Can't have this discussion without mentioning Sonic 3 & knuckles. Also Outcast that was the first game I remember being fully scored and recorded by a full orchestra

Two games that really stick out for me are Super Mario Galaxy (1 and 2, hard to choose between the two), and The Wonderful 101. Oh man, The Wonderful 101.

MGS3 - Main Theme
Seconded. I'll pick out my own too:
MGS2 Main Theme
MGS4 Love Theme (though, I think this was removed from the final game)
Atelier Iris: Eternal Mana "Prism" Boss Battle
MGSV The Phantom Pain "
MGSV The Phantom Pain "Quiet" Theme
(You can get this in-game via a cassette tape after completing a mission)
DMC3 Battle Music 1 (This is the epic boss battle music)
My other favorite is the one where Dante almost dies, but toughens up after the battle against Dante, he goes down an evolved teng ne gru and gets eaten by a flying dragon of sorts.
Turok 64 "The Ancient City" Theme
Turok 64 Creepy "Catacombs" Theme
Xenogears' "Knight of Fire" Theme (epic boss battle music)
Xenogears' "Invasion" Theme (pre-tournament music)
Xenogears' "Bonds of Sea and fire" (I think this is the main theme of the game)
I'm trying to find ID's music, where he interrupts and reveals himself for the first time. God, that was an awesome introduction to a boss, complete with an awesome OST.
Castlevania: Symphony of the Night's "Prayer" Theme (menu music)
And just about anything after this. Aria of Sorrow offers up some AMAZING tracks. From start to finish, excellent OST's.

Megaman 3 - easily my favorite NES game OST of all time. That Snakeman and Shadowman beat is just too sick not to get down to.
My favorites: Gemini Man, and Snake Man. Epic.
Mega Man 4 has some too, like the opening cinematics, the main select screen, and Wily's Stage 2 (Those green sewers/bathroom-looking BG's)
Here's Wily's Stage 2 in MM4...
I dunno if the quality's good, but you get my drift, tho.
Stage 3 - Conduit is my #1 in that game. Once you get in there, you get the sense that something big is about to go down. And it did, several tanks await you in that stage. Once you get past that, oh man... such an accomplishment.

Kingdom Hearts and Undertale; 10/10
Tales of the Abyss has some fantastic final boss music and The Meaning of Life is super emotional

Persona is so effortlessly cool, man... It's not even funny.

Probably the entire Wind Waker soundtrack. Just listening to the music alone takes you to those moments in the game and you feel the emotion and just how incredible of a journey your accomplishing. 10/10, Masterpiece.

Can't forget this gem. Tears me up.
When my grandmother became terminally ill, we started preparing the funeral proceedings together. She wanted me to pick the music for the ceremony, this was one of the tracks I proposed to her. She agreed, and we did.
Probably the most emotional song I know in video game music history.

I know we all can see that Okami looks beautiful (and plays beautifully), but It's soundtrack is equally gorgeous.

Streets of Rage II (SEGA Genesis)- Full OST playlist It's just the best. Deal with it! 8)
Deus Ex (PC) - Full OST playlist Awesome moody music.
Super Hexagon - Courtesy, Otis, Focus (Live at BitSummit) Chipzel is definitely one of the best chiptune artists around at the moment. It's pure unadultured GameBoy sound btw.
Comic Bakery (C64) - Theme "Galway is God" as they say Friends of Bos vs Woz should recognize this one! =)

I was watching the Game Grumps playthrough of Katamari Forever, and it reminded me of how much I really enjoyed that game's soundtrack. So I decided to give a nod to two games with amazing remix soundtracks, Persona 4: Dancing all Night and Katamari Forever/Tribute.

Lack of Dark Souls love makes me sad.

Never forget from Halo 3. I would go online just to listen to this in the menu.
