It's too hard for me to choose between Uemasu, Mitsuda, Kondo, Sakuraba and Yamane. I seriously can't decide. Also there's Yoko Shimamura and SHADE (the composer for Alicesofts music) as well.

Uematsu's kinda gone downhill for awhile now. FF6 represented his golden age of compositions and while FF7 lapsed somewhat, he rebounded quite well with FF8. Now? I'm not quite enthralled with his works since I found Blue Dragon to be wanting. Enjoyable for short spurts, but I wouldn't listen to it from cover to cover.

Hamauzu and Sakimoto claim the throne for me. Sakimoto never ceases to amaze me with how expressive his themes are in conveying the scope of the game, ranging from the epic like FFTactics, to the whimsical, like Opoona. Hamauzu's also got some nice soundtracks, especially with Unlimited Saga and Saga Frontier II. I'm really having high hopes for the FF13 soundtrack since that one sounds especially promising from the trailer music we've heard so far.

Shoutout goes to Daisuke Ishiwatari for making some of the best rock VGM ever. Guilty Gear XX is still a favorite of mine, and I hope to be able to listen to Blazblue in short order.

Yoko Shimamura should seriously be on this list.. her work on SF2 is timeless (Ken and Guile's themes are so good), not to mention her amazing work on Parasite Eve, Legend of Mana and Kingdom Hearts. Really looking forward to seeing what she comes up with during this year for The 3rd Birthday, The Last Ranker and Final Fantasy XIII Versus.

Especially looking forward to her Final Fantasy XIII Versus work.

& yeah, it's a crime she isn't on this list, though i can think of a number of composers who should be.

Yeah, it's a real horrible list. I lean too much towards Japanese VGM composers especially JRPG music composers, and my knowledge of Western VGM is non-existent.

Looking back on this thread, I doubt any poll would be sufficient. There's simply too many good composers to choose from. Now ranking them, who knows. I should have made a better OP.
