    Actually, I like Uematsu more than most other video-game composers I've heard (not to say that means much...). His mood pieces are really atmospheric and just beautiful.

    God no...

    Modern Warfare, along with other "casualised" games (commonly known as "crap") are destroying the whole industry.

    Gaming is a Far Cry from what it used to be. (pun intended)

    Uematsu has a few good ones here & there, but he's far from the best IMO.

    Troels Brun Folmann did some amazing work on Tomb Raider Legend and Anniversary. The music was so ambient and then it would get wild and aggressive. I haven't played much of Underworld yet, but I will soon.

    It's not newly composed music, but the 1940s jazz music used in Bioshock and Fallout 3 were just sensational. Ink Spots, Billie Holiday, etc etc

    A couple of favourites of mine. Panzer Dragoon is probably my favourite VG series for music.

    Super Mario Galaxy's soundtrack music won my heart over. The orchestra soundtracks were simply stunning.

    Heroes of Might and Magic games - Paul Romero and Rob King (the greatest IMO).
    Might and Magic VI & VII - Steve Baca, Rob King, Paul Romero and Jennifer Wang.
    Hammer of the Gods (When your hero is dying, the angel of death takes you while Wagner's the Ride of the Valkyries is being sounded).
    Fable: The Lost Cahpters - Russell Shaw.
    King's Bounty - The Legend & Armored Princess - Mikhail Kostylev along with TriHorn Productions.
    Mount and Blade - Jesse Hopkins and a few more, if I recall correctly, have done a wonderful job composing M&B's Medieval Music.
    IL-2 Sturmovik 1946 - Jeremy Soule.
    Warlords IV: Heroes of Etheria - ?
    Rise of Prussia - There's a few Violin Concerti by Vivaldi.
    Disciples II - Philippe Charron.
    Age of Wonders - Michiel van den Bos.

    damn I also big fans of HoMM series. the era with HoMM3 and those customized maps around the community was my best gaming experience . i missed the 3DO community fellow. for music, HoMM 4 and so on are great, but the game just missed its classical touch afterthat.

    Nice to see a HoMM fan over here. For music, it's very hard to choose, but I do think II & III are the best while for gameplay HoMM IV is the worst (though, there's a few folks who would say it's the best, for some weird reasons) and HoMM III is the greatest (IMO). Frankly, I think HoMM V is very good but, as you said, missed its classical touch therefore might not be the best.

    BTW, I have..... this:

    The part that might strongly catch your eyes is the soundtrack CD of HoMM V including its expansion packs with short biographies of Paul Romero and Rob King.

    I like the great storyline overthere, from HoMM 2 to HoMM 3 there was great storyline about Erathia etc. There also good story about how the fight between two hero (I forget the name, the elf vs barbarian) and the weapon clash blow the continent.
