The lights are on
Whatever my personal feelings about Final Fantasy VI being a clearly superior game, FF VII is frequently pointed to as the most popular entry in Square Enix's successful RPG franchise. There are likely many reasons why so many gamers have such fond memories of this PS1 classic, but one of them is the story of Aeris (or, as those in the know call her, Aerith), a girl who sells flowers in the slums of Midgar and ends up being more than she seems. Now this unforgettable character has been immortalized in a genuinely awesome rap song.
The track, titled simply "Aerith," was created by Random (a.k.a. Mega Ran), a great hip-hop artist who I actually had the pleasure of meeting at E3 this year. Video games are a pretty consistent inspiration for and subject in his music, so I highly recommend checking him out.
You can hear "Aerith" below. If you like it, a full album of FF VIII inspired songs by Random will arriving January 31, 2011. In the mean time, you can purchase this track (as well as other music by him) on his Bandcamp page.
aw... I love Aerith.....
Cool song! And yes, I have also played both FF6 and 7 and I still find 7 more enjoyable in every way Phil. But oh well, we all have our own tastes.
I never used Aerith. I was so happy when she died.
FF VIII is by far the superior game
makes me want to listen to "Avalanche" by Still Remains
The beat is really bad. The temple of the ancient's theme does not fit at all. Lyrics are ok.
I agree, Phil, FF6 is easily the best FF.
I lol'd wtf "body wasnt the greatest skin wasnt the fairest"
but you have to admit that a game that is over a decade old is still being talked about
Well done on the video. I wish I had a PS1/PS2 to play through the FF's. Always wanted too.
