Okay, I've never played Portal but I just love the ending theme song.

I don't know about "theme" song but I think Fable had the best soundtrack ever...i could hum along to every single tune in it and it was awesome...still is. I just hope the Fable 2 soundtrack is just as good :D

I could swear this is similar to two other threads I've posted in today. :?

Kingdom Hearts/MGS/FFX and FFVI have the best ones I think.

Super Mario Bros

Mass Effect ending theme was the best credits song I ever heard. Hell Mass Effect overall had some of the best original music for a game in a long time.

Legend of Zelda theme is tops for me. The Playstation version of Duke Nukem had "The Thing I Hate" by Stabbing Westward as a theme song so that's up there too. Final Fantasy X had a sweet theme as well.

It'd be a pain in the butt looking a link to post but MGS3's ending theme is hands down the best video game theme song. Specifically the acoustic guitar version of the MGS series main theme that fades into the song at the end. Very powerfull stuff especially if you've followed the series all the way up untill that game that song will really bring you back.

Halo 3's theme is awesome, really well done.

God of War's theme is pretty awesome too, and fits well with the game.

It's on Castlevania: CoD. I forget the title of the song though. I would link you but I need to go home and hear it again so I can link the right song. I have no speakers at work.

My all-time favorite is probably Morrowinds title track, but I have come to like GTA IV's Soviet Connection.
