    Go Shiina. Fantastic composition and execution and carries out a fammiliar theme throughout songs very well. I'm also a big fan of Yoko Shimomura's Legend of Mana work.

    edit: AND YES, KOICHI SUGIYAMA. Sucks at battle themes, but his other work is just..so, so good, I can't even begin to describe eloquently.

    Miki Higashino definitely stands out for her work in the Suikoden series (except 3, which was lost without her ) She has made some of the best battle/war themes I have ever heard, and her town themes are always amazing, and usually a town theme isn't one of a soundtrack's standouts.

    Noriyuki Iwadare for his work in the Grandia series... I've only heard the first one in full, but I loved every minute of it... He does great battle music, and his town themes always give you a great feel for the area.

    Yuki Kajiura is hands-down, my favorite VG composer ever. Her work is absolutely amazing. She has the most dramatic and driven battle themes I have ever heard, and Hepatica #1 and #3 from Xenosaga III nearly brought me to tears the first time I heard them. Her work in the .hack/sign anime is equally amazing.

    (and also Koji Kondo but not Hirokazu Andu, sorry... haven't played enough Final Fantasy. Though I'm loving the soundtrack in Final Fantasy 8 right now)

    EDIT: I found out that Stewart Copeland did the Spyro games.
    Stewart Copeland. How could I forget him? I always listen to that song on the stage Wizard Peak.

    For me it would be Yuzo Koshiro (Streets of Rage), Akira Yamaoka (Silent Hill), Kou Otani (Shadow of the Colossus), Kenji Yamamoto (Metroid) and Yoko Shimomura (Kingdom Hearts).
    A Metroid on the brain is worth two in the tube.

    Akira Yamaoka - Silent Hill

    Akira is a very very talented music composer whose music expresses tragedy, sorrow, tension, and fear almost perfectly. No, forget I said that - I meant PERFECTLY. You won't find music quite like Akira's unless you get lucky. He is an amazing music composer for sure.

    Why can't we pick Nobuo Uematsu, hes the only composer I've recognized enough in the credits of games to actually remember?

    Oh well, I guess I will have to say Ogeretsu Kun, Manami Matsumae and Yoshihiro Sakaguchi in that case. I looked these names up online and I think they should be the names of the people who did the music for Megaman 2. I really enjoyed those songs the most out of any of the Megaman games. And it's the only game I remember any memorable music from.

    Masashi Hamauzu is awesome! He made music for Saga frontier 2, the SaGa games(unlimited, romancing, etc.), and some of the songs for final fantasy X. Not even Nobuo can compare to him!

    I like David Wise, Eveline Fischer, and Grant Kirkhope (mostly Rareware composers). Their work always puts a smile on my face.

    Hideki Naganuma (SEGA) - Guy is a genius, music I can listen to repeatedly and still love it

    Yutaka Minobe and Tatsuyuki Maeda (SEGA) - For skies of Arcadia's soundtrack, which was brilliance.

    Hideaki Kobayashi & Fumie Kumatani (SEGA) - Responsible ofr many brilliant PSO and PSU soundtracks.

    Jeremy Soule - A recent favourite for his orchestral soundtracks which have done wonders for the Guild Wars series.
