Child of Light theme always sounded like Blazing Saddles music to me.

Other than the ones already mentioned, Assassin's Creed 3 has two of my favourite menu themes (for some reason I seem to recall it plays two, I'm not sure if that's true though).

Valiant Hearts would top my list. My wife isn't a big gamer, but when she went and purchased the soundtrack to that after hearing it.

No halo on a list about themes is definitely odd for me haha

Also! Speaking of Halo, I made this video of the Dragon Age Inquisition theme on a Halo 3 clip I put together :D

Well it's not on any xbox console, but the theme from Civilization IV is the first and only video game song to win a Grammy (for best composition). It will forever be my favorite. Great list here though.

Another reason why Decap Attack needs a remake:

Nothing comes close to this soundtrack for awesomeness.

Oh also, the Origins theme is way better than the Inquisition one:

i'm glad Vigil got included, a tough choice between that and ME2 suicide mission.
not appearing in the list, as someone mentioned earlier, the themes of Duke Nukem forever and Castlevania:lords of shadows deserved a spot

No Halo mention at all is blasphemy.

The Splinter Cell Chaos Theory menu music is also excellent.
