Bullshit.

Actually he does. He's into really weird shit.

I however, am a complete sell out. I love commercialized music!!
1. Yasunori Mitsuda

The guy who composed the Donkey Kong music is also pretty good. So are the people who composed for Super Mario Galaxy.
Video Game music is alright. A bit limited. I'm more into jazz. The real kind. Not people that say "Oh I'm writing 'jazzy' music" They usually have no fucking clue what they are doing (SEE: CHANNEL CHANGER)

I like the Donkey Kong Country music though. And Earthbound. Final Fantasy has some cool tunez.
Michiko Naruke - Wild Arms series
Yasunori Mitsuda - Gamez
Ken Nakagawa - Atelier Iris

Then there's a bunch more like the Soul Calibur composer and some I can't even remember right now.
Now with context! (sort of, I'm only going to list one game for sanity purposes)
