Of all the final fantasy games he picked ff xiii? Sure it had some decent tunes and few great ones. But compared to other entries in the series, especially 6, 7, 8 and 9, the soundtrack is not that great. Personally number 9 has a special place in my heart... And when speaking about video game scores i feel that also chrono trigger and metal gear solid series needs to be mentioned.

No mention of Ni No Kuni's overworld theme? It's one of the main reasons why I invested myself in collecting all the monsters. Such a beautiful tune, made grinding a joy!

And Child of Light?
