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

It’s finally time for the moment many of you have been waiting for! Whether it’s to jump in and discover a brand new OST tied to a song that you liked, or ragefully scream once you realize what that song at the tip of your tongue was, we’ve got your results here! Take a look!







And now it's time to announce the winners!

The Results:

In 3rd place, we have:
K.T.B. with 73 points!


Coming in 2nd is:
Blue Leaf with 81 points!


And the overall winner, by an absolute landslide, is:
SomeGuy712x with 98 points!


SomeGuy712x
, send a PM to FPzero to collect your Steam code!

Here are the full results, where x^ is a series guess (1 point), x is a full guess (2 points), and x** indicates a full guess plus being the only one to guess that song correctly (2 + 1 = 3 points). For the HQ rips section, the j{} set at the end indicates which jokes were guessed correctly, if any (1 point each). 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).

On our end, it’s been fun hosting this contest, seeing whether our guesses about your guesses were correct, and especially if you’d fall into some of our devilish traps. We’ve taken note of a few flaws in our system this time around that we’ll try to address better in the future, but we hope you still had fun. 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, even though we tried our best to keep things organized. Thank you for participating, and see you next time!
Pretty chuffed with the results! I don't get one thing though. Was my correct guess of the Homebrew Channel theme not counted because I thought it to be the impostor?

On that, you defined "impostor" as "not actually from a video game!" Not "no ties to video games" :O

But yeah, besides the Homebrew Channel, I was right on all guesses that I was sure of! All the others I've literally never gotten close to due to never playing (or hearing of) those games, so I'm pleased!
Yeah, ngl, honestly, I think I'm much happier with this result, even if I at least wanted to get third place, since that means that I can find peeps that are much more experienced with VGM then I am, and really, with the fact that I have gotten 4th place (which is actually still very high btw, but still), definitely proves that I'm not the only guy that likes VGM around here (tho admittely I'm one of the most vocal about it, so heh #smw{^_^;}); I actually didn't expect SomeGuy to actually know this much about VGM, but yeah, I only really seen him in Youtube comments and haven't talked to him at all; still tho, I'm impressed #wario{O_o}

Also, I'm fairly happy that I haven't actually gotten many wrong answers for the guesses that I made (tho yeah, Devil Engine instead of Hyper Duel was trippy AF, like c'mon man, I literally only found out about the soundtrack for a very short time lmao, I wasn't even aware that a Cosmo Babylon arrangement was on there on top of that), but yeah, I felt that I could have probably bullshitted some guesses out as well (the Hyakutaro Tsukumo and Shinji Hosoe songs that I didn't get especially could have somewhat "benefitted" from that)

And honestly, just saying, but a lot of songs were very unfair to guess, both for me and for a lot of people lol; the Sakura Blast one especially I only gotten it because I just so happened to run by it while browsing Soundcloud, and was also kinda curious about the whole soundtrack since Jimmy made a SPC of the credits theme from that game in Idol 9, so I mean, yeah :V

Still tho, this was a great VGM game, and honestly I think I'm definitely happier with not winning anything this time, so it was a great result for me haha

yay i guessed one that im the only one ( 8 ). and 10 is not that bad
Wow, I can't beleive there are people who did worse than me, since mostoof the songs didn't ring a single bell.

Edit: After looking at the list I noticed a lot of the songs were from games I actually played, sometimes it's easy to forget some themes.
Holy banana pudding! Wow, I figured my score would at least be in the 80s, but I didn't expect 98, and I didn't know whether anyone would score higher than me. Still, Blue Leaf and K.T.B. did score quite well too, so congratulations to them getting 2nd and 3rd!

Anyway, as well as I did, there's still some I feel like I should've known, or at least want to comment on:

015 really sounded like a Touhou song to me, and I wasn't entirely wrong. I just didn't think to check the Len'en series songs.

For 018, I correctly figured it was Animal Crossing, but after taking forever to check the GameCube game's soundtrack, I just didn't want to bother checking the others.

030 really sounded like a familiar NES or Game Boy song to me, and I did skim over a list of all Game Boy games, checking the ones I thought it could've potentially been. However, I overlooked checking Game Boy Camera. D'oh.

I think 034 bothers me the most. I KNEW this one sounded like it was from an NES game I played, and it indeed was. However, I only browsed over a list of official NES games, and forgot to consider that bootleg SMW game that I have done a YouTube playthrough of in the past. Argh!

Ah, so 038 was the impostor. Yeah, I never would've figured that out.

057 gave me a laugh when I figured it out. One of the first things I checked was if there was an Iron Man game for the Genesis, and there is... sorta. I found a playthrough of a bootleg one. However, its music wasn't even close. Later on, while doing other random searching for whatever I could find, I happened to stumble upon it!

058 is another "D'oh" for me, as I did check the Nintendo Land soundtrack during my random searches, but somehow failed to notice this one.

065 is yet another "D'oh", because I did think to check the TalesWeaver soundtrack, and even went over it a few times while trying to compare to all the songs on this list, but I missed this one anyway.

For 069, thank you, JUMP ½'s main overworld theme! I knew it sounded like an enhanced version of that Wild Arms overworld theme, so I immediately checked Alter Code F, and bingo!

For 072, I meant to check the GBA Mario games, since its quality sounded GBA, but never got around to it. Oh, well.

Wow, 084 did have me completely fooled, since it sounded so similar to the Vectorman title theme. And, I had guessed that it was perhaps the impostor.

For 087, I didn't consider checking the Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games series.

