Final Fantasy Name That Tune
Posted 12 March 2013 - 01:40 PM
Question for those of you who are interested and might show up. Would you prefer separate categories for Final Fantasy, Final Fantasy II, and Final Fantasy III, or would you like all three combined into a Final Fantasy I-III category? There's kind of a tradeoff. On one hand, those three are probably the most obscure to American audiences, and if I had them all in one category, it would make for easy selections as I'd end up only picking the most familiar (like the "Chocobo Theme", the "Crystal Theme", and the "Main Theme"). On the other hand, the titles to a lot of the songs are so basic (like "Battle Theme", "Battle Theme 2", "Shop", "Airship", etc.) that it's really easy to guess.

Gonna have to really brush up on my FF songs, tho... heh
esp. the actual titles

Heh, yes, please do, because the newest game I'm having is Final Fantasy X. I'm not including anything from X-2, XI, XII, XIII, or XIII-2. The reason is I really think they haven't had any good songs since Nobuo Uetmatsu stopped working on them. I'm trying to go fairly easy and have songs everyone knows.

This isn't the full version for the ff14 one, but the trailer they gave when they took the servers down while they rebooted the game.

Maybe next year. This is my first panel. I plan on getting some feedback from it.

I still need to work up a format for the "final round", where I'm going to have the winners compete for the "grand prize". Name up to ten songs in a minute. But, ideally, for that I want to give the option to "pass", and I don't want to get flustered via playing them myself and screw up the notes, making it harder to answer.
One thing I could do is have the final round be pencil and paper. I play segments and then they write down the answers for each. That way, I can deal with multiple competitors for the grand prize (I have a tie-breaker set up already), without having to worry about sound-proofing issues that would arise from playing the songs repeatedly and having the other contestants overhear the songs before it's their turn.

- 90 minutes instead of one hour for more gameplay
- Better way of selecting contestants
- (Possibly) Another panelist to handle either the board or the keyboard to ease transitions. (The only problem is I really don't know anyone who could do this...)
- More CD prizes.
Unfortunately, the final category will remain a listening challenge. The reason I used that is because there's no guarantee I can play a full minute of these songs in a way that ensures the audience knows it sounds like the music from the game. However, if people would like me to avoid "new versions" of the music as opposed to the original songs, I can work on that.
Hopefully I'll be back next year with an improved panel.
