Kaori Aso - “Resistance Line”
I like video games, and when those video games have moving stories, and even more so, moving music, it’s hard for those pieces not to move me in some way. This gem comes from the opening to the second disc of Wild Arms 2, one of my favorite RPGs of all time, and by far a tough contender for the best in the series. I think the video that goes along with the opening definitely helps sell the song, and I won’t go into any spoilers, but while the main character isn’t the focus of the sequence, or the music, I definitely get a feel for his lonesome nature, as well as for all the people he’s fighting for and those fighting with him. Yeah, cheesy I know, and I’m not really a fighter, but I do fight for the things that matter to me. Even if there’s no hope of winning.
