Favourite video game composers?

My favorites are David Wise and Frank Klepacki, they both compose some great music that is better than something you would hear on a video game.

Post your favorite(s) here on this topic.

I liked the last one, but the first two sounded like your average metal songs :|

I'd say my top 5 are:

David Wise (of DKC fame)
Grant Kirkhope (for his Banjo, DK64 and Viva Piñata stuff)
Mitsuo Terada, better known as Tsunku (つんく♂) [Rhythm Tengoku, Rhythm Heaven, Rhythm Heaven Fever]
Koji Kondo (for his work on Super Mario 64, SMB 1-3, SMW, Yoshi's Island)
Keiichi Suzuki (EarthBound)

Runner-ups would be Shogo Sakai (Mother 3) and Kenta Nagata (Mario Kart 64).
