Super Paper Mario has a weird but winning soundtrack, which I think is going to result in boom or bust performance throughout group play. Case in point: “Staff Credits” manages to win the group, while “World of Nothing” is hanging out in the basement. But it’s not just big name games doing well here; obscure titles are also putting up results, such as Aether’s “Aether”.


It’s time for group play! We have 1,358 songs this time; we’re trying out 24-song groups this time, so we have 56 groups of 24, plus a 57th of 14. For the group stage, vote for as many songs as you like! Songs will be ranked based on how many upvotes they got compared to how many people voted in that round. 1 After all groups are done, the top 384 songs from across all groups will advance to the playoffs.

…unless! After group play, but before the playoffs proper, there will be a wild card runoff! If an individual game places more than 10 songs into the top 384, songs 11+ per game will face off against songs 385+2 in a play-in round.

We’ll be “feathering” groups; voting on group 4 will be active until Friday January 15th at 10:00PM Pacific. Group 3 will be active until 10:00PM tonight; vote here. Group 5 will start Friday and be active until Sunday, and so on. Please listen to every song! Don’t just vote name recognition.

You can listen to all songs in group 4 in this handy YouTube playlist! (Don’t worry, songs will also be linked in the comments, where voting will take place)

You can work ahead if you like:

Or listen to every song here.

Again, voting for group 4 is open until Friday January 15th at 10:00PM Pacific
