6. The Legend of Zelda, by Koji Kondo
A lush fantasy and a key title for Nintendo, the various incarnations of The Legend of Zelda have become classics. The music from this game has become so popular that it's been expanded and developed into a four-movement orchestral symphony called 'Symphony of the Godesses'. Composer Koji Kondo has worked for Nintendo since 1986 and is the mastermind behind many of their most famous titles.
