about

It's-A Me, Mario! - Write a song from the point of view of a videogame character. (2 minute minimum) (they had 8 days)

Please make sure it's not JUST a song about a videogame character: being from a FIRST PERSON POINT OF VIEW is part of the challenge. You also need to pick an existing videogame character, you cannot make up your own character. A lot of characters from other forms of media often cross over into videogames. You should pick a character that originated from the media of videogames. So even though there is a "Lord Of The Rings" videogame, you can't write about those characters.

Example:

Track Name: Mitchell Adam Johnson - In Another Castle
Seems they come around everyday
Fire in their eyes
They take me away from you
And I never do anything
To keep them away
I just can't wait for you to save the day
You make me feel like I can fly
I'm so alive

Come on and rescue me
Cos if you didn't show, I'd die
Baby, I'm so glad you're mine
In my castle, alone I wait
Dreaming of you
Playing our game of Love
And it feels so good to know
You'll save my neck
When you're away, my hero, I'm a wreck
As long as an adventure calls
I've got it all

Come on and rescue me
Cos if you didn't show, I'd die
Baby, I'm so glad you're mine

You've won again
As the credits roll, kiss me
Oh, what a thrill!
Boy, you make me so dizzy
Here we go again

Without danger, I feel no thrill
I only live
When you make the kill for me
And it never gets old at all
The worlds we see
One look at you and I'm in ecstasy

From now until the end of time
Baby, I'm so glad you're mine
Baby, I'm so glad you're mine
Track Name: Chris Cogott - In Bright Falls
Hey, here I am
It's a beautiful day here
Bright Falls
I hope nothing gets in my way
But something don't seem right
I feel safer in the light

It's been two years
Inspiriation it can't be found
Suddenly my life is turned upside down
I ran when I heard her scream (it's too late)
They dragged her into the lake

My name is Alan Wake
And I'm a Writer
But I don't remember writing this story

And as these pages come to life
I hope they help me find my wife

I'm running (running running)
Running through the night
With the help of a flashlight
The Taken they burn and ignite
Here comes some more
They just appear out of the thin air

I'm never giving up on you
The writing shows up on the walls
Maybe that's a clue
That takes me to where you are
I'll travel any distance
I don't care how far

My name is Alan Wake
And I'm a Writer
But I don't remember writing this story
My name is Alan Wake
And I'm a Writer
Track Name: Zarni De Wet - The Bleeding Effect
Like an untrained soldier I was dropped in the middle of a battlefield
All I had was the right kind of blood
They took me in, they locked me down, they invaded my memory

Ancestor secrets
A lost generation’s secrets are powers that I keep

I became a ghost
So you won't bleed
I became a ghost
To keep you safe
I'm a hero assassinate

They destroy just for a piece of Eden, everlasting power
Mothers, children in the world you will be devoured

In this game of who kills who first
Don’t have time to be a loser
If I gotta shed some blood to save some
Then I'll save some

I will be a ghost
So you won't bleed
I will be a ghost
To keep you safe
I will be a ghost
So you won't bleed
I will take a chance
Travel to the past
To keep you safe
I'm a hero assassinate
I'm a hero assassinate
I'm a hero assassinate
I'm a hero
I'm a hero assassinate
I'm a hero
Track Name: Rebecca Brickley - Where I Am
I used to be where you are now
An ACME loser
I used to think that was all there was
Now I can see my talents are more suited for
Playing for the other team
You see, I just need to have a little

So let’s play hard to get
Follow my silhouette
And catch me if you can
Read the clues, see the signs
You can search all space and time
You won’t find where I am
No you won't find where I am
You won't find where I am

When you look at me
You must think “wow, what a freak”
Well come and get me
There’s nothing wrong with me
I just like to make a splash

You see I used to play for the good guys
But, but being bad just feels so nice
So show me your worst, hit me with your best shot
C’mon Chief, is that all you got?

So let’s play hard to get
Follow my silhouette
And catch me if you can
Read the clues, and see the signs
You can search all space and time
You won’t find where I am
Where I am
Where I am
No
You can search all space and time
Let’s play hard to get
Yeah, catch me if you can

I used to swing for the home team
But truthfully it all just got so boring to me
You think you got me beat? Hah, that’s sweet
C’mon chief, come on and get me!

