good list but obviously alot of great osts and themes left out you cant possible put 10 of the best out of the dozens of gaming themes...heck the mario theme is missing here too lol

like so many final fantasy themes ( FF6 Terra etc )
to many great Halo tracks etc..too many great themess.

well uncharted 3 is coming soon, anyone heard of

Uncharted 3 Nate 2.0 theme that better be in the main menu been there for 2 games now :P

Completely agree on FFVI. In my opinion, it has the best soundtrack of any Final Fantasy game (Tactics a close 2nd), and considering how great some of them are, I think that makes it the greatest soundtrack possibly ever. (by the way, yes, I think the Terra theme song is the most memorable from FFVI, along with the Locke and Edgar/Figaro one...and...hell, they are all highly memorable, in my opinion)

It's a tough call, as there are so many good soundtracks. Often times, there can be a game with an amazing song, even if the soundtrack isn't as consistent throughout.

Just to name a few really good ones (mostly RPGs):

Xenogears, Chrono Trigger/Cross, Final Fantasy Tactics, Nier (yes, it's probably the best soundtrack released this generation, too bad the gameplay is meh...good story though), Uncharted 2 (highly cinematic, hoping UC3 is just as good or better), etc.

Of course, this list is theme songs, not full soundtracks, so the list is a lot harder to narrow down for me.

My personal favorite:
MGS3: the snake eater one
the original FF theme.
Legend of Zelda theme
Katamari Damacy

It's weird to feature Mitsuda's Chrono Cross and not as well the excellent Xenogears scores , but i guess it was a need of variety .

The song played when Kratos carries his dead brother in Ghost of Sparta.

Sorry for the spoiler, but its the best song ever.
