POST TO ENTER! Meet Uematsu! Win VGM! (July 29th deadline!)

Recommended Posts

When I was a little kid, I remember playing Final Fantasy on the GBA for the first time. What kept me playing that game was not just the story or gameplay, but instead, it was the music that made me love it so much. I would bring the game wherever I went, and blare the music next to my ear continuously until it was stuck in my head for over a month. When I finally found out that Nobuo Uematsu composed the music for Final Fantasy, I immediately saw him as my idol. Thank you, Nobuo-san, for giving the world your talent. :)

My first final fantasy was FF6 (FF3a). I was deeply moved by the story and the indispensable soundtrack. Since then I have played through FF7, FF8, and working on FFX. I have watched entire replay of FF1 & FF5 & working on FF9. Nobuo Uematsu inspires me not only to play the games, but also to create electronic music.

I'm a big fan of Uematsu-san's work and I would be a great and distinguished honor to meet the man, the myth, the legend.

I love his work with the Final Fantasy series. Wanted to go to a Dear Friends - Music from Final Fantasy concert but never got a chance to. Instead, I had a friend get me one of the programs you got at the concert. :)

Uematsu truly is a man worthy of the praise he's been given. This is a once in a lifetime chance for any video game music fan.

I don't think it was even possible to grow up with a Super Nintendo and not be a fan of Nobuo Uematsu. Stupendous music.

So true! The Super Nintendo was the very first system I owned; upon playing them, I instantly fell in love with classics such as Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy VI, and Super Mario RPG, and a very large part of why I love them so is without a doubt because of Uematsu-san's inspirational compositions.

I'm a Final Fantasy fan, and a Nobuo Uematsu fan to the very end! I don't know how I'll afford it, but I will be at the Los Angeles concert, whether I win this or not!

Liked 'im. I've actually got a friend who is part of the chorus and I'd really like to get to see her when she performs. This would be awesome! Count me in. :)

So all I have to do is post right here? Right here? Say, how about over there? No? Right here? Okay!

Man, if I win, I don't know what in the world I'd do. I'd feel a bit overwhelmed... Mr. Uematsu is a legend.

No, I don't want to think about it unless I actually won. Good luck to the all!

A chance to meet my favorite composer? Why would I pass that up?

Uematsu is easily one of my favorite composers ever. (Though given that there's also a link to follow his Twitter, I sort of wish he had a second account with English-translated tweets like Kojima-san.)

I agree. Uematsu is one of the greatest Musical Minds in the East. Good thing he will be in the west for a minute!

POSTED!

Good luck to all.