Let’s play hard to get
Follow my silhouette
And catch me if you can
Read the clues, and see the signs
You can search all space and time
You won’t find where I am
You won’t find where I am

No No No
No No No No

Read the clues, and see the signs
You can search all space and time
You won’t find where I am
Yeah but it's lovely where I am
Oh I love it where I am
Yeah you wish you could be
You wish you could be
Where I am
Track Name: Charlie McCarron - The Pac-Man Duet (Shadow)
I'd chew through this maze
I'd eat till I puke
If it leads your way

I'd stand up to ghosts
If only to show
I love you the most

I'd gamble my life
If it meant that I
Could meet
With you

Blinky and Pinky and Inky and Clyde
He's so stupid, but he gets me every time

You and me
And all that we see
We're puppets in one big lie

And those who play
So recklessly brave
They don't care if we live or
Track Name: Mark Humble - I'm Q*Bert, Babe (Shadow)
I’m Q*bert babe, I’ll fall for you
And you will fall for me, too
Let’s meet at the arcade down by the mall
I’ll be the one rockin’ colorful balls

I’ve got five, mmm, five megahertz of pure
Computer generated fantasy, girl
Try me once, ooh yeah, let’s start
I’ll take your quarters, then I’ll steal your heart

Now, I do not run around like Pac Man
I live on the edge of outer space
My pyramid schemes bring you back again yeah
Just jump right in to our special place …

Yeah yeah yeah!

At first you’re amused by my demise
But soon You’ll be haunted and then - surprise!
You relate to my terror as if its your own
That’s when I own you like a dog owns a bone

I’m Q*bert babe, you’ll fall for me
Just like my nemesis - Coily
So finish up that slice of pizza
I’ll school you in the ways of Nietzsche

Q*bert babe
Not Shoe*bert babe
I'm Q*bert babe
Q*bert babe
Track Name: Brian Gray - Hard To Get (Shadow)
So today's the day I finally bridge the strait
Of Charybdis and Scylla
Dividing secrets of my heart
Disobey instinct and circumnavigate
The 800 lb gorilla
Forever keeping us apart
And I've bet the farm I won't end up harming
The lady cradled in my arm
While you journey up to me

So I guess I've been playing hard to get
What with these springs and barrels
To be or not to be beset
By Cupid's slings and arrows
But I think it's time
For you to find out
What you haven't found out yet
That I'm not so hard to get

I got my big brother's plan to imitate
Followed almost to the letter
One decoy girl to apprehend
Gonna try now to ascend the Empire State
With the consequences better
I'll get my plumber in the end
It's not so simple to scale Olympus
But you inspire this humble chimp
To embrace our destiny

And I guess I've been playing hard to get
What with these springs and barrels
To be or not to be beset
By Cupid's slings and arrows
But I think it's time
For you to find out
What you haven't found out yet
That I'm not so hard to get

I'm not some raiding faun to your Diana
I want to know what makes you you
I feel there's flavors here besides banana
And I feel you feel it too

And I know you dream of honor's greater share
Like Henry and his neighbors
Your battle all the fates demand
Set aglow your heart as guide, and don't despair
The Sisyphean labors
You will endure to win my hand
Then we'll discover the secret of the
Ones who inspire songs of love
And touch immortality

And I guess I've been playing hard to get
What with these springs and barrels
To be or not to be beset
By Cupid's slings and arrows
But I think it's time
For you to find out
What you haven't found out yet
That I'm not so hard to get
That I'm not so hard to get
I'm not so hard to get
I'm just not so hard to get
I'm not so hard to get
Track Name: Boffo Yux Dudes - Floating Away (Shadow)
They're coming again
Just when I thought I had It made
I thought I got them all.
There was nothing on my display

I can't fight anymore
But it's what I must do
How much more can I take?
How much more can I do?

