Liner Notes X: The battle-hardened themes of Final Fantasy

(Editor’s note: From Grandia to Lost Odyssey, everyone’s got at least one videogame tune stuck in their heads. Enter Liner Notes: a Pixelitis feature in which our writers discuss their favorite videogame music.)

"Although the 3DS’ Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy has been out for a good five months in North America, I’ve only started playing it now. And boy is it a nostalgia trip.

As I blasted through the game’s timeline of thirteen Final Fantasy titles, memories of my wonderful times with the Final Fantasy series permeated my mind. Nobuo Uematsu’s (and many other’s) work on the series is such an integral part to the Final Fantasy experience. Going along with that is its penchant for amazing battle music.

Great-sounding battle music is integral to any JRPG. You’re going to be engaging in countless battles throughout the game, so the tune you’ll be forced to listen to better be enjoyable. Thankfully in Final Fantasy‘s case, the battle themes never disappoint."
