It doesn't get much bigger than this. YOU can win the opportunity to meet Nobuo Uematsu OR some amazing Final Fantasy music autographed by the man himself, courtesy AWR Music & Distant Worlds!

We recommend to LIKE ALL 3 of the Facebook pages of the folks putting together this contest, including Uematsu-san's official page:


Anything you want, just make it about Final Fantasy, Nobuo Uematsu, Distant Worlds, OC ReMix, or the fact that you're in it to win it!

Undoubtedly the best games composer of all time! His music contributed so much to the atmosphere and emotion of Final Fantasy VII and VIII which are still up there as the best RPGs ever. We should also give credit to the fact that he produced such good tunes using the simple chips of the NES/SNES era, though it's great to hear them getting a full orchestral treatment due to their popularity. It's testament to how good his tunes are that hundreds of hours later, you'll still hum along to the classics whilst you play!

Sign me up! :grin:

Uematsu got me started, OCremix kept me going, now I'm into all sorts of music that many people don't realize exists or that they pass over!

This reminds me, I need to check for the next torrent of OC remixes!

The chances are small, but I don't care! I would be quite the happy gentleman if I ever had the chance to meet the legend himself!

When I was reading the post on FB, a bunch of Distant Worlds music and FF tracks (mainly 8 for some reason) kept playing in my media player until I closed the window. It was awesome, since that music is epic.

Mr. Uematsu is the reason I started to appreciate video game music as much as I do. Since then, I've come to enjoy the work of many other composers, but his work will always stand out as being the first I saw as a video game -soundtrack-, and not merely something playing in the background of a video game.

This music drastically changed my life. I put his music in my senior recital at a classical conservatory!

I was so sad when I couldn't make it to NYC Distant Worlds this past spring. I would have loved to hear Gilgamesh battle theme in person! I am a visual artist and not a musician; nevertheless, Nobuo Uematsu's music has been a significant influence in what I do.

Shawn from Texas says, "This is easier than the last scratch-off game I tried, but still not the easiest contest that I have entered."

The score for Final Fantasy 7 still moves me to this day, his arrangements really touch my soul. And the fact that he is cool enough to make heavy metal arrangements of his compositions just makes him that much more awesome!

His PS1 Final Fantasy scores pretty much define my childhood. I always tear up every time I hear the world map song from FF7. It's really bizarre to believe that once upon a time the only thing that mattered in my world was his music. I didn't even really know of any other musicians until I was like, 8 or 10.

So if I ever met Uematsu I'd probably cream my pants.

Nobuo rules!

I used to think air was free, then I bought a bag of chips.
