So we have 20 nominations so far, just 16 to go!

Heigh Ho Heigh Ho. It’s off to work (from home) I go.

We only need 8 more nominations, so would @Link-Hero want to participate? I remember you saying you would love to be proved wrong. After that, if one other person shares their nominations, we should reach the 32 milestone! I’ll advertise in The Chit-Chat Thread.

Heigh Ho Heigh Ho. It’s off to work (from home) I go.

I nominate the title screens for:

Chrono Trigger
Wind Waker
Double Dragon (NES)
Crypt of the Necrodancer

Edit: Since I saw someone above me mention Wind Waker. I’ll put Donkey Kong 64 (Monkey Rap) in it’s place 🐰☝️.

@BabyYoshi12
Sorry, I've been quite busy for the past few days, and I kinda forgot this thread until you shouted me out. So thanks I guess?

Anyway, here's my nominations. These are the best ones I can think of with my limited short time.

Donkey Kong County 2
Majora's Mask
Skies of Arcadia
Terranigma

Well, we have more than 32 nominations, but I feel as though some aren’t main themes, so we’ll just wait for the bracket from @ThePirateCaptain and start the voting!

Heigh Ho Heigh Ho. It’s off to work (from home) I go.

Alright, looks like we got quite a few people participating! I’ll wait a little while to see if more people want to join before setting up the bracket.

If we do get more nominations there are two options: Strictly cut it off at 32 songs so everything is even or create a lopsided bracket where some songs may have a bye round. I’m open to either so let me know which one you guys prefer.

@ThePirateCaptain I don’t know most of these, but I feel as though some aren’t main themes, so look at that while making the bracket. I’m down for either, I’m just glad to participate in a competition!

Looks like everyone has gotten their nominations in so I’m going ahead and creating the bracket now. The first round should be up shortly after that and voting can begin!

On a side note, normally when you post your nominated songs in the thread it’s great if you can include a link to them on YouTube as well. It’s something I completely forgot to mention before. I always post links to the songs we are voting on, it just makes it easier to ensure I’m including the right one. If during any round the song I link is not the correct one just let me know and I can fix it.

@ThePirateCaptain Okay, I will do that! Tell us when the bracket is ready! This is the only thread I follow, so I’ll get notified every time someone posts in it!

Link to the tournament bracket

And with everything set, let the first tournament begin! The seeding was randomized so you can check out the bracket if you want to see where your songs ended up. This first round will be a little shorter since the bracket wasn’t even. Aside from all that, don’t forget to vote in the polls, feel free to share your thoughts on each entry, and of course have fun and enjoy the music.

@ThePirateCaptain It was tough, but I voted on all 3! How long is voting open?

I’ll probably post the next group Friday afternoon since it looks like most people have already voted. One entry is still tied so if you haven’t yet there’s still time!

As for my thoughts on this round:

I’ve never been a huge fan of the main Zelda theme and I think the NES has much better examples of music that fits the sound font. The Skies of Arcadia theme is very relaxed and minimal, but does the job.

Wind Waker simply has one of the best title themes in the series and is a personal favorite of mine. It captures the feeling of whimsy and adventure perfectly and I love the instrumentation. The EO theme instead goes for a much more relaxing and tranquil feeling, like drifting on a calm sea and letting your cares wash away. I love both but Wind Waker edges this one out.

Sonic Rush Adventure has a similar ocean setting to the previous two entries but instead goes full in on the cheese and energy. In a lot of ways it’s what I love about the sonic series, being lighthearted and fun. The Double Dragon theme is good and pumps you up for the game, but I don’t think it’s nearly as memorable. Maybe that’s just because I prefer the version from DD Neon.

My opinions:

I found the Skies of Arcadia rather bland and boring, I much prefer the LoZ.

I like Wind Waker’s folky vibe, but I liked Etrian Odyssey just slightly more.

I just failed to enjoy Sonic, where as I loved Double Dragon.

I’m excited for the next round.
