"
    Wish - "Thanatos"
    Boys Don't Cry - "Gridrunner"
    The Cure (Self Titled) - "Fire And Forget"

    I hope you're not suggesting that Disintegration is crap. That's their absolute best album.

    I won't stand for that. :)

    I'm not.....remember that one South Park episode.....

    Tssk. That's 'Faith'. ;)
  • edited May 2005
    Faith is amazing too. If I had a top five list it would look like this.

    1. Disintegration (beats faith by a very small fraction of a percent)
    2. Faith
    3. Pornography
    4. Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me
    5. The Head On The Door

    Least favourites are Three Imaginary Boys and The Top. They're great albums, just not as good as the others.

    Many years from now, I used to play Wheelie listening to Seventeen Seconds. Works for me in that time.

  • edited May 2005
    With a song like 'The Drowning Man', you can't really go wrong with an album. In my opinion one of the best songs ever! But yeah, Disintegration is one hell of an album. :)
  • edited May 2005
    The Top?? Worst albums??

    One of the best in my opinion!

    Japanese Whispers/Head on the Door are my personal faves.



    Anyone here like 'The Mission'? For me, the albums 'First Chapter' and 'Children' are absolutely awesome, especially the latter one.

  • edited May 2005
    Yeah, Mission are great. :) And so were the early Sisters of Mercy, in which Wayne clearly was a major influence!
  • edited May 2005
    Definately... First and Last and Always is great.

    Wayne Hussey certainly has mastered the sound of mixing 12 string acoustic guitar, with distorted electric 6 string - a really great and original sound.


    Though I was slightly disturbed to read that Wayne Hussey used to be in the semi-transvestite stock-aitken-waterman Pete-burns-fanny-lipped-faced band 'Dead or Alive'


  • edited May 2005
    Sisters of Mercy were excellent. I remember This Corrosion, Lucrecia My Reflection and of course Temple Of Love being really amazing.

    I have a compilation, A Slight Case Of Overbombing, on tape here somewhere. I must dig it out and listen to it.

    Mission were also excellent. I listened to an album a few times, but I can't remember the name of it. There was a song on it called The Garden of Hereafter (or something). It had loads of violins in it. What album was that?

    Necros.
  • edited May 2005
    He was!? Damn, I had no idea.. Ah well, we all have our skeletons in the closet, eh? ;)

    One album that is not appreciated enough imho is "Masque". Did you like that one? I think it's great! None of my friends do though..
  • edited May 2005
    Garden of Delight?
  • edited May 2005
    I just checked on amazon, and the Mission album was called God's Own Medicine. You're right about the name Osgorth. I must see if I can get a copy of that somewhere.

    Does anyone here like Fields of the Nephilim. They were the heaviest (and most evil) goth rockers of the time. Carl McCoy was one scary m***erf**ker! Elizium was an amazing album, definitely their best.

    Necros.

    Yep, that's the one. :)

    FotN eh? Man, you have good taste in music, hehe. They totally rule. Elizium is the best studio album, yes, but _nothing_ beats Earth Inferno! (a live album)

    If you haven't got that, you need to buy it like NOW!
  • edited May 2005
    Slight case of Overbombing .... Check out the early Wayne Hussey/Craig Adams tracks NO TIME TO CRY, BODY AND SOUL, and WALK AWAY.


    The Mission - Children ....

    This is quite possibly (along with the Damned's Strawberries album) one of my favourite albums of all time.

    It's produced by Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones (he also plays on it too), and has LOADS of really well written and played songs.

    Stuff like A WING AND A PRAYER, HEAT, CHILD'S PLAY, KINGDOM COME - well worth downloading and listening too if you haven't already.


    I've not heard much Nephilim - It's a band I'll have to give a good go!

  • edited May 2005
    Oh man, you SO need to listen to Fields.. They are absolutely stunning. Get "Earth Inferno" and "Elizium" and just float away.. :)
