Video Games...The New (Old School) MTV?
I love the song at the end of Infamous 2 (when the credits are rolling), it's from a band called Black Heart Procession and the name of the song is "Fade Away".

While playing Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit I heard "Edge of the Earth" by 30 Seconds To Mars and while playing Mirror's Edge I heard "Still Alive" by Lisa Miskovsky and fell in love with those songs too.

I'm sure there's more songs I've heard while gaming that I fell in love with, but I'm old and forgetful, so I can't think of them right now.
The moral of the story is this, video games are better than the radio and MTV when it comes to finding new music. So listen closely next time you're playing your favorite video game, you may just hear your next favorite song.
