Oprainfall Origins: Final Fantasy IX

The Oprainfall staff continues it's series of how they became the gamers they are today.

Oprainfall writes: "There is something organic in listening to Final Fantasy IX’s magnificent score. It breathes naturally and instills a sense of realism to characters, settings, and events that can all be simply described on paper. But this is a “video game”, an interactive experience designed to entertain and implement varying game elements, all of which become a fully controlled interactive media. But in taking a listen to Final Fantasy IX’s 100+ soundtrack before writing this Origins piece, the game simply becomes more than that in definition. The written story of this Final Fantasy is forever locked in my memory as a part of who I am, and its music evokes the story’s language in a game where no characters have a voice of their own."
