I remember the first time I saw FFII over at a friend's house. I had never experienced an RPG before, and the game seemed so huge! And long! And as he told me about the story, I knew I needed to get my hands on this game.

Honestly, I don't remember much of the storyline now (which means it's time to play again!), but what I do remember is the music! The creators of this game did such a fantastic job crafting the perfect video game music. The music fits so well, causing feelings of victory, trepidation, joy, sadness and everything in between. I love going back and listening to it even now!

(On a side note, I hate the numbering system between the Japanese versions and the American versions! It confuses me to no end!)

My ring-tone is the battle theme.

I seriously suggested that we name our first born son Cecil.

That's so rad!

Just use the japanese numbering! They're almost all worth playing.

I loooooove FF4. Watch Out For Fireballs! is doing a music episode. If you have some thoughts about the music, specific songs, and such, lay'em on us! http://duckfeed.tv/contact/

But I grew up with the American numbering lol!

I did too but then I went and found the in between games. If they were all shit, I'd be fine pretending they didn't exist but FF3 and 5 are both pretty good.

Like Adym I got confused with the numbering myself, but have come to later accept it as you can't get the right information on Wikipedia without knowing the right game. That and other game sites, so it sort of makes sense to learn it.

And the other games exist and are good, which helps.

@Tungsten that's a good idea for a boys name, if you make it happen ill give you a special trophy "Named Son Cecil" or some such. :D

Adym, if you liked the music from FF4 I suggest you check out http://ff4.ocremix.org/. I'm pretty sure ocremix has been mentioned on this site before, but it's basically a bunch of musicians who love video game music. They made a full album dedicated to FF4. I especially like the track "The Skies Hold No Angels for Us".

Thats a great OCRemix album. My only beef is that its not tagged properly and really hard to manage. If you can fix that, its a great set of songs from the game!

That's sweet, I'll have to check it out!
