Very uplifting. Feels like it belongs in the ending scene of an anime or an artsy game, trying to mix classic melodrama with more modern music. I'm not too moved by it, but it's evocative, I'll give it that

Me!

Here, I've bolded people with a full set of 20 (or 26, in JB's case), and italicized people with 5 or less noms. Nobody has managed to escape this tier unscathed... with the exception of me, of course. For the record, I nominated a song that I had never heard before (and which didn't exist until after the contest started).

The pace is going to slow down from here on out. I'll be doing 10 songs/day for a while, with generally more detailed (but not necessarily more useful writeups). I'm fairly confident about the placement of these songs, though it isn't until we get to 8+ Personal scores that I've actually made a hard, comparative ranking of them all. Remember, we're now operating so that Deserved songs get a .5 bonus

Onto Tier "slorsp"!

7.5 (7.5/0)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fq2vAaU-Kng
Good Mortal Kombat intro. It's certainly gothic. This isn't anything *too* special. I think it has a weakness in being a little predictable and generic ("generic" in a more literal sense, in that it sticks to its genre pretty straightforwardly). No individual aspect really excels; it's all-around solid, jack-of-all-trades. I've totally heard it somewhere before.

Nominator: @pyresword
7.5 (7.5/0)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O_DvJwakV4I
sadvnpiano.mp3. Feels very familiar. It's Hope but better. It's bugging me that I can't place this. Does it touch me because I've heard it before and I'm implicitly making a connection to that, or have I not heard it and the melody is simple and powerful enough to get to me even without context? I'm kind of rating it in the average of the two scenarios.

Nominator: Neotelenta

Very atmospheric, and that flute does some real good stuff. Piano is nice too. Unfortunately, the flute and piano are too much of the song. This absolutely nails the effect it's going for, which happens to not be an effect optimized for listening. I'm sure it's amazing in-game. ah ah. ah ah. ah ah.

Aren't you happy? Aren't you excited? You're going to be free

I'm divorced enough from my playthrough of the game that this song is nostalgic but doesnt have as strong an emotional impact, and without the feels, it's nothing remarkable, aside from brilliant motif usage. But damn this was a great scene

An extremely pretty song. I can tell you this from afar. It shouldn't be terribly surprising that this isn't the kind of prettiness I tend to adore in music. I'll cheer on the game as its soundtrack gets lauded and laureled, and then never listen to its music again.

This song has very strong meme potential
oh yeah by the way, at some point a while after i nominated this, i realised that this actually was stock bgm after all... it's actually not even intended for video games, but tourism ads and it costs about $50 to use. notably though, it's about 50% faster in this game for whatever reason and sounds a lot better, so i guess it's technically still a valid song?

I hate you arti.

I think this might be the best vocaloid you nommed (it's redundant to say this since you'll have the benefit of seeing the rankings I know shut up). I don't hate this, and would even go so far as to say that the vocaloids add to the song. They fit contextually. It helps that they're very subdued relative to what they usually are. As for the song itself, it sounds like Anamanaguchi, or at least Scott Pilgrim. In other words, not wonderful, but at worst, inoffensive

438. Super Mario Galaxy - Buoy Base Galaxy
Nominator: @PrinceKaro
7.5 (7.5/0)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z29bt-wjS88
It's *almost* exceptional. Almost. It tries, it really does. That part at 1:37? That's it trying *so hard*. But the little engine just can't make it to the top of the hill...

438. Fez - Glitch
Nominator: Collen
7.5 (7.5/0)

Exactly what it says on the tin. I got a lot of Fez songs, huh?

Thanks, I tried my best.

I unironically like the SiivaGunner Mario Party 2 remix of Buoy Base better than the original.

There are plenty of genuinely good siivagunner rips. I think this one has a bit more personality. Dunno if it'd actually do better

438. Marble Blast Ultra - Marble Blast Ultra
Nominator: Collen
7.5 (7.5/0)
https://youtu.be/-71bPX1cH8o
I've been listening to this for years, after saving it after hearing it in SiIva's 100th guessing game. Unfortunately, it's become one of those songs that I never delete yet skip almost every time I hear it. Whatever appeal it once had for me has mostly worn off. I still enjoy it when I actually hear it. It's just not something I really want to listen to in stead of something else I like

438. Sonic Tetris - Marble Zone
Nominator: Collen
7.5 (7.5/0)
https://youtu.be/UDLem3hes18
Cool melody. I dunno what else to say just listen to it I think you'll get what I mean :^)))))))

oh my god two marble songs!!

