The Best Composers in Gaming

You might think I’m being a bit dramatic here, but gaming is, by and large, more of an experience than a pastime. There’s so much that goes into making a game brilliant. While a title certainly has to have enjoyable gameplay in order to avoid being a flop, there’s so much more that goes into it. The writers pen compelling plots and craft interesting characters, the artists draw beautiful backdrops and breathe life into the characters, and the composers who set the mood with the perfect harmony. (Industry, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Agreed, Nobuo Uematsu has near unparallelled experience when it comes to writing video game scores and he shows his experience time and time again.
