Yes although I don't want it to sound *literally* like that, I get what you're saying.
I posted in another thread that I miss the melody and creativity of Uematsu working with synthesizers rather than full on orchestras.
I also miss the gravitas (and maybe the sound has something to do with it) of the magic itself. Bolt 1 or whatever was this little tiny sliver, then when Bolt 3 or 4 came around it was a spectacle, and when X-wave or Ultima came around...it was over.
Ancient magic in FFXI was kinda like that, but that was it. I think the only way to reclaim that old feeling is by changing the scale/camera angle to show more of the screen...but I digress...
