List some of your favourite individual tracks from games (if you're not sure of the track's name, just put a brief description of how it sounds or where it features in the game). 10 is probably the best limit to stick too, and you don't have to put them in any order.

-Duke Nukem Theme - Lee Jackson (Duke Nukem 3D)
-Mombasa Suite - Martin O'Donnell (Halo 2)
-Halo Theme Mjolnir Mix - Martin O'Donnell (Halo 2)
-Dancing Mad - Nobuo Uematsu (Final Fantasy VI/The Black Mages)
-Maybe I'm A Lion - Nobuo Uematsu (Final Fantasy VIII/The Black Mages II)
-Metal Gear Solid 2 Main Theme - Harry Gregson-Williams (Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty)
-Enclosure - KCEJ Sound Team (Metal Gear Solid)
-Tomb Raider Main Theme - Nathan McCree (Tomb Raider)
-FarCry Main Theme - Unknown (FarCry)
-Aeris' Theme - Nobuo Uematsu (Final Fantasy VII)

Oh God, don't get me started.
I probably have at least 100. Give me a while and I'll sort through them and decide. :D

Yeah. I could've listed half of the FF tracks... Limiting is very tricky.

All of the music on the "Tomorrow Never Dies" PS1 video game

Neo Tokyo - Graeme Norgate (TimeSplitters 2)
Cavern - KCEJ Sound Team (Metal Gear Solid)
Tomb Raider Main Theme - (Tomb Raider)
Tomb Raider II Main Theme - (Tomb Raider II)

This is a cruel rule, Psyched. There are various categories according to which I could group my favourite game tracks (and game music is, btw, almost the only music I listen to) and even then picking that few of them is a major pain in the arse. Right, these here are based on how long I've been listening to them, i.e. those I haven't got tired of regardless of how long I've had them. That doesn't equal the most brilliant, just the most persistent.

1. Auron's Theme - Nobuo Uematsu - Final Fantasy X - dream of a synaesthete.
2. Beyond The Wasteland - Nobuo Uematsu - Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children - it's got an addictive rhythm. Shame the song went to waste(land) in a film that even compared to others game-based is a joke. (btw I know it is technically a film track, but I'm just not used to thinking of it as such. It's FFVII alright)
3. Toki-no Hourousha - Nobuo Uematsu, Risa Ohki - Final Fantasy Vocal Collections I: Pray - oh, the brass voice over a dark blue desert...
4. Harukanaru Kokyou - Nobuo Uematsu, Risa Ohki - Final Fantasy Vocal Collections II: Love Will Grow - don't ask why. It's just an obvious choice when I have no idea what to listen to next.
5. Yason - Jang, Sung-Woon (or something) - Magna Carta - one of the few good battle march themes I've found, quite ironically never used in a battle.
6. We've Got To Believe In Something - Kajiura Yuki - Xenosaga III - that's just got both the melody and the choirs - another "hole-filler".
7. Gagazet Mountain - Noriko Matsueda, Takahito Eguchi - Final Fantasy X-2 - for some reason it doesn't wear off as fast as the sappy melody of "People of the North Pole" from FFX, and I love mountain environment themes in general.
8. Into The Fray - Jack Wall - Jade Empire - drums drums drums!!! :cln: Even fake!
9. Unnamed piece from the "Mystery of the Trinity" mission briefing from FreeSpace 2 - Daniel Wentz - short and some would say dull, but sums up everything I've come to love about FreeSpace 2 atmosphere (uh, pun unintended). Although it's not the only FS2 track I can listen to over and over.
10 Klayman's Theme - Terry S. Taylor - Neverhood - :D That is the one soundtrack to rule them all. And you thought it was Uematsu all along? ;)

There are so many! But the one that had the most impact on me is the soundtrack to Primal. The combat music in particular is by a band called 16Volt, who I hadn't heard of until I played the game. They're a fantastic band. Since buying their 'best of' album I've listened to it almost everyday. My favorite songs of theirs are the ones used in Primal- Suffering You, And I Go and Happy Pill are brilliant tracks! I can't wait for their new album this Spring! :D

Laras Backpack - :tmb: Primal's got one of the best music scores in the history of gaming. It's a pity that ingame versions of 16 Volt music (without lyrics I mean) are nowhere available.

Just about every soundtrack in every level of the classic megadrive sonic series.

I know what you mean, Forwen, but I have seen threads with multiple categories that become ridiculously cumbersome. I've also an expansive library of videogame music, comprised of MP3s and MIDIs, and it is hard to pick, so I had to try my best way from experience. ^_^

Makes me feel like I should've set the limit a little higher, though. :\
