This would go on /vg/, but I prefer music listeners opinions instead of common game enthusiasts, who seem to only listen (or pay attention) to Final Fantasy or Metal Gear (good soundtracks, but... just gimme a break)
We don't have a "/vg/" faggot.
My favorite game soundtracks are Elder Scrolls and Hitman: Bloody Money.
I really enjoy the Guilty Gear songs (Daisuke Ishiwatari)
I would agree that Jesper Kyd has some good music from Hitman.
Also like th Command and conquer soundtracks especially the new one, Red Alert 3. Thought it was excellent.
Other good game soundtracks would be the music from:
Jazz Jackrabbit's music was awesome. I think I still have the mods somewhere (or were they XMs?).
I'll join on C&C soundtracks for the military epic yet rock'n'roll touch. Hitman music are really good, and in the infiltration soundtrack I'll also cite Splinter Cell (it was Amon Tobin's work IIRC).
The Dreamfall soundtrack has some really good tracks.
Chrono Cross Soundtrack is my favorite.
Mirror's Edge Soundtrack is kick ass as well.
Check out the artist (no, not Lisa), it has some commercial releases as well. The name is Solar Fields.
I like Devil May Cry 4's soundtrack. I haven't gotten a chance to get UT3, but UT99 and UT2k4 had some good tracks. Granado Espada (korean grindan MMO) has some really neat ambient techno and trance.
The guys behind the soundtrack to Granado Espada are the same as those that did the Ragnarök online soundtrack. And it's quite good too. And even if not for the original songs and themes, the Xmas remixes are awesome.
when I'm at work, or shovelling snow, I just can't seem to get enough Earthbound music. Eventually, the originals can get a bit old, but I listen to "Rock Candy" 1 - 5, or "Bound Together" (all 6 freely available) and they never get old. Well, excpet for the 100 million remixes of some heartfelt Polyanna.
My computer's fan
i am totally serious...
the pokemon blue and red soundtrack just takes me back...
Just dropping in to say that i love Jazz Jackrabbit's music too.

I love a lot of Sakuraba soundtracks. VP1 and SO2S in particular. I wish he did more live shows. A youtube of one of my favorite live track, from SO3, with some sick improvisation: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dHOrf9fEKY4
I've mostly been listening to Manabu Namiki's work:
Anything from the Seiken Densetsu 3 soundtrack is brilliant to me... ^^ I also like most of the tunes from Earthbound, Megaman X 1-3, Donkey Kong Country 1-2, everything Kirby, Golden Sun, lots of classic tunes. I couldn't possibly name them all here! My iPod is packed.
>>19 OMG YES, T_T I have teh soudn track by that Guy but it's Seiken Denetsu 2 but I wanna get teh sound track for three
also, teh Metriod Prime stuff is pretty good, I liek it cuz I can remeber all teh stuff i killed to the music :D
The Megaman Legends 1 and Tales of Symphonia soundtracks are the only ones I have.
>>18 He is great. I still need to play some of those newer games, or maybe just hear the soundtracks on Tube.
Recently I've been listening to a lot of Zuntata (Hisayoshi Ogura, Yasuhisa Watanabe in particular) and the Super Sweep / Namco roster (Sanodg, Megaten, Namiki, J99, Iwatsuki, Aya). Koji Kondo, Jun Ishikawa, Uematsu, Sakimoto, Yuzo Koshiro are also top notch.
I like Persona 3 FES's soundtrack a lot. It's exciting, but still so pleasant...
The upcoming HL2 mod Neotokyo has an amazing soundtrack; my CD just came in the mail yesterday, excellent stuff.
Chrono Trigger <3
Fuck yeah, Yuzo Koshiro.
Streets of Rage II has one of the greatest soundtracks ever.
My favorite artists are Solar Fields (Mirror's Edge), Jeremy Soule (Oblivion and Prey), Inon Zur (Fallout 3, Prince Of Persia - Crysis wasn't as good), Jesper Kyd (Hitman, UT3), Angelo Badalamenti (I know he's not a game regular, but the Fahrenheit score is out of this world), Alexander Brandon (Jazz Jackrabbit, UT Classic), Sonic Mayhem (Quake 3, Hellgate: London), Adam Skorupa (Painkiller).
Im not sure who writes the street fighter soundtracks, but man they are fuckin great!
Solar Field's did Mirors Edge's music? Holy shit, now I HAVE to get that game!
I recently started re-playing Summon Night: Swordcraft Story for the GBA - I was really surprised at the music. It was awesome! It had a definite 8-bit feel to it, and there were a few really great tracks. I'd suggest having a listen to it.
Also the Kingdom hearts music. Correct me if Im wrong, but i believe that the final fantasy people made the soundtrack for it too, which makes sense cuz it is fantastically composed.
Doom 1-2 and fucking quake 2 to me are the best
i think that because they're the best to listen to when you go on a rampage killing people, classmates, teachers, and cops and then commiting suicide
