Don't worry Empath. Like it been stated above, nobody is going to win this competition by answering all 42 tunes. Kosta is better check if the guy didn't cheat if that happen.

I find myself in the same situation. Never really had sound, or mostly played hacked versions in my youth which had no sound. However, I have 8 tunes I know for certain. It's only a matter of searching for the others. There is a lot of tunes which remind me something but I can't put the finger on it.

I've got 13 songs identified now, two more I might (might) be getting right but need to make sure.

The problem, as I see it, is that gamers don't play games from every genre. I play RPG's, Adventure and Strategy games only. I don't play retro shooters, I don't play retro puzzle games, etc.

How anyone can play enough different genres as well as enough different games so often they would know all these tunes is so incredibly difficult that I am not even sure these DS's exist and Abandonia intended to give them away!

Ah, but here's the catch: you don't need to guess them _all_to win. You just need to guess more than your rival competitors.

Do you call Kosta a liar, then?

I identified song #13 without using the ID tag too. A shame it's out of the competition...

I was being sarcastic - hence the smiley at the end of the sentence!

If it's the maximum then I think knowing 20+ will win the competition.

I've been playing DOS games since 1990 and I got my first sound blaster 1992, plus I play LOTS of old games, PLUS I have a certain thing about music. I just have to hear it once to remember it for ages. This competition is bringing back a lot of memories.
Some names you have to sleep on to get though. A few of these songs I must've played like 20 times already, knowing the song from before but can't put the name on it.
EDIT: Also, hanging out on OCR for a few years, clicking pretty much every song there helps too.

I know what you mean - #2 did that for me.
