High Scores Volume #3: Final Fantasy X

Liam Lambert, GIZORAMA - "High Scores is a series wherein Liam analyses/gushes about his favourite modern videogame soundtracks. His musical “qualifications” include a GCSE in Music, an A level in Music Technology and a song he wrote about that pirate lady from Dragon Age II which will never be released on the internet.

Although game composers have become more prominent figures in recent years as the process of developing a game has become less of a secret to the public at large, very few of these composers have managed to reach legendary status. Marty O’Donnell and Jeremy Soule have lent their skills to huge franchises like Halo and The Elder Scrolls, but even they have yet to reach such God-like levels of fan adoration as one Nobuo Uematsu, lead composer for the better part of the gargantuan Final Fantasy series. Although he left Square Enix in 2004, he still composes regularly for games, and his most iconic soundtracks have left a lasting, unshakeable impression on the gaming world. One could even make the argument that Final Fantasy soundtracks have been significantly lacking in catchy anthems or infectious battle tunes in the ten years since Uematsu’s departure." (Culture, Final Fantasy X)
