Games It's already been out for iOS for a while, but today, Android users can join in on this piece of gaming history as well. Chrono Trigger, arguably one of the best - if not the best - games ever made has just been released for Android. Whether you ascribe to that position or not, this 1995 SNES classic from Square was revolutionary in many ways (oh the music...), and you owe it to yourself to give it a go. It's EUR 7.99, which isn't cheap, but trust me: it's worth it. My Nexus 7 just became even more useful.

The Music is indeed awesome, but the linked song is IMHO a bad example. Here a few of the best songs of the game:

You're right - there's so much great music in there. I was looking through my iTunes playlist for Chrono Trigger and just couldn't decide - so I did a random pick ;) .

I looked at my Videogame Music Ranking:

I listen to the ReMixes from ocremix.org and the original SPC files ripped from the ROM. ;)

Chrono Trigger is the game with the most remixes on ocremix.org (103 remixes). FF7 is second with 94 remixes. The song with the most remixes is Corridor of Time (15 remixes). Well, it's at par with Dr. Wily Stage 1 from Mega Man 2, Overworld BGM from Super Mario Bros. and Terra from Final Fantasy VI.

"Schala's Theme" is missing from your list

I also enjoy this piano adaptation of Corridors of Time:

The composer, Yasunori Mitsuda, also composed other highly regarded game soundtracks, Xenogears and Chrono Cross in particular.
