Hahaha it should come to no surprise that I Pick Final Fantasy 9. The intro music alone gets me everytime :P

Also I quite liked suikoden 2 and wildarms music.

Persona 4 duh

Final Fantasy IX is a masterpiece, and only bested by Final Fantasy X as my favourite game of all time, and favourite OST of all time, lol.

So yeah, my answer: Final Fantasy X, followed closely by Final Fantasy IX, seriously, if Square Enix could make a game up to these standards, I'd pay 10x the price for the game.

There isnt really a "best" soundtrack for JRPGs. There are so many fantastic songs from so many different games. Its too hard to say that one game has a better OST than another.

One thing I think we can all agree on - Nobuo Uematsu is by far the greatest composer in the industry and will probably never be topped. His work on the Final Fantasy series is 2nd to none. The soundtracks for VI, VII and IX for me are beyond anything else.
