I gotta go with Harry Gregson-Williams for his work on MGS and Shoji Meguro for his work on Persona and other Atlus games!

What about you, GD?

Like a lot of music in gaming but Yamane Michiru is certainly one of my favorites, when her name showed up for the Bloodstained Kickstarter I was very excited.

Michiru Yamane is a definite favourite of mine. Castlevania: Symphony of the Night is one of my all time favourite soundtracks.

Everyone who did FF mainline score never failed me yet. X-2, XIII-2 and Lightning returns dont count.

@SolidGame_basic: Nope. That was Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest which was a NES game. Symphony of the Night was a PlayStation game.

Archangel knows his CastleVania games!

Not only that but Simon's Quest was composed by Matsubara Kenichi. While Bloody Tears is amazing, it's one tune; compared to Symphony of the Night which has an entire OST that is simply incredible.

Not to kick on the first few games in the series for mediocre sondtracks, but they had one or two great tracks each at best.

CastleVania didn't really get a whole amazing soundtrack till Vampire Killer. Even Super IV, possibly one of the greatest entries has some very weak tunes, and a lot of the best are remixes due to being a remake of the original.

Composer Darren Korb developed a unique acoustic hip hop sound by using sampled beats along with acoustic guitar.
