The quality of gaming music hasn't gone down but the likable melodies/and the pursuit of making a theme for a particular game has gone down a lot. That said, I haven't heard a musical track that was captivating to me since the SNES days. Hope that will change someday.

hehe, you just need to find more games to listen to. Touhou for example, my god... it's just too awesome. Falcom (name for both the company and band) has been making awesome music and games since 1981!
The popular Japanese composers (Mitsuda, Nomura, Sugiyama, etc.) are pushing out quality stuff most of the time and even if it's mediocre, I still liked most of their OSTs.
Shoji Meguro has been getting popular, since he is mostly related to any MegaTen related game.
Motoi Sakuraba - he works on like 4-6 games a year, so don't expect ultra spectacular OSTs from him. He seems to be running out of ideas, but he's just overworking it. He has some of the most legendary soundtracks in history...
There's too much to talk about video game OSTs tbh :)
I don't have anything westrn related sorry folks :( I mostly play Japanese games... I said this in a "video game logos" article on here, it is quite facinating how Japnese developers look at their games. The music is no exception.
