1. A Link to The Past
2. Final Fantasy 3
3. Chrono Trigger
4. SoulBlazer

As has become tradition, the final four will be done all at once, reverting to the 2 vote format before the Grand Finals.

I've always been a bit... interested by how these tournaments go.

For example, in the last one I ran (VG Main Character) Samus ended up winning but was tied with Octodad in a previous round that I broke.

Another example here: In the very first round SoulBlazer and Mario Kart were tied. If I had resolved it the other way, would Mario Kart be here now? I don't know either way.

LttP is obvious to me, but picking between FF3 and CT is fucking hard. CT was more mechanically interesting (and maybe more fun to replay?) but FF3 had far more emotional impact.

LttP had basically no emotional impact, but the gameplay is really satisfying. (ALBW currently tops my 3DS list, too.)

MAYBE I SHOULD PICK FF3 BECAUSE FUCK CONSISTENCY

Soulblazer was fun, but I can't believe it actually got votes in this bracket, unless someone just kind of hated JRPGs.

LttP and CT lead, both with 11 votes.

The killer of SM, FF3, ranks in with 8 votes and goes down.

SoulBlazer puts up a respectable 6 votes.

The Grand Finals:

A Link to The Past
vs
Chrono Trigger

Tough call, but LttP just absolutely sucked me in and enthralled me from start to finish.

The fact that Final Fantasy 3 and Chrono Trigger had 19 votes between them vs. Link To The Past and SoulBlazer with 17 is really all I need to know to predict how this is going to turn out.

Man, now I kind of want to hold some needlessly convoluted elections of my own.

Link to the Past is an indisputable masterpiece that doesn't have Ozzie, Slash, and Flea in it. Sucks for Link to the Past.

Gave LttP extra credit for being the best one of a generally pretty good series. Did not get the clone, did not go to the Mountain, did not collect $200.

Okay, nobody else vote now so it ends up tied and Friday hates us all.

Well, if that's how it's going to be, I feel that I should point out I didn't vote in this one (as someone who hasn't played CT and only played maybe the first two-fifths of LttP, I don't think I have any business deciding this one).