438. Ragnarok Online - Welcome Mr Huang
Nominator: @MargaretAnnMid
7.5 (7.5/0)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pm_lsSaHCHQ
"by SoundTeMP" literally in the video description. Check your fucking composers. This sounds nothing like Yoko Kanno (and she wasn't even on this game). I see why Mycro gets so upset about this kind of thing. It's intensely frustrating

438. Toy Story 2: Buzz Lightyear to the Rescue - Al's Penthouse
Nominator: @Dragon66116
7.5 (7.5/0)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wd7LjYksLDo
Decent if not fantastic western piece. Could see it as a lesser, largely-forgotten song in a Morricone soundtrack

438. Final Fantasy X - Challenge
Nominator: Thomas
7.5 (7.5/0)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ySgAB9cIyOU
I've always thought the intro was sick but it doesn't really go anywhere, unfortunately. If it did evolve better, it'd to be a top FFX song. Man, rip not-potato-quality FFX uplaods

438. Fallout 4 - Main Theme
Nominator: Thomas
7.5 (7.5/0)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kzvZE4BY0hY
I like how it's strangely hopeful at the very beginning before transitioning into the Fallout motif. This seems like it should be the ending theme of Marvel's Fallout, not the intro to the proper 3D Fallout game with the most hackneyed, ill-constructed story. I suppose this gets to be the best Fallout theme, as it makes me *think* that the story would actually be good, and seeing as they're not all that different, the melancholic piano of this beats the vaguely western feel of NV

438. Endless Legend - War of the Sundered (Gravity Well Remix)
Nominator: @kaonashi
7.5 (7.5/0)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdWk0UprQvk
Kind of boring generic choir save for that weird synth in the background which manages to give it some character. I guess it "feels" like a kaonashi nom, so there's something in there giving it personality. I like it more than I thought I would considering how bland it is in general. The geometric waves about two and a half minute in are a nice touch in this regard. That section on is definitely the best portion of the song. ahhhhh ah ahhhhh

438. Witcher 3 - Hunt or Be Hunted
Nominator: Rob

There's something about the style of the soundtrack that makes even the less spectacular songs like this stand out... wait, this is just Ezio's Family what the FUCK

7.5 (7.5/0)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HL8oQw0nm0M
I'm sure this song shaped the childhood of many people. It's got a strong "start of the adventure" vibe without being too cliched or overdone, and likely really really excited all of those proto-zoomer kids. The aforementioned narm helps a lot in this regard. It gets points for this, even if I don't love the song itself

'this has got to be a jangler nom' - me.

'ok we're really in jangler territory now' - me two years later. Some things never change

Solid, but I'm not infatuated with this, as popular as it may be

438. Atelier Ayesha - Mystic Pendulum
Nominator: @OrangeCrush980
7.5 (7.5/0)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hhtJyuXHKPc
Ayesha is one of my absolute favorite soundtracks, yet I don't know if I've ever voted MARIA in VGMC. The vocal themes don't do it for me. They lack what makes Ayesha so cool for me. Still, I find some pretty enjoyable. I'll listen to Hanashirube when loading the game on occasion. I guess this is second behind Stargazer. By the way, "Twilight Hour" is just the album that they released the vocal songs on. It's still just from Atelier Ayesha

438. Splatoon 2 - Fly Octo Fly
Nominator: @-hotdogturtle--
7.5 (7.5/0)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h1c6JlGiRVg
smoke on the water. I got curious earlier today, and checked to see what playlists people had my PSO2 songs on. One, "1 list of good vgm", had Splatoon 2 next to Custom Robo and PSO. I think my head would explode if I went from Funky Radio to Panic Cube to this to Tricktrack part 1. Anyway, this is probably the best Slapton song I got (you'll know if this is case better than I do now), which is to say that it's fairly good despite basically everything about it

HEY IT'S THAT SONG! Not as captivating as the SMB2 Overworld, but at least reaches towards it
