I think the Final Fantasy series have some of the best video game music out there, though I might be a tad biased because I grew up listening to their soundtracks.
I adore Final Fantasy VII, not only because of the characters, though damn Sephiroth was one badass motherfucker and Cloud was just a poster boy of emokid. Okay, he was also quite the sarcastic shithead sometimes.
They also have awesome music – there’s the epic and dramatic One Winged Angel, the beautiful Aerith’s theme that reminds me of her death (ooh look spoilers), and of course, the iconic main theme that all FF7 players would remember.
Sometimes I forget about the more lighthearted themes, but here’s an adorable rendition of the Chocobo theme, those cute fluffy creatures which Cloud’s hair seems to resemble :D
