Insert Credit Game & Sounds Poll for Videogame OSTs and Audio ***RESULTS!***

Apologies for the delay in getting further results available. I had two optical appointments on Friday that resulted in extremely dilated pupils / being unable to read text on screens properly, and I‘ve been visiting my parents this weekend. What I’m doing requires a lot of stop-start typing, searching and referencing however there's some interesting stuff coming out of it already.

What a forum of weirdos

Here‘s a quick breakdown of votes by decade. The original post has detail on individual years, but I thought it may be interesting to see things grouped like this (mostly to see just how far in front the 90’s were)

Regarding the above post, I have tried to come up with a way of formatting / presenting multi-tiered pivot table data that won‘t be 100% unreadable here on the forum. Here’s a look at country of origin and release platform, tallied by decade of release. It is a lot easer to read in a spreadsheeting tool that provides indentation and ruler lines to help show nesting and grouping, but I hope the bold and the vertical spacing can achieve a similar effect here.

I had to put it in its own post because I was running up against maximum length limits for a single post, and couldn't fit any commentary along with it.

(I haven't looked at what a mobile browser does to this, apologies if this ends up as just an incomprehensible jumble of text and numbers)


___

I think next it would be interesting to try and parse and split the comma delimited columns (country, platform, composer mainly) and find a way to regroup common values. eg, "Windows PC" and "Windows PC, Nintendo Switch" would count as 2 for "Windows PC" rather than being distinct entries.

Some big wall of text here but it‘s mostly for additional context. This is a ranked list of individual teams or composers who have had the most number of games from their catalogue voted for in the poll. I’ve kept the minimum cited here as two different games as, frankly, the list of people with only one game voted for is both very long and dull save for a handful of exceptions who will appear in my next list. It would also take me forever to pull that info all together manually.

There are some very minor caveats to where there is an incomplete list of credits on Wikipedia, and depending on how you count certain people / teams (namely Falcom JDK and Zuntata) but I've done my best to be sensible here. I've also filled in some gaps that weren't in the spreadsheet so there should be some marginally more accurate data.

Numbers in (brackets) are the number of their games cited.

  • My second list is slightly shorter, and comprises of individuals who had the most votes. Again I filled in some gaps that were empty in the spreadsheet to make the available data slightly more accurate.

    In this case I've only included those that received a minimum of four votes in total. Anything below that, again, is too long a list and simply not interesting at that point. This list includes the top 56 individuals and teams, which is as good as anyone could expect to remain interesting.

    The number next to the name is the total number of votes across all of their games voted for, and the game name in (brackets) is the game that either received the most votes from their catalogue or is joint-highest with one or more others.

    ### 10+ votes:

  • - Asuka Sakai: 21 (Katamari Damacy)

  • - Toshiko Tasaki: 4 (Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne)
  • - Yasuhisa Watanabe: 4 (Elevator Action Returns)
  • Notable results from this list:

  • - Despite coming third in the number of games voted for, Koji Kondo only has 8 votes for his 7 games. Similar results also appear for Falcom Sound Team JDK, Zuntata, and Michiru Yamane, who all have the same number of votes as the number of games that they were voted for (i.e. exactly 1 vote per game voted for).
  • - Conversely, June Chikuma, Lena Raine, Kohta Takahashi, and Koji Nakagawa all qualify into this list from a single game.
  • - If we were to remove all votes for Katamari Damacy, of the six team members involved in that game, only Asuka Sakai would qualify for this as they worked on Ridge Racer Type 4, which received 5 votes. This would also happen if the same was done for Earthbound votes.
  • - Only five people in this list are non-Japanese: Darren Korb (who ranked highest with 8 votes), David Wise, Richard Jacques, Lena Raine, and Toby Fox.

    @“LeFish”#p75734 Kazumi Totaka (5): Animal Crossing, Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Forecast Channel, The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, Wii OS

    are these some of the "not even video games" ? @Gaagaagiins

    Beautiful work @Gaagaagiins, @rejj, and @LeFish!! <3 Drinking in all the data… quenching thirsts I didn‘t know I had ||(though I did specifically want to know the full tally of everyone’s “iconoclasm points,” thanks rejj)||

    Love the recognition for non-JP/US contributions in the OP, what delightful photos

    In answer to an earlier question, I have played/simmered the meat off the bones of every game on my list with the exception of Splinter Cell 3, of which I've played a grand total of maybe 5 minutes, and which to me is just an album by Amon Tobin. According to various Youtube uploads of the full soundtrack the album doesn't even compose half its runtime. I ended up including it because it _is_ a game soundtrack and I have listened to it _a lot._

    Feeling weird about not listing Chrono Trigger (for many (of my teen) years I would have said with certainty this was my favorite OST) nor Pathologic 2 (the most potent audiovisual experience I've had with a game in some time), but that's what the next poll is for.

    @“rootfifthoctave”#p76092 are these some of the “not even video games” ? @Gaagaagiins

    Oh! I actually overlooked the Forecast Channel. Will update the count of non-videogames.

    ...unless someone wants to make the argument that the Wii's weather forecast app is somehow a videogame.

    There was also _Chrono Trigger: The Brink of Time_ as well as _Wild Arms: Music the Best,_ which are cover albums of videogame soundtracks and not videogame soundtracks themselves. I chose not to count them as votes for the games they were associated with, not to discredit the idea of arranging videogame music, but out of respect for the process of adaptation. Plus, it would make our poll objectively incorrect, because we didn't say that [_Perfect Selection: Dracula Battle I_](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=48GC0QOgNyg&list=PL540B8BE83D4AD842&index=4) is the greatest videogame soundtracks of all time (thanks @"JoJoestar"#251, still absolutely reeling over how much this fucking rocks).
