Little bit something else; happy and energetic. Not much to explain about the game itself, it's a simple rhythm game where you walk across level made of vector lines of sorts. Simple game, and I don't really play it much but it's very lovely. The game loads to PS memory, so you can take the game disc out and put your own music CD in and let the game create levels based on the music.

This game was remastered for the TurboGraphx-16, and the music was redone as well. Best of all, if you own a Wii, you can buy and download the game to play. I'm still stuck on the last bad guy and his castle, but I'm confident I'll finish it soon!

The "village song" that you link to is at 5m36s.

I shall now destabilise your pristine, white wilderness with 16 bit epicness from a masterful turn based RPG.

Yes sir, I've always been astonished at the apex of creativity and refinement achieved in the 16 bit era of videogame music, unfortunately wheir the game is concerned I found it puzzling and difficult in my youth and abandoned it shortly, so that should warrant a revisit :D I also have a folder of rare SNES RPG's, many are their respective Super Famicom only converted into English, Front Mission is a very good mech suit/turn based RPG, I've heard Tactics Ogre and Romancing Sage 3 are also notable.

I've never been a fan of the Final Fantasy series, and I've never played one all the way through. The early ones struck me as just another bad JRPG, where the game revolves around various unkillable NPC "Mary Sue" characters, with unavoidable random mook fights to drain HP/Mana and add to your XP like some boring adding machine exercise. The later ones struck me as much the same thing, but with a lot more full motion video, glossy graphics, and yet more uninspired plot and precious smug characters insufficiently covered up with special effects. Pretty much like Star Wars Episode I, actually.

Then again, every so often a gem comes up. This is a bit from FF VI, where they put an opera in-game, and the player has to guide the female understudy through her lines. Get it right, and you have a surprisingly deft little number on your hands, complete with English translated lyrics that scan and rhyme properly.

When my friends were playing this game, I was busy doing work in the same room. It was always sounds of boring combat and "press the X button 46 times to get through this tedious NPC monologue". Then when this opera sequence came up, it made me pause in my work and pay attention, I can tell you.

Final Fantasy VI - Celes' Opera (SNES version): the actual singing starts at 3m47s

Although the first Lufia game has tons of amazing songs, I think Yasunori Shiono overdid himself in Lufia II.
