Several Topics Enter, One Topic Leaves: The Thunderdome Nomination Thread

I realize that our Thunderdomes are traditionally music-focused, but I'm still going to toss in a nomination for Who Would Win in a Fight-dome. Arguing about Goku versus Darth Vader is why the Internet was invented!

Would that also include themes for wrestler characters from other games?

I mean, I would say yes. (E.G. Haggar's music from MvC3, etc.)

Or wrestling sections from otherwise non-wrestling games? I can't think of an example but I feel confident this is a thing.

I would also say yes, though the only one of those I can think of is Abobo's Big Adventure, which I think just re-used NES music from Wrestlemania and Pro Wrestling, anyways.

I definitely have some ideas for non music thunderdomes. Movie trailers. Commercials. Fight scenes. And I really like this. But let me make a suggestion...

Let's have this be its own thing on the thunderdome/popularity contest thread. It is so different than the other kind of domes, I think people wouldn't mind it being its own thing. I feel there's more room for (friendly) debate and convincing people that even though the basic structure is the same, I would like to see this kind of thing be its own thing concurrent with the other events. Does anyone else agree? And I have some ideas for similar ones: racing. Arm wrestling. Simply more popular characters amongst similar themes. Is anyone else into this idea? If so, I think Mogri should get down to doing it immediately. It might need to get a different/variant name to separate it from the media-centric thunderdomes.

Also, no Saitama. Love the character but the basic premise is "only wins" and that makes it boring.

Sure, I'm not against it. My only reservation with doing it as its own thing is whether it will get traction.

I'm going to post the poll tomorrow morning sometime. So let's consider today the last day. Our four entries so far

Game Overdome - Falselogic (game over music)
Shuffledome - Johnny Unusual (hit shuffle on your music playing device)
Who Would Win in a Fightdome - Mogri (debating and voting who would in a fight)
Wrestlingdome - ShakeWell (music from wrestling games)

BTW, as for Mogri's entry, I want to hear what you think: should it be part of a regular dome or should this kind of entry necessitate a new kind of concurrent activity. I'm happy either way but I can see lots more options for the latter.

Did we ever do a Town Theme-dome? I remember the idea came up, but I can't remember if we ever actually did it because at this point there's been 11,000-Domes, and eventually all the songs I like lose and then I tune out. If people think there's not enough material there, we could throw in Menu music too.

SHUMP only and fighting game only and beat em up only are good ideas too, but they're niche so I dunno if people would be into that

Do you want to hear our thoughts here or in the poll thread?

Yes. I would host two of the three of those, if Alex didn't want to, but I've also already thrown one out there.

(He/Him)
OK, its that time. Lets nominate some new domes. If you want to host, tell us the topic in bold (if you want to suggest one for someone else to try, don't bold it and make it clear that you don't intend to host).

You have until the end of Wednesday to get your nomination in.
 

Johnny Unusual

(He/Him)
Once again, I'm nominating a Shuffledome.

The premise is you press shuffle on the music playing device of your choice from your personal music library and your nominees are the first five songs.
For example, I pressed shuffle, so my nominees would have been:
Clampdown by the Clash
Isn't It Love by Estelle
Due Contro Cinque by Ennio Morricone
Solar Sailer by Daft Punk
WE GOT THIS! by The Aquabats

Are you sure you want any competition? I know you've been trying to get the shuffle dome in for a while now.
 

Johnny Unusual

(He/Him)
I don't mind. Also, I feel like votes will be a good way to gauge interest and and if I lose this round, I wait a little longer, giving me more time to prune the embarrassing stuff out of my library.

OK, I guess I'll throw my hat in with the Wanna Drive Fast dome for music that makes you want to drive fast.

Any and all music - not just stuff from video games. But video game stuff would still be welcome

OK, only two options so far. If you want to take part, get your nom in before tomorrow (or early enough before I post the poll).
The current options are

The Shuffledome - Johnny Unusual
The Wanna Drive Fast dome - Torzelbaum

The deadline is Monday to get your nomination in.

For your consideration...

I thought Daikaiju's idea was for a DomeDome.

But would Thunder be eligible for that? I feel like that would be a bit too meta and maybe unfair for whoever didn't call it first.
