(Quarters, Semis, Finals!) Ludwig's Best. Game. Ever 2015 Votes

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - Eight games to four. Four to two... Two to THE BEST GAME EVER.

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.

Final round GameFAQs Best Game Ever 20th anniversary edition finals contest polls
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 & 2

Friday, 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:

Pokémon Pokemon Red Blue Yellow RBY rallies GameFAQs Undertale KoopaTV
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.

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...!


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

(1) The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time vs. (9) Super Mario RPG

Super Mario RPG is a generic RPG that happens to have King Dad in it and one song everyone likes. Why is it in the semi-finals?

(6) Undertale vs. (1) The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

.........................This is hopeless.

If it's Undertale in Semifinals Part 1, could you give Ludwig a birthday present and vote against it? That'd be fantastic.

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?


  1. I gave you an early birthday present and voted for plumber boy's first adventure in the three dimensional environment. Also voted Melee as a token of thanks for last time.

  2. You know, if you wanted this to be a GameFaqs' user-exclusive contest, you should never have brought it to my attention. xDD It was never set up to be that way. You can't act like Undertale has an unfair advantage because non-users are voting for it when GameFaqs made it very clear people other than GameFaqs users would vote...

    1. Hey, if some of the rallied people stick around the GameFAQs community, it'll be a success.

      These tumblr guys are just coming in to make fun of GameFAQs and troll them. That's just obnoxious.

  3. Hey, didn't you tell me Chrono Trigger would easily crush Smash Bros? So much for that...

    1. Smash Bros. is beginning to irk me, crushing my beloved RPGs like that... What else did its path of destruction take out? ...Kingdom Hearts 2, Pokémon Gold/Silver, and Portal...

      ...............It took me this long to realize this game... is my archnemesis! o_O

    2. Well, looks like your archnemesis and my archnemesis will be doing battle on my birthday in the semi-finals...


      I'm disappointed it took me up 'til now to use that as a caption for something.

    4. You started it! What better way to reply to a game quote than with a game quote?

    5. My quote was a real, respected one!

      Yours is a meme! And one of the only damn lines I hear people say. It's either determination or having a bad time and something else and that's all people freakin' quote and then they say the game has the best writing in gaming or some shit.

    6. Objection!

      ...wait, sorry, that's another meme! *hides*


    8. That's just because you're unfairly biased against Undertale. xD I can imagine someone who thinks Ace Attorney is dumb being just as irritated with someone saying Ace Attorney has good writing if all they hear about it is "Objection!"

    9. But Ace Attorney fans (hopefully) quote more than three quotes from the game in their entirety of existence as fans. Right?

    10. Because you have talked to Undertale fans enough to know those are the only three quotes they use, right? :P To anyone who isn't an Ace Attorney fan, it probably looks like Ace Attorney fans just use a few favorite quotes all the time. ...and oh man, one of them's probably "The miracle never happen," too... XD

      "Stay determined" (shown upon a game over) or "...fills you with determination" (shown at save points) come up with most often because of their frequency, just like how "Objection!" is the most common Ace Attorney quote you'll see.

    11. I've seen Miiverse posts from Undertale fans. I've seen many idiotic tumblr rally posts obviously from Undertale fans. I've seen their Reddit posts, and other places too. Same thing over and over IN THE SAME CONVERSATION TOO.

      (Yeah one of them is definitely "The miracle never happen.")

    12. ...Then I must ask why these people are wasting their time on "stay determined" and one or two other quotes, instead of quoting fun characters Papyrus and Mettaton like they should be!

    13. Ahem. *fun characters LIKE Papyrus and Mettaton

    14. know you can just copy your comment, make a new one, paste it, correct it, publish that, and delete the old one?

      Anyway, I dunno, WHY ARE THEY?
      I dunno anything about Mettaton besides that apparently he's really attractive...?

    15. Oh right, I should have done that. ^_^;; I was just so excited, I wrote my new comment without thinking!

      They're foolish fools, that's why!

      Mettaton is a robot who has been programmed for two purposes: show business, and to kill you.

    16. Uhh... okay?

      I take it either you really hate Mettaton, or there was something wrong with the video I didn't notice. XD

    17. That whole video was painful to watch. And I got to the end. It was soooo cringe.

      A lot of that is probably the sound effects.

    18. Like the text noises? Oh, I love them. It's like a cross between Ace Attorney's text sounds and Banjo-Kazooie's mumble-speak. xDD

      But I think the true lesson here is that you'll never like Undertale, because while that's not my favorite Mettaton moment, it still makes me laugh. So I shall bow out in defeat...

    19. I'd rather listen to Koopa Klown Kar's side-b in a laggy match (which is basically a buzzsaw) than the robot's text noise.

    20. Aww, it's not THAT bad a sound, is it???

      Oh, and Happy Birthday!

  4. Melee might actually come back and take it! It's neck and neck right now.

    1. I updated the article with a picture featuring Iwata. I'm going to spread it.

      That should help.

      Melee briefly had a lead change, but then Undertale got updates out of nowhere (honestly, it's probably...not doing it in a valid way) and took the lead back.

    2. Yeah, you're not the only one who noticed that. I was there when Melee overtook it, and Undertale simply hate hundreds of more votes within a couple of minutes. They ARE cheating, and it's really getting infuriating. They're ruining this for everyone else.
