Soundtracks for the Ages

Game soundtracks that tied games together

I was recently stuck in a Tim Horton's, with naught but my phone and some delicious buffalo chicken mac n' cheese to keep my ADD mind from exploding out of boredom. However, I knew I had a bit of saving grace encased in my Otterbox, the Squaresoft (now Square Enix) classic 'Chrono Trigger.' Just as I was about to enter back into that world that held a more wibbly-wobbly timeline than the good Doctor Who himself, I had a thought: I had no headphones. Now, 'Chrono Trigger' is one of those timeless games, an RPG that truly transcends gaming trends to earn its place amongst the classics, but being a decent human being that doesn't take incredible joy in bothering the strangers closest to him by using his cell phone as a boom box, I couldn't partake in the music that brings it all together in one glorious package. As much as I wanted to, I couldn't force every customer in that Timmy's to listen to Yasunori Mitsuda and Nobuo Uematsu's incredible soundtrack, and without that music, I couldn't bring myself to play an incomplete version of a game I loved.
