As the title states,I'd like some recommendations from you guys mainly because I need new music in my Ipod and I want to hear new stuff. 
Anime intro's / outro's are fine too.
*cough*Videos would help *cough*

@Faint:
I have never heard of Junya or Tetsuya. What games did they compose for?

I think the Bayonetta soundtrack is pretty kickass. You should give it a try at least.

the Bubble Bobble theme.  just play it over and over and over...

I've been loving the ODST soundtrack lately, the smooth jazz influence really elevates ODST above the other Halo soundtracks for me.  I love every piece of music that plays when you're in the city by yourself and they hold up to listening to it on my iPod.

Well, if you can stomach J-Pop, the Persona 4 soundtrack is fantastic. So are the female tracks from the Persona 3 Portable soundtrack (though TC I'm betting you already knew that based on your pic).  Love these opening chords in this Persona 4 track. Also, TC I assume you know this song from P3P but I really dig it, super bouncy bass, classic pop with fantastic Engrish gibberish on top. Perfect!
   
My all time fave video game albums are.... 
 
Shadow of the Colossus - moody and sombre, violent and epic, quick and beautiful; this album runs the gamut. This song is played over the credits and is one of the more uplifting and hypnotic pieces. 

Shatter - the game is a modern day re imagining of Arkanoid-like games. Similarly, the soundtrack takes the 8 bit feel of your fave tunes and turns them into modern day techno and rock anthems. Here is a taste of it. The entire soundtrack is phenomenal and was without a doubt my favourite album of 2009.
 
Bionic Commando Rearmed - Similar to Shatter, this game's soundtrack mixes 8 bit with heavy beats. Here's the title theme, but really it's all fantastic. 
 
Katamari Damacy/We Love Katamari - both these games had extremely eclectic sountracks and no single song could justifiable give you an idea of what it all sounds like. Some tracks I love, others despise. Regardless, both game OSTs are among my favourites. Here's the super catchy j-pop anthem from the first game. And here is my fave from the sequel. 
 
Chrono Cross - An extremely rich and diverse soundtrack from the PSOne era. This song instantly turned me into a fan of the game. Both the game and the soundtrack should not be missed. Yasunori Mitsuda's magnum opus!
 
Final Fantasy, in general, has been host to countless classic video game tunes. While I just about hated Final Fantasy XIII, the soundtrack is a masterpiece. From the manic, slow burning build of the sub-boss music to the arthritic-forming piano 8th notes of the opening level, the soundtrack remains beautiful.  
Of course, Nobuo Uematsu's life work of pre-XII Final Fantasy is even more impressive. Be it Terra's, Laguna's or Vivi's theme. And those aren't even my faves!! 
  
Sonic 1, 2 and 3. Really, these are all classics and I don't think I need to describe them. 
 
I could keep going, but really, TC, it'd be interesting to hear what type of music you listen to, or what you had in mind. If you want more, lemme know! I can be super specific.

I really enjoy the No More Heroes soundtrack, some great stuff on there.

#21 Posted by RecSpec (3949 posts) -

Gitaroo Man is my favorite gaming soundtrack. Sample
Also a lot of stuff from Lumines is awesome. Sample
Currently stuck in my head is this song from Professor Layton and the Unwound Future.
A lot of the Layton music is pretty good to be quite honest.

#22 Posted by Lemoncookie01 (1642 posts) -
@RecSpec: That Professor Layton song is pretty good.
#23 Posted by Wildfire570 (719 posts) -

Wipeout 2097 soundtrack, its essentially orgasmic electronic bliss.

#24 Posted by RainVillain (483 posts) -
@Lemoncookie01: dude(tte?), I absolutely love the Street Fighter IV, vanilla and Super, Soundtracks a lot. Hard to pick a fave, though Makoto's and Blanka's are up there.  
I main Jury btw :D 
 
Just listened to that second song you posted from No More Heroes.... totally awesome. Is that from nmh1 or 2? I've been meaning to play those games and that tune might have pushed me over the edge to check it out! 
 
Other cool tunes you might wanna check out: 
 
Einhander -- Bloody Battle -- works as an ideal time capsule of 90s electronica. 
 
Red Dead Redemption -- Triggernometry -- badass song from the conclusion of my fave game of 2010 
 
Last Ninja 2 -- Central Park -- if you're willing to go really retro, a classic from the motherfuckin C64!!! 
  
Persona 1 (PSP) -- School Days -- To continue the J-pop trend. Wasn't a big fan of the game but the OST was ace.
#25 Posted by StarFoxA (5165 posts) -

I highly suggest the soundtracks for Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Shatter, VVVVVV, and the radiangames.

Thanks for the help guys.Almost every single song got added.

#32 Posted by DrPockets000 (2859 posts) -

The Alan Wake soundtrack is fantastically haunting and immersive.  The mix of dread and melancholy is awesome. 
 
There was another one I was going to add, but I forgot.  I'll add it when I remember.

#33 Posted by cabelhigh (247 posts) -

I know someone mentioned the first one, but Mass Effect 2 has a phenomenal soundtrack from top to bottom. Here' s a choice piece from one of the clubs, Lower Afterlife.

Heres a quote from the comments...
 
"I finished NHK ni Youkoso yesterday, and woke up with this song in my head.

went on my pc and looked it up on youtube.

And here I am, 2:30 at night, still listening.

Fuck you NHK. :("

Old fogey mode:  

   
Zuntata, the inhouse sound team at Taito. You may have heard their work in Bubble Bobble, the Darius Series, or more recently, Space Invaders Infinity Gene. Above, my favourite track Daddy Mulk from The Ninja Warriors.
 
    
Something from SEGA always was blasting in the good old arcade days, be it Outrun, Afterburner, or DAYTONAAAAAAAA~. You might've heard some version of the above song this year in Bayonetta. 
 
Damn kids and their musics.

This. 
 
Also, I'd recommend The Megas. They're a rock band that play music based on the MegaMan 2 soundtrack.
