Within the context of audio -- and video game music in particular—a game rip (also gamerip) is the result of taking the audio from a computer/video game and storing it in a format that is more accessible for listening (often digital files such as MP3s). This is often performed to obtain music that is not available on a soundtrack. There are two major methods of obtaining, or "ripping", audio from a game: digital extraction, and recording.

Famous quotes containing the words game and/or rip:
“The chess-board is the world; the pieces are the phenomena of the universe; the rules of the game are what we call the laws of Nature. The player on the other side is hidden from us. We know that his play is always fair, just, and patient. But also we know, to our cost, that he never overlooks a mistake, or makes the smallest allowance for ignorance.”
—Thomas Henry Huxley (18251895)
“We are double-edged blades, and every time we whet our virtue the return stroke straps our vice. Where is the skillful swordsman who can give clean wounds, and not rip up his work with the other edge?”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
