Tourney Time – Best Video Game Ever

(By YetiVedder)

Here at 5PL, we have had many spirited debates!  Well I was having a conversation this weekend and we literally named 20 amazing video games!

Well we decided to bracket it up!  We have some of the greatest games of all-time going head to head! The battle of the Doubles? Double Dragon vs. Double Dribble. Half-court shots vs. Karate kicks! I can’t even believe Pole Position is a 16 seed! Who made this thing?!



Upset Alert:  Sorry Tony Hawk, but NBA Jam is upsetting you in the first round!  Any time you can play a game as Detlef Schrempf, it is OK in my book! Plus I have never been a skater. Yeti’s don’t skate at all…  ever!

No Brainer:  Grand Theft Auto as a 4 seed??  It should KILL TMNT!  Listen I love the turtles, but in GTA you can do anything including pickup video game hookers!!!

This may just be my inner nerd speaking, but I can’t wait to see the results of this!  I got Punch Out and Tecmo Super Bowl Bowl going far!  Bo Jackson is still running all over the place!

    Good Stuff Curran….Pretty sure Contra is the best game ever (up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, b, a, select, start) tough to lose when u have unlimited lifes. Best sportsgame, never got a lot of play was Little League baseball. Peace!

    This is atrocious. Having Call Of Duty at 13 makes the entire rankings laughable. Then to put it up against Goldeneye in the first round is like Conference foes playing in the first round of the tourney, it shouldn’t be done. I made the mistake of playing Goldeneye, one of my favorite all time games, last year and it completely ruined the game for me. Goldeneye is terrible. Nostalgia is important in ranking games, but does it make up for the fact that all I play now is Call of Duty? Nope!

    @Derek – Little League Baseball was the shit. Texas was a powerhouse, but that damn Chinese Taipei team was nearly unbeatable!
