You have Zelda,FF,Heavy rain,Mario,...even games like dead space or resident evil because the music ads a lot to the games. I don't talk about games that use music that already exists like gta.

Tough question . . . . Who in the world plays a game for the music ? And on a side note, President Evil 6 was excelently scored. DMC 1-4 is the exact opposite.

Most of the Final Fantasy games, Zelda has some great music as well. I also loved the soundtrack to Vice City and Brutal Legend (someone above mentioned).

Oh and contrary to what many seem to think, I really love Battlefield 3's main theme.

Journey has some of the best music I've ever heard in any game from any generation. It was a great game, but in my opinion wouldn't have been as incredible an experience if it wasn't for Austin Wintory's score.
Aside from that, I think the Halo games always have quality scores, as well as Final Fantasy VII, Bioshock, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Dragon Quest VIII, and Skyrim,

Good man :P

But I don't know.....there's a lot of older games in particular that I can't really remember all the music for. But it's hard to forget the music from Ocarina of Time. Easily one of my top choices.

i think this year has been really solid with journey, closure, and sound shapes. the journey score does such a great job of rising to drive the game both thematically and emotionally but also making moods that lie in the background and work with interactivity. the closure score is so brilliant because you can't really make a soundtrack from it. or if you did, it wouldn't be close to the same for nearly anybody who played the game. sound shapes is an odd one in that i probably wouldn't listen to beck, deadmau5, or the others much on their own, but the design of these musical worlds is such a brilliant way to experience them that i found myself going back.

all time, i really like everyday shooter, ocarina of time, and ico.

Kingdom Hearts has an iconic soundtrack that is vastly under appreciated.
