(7) Contra vs. (10) Sonic the Hedgehog 2
(3) Secret of Mana vs. (14) The World Ends With You
(6) Phoenix Wright: Trials and Tribulations vs. (11) Mega Man X2

a) My love for Pikmin 3 has spilled over to a love for Little King's Story, even though I've never played it. As far as I know, there's no hunting for mushrooms in Little King's Story.
b) I can't vote for every Castlevania game, so I'm throwing another bone to the Bit Trip guys.
c) I like platformers
d) I like Zelda knockoffs, too

e) RE4 is one of my favorite games ever.
f) Tough draw for Contra, I feel. I have affection for both, but Sonic 2 is probably my favorite in the series. Nostalgia vs. Nostalgia.
g) The battle of shit that's too long to bother with. I pick the newer one, since it's newer. New things are cool.
h) I was hard on Phoenix Wright last round. Solidarity for my fellow Wright.

"If a game has appeared on multiple platforms, use your discretion in choosing which version to consider." Resident Evil 4 is the same way, lots of people prefer the Wii version. Just vote as you wish.

There is, but the mushrooms hunt you back...

- I haven't played either Monster Hunter Tri or LKS. Basically a coin flip.
- Castlevania easily.
- Haven't played HM64 and only a tiny bit of Cave Story. Another coin flip.
- Shantae vs. BG&E is a hard choice. A lot more stuff stands out about BG&E than Shantae when I think about them.

- The Lost Winds games were pretty cool, but c'mon. It's RE4.
- Sonic 2 is the one Sonic game I really got into, but Contra is a much better game.
- Coin flip.
- I don't like Phoneix Wright and I'm a big fan of the first MMX. So MMX2 I guess.

a) Three-hundred hours of good times can't be wrong!
b) Aria's better, but Dawn is still awesome.
c) Never played Harvest Moon. But I loved the demo of Cave Story!
d) Risky's Revenge, by a factor of... infinity. If BG & E wins this, then Nietzsche was right.

e) Poor Lost Winds...
f) Contra rules. Sonic drools.
g) My fifteen minutes of experience with The World Ends With You trumps my zero minutes of experience with Secret of Mana.
h) Hmm, reading text vs. kicking ass...

@Anand

Might want to actually vote for Contra then

@Anand

You've never played Secret of Mana? Just when I thought you couldn't disappoint me more than you already have.

First Banh Mi, then Asian T-Shirt ladies, and now fast forward to this. What's next -- WHAT'S NEXT?!

Talking about this Nietzsche quote?

"You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist."

I don't know that I should've voted on this bracket. I haven't even heard of some of these games.

@Jargon
Fixed!

@gojira
No, this one:

“God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him. How shall we comfort ourselves, the murderers of all murderers? What was holiest and mightiest of all that the world has yet owned has bled to death under our knives: who will wipe this blood off us? What water is there for us to clean ourselves? What festivals of atonement, what sacred games shall we have to invent? Is not the greatness of this deed too great for us? Must we ourselves not become gods simply to appear worthy of it?”

@Mr_Mustache
I don't like playing roles in games! I like playing as me. A rebel.

Without a cause.

@kriswright You should really try LKS someday. It's not quite as good as Pikmin, but it is still pretty awesome and different enough to justify its existence. Kind of like an Okami to Zelda thing.

As expected, Chrisbg99 not voting on two matchups made me fuck up my tabulation. From now on if you don't vote for a match up, none of your votes are getting counted.
