The amount of Classical music in this game is absurd. See if you can name them all without looking it up :3

Started Crystal Chronicles two weeks ago.

It's goofy and I lol every time someone starts talking.
Backtracking isn't that bad at all. Just master the double-dodge- roll
and you're set. ;)

IN FACT, I'm thankful there are hardly any random encounters. Most,
if not all, fights are completely optional. I'm burning right through this game
and expect it to be done within this week or early next week. (I have only 7 hours
in it right now)

Also, started up Phantasy Star 0 and Finishing up Rune Factory 3. Beat Rune Factory Frontier
Last week. Completely spent over 130+ hours on RFF, but man....Master Chef.

This may sound strange coming from an RPGFan writer, but I'd have no issue giving up ALL my gaming stuff tomorrow.  I'd be just fine with it.

Fragile Dreams (Wii). That game makes people cry. Not because the controls are awkward (we'll, there's that too...) but because the atmosphere (especially the feeling of loneliness) is so strong and the few people you meet during your travels truly make a difference.

Also, the thing about Fragile is that you pick up items that you can hear the final conversation-thoughts of the owner before they perished. A lot of it is sad.  The ending is....

RE Eradication?

Yes - for Adults who have better things to do than grind and enter a battle every X amount of Steps
No - for Children to taste what it was like for us when we were younger....and to keep em occupied.

That does it, I can't let this backlog get any larger.  Believe it or not, part of me is actually annoyed by Sony's welcome back PSN program.  As if I needed free games!  I can't even finish the games I paid money for.  Heck, I have a demo backlog...I have lots of demos I've downloaded intending to try out but I don't even have time for them.  Where did all the hours go...

I've decided to implement a policy where I won't buy a new game until I finish two games I own.  I'm not sure how I should count PSN/Android stuff in that, though, since they tend to be shorter.  Argh, whatever...

Seeing how Catherine is coming out soon I'd better get to work...

Don't lie to yourself, it'll creep up on ya on a boring day, and then....

Your wallet is missing...

My backlog is actually decreasing, not because I'm buying and playing games, because I'm selling them. WIN-Log if ya ask me. :3

Ooo those were great! I forgot about Shadow of the Colossus...amazing music that reminds me of Gundam Wing (;)). I started this topic really late at night and didn't put down other things I like, which crosses into anime music as well... which is when Composers take a bow to the masters of music of old in their compositions-arrangements. Below is a list of this: (There's a GREAT deal of them, but these are what popped into my head first)

- Death Smiles - Death Smiles OST: Hell's Emperor [Johann Sebastian Bach's "Toccata (no fugue) in D minor"]
- Let's Tap - Jupiter (Extreme Tap Edition) [Arrangement/Remix of Gustav Holst's "Jupiter, The Bringer of Jollity"]
- Let's Tap - I Got Rhythm (Tap Edition) [George Gershwin's "I Got Rhythm"]

Antonín Dvořák
- The Sky Crawlers: Innocent Aces Music - BGM (20) [""From the New World" Symphony, Movement 1"]
- Ninety-Nine Nights (N3) OST 02 - From the New World Molto Vivace ["From The New World" Movement 3] (Duel of the Fates? :3)

Antonio Vivaldi
- Ninety-Nine Nights (N3) OST 16 - The Four Seasons "Winter" Allegro [.....This track sucks so hard that I won't even tarnish Vivaldi's name relating it to this mess, so no link. Trust me.]
- Ninety Nine Nights Sountrack: The Four Seasons (eternal mix) [~SUMMER~] (Oh Man,when 7:25 hit, I couldn't stop laughing. Perfect sync, haha I will NEVER mess with birds again)

If you're interested in more of em, I'll post em later :3

I burn through Video Game Soundtracks whenever I get my hands on one, hoping to find something that would peek my interest or amaze me. It's a hit or miss, but there are times when I get a good amount of tracks that I can indulge myself in that are wonderful to my ears. Usually the tracks I end up loving have at least one of these traits:

- Lyrical [Orchestration was awesome and Soprano's Line is reminiscent of that of Mozart's Der Hölle Rache kocht in meinem Herzen. Click for more info and comparison.
- Symphonic
- Exotic
- Exciting
- Bombastic
- Unusual
- Heroic [Just first 35 seconds, the rest is eh]
- Beautiful
- Heartwarming
- Dream-like
- Mysterious [Bulgarian voices: Mysterious ;)]
- Menacing
- Goofy
- Relaxing
- Complexity
- Wit

One characteristic that encapsulates me in complete bliss is the build up to a climatic end (Or middle) that explodes. A good composer to listen to that has music of this nature is Debussy. His "Afternoon of a Faun" and "Girl With the Flaxen Hair" are examples of buildup, one explosive while the latter a beautiful release. What's amazing about these pieces is there ability to build up to that climax, it's literally orgasmic in a vulgar way to describe it. BUT WAIT, VIDEO GAME.

A composer that totally captures my ears and check-boxes most of those characteristic above is Noriyuki Iwadare, Specifically talking about his Grandia I Soundtrack.

Grandia - Ghost Ship

In regards to the buildup, his "Ghost Ship" is a constant push and pull to a finale. It's funny now that I think about it, because when I first played this game and heard this track, I hated it. It sounded uninteresting to me, granted I was probably 14 or 15 when I first played the game. 7-8 years later I hear it again, and it ended up being my favorite track from Iwadare's repertoire. His composing and orchestration was just on point in this track, I even love his devil's laugh insert [0:38] on the violin during the beginning of this track. This piece kind of bears a resemblance to a symphonic poem...

What are your likes in Video Game Music?
