Here we are, you know, almost 20 years after release and this is still #1 in my book.

I'd also submit Lunar: Silver Star Story, Lunar 2: Eternal Blue, Final Fantasy IX, Starcraft, Disgaea, Super Street Fighter II (Super so as to include Fei Long's and T-Hawk's stages), Sonic 2, and Sonic 3+Knuckles in no particular order. They are all fantastic.
I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do, I do not do. But what I hate, I do.

My favorite has to be Final Fantasy IV. These guys did a fine job of re-mixing it:

Here's my list...mostly from consoles, though.

Metal Gear Solid 1: The Twin Snakes
Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater (hint: try searching for the hidden, stamina-restoring music tracks via codec/radio...lots of good easy listening jazz)
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (more of MGS3's jazz, except it's usually preloaded on your in-game iPod)
Mass Effect
Chrono Trigger (Yasunori Mitsuda goodness)
Chrono Cross (more Yasunori Mitsuda goodness)
Final Fantasy VII (Nobuo Uematsu goodness)
Final Fantasy VIII (more Nobuo Uematsu goodness)
Policenauts
Gran Turismo 1
Mega Man 2
Mega Man 3
Mega Man 9
Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
Command and Conquer Red Alert 2
Einhander (anyone into trance, house or high-BPM electronic music should give this a listen)
Ad astra per aspera.

I don't know about soundtracks (don't have many of those), but the title music for the first Mass Effect game was spectacular.
