Genso Suikoden Original Game Soundtrack
I didn't discover this series until the PlayStation 2 era, with my first game in the franchise being the third, which didn't quite blow me away, partly because of its stingy use of music. I did eventually go back to play its two predecessors, the first of which was probably one of the first great RPGs to grace the fledgling Sony PlayStation, and I found its music to be much better, with a few central themes and remixes, with some of the tracks really helping enhance things such as character deaths. "Black Forest" is one of the best forest themes ever in an RPG, and "Gorgeous Scarleticia" is an awesome castle theme remixed from the "Theme of Narcissism." Definitely recommended listening.
