Any Final Fantasy game or Ico would get my nod in that regards.

Personally I couldn't give a rats ass who wins one of these awards.
Optimus Prime: I want you to go in that bag, and find my wallet.
Megatron: Which one is it?
Optimus Prime: It's the one that says Bad motherf**ker

Dragon Age and Bayonetta deserve an award for their stellar soundtracks.

I loved the Ass Creed II soundtrack. Especially the track that plays at the Auditore hideout. Damnnnn, that song is good.

I'd like to see one of the Hitman games get an award, specifically Hitman 2 which I still think is the best videogame soundtrack of all time. Jesper Kyd is the composer for the Hitman games. BTW, the guy who made a lot of Medal of Honor soundtracks, on PSX and PS2, as well as the original COD, Michael Giacchino, won a Golden Globe the other day for his soundtrack on Where The Wild Things Are, so congrats to him. :) I'd love one of the MGS games to win an award.

Additionally, the Assassins Creed 2 soundtrack was composed by Jesper Kyd, so you know, the guy's talented.

Personally, I think Shoji Meguro should get it, partially because i'm a big fan of digital devil saga and persona, but mainly because his music is pretty damned awesome.

I think Xenon 2: Megablast is long overdue an award for it's classic title sequence.
Do you want Chilli on that?
