Posted on October 17, 2013, Devin Connors Video: Two Fantastic Takes On Final Fantasy 8 Themes
It seems like only yesterday that we were all running around in glorious 480i, hack-blasting away with 255 percent accurate Gunblades in Final Fantasy 8. FF8 came out in North America 14 years ago last month, but Father Time cannot stop the fan tribute train from rolling on to infinity (and BEYOND!)
Seriously though, we’ve come across two new, fantastic fan tributes to the music of Final Fantasy 8. First up: Edoardo Talenti, and eight of his clones (or maybe they’re an octuplet set?) bringing the Final Fantasy 8 battle theme to life through acoustic guitar and keyboard.
If Acapella is more your speed, then “Smooth McGroove” (and his slightly-freaked-out-looking cat) is here to seduce your ears with his mouth and hands rendition of The Man With the Machine Gun.
Which of the two videos do you like the best (you can say both, of course). Also, feel free to drop your own favorite game music rendition in the comments — Final Fantasy 8 or otherwise.
