Welcome back to GameFAQs Competitions!

This month we have some spooky songs for you to identify. Your task is to identify the songs. There are 15 songs, and each song has a 10 second clip. The songs themselves may not be spooky, but they have something about them that is, either the location, the implications of what is happening when they play, or maybe just the song itself is spooky. <.<

Again, a disclaimer; This competition is not officially sponsored by GameFAQs or CBS Interactive and all monetary rewards have been provided by the moderation staff.
This month's prize is sponsored by the rich mod @yoshifan1 ! (Again. <_< He's going to make the rest of us look bad once we go back to more normal prizes. <.<)

Rules
Do not share information or ask for information from other GameFAQs users that may help you gain an advantage in this competition. Consulting family and friends in real life, who do not plan to partake in these competitions, is fine. If you are caught cheating you will be barred from future competitions and any posts will be moderated with a karma loss.

To Enter
Send a PM to me (AssultTank) with your answers. In your PM, please use the subject line "November Competition Entry" and make sure to number your guesses.
Example:
1. game - area/song
2. game - area/song

Scoring & Prizes
You will receive three points for guessing the correct game and 2 points for the name of the song or area the song can be heard in.

Prizes are:
1st Place: 40 Karma or [PS4 Pro or Xbox 1 X]
2nd place: 30 karma
3rd place: 20 karma
4th place: 10 karma
5th place: 5 karma

In addition, two randomly-selected (non-blank) entries that did not win karma will also receive a 5 karma prize. So even if you have no idea what the correct answer is it may be worth participating, as you have a shot at the random prize!

Note: You must be able to get shipping from Amazon.com (US site) to win the console prize. Canadian and US users, I know for a fact it will work for you.

Tied Entries
If there are multiple submissions that rank the same, they will all get that rank's prize, however this will bump down all lower ranked submissions by 1 rank. For example,
2 entries tie at 45 points for first place, 1 at 44 points, 1 at 41 points, 1 at 40 points, and 1 at 27 points.
In this situation, the 45 point entries would both receive 1st place. the 44 point entry will take 3rd place, the 41 point entry will take 4th place, and the 40 point entry will take 5th place.

NOTE: This does not apply to the console prize. In the event of a tie for first place, I will use random.org to select the winner of the console.

The Music!
(I was tempted to insert a clip of me shouting BOO! As loudly as I could, then cranking up the relative volume way up to scare you guys... But I didn't...)

The deadline for entry will be Friday, November 16th at 11:59PM Eastern and winners will be announced on the following Friday (or sooner if my work schedule permits scoring early). [No, GameFAQs is not my job. :P]

I have a limit to the amount of karma I'm allowed to give out. <.< Yoshi seems to have no limit to the size of his prize. <.<

Yet funnily $100 used to be equivalent to 1,000 Karma or something a while back. :thonk:

Luckily, there is no talent competition. We are shifting tomorrow. There will be a lot of managements during these 2 weeks. So, I won't be able to make a good comic.

We need to submit a wishlist with our entry too if we want the console, right? I might do this one...

Congrats again on your choice of songs, @AssultTank. When I first clicked on the topic, one particular place from one particular game popped into my head, which I hoped you would use since it was (for the time and tech) one of the most unnerving, unsettling and spooky tracks EVER, and sure enough, it was there. I only know 6 out of the 15 right off, but I might still enter it anyway.

I'll just get the wishlist from the winner, that way not everyone has to worry about setting it up.

Spooky Scary Sonatas send systems to your shack.

I probably won't enter since I've never been good at these contests (this type in particular I'm bad at because my game libraries are so focused on a set few series that I know maybe 1 or 2 of the songs at most), but I saw the title for this contest and I really just had to post this.

EDIT: Sure enough, after listening I only know 2 for sure. I recognize a third one but don't remember exactly where it's from.
