What a sad Final Fantasy scene this was... Such powerful emotion, and good story telling. This scene will forever be one of the greatest moments in video gaming history. This is my take on Aerith's (Aeris') Theme from Final Fantasy VII, for the Sony Playstation.

It is truly...

The saddest moment in gaming history. I think this song, used at that precise event, was what solidified Final Fantasy 7 as the greatest JRPG ever made.

But sadly, games are losing their soundtracks. The songs just don't come as epic as they used to. The soundtrack itself is slowly becoming an accessory to games, rather than a natural piece of the metagame used expertly to capture the narrative and set the mood. Which is beyond me, because soundtracks are 90% of the reason games become legendary in the first place. Without epic music to set an epic mood, you're left with crap.

I know what you mean, game music is losing the quality it once had and moving towards the "hollywood" sound. Not a trend I agree with at all. This was definitely an epic time in gaming and game music. I'm glad you enjoyed my remake. Cheers!

Thank You

This song is beautiful
Final Fantasy is beautiful
Fuck all the people saying games are crap.
THIS IS OUR AGE!
YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND GAMES!
The emotions that they express.
Did you know when YOU ARE THE CHARACTER, you get to know people better?
When they die, you feel like you dying as well????
Final Fantasy 7----- too epic for words.
One of the best of all time.

Absolutely brilliant

Aerith's theme was one of my personal favourites in the game (and the Advent Children Movie).

Hearing this brings back so many good memories of playing Final Fantasy 7 with my friends, and well heck I'll definitely be going back to playing FF7 after hearing this wonderful version of the song.

And if I must be honest, this is almost BETTER than the original version. Bloody fantasic work.


Realmguys responds:

Wow, thank you for saying so. I love to re-visit this game just for this theme as well. I really appreciate the review and listen :)
