Mini Mario Orchestra pays tribute to video games with a music medley
(CBS News) Do you have a love of gaming like your blogger here? Do you remember the thrill of beating Chaos in Final Fantasy, destroying Alduin in Skyrim and just about everything in-between in terms of both classic and modern RPG games? Then have I got just the thing for you! Check out a symphony (with a twist) perform a compilation of music entitled "Epic RPG Medley". It's a bit long (11.5 minutes), so feel free to bounce around or, even better, listen to the compilation in full.
The wonderful orchestral tribute to video games was performed by (aptly-named) The Mini Mario Orchestra and arranged by Diwa de Leon who writes about the inspiration:
Covering a wide range of video games, including many from The Final Fantasy series, Chrono Trigger, Dragon Quest, Mass Effect and more, this wonderful homage to gaming has without a doubt earned a big triple-rainbow salute of adoration from all of us here at The Feed!

I've wanted to make a really grand RPG medley for a while but I wanted to present it in a unique and epic way, thus the MINI MARIO ORCHESTRA was born! Here are some of my favorite soundtracks from various RPGs, the list is subjective.
