    I figure we need something new, so how about we combine the terrible opinionated argumentation of music with the many video game showdowns we’ve done in the past?

    And thus, we have the first ever Video Game Music Showdown Extravaganza Event Live!

    Now, the way this is done is simple. We have a bunch of video game music going up against each other on a day to day thing, you vote, one winner.

    The rules are also simple.
    You can nominate any 8 songs from any game, with only one limitation. No licensed music. So, nothing that wasn’t made for the game. Besides that, it can be anything. Just put the name of the song and the game it’s from, and if you want throw in a Youtube or some MP3 link with it. Those’ll all be included when it comes to the actual showdown time.

    But that’s all there is to it! Easy!

    Nominations are open and will close… eventually. If we don’t get enough, I’ll throw in a few and open up extra nominations to whoever wants them.

    Master List:

    Ace Combat: Assault Horizon - Gotta Stay Fly
    Age of Empires II: The Conquerors - The Bovinian Derivative

    Original Legend of Zelda theme

    Mike Tyson's Punch-Out training theme

    Castlevania: Lord of Shadows Vampire Killer theme redone on a music box

    MGS3 Theme

    Mortal Kombat 1 Theme

    MGS4 Theme

    Red Dead Redemption: John Marston Enters Mexico

    Bastion: Set Sail, Coming Home


    As far as all this goes, I'm pretty sure I'm in the safe on everything. It looks like the RDR song was made specifically for the game. And if not for the Licensed thing, this would be at the top of the list. And to be completely honest, it's hard not to love anything that H G-W composes.

    MGS3: Starsailor - Way to Fall

    I had heard that SNES Earthbound wasn't re-released as a downloadable title because alot of the music on that was licensed. Can anybody shed light on this?

    For the purpose of this, I mean if it's like a Linkin Park song or something that they put into the game, or something from like Michael Jackson's Moonwalker. Besides that, I'm lenient.

    I've got some. I'll start off with what I've hailed as the best piece of video game music ever since I first heard it:

    DW6 Empires - Life to the Legend (Credits Theme)

    And now an assortment of not only memorable, but very good sounding tracks. Hope you enjoy them even half as much as I do.

    Spyro The Dragon Theme Song

    Super Mario 64 - Jolly Roger Bay

    TES III: Morrowind - Nerevar Rising (Main Theme)

    LocoRoco - Zappudo Geron (Budzi's Theme)

    Atlantis -The Lost Tales- Theme (Sunriders)
    EDIT: This one's a very close cut-up with this: Atlantis -TLT- La Lune. I just barely have to go with the latter, but I'll leave the other one here, because eargasms.

    MW3 - Servitas Vitae (GIGN Theme)

    Donkey Kong Country - King K. Rool

    Oh, I didn't see it. Oh well.

    Longo, I'm also assuming you'd like to avoid music that is licensed from other adaptations of the IP? For example, the Star Wars theme, used in a billion games but from the movies originally.

    Yeah, let's try not to do any of those.

    And good choices so far. We've got a good number, so let's aim for at least 5 more. The more, the better.
