This year, I decided to stick to a certain position when drafting these posts: I will provide context, then let the videos do the talking. What will my commentary provide that isn’t already obvious from the first listen of these phenomenal tracks? It’s like when reality show “stars” describe what’s happening onscreen as it’s onscreen. Yeah, we can see.
SiIvaGunner is a parody account of noteworthy video game track uploader GilvaSunner. Multiple times a day (in infrequent periods), they will upload tracks that take the entirety or a portion of a (usually) game soundtrack and edit it in a way that makes it a joke. Should you need any examples, feel free to look at my 2017, 2018, and 2019 lists. What will be making my list will be the “highest quality” tracks, those that I can listen to unironically as music that makes me swoon, joke or not.
Please note by the big parentheses in the title of this post that this is an annual thing that occurs on this blog that shouldn’t be construed as a be-all, end-all list of the best rips to ever grace SiIvaGunner. This is just my own opinion, and if you disagree, you should make your own list, credit me with inspiring you, and tell me I’m wrong.

Special thanks to Triple-Q for the last rip. My ears are satisfied.
Any other SiIvaGunner rips you would’ve suggested? Is my taste not actually high quality? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments and I will choose whether or not to ignore them!
Thank you for your time. Have a great day.
