Here are my guesses. Almost all of them are wrong, but there are a few I'm sure got right!
Why am I so bad at these? Welp, here's a go:

1--Start off easy to lull me into a false sense of security? Tetris

2--AND the not knowing begins. This'd totes fit in a metroid. Maybe...Metroid Prime

3--I can't decide if this is the fire level or the mech level of whatever game this is. I dunno. Final Fantasy I

4--this is kinda calm and relaxing. Is it the Kinda Calm and Relaxing Game?

5--I like this track. Some sort of castle theme? I dunno. Final Fantasy II

6--This one's nice too, if a bit boring. Nice surprise vocals at the end there. I dunno. Final Fantasy III

7--Another tune I like. I don't know the games you know, but you have fine taste. Final Fantasy IV

8--I'm gonna be open and honest about googling the lyrics here. If that's cheating, don't give me points. If it's not, this is Left4Dead 2

9--Ba da da da da du du dum. Googling these lyrics won't help. Could be something from like, Katamari or something.

10-Oh, I know another one, but I'm having some trouble placing it. This is why I hate these things >:( I MAY ask for a hint here, but I also may be able to generate it on my own, in time.

11-I don't know this at all and yet I'm pretty confident it's from Jet Grind Radio because I know the JSRF soundtrack real well (this isn't on that), and it fits too well.

12-This sounds very vaguely familiar. Another hint contender? Sounds like a genesis tune.

13-Nope. Don't know it either. Final Fantasy V

14-Every song with Japanese lyrics has to be from Persona, right?

15-Nope. Final Fantasy VI

16-An NES classic. Not that I know what it is, but you can tell. I have to guess an NES game at random now....Princess Tomato in the Salad Kingdom

17-A nice village theme. From....Animal Crossing. Yup. Uh huh.

18-beep beep beep boop (boop boop boop). Final Fantasy VII

19-some sort of very silly game, must be. Like, Glover silly. I'm pretty sure it's not that though.

20-a water theme? Maybe...a water theme from a zelda game, I'm woefully unfamiliar with the zelda series. The Legend of Zelda...uh...3

21-uhhhh...final fantasy VIII

22-this sounds sweet. What's this from? Tell me.

23-I dunno but it's a bit repetative, eh?

24-Why do you have so many I don't knowwwwww :( Final Fantasy IX

25-Again, googled the lyrics. I'd've probably guessed a monkey island if I hadn't. This is from Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies

26-This....this is from Aladdin, isn't it? I'm pretty sure.

27-This one is boring again!!! Final Fantasy X

28-Oh but this one's exciting and fun! But I don't recognize it.

29-Some sort of sneaking sneaky game. Spy Fox in: Dry Cereal

30-This could be anything!! You know what, I know I'm getting it wrong anyway, THIS IS THE INTRUDER

31-this is kinda calm and relaxing. Is it the Kinda Calm and Relaxing Game2: Back in the Habit?

32-oh man, no idea. Mortal Kombat 6

33-nope! Final Fantasy X-2

34-Totes a mega man. Totes. Mega Man...uh...7

35-THIS GAME IS TOO HARD. By this game I mean the music guessing game, not whatever game this song is from.

36-This is a good song but I bet the game it comes from isn't! I dunno why. Probably some adventure game.

37-Could fit in a non-canonical spin-off from the sonic series. Like, Sonic Pinball Party (not to be confused with the vastly superior Sonic Spinball)

38-I dunno. NiGhTs into Dreams?

39-Final Fnatasy XI

40-Smooth. This track is smooth. Smooth Moves Game

41-Final Fantasy XII

42-This one could be familiar, I think I've heard this somewhere before. Not sure....

43-Oh, fun and excitment abound. Totes F-Zero

44-Googled again. Major League Baseball Featuring Ken Griffey Jr

45-Another fun one! That vaguely might sound like I've heard it once...

46-I'm running out of final fantasys...Final Fantasy XIII

47-A jungle game of some sort...could be Donkey Kong Jungle Beat

48-A boss theme? But not a final boss, but close. Like, the final bosses apprentice, or maybe even the guy you think is the final boss before the big plot twist.

49-A nice song for an endgame of some sort...

50-Nope again. Final Fantasy XIV

51-Super Scary Scare Time: The Game

52-Uh huh. Uh huh. This song is strange. I dunno how I feel about it...

53-I had a rule earlier. Every song with japanese lyrics is from Persona.

54-Ending on a really ease one to lull me back into a false sense of confidence? I would recognize Grant Kirkhope anywhere. But is it Kazooie or Tooie? I'm somewhat confident This is Banjo-Kazooie, the first. But I'm not 100% sure. This one may change pending research.

55-Super Mario Land, yeah?
I then asked for hints on 12 and 45, and eventually sent in this follow up:
Cool. 12 has to be Parodius with that hint, right? And I totally did realize what 10 is from just now after listening again after a break, it's Dust!

45 I had to do some googling, but the hint narrowed it down enough to make that possible. I've never played burning force, so any part of me that thought I recognized it was wrong, but still good to know.

That may be a territorial difference; I know it as Jet Set Radio but I know other people know it as Jet Grind Radio since the original NA release was under that name.

Also am I seriously the only person with revealed answers thus far to have played BlackThorne?

So... I only made guesses on tracks that I knew or I had an idea for a guess. This isn't how I wanted to approach this, as I enjoy trying to come up with something for each track, but I was preoccupied with something else and I just didn't have much time left by the time I got to this VGM contest. But I really wanted to submit answers because I wanted to demonstrate that
if you include tracks with words and lyrics, I will search them and hunt them down, whether in English or in Japanese.
(8, 11, 14, 25, 44, 53)
Despite that, I think I got #8 incorrect, with Google giving me wrong results...

I also didn't know #9 or #12. I just answered them with what I thought were plausible guesses based on the VGM styles. I would be pleasantly surprised if they turned out to be correct.

Answers
1. Tetris

3. Blackthorne

5. Destroy All Humans?

8. (Intruder)
9. Rhythm Heaven

11. Jet Set Radio
12. Parodius

Hints
3. Gotta love those classic Blizzard games on SNES.

47. A popular IP returned to its platforming signature style in this Wii title.

Some hints that haven't come up yet from other people:
7. Wouldn't making a boring board game into a video game make it more interesting? ...Yeah no, it wouldn't.

19. This early N64 title centers around the protagonist following a white rabbit into a hole (a la Lewis Carroll). It was only met with mediocre reviews but still spawned a sequel.

21. In this platformer, a comedian was hired to quip one liners for the main character. It was hilarious! ...No, actually it got old quick. Maybe that's why this series hasn't had another entry since 1999.

24. RPGs in my board games? It's more likely than you think.

33. This Dreamcast RPG was highly praised. It ended up getting ported to the PS2 and PC...but those versions didn't rate nearly as highly.

sounds kinda like Blasto?
I should post the hints I got too
12. This game is a very clear parody. Hell, it pretty much spells it out in the title!

27. In this 2016 title, two princesses from warring nations decide to put their differences aside a put on a concert. ...Or at least they mention it...

36. This title was originally released in 1980, but received an update in a 2002 compilation of sorts (where this track is from).
Couldn't place 36 at all until the hint after which I found it in like 3 minutes so thanks for that

Ah, if we're posting hints too, here's the only one I got that I haven't seen posted yet:
45. This Namco arcade shooter got a port to the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis. The critics agree, it was very ...well...mediocre.
