Again, for those who haven't seen what I am doing. I am just taking the results of this round and a new 16 will be posted. I am trying to match-up games that are similar in style. Other games like Tetris, RC Pro Am, Punch-Out, etc..will be included when I post the next 16 I just didn't want to blow our load on the first go around. Some people have already had trouble picking off this first list so I didn't want to make it too difficult to choose. I wanted to have a couple tough choices and some that would be preference. If I had put the games people are mentioning I left out on this list ALL the greatest games would have been in the first 16. I wanted to spread out the goodness. I don't want to have a bunch of #1 seeds in the first bracket of 16.

Sorry didn't pick up on the fact that you were definitely doing more brackets....I thought it was just a wait and see thing....good thread though

That was more my fault than anything. I should have made it clearer in the initial post. I edited the initial post to say basically what you just quoted. As a child of the 80's I could never leave Punch-Out, RC Pro Am, Paperboy, Tetris, Dr. Mario, etc..off a comprehensive list. I just want to see how this pans out and if people participate. That's why I rocked the first sixteen and if we only had minimal responses then I'd break it down from 16. If a bunch responded then I was gonna add more games.

super mario 3 - man this game was such a step up from the first two, just classic
zelda - the cheat for contra was great, but i could play zelda any time
metroid - hands down
ninja gaiden - tough one here but ninja gaiden got more play in my house
ultima - another close one
TMNT2 - awesome in the arcade, just ok on the NES but still beats BT and DD
tecmo bowl - lost a ton of hours to this one
castlevania - hands down

Super Mario 3 vs. Super Mario 1
Legend of Zelda vs. Contra
Metroid vs. Metal Gear
Mega Man 2 vs. Ninja Gaiden
Final Fantasy vs. Ultima
TMNT 2:The Arcade Game vs. Battle Toads and Double Dragon
Excitebike vs. Tecmo Bowl
Castlevania vs. Super C

One should not have to decide between Excitebike and Tecmo Bowl.

Very true, but you could have left off Castlevania and Battle Toads and Double Dragon. They both sucked.

Well, in the round of the next 16 I'll be sure to put Skate or Die up against something epic just to mess with you for saying Castlevania sucked.

Now you don't have to choose

I present Super Mario Crossover


I also recommend looking at some other games on the site.
