ROUND 3 PT.8 pwease no steppe: Best Game Theme Contest


#162

I wasn’t born in the 80s and the Mega Man 3 theme is actually amazing and isn’t just triggering the nostalgia part of my brain. I didn’t play MM3 until around 2005.

I won’t defend the MM2 opening though.


#163

Was born in the 90s, have never played Mega Man, first time I’ve ever heard this theme, and I can confirm that it is in fact amazing.


#164

The Mega Man music at it best has absurdly good composition, and a surprising amount of variety. It’s not just nostalgia, they’re pretty fantastic.

The PS1 ended this era, sadly.


#165

Born in the 90s, didn’t play any of the NES Mega Man games until I was in my late teens. Easily my favourite music on the whole console. I was actually familiar with remixes before I ever heard the originals, but there’s a good reason that it’s some of the most remixed music in game history.


#166

Don’t have much hope for my pick in this matchup. People seem to love vocals a lot more than I do in general for this competition.


#167

Yeah, the NES Mega Man games have such good music that they can trick people into thinking the games are still fun.


#169

Hey, I’m sorry but Indestructible became the anthem of the entire rebirth of the fighting game genre for a reason.


#170

Five hours, please remember to vote for these match-ups!

RESULTS

Indestructible - Street Fighter IV VS The Silver Case (Akira Yamaoka Remix) - The Silver Case (Remaster) - 8-5

Title - Mega Man 3 VS Rules of Nature - Metal Gear Rising - 7-7
Introduction - Shatterhand VS The Sun Rises - Okami - 1-13

MGR and MM3 will go back for revote due to a tie.

Okami completely burned Shatterhand, SFIV proved indestructible against some SUDA51 madness, and Robo Warrior proved to not be beyond the bounds.

#172

Chrono Cross is such a frustrating game. So many great concepts and Mitsuda’s best soundtrack buried underneath a ton of pointless garbage. I hope if they ever decide on a remake they take a hard look at the things that didn’t work, but I’m not even holding my breath for a remake to begin with. :frowning:

RESULTS

REVOTE: Title - Mega Man 3 VS Rules of Nature - Metal Gear Rising - 7-8

The Last of Us - The Last of Us VS Time’s Scar - Chrono Cross - 5-10

MGR continues on! Chrono Cross is by no means the last of us, Secret of Mana beats Drakengard, Tower of Heaven actually managed to beat SSB of all things, and FREEDOM IS DEAD.

Jeez. Tower of Heaven just baaaareeelly squeaked by, eh? I mean, I played Brawl competitively for like 4 years, but even I just find it to be alright. Tower of Heaven’s, on the other hand, might be the best theme to a flash game out there.

Welp, rip Samurai Gunn and Trails. I would love for those two to have a shot (because I love them both), but they’re up against two heavy hitters. Just going to leave this classic Giant Bomb moment here…

ALIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIVEEEEEEE

THIS ROUND…

Maze of Live - Persona Q VS Main Theme - Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike
Silent Hill Theme - Silent Hill VS Color Pulse - Splatoon 2
Sonic Boom - Sonic CD VS Overture - Dragon Quest VIII
Main Theme - Valkyria Chronicles VS Main Theme - Soul Blazer

Deadline is April 19th by 7PM Central


#178

I feel like the people who vote for Valkyria Chronicles and those who vote for Soul Blazer are the two types of people voting in this contest.


#179

Bad people and good people.

Wish I could have nominated this theme instead but it’s not really a main theme.


#180

We got tie situations popping up, please remember to vote and avoid this!


#181

The Silent Hill/Splatoon one was hard for me. The Silent Hill theme song isn’t good in the sense that I ever want to listen to it, but it’s absolutely perfect at putting you on edge. It’s one of the few themes that you could play for anyone at all with no knowledge or context and they’d instantly get what it was going for. It’s like the music from Suspiria, it sets a mood to perfection but you absolutely do not want to listen to it for pleasure.


#182

Last call! Deadline in two and a half hours!


#183

RESULTS

Maze of Live - Persona Q VS Main Theme - Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike - 10-6
Silent Hill Theme - Silent Hill VS Color Pulse - Splatoon 2 - 6-10
Sonic Boom - Sonic CD VS Overture - Dragon Quest VIII - 12-4
Main Theme - Valkyria Chronicles VS Main Theme - Soul Blazer - 9-6

3rd Strike has been lost in the maze of life, color has been brought to Silent Hill, Sonic boom’ed through Dragon’s Quest, and Valkyria Chronicles beats Soul Blazer.

Also I think I have to especially remind everyone to listen to everything before voting for this match up because …well, look below.
