Best Video Game Ever – Sweet 16 Results

Wow, this shit is getting intense! People are literally going balls to the wall in order to get their favorite video game through to the Elite 8. We’ve had professional baseball players arguing with each other about which video game should move on. As they say in the hood, shoot to kill.

Wait, that doesn’t make any sense. Anyway, here are the Sweet 16 results for the Best Video Game Ever tournament! Voting for the Elite 8 will begin later today!

Region One

No surprises here. The Nos. 1, 2, 3 and 4 seeds all advance without much difficulty. That will leave us with Super Mario Bros. squaring off with Grand Theft Auto in one Elite 8 pairing, and Mortal Kombat taking on Madden in the other matchup. Which game will step up? We’ll just have to wait and find out! (Click on the bracket to enlarge it.)

Region Two

Well, well, well… look what we have here. Region Two was clearly the upset region! It was a short run for top-seeded Zelda as Link was dominated by Mario, Luigi, Wario, Toad and the other key characters in Mario Kart. We also had the No. 7 seed Mike Tyson’s Punch Out squeak by second-seeded Contra. NBA Jam put up a hell of a fight as the No. 12 seed, but in the end, No. 4 GoldenEye was just too strong.

About TheWayIsHere

I’d like to think there is a lot to say about myself, but there isn’t. I founded Fifth Period Lunch with the intent on using the internet to spread gospel and the word of the Good Book. I thought He had a plan for me. Whoops. No, I’m just yanking your chain - I’m actually an atheist. Straylight Run’s John Nolan described both of our lives perfectly when he sang, “I know much more than I did back then, but the more I learn, the more I can’t understand. And I’ve become content with this life that I lead, where I drink too much and don’t believe in much of anything.” I’m married and creeping ever closer to the big 3-0. Despite that, I still enjoy acting like a child, to which my wife can attest. I enjoy microbrews, pinot noir, the Boston Red Sox, the New England Patriots and the Wake Forest Demon Deacons. I believe old people should be forced to take a driving test every year and I have a man-crush on more men than I probably should. Now you know.

    Super Mario Bros vs. Mario Kart in the finals would be epic. Even GTA vs. Mario Kart!
