Best Video Game Song Tournament, 1990-1995: Top 128 (Part 3 of 4)

Now it’s time for the knockout rounds. We’ll be single-elimination from here on out. You can see the bracket (with results!) here

The top 128 will run from the 11th through the 14th, 32 songs a day. Groups will no longer be feathered, and will instead be open until 9:00 am Pacific the day after they go live (roughly the time the next group goes live). You can listen to a playlist of today’s songs (in matchup order) here, or listen to the entire top 128 here. You can find all 4 groups in the spoiler.

More ties. I broke in favore of Alisa Dragoon – Stage 5-2 over The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening – Tal Tal Heights and Mega Man 3 – Get New Weapon over Ghouls ‘N Ghosts (Amiga PAL) – Main Theme (Tim Follin Version). Didn’t have strong reactions to any of these songs, just went with my gut.
