Chrono Cross is the best of all time, without any exceptions or doubts

Adding the original Valkyrie Profile and Star Ocean 2 soundtracks... as well as the Legend of Dragoon soundtrack. Of course, I'm going by how well the soundtrack is used just as much as by how good it is in a pure sense.

Independently from the game, Chrono Cross still wins, but FFVII and any number of other big-name titles have excellent soundtracks... but gaming companies seem to have lost the ability to understand how to use a good BGM. It has been so long since I've been moved purely by the sound of the BGM in synch with the scene I'm watching unfold.

It's tough to just pick a few favorites, as music is one of my favorite aspects of videogames. I'm a big fan of Jun Senoue's work on the SONIC The Hedgehog series, but I don't think I can pick just one game I prefer over the others. Of course, there is Kohei Tanaka's work on Sakura Wars. And I love the rocking tracks from Guilty Gear X and XX. And I'd like to add the Sega Saturn Magic Knight Rayearth game as a personal favorite as well.

Lowering the price of the PS3 to $150 is like mass producing the Big Zam. It's the greatest idea that will never come to pass. OH SHI-!

Had to dig this up because I wanted to start a thread about it~

My Top 5:

1. Final Fantasy X

-That's no contest. Easily the most memorable and fitting and glorious and....yada yada yada I effing love it :)

The rest are hard though~

2. Persona 3

-It's a whole lot different then any of the other soundtracks on my list, but it's really good.

3. Super Mario Galaxy (In general, but I think 2 had the better soundtrack)

-Not really what most people would think of when they mention great soundtracks, but it's so awesome. An orchestral soundtrack = best decision Miyamoto ever made (you know, other than his other brilliant ideas in general)

4. Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles

- Ah, another good one. It's a spin-off, but I believe it has a better soundtrack than most mainline ones. A lot of the songs were very moving and inspiring to me, and fit the mood to a T.

5. The Kingdom Hearts Series (With a lean more to 2 for having the best soundtrack)
"Dearly Beloved." Nuff said.

Maybe, but I'm getting REALLY sick of that same song playing in the background during free-roam ALL THE FUCKING TIME WITHOUT EVER STOPPING.
