I listen to a little here and there, but I reckon it's probably less than 5% of what I listen to. My listening habits are also weird as hell. The only times I listen to music at all are if I'm driving or laying in bed at night (or playing a game, obviously). I can't have music going when I'm trying to be productive or I'll just end up chilling and listening and get nothing done.

No,because music in general is ass

I just don't understand people like this. I saw a tweet from someone once (real specific, I know) that said music is pointless because it's counterproductive and all I could think of was "I guess some people really do hate enjoying themselves".

All the time. Video game music is better than whatever trash other artists put out these days.

Not gonna lie, this is a really weird take in my opinion as well. I'm not gonna pretend like the mainstream rap, pop, and country is worth listening to, but modern music isn't the wasteland the boomers and zoomers say it is. Just like back in the good old days, you gotta go and seek out some lesser known artists in your genres of choice. It's easier than ever before, but I guess some people are just stuck in their ways...

Yesssss? I guess? But mostly just when the music of the game I’m listening to sucks.

My A/V receiver supports Zone 2 and 3 so when I’m playing something with an intolerable soundtrack I’ll zone 2 an Atelier soundtrack, or the soundtrack for Ys VIII which just puts them to a second set of speakers in the same room.

Other than that most of the music I would listen to on purpose outside of a gaming situation are a few of the vocal tracks from the Atelier series. Some of them are decent general listening material, but I don’t think there’s much for video game music that could rise above things in my library like CHVRCHES, Passcode, BAND-MAID, REOL. Or like Escape the Fate, or 30 Seconds to Mars. Or like Shawn Mendes. Even some older stuff like Collective Soul or Nirvana. Like I get some people really get into their video game OSTs, but there’s so much good music, I don’t really get choosing to listen to video game tunes.

There's nothing to get? Same way someone finds an artist and digs there toons is generally the same process someone ends to digging OSTs.
To use myself as an example i preety much listen exclusively to OSTs since i come across the music naturally through my gaming time and while i'm sure there's tracks out there that i'd enjoy i don't go looking for them or randomly stumble unto them so i just end up listening to my video game tunes all the time.

All the time, but in particular at home, with friends, or on road trips. Rarely do I listen to it during normal commutes or anything like that. I'm a composer, so I suppose I'm a bit picky, but my audio set up at home or the speakers in a car do a much better job representing video game audio than crappy earbuds while in loud buses lol.

Anyway, my favorite OSTs of all time are from FFXIII Trilogy. The first game is most consistently my favorite, but the second has my favorite song (Warrior Goddess), while the last one has some especially unique stuff. Crystal Chronicles' OST is also right up there with these, being pretty universally fantastic & iconic and sorely underappreciated. Fragile Dreams is a Wii exclusive JRPG that I also love the OST of.

Outside of those, I tend to listen to Animal Crossing OSTs (especially New Leaf and Wild World), Zelda OSTs (especially BotW), Mario/Mario Kart OSTs (especially GC era), pre-DS era Pokemon OSTs (especially the console games), and Paper Mario & TTYD OSTs. I'll also pick and choose songs from other Final Fantasy games and Megaten games sometimes. As you can probably tell, I grew up on Nintendo.

Edit: Outside of VGM, I'm normally listening to EDM, various forms of modern Japanese Rock/Indie (and no, not anime OPs), or City Pop.
Looking forward to: Buying more retro games, BotW2, FFVIIR, SMTV someday.
Fav series: Zelda, Mario Kart, WipEout, Custom Robo, SMT, Final Fantasy.