They can crush my tiny ship
Like they've already crushed my soul
I don't' want to break them down
I just feel like letting go

Floating Away
Forever and ever and ever and ever
Floating Away
Forever and ever and ever and ever

There coming again
and I feel me start to go
just one wrong shot and I
won't have to break them any more

Floating Away
Forever and ever and ever and ever
Floating Away
Forever and ever and ever and ever
Track Name: JoAnn Abbott - Go For The Eyes (Shadow)
I was so frightened the day that he chose
To reach down and lift me, I swear that I froze!
But I looked in his eyes and my fears flew away
And we fell in love on that day
Now it’s not just because he’s so good in a fight
His snug leather armor, his sword shining bright
It’s because in his eyes, his loving heart shone
And I had a man of my own

Go for the eyes, go for the eyes
If you aren’t sure what to do
If you don’t know a friend from a foe
Go for the eyes, they’ll tell you

So now we are partners along the Sword Coast
And I have to giggle when I hear him boast!
I point and he swings, cause that way works best
He fights; I take care of the rest
Butt kicking for goodness! We fight for what’s right
I stay at his side in the day and the night
Live by the sword live a good loooong time
I’m happy this ranger is mine!

Miniature Giant Space Hamsters are rare
But he knew me at once for the wonder I am
Against all our enemies we have no care
For I am his hamster and he is my man

He says “Make way evil! I’m armed to the teeth!
And packing a hamster who’ll bite you beneath!”
I will admit what is says can seem strange
But there’s nothing about him I’d change

Go for the eyes, Boo, go for the eyes
That’s what Minsc tells me to do!
My brains and his steel, will finish the deal
Go for the eyes, till we’re through!
Go for the eyes, till we’re through!
Track Name: Boffo Yux Dudes - One Level Down (Shadow)
5 waves of 11 fill the sky
I know our invasion is do or die
I may be destroyed in the vacuum of space
But know that another will take my place

One Level Down
One Level Down
Follow my brothers all the way to the ground

You will submit to the hive mind
Or perish like the others of your kind
Your puny weapons will do you no good
We’ll grind you up to make our food

One Level Down
One Level Down
Follow my brothers all the way to the ground

Your dreams of freedom won’t keep you warm
When you’re overrun by the mass of our swarm
5 waves of 11 fill the sky
I know our invasion is do or die

One Level Down
One Level Down
Follow my brothers all the way to the ground

One Level Down
One Level Down
One Level Down
One Level Down
One Level Down
One Level Down
One Level Down
One Level Down
One Level Down
One Level Down
One Level Down
One Level Down
Track Name: David Ritter - Pitfall! (Shadow)
I have no weapons
But my own 2 legs

Fire it wants to burn me
I won't let it hurt me

I feel so far away
Jungle's such a lonely place

Crocodile at my feet
Quicksand to consume me

I'm swinging on a vine
Gold & Silver - Oh it's mine

I'm swinging on a vine
You are on my mind

Rattlesnake's rattle and Scorpion Tails
Obstacles that are along the trail

Rattlesnake's rattle and Scorpion Tails
Obstacles that are along the trail

Everything's gonna be alright
Everything's gonna be alright
Everything's gonna be alright
Everything's gonna be alright
Track Name: Boffo Yux Dudes - Elf Shot The Food (Shadow)
We pillage and plunder and cause such upheaval
When gathering potions and food from those evil
Berzerkers and wizards and skeleton shambles
That walk with a grunt and avoid all gambles

But The Elf Shot the Food
The Elf Shot the Food
The Elf Shot the Food
Someone shot the food
The Elf Shot the Food
The Elf Shot the Food
The Elf Shot the Food
Someone shot the food

Any why the hell can't we find any exit
The monsters all crowd in, and that only makes it
That much a bother to get through the level
And drop down the hole as we all start to revel

But The Elf Shot the Food
The Elf Shot the Food
Someone shot the food
The Elf Shot the Food
The Elf Shot the Food
The Elf Shot the Food
Someone shot the food

Remember - don't shoot food

We pillage and plunder and cause such upheaval
When gathering potions and food from those evil
Berzerkers and wizards and skeleton shambles
That walk with a grunt and avoid all gambles

But The Elf Shot the Food
The Elf Shot the Food
The Elf Shot the Food
Someone shot the food
The Elf Shot the Food
The Elf Shot the Food
Someone shot the food

Valkyrie - your life force is running out…
Track Name: Caleb Hines - The Writing On The Wall (Shadow)
I can still remember that small room where this began
When I woke up I barely knew my name
You told me of some protocols for all those tests you ran
You almost seemed to treat it like some game

My first mistake was being so naive
I guess that I just wanted to believe that this would all be over soon
And you said there'd be cake...

