I found out about Eminence Orchestra after I watched their performance for the Metal Gear Solid 2/3/4 Theme music which I attached below. Also check out their performance of the Super Mario Brothers on youtube at:

Their performance of the One Winged Angel Theme from Final Fantasy VII is outstanding. I attached it below as well. They have also done work for Blizzard’s Diablo III and WoW. Music in video games is a crucial element of the whole experience and it’s a big differentiating factor of great games. Music can enhance the gaming experience or take away from it but never the less, great music is always welcome.
