    As much as I lobe Nobuo and I even got to meet him, he signed my Unopened Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy 3 SNES games. I have to go with Harry Gregson Williams

    David Wise did Battletoads, Donkey kong country, diddy kong racing and a whole slew of other Rareware titles while Grant Kirkhope did Banjo games and KoA: Reckoning amongst others.

    Jesper Kyd. Propably shared with Michael McCann. I find Jeremy Soule too generic.

    Dude, where's Marty O'Donnel from the Halo Series ? He's one hell of a composer ! He can make an epic and calm music at the same time, listen to the whole discography of the Halo Series (Halo 1-2-3-Reach), and you'll be astonished with his musical work.

    No Frank Keplacki? The guy did a brilliant job with the C&C music, and is doing great in End of Nations aswell.

    Hans Zimmer. Whatever that guy made is bloody awesome.
    An, oh, ofcourse, Frank Klepacki. is 2nd on my list.

    Answer was given in the third post. I dont think anyone has been more prolific then Nobuo Uematsu.

    If we were talking about best composer from that list 'in general', Hans Zimmer > All.

    However the question was specifically games, and Jeremy Soule wins the title for me there.

    I've never played a Final Fantasy game, but I've played the majority of games composed by Jeremy Soule and the Music is always Mind Blowing. So he definitely wins the Category for me.

    Koji Kondo should definitely be on here.

    Where the hell is Koji Kondo?

    Trying to remember her name. She actually did compose for a great old game I played in around 1998 I believe, called Castlevania Symphony of the Night. I don't think she's listed in the poll, though.

    I only didn't vote for Hans Zimmer because he's more of a movie guy (and yes, I know he's done a few video games too.) But I do love his stuff. However, this thread is about video games, so I voted for Jack Wall instead (and wanted to vote for Jeremy Soule at the same time)

    Nobuo hands down, no real competiton, everything he touches turns into gold. Yes the other ones certainly have their moments and has made really good music, but the range of Uematsu is insane.

    I gotta say I love the Skyrim soundtrack, by Jeremy Soule.
    It's just that I love the Metal Gear franchise even more.
