Final Fantasy VI

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.

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)
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)

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