The GameFAQs Best. Game. Ever contest will have its last day on Tuesday, December 15. Not counting bonus polls. Same day as the Super Smash Bros. 4 Direct, and Night 5 of the Republican Presidential Debates! So that'll be a busy day.
But before we get there, we need to go through the quarter-finals. And then the semi-finals. And since we'll be going through this quickly, might as well dedicate this one article to the rest of the contest!
You can participate and vote here. You don't need to have an account or anything.
|It's three rounds in one article, so... Let's just write "FINALS" in a funky font.|
See my Round 4 picks here. The quarter-finals are two a day, the semi-finals are one a day, and the finals is one. There may be bonus polls afterwards. This article will be updated Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday, so be sure to check out this page then.
Quarterfinals 1 & 2Friday, December 11, 2015
(3) Super Smash Bros. Melee vs. (2) Final Fantasy VII
(6) Undertale vs. (3) Super Mario 64
Let's be very clear here. Since Pokémon couldn't defeat Undertale, that means Undertale is virtually unstoppable unless we are all unified in taking it down. Apparently, half of the Pokémon fanbase despises Pokémon Red/Blue/Yellow. I'm not a fan either, but I'm not going to sabotage the effort to eliminate Undertale! Remember, Undertale is not winning because of GameFAQs users. It's winning because the tumblr-based fanbase is invading GameFAQs to ruin the contest to make a statement. And they love using the word "salty" to describe the reactions they want to give us.
KoopaTV was recognised by GameFAQs users to be on the frontlines in the attempt to rally for Undertale's defeat:
|It was an honour to contribute to the quantity of rallies and be half of his examples. |
However, the quality was... lacking, unfortunately.
Anyway, Super Smash Bros. Melee only survived to defeat Chrono Trigger by having its own rally. Otherwise, Chrono Trigger would've destroyed it. Since Melee has proven it can rally as well and Final Fantasy VII has proven over the years that it's pretty poor at doing that, then we need to promote Super Smash Bros. Melee to fight Undertale when Super Mario 64 will lose.
...Plus, it's the game I like the most out of the eight remaining.
By the way, shout-downs to this Twitter discussion with Bala, who is obviously wrong on both of his assertions about Undertale as of minutes before publishing:
|Super Mario 64 is losing faster than any other game Undertale has faced.|
|BUT... THE FUTURE REFUSED TO CHANGE.|
Quarterfinals 3 & 4:Saturday, December 12, 2015
(1) The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time vs. (1) The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
(9) Super Mario RPG vs. (3) Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater
It's humourous that Super Mario RPG won its division and may very well be a semi-finalist when Divisions 7 and 8 were basically the divisions where all of the non-Nintendo and non-Square Enix games went. And here's the game combining the two! ...Still my least favourite game here, besides Undertale.
Oh, um, I like A Link to the Past's opponent better. That's an acceptable opinion I don't need to justify, right?
Semifinals Part 1:Sunday, December 13, 2015 (Ludwig's birthday!)
(3) Super Smash Bros. Melee vs. (6) Undertale
Super obvious decision for me. There is no way I'm picking Undertale in this tournament ever again, and Super Smash Bros. Melee is my favourite game left. And one of my favourite games when the whole tournament started. The key to victory here is to rally the entire Super Smash Bros. community. If they're resistant or apathetic, then it won't work...!
|LET'S DO IT!!!!|
It seems that Super Smash Bros. Melee is rallying really hard, but Undertale is able to parry it at every moment since it briefly took the lead. So I ask you this: Please vote for Super Smash Bros. Melee... for former president Satoru Iwata. He was absolutely instrumental in the game being able to exist.
|Iwata is SMAAAASH!!-ing the Vote button for Super Smash Bros. Melee. So should you.|
Semifinals Part 2:Monday, December 14, 2015

Finals:Tuesday, December 15, 2015
(6) Undertale vs. (1) The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
If you really want to know how the final match turned out...
Let us pretend this never happened, and go to a dream world where only Ludwig's opinion mattered... Who would win THAT?