089 was almost another "D'oh", since I knew it sounded almost, but not quite identical to SMB2 NES. However, I suddenly thought of Doki Doki Panic on the final day before the deadline, fortunately.

Oh, I didn't quite get 095 correct. I had checked Fortune Street of course, and I did think the audio quality wasn't quite 100% identical, but still guessed the original Fortune Street anyway, since I wasn't aware of the DS version.

B02, I knew was Kirby related, but all of my searching somehow failed to locate that exact song.

At least I totally nailed one of the SiIvaGunner rips, B03, which I figured out on the final day before the deadline.

For E01, I was kinda on the right track when I thought it sounded Touhou-like, but I didn't check the fan games, and I probably wouldn't have thought of that one anyway, even though I do remember having watched videos of it long ago.

E05 is another case of "D'oh", as I knew it sounded familiar, but going over that list of Game Boy games didn't help me, since I immediately dismissed the Pokémon titles without checking them, not thinking of the possibility of unused songs.

And, E11 being Barrage X Musical is kind of another "D'oh". I have played the demo of that Steam game a while ago, and did buy the full game, but never got around to playing or even installing the full game yet.

For the rest of the ones that I didn't figure out, I don't feel too bad, as a lot of them were very obscure to me, and I'm pleasantly surprised I managed to randomly find as many as I did.

(BTW, this forum page horribly lags on me, even if I don't click "Show" for the 120 embedded songs.)
I'm really ashamed at myself I didn't get 002, because it didn't spring into my mind until after the contest ended, so I just made a random as heck unlikely guess. Ah well, it was still pretty fun regardless.

I only remembered 051 because it was featured in a much older VGM guessing contest some 4 years ago (and also because I looked up the lyrics....but I guess that's a bonus for being a French speaker)...though I really could've probably also gotten 069 (since I watched raocow's LP of JUMP1/2, which is why it felt familiar to me) aside from 002.

Quick note about 047, it actually seems to miss some YM2608 samples (because Anex86 (the PC-98 emulator some people use, I myself favour Neko Project 21) does not support them at all) in the YT upload. This is how it's supposed to sound like.

I really wasn't expecting to do that well actually! A lot of these were just unknown for me or blind guesses, and in the end I somehow managed to score a lot of points. Kinda unfortunate that I didn't fall into the top 3 but this was all just for fun, so it's no biggie. Even had the same points as Ultima, hehe.

Congrats to the winners and the contestants!

--------------------
yay, I got a few points~

How I completely overlooked Mr. Explorer is beyond me.

--------------------


 
I would never have guessed more than half of those if I actually bothered to submit my guesses in time #tb{DX<}

Congrats, everyone!

most of the VGM that I like are mostly the same with what Sinc-X likes really, so it's pretty easy for me to know about these ... probably why you 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)

You were saying? (jk ily Ulti)

Well that was fun! I suppose the winner was pretty easy to predict considering the fact that I think he's won more of these contests than anyone else on this site, but congrats to everyone else as well.

I'd like to say that I really appreciate the fact that each pick has a "story" behind them in the results or a few words about how they were discovered - makes for a more interesting advertisement of the sources and is fun to read after the results are posted, so I hope future contests (if there ever are any) will continue to do that!


I am a little confused about E10 though. How could anyone have known that? Especially if you were muted on the Discord as bebn was writing it? It looks like the point of that pick is that it was "impossible" for anyone to ever know it, but in that case I don't really get why it was included.

--------------------
All of my imaginary friends think I have mental problems.

Currently doing a walkthrough of all the VLDC11 levels, in order of ranking. Reviews of each level are included in the comments!
ayy lmao

lowkey some of the songs were fire so thx for links
E10 was just a dumb joke to get people a bit confused and/or talking about it - we had no intention of it being guessable, we just wanted to have a bit of fun playing with ppls heads a bit

17th place good, not on the last but 17th place also good only I have 25 points

List Soundtrack - List Hacks
I only got a few of them, but I'm glad I got a unique answer. Mercury Meltdown Revolution was actually the first game I got for the Wii so 9 seemed familiar.

For 38, the impostor, I thought it sounded like something from Kirby and the Amazing Mirror, but I couldn't find it in the OST.

My favourite was definitely 63, though. While it's not my favourite PMD track (I think it's excellent, but there are many that I like even more) it was definitely extremely welcome amidst a long list of songs I had no clue about.
@K.T.B Honestly, I was actually kind of surprised at first that you managed to get most of those guesses actually, but then again, my VGM knowledge in general is still not quite there yet, and you're much more experienced than me, so I can't say I should be surprised really ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

a lot of your guesses were songs that I didn't really know of that much, or arguably even had much interest on really (not the Atelier guess tho, I was actually kinda thinking of listening to the series's soundtrack since quite a few VGM friends of mine from a Discord server I frequent are really into the music of those games), tho I am kinda surprised you'd know about Ibara as well lmao (then again, if you know about Show Time under Leaden Skies's existence like I do, then it would probably be pretty obvious :V)
Layout by Mathos
i forgot to submit my guesses I would've done okay, I guessed 90% of these thanks to ROM hacks and some that were way too obvious. I fell into some version traps because I don't play videogames. But I got Doki Doki Panic right bitches

I was befuddled by 21 and 91 because I knew I heard them before, especially 21 which has been an overused port in the past. The name "Powell" strikes me as heavily familiar now. I don't know where I had 91 from, prolly a port as well, but it was extremely familiar (I could finish the song in my head).

e: also I thought 57 was supposed to be the non-VGM -.-
