(Editor’s note: From Alundra to Wild Arms, 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.)
"Given how Capcom’s first Breath of Fire on SNES served as the catalyst for my enjoyment of JRPGs and their music, its sequel could only make that flame grow all-the-more furiously.
And that it did. I flipped a lid when I discovered the existence of Breath of Fire II in an early ’96 issue of GamePro. I finally got it for my seventh birthday in March of that year and I was treated to a surprisingly dark story and a musical experience that still resonates with me to this day."
