As I hope to later in life become a composer, I’ve recently started paying more attention to video game soundtracks (as a possible career, and also just for fun). Does anybody have any particular favorite video game scores that they would recommend?
It doesn’t really have a “score”, but the game soundtrack is made up of tracks from The Crystal Method’s debut album, Vegas.

but halo has an excellent score. i know there are tons more, but nothing comes immediately to mind.
you should check out http://www.videogameslive.com though, if you haven’t already.
The Final Fantasy games always had fantastic music, as did Chrono Trigger.
One of my favorites that never gets brought up is Shadowrun for the SNES.
The score for the Gabriel Knight PC games from Sierra are amazing as well, especially the 1st one.
the trick to staying sane is to just out-crazy the world
I find these days the quality of game music is on par if not better than movie scores.
I quite like the trailer music that is done by two steps from hell (slight tangent there)
The Bioshock soundtrack, oh and Half-Life 2 soundtrack. I also like p0rtals if you can even call it music, more like sounds. Also the vintage nostalgia songs from Bioshock and the Fallout games, even if they arn’t original for the games. Still awsome though. Oh and as close to retro as i get would have to be the Scott Pilgrim vs. The World The game soundtrack. heh heh
All the halo music compositions
Very funny, Scotty. Now beam down my clothes
