Final Fantasy is one of the most historic and well known series in gaming. It has been innovative not only in game play and storytelling, but also in gaming soundtracks. The legendary composer for most of the series, Nobuo Uematsu, has performed this music in orchestras around the world. I will be highlighting two great tracks from each numbered game in the series to show the breadth of the series’ musical accomplishments.

Final Fantasy II, first released on December 17th of 1988, was the second game in the Final Fantasy series. The popularity of Final Fantasy was a stroke of luck for Square Soft, and the developers quickly used Final Fantasy’s success to stringboard on to the innovative series that we have today, starting with a sequel of sorts, Final Fantasy II. The game did not introduce many new features, although, the modifications it made to the gameplay as well as the technological innovations used put the series on the path to success.
