Uetmasu (whom several have already listed), but I actually prefer Yasunori Mitsuda over him.


Yeah, Uematsu is arguably the best composer, but Mitsuda is my favorite.

Not just Japan. The East, no contest. ^^


BTW, King's Bounty: The Legend has some amazing tracks. :p

Japan has more catchy music. Western is more ambient. I prefer the catchy music.

Japan by far. Jeremy Seoule is the only composer that is in the same league as about 40% of Japan's videogame music.

I think Uematsu is a fantastic composer, but Mitsuda and Koshiro are easily a league above him.

No disrespect to him, but its like comparing Bach to Beethoven.

Japan. Every piece of Pokemon music is decent to listen to.

because we got a bunch of weebs in here


Why does there always have to some moron that shows up in any thread that has something to do with japan and go "herp derp weaboo"


Well, there are a lot of weeaboos on Gamefaqs, but he's probably just being defensive. It's kinda like how in my the area, there are a lot of hipsters, especially at any local music joints. So if people are talking about music at one of these places, it's pretty common for someone to accuse everyone of being hipsters, rightfully or wrongly.

In a way, if someone disagrees with another person's opinion, it's sometimes easier to just attack the person instead of the opinion. Instead of criticizing Japanese music, it's easier to just call everyone weeaboos.

Yea, I agree. Some of my favorite Western soundtracks (DE:HR for example) are more ambient than catchy, so I'd have a hard time humming the tunes. But when I'm in the game, it does an excellent job putting me into the setting, mood, and tone.

I'm more likely to hum the LOZ theme, but more likely to listen to the SimCity 4 soundtrack when studying/working.

The statement below is true.
The statement above is false.

I find that Western game music tends to be either generic rock/metal music or generic orchestral/cinematic music. Japanese game music tends to be more diverse and eclectic.
