Note that the YouTube embeds may take some time to all load - they aren't broken, just slow!

Folks, it’s time for the big reveal. What on earth were most of these songs? What do the pickers have to say for themselves? And most importantly, who is the biggest VGM connoisseur of them all? Find out now!







And now it's time to announce the winners!

The Results:

In 3rd place, we have:
SomeGuy712x with 75 points!


Coming in 2nd is:
Maniek with 88 points!


And the overall winner is:
Igno with 95 points!


To all of the top 3 - please send me a message, either on the site or Discord, with your Steam username, ASAP. Steam will require for whatever reason that you friend me, then wait 3 days, and then I can send over your gift cards. If this is too much to ask, your prize will be forfeited.

Here are the full results, where x^ is a series guess (1 point), x is a full guess (2 points, or 3 for the composter), and x** indicates a full guess plus being the only one to guess that song correctly (2 + 1 = 3 points). Recall that Extreme songs are worth 2 extra points for a correct guess (so 1 point for series, 4 points for full, 5 points for only guesser). +I indicates that the impostor was guessed (but not necessarily identified). Bold indicates the compostor.

1. Igno, 95 points ( 1, 2**, 3, 4, 5, 8, 10, 11, 15, 22, 23^, 24, 25, 27, 28, 29, 30, 32, 33, 37^, 40, 41, 46, 47, 48, 49, 51, 52, 58, 59, 62, 63, 66, 67**, 68, 69, 73, 74, 78, 82, 83, 85, 87, 88, 90, 92, 95**, 96, +I )

Anyway, that’s it from us! Hopefully, the change of cast has breathed a bit of fresh air into this contest. As you might’ve been able to tell, we had a lot of fun picking out songs and writing dumb blurbs. Thank you all for participating, and until next time!
P.S. If you notice any errors in the results, please let one of us know right away - there was a lot to keep track of, so it’s not unlikely we missed a couple things despite our best efforts to keep things organized.
fuck now I have to play abducted toad again
I did good.



Jeez, no wonder why I couldn't figure most of them out. I'm really not sure why I bother. I should have at least gotten the series for 88, though, with that soundfont. Also, I could have sworn that The Fate of the Fairies was used in the first Trails in the Sky game as well, during the martial arts competition. I must have misremembered that battle theme.
well,
I didn't do good
because I didn't join


But damn, I would've never guessed a lot of those (with the possible exception of the Earthbound one?). This contest was obscure.

Also holy shit, this thread is slow as heck. The videos should be linked to instead.

♩ ♪

I should play more vidya games.

I also spent way too long playing that winnie the pooh game
4th place hell yeah!
This was so fun to do. Hours of browsing through Zophar paid off! Thanks for setting this up!

You're thinking of this one

soundcloud / bandcamp / twitter / battle of the bits / buy our album
12th place, good for a first try

--------------------
"A Powerful person, has power."
Huh, I was honestly expecting to be placed just a tad higher, but honestly... I'm hella satisfied for the results here lmao; definitely feel like I could've gotten a hell of a lot more had I tried just a bit more, but... yeah, considering I tried extra hard this time, I don't think I should complain haha

Tbh, a lot of these fucked me over hard, but I feel like the ones that did it the most were 15 and 53; 15 because it was so obvious it was a CPS2 song (for me anyways) that I'm honestly ashamed that I didn't guess it was a Darkstalkers song (despite the fact I did thought it was from it, but my inexperience with that game's soundtrack made me think otherwise), and 53 is for the same reasons, except because it was so obvious that it was a Hyakutaro Tsukumo song, but despite the fucking intense searching I did by looking through his discography on VGMdb and looking through KHInsider's MP3 uploads of his OSTs, I suppose I shouldn't be surprised the game actually ended up just being one that I outright forgot that was from Tsukumo (and one that I'm not too familiar with and only found out because of a cover I've heard on Soundcloud), so that kind of sucks; at the very least tho I found 52 out because I was also thinking Qwesta was the one which did that one, so at least I didn't go out empty-handed haha still tho, fuck you Sinc for somehow fucking me over hard like that wherever you put in a Tsukumo song >:[

Hell, I played Escaped Chasm and I'm a Toby Fox fan, why I couldn't remember it :(
Also, shoutouts for the chads who picked and guessed Ghouls ‘n Ghosts (C64), Bug Fables (please play this one guys), Newer SMBDS, An Untitled Story, and Shanghai II (Sunsoft Bass).
The deadline slipped past me, but it seems most of my guesses were completely off anyway lmao. Dunno if I'm more impressed by just how obscure a lot of these are, or by how people were able to recognize most of them.

Surprised nobody guessed the Battle for Bikini Bottom theme, though. That was like, one of the few that explicitly caught my recognition.

Also I appreciate the heck out of the Spark the Electric Jester and An Untitled Story inclusions.
Hell yeah didn't guessed the game but I recognised the artist if the first song. Camellia FTW. That's a win in my book.

Other than that I only found songs from popular Nintendo games or from SNES games that exist in custom musics so I'm hella surprised I didn't get a lower placement.

