How Can You Play Video Games and Dance to Electronic Music?
A blog article about playing video games and specifically how you can play to house, techno and other electronic music.
Playing video games can seem like a waste of time, but it doesn’t have to be. I’ve been playing video games for over 20 years, and in this article I’ll share some tips on how you can turn your passion for gaming into something a little more productive.
The fact that it’s not all a waste of time is obvious if you look around at the number of gamers who are also professional dancers. They’ve taken their love of video games and turned it into a viable career path – or at least made enough money from it to pay for their dancing lessons. It’s not easy, but it is possible.
There are many different types of dance styles that you can play to, from hip-hop (which is really just breakdancing) through to house, techno and other electronic genres. The key point here though is that there are no rules as far as what type of music should go with each style – so if you want to play house then by all means do so!
This is a post about playing video games and specifically how you can play to house, techno and other electronic music. It’s something I can recommend for anyone who likes to play video games, dance to electronic music or both. There’s a lot of good stuff out there but it’s always worth the time and trouble to find it.
So you have a pair of headphones and an Xbox controller, but how do you play video games and dance to electronic music?
Playing video games can be a lot more fun if you add some dancing to it. Imagine that you are playing the new Halo game (Halo 5: Guardians), and this time you not only play the game but also dance to the music. Sounds like a good idea, right? It is!
Here’s how you can do it.
First, get some good music going; I usually pick house or techno music for my gaming sessions. You don’t need much space for this – just enough for your body movements without bumping into furniture or other dangerous objects like knives in your kitchen… 😉
Next, start playing your favorite game AND dancing at the same time. You will notice that this makes the gaming experience so much more fun than before! You don’t need to leave your couch or chair – just keep on playing while moving your upper body and legs to the beat of the music.
How can you play video games and dance to electronic music?
The quick answer is that it’s pretty easy. But the longer answer is a little more complicated. This article will give you some tips on how to play video games and dance to electronic music.
If you are new to playing video games and want to learn about video games, I suggest reading this article by my friend, Joe. He is a professional in the industry and has written many articles on the subject. It covers a lot of the basics, but the main thing you should know is that it’s not as hard as it sounds. You don’t have to be good at anything. The point is just to have fun and enjoy yourself.
The first thing you need to do is find a game that you like. There are many different types of games out there, so don’t feel like you have to stick with one genre or another. Just pick one that sounds interesting to you. If it doesn’t sound interesting, then don’t bother with it! The last thing we want is for people to spend their time playing a game they aren’t even enjoying. Once you find a game that interests you, start playing!
If you’ve been playing for awhile, then I recommend trying out some of
Electronic music is so cold and lifeless and lacks the warmth of human creativity that playing video games to it is brutally dull.
Electronic music has never really been my thing. I’m not saying it’s bad, in fact, I think it can be great, but I just don’t get it.
I find that there are two genres of electronic music out there; the kind people dance to and the kind people play video games to.
I love both video games and dancing but what I don’t love is when these two worlds collide. If you want me to dance then play any other kind of music because it’s a waste of time playing electronic beats at a club.
If you want me to play video games then play electronic beats because anything else is just annoying and distracting: if you can hear the vocals in the background then either turn them down or off completely because they make me want to stop playing.
The connection between playing video games and electronic music goes back to the very beginning of gaming. The first ever arcade game, Computer Space by Nolan Bushnell, was filled with a variety of beeps and buzzes. These sounds were produced with an integrated circuit chipset called the TIA. This was the first time that sounds could be produced outside of a television or radio speaker. Eventually, as technology evolved, more sophisticated chipsets allowed for more complex sounds to be produced in games.
The first arcade game with music was Space Invaders in 1978. Its soundtrack consisted mostly of simple melodies played in a square wave timbre via an AY-3-8910 sound chip. In the same year, Taito released another popular arcade game, Speed Race which had a more advanced three channel audio setup which allowed for music and sound effects to be played at the same time.
As games became more mainstream and gained popularity among young people, these two elements began to merge even further. Music artists such as Thomas Dolby found success in writing songs about video games such as he did with his famous hit “She Blinded Me With Science.”
Soon there would be a deluge of bands that would release music inspired by video games including Yellow Magic Orchestra’s “Computer Games” and Michael
Video games can be a very good way to improve your hand-eye coordination and overall reflexes. There are many games that offer this possibility but you have to choose the right one in order to benefit from such possibility. The good news is that there is a wide variety of games that you can choose from and most of them are quite fun to play.
One of the most popular genres of video games is the shooter genre. These games are great for improving your reflexes because it forces you to react in a very fast manner. A great example would be Counter Strike. This game has been around since 2003 and it still has millions of players worldwide.
Another genre of video games that can help improve your reflexes is fighting games. If you like martial arts or boxing then you should try playing Street Fighter 2 or Tekken 3 because both these games require fast reaction times and accuracy in order to succeed and win.
As I mentioned before, electronic music can really improve your concentration level as well and this is due to the fact that most of these songs have a very fast tempo which makes it harder for your brain to process everything that is happening around you at once.
