Congratulations to the winners! You'll receive your karma prizes before long. The average score was 13.62, while the median score was 10. The average number of correct guesses was 7, while the median was 7.

And now, the answer key. Notes about the correct answer are included for some of the trickier ones.
1. Goldeneye
2. Link's Awakening
3. Guitar Hero 3
4. Super Metroid
5. God of War
6. Shadow of the Colossus
7. Ninja Gaiden
8. Pokemon Stadium
9. Okami
10. Skies of Arcadia
11. Paper Mario
12. Persona 3
13. Golden Sun
14. Devil May Cry 3
15. Star Ocean 2
16. Final Fantasy 11
17. Double Dragon Advance
18. Romancing SaGa
19. ?
20. Super C
21. ?
22. Super Robot Wars Original Generation
23. Robotrek
24. ?
25. Mario Paint

Three songs were not guessed by anyone: #19, #21, and #24. What that means is that the first person to PM me with the correct answer to each will receive 15 bonus points for their overall score (that is, the sum of their monthly scores). You don't have to wait until the next contest for that either -- you can do that any time. You're limited to one guess per song per week, however (so, no sending me a list of 30 possible answers). Don't forget also, #18 and #24 from February's contest are still up for grabs.

Thanks to CrowMagnon, Tarrun, Error1355, Team Rocket Elite, BlitzBoy, Sonson, and RaptorLC for brainstorming the songs.

Oh come on; why am I the only one to not have played Stadium? I surely would've gotten it otherwise.

And I just played FF11; how in the world did I fail to get that

But good contest for the all of you. But I swear to goodness I've heard #17 somewehre before.

Didn't even enter this one, would've only got 3 of those. Man, this one was really difficult for me, and I love my boss and battle themes ;_;

Skies of Arcadia drove me NUTS for a day and a half. I was positive I had heard it before, but damned if I could remember from WHERE.

Okami bugged me a little bit, since it didn't so much play DURING the final boss battle as it did during a cutscene from it.

EDIT - huge luck-out on Devil May Cry 3, since I knew from listening around that it more than likely was from there. On the flip side, I really should've gotten God of War, but with all the female choir voices and percussions being ALL Dark Soul's soundtrack (save Ash Lake, Firelink Shrine, the Daughter of Chaos, and a few other places I'm probably not at yet) I guessed for that.

Hahahaha, the one contest I feel I did well in, and I lose a 3-way tie. Amazing.

I'd say that's what I get for waiting until the last day to submit, but I actually didn't get Super C until then so I kind of needed that time for once.

Heh, I guessed Dark Souls as well.
