IT'S A TIE

I GUESS THAT'S FINE BECAUSE NEXT ROUND WAS UNEVEN

That ends the Ro22, moving on to the Ro12:

1. Last Duel (Lufia)
2. Palace of Destruction (Ys)
3. Slam Shuffle (FF6)
4. Devil's Lab (FF6)
5. Leave Time for Love (Secret of Mana)
6. Disco Descent (Crypt of the Necrodancer)
7. Dungeon (Sorcerian)
8. Mysterious Cave (Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete)
9. Valestein Castle (Ys: The Oath in Felghana)
10. Booster's Tower (Super Mario RPG)
11. Final Castle (Mystic Quest)
12. Tyrano Lair (Chrono Trigger)


Ys and FF6 still have two entries apiece. We're down to the best of the best, with each song surviving three groups of elimination so far.

First up:

4. Devil's Lab (FF6)
3. Slam Shuffle (FF6)

No, I didn't fix this match.

I'll be gone for Christmas and possibly New Year's, so I'll be leaving this poll open until I get back.

Oof. Devil's Lab then. It's got more... relief? More internal differentiation, more breadth, without a sacrifice of depth.

It's fascinating how we've reached a point where any justifications I try to come up with are only likely to grow vaguer and more abstract.

I still think Devil's Lab is too short, but I dunno, Zozo just doesn't fit my idea of a dungeon.

I figured I'd vote against Tyrano Lair for the same reasons as last time, given that Final Castle is perfectly at ease in SNES sounds, but it turns out that I'm voting against Tyrano Lair because Final Castle is more rockin'.

11. Final Castle (Mystic Quest) 3
12. Tyrano Lair (Chrono Trigger) 6

One day, Tyrano Lair will be stopped, but it is not this day

Next up:

2. Palace of Destruction (Ys)
8. Mysterious Cave (Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete)

It had to happen eventually: My inevitable betrayal of Lunar and the destruction of my soul, and subsequent descent into madness.

Cave's still charming and lively, but as far as making me feel like breaking into an ancient building to kill everything that moves and open the hell out of some fancy boxes, PoD's got it beat by a mile.

2. Palace of Destruction (Ys) 5
8. Mysterious Cave (Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete) 2

Wishing on a dream that seems far off
Hoping it will come today

Into the starlit night
Foolish dreamers turn their gaze
Waiting on a shooting star

But, what if that star is not to come
Will their dreams fade to nothing
When the horizon darkens most
We all need to believe there is hope

Is an angel watching closely over me
Can there be a guiding light I've yet to see
I know my heart should guide me, but,
There's a hole within my soul

What will fill this emptiness inside of me
Am I to be satisfied without knowing

I wish, then, for a chance to see
Now all I need (desperately)

Is my star to come...

Is Asakura watching closely over me?
Can there be a rival I've yet to see?
I know that I should bone Kyon, but
There's a hole within my plot

Who will fill this emptiness inside of me
Am I to be satisfied boylove-reading?

If I can get a hot dicking
Then all I'll need (desperately)

Is a turkey luuuuunch.

Okay, okay, okay, I get it, I get it now. This whole deal was an elaborate experiment to find out what it would take to get me to vote against Booster's Tower. Makes sense in retrospect. I'm not even mad.

Well, anyway, there it is.

10. Booster's Tower (Super Mario RPG) 3

Next up:

5. Leave Time for Love (Secret of Mana)
7. Dungeon (Sorcerian)

Sorcerian stood up to Tyranny last round, but can it survive Mana's wrath?

Welp, woulda voted for Tyrano Lair over Leave Time For Love, so, there's an agony-free round for me.

5. Leave Time for Love (Secret of Mana) 5
7. Dungeon (Sorcerian) 6

Very close match.

Now that Lyrai's dream has been crushed, you get the chance to crush mine:

1. Last Duel (Lufia)
6. Disco Descent (Crypt of the Necrodancer)
