Where did those choices come from? Ken Griffey Jr. baseball?...Backyard baseball? Best video games of all time? C'mon. Anyway, notable non-entries are the Wonderboy franchise, Sonic Franchise, Double Dragon, and NARC. One game many probably have never heard of is Golvellious for the Sega Master System. It was Sega's version of the original Zelda and SO much better. Anyway, my votes are in.

They came from the Wii u contest posts, more specifically they came from Wii u contest posts from before December first. There were almost exactly 64 different nominations at that point.


RESULTS FROM ROUND ONE ARE IN Link

Loss I'm saddest about? Chrono Trigger, I know Mario party is poplar, but I consider Chrono Trigger one of the best games of all time and it just got DEMOLISHED!

Some of the results are actually pretty surprising

EDIT: One game I would have loved to see on here would be the Walking Dead Video Game.

EDIT x2: But it won Game of the Year so it kind of already won...

Results from round 2 are IN Link

Sad to see Donkey Kong Country, and Golden Eye go. Happy to see Sim city, Zelda and Metroid still going strong.

Would be impressed to see NBA Jam win! HES ON FIRE!!!!

Glad to see Super Smash Bros. still in it. Surprised it beat Halo. Also surprised Cruisin' USA beat Punch Out. I voted for USA, though. I loved playing it the whole way through in arcades.

I'm telling you, Both of the Batman games (Arkham Asylum and Arkham City) are right up there with the best, they should have a realistic shot at getting to the finals in my opinion...

how did super mario galaxy make it this deep? has it been an easy run, or is it truly the bracket busting cinderella story of the voting?

I liked the Galaxy games. But, SSB should take it down. Let's go Bros.!

In case someone (maybe only me) is still following the FF series, they are making another installment to Final Fantasy 13 and it should be the last one. Looks pretty sweet but exactly the same as the last 2 that have been made.

Madden is leading COD? I shouldn't be surprised this being a sports cards forum and all, but yet, I am.

Down to the Final 4

Results: Link

Sad to see NBA Jam, Mario Galaxy and Mario bros defeated. Not surprised to see Madden and CoD and SSB going strong, but I not so secretly hope zelda can prevail in the end.

Mario galaxy is one of the best games in one of the top game franchises of all time, combined with the fact its also fairly recent, its not to hard to see why it made it so far. Sad to see it go, but I like you, doubted it would get much farther.

OK: Round 5 is over

Championship time, who will Blowout crown as the best video game of all time?

Will critical darling Zelda take it all, or will Blowout decide it's Madden's time to shine?

I would have to say Fallout 3 is by far the best game I've ever played.

It's definitely up there, especially since I live in the DC area. Tons of cool things to see and areas to explore, open world done right.

New Vegas was good as well if you haven't played it yet.

Have to vehemently disagree on Fallout 3 and New Vegas being good. That series went down the crapper when it went away from the turn based style of 1 & 2 (Tactics was crap, so not including that one). It went from, IMO, the best turn based game to a generic FPS.

Generic FPS? I would strongly disagree to that statement. Fallout 3 has an open world equal too or perhaps second only to skyrim.

While I can understand the anger that many people have over the drastic change from Fallout 2 to 3, its still important to judge Fallout 3 on its own merits.

What a trash winner

P.S. In no way is Fallout 3 an average FPS. It is not even an FPS at all.
