Eh. I don't feel particularly impressed with most of the games left in this bracket, except RE4 and maybe Sonic 2 and MMX2. Sad about Harvest Moon 64 and Little King's Story.

Mana and X2 was SUPER HARD. Had to pick one though.

Never played much of either but I prefer the concept of Castlevania.
I absolutely love Cave Story. Easy pick.
Sonic is always better than Resident Evil in my mind, particularly Sonic 2.
Tried Secret of Mana and just didn't care for it. Mega Man X2 it is.

- I love these GBA/DS Castlevania games.
- I don't feel that strongly about BG&E, but I liked it more than Cave Story.

- RE4 heads and shoulders above basically the only Sonic game I really liked.
- Haven't played either. MMX is a great game, so MMX2 it is.

I tried to bold Monster Hunter twice but I couldn't. Weird.

@TheOldManFromZelda

..Yeah, what the Hell IS THIS?

It's #1 for a reason, guys...

- Dawn of Sorrow is one of my most favorite games of all time. Easy pick.
- I like both of these, but I've replayed Cave Story. With Beyond Good & Evil, one play through was enough.

- How is this even a match up? Easy choice.
- I love me some Mega Man X, and the sequel held up surprisingly well. My vote goes to Capcom!

@TheOldManFromZelda Dawn is actually my favorite handheld Castlevania and my second favorite Castlevania period (behind Symphony of the Night.)

Dawn > Aria yeah I said it.

Any more votes? I probably should have bumped this earlier, there's been a pretty weak turnout.

Amongst those who votes on the last ballots, we're missing votes from NinSage, ploot, chrisbg99 and pokefreak911.
