I think Nintendo has some of the worst with more of a bunch of jingles and non-offensive, asexual, minimal impact ditties. My picks would be:



Akira Yamaoka (Silent Hill)
Johan Skugge & Jukka Rintamäki (battlefield 3 & 4)
Akitaka Tohyama (Tekken)
Susumu Hirasawa (Berserk)
Jesper Kyd (Kane and lynch, hitman)
Tate Norio (King of Fighters)

No because no company really has "the best soundtracks." Most companies that have put out games with amazing music have also put out games with awful music.
The problem with trolls is that you can't logic with them. The same goes for idiots.

Square Enix has the best. They have a lot more than just Final Fantasy.

They're consistently great, but Atlus/Shoji has them beat in my personal opinion.

Nope, definitely not. The music isn't horrible, but i'm usually more into songs with lyrics, so i usually end up going more for themes like SA2's sonics theme, Live and Learn, Child of Lights ending theme, usually the ending theme to the Walking Dead games, etc.

I wanted to say their music is mostly a bunch of generic happy baby music with no real emotion and total lack of drive or else its clichéd faux-epic orchestral junk.

The best soundtracks come from games that are more or less exclusive to Nintendo, if that counts.

All joking aside (seriously, though, AA has yet to have a bad soundtrack. At first I didn't like this version of the classic cornered theme as much as others, but watching an LP of PL vs PW has made it one of my favorites ) Nintendo's games do generally have awesome soundtracks, especially the Zelda series.

Koji Kondo, who does a great deal of Nintendo's music, is a legend of his own accord, but he doesn't live up to Nobuo Uematsu. I will buy whatever that man touches.

But I think about it, I can't say Nintendo games have better osts than another company. I get more specific, because what about second parties such as Monolith?

So without further ado, my favorite composers:

1. Nobuo Uematsu
2. Yoko Shimomura
3. Revo
4. ACE+
5. Koji Kondo
6. Shoji Meguro

Monolithsoft is first party.

The "Mother" series is known for it's incredible soundtracks.
Currently playing: Xenoblade Cheonicles (Wii).
Not playing anything else, this game has taken over my life.
