As per the discussion in this thread, we are doing another opinion poll!
This one will be dedicated to surveying the Insert Credit forums community on their all-time favourite game soundtracks… or… game music compilation albums if you want… or… audio design in a game… or whatever! You decide what a “videogame soundtrack” is.
There was some planning and philosophizing on the initial planning thread about what constituted a videogame OST, and while I erred more on the side of being overly precise, I think I trust you all to make something interesting out of the prompt either way. So, ultimately, what constitutes a game’s soundtrack or audio or whatever is up to you. If the answer to the question isn’t obvious, maybe go back and read that other thread and see if it gives you a better idea.
Click here to be brought to a Google Form for data entry. This will save me the trouble of doing a lot of stuff manually! Well, I’ll still have to do one thing manually but that’s fine.
You are able to edit your list after you submit it. Once you are done, it will give you a link. You need to bookmark that link to edit your response. As far as I can tell there is no way for me to retrieve that link for you! I can delete your response so you can submit it again, but that’s more work for me and you’ll have to start all over.
A few rules and a few suggestions:
- Don’t rank or order your list in any way. Just pick 10 submissions.
- Lists will be considered final as of June 19th, 12:00am EST. That’s when I will close submissions and decouple the spreadsheet from the Form.
- Most of the precision in the data being asked for is just for fun and to do some analysis after. Don’t stress too much about getting everything filled out and precisely accurate.
- The more lists we have the more nuanced and detailed the results will be, so lurkers and new users please participate!
You are also of course more than welcome to post your list here whenever you feel like it, it’s mostly just the results that will not be ready until after the deadline.
By the way, if anything weird happens when you’re submitting your list, just let me know.
As of 7:17pm EST on June 13th, we have 34 responses! The more the better, so keep on submitting!
If you want to have me double check that your submission was received, just @me any time in this thread.