But I've seen the writing on the wall
And I'm not gonna fall for all your
- So-called "enhancing" of the truth

And when these tests are finally through
I'll give a test to you because
I have seen the writing on the wall

You might've tried to hide it, but the turrets made it clear
You really didn't want me to survive
I dodged a couple bullets there, but nothing's quite like fear
To make a person GLaD they're Still Alive

But then you made me burn my only friend
I knew right there that this could only end with watching you go down in flames
And then I'd have my cake...

Cause I've seen the writing on the wall
And I'm not gonna fall for all your
- So-called "enhancing" of the truth

And when these tests are finally through
I'll give a test to you because
I have seen the writing on the wall

You thought that you could kill me on that final burning floor
But I escaped, and now the fun begins
I'm sick of all those buttons, and those stupid sliding doors
I never want to see a box again

It seems like I've been in this place for days
Just wandering this stupid endless maze, and when I find you, you will die
Cause you said there'd be cake --
But it's a lie
Track Name: Governing Dynamics - One Four One (Roach) (Shadow)
Watch your step
I feel I’m falling,
Is someone screaming?
Gasoline?

Blue dots on what amounts to a seer’s window
Put them out and leave blood on the snow
Into the white, where no naked eye can see
We’re compromised, and going to plan B

Spoke no Russian, Rio was a lion’s den
Sure we got what we came for, lost three good men

Black ops seem need new names
They always turn out smoke-gray
With my team in this recurring dream
It always ends in flames
Everything goes down in flames

Up from black water
Tinted with crimon
More than we bargained
Prisoner six two seven

Seems that Captain Price has lost it
Soap says it's nice he's still alive
We’ll follow orders, get him to the submarine
With eight deadly black arrows inside

We went all in, and lit a second sun
Just to put out a fire with a bigger one

Black ops seem to need new names
They always turn to smoke-gray
With my team in this recurring dream
It always ends in flames
No lights in DC but the flames

You’d think a Shepherd would be one who protects
You’d think we’d earned a better grave than a ditch
You’d hope a Ghost wouldn’t be killed by mere bullets
We should have seen it coming, never did suspect
That two faced son of a bitch

Can’t find my feet
Know i’m falling
My best friend screaming
I smell gasoline

Black ops seem to need new names
They always turn out smoke-gray
I’m with my team in this recurring dream
It always ends in flames
We are alone and drown in flames
Discarded pawns in a madman’s game
With the last two voices who know our names
Track Name: Inverse T. Clown - I'm Tops (Shadow)
There isn't much debate
Dr. Wiley's pretty smart
A brilliant man, to say the least
Just look at me
A cybernetic work of art
As some might say, his masterpiece
And I'd agree they're not far off
'Cause unlike all his other 'bots

He didn't name me Top Man
For the weapon that I wield
He knows that I'm the greatest
In the Robot Master field
He needed someone stronger
And he pulled out all the stops
Megaman had better watch his back
'Cause when it comes to tough, I'm tops

The other robots
You can tell it makes them sick
That I'm the best the doctor built
They give me nasty looks
The jealous little pricks
They're hoping I'm the first one killed
Well, that's just not gonna happen, boys
Compared to me, it's you that're toys

He didn't name me Top Man
For the weapon that I use
He had to pick a champion
And it wasn't hard to choose
He needed someone better
And he pulled out all the stops
Megaman had better bring his best
'Cause when it comes to tough, I'm tops

People say that my gimmick sucks
Always tryin' to bring me down
But I keep in mind that it's only spin
And it turns me right around

I know he's coming
Megaman is giving chase
He wants the crystal that I guard
But all he's getting
Is a roundhouse to the face
He wants to fight? He better fight hard
'Cause Dr. Right planned my design
And Wiley made me top of the line

He didn't name me Top Man
For the weapon that I shoot
It's clear that I'm his favorite son
His paramount recruit
He needed someone perfect
And he pulled out all the stops
Megaman had better say his prayers
'Cause when it comes to tough, I'm
