I love Final Fantasy, and i loved Final Fantasy XIII. One of the biggest reasons i love the Final Fantasy series is for it's amazing music. My favorite music from the series is pretty much everything in FFXIII but one tune stuck out in particular while in Oerba. It was just so mesmerizing. I almost forgot to breath when i first heard it. So what's your favorite? Here's mine.

When it comes to FF, just about every piece I hear is golden. Of course, there are several I prefer over others though, such as Tifa's theme from FFVII, One winged Angel, the music from the final boss battle in FF8, and post catacylsm theme music from FFVI. OF all the songs though, I believe the one that made the greatest IMPRESSION, though it is not my favorite, would be FFX's music during the "final" boss battle. Very big change from the gentle and melodious music present in the rest of the game.

I don't really have a favourite. It seems like my favourites lie within whichever final fantasy (post 7 when Square started brining in the orchestra) I'm playing at the time.

So right now that's FFXIII.

There's too many in my eyes a few come to mind like Sephiroths Theme, and Jenova LIFE music (last Jenova battle) in FF8 I think Ultimecia's battle music is also great, and in FF9 at the start when your doin the play and sword fighting that other character like Mexican music thats really catchy that one. but there's too many for me

played when Zidane is all depressed about his roots and his friends try to get him to snap out of it(would have been better without the dumb Zidane and Dagger/Garnet crap that plagued the game, but espcially here, it is my favorite FF, but that "romance" was cringe-worthy

I don't care if it's not from FF. It's the best song ever.

There are no enough words that expresses the awesomeness of this song.
Final Fantasy XI, The Sanctuary of Zi'Tah
An area of the Rise of Zilart Expansion.

Never played FFXI, but I have to say, that is beautiful. There's just something about it that reminds of the old RPGs of the past. You know, just like an overall reminder of the RPGs we all used to love and adore. Personally, I find it a very nostalgic song.

I'm glad that you too find it to be beautiful. Sometimes in the game I just go to that particular zone and just kick back and relax. Nobue Uematsu is just brilliant.




This is the zone where the song plays. Misty Foggy forest, with light that pierce through tall trees with unseen peaks, gives a mysterious and relaxation sensation to the place.

I remembered one of my favorite's from Final Fantasy X. The battle with Kimahri's brothers on Mount Gagazet. It just went so perfect with the fight.

My all time Favorite <3

For me... this define FFVII by all meaning, give me the same feelings I felt when I played FFVII for the first time 1997... can't believe it have been 13 years already, I guess I am getting older :(

[QUOTE="jfkgoblue, post: 5076040]guess you hated FFXIII then[/QUOTE]

I was very disappointed with FFXIII victory cutscenes.

It just felt interrupted when the scoreboard comes up during the victory pose and even the victory pose itself is terrible lol.

I felt the same with FFIX even though it had the fanfare. The victory poses are kinda weak and short.

FFVIII has the best victory cutscenes in my opinion but I haven't played FFX or FFXII

They're all Epic. That's all I have to say. FFX is my favourite in terms of the entire soundtrack but there are amazing pieces through-out the series. Aeriths Theme, and One-Winged Angel are awesome =P Oh Cosmo Canyon too.

I love FFX's soundtrack, but I do agree that the battle music is not as good as what you'll find in the other games. I wouldn't say it was "awful" though. lol

It starts off kind of boring, but then gets better as it goes on IMO.

I don't know what it is, but I have always hated that theme... also disliked the organ Victory Fanfare remix

Theres just too much to post!

FF7 = Sandy Badlands, Great Warrior, Interrupted By Fireworks (my favourite)
FF10 = The Prelude, Bisaido Island (that's the japanese name), Wandering Flame (My favourite)
FF13 = Saber's Edge.

I will have to take some pics of my FF7 OST when I get home. It has crazy Japanese artwork which is really cool.
