Real Life Should Have JRPG Victory Music

JRPG victory music is one of the best types of video game music. Every time you emerge from battle victorious, a familiar, stirring theme plays. I want that music to play in my everyday life.

This post originally ran on 4/26/2012. Five years later, I’ve bumped it up and made a few edits, because Persona 5 really needed to be on here.

Why can’t my every accomplishment be accompanied by victorious fanfare? I don’t know. I think I’m going to start carrying around a little set of speakers with me so that gaming’s best victory anthems will underscore my everyday accomplishments.
