It seems most of my hopes rest on one game. I’ve noticed there are a lot of Mario games. I don’t think I’ve played a single one in my life before. Not sure what the big deal is.

Dong, the problem is that you played MGS after the other three, right? It is hard to judge accurately in that position. I played MGS after 2 and 3, so it is hard for me to. It’s like trying to judge DW 2 after having played 3.

Very true. The story still shines though so I'll withdraw my remark

Bracket 1: Super Mario World (1990, SNES)
Bracket 2: Final Fantasy VI (1994, SNES)
Bracket 3: Super Metroid (1994, SNES)
Bracket 4:
Bracket 5:
Bracket 6:
Bracket 7: Chrono Trigger (1995, SNES)
Bracket 8: Super Mario 64 (1996, N64)

Wow, the VC-F influence was very strong this time. Nearly every game I voted for last round was booted by Mario, Zelda, or Metroid with only a couple RPGs left. Good ones, sure, but not the ones I would have picked.

Yeah, there are certain key games that we knew were going to be tenacious right from the start, the SNES triad of doom, in particular (SMW, Super Metroid, ALttP).

Here's me for the round, holding out hope for some variety to make it through.

Bracket 1: Metal Gear Solid (PS1)
Bracket 2: Final Fantasy VI (SNES)
Bracket 3: Portal (PS3)
Bracket 4: Super Mario Bros. 3 (NES)
Bracket 5: Tetris (GB)
Bracket 6: Portal 2 (PS3)
Bracket 7: Chrono Trigger (SNES)
Bracket 8: N/A

Best of the Genesis 1: Gley Lancer
Best of the Genesis 2: NHL '94
