Anyone listen to video game music or soundtracks?

I listen to music from:

Pokemon Mystery Dungeon
Pokemon Mystery Dungeon 2
Pokemon Heart Gold/Soul Silver
MapleStory

And I'm currently looking to get some music from other games. Anyone know of good video game music? (Or am I the only one who listens to it?)

edit - Not looking for it anymore, thanks everyone. But since this has turned into a discussion pretty much, carry on~

- Persona 3 and Persona 4 are my favorites right now. They're kind of weird, but amazing. The song "Game" from P4 = <3
- The Final Fantasy series (7-10, at least) has good music. 12 is good too, but a bit lackluster.
- The World Ends With You is awesome, agreed.

I listen to stuff by Nobuo Uematsu and Yoko Shimomura (who composed the soundtracks for the Mario&Luigi games, Kingdom Hearts, and SUPER MARIO RPG).

I don't have the soundtrack for IV, it's been quite a while since I played the game, and it wasn't one of my favorites so I didn't play it much in the first place, so I honestly don't even remember its music that well. ^^;

Currently am in love with the Legend of Dragoon soundtrack~

But also listening/loving:
Personas 1, 3&4
Devil May Cry (will always love)
Devil Survivor
BlazBlue
Guilty Gear
Fatal Frames I-III [albeit they're all kind of creepy 98% of the time]
Final Fantasy XIII [and various others, but only have XIII's on here. ;;]
And a million others that would require a spoiler cut because it's long.

I'm a huge fan of Motoi Sakuraba, the man behind the Golden Sun and Baten Kaitos soundtracks. I've also been listening to quite a lot of Ocarina of Time lately.

I agree with Jet Set Radio+Future and TWEWY. Since we're I'm on the same type I'll throw in the No More Heroes 1/2 OST. Wonderfully done with a great blend of techno/rock.

other than the ones already mentioned, i'd have to add LaTale OSTs and Castlevania OSTs in there; tbh I've only played the DS and GBA versions of Castlevania, so idk about the other versions, but Order of Ecclesia and a few GBA ones have quite good OSTs~

I have a tonne of stuff from various Final Fantasy soundtracks that I listen to and love, despite having never played any of the games myself. XD Some of the old Sonic soundtracks and the Ocarina of Time OST are favourites of mine. I think I have tracks I love from pretty much every game I've played to be honest. Tell me I'm not the only one who goes into games and flips through the "play music" menus?

For anyone who loves soundtracks I'd recommend the Emminence Ensemble, as they do some amazing classical covers of video game and anime music. This is their take on the Super Mario Bros. theme here.

I liked the HGSS soundtrack and the music from The World Ends With You quite a lot. :33

Edit: OKAY SO I JUST PLAYED LAYTON FOR A LITTLE BIT AND HAVE TO SAY lol the Professor Layton series' soundtrack I am quite fond of. Often puts me to sleep too, lol. Also Okami had pretty good music, iirc. :D

I love music from video games.
Okage has an amazing and creative soundtrack. But no one's ever heard of that game. Katamari series also.
As mentioned before, Persona 3 and 4 as well as the world ends with you are awesome.
I also really like FFX's and Baten Kaitos soundtracks.
Rhythm games tend to have awesome music too. Gitaroo man's soundtrack is epic.
Sonic games have really nice soundtracks, too. Donkey Kong 64 is really atomospheric. And the original 4 part .hack game series.
I tend to really like soundtracks from older games, like Sonic as mentioned before. As well Pokemon music from gen 1 and 2, and megaman 2 is one of the best.

To me music is a very important aspect in a game. It can make a good game a meh game, an a meh game a good game.

I can't believe no one has said the Silent Hill soundtracks! They're amazing. SH 2 and 3 I think have the best music, imho.
Also love the Okami soundtrack. It's really calming and pretty.
Final Fantasy games, of course. FFX is my favorite soundtrack.
Katamari games have good soundtracks, if not quite strange, but I suppose that's to be expected :P
And I've always personally loved Zelda soundtracks. Twilight Princess had some great songs.

Thank god I'm not the only one. However, I only really like one song. :V

I love the Okami soundtrack, and the SSBM/SSBB ones as well. Castlevania also has some great songs as well, like The Tragic Prince.

I'm addicted to survival horror game soundtracks--particularly the Silent Hill osts--and the Lost Odyssey ost. Mmhhh such excellent music to study to.
