we gave every [regular] song a difficulty ranking between 1-5 (which will be revealed at results time), and the average difficulty is around 3.1 - so, at least by our judgement, the answer is "yeah its probably pretty hard-ish maybe" ((((but we're obviously biased,))))

Is there any particular reason why this is the case? In previous contests there was a system where a rough indicator of each track's "difficulty" was included next to each mp3 right from the get-go, and I personally liked that system. It was somewhat of a clue, and encouraged participation (in my eyes) because more people could get an idea right away where they stand - i.e. if they recognize a few of the "hard" ones or most of the "easy" ones.

Yeah Sinc-X usually does that with his picks. I kind of like it though, then it's always more of a reveal when the results come in and you've got lots of opportunity to learn of new OSTs to check out in the future.

Yeah, tbh, I think I'm just lucky that most of the VGM that I like (especially nowadays) are mostly the same with what Sinc-X likes really, so it's pretty easy for me to know about these when I'm already mostly familiar with the soundtracks and certain composers this list has, which yeah, I do agree it's very biased lmao; probably why both you and idol are having such a hard time with this (mostly because you don't seem to be into that sorta music very much, from what I've seen) :V

of course tho, that can also be the opposite for a person which has an entirely different taste in music as well, especially when it ends up being too specific, does a list like this; ngl, if any of you did a VGM list (especially K.T.B, since I'm a bit more familiar with his style of music, and it's, like, the exact opposite of what I'm into), I wouldn't stand a chance lmao

We should get bonus points if we know what level or what part of the game a song is from. Just saying. It would be nice, but I only know two of them so far.

We considered this at first, but to simplify things, we decided that just naming the game is sufficient, since if you recognize the game, you can simply just dig through the OST on YouTube until you find the game. It's just grinding at that point. It also makes it easier when compiling the points since we have less variables.
super quick last minute question: if we can guess the joke but not the song its riffing off of does that still net us the bonus point

You get the bonus point but not the song point so yeah.
Entered it and it turns out I did slightly better than I expected, but I still didn't know most of it. That seemed like 80% of this was extreme songs and overall difficulty was higher than 3,1/5. Damn, if there were more music from 8-/16-bit era, I'd definitely do better. The contest taught me that I should be more into modern day music, though I could guess a few new games correctly.

I did try high-quality rip category and I think I guessed one or two jokes not knowing where the songs were from. This means I'll get a point or two!

I also assumed game series in two extreme songs.

I attempted to put down game/series guesses for most of them, including the extreme ones. The "extreme" tracks make me a little suspicious actually, since two of them I recognized 100% what they were and neither of them are from even remotely obscure games. It makes me feel as though I misinterpreted something somewhere along the lines, so I'm pretty interested in seeing the answer list whenever it comes out.

totally not three hours late

And with that, the Summer Solstice VGM Contest has come to a close.

Thank you everyone for participating, and we hope you had fun!

We need some time to compile all the results together and double-check to make sure we did everything correctly. Results will be announced soon!
Dang it I forgot to submit my 15 guesses #smrpg{sad}
