Top 10 Soundtracks: ???

December 30, 2008

super-mario-bros-question-blockWith one article left and a many possible video games left to go, which could it be? There have been many possible considerations for this soundtrack, but there’s one that has stood the test of time. If you were thinking it was Final Fantasy… then you’re completely right. Mitsuda, Kondo, Shimomura, and Wise have all had their place and Uematsu has been absent other than through an assisting role. Now of course, which game is it?
