I like some of the orchestral music from Star Fox Assault. Star Wolf's theme is my favorite from that game!
Miror B. has a groovy battle theme in Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness.
The Mega Man series and Advance Wars series have good music as well.
But I really can't decide which is my absolute favorite of all time. I'd have to say that all Kingdom Hearts music comes very close. The new tracks from 358/2 Days and Birth By Sleep are really up there, I'd say.
-------------------- Your layout has been removed.
Yoshi's Island- Castle: Easily my favorite castle theme from the entire Mario series. It just had such an eerie, chilling feel to it that set it apart from other castle themes.
Golden Sun- Venus Lighthouse: A grand and epic theme for the final dungeon. Had a real heroic nature to it.
Golden Sun: The Lost Age- Mars Lighthouse: Also the final dungeon theme, this time, it had a very haunting feeling with a great sense of danger.
Golden Sun: The Lost Age- Tropical Island- A simple, but soothing tropical theme.
Sonic CD- Metallic Madness (Bad Future): A rocked out theme for the final level.
Phoenix Wright: Justice For All: Search ~ Core 2002: The perfect fit for a mysterious and evil character. The part when it was first heard in the game was highly appropriate, as it played just as a certain character showed their true, darker side. An epic pairing of a plot twist and music.
There is just much VG music that i can consider favorites. So i will list my favorites OST:
-Castlevania Symphony of the Night
-Tales of Symphonia
-Paper Mario 1 & 2
-Seiken Densentsu 3
-Zelda: MM, OoT, WW and TP
-Super Mario Galaxy
-Donkey Kong Country 2
-Banjo-Kazooie and Banjo-Tooie
-Jet Force Gemini
(single music: Sonic the Hedgehog - His World like most of the final battle songs)
That's it from what I can remember now, but i probably have more.
I like many songs from various games, but some are:
DKC Series: Fear Factory,Stickerbush Symphony and Rockface Rumble
Super Mario World: Cave Drums,Forest of Illusion and Vanilla Dome
Yoshi's Island: Touch Fuzzy, Get Dizzy
Kirby Super Star: Green Greens, Bubbly Clouds
Pac in Time: Area 41-50 - The Castle
Super Mario Kart: Vanilla Lake
Super Bomberman: Level 2...
For some reason, I can't think of many of them right now, but Song of Healing is definitely my favourite piece of video game music ever. The Hidden Village is also pretty awesome. One of the only parts of Twilight Princess that is awesome and not a boss battle.
Man, this game was so underrated. It had some excellent tracks.
Also, I believe I stated in an older thread that my favorite VG track ever is this (Nobles' Causeway from Everquest). Something about it is almost magical in the way it can affect me.
Other tracks I like (there are tons, but I'll keep it short), in no particular order:
Wonder Panorama - Mega Man ZX
Giants' Cry - La-MuLANA
Silver Samurai - Phoenix Wright
Fusion, Descent - Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles
Northern Country Kamui I - Okami
An Empty Tome - Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia
Northwall - Actraiser
Tubelectric - Jazz Jackrabbit
tried to be as non-mainstream as possible. seriously, they are all awesome tracks. check them out.
