I'm someone whose music taste and what I listen to has been shaped in a big way by video games and, to to some extent, movies. The most prominent example of this for me has to be the Tony Hawk Pro Skater and Underground game series, that introduced me to who are now some of my favourite bands (Bad Religion, NOFX, Authority Zero, Less Than Jake, Dropkick Murphys and The Doors to name a few). In fact, the Tony Hawk games got me into what is now my favourite genre of music, punk rock.

Has anyone else's music taste been shaped in this way? If so, what game or movie soundtracks would you say are your favourites, and/or what ones were responsible for shaping your music taste?

Soundtracks from the Metal Gear Solid series are great, as well as the ones from The Elder Scrolls.

For OSTs, I find myself coming back to the works of Hans Zimmer, Steve Jablonsky, Klaus Badelt, Brian Tyler, Harry Gregson-Willams, James Newton Howard, and Ramin Djawadi.

Specifically, the Inception, Transformers, Pirates of the Caribbean, Modern Warfare (1,2,3), and basically all Hans Zimmer.

Honorable mention goes to Daft Punk for the TRON soundtrack.

Omd, Tony Hawk pro skater 3 soundtrack was EPIC. i don't usually listen to that sorta music, but that was just EPIC. The punk/rock genre i don't mind so much after that.
I like the music played in the menu of games such as Fable and Destiny- that awe inspiring music.
Although i don't play Fifa 15-the soundtrack is really good.
Um, i love the music from the Twilight movies. It got me listening to pianists (e.g. Yiruma, although his music isn't in it) since i really liked Bella's lullaby from there.

Definately the hunger games, inception, avatar, diversion & Harry Potter soundtracks are my favourites! Or just generally any action/thriller soundtracks are always the best in my opinion.

I've liked a lot of the relatively unknown indie rock music that FIFA have included in their soundtracks (The Fratellis (I include this band in this list at my own risk as they might be more known than I thought), My Federation, Art Brut, The Prototypes, We Are Scientists, etc.)
