Favorite video game music tracks?

Well let's start off by saying this song is like crack for the ears:

Ok now with that out of the way, here's the ones that have left the greatest impression on me over the years:

1. Empire Earth Title Track: certainly the most epic music I've ever heard in its genre. Pardon the apparent low bitrate of this particular recording of it:

2. Megaman X, X2, X3 soundtracks. Though for the SNES, these tunes rocked, and were done so well you could easily imagine their sound as legit rock tunes. Megaman isn't aka Rockman for nothing, after all. However, now we have this awesome guy so we can no longer leave anything to the imagination: 

And while we're here with this guy, lets go to #3 as well, since he did a bunch of metal covers for Chrono Trigger as well. The game's music is hands-down the best complete work of video game music I've heard, with Frog's Theme being my favorite track: 

4. last, and probably also least, I nevertheless very much like the title and hobbiton themes from the Lord of the Rings Vol 1 for SNES, even though the game itself wasn't exactly spectacular:

The only story-line that I think is even more sublime is Chrono Trigger as far RPG's go.  I don't know if you've ever heard the music from that game but Nabuo Uematsu helped write it as well.

Ah, well that makes sense. A titan as far as I'm concerned in the genre. When will we all realize that Peter is just right when it comes to video game soundtracks. I just started my first plunge into the game, but instantly I'm met with interesting music and genius composition. I'll hopefully continue to update this thread and share whatever I hear as I dive deeper into the game. 

Back in the day, I played World of Warcraft (cringe, I know) with my roommate at the time, and a particular area featured an instrument known as the Nyckelharpa. Basically a keyed violin of sorts. Very cool. 

These two do a great job:
