100 VIDO GAM SHOWDOWN V 3
We just literally finished one of these today so what better time to host one revolving around video games. This is the third version of this so hooray to us for making it this far. If you don't know how this works, I shall explain shortly. I will take various songs submitted by all of you (and some by me) until we reach 100, then they'll be sorted into 20 rounds. After those are done, we'll reach the semi-final rounds, and after that, we'll reach the final round. Then, we'll have our winner winner chickem dinner!!!

Also, I would like to give credit to Kaity for running face-offs for years and keeping the interest alive and also making them easier to do ty ty

More rules and stuff to know
  • You will PM me up to 5 songs (it can be less if you cannot come up with 5). Make sure to include a link for each track as it will save me a lot of time and also minimize room for error. Try to find a version that is not extended if possible.
  • NO Pokemon, OSU, unofficial remixes, fan covers, etc. There was already a face-off for exclusively pokemon songs. It would get boring to have them dominate something like this. OSU is banned since it doesn't really have a soundtrack of its own. As for covers and remixes, if it is NOT on the soundtrack itself, it does not count. If you have to ask yourself if a song is eligible to be submitted or not, that's probably a sign that it isn't. However, you may still ask me just in case.
  • Each round will consist of 5 songs. Make sure to listen to them fully (unless it's an extended version somehow) before rating. You will give them a score from 0 - 10. The song with the highest average will advance to the semis.
  • The 5 songs that had the highest averages in the initial rounds yet did not win will advance to a wild card round.
  • During the semis, wild card, and final round, songs will be ranked with this system: -3, -1, 0, +1, +3. Each song will only receive one of each score.
  • Do not intentionally nuke a song just because it'll help your song win.
  • Try to explain why you gave a song the score that you did. It is fun to read and also lets us know you actually did listen to the song.
  • Have fun jammin

Sonic Heroes - 8/10: God, this song is catchy. While I haven't played Sonic Heroes in its entirety, I've heard this song, and I still love it.

Logic ~ Truth of the Crime Scene - 6.5/10: It's a decent investigation theme. I'm not sure what to say other than that.

Apocalypsis Magnatus - 8/10: I've never played a Final Fantasy game, even though I'm sort of tempted to get 15... but not really. Anyway, this boss theme is... actually pretty good. Unfortunately, I don't have the context aside from who the boss is, so all I can say is that it's a good boss theme.

Terra - 7/10: For the style of game it is, even though it's dated, it's a decent song. As I said before, never played Final Fantasy, but the song is a good one.

Nuclear Throne - 7.5/10: This is so western, it's insane. It's a nice track, I'll give it that. I'm not sure what else to say without repeating myself.

Imma try to be a bit harsher in my grading than I usually am, I used to tend to give "average" songs like a 7.5 but I'm putting it at 5 now. Also 0-2.4=red, 2.5-4.9=orange, 5-7.4=yellow, 7.5-10=green, for my personal color scheming.

Sonic Heroes: 7
SONIC HEEEROOOOOOOOOOOOOOES. God this song is my childhood. It's so much fun and its catchy. That being said, I suspect the main reason I like this is nostalgia and not because the song itself is actually good because if I remove myself from my rocking out, then it isn't really amazing, but there is a charm to the song I think. It's just so energetic.
Logic ~ Truth of the Crime Scene: 6
Groovy. Nothing particular stands out to me, but it was a mildly enjoyable listen. Nice swing to it though.
Apocalypsis Magnatus: 4.5
The song had nice parts, and then it had parts that were incredibly chaotic and I had a hard time really finding a solid beat to cling onto. I get it's probably trying to sound chaotic, but it just kind of feels too lost in direction at some point. That being said, the parts where the song is slow is very strong. But the song liked to throw a bunch of elements together and just make things bleh.
Terra: 7
The drum here is very nice. A solid, simple theme, though I think it does get a bit repetitive after a while.
The Throne: 9
I get very Paint it Black vibes if that makes sense? The theme is so clean, its so good, AHH. It definitely has a western aesthetic, and it plays it very ****ing well. I did think there was a deeper sounding instrument that sounded out of place at one point but other than that I have zero complaints.

Sonic Heroes - Sonic Heroes: 3/10 The vocals are...not so good in my opinion. The guitar is ok but the vocals are just bad, to be blunt.

Logic ~ Truth of the Crime Scene - Ace Attorney Investigations 2: 7/10 This was pretty relaxing and chill. I enjoyed listening to it.

Apocalypsis Magnatus - Final Fantasy XV: 8/10 The vocalizing was a nice touch, and I liked how the instrumentals sounded. Overall it was pretty intense but very good. It was a little long and by the end had just become background music.

Terra - Final Fantasy VI: 6/10 I liked the beginning but not the part with the Trombone so much.

The Throne - Nuclear Throne: 4.5/10 This was interesting. I felt that the voice was too loud though, and the note choices were odd sometimes.

Sonic Heroes - Sonic Heroes: 8/10 This is exactly as corny as every other vocal Sonic theme, and I mean that as a compliment. I jam to this.

Logic ~ Truth of the Crime Scene - Ace Attorney Investigations 2: 7/10 Basically echoing Ravey here. I could see myself getting some work done to this, if that makes sense.

Apocalypsis Magnatus - Final Fantasy XV: 6/10 I enjoyed it overall, but I wasn't wowed by any means.

Terra - Final Fantasy VI: 7/10 This is pretty solid. Not mush more to say.

The Throne - Nuclear Throne: 7/10 Major props for how well it uses the western feel.

Sonic Heroes - Sonic Heroes: 6/10 - who the hell nominates a Sonic Heroes song, that feels so off the wall for some reason. oh, right, the song itself. uh, it was okay, lyrics are kinda lol but then again that's Sonic for you
Logic ~ Truth of the Crime Scene - Ace Attorney Investigations 2: 8.5/10 - I enjoyed it, kinda catchy, definitely the best of the bunch
Apocalypsis Magnatus - Final Fantasy XV: 6/10 - It was alright, but I feel like it was definitely trying way too hard to be something it wasn't, so I couldn't really get into it.
Terra - Final Fantasy VI: 7.5/10 - It was pretty nice, it's definitely a solid theme that holds its own
The Throne - Nuclear Throne: 4/10 - It was okay, started out well but then when the voice came in it just dropped so fast for me.

Sonic Heroes - Sonic Heroes: 3/10 I ain't gonna lie I was never a fan of the sonic songs with vocals they were always so cheesy and sadly to me never in a charming sense

Logic ~ Truth of the Crime Scene - Ace Attorney Investigations 2: 4/10 Inoffensive background track. I actually never really got the appeal behind Ace Attorney music as it usually feels very forgettable to me. Maybe that would change if I played them but for now this is how it be...

Apocalypsis Magnatus - Final Fantasy XV: 10/10 A masterfully composed track that plays during the heights of a very great DLC episode. Everything about this track gives off a sense of power and desperation at the same time. I LOVE it.

Terra - Final Fantasy VI: 7.5/10 And now we go to simpler times in FF. This is undeniably a solid classic. That really all there is to say.

The Throne - Nuclear Throne: 5/10 It was not bad but it was too short to imprint itself on me.

Sonic Heroes - Sonic Heroes - Why would you pick a low tier crush 40 song. this song is very dated at this point. I'll give it a 7/10 for being a slap tho. Do you feel your strong Spaghetti arms though?
Logic ~ Truth of the Crime Scene - Ace Attorney Investigations 2 - I mean this is very inoffensive music. I don't care either way for it. 5/10
Apocalypsis Magnatus - Final Fantasy XV - Imagine being able to see this post was made by ignis gang. Listening to this song made me realise what I don't like about FFXV's soundtrack, but this song has a good main melody, so it gets a 7/10
Terra - Final Fantasy VI- what a bop, shows both the fragility of Terra and the resolution she has in her goals, a perfect duality of her character. 9/10
delicious.jpg
The Throne - Nuclear Throne - This just reminds me of those videos of that guy doing the halo theme in the bathroom im sorry. I like this song except for the guy moaning into a microphone 6/10

Sonic Heroes: Solid 7/10. I like the feel and the composition/guitarwork, but the lyrics literally make no sense to me except SOOOOONIC HEEEEROOOOEEESSSSS (SOOOOONIC HEEEEROOOOEEESSSSS).

Logic: 5.5/10. I'm sure it's fine in the context of the game, but listening to it as-is, it's kind of meh. The sounds sound like they came straight off a DS, and not in a good way. The MIDI instrumentation really brings this composition down. I just don't feel any emotion or anything while listening to it.

Apocalypsis Magnatus: Definitely a 9/10! I love the solo violin and the dynamics! This pieces goes all over and gets me grooving. The choral work at about 1:40 doesn't sound great to me, but I love practically everything else about this one. The one solo part sounds exactly like the Skyrim theme, though :hmmazurill:

Terra's Theme: 8/10. Fantastic instrument work for the SNES's time. Atmospheric and it feels like it's the beginning of a grand adventure.

Nuclear Throne: 8/10. Fantastic guitar and background instrumental work, although I feel a solo trumpet would have been better than an Arabian-sounding moan. It works, but that's just my opinion. Overall, I feel like it definitely captures a wasteland/desert feet.

Sonic Heroes - 6/10 - Not going to lie I'm boosting its score signfiicantly because of nostalgia points. It'd be a good 2-3 points lower otherwise, because as far as Sonic music goes it is 1) cheesier than normal 2) inferior to other vocalized tracks.

Logic ~ Truth of the Crime Scene - 4/10 - Inoffensive background music. Not something I'd go actively listening to. It's not bad, it's not special.

Apocalypsis Magnatus - 9/10 - Added this to one of my playlists instantly. Excellent track I hadn't heard before.

Terra's Theme - 8/10 - How many scenes with Terra in does this actually play? I think it's mostly known, ironically, as the overworld theme of the World of Balance more than Terra's theme specifically. Regardless, one of the few tracks from the SNES era that really holds up.

Nuclear Throne - 5/10 - Actually forgot I was listening to this and it made me forget to finish this post ( was writing as I was going through). So uh, that's kind of an indicment of how I felt about the song. The first 30 seconds were good, but after that it's nothing that really stood out to me.

Sonic Heroes - Sonic Heroes (5.5/10) This is certainly a vocal Sonic track...and it's not one of the more interesting or standout ones imo.
Logic ~ Truth of the Crime Scene - Ace Attorney Investigations 2 (6.5/10) This has a nice groove to it, but especially in the first section it feels more like background than anything else.
Apocalypsis Magnatus - Final Fantasy XV (8/10) A nice sounding epic track, although at a couple points I was wondering if there were too much going on. Good violin stuff though
Terra - Final Fantasy VI (10/10) One of the best overworld themes. I especially love the use of the woodwind and the air it invokes. And this was composed over 20 years ago!
The Throne - Nuclear Throne (6/10) I think this song would have benefited a bit more with lyrics and/or a slightly slower tempo; it moves really really quickly and I'm not exactly sure what to make of it.

Sonic Heroes - Sonic Heroes: 3/10 Got annoyed of this very quickly. Never really been a fan of Sonic.
Logic - Truth of the Crime Scene - Ace Attorney Investigations 2: 4/10 This bored me. It's chill but it is quite boring imo.
Apocalypsis Magnatus - Final Fantasy XV: 6/10 Incredibly chaotic and that chaos makes it hard to focus on the song. Sounds like an epic boss theme though!
Terra - Final Fantasy VI: 8/10 This was very nice yes.
The Throne - Nuclear Throne: 6/10 Liked this until the voice came in.

Sonic Heroes - Sonic Heroes: 3/10 - this is one of the two Sonic games I have played but that doesn't make me care for the song lol

Logic ~ Truth of the Crime Scene - Ace Attorney Investigations 2: 6/10 - It's ok. I mean I love Ace Attorney music, but this particular track isn't a huge standout to me. Good for what it is, but not one I'd just pull up to listen to.

Apocalypsis Magnatus - Final Fantasy XV: 7/10 - It's nice. As some people have mentioned, it feels pretty chaotic at times, and I didn't really enjoy those points at times. On the whole, though, it's a really interesting track.

Terra - Final Fantasy VI: 6/10 - Nice and relaxing, but sort of in the same boat as the AA track for me. I'm sure it's really nice music to have in the background while playing.

The Throne - Nuclear Throne: 6.5/10 - This is really unique and neat I enjoyed it.

Sonic Heroes - Sonic Heroes — 5/10. SONIC HEROESSSSSSSS this song is the best of all the garbage sonic songs
Logic ~ Truth of the Crime Scene - Ace Attorney Investigations 2 — 8.5/10. Background music, but damn good background music that fits the mood perfectly.
Apocalypsis Magnatus - Final Fantasy XV — 8/10. This was great. Was simply EPIC seems perfect for a final boss type of thing.
Terra - Final Fantasy VI — 6.5/10. Nice, calming, relaxing. I enjoyed this.
The Throne - Nuclear Throne — 7/10. I think when you think of the noises the guy is making as an instrument to go along with the western feel rather than vocals, it makes it a alot better. Nice vibe this gives off.

Terra - Final Fantasy VI: (10/10) ;-;7

The Throne - Nuclear Throne: (9/10) Coincidentally I've been super into guitar music lately.