Edit: some other comments for myself
17: Guessed it because I have the game on my SNES, not because of custom musics like all of you >:^(
26: Damn this game is on my backlog. If I played it I would've maybe found it.
29: This one too is on my backlog. :^) Come on mg, release a physical version!
31: It's GBA Gamefreak soundfount. If it's not pokemon it's Drill Dozer ofc.
32: In my backlog too (this and 11 are the only classic MM I haven't played)
42: I FREAKIN RECOGNIZED THIS SONG BUT DIDN'T KNOW WHERE, IT WAS FROM THIS HECK OF A GAME§§§
44: Wait why did I not recognize Ristar? I suck!
49: Very funky! Love it.
73: In my answer I said I recognize it but don't remember the game. But actually I never played this game, don't even know what is this game. Weird...
75: I guessed Mario&Wario. Close enough.
78: The Sonic Advance are in my backlog too.
85: I guessed a Mario bootleg. Didn't got a point but I'm not wrong.
95: My guess was "I've heard a custom music with the same samples... Castlevania?" Well it's technically a custom music but...
Also many songs I guessed were touhou remixes but there isn't any. :(

gg to all
Cool, 3rd place. I'll certainly take that.

Now for comments about a few of the songs I missed:

06. D'oh, I typed just "Keyboard Mania", so I only got the series point.
29. Really, hentai? Yeah, I never would've come close to getting that one.
34. D'oh, I had searched Game & Wario while trying to figure out 64, but wasn't focused on song 34 at the time, so I didn't make the association.
37. Ah, I knew that one was a trick. I searched all variations of the Tower theme I could think of, but it never occurred to me to check the "Newer" hack.
52. D'oh, I had checked ZeroRanger while focused on other songs. My mind didn't link it to song 52, though.
64. Argh, I searched every Wario game I could think of, knowing it was a remix of Wario Land 2's factory theme, but Psycho Waluigi never came to mind in the process.
77. Same as what I said for 34, but replace "Game & Wario" with "WarioWare DIY".
80. Oh, I should've known that one, maybe. I knew it sounded familiar, and I believe I watched an AGDQ run of that game (in an Awful Block, of course) fairly recently.
E7. I thought this one had sounded familiar to me, but maybe not, as I don't recognize that game at all. Maybe this song is just very similar to another one I was thinking of instead.

Oh, and about 46... Was I given full credit for that? I only said "46 - Sounds like it might be from a Kirby game.", but in the results for me, I see "46", but without the "^" that would indicate the series guess. I figured I'd just ask about that. (Seeing how I'm 13 points away from both 2nd and 4th place, this 1 point wouldn't affect anything anyway.)

Also, this page with over 100 embedded YouTube videos lagged my computer horribly badly for some reason. It took a very long time before I was able to even post this reply. Is it possible in future VGM contests to maybe have all of the embedded videos be on another page, with the main results thread just having simple links instead?
Kinda dropped out on joining because I wasn't really satisfied with the answers so I wish I had submitted my initial draft. There was one song that I knew that nobody else did so I'm sad about that.

Nonetheless, congrats to the winners and participants!

Whoops, that was a copying error on my part. Doesn't affect the scores (since the scores are calculated separately before i manually translate them into results like this)

I'll consider the options, assuming I host the next one.

I guess that's the most unusual way to introduce yourself, but hi I'm Igno and I have been lurking around these lands for a while...

About the contest, wow that was fun! It was my first time participating a contest of that kind, and it provided me an unique experience as I had contact with such remarkable musical diversity. It definetely was a great mental exercise involving memory, research skills and general VGM knowledge. The picks were awesome to say the least, obscure as I like it (and at the same time hate it). Also congratulations to Maniek and SomeGuy712x for second and third places!

There's way too much mega man though
pft, even the 37, 40 and 64, and 85 (!) that I was so sure about were... wrong.
I knew I had no incentive in trying to guess but tried anyways.

I'm usually not interested in game music I don't know, so I wouldn't spend hours on zophar like this another commenter. Probs the last time I'm choosing to take this contest with limited knowledge.

Congrats to all the nerds winners :)
Especially congratulations to Igno, our enthusiastic new recruit!!!
Welcome buddy. This is golden.

Edit: OH! For 31 I was sure of Pokémon because of Ichinose's style!!! So, not too far away. Come one gimme half a point for that lmao.

Edit2: Come on 85!!! I'm i shock. Exact same melody appears in Super Mario Bros SMAS bonus room. I just thought it was somewhat adulterated LOL! UNFAIR!

Edit3: Well ok I am grumpy and all but it was cool enjoying the tracks at least. Just the frustration of not knowing where they're from was uncool because I've felt like the uncultured swine that I am.

--------------------
Hey this is me, Darkslayer.
This is my C3 music port thread.
I am honestly not surprised I was the only one who guessed 97 (Suzuki Bakuhatsu), because I happen to be the publisher of these TASes.

BTW, the game is about defusing increasingly weird bombs. That's all I'm going to say on the matter.

Anyway, this was overall a fun contest.
