Introducing - the Guess that NES Song Game! 

In this game, you have to guess all 10 NES Songs in the video below! You get 1 point for guessing the right game, but you get another point if you know the name of the song or accurately describe where the song plays!

Here's the catch! The video is only ~ 5 mins so you're only hearing 29 second samples of each song! All songs are from different video games!

RULES!

Song 1, 2 and 4 have very specific song titles. Please read my second post for more explanation or be specific as possible.

If you're going to guess a game that is a series in the NES, you must specify which game even if its the first one

For example: Final Fantasy I & Final Fantasy II. 

 This clears up any confusion. You will get half a point for guessing the right series even though you got the wrong game.

 All 10 song fades out to help you know when a new song is playing. Because of this you can simply list your your predictions like this:

1. ???

2. ???

3. ??? 

... 

10. ???

... where #1 is the song that appears first and 10 is the song that appears last. I will also ask of you to use spoiler tags like the example above so people won't steal your answer (its in the drop window labeled Styles on the first row of buttons above your post). If you can't do that, then you're out of luck.* 

You can only enter your predictions once! I will later quote your post and give you a score in spoiler tags. I won't tell you which songs you got right though! Not until the end at least!

Game ends whenever the last prediction in the thread is 1 day old or this post is 3 days old. 

Game ends in 12 PM PT (that's Pacific Time!)

Get the highest score before then! I will edit the title if only 3 hours or less is remaining.

Prize:

You may gloat your heart out and people will chant your name in glory to your awesome knowledge of selective NES songs that t3mporary_126 knows.**

Before we begin, here's the link to each song's time stamp:  http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=7323165 

I have provided a timestamp on the youtube page as well.

Now that you've read the rules, let the game begin!

10 classic NES songs! Only 29 seconds to recognize them... Can you get them all right?

*You can also PM me your predicitons if spoiler tags are too cryptic for you to use.

** I am not responsible for you getting banned if you gloat inappropriately. But I will laugh at you for getting banned. So that's like an additional prize!

Highlights:

Song 1: Everyone who guess Zelda II's song title got it right or close enough to be right

Song 2: Mario Bros. 3 song has too many names. But I gave a half point to those who said overworld. But if you said ground theme, you can add 0.5 pts as well. Will need to do further research of Mario Bros. levels before using them.

Song 6: In the beginning, very few people knew song 6 was Ducktales. But as more players entered, almost everyone got the song's game and title correct!

Song 7: I purposely chose the ending part of Metroid - Kraid's lair theme to see if it will trick anyone. And it seemed like it did! It still has pretty even score distribution at 0, 1, and 2 pts.

Song 8: Congrats to Prof and IvorEvilen for getting the game and/or song title right!

Song 9: Wizards and Warriors I was actually composed by David Wise! Looks like only one of you guys may have known this though!

Song 10: Mother shares similar score with Metroid at 0 pts, 1 pt, and 2 pts. In fact, they are actually the same distribution! 

Reflection: I apologize for the rough start! The first three players sort of acted like the guinea pigs of this round. But I will use this experience to make the next game more efficient. So thank you MZuzek, Hiku, and Spemanig for being the first three participants!

I'm also considering to private message scores in the next game. This way future players may not potentially steal answers when they see a high score in spoiler tags. The good news is everyone's predictions in this thread was unique!

The next game probably won't be ready until next Friday. No promises though. If I have not made one then, feel free to do one yourself! 

Thanks again everyone for playing! 



1. Palace Theme from Zelda 2
2. Ground Theme from Super Mario Bros. 3
3. I don't know what it is, but I love it.

5. The thing is, I really haven't played many NES games.
6. But I still get Mega Man vibes from both these songs (5 and 6).

8. nope.
9. nah. (but damn it's pretty nice)
10. I think I know this one from SSB... yeah. It's from Mother, right? Don't know the name of it, though.

Real score6.5  Sorry for being the guinea pig this round!


That was fast! One of the song's name you need to be more specific on. (It's the song that you confidently answered)

But for now, you're score is a 5! I gave you credit for getting the right game. Also congrats for making the first prediction and thanks for playing!

Edit again: Actually there is one more song that you need to be more specific on. And its also the one you answerd confidently

Double edit (sorry): I'm willing to give you half a point more for both songs that I wanted you to be more specific if you can't get it right the second time. I'll add them anyway if you don't respond before the game ends as well.

Each song is different. I didnt state so in the OP earlier so you can change your prediction now. Same with Hiku. Also, its getting late here so I'll update everyone's score tomorrow asap! Thank you and everyone else who has played tonight (Pacific time wise)!



t3mp, I think you need to be a bit less demanding with how specific we need to get. Seriously, I don't even know how I wasn't specific enough with my guesses.

I edited in the specific location for the Zelda 2 song. I'm pretty sure it plays in most temples. As for the one I need to specify, I'll say Wily's Castle Stage 1. If I don't specify the entry of a specific title, I'm refering to the first game in the series. I wanted to guess Ninja Gaiden or Blue Ninja or some other Ninja game on one of these, but it sounded like at least one of them would be from Castlevania as well, so I stuck to that.
