Best Video Game Song Tournament, 1990-1995: Top 64 (Part 2 of 2)

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 64 will run from the 15th through the 16th, 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 64 here. You can find both groups in the spoiler.

Two more ties. The winners are “Skate or Die 2: The Search for Double Trouble – Main Theme” over “Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo – Ken’s Theme” and “Sonic The Hedgehog – Starlight Zone” over “Ys III: Wanderers From Ys – The Strongest Foe”. The percussion at ~0:45 in “The Strongest Foe” nearly swung it the other way, though. That’s such a good part.
