    They're energetic. I don't want to cry halfway through playing Mario, why would I want to feel emotional when playing that game? Sure you'll probably feel nostalgic, but his tracks aren't even supposed to be like modern gaming music, which is good. Also, no reason to be ''fed up'' with people just because they have a different taste than you.

    And yes, he might have composed for some of the best games ever, but his music has contributed to make them such amazing games.

    Whoever made the soundtrack for Beyond Good and Evil needs to make more for other games. I was blown away by the ambiance the music created.

    Roaming around.
    My vote goes to Hans Zimmer everything he makes is just epic.
    I thought I did, but apparently I don't

    If you die you die but if you don't die you still die.

    Today's game is crappy overuse of "epic" symphonic.
    This is the real deal
    Link is broken, do you have another one for that piece?
    <-- That is otterly adorable.

    Voted Hans Zimmer, since his compositions are usually just massive and really convey perfectly fitting moods. Whom I really miss in the list is Frank Klepacki!!! (most of the good stuff in C&C and several others)

    Nobuo Uematsu so far ahead of anyone else.

    I don't think if have heard of many groups performing the other guys music. Nobuo Uematsu sells CDs and seats for concerts like mad... even when it isn't him performing.

    EDIT: Also of note is the fact he did a lot of really good work on the SNES... not exactly a high quality sound system.
