Saw this (Hitoshi Sakimoto AMA*) was going around on Reddit and thought some people might want to read up on it. If you don't know him by name, composed the music for a bunch of great games including Vagrant Story, FFXII, Valkyria Chronicles, and Final Fantasy Tactics.
Man, video game music would be a dream job area for me.
(* AMA mean Ask Me Anything in case you didn't know. I had to look it up myself..)
