Only the Final Fantasies with Nobou's music are REAL Final Fantasies.

Uematsu music is hard to rate as we all have our favourites. I love Aeriths Theme and To Zanarkand.

ahh Never played FFX but love the music. All his music is good though. It would be easier to make a top 10 OST's for him instead of single songs.

He's amazing at making you feel emotions through music.

Seriously it dosn't matter what type of list it is realting to Final Fantasy, FF7 always comes first despite other Final Fantasy games having one over it whatever the top list is about

In my opinion Liberi Fatali should of been number one. Hell Final Fantasy 8s music in general is amazing.

FF8 doesn't get enough recognition for its music. There's some really outstanding stuff in 7 that can't be topped, but 8 is pretty consistently good and the quality of the sound is quite a bit better in 8 as well. Hell, I think the ending theme was probably my favorite for about a decade.

FFVIII's entire OST was pretty damn awesome. What's been on my mind the past few days is "The Landing". The game still looks and feels great after all these years.

I like Chrono Triggers sound track over FF7.

edit: which Nobou Uematsu also made if I'm correct.

Kgatn2Madre  +   574d ago
Got to agree with that. Almost all of them are masterpieces.
Quicktopick  +   574d ago

http://www.youtube.com/watc...
that ending yeah!!!
killbillvolume12  +   574d ago
To Zanarkard still makes me so sad. Love the song really emotional.
Quicktopick  +   574d ago
i feel yah bro... same here
Kgatn2Madre  +   574d ago
Battle with gilgamesh. FFV main theme. Matoyas Cave. And many more. This guy its a genius.
dumahim  +   574d ago
If you love the FF music, make every effort to go see Distant Worlds. I drove to Chicago a couple years ago and it was awesome. Uematsu's music is great in the games, but even better when orchestrated.

I went to Distant Worlds a few years ago, and there was absolutely nothing from Final Fantasy, nor was there any Chrono, MGS and pretty much any other game with awesome music. It was pretty disappointing. Video Games Live was a vastly better experience. There were 3 songs from FF, plus KH and a bunch of other awesome games music.
dumahim  +   574d ago
Distant Worlds is ONLY Final Fantasy music. The full name is "Distant Worlds: Music from Final Fantasy." You may be thinking of a different video game orchestra series.
Finalfantasykid  +   574d ago
Ah you are correct. The concert I was thinking of was Play! a video game symphony http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...

FFX
Lost Odyssey
The Last Story

Three of my favorite soundtracks ever and three of my fav theme songs ever. The music is flat out beautiful, emotional, inspiring, and it truly does stir the soul. This man is one of the most brilliant composers ever rivaling the classical greats.
