Hi! In July 2019, the first Music guessing contest was organized by Sancles-Chan. As the winner of that contest, hereby I will be hosting a second one at the end of 2019.
-- What is this? --
The download link at the bottom of this post has a zip file with 50 different video game songs, you are supposed to guess the games which these songs are from, unlike last time, there is 3 intruder.
You guess by guessing The game you think the song is from.
-- Important --
are songs not used in video games. If the songs are used in a video game while not originated from a video game, it is still an intruder, easily recognised if the creator of those games gives credit to the songs used. Type "Intruder" in the guesses.
are songs that are remixed. If the remixed songs are not used in a video game while originated from a video game, you cannot guess that song using the original title.
However, there are indie games / another series of games that used the remixes. And none of them is intruders.
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/series 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.
Hints may consist of the music description, song descriptions, character descriptions and memes descriptions.
Look for keywords because you can direct / indirectly google those out.
Private message (PM) me to ask me hints.
Improvement from the last contest:
There are 3
intruders instead of one.
Most songs from various games used in the last Music Guessing Contest won't be used in this one.
One series should have only one song.
Unlike Mario himself, which has a multiple series, eg: Paper Mario, Mario And Luigi, Super Mario, Mario Party, Mario Kart, Mario Sports, Mario Olympics etc.
The difficulty has been reduced because the last one like half the games we don't even know existed. There wouldn't be any single-digit scores because of those level 1 songs
A clear difficulty definition:
Level 1 Song: You should know this by default. If you can't get those right, you are in the wrong forum.
Level 2 Song: You might play this game; you might hear those songs on some levels; those are from popular series and memes that you know.
Level 3 Song: You might accidentally find this while clicking on random playlists; if you are lucky you might hear those songs in some levels; those are absurd songs from notable series.
Level 4 Song: If you are lucky you might come across those games/songs; those aren't even series, but games that are decently popular.
Level 5 Song: Just don't waste your time on those, you don't even know these games' existence; use a hint would be recommended.
Participants: ( Those who submitted are bolded )
-- Any Prizes? --
The winner of the contest will get to host the next one and do whatever they want with it, don't use the same game that I used on this one. And start from song 151.
-- Deadline and Stuff --
