No Final Fantasy soundtrack is complete without a rousing overworld song. With that in mind…
What’s your favorite overworld music?
I’ll answer this question in two parts. First, my favorite music directly from the game as in unaltered from what you hear while you’re playing, and second, my favorite overworld theme orchestrated.
I have to go with Final Fantasy IV for my favorite theme in game.
FFIV was just ahead of its time and so proficient in numerous areas, not the least of which was music. It boasts the greatest number of good songs in its soundtrack (based on my opinion of course) that is to say, I like the majority of songs on its OST. While I might like the music from other games more, I like more of the music from Final Fantasy IV.
And Final Fantasy X takes the gold for my favorite orchestrated theme. It more than occasionally brings the tears, so I have to declare it the winner.
What’s your favorite overworld theme? As you can see mine doesn’t align with my favorite game (it actually took a bit for FFVII’s “Main Theme” to grow on me. I like it now, but wasn’t that fond of it when I first heard it). Does yours? Discussion party in the comments!
