I was thinking of doing something akin to the NinDB Top 25 without actually showcasing 25 favourite games (because it's not like our opinions are going to change annually). This long video is the result. (See YouTube comments for quick seeking)
I picked my 3 favourite songs per system (without picking the same game twice), and added a few other songs that I like but didn't quite make it. This list can actually go on and on, but I wanted to keep the scope clear.
At first, I was going for top 4 or 5 per system, but I couldn't think of anything good enough for NES and N64 (at least with Nintendo-published games), and the honourable mentions was how I worked around that. On the other hand, I can probably dedicate a section for Dreamcast, but that would look weird in this otherwise Nintendo-centric video.

I like to think music is the philosophy of the soul. I guess that's why we evolved to have ears, smell (the most ancient believed) was not enough for us; dogs however yes but they can't see as well (cognitive trade-off theory).
I like Space Tank/X-Scape series' tunnel scene - also Starfy series, Tomato Adventure, *thinking* Kaeru no Tame ni Kane wa Naru, Yuyuki, Time Twist, Pokémon series, Sutte Hakkun Kirby's Dream Land 3 and Kirby Triple Deluxe music. When I'm sad, Midna's Lament, but the most powerful to my heart is Song of Healing from Majora's Mask, and I will never forget N's emotion theme from Pokémon Black/White either - the idea of truth/ideals spoke loudest during my psychosis. www.youtube.com/watch?v=WxPOSrrWjJY - it was like: Ghetsis theme was the true rigidity (N proved them wrong in a mysterious way), Ghetsis' song felt simply a chant for him, however N "who was called not to have a human heart" had that linked theme. Song of Healing feels like a mixture of both, which is why it is both so potent but awakening when you need it.
Nester the Lark: Hello, NinDB world! Post your shouts here! (But be careful not to wake the neighbors. )

nocturnal YL: Guys, guys! I can't believe what I found in Zelda 1! The game features an Elimination Mode that for some reason not many talked about! I wonder if it's fun? (Don't actually try it.)

nocturnal YL: Hey, I can edit shoutbox posts! This is already better than Twitter!

Nester the Lark: It seems like Cadence of Hyrule should be more popular than it is. Are people put off by the rhythm aspect? Or the randomly-generated maps?

nocturnal YL: ↑ Might warrant its own thread, but I think mixing rhythm and other genres usually resuls in gameplay too difficult for many. I can't handle it well either, judging from my scores in Dedede's Drum Dash.

nocturnal YL: ↑ For me personally, it simply hasn't been considered. It's a download-only game (until now) from a series I'm unfamiliar with and didn't feel like trying out.

Nester the Lark: Ironically, I did create a thread for Cadence of Hyrule, but then deleted it thinking there wouldn't be any discussion on it. Maybe I'll go ahead and make a new one.

Shrikeswind: Something to bear in mind about the shoutbox if you’re not already aware: It doesn’t show up on the mobile version of the forums. This shouldn’t be a major problem, but it can make it difficult to get into discussions for mobile visitors.

Shrikeswind: Also the more obvious character limit issues, and the format not really being conducive to longer-term discussion. It’s useful but limited; threads definitely still have their place.

Shrikeswind: (Honestly, Proboards mobile is pretty bad in general, but...)

Nester the Lark: Not sure if this works on all devices, but you can force the desktop version of the forum by scrolling all the way to the bottom and clicking the "Desktop" link at the lower right.

Shrikeswind: I’m aware. I’m typing this from my phone. I’m just pointing out that, for people who aren’t aware or who may be casually checking in on their phone, the shoutbox won’t be visible on

Shrikeswind: Is there a Discord for NinDB, by the way? It’s very popular with them there young’ns these days, so it might help activity.
Jul 26, 2020 22:07:47 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: There is no NinDB Discord. There was a brief discussion of it a few years ago, but nothing ultimately came of it. I rarely use Discord, myself.
Jul 27, 2020 8:58:28 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Hm. Seems like it might be a good idea if activity picks up. Not to be a pessimist but I do have my doubts that'll happen though.

Shrikeswind: Okay not a Nintendo topic but I kinda need to talk about this because I just learned it and it's a thing so bleh.

Shrikeswind: You remember Disney's Hunchback of Notre Dame, right? So apparently, 5 year old me was incapable of discerning male and female in non-humans, because *apparently* there's a female gargoyle, and the goat's a boy.
