IJBM: videogames play fast and loose with musical form terms

in Media
Creature - Florida Dragon Turtle Human
Aria of Sorrow contains no arias
Symphony of the Night and Stickerbrush Symphony aren't symphonies
Funky's Fugue isn't a fugue
you don't even repeat levels in Rondo of Blood
Treetop Rock is hardly rock and K. Rool's Cacophony os rather consonant

to its credit, Harmpny of Dissonance does contain many dissonant harmonies (but it is certainly not a (White Night) Concerto)

    fwiw yes i admit that this is a petty complaint but that's why it's an IJBM thread :P

    Apparently it's called an ocarina in the Japanese version.

    I guess the localizers were afraid it'd be too exotic.

    Then Ocarina of Time was released and kids everywhere were shocked when they got round flattened-spherical brown things instead of ellipsoid blue things when they bought ocarinas for fun.

    Huh, for some reason I thought it was called a flute in the Japanese version too.
    blue things

    That's what they get for forgetting about the Fairy Ocarina.

    I actually bought one, years ago, without knowing about OoT, and it has this shape: 228.JPG

    My sister has an ocarina that actually is blue and resembles the one from OoT.

    meanwhile
