Well, first off I think it would have been better if you started it off.
Second, wouldn't it be better if one person rated it and post their own? Sort of like The wish game and the avatar/signature rating game in their follow-ups.

But sense there is none to rate, I guess I will start it off with even more 8-bit music. 8P

That's actually pretty good. I think the fact that I've never played Mega-man only adds to that value.

Looking at the comments of the video, it was probably just someone else doing it from the other side of the turn-table.

Well I guess I just like holy sounding music and violins. I love .Hack// :3 Also, I had it set on a track that changes automatically so yea, the second one was strange if by chance that was what you meant.

It has pretty nifty animations but I rather like music without the videos. I give it a 65/100
I hope someone else tries this forum game.

I'm a fan of JRPG's but never tried the "tales of" series. Nice little anime music video though. Kind've reminded me of Dynasty warriors for some reason...

Interesting visuals, and a catchy tune. Brings me back to the days of my youth when games were far different than today. Spectacularly done music layering and a very nice tune. For some reason, this got me thinking of the old game called "Loom" for computers.

86/100. Not perfect, but still really darn good. I was certainly impressed.

I really like that upbeat feel to it, sounds like an older Pheonix Wright game somewhat! I could imagine playing some sort of 16-bit game (in particular, Super Castlevania) to that theme!

80/100 It had a catch tune to it I must say, not something I would listen to repetitively like I do other things though. I honestly don't know why this is.

This time, I could imagine hearing that song whilst playing Sonic the hedgehog! A techno stage, like the casino that's appeared in a lot of the games! I really like the sterio effects, and the theme is really cool. The part in the middle is awesome though! As if it is getting to the end of a big boss battle! Really enjoyed this one, no doubt about it!

80/100 It sort of was like the previous, it was very catchy but it is not something I would search for to listen to again. Not very memorable you can say. (I did not look at the pictures so I may have missed out on something there.

You mentioned Castle Vania so I suppose.....

That's probably my fav' of all the super nintendo themes! Duuuu duuu duuu, dudu duuuu dudu duu du du! I can't say how much I enjoy that theme in all of it's 16-bit glory! So very memorable, and so very chilling! A sense of excitement, and of adventure! It is of a nice length and doesn't get boring!

100/100!

Awesome song yet again...but sounds rather similar to the other one you just put on. Again, I like it, and it has that awesome memorable theme! It's a shame this is so much shorter but I'd love to play any game to this.

Halo? Yeah!
Brawl? Yeah
Spyro? Deffinatly yes!

90/100, if only becasue it sounds very familiar.

I like that song. Kinda felt like a sailor song, with elements of rock music that I enjoy! The rhythm feels almost perfect, and I like folk music! I'm surprised and ashamed to have not heard of music like that before :)

99/100 (I'm not sure what...but somewthing's preventing me from giving it 100...)

This is one of my fav' songs on youtube that's made by youtubers!

98/100 You and me both... I loved how they used 4 simple sounds one one of the instrument players to form such a relaxing song.

You don't need to look at the video. More Swedish music! Nostalgia at its finest.

Perfect. It has great relazing vocals, and awesome instruments. I really think this is the type of relaxing music I just love. It has the perfect amount of rock and folk, for me to love it. I can't think of a single improvement...

...it's making me fall to sleep...

A little more rock is needed here, sorry ;)

75/100 It was not bad, but that sure as heck is not my philosophy. The guitar solo was not very impressive. Good beat to the song however.

Makai Kingdom (Alexander God of Destruction) Took me a while finally find an up-beat song from a game I liked.

A song that I know and love as well! I'll describe it the same way I did when I first heard it. It's unique. I've never heard so many odd sounds go togeather with vocals that are always the same tone, before I've heard that song! It felt amazing, and I just didn't expect anything like it to work.

I began wondering when the high pitched sound at the start would end, but the melody was amazing. It was very relaxing, and felt like it should be in a nice movie (I was thinking it should've played during the opening theme of 'Two Brothers'). It's a shame I'm not into that type of music, because I enjoyed listening to it.

Really cool song, I didn't actually know it was by Coldplay regardless of the vast amount of times I've heard it... But anyway very soulful and easy to listen to.

Score - 94/100

Would you believe Nirvanna is a band I find hard to listen to? 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' is the only song that I can stand by them (even then...it's only for the guitar. I still find it to be quite repetitive). All I can say, is this song, 'Love Buzz', is great...if you like listening to the same thing over and over with slight variation. I can't say I disliked it as such though...but it's not my cup o' tea. Since I know Nirvanna are a good band (but aren't in my tatses at all) I feel my opinion is biased to give it such a low score. Nontheless, I'm only gonna be able to give this...

50/100.

My oppinion is very biased though. I'm sure a large amount of people would disagree...but I just dislike them. Maybe if the singer sounded a little cleaner...(Yeah, people like the sound of his voice...but I like clean vocals. Add that to my biased oppinion)

Anyway, Dragonforce - Above the Winter Moonlight

My fav' band. Feel free to get back at me, because I know they can be quite repetitive. They often vary the song itself quite a lot though. You can expect to not hear the same thing again, if you know what I mean.

Oh lord, Dragonforce... I definitely have a biased view on them :twisted: but for the sake on fairness I will look at this song with fresh eyes...

Starting off really nice and harmonic (like most of their songs) with some shredding guitar and pounding drums. When the vocals kick in, they really lift the song and make it very fun to listen to. But now we have reached some keyboard sections. A little too gentle for my liking as a rock song should kick butt from start to finish, even during the quiet sections (in my opinion). Ah, the solos. My least favourite part of their songs. But I have been converted after listening to this song, the dual guitars ripping across their frets like demons possessed. And as the end of the song looms, the vocals kick back in and some synth is added for effect. The harmony of a Dragonforce song is unrivalled to that of any other, I'll give them that...*

Phew, done. Overall, I give that song a 83/100 for a valiant effort at making me a fan. However, I need less generic tapping and more skill in the next songs if I am to forgive them for their Guitar Hero anthem.

And here is your next song guys!

*This whole section may seem a little rushed; that is because I wrote it while the song was playing :D
