Video Game Music Guessing Contest (#1?) Results Revealed

Postby Sancles-Chan » Tue Jul 16, 2019 11:53 am

Hi! I felt like doing this so I asked on discord if anyone would be interested and I got like 2 responses so that's good enough for me

-- What is this? --
The download link at the bottom of this post has a zip file with 50 snippets of different video game songs, you are supposed to guess the games which these songs are from, there is 1 intruder which isn't from a video game which you only have to identify as the intruder and which is worth more points than the rest of the songs.

You guess by guessing The game you think the song is from

The point distribution goes as follows:
-2 Points for guessing the game a song's from
-1 Point for guessing the series a song's from
-4 Points for finding the intruder
-If you're the only person to recognize a song you get double points on it (only +2 in case of the intruder)

You can also ask for up to 2 hints on any song number you want, and you can only ask for 1 hint per song, no more than 2 hints will be given.

-- Any Prizes? --
The winner of the contest will get to host the next one and do whatever they want with it, for now I wanted to go with no gimmicks or anything because these aren't a thing that happens here.

Other than that there aren't any prizes

-- Deadline and Stuff --
The Deadline will be in 2 weeks
on July 31st

Your guesses are to be submitted to me in any way you'd like, just make it readable please
You can PM them to me on the forums or send them to me on discord @Sancles#1564

-- The Songs --
Here's the link to the zip file of all 50 songs:
Here

If you're on the fence about joining you might as well considering this isn't a huge time investment if you just wanna see what songs you know

Wait, is it possible to find the name of a specific video game song through the internet?

Oh, I didn't know about that. Not sure if that's allowed in the contest though

My best would be 4 100% correct guess. Sucks though.
Wish the music are like the watermark of those series/games to be easily recognizable by its style.

This is a cool idea, but I agree that people probably cheat it somehow.

I have a few entries already and it certainly doesn't feel like anyone has cheated yet.
