Cool, so I've been kicking around bringing this to MU for ages, but we're finally doing it. Back in 2009, spearheaded by @arthurgolden, members of the now defunct Final Fantasy Shrine forum began a series of knock-out tournament games for video game music. It has run continuously since, successfully ported to the Squid Board community after FFShrine closed. Participation there has been lacking lately though, and it's time for a new home.
The process is pretty simple. Every 3 to 7 (cough sometimes 14 cough) days, I'll post links to songs or soundtracks paired head to head. You vote, and eventually we get a winner for the themes in play. The Final Fantasy music game I've been cross-running here for a few years originated from this, so some of you might be familiar. This one runs at a much slower pace and is maintained year round.
If you're interested in building your own game, go right ahead! We typically run two at a time and vote on which to host next. I'll put up a discussion thread for organizing these in a bit. The post below will have links to information on what games we've had before. I decide match-ups via random.org, but you're welcome to propose a custom sort for any game you build.
I can't promise time to research and error check these, so if you find an error or bad link, just let me know. Sometimes I lift the credit information straight from the YouTube videos, so take them with a grain of salt.
This game has been running for a looooong time. Counting the Final Fantasy annual, we're launching games 57-59 this month... I think. Counting is overrated. Enjoy!
