Default Congratulations!

Congratulations to the winners! Good job!

This was a pretty interesting challenge. I listened to quite a number of songs and *knew* that I had heard them before, but it was so difficult to pin them down. I ended up with something like seven or eight clear positives (and didn't participate due to that low number). But now that I've read the solution, I should've recognized twice the number. I was somewhat surprised that I couldn't recognize (9)-Pirates!, given that this game used to be one of my favourites. Then again, the soundtrack does sound a bit different on a PC speaker...

Anyway, great competition!

Great competition, congratulations to the winners, good job to all competitors.

I wouldn't really bothered playing some competition, but i always loved good music including games, so this one hit the spot. When first heard the tunes i thought i wouldn't score more than 10, so i'm satisfied with result, especially because not having sound card back in the mid '90es. One can always do better but can always do worse

There is one thing i didn't like: the range of years was '90-'99. I mean, Quake 2 in abandonia competiton... Oh common, this was supposed to be for old games :P Not to mention that i still play mostly old games, don't really bother with new ones

Thanks to Kosta, i heard some old lovely tunes and some new ones for me. Also, Colonization really hit me, since i played this with sound ONLY ONCE IN MY ENTIRE LIFE, and that was at my neighboor's on Amiga... I remember i didn't even care what was he doing in the game, i just listened to the music and completely forgot about it later. And i played Colonization a lot but with no sound. Man, i could actually spend my entire life and miss this tunes completely

Great stuff, love game music

The number of boobytraps I installed on my land is certain to discourage even the most determined tax-collector.
And then there's cats. Make that, attack cats. :P

Talking Mine too!

And my DS came in too. Kosta sent it to a friend of mine eons ago, and such friend finally came to visit us here in Brazil. Pity we do not have WiFi anywhere near us... But it is lovely indeed.

Finally! I was wondering what happened, not to DS, but to you
Everything is fine. Great!

Oh, thanks for the nice comment. I am still lurking as usual, and wondering if I should throw a competition and give away a couple of my old PC games -- you know, those that nobody buys on Ebay, not even for $0.01.... Anybody wants my copy of Final Fantasy VII?






Just kidding, of course. :cheesy: The games I want to get rid of are more like Crusaders of Might and Magic, Hyperblade, and Interstate 76 Nitro Riders...
