game: final fantasy iv



  • Prelude
  • Nobuo Uematsu
  • Final Fantasy IV OSV

The first things we gotta talk about are the prelude and the title screen. Obviously, the jump from the NES to the SNES was a big one. The crystal and the text gleam. There’s an effort to make the arpeggios sound like a harp, versus earlier versions, which mostly just sound like video game MIDIs.

Also, the counter-melody (which comes in at about 0:40) has been added, making it more like an actual musical composition instead of “oh yeah, I guess we need some music here?”

(ilu, Nobuo)

OK look I know the game has its flaws. I know a lot of you were expecting so much more of the story and didn’t get. Or at least hoping for more appearances of certain characters.

I’m also sad some things weren’t shown in the game.

But compared to what we got?????? All that stuff?????????????? I think I can forgive what wasn’t there. And this is only about the main story. The game is so much more than this, you guys should know this.

You can see how much effort was put in the game, how much love. A good video game for me is not only a good story. A good video game has a soundtrack that can make you understand what the characters are going through and what the situation means, characters that can make you love them as much as a real person, scenery that leaves you breathless and a story that keeps on your memory for a long time. A good video game gives you a real world with emotions and memories. And, in my opinion, this game has all of the best we could ever get.

You guys are only thinking about we didn’t get and forgetting about the wonderful stuff we got.
