A few tough choices there... especially the first - but for a game i loved for quick bouts or long battle sessions VS a game I still have yet to finish because of the random battles - I pick the fighter -

(1) Final Fantasy VI vs. (16) Soul Calibur II
(8) Castlevania: Rondo of Blood vs. (9) Mega Man 3
(4) Ghost Trick Phantom Detective vs. (13) Sonic the Hedgehog 3 and Knuckles
(5) Illusion of Gaia vs. (12) Conker's Bad Fur Day

(2) Resident Evil 2 vs. (15) Prince of Persia: Sands of Time
(7) Professor Layton and the Curious Village vs. (10) Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia
(3) Lufia II: Rise of the Sinistrals vs. (14) Okami
(6) Mega Man X vs. (11) Professor Layton and the Unwound Future

Notes:
- I'll take FFVI against any game. Any. Easy choice right there.
- Mega Man 3 is my favorite Mega Man game. Another easy choice.
- I've never played Ghost Trick, so Sonic 3 & Knuckles wins by default.
- I've never played Conker, and what little I've played of Illusion of Gaia was great.

- Resident Evil 2 is one of the best in the series. Easy choice.
- Curious Village is the worst Layton game (it's still good) while Order of Ecclesia is a solid portable Castlevania game. Tough call since I adored both, but I went with OoE.
- I haven't played Lufia II much, and I loved Okami.
- Layton here, and this was a hard choice. However, the end of Unwound Future was gut-wrenching and left more of a lasting impression on me.

@TriforceBun I would imagine that many people just haven't played Lufia II, given the difficulty in obtaining a legit copy. And I also suspect that there will be a higher number of people who haven't played some of these games than in last year's Nintendo contest, so we'll probably see a lot of these sorts of matchups.

(1) Final Fantasy VI vs. (16) Soul Calibur II
(8) Castlevania: Rondo of Blood vs. (9) Mega Man 3
(4) Ghost Trick Phantom Detective vs. (13) Sonic the Hedgehog 3 and Knuckles
(5) Illusion of Gaia vs. (12) Conker's Bad Fur Day

(2) Resident Evil 2 vs. (15) Prince of Persia: Sands of Time
(7) Professor Layton and the Curious Village vs. (10) Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia
(3) Lufia II: Rise of the Sinistrals vs. (14) Okami
(6) Mega Man X vs. (11) Professor Layton and the Unwound Future

EDIT:
- My notes:

- One of the best fighting games of all time, against a rather ho-hum (IMO) RPG? Easy choice.
- I love Mega Man, but I love Castlevania more.
- An interesting, innovative adventure game with a unique hook, versus a dumb Sonic game? Easy choice.
- Never played Conker, so Gaia wins by default.

- This was a really tough call, but I decided on Capcom's game mostly due to nostalgia. (and it's awesome, so there's that too)
- Castlevania wins easily.
- I didn't really love Okami all that much, but Lufia II is awesome. Easy choice.
- There are few games better than Mega Man X. Another easy choice.

Seems the only difficult choice for me was Resident Evil 2 and The Sands of Time. Hopefully they are all this easy going forward.
