Now this is my dream job.

Although Harry Gregson-Williams got famous for a couple songs but they are pretty fantastic.

doctorstrange2638d ago

That would definitely be an awesome dream job

Greg Edmonson did a fantastic job with Uncharted 2's score...
I can't help but take another listen ;D

Mitsuda over the rest.

Uematsu, IMO, is overrated. Listen to the soundtrack from Chrono Trigger and Chrono Cross and bring tell me any FF game that has a better musical score.

I'm a huge fan of Mitsuda as well, but this is a work of greatness by Uematsu:

Uematsu is great too, but his songs can only set the mood.

But they don't create an atmosphere like Mitsuda's does.

Just play Xenogears, and you'll know what I mean. ^_^

Harry Gregson-Williams is brilliant for his work on the Metal Gear Solid series. I love Mitsuda Yoshinori for his brilliant work on Chrono Cross. It, put simply was brilliant. A couple of other brilliant composers are Naruke Michiko for her work on the Wild ARMs series since the PSone, and on the PS2. I also recognise the composers for the King's Field games on PSone and PS2; The company called Sound KIDs Corp. Their two composers Kouji Endou and Kaoru Kono deserve HUGE merit for their work. Some of the most brilliant music composition I've ever heard. The ending theme for King's Field 2 in North America is one of the best ending themes I've ever heard.

how are they not going to mention hans zimmer... the man did do the soundtrack for modern warfare 2. As well as many big blockbuster films. He is on the level of harry gregson williams.

Picking a favorite Nobuo Uematsu soundtrack is impossible, especially the middle Final Fantasy titles.

rCrysis2638d ago

Nobuo is the best man! His works at Square/Soft were the most beauteous music I've ever heard.

I hope he does another Game OST soon. I'm dying for newer works from him.

coolfool2637d ago

He is writing most of the tracks for that.

Such great music. I love FF and MGS music the most personally.
