🛠under construction🛠 Talkcordhaus VGM Guessing Contest 23: Guess it Your Own Dang Self!

Post by Reecer7 »

We here at Viddatunes Construction are SICK TO DEATH of all these guessing contests where the creator makes all your guesses for you and everyone gets full points. There are just so many! We are putting a stop to this and building from scratch an all-new type of guessing contest where you gotta GUESS IT YOUR OWN DANG SELF!!

Preliminary Walkaround
-We got 60 tracks for you to guess what game they're from!
-Just 1 of them is a sus amogus imposter that hails from no video game!
-Guessing the video game a track is originally from gains you 2 points! And I mean track as in master, not composition (though obviously I don't care about nitpicking between ports or remasters).
-Guessing the series a track is originally from gains you 1 point! Spiritual sequels will count for this if the game's got no proper series of its own.
-Guessing the imposter counts for 5 points, because everyone at Viddatunes is so proud of you, but you can only make one guess at it!
-Double points for being the only one to guess a game correctly!
-If you've previously held out on VGM guessing contests because you only get like 2 correct, I really hope you try this one out and enjoy it. I made a concerted effort to keep a decent amount of them pretty recognizable and guessable. 16 of these I have personally determined are "easy", which to me means I expect at least 50% of people here to get them, if not immediately then at least after some chin-scratching. So if I'm anywhere near right, you're guaranteed like 16 points! And if not, you will get a compensatory invitation to my will reading.

The Gimmick
It's level editors! 11 out of the 60 tracks are featured in games with level or map editors. That's it! That's the gimmick!

Your Tools
Don't be fooled by the title; I don't expect you to do this alone. You can purchase tools to help you build it up! Tools can do one of two things:
  • Ask for a hint on one track. You only get one hint per track!
  • Pick three tracks to learn which of those three conform to the gimmick, if any.
-The first 2 tools are free!
-The next 2 tools cost 1 point.
-The next 2 tools cost 2 points.
-I am not giving you more than 6 tools. That's plenty to fill a toolbox.

Roadmap to Public Opening
Send your guesses (and tools) to me via PM (or DM on Discord if you see me) by March 23rd, 2023, 11:59 PM CST! That's 10 pm for California. You can update your guesses until then, but I'll just take what you last sent me.

Now's your chance! Click on the safely secured shipping container below to download all the tracks at once in a helpful zip file, or if you want the tracks individually and conveniently you caOH MY GOD THE TRACKS

first time thru i have successfully positively identified two songs and they're like the easiest and obvious ones on the entire list but i have a few others i recognize and need to pull names out of the aether for

but i will say i feel like this is one of the better-sounding collections of 59+1 vgm song snippets i've heard in these contest
i've honestly never played a video game in my life

I do know more songs in this one than in any of the other contests. But it's still only like, 5 or 6.

Loving the batch of snippets from this contest, a lot of varied tracks and some bangers. I just sent my initial guesses and a first hint request. Good stuff, Reecer!

Ten on the first pass. Don't have too many more I think I'll get, but I do like landing a couple from games I've never even played just because of how distinct the instrumentation is.

🔔🔔A week left!!!🔔🔔

If you've been sitting on the same list of guesses for the past two weeks, perhaps it's time to think about sighing and sending them in! Or perhaps ask for moooore hints!

I didn't send in any guesses, but i listened to all the tracks and #16 was driving me crazy until i realized it only sounds familiar because it was in a previous VGM guessing contest and was apparently catchy enough to remember hearing it then.

Oh, I missed this. I haven't been on here in a long time, but I think I would've only known two w/out any help. Was #22 Super Tecmo Bowl? #52 was Adventure Island.

There's one coming later on, I think? You can ask for help, it's no problem. I just don't because I don't take these seriously, but I really should ask for hints more. Take care Lespy
