Yup :] Chrono trigger, breath of fire series, final fantasy of course, etc.  Ya love those nostalgia-inducing songs.

It's not just nostalgia.  They were actually memorable and catchy. XD

Most game music now, I honestly can't tell one track from the next. :(

Are we meaning work composed by Nobuo Uematsu and Yasunori Mitsuda?

I'm meaning just game music in general.  A lot more effort was put into making it memorable and distinguishable. X3

Actually, I'm really partial a piece (two actually) in a game called Ace Combat 04

GAWD VG music has become so generic and uninteresting. It seems the only people interested in making quality tunes are Nintendo. Super Mario Galaxy and Skyward Sword have really great, memorable tunes to them. But honestly, when I'm looking for something to listen to, I go for chiptunes or just straight up tracks from NES games.

I miss the days when composers wrote all kinds of totally crazy music and impossible tracks to go along with the action. Usually crazy-active, octave displaced basslines (unplayable), and totally blocked drum tracks that aren't really playable by one person :p I mean seriously, Capcom and Konami were the kings of this back in the late 80's and early 90's with the Megaman and Castlevania franchises, to name just a few. Capcom really went back to their roots in Megaman 9: everything was spot on, and the music was no exception. Galaxy Man stage <333333333

Nice. :3

My favorite composer of all time is Michiko Naruke who did the Wild Arms series.   Just about ANY track she's done is pure awesome.  If you haven't heard any of her stuff, DO SO NOW! :D

Of course I hold no one else to this belief...

I still have to say the best in-game sound track ever was from Tie Fighter, because well... it didn't have one.  

The key to it was the iMuse song generator.  It was responsible for generating dynamic in-mission music with special samples for every event that happened.  Enemy ship arrivals, mission objectives, destruction of ships... All based on what the player is doing that exact moment.

This one starts out slow, but it's got a good mix of what it did.
