I have loads of tunes made into RIngtones on my Iphone and Ghouls n Ghosts is my current tone :)

3rd & 4th Generation
1. Ghouls N Ghosts
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fkrf_7taDfw
2. Myth: History in the Making
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xLhxAnSJRWk
3. Flimbo's Quest
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZM8DxE5nt4U
And the list goes on ad infinitum :)

5th Generation
1. Suikoden - Into a World of Illusions
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1pJ25KSCHHk
2. Wild Arms - Into the Wilderness
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8dCJatdwroE
3. Vandal Hearts - Burning Sorrow
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kB9Ohl4h8EQ

6th Generation
1. Suikoden 3 - Exceeding Love
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fA_gDnwcdZ8
2. Silent Hill 2 - Theme of Laura
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6LB7LZZGpkw
3. Morrowind - Main Theme (this really got stuck in my head)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZWuNf4gxwuM

Current Gen
1. Nier - Hills of Radiant Wind
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CT3vT8Pkj3k
2. Dragon's Dogma - A Thing Clad in White Scales (Arch Hydra Battle)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yNmCMwkU6b0
3. Saint's Row The Third -Power (by Kanye West). Now I must explain that I hate Kanye West and Rap music as a rule but the section of this game where the song kicks in (defending your main base for a mass attack by bad guys) fits absolutely perfectly and really got my adrenaline going resulting in one of my all time favourite moments in gaming history.

Usually I'd just fill a list like this with Tekken 2 music but I'll list three more of my favourites instead (of which there are many!):

Force Your Way (Final Fantasy VIII boss theme)
London Stage (Capcom Vs SNK 2)
Fighting in the Street (Streets of Rage Remake version)
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

my vg playlist stands at around 150 tracks, no way I could narrow it to 3 :D

'Above The Canopy' on the Dark Void soundtrack is arguably one of the best pieces of music from any kind of media.

Final Fantasy VII - Those who Fight
Tales of the Abyss - The Meaning of Birth
Golden Sun - Felix's Battle Theme.
I asked for orange. It gave me lemon lime!
