I know one of my favourite musicians and producers, Terry Taylor, who has had a long and respectable career, did some game soundtrack work to great acclaim.
"...Taylor went on to score two more video games for TenNapel, 1998's Skullmonkeys and 1999's Boombots. Both games were created for Sony's PlayStation video game console. The best known track from Skullmonkeys is the "Li'l Bonus Room" track, regarded by many in the video game industry as the single funniest track ever written for a video game."

I'm glad people are starting to put more work into game soundtracks. For a long time they were mostly droll and repetitive.
