Dang, I goofed up and waited till the last minute to get together my guesses for the vgm contest. It's well past the deadline so I know these won't be accounted for, but this is what popped up in my mind as I listened to the snippets over the months when occasionally visiting the thread.
7 beatmania GB2 - Catch You Catch Me (A pleasant surprise to see a CCS song appear)
10 Shantae and the Pirate's Curse - Cackle Tower (Some castlevania ass looking ass skelepeople)
23 Persona Q2 - Road Less Taken (Lotus Juice has that particular ring to his voice, along with Shihoko Hirata and Mrs Kawamura)
25 Gurumin - Meter Corridor (sometimes all you need to be a hero is a drill)
32 Bravely Second - This would be good too! (weird thing was I knew this song by the name of "I'll take this one too" and was under the impression it went by that name)
36 Persona 5 - Life goes on (Mmm, recognized that smooth bassline with the trinkling of piano anywhere, it's a nice tune)
59 Persona 4 - Specialist (Honestly, I really like the original far more than the arrange despite the arrange being more recognizable due to memes. Still a great song, just like how it played during midterms in game, I'd often throw on the OST while studying for midterms during Junior High)

Definitely feel a little silly realizing how many songs went over my head despite a couple of listens or actually playing their respective games before, but ah, what happens happens
Great job on hosting this contest this year, it was fun and had some swell picks. My bad on the late guesses, I'll send 'em in at better time for the next one

unrelated but commander douche shoving furry shit into his videos was always fucking obnoxious and came off as incredibly super fucking forced outside of the solatorobo meme comics (source: i am a gay furry)

thank's for the easier contest this time

Private Hint: "Packaged like a rebel or a hero"
Note: I originally meant to score this as an Impostor of DOOM - E1M4 (Kitchen Ace and Taking Names), but the overlap between the two songs is short enough that I was going to get more guesses of Superconductor no matter how I cut it (I would have actually needed to mute the 'vocal' track and at that point the VGM Game stops pretending to be fair). Besides, after what happened with Star Fox The Thread scoring it as a Rush song is more on-brand anyway.
Dang, maybe I should've given this contest a shot.

Anyway related, I'll never get tired of sharing this gem that I found on some sheet music website.

Attached is my scoring spreadsheet along with a bunch of notes. I actually had a pool of ~150 songs to pick from and there was supposed to be one obscure-but-still-in-a-well-known-game song that got left out because I panicked and wanted to get the game off the ground before I had a complete hard drive failure.

I needed private hints for 27 songs, but they only helped me correctly guess two of them. The hint for #5 was pretty obvious. At first I thought it sounded like an 8-bit Kirby game, but I couldn't find a match after skimming through all of those soundtracks. I previously heard a port of #17 in a SMW hack (I don't remember which), so the context clue helped me narrow down the search in SMW Central's music section. Also, for #55, while Koba guessed "Doom", I guessed "Duke Nukem 3D". It really did sound like it was from an FPS game. But I assumed that games didn't repeat, so I picked the next reasonable choice.

Anyway, thanks raekuul for hosting the contest, and for the quick turnaround on the results. It was bold to include a bunch of retro 8/16-bit songs in the mix, especially ones that are arguably well-known. I noticed that the last few VGM contests didn't go to that extreme, presumably because the NES/Genesis/GBA sound can really help narrow things down. I will probably not do this well again in a future contest, haha.
