Rules: Please give credit if you repost a finding from this sheet. Add the instruments in the games' chronological order. Write the first or the oldest console that the game was released on only. No SFX. Don't add an instrument if you haven't compared it with the raw sample from the game (this doesn't apply to games that you can't rip samples from). Write instruments that are from the same game or the same source next to each other, and don't separate them. If a sample overlaps between multiple sources, write the source that the composers are confirmed to have and write the oldest source that the sample appears in if the composers aren't confirmed to own any of them. If a sample overlaps between multiple sources that the composers are confirmed to have, write the oldest one.
