If I could've voted for Legend of Mana twice I would have.

I'd have voted for Wild Arms twice so it wouldn't have made a difference either way. :D

I've said it before and I'll say it again: Wild Arms actually sucks shit through a straw.

That US opening FMV tho.

edit:
I don't think we're all using the same metrics to determine the quality of a game and there are lots of games that I love really strongly for setpieces that amount to the tiniest fraction of the game. But in this kind of contest, having the highlights of your game easily sharable via youTube is an advantage second only to a large share of players in the voter base.

Like, I don't know how to explain how delightfully weird Legend of Mana is, or how it invites you to explore its world and systems and how it manages your expectations for what you can do within it.

I am incredibly adequate at linking youTube videos however!

19. Megaman X4 [ 7 ]
21. Front Mission 3 [ 10 ]
23. Legend of Mana [ 9 ]
7. Wild Arms [ 7 ]

And thus, a game in which a robot discovers what he's fighting for and then loses an arm later is eliminated from the poll.

Also, X4 lost.

Next up:

1. Resident Evil 2
3. Silent Hill
6. Einhander
22. Klonoa: Door to Phantomile

Last in the round.

This time, I picked games that addressed themes of existential dread and insanity! So- basically still my JRPG schtick!

I don't think you've narrowed it down at all.

Of all four of these, Klonoa simultaneously represents its era while still being the most fun to actually go back and play. Einhander comes very close, as it's eminently playable now, but the PSX era was definitely more an era for 2.5D platformers than it was shmups. I love both RE2 and SH, but they're best enjoyed through remembering them than actually playing them.

1. Resident Evil 2 [ 7 ]
3. Silent Hill [ 5 ]
6. Einhander [ 6 ]
22. Klonoa: Door to Phantomile [ 9 ]

Close match, but RE2 and Klonoa take it.

Advancing: RE2, Klonoa
Eliminated: Silent Hill, Einhander

1. Resident Evil 2
2. Puzzle Fighter 2
3. PaRappa the Rapper
4. Tactics Ogre
5. Mega Man Legends 2
6. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater
7. Final Fantasy Tactics
8. Chrono Cross
9. Valkyrie Profile
10. Front Mission 3
11. Klonoa: Door to Phantomile
12. Legend of Mana
13. Final Fantasy 7
14. Final Fantasy 9
15. Suikoden 2
16. Mega Man Legends

We now enter the Loser's Ro16. RE2 is the only game that has survived being eliminated in the first round of 64 and has fought it's way here. Powerhouses like Suikoden 2 and MML are now in the mix. Only one game can go on to be the Loser's Champion and challenge SotN for the Throne.

First match:

16. Mega Man Legends
8. Chrono Cross
1. Resident Evil 2
5. Mega Man Legends 2

I had hoped that the two Legends would split the vote on those faves. But it looks like that's not the case.

16. Mega Man Legends [ 8 ]
8. Chrono Cross [ 5 ]
1. Resident Evil 2 [ 4 ]
5. Mega Man Legends 2 [ 8 ]

Mega Man Legend(s) make short work of the other, lesser, not on thrones made of skull and blood games.

Next up:

2. Puzzle Fighter 2
13. Final Fantasy 7
6. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater
15. Suikoden 2

Fun fact: Resident Evil 2 and Puzzle Fighter 2 are the only games left in the loser's poll that have been there since the start. (They were moved to loser's from the Ro64).

Since RE2 just was eliminated, if Puzzle Fighter 2 loses here, all the remaining games will be new/er comers to the bracket.

For better or for worse, Final Fantasy VII was the reason I got a Playstation.

FFVII's music was the reason I got one.
