    Ok so we're now onto our final eight games. They are as follows;

    (1) Ocarina of Time
    (2) Golden Eye
    (6) Super Mario 64
    (7) Halo
    (12) Metal Gear Solid
    (14) Super Mario Bros
    (20) Grand Theft Auto III
    (121) Kingdom Hearts

    What I am going to do with this thread is look in the games in a lot more depth, and also comment on their tourney run for the past four rounds. I'll do this as the night goes on, and I offer you to input your ideas and thoughts on each game.

    I'm cheating by stealing this from my history thread

    The overall seeding was number one gaining a massive 444 votes from the system I used.

    It has beaten; Oregon Trail, Wind Waker, GTA IV and Resident Evil IV. Next round it takes on Kingdom Hearts.

    Whilst I don't think we have our final cemented, I think this match up against Kingdom Hearts is pretty important. It's a hard run for all our competitors, but I think this match up may see one of our finalists.

    Another one from my other posts...

    The overall seeding was number 2 and it gained a total of 407 points using my scheme.

    It has beaten; Aladdin, FFVIII, The Sims and Starcraft. It seems to have taken out a big raange of games...how would it do against a FPS? How about we pit it against Halo? Damn rights we will.

    Damn this game is going to destroy Halo, it deserves to go through...but will it win the next round?! A Goldeneye v SM64 matchup would be pretty damn fine!

    DRUM ROLL PLEASE...LADIES AND GENTLEMEN...IT'S A ME A MARIO

    The overall seeding was 6 and gained a total of 291 points using my scheme.

    It has beaten; Mortal Kombat, Ridge racer, Sonic the Hedgehog and Super Mario Bros 3. Next it takes on the might of the original Super Mario Bros in a match which I think will be a classic.

    I think SM64 will go through here and will make for a very interesting semi final.​

    You are doing a fantastic job here Lee.

    I am really looking forward to the Super Mario crunch match, it will truly be one for the ages, in my opinion. Kingdom Hearts vs OoT will be an absolute classic too and I am really looking forward to the nest round of matches. I am also looking forward to seeing Grand Theft Auto III in action once again.

    Nice job man.

    Halo: Combat evolved
    Halo was seeded #7 and gained 288 points using my scheme.

    It has beaten Diablo 2, Resident Evil 2, Shenmue and Final Fantasy VII. It goes up against Goldeneye 007 and I think this is the end of the run for Halo Combat evolved.

    Metal gear Solid

    Metal Gear Solid was seeded #12 and gained a total of 256 points using my scheme.

    It has beaten tales of symphonia, Final Fantasy II(IV), Half Life 2 and Super Mario World. Next up is GTA III and whilst I want this game to win its next round I think it's too early to call a winner.

    Super Mario Bros
    Overall it recieved a seeding 14 with a total of 245 points using my scheme.

    Thus far it has beaten Shadow of the collosus, Burnout 3, Deus Ex and GOW. Next round it has Super Mario 64 and unfortunately I think this is the game where we realise is princess IS in another castle.

    Grand Theft Auto III

    The game was seeded 20 gaining 177 points using my scheme.

    It has beaten Okami, C&CRA2, Pokemon Red & Blue and Super Smash Bros melee. This round it is up against MGS and whilst it's going to be very close, I personally will be voting against it.

    Kingdom Hearts



    Ok here we go...Kingdom Hearts actually drew seed number 180 using my scheme and only a meagre 22 points. Well how is it it made the final eight games? It was one of my personal wild card picks and it's gone quite damn far. It has beaten street fighter II, Tecmo, Mario Kart Wii and Oblivion and now faces off agains OoT. That should be a damn fine matchup.

    So that's my summary of the top eight...what do you think of the games? Which game do you want to win? Which game do you think will win? Why?

    It has beaten

    I have to disagree with your opinions on Halo. I don't know if it will beat Goldeneye, and my vote is still on the fence, but Halo really is an incredible game. If Goldeneye is the game that makes you stay up until 4 am playing then Halo is the one that makes you not sleep for a week. Halo is just as much a classic as Goldeneye these days. You said, Lee, that Halo is a game that's not very great if you go back and play it, but I play it quite a bit with my friends and still find it awesome. Halo has a great chance.

    Super Mario 64 vs. Super Mario Bros... I have to give this one to SM64, even though I've never loved either game very much. Super Mario Bros., while being a classic, really isn't THAT great. It may be because I've never got past the second level without using the warp area to go to World 5, but it never really interested me that much. SM64 is kind of the same. It's mostly so popular because it's a classic, but I don't think it's as great as people make it out to be. Regardless it beats the original Mario here.

    Metal Gear Solid vs. GTA is a toss up for me. I'll probably go for GTA since I enjoy that series as a whole more than MGS.

    Ocarina of Time vs. Kingdom Hearts has to go to Zelda, despite KH being a very fun game. It's just that this is OCARINA OF TIME. This game revolutionized gaming, and while Kingdom Hearts had some originality it just followed the path of many other games.

    That gives us a final of Ocarina of Time, Grand Theft Auto 3, Super Mario 64 and, I guess I'll go with Goldeneye. If it works that way we could be looking at an amazing final of Goldeneye vs. Ocarina of Time. That may not be very surprising but it will be great no matter what. The game that started FPS against the game that started RPG. Perfect.

    If only Super Smash Bros. had made it through. That, Ocarina of Time, Goldeneye and Super Mario 64 would make the greatest Team Nintendo ever.
