Trading carrots for chocolate pudding since 2012.
One region we had complete chalk. The other we have Cinderella stories! I can’t wait to see what games will be moving on! We have our fans of the old school cheering on Super Mario and Tecmo Super Bowl, while the fans of the best quality stuff will be pulling for Grand Theft Auto. My bracket has been totally blown up! Zelda losing in the second round!? NBA Jam’s fire was simply put out by a little game called GoldenEye! Can GoldenEye keep the momentum going? I’m not so sure. Voting will run until noon on Friday!
Here is what I think about games advancing to the Final Four:
Super Mario Bros. Vs. Grand Theft Auto: I think this match up is great! The old school vs. the new school! Do we go with Mario and Luigi saving a princess or some dude beating civilians and picking up hookers? I honestly think that Super Mario is too strong and a heavy favorite in this tourney. I think it will be closer then folks think, but Mario moves on!
Mortal Kombat Vs. Madden: Get over here vs. Boom! Madden is a beast! Every year, football players fight to be on the cover of this legendary game. But Mortal Kombat is the best one-on-one fighting game ever. Madden has the Madden curse and it will be cursed in this round of the tourney. When Madden is up against the ropes, it will unfortunately hear the words “Finish him.” Mortal Kombat lives to see another day.
Mario Kart Vs. GoldenEye: Mario is back for more! The only repeat performer. I guess Mario’s popularity is so much bigger then Sonic and Zelda. BUT Mario loses to Bond, James Bond. Countless hours have been lost playing GoldenEye. I feel like Mario Kart just doesn’t hold the same addiction that GoldenEye does. You can stop when you want. GoldenEye was a game you missed class for, Mario Kart was not. GoldenEye moves on!
Tecmo Super Bowl Vs. Tyson’s Punch Out: This is the hardest one for me to predict as these are my favorite games ever. I just don’t think Little Mac can win this one. Tecmo is like facing Tyson for the first time. One punch and you’re out! It is legendary. LT on defense? Barry Sanders or Bo Jackson running the ball! Andre Reed catching 100-yard bombs from QB Bill!? I just can’t go against it! I won’t! As much as I love Tyson’s Punch Out… Tecmo wins!
My Final Four?
Super Mario Bros. vs. Mortal Kombat
GoldenEye vs. Tecmo Super Bowl
I’m so excited I could carve my initials into a window using my nipples!
