Nintendon't RO 16

Postby Friday » Thu Apr 09, 2020 5:16 pm

Welp, the first I noticed is that somehow, despite being almost right next to each other in the poll since we started, two copies of Alien Soldier have been advancing through both previous rounds and nobody noticed.

So, uh. I'm gonna go ahead and remove one and replace it with Streets of Rage 2, which was the loser of the three way tie in the previous round.

1. Sonic 2
2. Cool Spot
3. Popful Mail
4. Shining Force
5. Alien Soldier
6. Streets of Rage 2
7. Phantasy Star 4
8. Snatcher
9. Lunar Eternal Blue
10. Ecco The Dolphin
11. Shining Force 2
12. Contra: Hard Corps
13. ToeJam & Earl
14. Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles
15. Shinobi III
16. Phantasy Star II

So we've reached the point now where each winner of the following 1v1s will go into the top 8, and therefore get played by me, yours truly.

Hurray!

Our first match up:

9. Lunar Eternal Blue
10. Ecco The Dolphin

I can't in good conscience vote for either of these games over the other.

Sorry Lunar, but there's just one Ecco The Dolphin.

Well, two.

Of these 16, I would pick:
Popful Mail
Streets of Rage 2
Phantasy Star 4
Lunar: Eternal Blue
Ecco The Dolphin
Shining Force 2
Contra: Hard Corps
Sonic 3 & Knuckles
and... two of: (Shinobi III, ToeJam & Earl, Alien Soldier)

Which means, in this matchup, I have to vote for both, or neither.

Jesus Christ, No!
I demand a loser's bracket!

There's going to be a loser's bracket, sort of yes. As you may have noticed, this is only going to put 8 games into 10 slots, so there will be a mechanism to get 2 more games in there.

At this point I'm just voting for the RPGs, so that this takes as long as possible.

Both titles use a Roman numeral, in point of fact.

I have no horse in this race. I'll play a Phantasy Star past 1 when the rest of them get astonishingly good Sega Ages releases. Any day now. . .
