So we all agree Chrono Trigger is amazing, and we all agree that it’s music is also amazing. I have considered replaying it for review purposes, but something something backlog too big blah blah blah you heard it all before. So I did the next best thing and watched Chuggaaconroy’s lets play of it. I remember a time when the most subscribed lets player on Youtube actually made videos for the fun of it as opposed to making them to cash in on fads. Yes I know he only covered this game last year, but we are talking about a game about time travel so… okay fuck it, I was just feeling nostalgic… and spiteful.
The Final Fantasy series is to amazing video game music what Donald Trump is to the KKK; something celebrated. A series that extends to over 50 games and nearly every one of them has at least a decent soundtrack and many of them are exceptionally awesome. Thus far I’ve only had two Amazing VGM entries from this series, one from the beloved Final Fantasy VII and another from the not so beloved Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest. Today’s entry comes from the much less talked about Final Fantasy III, the original Famicom one to be precise.
Welcome to this week’s VGM. I have decided that I would go with something that is from a game especially nostalgic to me, Final Fantasy VII. Of course, I’m never one to go with the predictable tracks like “One Winged Angel” or “Aerith’s Theme” or even slightly less common but still talked about tracks like “Still More Fighting” and “The Great Warrior.” The first track that comes to mind when I think of Final Fantasy VII is either “Interrupted by Fireworks” (which I honestly find more beautiful and emotionally moving than “Aerith’s Theme”) or “Holding My Thoughts in My Heart.”
