Closest matchup: Two near upsets ended in anticlimactic ties this round, with Super Smash Bros. Brawl falling to Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Monster Hunter Tri falling to Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow based on site rating. Monster Hunter's loss was particularly close, as it was edged it out by a mere .02 points.
Biggest Blowout: Super Metroid and Super Smash Bros. Melee both lived up to their reputations as all time classics as they pummeled Nintendo Land and Super Mario Bros. 2 respectively, but it came as something of a surprise that The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword claimed victory over Super Mario 3D Land by the same large margin.
Biggest Upset: Having just missed out on two big upsets, those rooting for the underdog will have to settle with Skyward Sword, a 6 seed, taking down Super Mario 3D Land, a 3 seed.
I would have loved to see a possible Smash Bros. showdown in the Elite Eight, but Super Mario Galaxy 2 is a great game and the best Smash Bros. in my book is still alive so I'm not too broken up about it.
