Hey,

Congrats on the Song Game win.

As winner you can either pick a category for the next game or choose to leave it an Open Game.

Can you let me know by 7pm tomorrow what you'd like to pick.

Title: Go Play Your Video Game

Some of the most beautiful, moving, and meaningful music I've ever heard has come from...video games. Surprising I'm sure but video games have become a legit medium for composers to make beautiful music and I think it's time they got a little love.

The song has to be a song or a composition featured in a video game. In addition, the song can be a medley composed by other people on youtube so long as all the songs contain songs from a video game. They can also have different arrangements than the original, provided that the arrangement is one based off an original song from a video game.

So, BASICALLY, whatever song you nominate, it just has to be featured in a video game, whether they be covers, different arrangements, medleys, etc. is fine so long as the songs are all taken from songs featured in video games.

Title is a Lana Del Rey reference btw stream Norman Fucking Rockwell out August 30th.

Is there a web page/site with a link of some songs that have been used in video games - there's bound to be some people who don't know of some.

^This is an EXTREMELY comprehensive youtube playlist for people. However, I understand that people probably don't want to go mucking through all that so:

THE ORIGINS OF THE GAME

Some time ago one of the nicest guys on the forum Sergio (sfar) tested out an idea he had for a Song Game, which involved people nominating a song – then at the end of it the songs were listed and people voted on their top three songs.

A few months later, as a Eurovision Song Contest nut, I had the thought of bringing the Eurovision element into it along with the voting system used there. We jointly once did some TT Olympic and TT Football specials and always made a great team so I checked with Sergio that he was OK for me to expand on his original idea, which he was, along with adding an interactive element of an interview with all participants about the songs and the game in general where everyone could put forward ideas and suggestions about the game, it's all really thanks to Sergio that this game started :worship: .

I once did a TT Eurovision special and gave the winner a heart-attack when I informed him that the Eurovision tradition is that the winner hosts the following year - instead the winner picks the next category.

Following that on 14th November 2013, the first ever TF Pick The Best Song Game was started.





HOW TO JOIN IN AND PLAY THE GAME


1. Send me a PM with any song that relates to the category above - along with the You Tube link if possible – MAKE SURE YOU CHECK THE SONGS USED LIST TO CHECK THAT THE SONG HASN’T BEEN USED BEFORE

2. Make clear which is the song title and which is the artist.

3. When the deadline is over, I'll post all the songs in the thread (without the name of the user who sent it) for everyone to vote.

4.The song that gets the most points wins the game. In the event of a tie the song with the most 12 points will win, if that number is the same then it's the most 10 and so on.


For those who haven’t played before, anyone is welcome to play – here’s a link to all previous games which are housed at the TF Pick The Best Song Game Sub-Forum to see how it works :-

RANKINGS POINTS

The following rankings points are given at the end of each game :





Although the game didn't immediately start at one every week, it was fairly early in the run of games that it became a weekly game, so to make things simple I've counted every game as one week.

Rankings are compiled from the last 52 games - the best 16 scores during the last 52 games count to the players total ranking.

With huge thanks and acknowledgement to Markus for doing a lot of the inputting of and clearing the then backlog :worship:

It's donkey Kong's years since I played a video game. Can someone give me a clue how I go about finding something for this? If not, I'll sit it out.
