A beautiful Chrono Trigger melody.
I think most people associate video game music with being epic, triumphant or suspenseful. While Chrono Trigger does capture these feelings at the right points in the story, there is a lingering sense of melancholy which stands out across the entire score. You can’t escape the inevitability of whatever perils lie ahead.
It’s almost laughable that a video game that I first played 17 years ago has an emotional effect on my adult self.
