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: Here's an archive of results from the Everybody Votes channel. I found my poll question in the US English section for September 1, 2009.

nocturnal YL: Do you consider yourself to be more of a ... Romantic: 39.1% Realist: 60.9% This one, right? So… what's your own vote to that question? (I'd have picked realist.)

Nester the Lark: ^ At the time, I think I picked romantic. Not sure what I'd pick today. I feel like I'm somewhere in between.

Nester the Lark: Lately, the forum feels more like "Nester & YL's clubhouse."

nocturnal YL: Looking at the other members' last online date, I can safely say that this place is pretty much inactive by now.

Nester the Lark: Looking at an old post I wrote two years ago, I noticed I misspelled "threw" as "through," and now I'm angry at myself.

nocturnal YL: …Why am I still seeking gaming news when I have 7 games yet to complete and at least 2 more that I plan to get? (EDIT — Oh right, Ys IX has a confirmed release date. That makes at least 3 games I'll get later.)

nocturnal YL: My current plan is to play Atelier Firis DX now, which online guides suggest is long. Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX will likewise be long (longer than the original too, due to DLC, DX additions and I'll make the best items). I'll maybe play Ys Origin after.
Jun 14, 2021 10:28:43 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Not sure about what I'll play after. Another Atelier game will probably be out by then, either completing the Secret series or giving us Arland 5. Either way, I'll probably play those before going elsewhere. Dusk will have to wait for quite a bit…

Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should get Mario Golf at launch or wait a couple of months. I have so many other things to play that my gaming (and wallet) might need a little breathing room.

Nester the Lark: The problem with playing Hyrule Warriors and a modern Ys game at the same time is that even though the combat feels somewhat similar, the controls are completely different, and I get confused.

Shrikeswind: Yeah I'm here, but kinda vaguely. Sorry, I haven't had too much to say lately.
Jul 8, 2021 11:28:57 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: By the way, I don't know if you guys have been keeping up with OCR on YouTube, but apparently they're dropping an album for a game I grew up on, Jet Force Gemini. Really pumped; I'll post a review when they finish.
Jul 8, 2021 11:30:44 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Or at least when my Top 3 from that game are on the Toobz. Just one more song to go.

Nester the Lark: I feel like I've been neglecting the forum more than usual lately. Been distracted by other things. I'll try to post something when I get the chance.

nocturnal YL: I don't have time to make posts. Atelier Firis DX takes forever to play. When I'm not playing, I'm in a read-only mode, reading guides and watching (unrelated) videos.
Jul 17, 2021 13:25:38 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: On that note, I'll probably make a review on the whole trilogy, so it will be a while until I talk about these games in details here. I can say Atelier Firis DX has far exceeded my expectation and has taken over Totori as my 3rd fav.
