This was plenty hard. Voting against Tetris, the very definition of a classic, with Super Mario 3D World feels like blasphemy, but I've been having far too much fun with Mario lately. Star Fox versus Banjo wasn't an easy choice either, and especially not since I never owned Banjo back in the day, but spent countless hours blasting shit to smithereens in Star Fox. When all is said and done, however, I'm a collectathon platforming kind of guy, and Banjo-Kazooie does that very well.

I like that I can edit everyone's posts, all I have to do is fine one that says exactly what I want to say, click edit, copy and paste, BLAMMO.

In truth, none of these decisions were particularly tough for me this time around, though it will be sad to see a few of these games go...

(1) Super Mario 3D World (Wii U) vs. (5) Tetris (NES)
(3) Donkey Kong 94 (GB) vs. (2) Chrono Trigger (SNES)

(8) Mega Man 3 (NES) vs. (4) The Legend of Zelda (NES)
(6) Star Fox 64 (N64) vs. (7) Banjo Kazooie (N64)

1: Okay, FINE. I guess I can cut the NES version of Tetris some slack, assuming it's meant to represent Tetris in all its forms. But I still think the GB one is better!
2: Gah, it hurts to vote against the magnificent DK'94, especially when I feel that CT is slightly overrated…but 16-bit Square is hard to top.
3: Best Mega Man vs. Best Zelda. Sorry, Rock.
4: Still shocked SF64 beat RE4. I aim to stop it for that, even if it means voting for a game that I prefer over it!

After bad mouthing CT so much in other polls, I had to vote for it here.

Making me vote off my all time favourite Mega Man game? You are cold, sir.

Pretty easy bracket for me. I was a bit hesitant with number 3, but ultimately Mega Man 3 isn't unique and I had a lot of fun with the original Zelda and still like it. MM3 still was a fave back then too though.

Everything else was an easy choice, and I haven't played Star Fox 64 so that one was super easy.

Tetris kinda grated me as a kid. I've gotten better at it as an "adult."
Chrono Trigger should win this whole tourney.
Mega Man 3 is pretty darn good, but Legend of Zelda is Legend of Zelda.
And love that Star Fox 64, can't get enough. GO FOX GO!

Sad to see you guys rolling Tetris for 3D World. C'est la vie.

Just curious. How many of you would have voted for GB Tetris if it had been here rather than the NES version?

A1. This 3D Mario is better than that block-dropping game.
A2. I like time traveling.

B1. Tough one here, because I have fond memories of playing the original Zelda. But Mega Man 3 is more replayable in my book.
B2. I like flying foxes, falcons, rabbits, and frogs (and the like) more than bears with birds in their backpacks.
