    Bloodborne (3) - The best game of the current generation and one of the best games of all time. Max Payne 3 is really good and underrated though.

    Final Fantasy VI (67) - Trash matchup, this really sucks. FFVI is the better game here though. Sad to see KOTOR out this early.

    Dishonored (99) - Gen 2 is already represented in the second round. Dishonored deserves some love.

    Person 4 Golden (94) - Haven’t played P4G but in hindsight, knowing what becomes of the Mass Effect story in 3, all those choices you make in Me2 are ultimately rendered meaningless so I’m not voting for it.

    Shadow of the Colossus (14) - Haunting and beautiful. A game that really makes you question the act of playing it in the first place. It’s one of the best pieces of evidence that video games are art that has ever been made.

    Call of Duty: Black Ops (51) - Never got into Rocket League. Black Ops is my favorite CoD game of all time so it gets the win.

    Bioshock (19) - Nothing really to say here, it’s just a classic and it deserves to move on.

    Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars (83) - Without this game we wouldn’t have any of the awesome MARIO RPGs that have come out since the SNES era. And it’s a great game in its own right as well.

    Did you remember to grab SotC Remastered when it was free on PS+ a couple months ago?

    Apparently Bluepoint knocked it out of the park with that remaster. Haven’t played it myself yet though.

    I just really hope the rumors are true that Sony was so pleased with the SotC remaster that they assigned Bluepoint to remaster Demon’s Souls next.

    it looks and runs great. i think there was some pretty awful motion blur turned on by default but after removing that it was perfect.

    yeah good okay

    Bloodborne

    FF6 - not my favorite FF but I think it's the best overall. I love the cast of characters and has one of the best video game villains ever. Still need to do a second playthrough.

    Pokemon - I stopped after second Gen, I'll always love these games.

    Persona
    Shadow of the Colossus
    Black Ops (solely for Nazi zombies)
    Bioshock

    Super Mario RPG - currently playing through this one, I swear I'll finish it this time.

    I love Shadow of the Colossus very much. Still havent finished the remake since the game crashed as I beat the 14th colossus and I just didnt want to go back, but it still had a huge influence on me when I originally played it.

    Bloodborne - I'm going to beat it this year motherfuckers


    Final Fantasy 6 - Very close to my favorite FF game, a game I wish more people would experience these days, to think it came out in 1994 is absolutely mind blowing.

    N/A

    Persona 4 Golden - Was playing this until my Vita died, loved everything about it.

    N/A

    Rocket League

    N/A

    Super Mario RPG - One of the greatest RPGs to ever be made, should be played by absolutely everyone on planet earth.

    a note before proceeding: runnin' right down the bracket like this resulted in a lot of top heaviness, and some of these second round matchups are a bit of the same, so for round two i may cherry pick 4 matchups for each thread to keep at least one or two of the bigger matchups in each one. we are getting considerably less votes than we were in the first four threads and i wanna mitigate that.
