Surprise! It's been over two years since the last one, but it's time for another video game music guessing contest to start off the summer (or winter, for our southern hemisphere folks)! Sinc-X
and I, bebn legg
, SMWC's resident Canadian staff members, will be your hosts this time,
We've carefully dug through all sorts of video game songs to bring you 100
short snippets to guess. Go big or go home, right?
But wait, there's more! In addition to the regular songs, we've got two bonus categories as well:
and EXTREME songs
We've picked 5 High-Quality Rips
from SiIvaGunner for you to guess as well, but they go beyond your usual Flintstones and Snow Halation. We can't make it that obvious, now can we?
, on the other hand, are songs from incredibly obscure games that most people have probably never heard of.
Now for the rules!
It's simple, for each song, guess the name of the game
it's from. If you want to include the name of the track, feel free to, but it's not necessary.
Series Correctly Guessed
- 1 pt
Game Correctly Guessed
- 2 pts
But the fun doesn't stop there, because we've got bonus points to hand out as well!
-One of the songs is an impostor, it's not actually from a video game! If you correctly identify which one, you get 1 extra point
-For High-Quality Rips
, if you correctly identify the rip's joke
, you get 1 extra point
-If you correctly guess an EXTREME song
, then you'll get 2 extra points
-If you're the only
person to guess a song, you'll receive 1 extra point
Whoever collects the most points will win themselves a nice, pretty, wonderful, trophy to show off, as well as a fancy Steam code.
Of course, to keep the contest fun and fair, don't reveal your guesses to anyone else
! If you share your guesses publicly, you'll automatically be disqualified from the contest and be banned for a few days. It sounds extreme, but it's just to make sure things stay fun!
You can find the songs here!
Compile all your guesses in a neat, organized format
, and send them via PM or Discord DM to either Sinc-X
or myself (bebn legg

. That's right, you've got two whole weeks until right as C3 starts to submit your guesses. If you're not submitting a guess for a particular song, there's no need to include it in the list you're sending us. If you remember a song after you've already submitted your guesses, no worries, just send us another PM or DM, we'll compile everything together in the end.
Happy listening! ♫
