How Chrono Trigger Almost Killed its Composer

Chrono Trigger is quite simply one of the finest games ever made and has received more positive reviews and accolades from critics than a Shoreshank redemption sequel starring the ghost of Heath Ledger. One aspect of the game that has been repeatedly noted by both fans and critics is the soundtrack, which is so iconic and so memorable that it actually has its own Wikipedia page which scientists assert is as popular as something can possible be. But did you know that the two hours of music we got out of the game literally almost killed the guy tasked with creating it? (Chrono Trigger , Industry, Retro)

this is the reason why "gamers" need to be more informative about the details of game development. It's not easy task, but the attitude of gamers simply doesn't show they appreciate knowing the facts. They buy games to play and that's as far as it goes. Internet has become larger than ever, but they just spend most of their times looking at useless information.

Yet at the same time devs don't have and shouldn't be given carte blanche in what they do. Nevermind that this is about a music composer in regards to an iconic title.

If someone goes through hell for something that turns out to be bad, that person has my sympathies, but I'm still going to call crap crap.

it's not a matter of sympathizing for the people involved, but it's about recognizing the developers behind the game. People just think about the damn publisher. "Oh, it's a Capcom game?" or "it's resident evil 8, cool!" Like who gives a fcuk about Kamiya or Mikami type of attitude. Gamers do not think that's important to know, while they give a fcuk about other "developers."

tbh this was already well known if you just looked up Yausnori Mitsuda (amazing composer). I was surprised by his work in Kid Icarus Uprising

I love the music from Yasunori Mitsuda and I love the music from Nobuo Uematsu. If I had to choose I would go with Yasunori Mitsuda his music was awsome on Chrono Trigger, Chrono Cross and Xenogears when you hear his music you can feel the emotion he puts behind the music.
