Okay so what this is is basically like, I make a tournament bracket out of video game music suggested by you, and then you vote on which song in each matchup is better in your opinion. Whichever gets the most votes goes to the next round and such, until we get a winner.
- You must post a youtube video or mp3 of the full version of each song you're nominating.
- You may submit a maximum of 4 songs.
- No remixes.
- No custom music made for unofficial games, i.e., ROM hacks.
- No unused music.
- When voting, please listen to both songs in each round.
- When voting, you may pass on voting for any number of rounds you like.
I suppose I'll give two weeks for voting. This means it ends on Tuesday, the 7th of September. No specific time on said date, but it'll be some time during the evening in central north america.
Any other questions: Ask away.
If I forgot something: Tell me.
-------------------- Your layout has been removed.
1. Okami - The Sun Rises
Blumiere nominated this already, and for good reason. Add in an outstanding final boss, mix in some of the game's main theme, and it makes this one of the most epic boss themes I've ever heard.
2. Kirby 64 - Neo Star Stages 2 and 4.
This theme does pretty much everything right. Nailing both high and low frequencies with some epic synth, it really is one of the greatest themes in the Kirby series.
3. Everquest: Omens of War - Nobles' Causeway.
Yes, this theme is actually from a relatively famous MMORPG back in the day. I guarantee no one here has heard it, but it is one of the most atmospheric and peaceful songs I've ever heard in a game. It truly fits the atmosphere of a ruined, ghostly canyon.
4. Klonoa: Door to Phantomile - Blue Cave Echo
I loved Klonoa when I was younger. It's a very underrated, but also a very good game. I rediscovered this theme recently, and remembered how awesome it was. Mix in a crazy time signature with all sorts of cool instruments (even a steel drum), and you've got a very awesome cave theme.
Asterix & Obelix (SNES) - The Mountains
This song is so underrated, although it really needs some attention, in my opinion. The game itself may be an ass, but the song is simply perfect. Too bad this hasn't been ported yet...
Damn, it was hard to choose. I know soo many wonderful and amazing VGMs, but I had to choose only 4.. ;_;
I haven't played so many games, so all I can suggest is the obvious mainstream songs. Doesn't mean they're bad though.
NOTE: This is probably more of a "my personal favorite VGM" list highly influenced by the memories I associate with them instead of a compilation of the most well-"built" songs that I think would have a chance to win this contest. Oh well.
