About 8 years ago (holy shit we're old), I ran a Top 100 NES tracks project here on The Shizz. It was awesome. It's now time to give the SNES its long overdue Top Tracks project!
This site has two objectives:
- Use rating systems to compile a list of the best SNES tracks ever. This time, for better statistical properties, it's going to be a 1 vs 1 between tracks (à la Elo, which is used in chess or online gaming), rather than arbitrary and more subjective 0-100 ratings.
- Promote musical gems from obscure and/or mediocre games. We all know and love Nobuo Uematsu and David Wise and such, but it's time to expand our knowledge and find new audio orgasms providers. You can search for games, tracks, make playlists, share them, ...
It also serves as a nice tracks database, as each and every track can have a screenshot, review, rating, composer, etc. Mostly user-submitted, but hey, there's a lot of tracks on there (34,671 to be precise). Also, since everything is SPC and JS based, you should be able to use the site with whatever device you want, using little bandwidth. SPC listening on the go!
We (Jerther and I) are confident the site is very much usable, but should you encounter bugs or have suggestions, we'd very much like to hear about them.
We need a ton of "duels" before we can have any kind of list. So now go, and make those SNES tracks fight each other to the death! When you sign up, make sure to select the "The Shizz" community, and use the following token: Shizzies
