Congratulations to the winners! You'll receive your karma prizes before long. The average score was 15.3, while the median score was 12. The average number of correct guesses was 9, while the median was 9.

And now, the answer key. Notes about the correct answer are included for some of the trickier ones.
1. Ocarina of Time/Super Smash Bros. Melee*
2. Super Mario 64
3. Shadows of the Empire**
4. Super Mario Land 2
5. BioShock
6. LittleBigPlanet
7. Sonic 3
8. Pokemon RSE
9. Deus Ex
10. Mega Man 2
11. Persona 4
12. F-Zero
13. Earthbound
14. Michael Jackson's Moonwalker
15. MapleStory
16. Breath of Fire 3
17. Xenoblade Chronicles
18. Alundra
19. Ar Tonelico II
20. ?
21. Bubsy
22. Harvest Moon: Magical Melody
23. Mischief Makers
24. Ace Combat 4
25. Riviera: The Promised Land

* - After several people mentioned it, I noticed that this particular version does seem to come from Super Smash Bros. Melee. However, other sites still cite it as the version from Ocarina of Time. So, I gave credit for either answer.

** - Lots of different Star Wars answers for that one all got series credit, but this version's specifically from Shadows of the Empire (plus, that was the first game to feature it anyway, so even if the versions were the same, the 'first game' rule applies).

One song was not guessed by anyone: #20. 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 TheOlympicHero, BlitzBoy, Sonson, RaptorLC, Devin Morgan, Error1355, Tarrun, GValko, Mewtwo X9, Kilroy84, and Team Rocket Elite for brainstorming the songs.

Oh and one last thing, I don't think I've received any karma for last month yet. Not positive though.

All good things must come to an end - preferably in a humongous explosion!

Congratulations to the winners.

And now for a comment on my own performance... I did so miserably this time around, and I really have no one to blame but myself for not trying too hard. Even as it was, I still should have gotten Xenoblade, Alundra, and LittleBigPlanet. I don't even really know how I dropped the ball on those ones considering they all came to mind at one time for me.

Pretty much dealt a near fatal blow to me in terms of finishing Top 5 in the overall standings by the end, IMO, unless I do uncharacteristically well on one of the last three.

The Alundra overworld theme will forever stay in my head.
Fantastic game.
