Yasunori Mitsuda's music set the tone for so much of gaming in my youth: Chrono Trigger, Xenogears, Chrono Cross. His music is so good that I'll still go back and listen to soundtracks he did to games I don't even like any more! So this week on the Kotaku Mix Tape, We're devoting giving a hats off to a man who worked himself sick making some of the best game music out there.
Also, for any Chrono fans out there: Check out the Front Mission Gun Hazard soundtrack he did with Uematsu if you haven't. It's kind of fantastic.
